Grand Theft Auto IV

I'm really excited about the new Grand Theft Auto. If you don't know why, then let's start by watching this video.



First off, look at those graphics. Compared to the other GTA's, they are amazing. They look so real. Normally, I don't really care about graphics (the gameplay is much more important to me). But these are so good, that I can't help but be amazed by them. I've played past GTA's before, so I know the gameplay will be fun. I love open world games like this, and this city looks amazing. Another reason why I love GTA is the detail, and all the previews I've seen for this game have shown tons of little inside-jokes and small details that I'm really excited to play.

This game looks so good to me, that I am actually going to go buy and Xbox 360 just for this game. I've been wanting one for a while, but this game make me 100% sure that I should get one. This one game is affecting my purchasing decision. I've got the cash, I'm just waiting for my checks to clear and for the game to be in my hands. Then I'm heading out to the nearest store to get me a 360. Then the following months will probably involve just me playing GTAIV. I can't wait.

We All Have to Burn Something

Since that big ska concert is coming up, I'm going to be listening to a lot of their music. So, to start it off, I've been listening to some Suburban Legends.

I first tried the album "Rump Shaker". It was pretty good for a ska album, and has some pretty awesome tracks on it. "Blingity Bling" is probably my favorite song on that album. Now, whenever I see people talking about this band, they always say that they suck. This was weird to me, Suburban Legends sounded pretty good to me. But then I listened to their latest album, titled "Infecious".

Now this album can be described in one word: disco. It is seriously a disco album, with only a smattering of trumpets. But no ska in sight. Let's get this straight, if they play any disco during the concert, I'm going to freak out. I couldn't even listen to the whole album, I was just not enjoying a single second of it. So I don't have high expectations for this band live.

Now I'm progressing to Big D. I've already listened to a lot of their stuff, but a refresher is nice. "How It Goes" is great, and so is pretty much the rest of their stuff. So they should be pretty awesome live.

This Rock Show's Totally Bitchin'

Woah.

It's been a while. A long while. But I'm still here. So here's a quick post.

Spring break came and went. Didn't do much, just watched tv and played video games. Beat the second Phoenix Wright. Also beat the Subspace on Brawl a while back. But it was nice to not have school for a long time. Getting back into the school mode wasn't hard though.

Probably the biggest thing that happened lately was the announcement of the next ska show in Omaha. What do you get when you add Goldfinger plus Less Than Jake multiplied by Bid D and the Kids Table to the power of Suburban Legends? A night of skanking, that's what. Should be a great night.

For my biotech class, we had to write an essay about the future of biotechnology in the future for our semester final. So I quickly BS'd the whole thing in a couple of minutes. Turns out my teacher entered it into some competition, which I have somehow gotten first place in the district in. Yesterday I got a check for $150. And I could get even more in the national finals. So I will easily be able to afford Goldfinger tickets, plus a little saving could let me get an Xbox360. I'm really psyched for Grand Theft Auto 4 (it's got Jimmy from Murphy's Law in it!) so I'll have to get that too. Man, I'm freaking lucky sometimes...
