    now, you've left me and I feel empty.
    I never understood why people hurt themselves, but now I do--to feel something because you're so empty inside. I'm not into self-harm through (stereotypical) external means, but I literally feel a deep downward pull in my heart, so I guess it's better than utter despair.

    I feel my eyes tear, but the tears don't fall.

    I know I'm naive and I'm too trusting of others, but she felt like my soulmate. I told her things I've never told anyone. I guess that would happen when you talk to someone for no less than eight hours a day, everyday. I mean, we once spoke for sixteen hours straight. We broke night together many times--I was sleeping 3-4 hours a day, but happy to get to know her more--she was really special to me.

    So, I'm going to be sad, that's probably about it.
    Beli, if you read this, I loved your work, and you, too
    Beli.
    I don't know ______, but I wrote a poem for you, Beli, because of you




    One cloud rose up to shield you from the sun.
    Two times did the wind blow.
    Three leaves fell by your side.
    Four days pass since we spoke.
    Five days until I see you again.
    Six tears dried.
    Seven seas of turmoil.
    Eight gates separate unity.
    Nine years of false peace.
    Ten times over.

    I'll always love who you are, Beli, even if this was fate, too.

    H1B1Esquire This is my outlet of dissatisfaction between the world and myself.
    With the inability to honestly express myself, I choose to better you(s).....or close to it.


    I call this recurring nightmare: Daily Recs

    Thursday (Apr. 11): Play games from generation 1-4 (don't forget to check out MAME). Research hacked games, find translations of games you never knew of. Have a spoonful of ice cream. Text someone you haven't spoken with because they didn't text back that one time. Clean one thing around you that you haven't cleaned since last month. Look at an animal video that doesn't include a Walrus.

    Friday: Under construction; check back later.

    H1B1Esquire So, I have a celebrated birthday (when your birthday falls on a"holiday", yada-yada), but this year, Nintendo really outdid themselves:
    tendo 1. tewndo 2. tendo 4. tendo 5.

    So, a bit ago, Nintendo would give you a wall paper and a 30% off coupon, but this year......I have eight more presents!
    Anyone want to bet what Nintendo gives when they work with Schrödinger's toilet?

    Official background

    I write some interesting blogs you won't see beaten to death (unless I choose to parody), but this oddity of a piece is for the growth of your mind and the truths you may come to eventually face.

    You might have faced this last week, maybe not. You might never face this if you're a lame piece of shit and that's okay, too.

    This won't save your soul. This won't save your parents marriage. This won't get you into college.

    This is a magic mirror. This mirror will show you more than your reflection today, right now.

    The video I linked is a trailer to a documentary about three kids who lived and grew up in Illinois. They all came from different backgrounds. They all had their own problems.

    They are you and I. They are your: brothers, fathers, classmates, neighbors; those motherfuckers down the road.

    While I watched it, I definitely felt reminded of my youth. While I can't say it's a 1-to-1 copy, I was able to relate to a lot of what was filmed.

    Throughout the (roughly) 90-minute documentary, I felt like I was reliving my teenage years. Then, I felt like I was reliving my twenties. And by the end of it, I felt like I should be video-calling these guys--"Hey man, I just saw you on TV!"--it was that true to the life of a teen in America during the 2000's.

    If you do take it upon yourself to watch this all the way through, I believe you'll become a better person.

    Why?

    I believe you'll realize everyone has some kind of pain; no one is immune. I believe you'll be exposing yourself to something so unprocessed, you might have trouble looking at Kraft cheese.

    I also believe if your life is like any of their lives, you can use this Oscar-nominated (for Best Documentary) magic mirror to see your life unapologetically unfolded, year by year.

    Better yourself.

    Fuck your bandwagon--I'm a [​IMG]

    Though, while a picture is worth a thousand words, you can probably use less than a thousand words, if you know how to use words. For example, don't put up a "Free shit!"-sign, then tell people, "Naw, that ain't free; thass gon' cos yu a dolla, boi." when you probably could have added, "Free shit on this table--only, Motherfuckers!" Funny enough, if I moved the comma, (Free, shit on this table--only Motherfuckers!), I'd end up with a fucker of mothers shitting on a table, for free.

    One sentence that really made me realize the power of punctuation:
    "Let's eat Grandma'!" VS "Let's eat, Grandma'!"; one sentence makes you a cannibal and one sentence makes you considerate.

    With a command of English, you can effectively change the world; take for example, this:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winston_tastes_good_like_a_cigarette_should

    If that one person never wrote them, the ad would probably have remained the same. And, the world was changed. Bob Ross could have called it a "HLA", but....he didn't.


    So, TL;DR
    Fuck your bandwagon, bitches.
    Use words and punctuation properly.
    Spread salt sparingly, just to season, but make sure it permeates the beef.
    Wipe your own ass--it's your shit.

    I actually had to have a "Critical Thought"-moment:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    com·mu·ni·ty kəˈmyo͞onədē/
    noun

    1. a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. "Rhode Island's Japanese community" synonyms: group, body, set, circle, clique, faction;

    2. a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. "the -sense of community that organized religion can provide"
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------


    After @ Costello asked, "...what other independent gaming site can you think of....", it made me reflect on what I said a while ago about the uniqueness of this site (I can't find it; go on your own Brodyquest), but pretty much, like a real community, we should value others' opinions to the best extent we can; if not, we should, at the very least, be willing to view it from another perspective and step out of our own
    milieu
    and try to understand what someone else may be going through, understand how to take things with a grain of salt, understand people will usually have a reaction to the things you say, mean, or do, and the response may not always be the reflected intention. There are mistakes in this thing called "life", but there are also erasers and backspace buttons; while not every thing can be taken back, much like certain
    changes (include David Bowie at your own discretion)
    , we can do the best we can to get the desired result.

    So, like any community, things can't always be perfect and universal law/human nature will pretty much dictate that an organism will do its best to adapt and survive, looking out for number one. That isn't always the case, but at its primal core, even the cells in your body do this. While not 100% (use viruses, bacteria and lysosomes as an example), looking out for yourself has been ingrained into our everything. Using bacteria to further an example, human science has developed methods to "fight" bacteria; our knowledge led us to utilize materials to help and harm number one. We used our collective efforts for advancement. A fragment of a construct; the workings of "community".

    I guess if you can take away one thing from this: yes, you are unknowingly always looking out for yourself, but you can use your mind to look out for others. If you have the ability to help someone, do it. Understand not everyone is on the same level. [​IMG] Help other organisms when you can--assist to the best of your ability, while trying to minimize self-harm. Never live your life with a "Holier-than-thou" attitude.

    Life is a bitch and she fucks everybody.

    I went to the IWU, did the adulting--might start my apprenticeship mid-June; great for me.


    Then, I played the lotto. WTF.
    oofio, WeedZ, WaluigiMan and 2 others like this.
    H1B1Esquire I've exhausted a fair amount of characters this morning (the morning Iran and Israel shoot missles at each other), so this is going to be whatever.

    I've made about $17,000 in six months working at a warehouse. I operate a Taylor-Dunn; I pretty much do real life Mario Kart:
    [​IMG]
    as in, I drive around in laps, at high speeds, collecting items, while aiming to finish as fast as possible. I'm able to fit 75 items (various auto parts such as: plate discs, fenders, bumpers, rims, arm assemblies, springs, coils, rods, columns, lamp combs, clusters, etc,--a bunch of heavy shit basically) on my rig--and I do it fast. I work harder than three people and more accurately, as well. When they pick up two disc plates, I pick up fifteen; I work hard.

    I also operate a Crown and Raymond Order Picker
    [​IMG] & [​IMG]

    picking doors, hoods, crossbars, mounts, trunk lids, bonnets, windshields, bigger plate discs, bigger rims, etc,--thirty feet or more.

    I even do reach truck
    [​IMG]
    for when fuckers order a 485 Kg pallet of disc plates (you fuckers), pallets of arm assemblies, transmissions--shit Hulk could actually use as a weapon.

    I do my job well; my productivity is at 107%. I work 10 hour days, Monday through Friday.
    I even assist new employees, old employees, the cleaning ladies, the top brass, the middle brass, security guards, the dudes who actually load the truck after I stock the cages--I help everyone do everything to get shit out the door on time.

    I've gone from a 34'' waist to 29'' and built muscle like a motherfucker (and I fuck mothers, if you can read that back to yourself, because you know what I mean)

    Recently (Monday), I got sick, but had to keep working. I'm a man and can't bitch out because I don't feel well and that led to me crushing my thumb under a bumper from about five feet on a concrete floor--I can't feel 20% of my thumb.

    I don't have time to fill a workmans comp out and wait for benefits--I only have time to work and keep things afloat, so I'm starting another job (another warehouse) in-between me starting an apprenticeship for an iron worker. After I become skilled (above journeyman, I guess) I can make about $23.00 an hour.

    Now for the ice cream and cake:

    I bought a lot of shit, did a lot of shit, made a lot of bets, lost a lot of things, ordered a bunch of stuff, paid for numerous services, took care of business, lived good, suffered, had animals die (old age and maybe heartbroken that I wasn't around) got into a lot of fights, got a couple scars, paid bills, made nightmares and dreams come true.

    I almost had a kid, turned down a marriage proposal, started writing a script, got a part in a play, had fuckers squelch on debts, and during that time, I tried to stay "active" on the temp, to keep my sanity from stress at every turn--what the fuck was I thinking to call the temp "an attempt to keep my sanity"?

    I swear, I thought some terrible thoughts, but I'm taking it in stride.

    This is why I'm following a lot of you--those I follow, I respect: for what you say, for what you do, things you've done, work you've put in, and just generally being you. For years, I was like, "follow me and I'll follow you", but that's a bitch mentality. Straight-up, some of you don't get credit for the things you do--you get whiny asslicks complaining about bullshit. So for now, following you is the bet I can do. Some of you (who I don't follow, with the exception of one) are just kind of oblivious......while others, better hope I don't setup a blood cult. Kidding!

    So pretty much, yeah, I am all fucked up on level three adulting. I'm probably going to die an early death from overworking, but I just wanted you to know: I fuckin' cared.

    P.S. some bitches are going to be bitches and I'm going to haunt the fuck out of you.

    H1B1Esquire Time for a recap episode.

    I've seen some shit, some of it was pretty bad, some of it was good.

    TV:
    Bong Appetit
    Good show.
    Big Brother 19
    So glad Paul didn't get $500K.


    Australian Survivor (season 4)
    Don't even care who wins now, just glad it wasn't A.K.


    The Undateables
    Totally proves people with disablilties can find someone in their life. It doesn't always work out, but it is interesting to see what life is like for other people.


    South Park - Season 21
    Glad they went back on the "no trump" thing.

    American Dad!
    When the other shows went on break, AD! kept rolling and, it's a good show FOX lost.....like Futurama.






    Animoo:

    Made in Abyss
    I checked this out by accident because of the meh animoos--whoa. This starts of light and gets heavy.

    The King of Fighters: Destiny
    Surprisingly decent. I like KoF (game) and I know other shows based on games are a little painful to watch--this made a decent transition.

    Movies:

    Cult of Chucky
    Saw it early and it's good. You have to know about Chucky to get an idea of what's going on; you definitely will not fully enjoy this movie if you didn't grow up watching previous films.


    LEATHERFACE (2017)
    I did not enjoy this movie. It was like having to piss while watching a bad movie--you hope it gets better, but you have to pee and you're afraid you might mis something good...but you really won't and pissing would have been a better option. A playthrough of RE:7 on film would have been a better choice for all the money wasted....hell, maybe even RE:6.


    Shogun Assassin
    I didn't expect much from this, but it delivered and I was glad I watched it. Obviously the 80's were a different time, but I don't think they could do a movie like this today. Probably not for kids, only because you'll add cheap, shitty Whine to the Gouda cheese. Bitches.


    The Holy Mountain
    Wow. Wow. Wooooow. Definitely not for kids. I was amazed with what you could do/get away with in movies from the 70's. One tidbit that could have changed the world: the guy who made this film would have been the guy to make the film, Dune, and Mick Jagger would have replaced Sting. Strange world.

    Escape Room (2017)
    It's an interesting concept on the evolution of Haunted Houses and this movie did it better than
    Terds
    , which was a reaaaalllly long infomercial that could have been "Behind the scenes on Travel Channel's, We're Blowing Money Doin' Stupid Shit! F-Yeah, Doggy!", without question.


    It (2017)
    Good-ish-decent movie, a little pandering, but I've seen some really bad re-imagining before.

    Can't wait to see the return episodes/premiers for Fall, barring a few ABC shows. Anticipating Halloween movies. Animoo better step its game up; it feels like for every one good animoo, there are ten ass-sauce animoo's.
    H1B1Esquire @Foxi4

    Game of future past


    So, that took me a few days of sifting through many, many magazines and I think I know what comes after the 3DS: Nintendo phone/NintendoXAT&T. It'll probably have a detachable controller and all the other features of an iPhone/Galaxy 7, depending on how the market looks. I guess it'll be out by 2019/20. Look at how long a 3-D handheld took; this magazine is from 1999.


    And just for fun:
    Why are you crying about $59.99+tax?
    Looks like things didn't change too much.

    Think the 90's-early 2000's weren't golden times?

    Only $249.00+tax. It's just a small loan of a million dollars. Too bad they couldn't feel the sunshine.

    H1B1Esquire I'd just like to say, those were a lot of laughs, thanks to the guy who updated his 3DS to 11.3 and cursed Nintendo out with threats of suing. You gave 191 people a good laugh. There were some scares and thrills, but if I'm going out, I'm going out in style



    I'm totally going to get a Big the Cat costume and join in the Sonic XXX dancers club.
    H1B1Esquire Stuck your thumb up your ass?

    Super hard-core joking, but really, have you ever thought of what it's like to be in someone's shoes? What if you worked on a project ceaselessly for months and you were praised at one point, then, everywhere you looked, people started calling your work, 'garbage' just because?

    I'm not trying to start an inferno or publicly attack anyone, but I'd be pissed if I created something legitimately good and took a break to pursue other goals in my life, then came back to a mountain of posts describing my work as, 'trash' when it works as intended.

    It almost seems childish to openly bash something, rather than state facts and reasons as to why your suggestion should be supported. Respect is a nice thing.

    I don't want to set the world on fire, I just want to start respect in thread posts. In my blog, I have but one desire and that one is: think how you'd feel and what actions would you take when you're unfairly criticised, with no outward expression?
