I love love love Coke. (Plus, the way I use the word ‘love’ to describe my relationship with ‘it’ has strained a few other relations. Whatever.) I’m loving the “Yes, Wag No” ads, because some of my dreams are like that, running away together with a giant bottle cap. (Why not?) The image above is sort of a tribute to that, and this Penny Arcade strip.
Plus, the GTA/Coke commercial rocks — although I’d do the opposite of what the guy did — I wouldn’t give away Coke!
“In times when history still moved slowly, events were few and far between and easily committed to memory. They formed a commonly accepted backdrop for thrilling scenes of adventure in private life. Nowadays, history moves at a brisk clip. A historical event, though soon forgotten, sparkles the morning after with the dew of novelty. No longer a backdrop, it is now the adventure itself, an adventure enacted before the backdrop of the commonly accepted banality of private life.Since we can no longer assume any single historical event, no matter how recent, to be common knowledge, I must treat events dating back only a few years as if they were a thousand years old.”

Like a sweaty arm around your neck on a hot summer day, all this growth is getting to be a lot stifling year after year.
Been enjoying the recent Penny Arcade podcasts. The strips are hilarious and easily digestible if you have enough ‘gamer-geek’ to stomach it. However, hearing the creative process creates a deeper appreciation for the strips, even more than the blog posts they have for each one. The Broodax one is particularly awesome! Hahaha!

The inventor of this new controller says she made it centered around the idea that gamers neglect their significant others … when they’re playing with their consoles and whatnot.
I recently found this photo on the left in the lost regions of my harddisk. It’s my highschool proficiency exam. Turns out, I would’ve made a really good accountant (minus the math) or something. Am I any of these things right now? Nope…
…and, strange as it may sound, when I was 16, I wanted to be a teacher.
(for the future, when I grow up, I want to be a lobbyist)
Speaking of teachers though, I think one of my cousins is going to be teaching highschool students this coming schoolyear. Which would be crazy — I’m guessing she’d be a reason for a couple of boys to attend school. Haha! (and yes, I did see one of my “reason-to-go-to-school” teacher a couple of weeks back, even if I did cut class a lot — including hers)
Having watched the second season of Robot Chicken, I’d have to say it’s a lot like the first season — a couple of hits; tons of misses.
This bit’s hilarious though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Hl8SL3KhB8
Stuck on Seinfeld reruns (I’m rerunning the DVDs, hah!) — I do hope all this election brouhaha would be done by next week.
If there’s any one new show you should watch, it should be 30 Rock. Gotta love ’em Star Wars references. Plus, Tina Fey!
