friday night at the arcade

written by owen, 2004-Jan-26

I skipped my usual friday night - night club / code fest / church for a trip to the arcade to see what was new. As usual nothing had changed much. No women there whatsoever. On a rare occasion there would be a new machine to waste your money on or player who has found a new way to cheat the crowd.
As I could only play one game and didn't I much respect for the like of street fighter. The arcade was not the same without challengers. Guys who would hang out at the arcade seemingly for days with the sole purpose of kicking your ass in whatever game you played.
So far after 4 years of playing the same game over and over again, I can safely say that I'm better than 90% of the population. Some girlfriends would say it a complete waste of time but they have problems. All things considered I vaguely agree with thier point especially when I have 3 kids waiting on me at home, when I go out to the night club. Go shorty it's your birthday.

Robert commented: Back in the 80's there was a 3D space fight/trading game called 'Elite' in which you started of as Harmles, and had to earn your status, working your way up to Dangerous, eventualy Deadly, and if you were up to the challange - Elite! Between trading like crazy to earn enought to buy weaponry for my ship, and blasting my way around the gallaxy to earn my status, this game realy eat up my time - but I got to say, it was worth it! By the way, do you ever play for money? Does anyone take bets? ... read 7 more

gal no uptodate wi deport dem

written by owen, 2004-Jan-15

I being trying to thing up some new content (again). Especially for people who are hip on todays local culture, looking for porn or listen to dancehall music.
I've been informed that my website is too geek. While I was really going for the simple look - which it seems I have achieved. If you don't this this site is simple and easy to understand then your just crazy fool.
AS for new content I'm planning to have a wheels section with pictures of really expensive cars and shit. Plus random pictures of people I see in the local morgue or dance.
As my nephew was kind enough to inform me - di site need hype

boble snogle

written by owen, 2004-Jan-13

I noticed I'm getting alot of these dumb "home work" questions. I can't believe that people actually type "I want to ask a question" in boble!
Most people would like having hundreds of random hits but it isn't really fun anymore.
Even though I get the occassional stupid question and hate mail. What good is if I don't get comments? I guess it the gradual progression of websites. first it's the whole design, concept, boble love, user interaction and then finally to get a couple hundreds smart people to join your site.
boble tends to have random unpredictable results at times. Usually it works just fine.
I guess all I need is a little time, to get behind the sun and catch this wave.

2003 year in review

written by owen, 2004-Jan-9

Writing a review for a whole year is most likely impossible or a complete waste of time. Plus if you have to read a review for an entire year then chances are you have wasted a whole year and you are about to waste another year catching up on a year that has already passed you by - slacker. This observation might change next year at which point I will have to write another review.
The was the whole iraq issue. One thing lead to another and people started to die. The new york blackout, 50cent, bush, kobebryant and reality tv shows everywhere.
The important thing is that we learn from the good things we did last year and stop player hating people. ok

happy holidays

written by owen, 2003-Dec-17

We had a house party on friday, well actually they had a house party and it happen to be at my house. Surprisingly only one causality who had to be brought home because she had a little too much to drink and a little too little to eat. Nobody was killed and nothing was stolen (yet to be discovered). On the menu were a couple cases of ice, 20 2 liter bottles of soda, chicken, rice and peas. Complete with a sound system banging out the latest dancehall music such as sean paul, elephant man, kartel, etc. It was quiet impossible to sleep during this altercation so I just sorta stood around, watched everybody and drank a liter of caffeinated soda. I didn't know anybody, wasn't much of a dancer, drinker or mingler so I slept through some of it. When the sleep failed I stood around trying to look as less of a nerd than usual.
Well if you don't see me - happy holidays to all. if I find a computer I'll post something next week - if not then it'll be the other week. Eat and avoid killing other people as much as possible. If push comes to shove - shoot in the legs as many times as necessary.
I have some new sections planned for 2k4. In the mean time I like to wish all readers and everybody else a happy whatever you celebrating time.
