what the hell is non-contact boxing?!?

non. contact. boxing. I can't even make this shit up. There's posters up all over the office about it. Thing is, I fail to see what actually occurs at one of these sessions. The point of boxing is to punch the hell out of the other guy while he does the same to you and try to be the last one of you standing. When you take the contact out of it, what the hell actually happens? It kind of reminds me of playing guns as a kid.

"Oh, I totally knocked you out." "nuh-uh!" "Did so! that uppercut totally knocked you out!" "no way. My, um, jaw... is made of titanium alloy. In fact, you broke your hand. My next punch totally knocked YOU out."

Those sons o' bitches.

My favorite currently-running anime has just been licensed as of today. What does that mean? No more death note for me >.<

I'm not happy. Sure, some asshat who took a japanese class in highschool who uses shitty quality raws might pick it up anyway, but Live-eviL are the best subbers out there, and now that Death Note's been licensed they dropped it like it was nothing.

The good news, I suppose, is that it was Viz that licensed it and not shitty shitty Tokyopoop... er... pop. Viz did me proud with Ranma, I can't imagine they'd half-ass this gem. It just means that I hit a real interesting part, and I'll have to wait for it to come out on DVD and pay way too much for it :(

Richard Jeni is a funny guy.

I was bored tonight, so I decided to surf over to youtube and watch some comedy shorts. After I had my fill of Russel Peters (also a very funny guy), I remembered that I enjoyed watching Richard Jeni's standup (if you don't know who Richard Jeni is, try to remember Jim Carey's best friend in the Mask. That's him).

At any rate, the first clip I watched he did his card bit. I love that bit. It starts off with him making fun of what liars people are when they're on a first date, and he says that people should just get write all their baggage and problems on cards and take turns slapping em on the table:

Bob: "Hi, I'm Bob, and I'm a scorpio." *slap*
Sally: "Hello, I'm Sally, and I'm a psycho." *slap*
B: "okay. My father locked me in the closet when I was five years old." *slap*
S: "My dad came out of the closet when I was seven years old." *slap*
B: "I'm self-centered and obsessed with my appearance." *slap*
S: "I am from Los Angeles also." *slap*
B: "all right, it's my turn. I can't have an orgasm unless I'm on top." *slap*
S: "I can't have an orgasm unless I'm on CRACK." *slap*
B: "I have an imaginary friend named Bosco." *slap*
S: "YOU KNOW BOSCO?!?!?" *slap*
B: "I'm neurotic. I need to see other people." *slap*
S: "I'm schizophrenic. I AM OTHER PEOPLE." *slap*

College Saga...

yeah. It's really retarded, but the first episode made me laugh. I'll check out the other 3 after work. The whole thing is about 45 mins long, but broken up into 10 min episodes.

smartass...

and now, a monkey with a deathwish: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8811551493740102634

I just... want... my wii.

I hate this other people buying my stuff crap.

A little background: Kim and I decided that the new Nintendo system would make a great gift to each other for Christmas. I head to EB to preorder one, and the clerk says she won't sell me a preorder, but to "come back on launch day. we'll have some extras." Of course, she refused to sell me one of their extras right there and then. Of course, Wiis were sold out all over town by 930 on launch day (I saw many people walking around with multiple units because nobody limited the sales to one per person). EB in Langford, the slowest store in town, still has a line up of 20-30 people everyday in the hopes that a shipment comes in. If a store gets a shipment, they're gone just as fast as they put em on the shelves.

My Dad decided that he wanted to buy Kim and I a Wii for Christmas.... when he can find one. I got a Wii game for my birthday (which is currently making a so-so paperweight).

The other day, I noticed someone walking out of futile shop with a new wii screaming to his buddy "I got me a wii muthafucka!"... it was all I could do not to mug the smug bastard. I felt a little better when his mom smacked him (he was about 9), but not much. I think my only hope of finding one in the near future (the wii shortage has been projected to last into march, PS3's past June HAHAHAHA) will be for them to show up in costco when my stepmother happens to be in there shopping.

Edit - seriously, shit like this is why good boys like me can't get a wii: http://cgi.ebay.ca/NINTENDO-WII-SYSTEM-5-GAMES-WII-SPORTS-BUY-IT-NOW_W0QQitemZ230074245853QQihZ013QQcategoryZ62054QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#ebayphotohosting

In related news, this video I found amusing: http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1712492 It's just a stupid video someone made of rejected wii games. Enjoy.

Anime...

So I've reverted back to my anime junkie self. I watched all of Eureka SeveN in 2 days (50 episodes total). Damn it was good. Didn't get shit done though, and it's crunch time.

Not that many people read this garbage, but if you have a suggestion for some anime that you think I might like, let me know. I'm hoping to snag Bleach soon, but with Eureka SeveN, Initial D, Samurai 7 and Fullmetal Alchemist done, I need... NEED something else. I've heard good things about Inu Yasha, but I'll have to find somewhere to watch some episodes.
