Hey Everybody.

I’m not all the way back to blogging on a regular schedule yet, but I’m getting there.

not too much to report right now other than one of my favorite Game Franchises God of War will be releasing a collection that will have a remastered in HD, Trophy-enabled version of the first two games of this series. The game will sell for $40 this Holiday season, and I’m really thinking of buying it, even though I have WORKING copies of them for the PS2.

Yes, they work with my PS3, because I was smart impatient enough to get one of the Backward-Compatible models when they first released. Oh, I did a Mini-article over at Platform Nation to spread the news to the gaming world. I’m still having fun writing for those guys, I just need to start looking for articles/game review opportunities so I can continue to get my name out there.

The True Blood Season Finale will be on September 13, 2009 @ 9pm. They are going to give everyone a chance to get caught up with the last 3 episodes September 6,2009. From the previews, this season finale is going to be epic !!!

I noticed that MellownMighty has made a small return to the blogging world, go check out her site.

This week get a free side salad from OneFresh Stir-Fry when you say “Listen or Loose”. There’s a story behind it…

College Football Season, is around the corner. This will be the first time in 3-4 years where I won’t be getting up @ 7am to work for the G&G crew (love the new web site guys !!!)  I miss them already; I might have to make a special appearance during a game day just to cheer them on.

I want to take this time to ask all of you out there to send a special prayer out to the family of my Fairy DogMother. She’s going through some things with her family, and can use all the prayers she can get.

That’s about it for now guys… Until next time !!!

Well, it’s summer time…

I started a “Tales from the Cuckoo’s nest”  series on my blog last week. Anytime something “unique” happens at work, there should be a blog following. Here’s part 1, and part 2. I almost feel like i’ve come full circle with this blog.

Moving day is getting closer… I need to increase my packing efforts, I promised my friends that everything would be packed and ready to go the day of. I’m still churning out articles over at Platform Nation, and I really do enjoy it and hopefully I can continue my efforts with them.

The weekend went pretty quickly. I saw True Blood on Sunday… I’m not gonna ruin it for anyone that missed it but… No, Mary-Anne you DIDN’T tell me that.

The series is starting to really pick up the pace; there are so many things to keep track of. What’s YOUR favorite “new discovery” for the season ??

*yawn*

Is it Monday already ???

The weekends seem to just speed through…

Since Last Week, I had one big blog discussion on here talking about the “Gentlemigga“. It’s been a while since I wrote such a popular blog; I almost forgot what it felt like. Saturday was the Probate for Zeta Phi Beta Sororority Inc. over at FSU. I want to say congratulations to those new ladies; I didn’t see the show because I had a prior engagement, but I heard it was good. If anyone has pictures/video let me know because I’d like to see it.

I think my allergies have gotten better. I’m not sure if it’s the claritin or not…

Moving day is getting closer…

I’ve been really busy over at Platform Nation. If you are a video game fan, you should check them out.

This week, if you say “Malts and Shakes” you get a free topping over at OneFresh Stir-Fry.

I feel like I should be talking about something else…

I’ve been purposely avoiding the recent deaths of all the celebrities. Personally, there are PLENTY of resources out there for each of those untimely deaths, there’s no need for my 2 cents. My thoughts and prayers go out to the respective families.

NCAA Football 2010 comes out this week. I’m currently debating if I should start doing “news reports” about that again… A lot of people were confused last year, so I’ll think about it.

The new Harry Potter movie comes out this week also; I’m thinking about going to the midnight showing from a journalistic point of view. I’m all too curious to see how many people will dress up as their favorite character.

wingardium leviosa !!!

Wingardium Leviosa !!!

That’s all I have for today. I didn’t see all of TrueBlood last night. I plan on watching it tonight.

Oh… and if you haven’t, PLEASE see “The Hangover”. That is all.


Busy

July 10, 2009

I don’t want my readers to think I’ve been neglecting them… it’s just that I’ve been busy writing articles for Platform Nation !!!

If  you are a video game fan, you should go check them out and tell your friends.  In the past 10 days, I’ve written

I’m specifically writing this because I was given the opportunity to break the news about a new Screen-shot for Tekken 6.

I’m not going to post the picture here, but you should go see it there

Hopefully nothing like this happened to any of my readers…

I’m starting to feel a little bit better, my sinuses aren’t killing me as much as they were over the weekend. It’s the first Monday in July, which means I SHOULD be doing a monthly update of everything I wrote about in June; Alas, it was mainly Monday updates and and the new facebook vanity url thing. Naturally, I’ve apologized to everyone and I’m trying to do better. I really am.

Last night, instead of showing a new episode of True Blood, they did a recap mini-marathon. Last night was your night to get caught up all in one shot. If you missed it, I’m sorry; but if you’re a “real fan” you would have already known and recorded this on Tivo AND VHS (I didn’t do that, I just watched it on tv like a “normal fan”)

I’m telling you, this series never ceases to amaze me. They give you just enough slow time to catch your breath for the next wave of crazy stuff they insist on sending your way.

Is it me, or does the “golden boy” resemble Tim Tebow… No?

I’ve been working on articles over at Platform Nation. I’ve written 10 articles for them now. Go read them:

  • My first one dealt with Kingdom Hearts 358/2 getting a “release date” from Gamestop.
  • Then I spoke about Monster Hunters coming for the PSP (btw, I’m taking donations for the PSP Go)
  • This is the article I used to get the opportunity to write with these guys. This one dealt with the E3 Video game conference.
  • This is my first Video game Review; it was for the Sony Exclusive “inFAMOUS” I had to beat the game in a week.
  • This article spoke about the Playstation Videogame magazine known as “Qore”
  • Then I Did a review for “Trash Panic” which was essentially Tetris in a Trash Can.
  • Free Realms is getting Guild Support, which was news for me; even though I’m still waiting on PS3 Support
  • Then there was my review for Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires. For some reason, I just kept putting this game on hold.
  • There’s a soundboard for the iPhone coming out that’s pure evil.
  • Finally, I noticed something that BestBuy is cooking up over there in way of a PS3 Bundle.

And that’s all about all I’ve written so far for those Guys. Tell your video game friends to go read them and leave comments… I’ll only get into the “big leagues” if they notice that people like my work. If you don’t like my work, tell me what I can change.

Moving Day is about 4 weeks away, I am quite excited. I’m on box hunting duties until then.

And Finally…

A little kitty told me that there is something on the horiZon this Saturday. If you are in the area, there’s going to be a health fair first from 5-6pm, and then the  Spring 2009 ladies of the Ravishing Rho Kappa chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority inc. will be having their probate at 6pm on the Union Green; that area that’s BEHIND the Union. I’m gonna try to be out there to record and blog about it…


Monday 33

I don’t even know WHERE to start honestly…

First: Prayers for the families of ALL the celebrities who passed over the weekend. No matter your opinions of the people who passed, they were human and they had families. Let’s respect that.

Second: I happened to catch the BET Awards Last night (True Blood was on the bedroom TV) and my first question:  WHAT is UP with this new fashion trend?

“let me wear my jeans 2 sizes too small THEN wear them below my butt so everyone can see my boxers… ”

(pause)

I’m sorry, but I like having my jeans at my waist… but maybe that’s just me.

Also, why is it when artists sing LIVE they seem to have problems? Lead singer Pleasure P sounded HORRIBLE…

I had to fight with a thunderstorm last night so I ended up losing my reception for a good portion of the night. When I finally got my reception back, I didn’t care anymore and just decided to see the replay later on this week. Actually, I did manage to catch the Jamie Foxx/ Ne-Yo performance of “I’ll Be There” that I felt like was the best tribute of the evening

Last Thursday was the Bowling for Diabetes event. I must say, I had fun; I didn’t quite get that 100 that I was aiming for, but two scores of 93 is good enough for me. I think i’m going to need my own shoes and ball…

We ended up playing boys vs. girls the first game was a tie: 495-495.

The 2nd game, the boys pulled away with the victory (or the girls choked)

Naturally a rematch WILL be held at a later date and time.

I’m in the process of finishing my review for a game that I got from Platform Nation (for free) I’ll let you know when it’s ready to go.

That’s about it for now. I want to Thank everyone for your support, and remind you to love your family, and friends. If you have friends you lost touch with for petty stuff, get back in contact with them, that phone call, text, facebook message, tweet could be a ray of sunshine during a cloudy time for them.


Monday 31 *updated*

June 15, 2009

Shout out to my friend Cedric Nabe for running the 100m in 10.28 seconds. Yeah, he pretty much embarrassed the rest of his heat… Here’s hoping he keeps doing big things on the Track. Maybe he can be the next Seminole to run in the Olympics.

I really need to start posting more often. I blame it on summer (the season, not the friend)

Here’s what I spoke about since last you know what? The only thing I spoke about was the new “facebook vanity url” thing they have which is going to make it easier for stalkers to find you.

The new season of True Blood started last night. I thought about giving it it’s own post, but I would much rather put it here. The new season picked up right where the last one left off, answered a couple questions from the ending of Season 1, all while opening new questions. I have a feeeling this is going to be a great season. Stay tuned. I thought about giving a synopsis of last night, but I know there are people who didn’t get to see it last night; so no spoilers from me.

I wrote another review for Platform Nation. This time it was for their new puzzle game known as “Trash Panic“, check it out and as always leave a comment if you can. don’t be afraid to ask questions, that’s the only way I can get better.

There are no wedding updates this week. Everything is still moving according to plan though. This list isn’t getting any easier… I plan to have my list “ready” before July.

I decided to try something new for the summer; I’m going to start a series of blogs called “Places I should be”  What I need from you the reader is to send me a couple pictures and 50 words on why I should be where you are (provided you aren’t where I am) and what’s so great about that place. If you happen to be in the same place I am, feel free to use your hometown (unless it’s where we are now, then use somewhere you’ve been that you really enjoyed)  As always, send it to my email: dtownsend23blog@gmail.com so I can start working on it. I’ve got one so far, and I must say, I like it.
