Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2

Whatsup everyone!

Long time no see huh, I have been ridiculously busy lately and practically sleep every 2-3 days now since things got a little hectic. So few updates before my main point. I have finally got myself a job, and a good one at that. I now officially work for The Cheesecake Factory over here as a Host. For those that do not know, it isn't a literal factory (yes people have asked me if there is such thing as a factory that produces cheesecakes around here) it is a very nice restaurant that pays good. Since I am a full time worker, I am going to be insanely busy but I will make bank in no time. Alright now on to the main point.

Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 has been officially announced for all that have not heard yet. The release is June 2012 over in Japan and both versions will release simultaneously. Myself and many others were anxious for Masuda's big announcement on the episode of Pokemon Smash that aired earlier today and after watching 30 min of whatever it was that we were watching, Masuda finally appeared. He then revealed the new game and the 2 new forms of the pokemon Kyurem. Now this is a first in Pokemon history being the first direct sequel to one of the main series of Pokemon games. For example, Red/Blue happened 3 years before Gold/Silver took place in the Pokemon timeline. This is the first time that a game is directly a sequel of another and takes place within the same region and all that fun stuff. Personally, I am really excited about this and will try to update everyone here with more news as things are released and confirmed. I will leave some stuff below, have a great weekend everyone!


I Just Wanna Know Your Name

Whatsup everyone,

Today's gonna be a short update with some random videos and such that I found interesting. Before that all though, I have had no luck with fixing my laptop so all my youtube stuff is on hold for now. Now, for the videos that I was looking at lately.

Jay Park released his new album (New Breed) on itunes and it has topped the R&B/Soul Charts on itunes beating everything else within a few hours of its release. Jay uploaded 2 music videos to his channel on youtube promoting the album. Know Your Name came out with two music videos, one for the original version and one for the acoustic version. I really liked both of the versions of the songs but the Acoustic version almost seems like a completely different song. Regardless of a few words being altered for the music video, both were really good. The original version has a kind of Usher kind of feel to it. Many people were getting a little upset over the black girl in the video and then the other half were all leaving stupid comments like "OMG IM SO PROUD TO BE BLACK XDDDDDD" "This is so amazing that theres a black girl in this :DDDD." Personally, It's cool that he is embracing the whole diversity thing but when the video is filled with only Koreans and then you throw in one and only one non Korean, they are going to stand out really badly. It also doesn't help that she is considered ugly and kind of fat and then dances like usual slutty women in rap music videos. They also seem to have taken great care to avoid focusing on the girl's face and tried to avoid focusing on her in general as if they knew she was just unappealing. Usually for music videos like this everyone is Asian to keep it all matching and avoid these kind of issues. Here is the video.

The Acoustic version has him in a cafe using a TakeHD phone, which was recently released in Korea. The TakeHD phone is capable of HD video and picture capturing along with being able to play games in HD format on the phone itself. Also it supports USB products like keyboards laptops and more. Also Jay seems to have a thing for stalking girls in cafes apparently, seeing as this is his second music video showing him taking pictures of a girl in a cafe without her knowing.

To end today's post here is a ridiculous and supposedly educational video that was probably used to train new hires about dealing with sexual harassment in the workplace. I cannot imagine having to watch this and not laugh myself into tears. Have a great day everyone!


Personal Views

Whatsup everyone,

Today I felt like talking about some personal beliefs and thoughts on life. Just kind of had a random thought about some things and the way I am and well I figured why not share it with everyone.

Responsibility. My views on being responsible are pretty high up there, probably because of the way I was raised. I will NEVER break a promise, I always hold true to my word no matter what happens. My father taught me that a man is only as good as his word, and I stuck to that one pretty well. If you hear the words "I promise" come out of my mouth than you know I will not let you down. When it comes to smaller things like events and such that I need to attend or help plan, I make sure that I get it all done ASAP and make sure everything is planned out properly and I make sure to try to either be on time or a little early.

Trust. When it comes to trust, I am very trustworthy yet I am very picky about who I trust. As they always say, trust takes years to build but can be lost in a minute. I have a VERY hard time trusting others yet others trust me quite easily. This probably comes from my honesty and understanding of others along with how virtuous people say I am. I'll be honest there is only about 4 people I can truly trust and even then it isn't 100% trust, not because I can't trust them completely but people tend to be forgetful and cause little issues here and there.

Courage. For the most part I am Courage Wolf in human form. The only thing I am not very courageous about is battling large insects...outside of that the amount of things I have done regarding being brave or courageous and the heroic acts (as some friends call them) have given me quite a reputation for being a very brave person. I have had friends that are too cowardly to even make a phone call to a store or ask someone for information. As pathetic as that is, I just man up and hope they could follow my example and stop being a little bitch about these things. I honestly do not understand how some people can be so nervous or shy to do simple things like that. Then again this is coming from a man who has done quite a lot for himself and others that people would be too embarrassed to do. For example, a friend of mine who, despite being married, was too embarrassed to buy condoms and would ask me to buy them for him. Once his wife found out she couldn't believe how stupid the whole situation was. Still to this day he is pretty embarrassed to buy them himself.

 Well, I think I will do a part 2 to this one on Tuesday if you guys liked it. What are your personal views on these aspects of life?


Crazy Questions A Restaurant Asked

Whatsup everyone,

So I forgot to update the blog yesterday, partially because I was out most of the day and partially because I wasn't sure what to post. Anyway, I was applying for a few jobs online and one restaurant had me fill out the application and then answer a few questions about myself. Now this is a pretty nice restaurant that I am applying for and personally was not expecting the kinds of things I would have to answer. First it started off with a 10 min timed logic test dealing with patterns of numbers, word problems, definitions etc. Kind of weird but after that it got even stranger. Now the screen was telling me to answer the following questions with Strongly Disagree to Strongly Agree. The first 2 pages were pretty normal stuff and then page 3 had some weird questions. "When you look around, do you have little to no hope for mankind?" "Is it acceptable to laugh at other co workers failures?" There were a lot more but I cannot remember them all right now.

I am considering going back to how I originally did my blog posts with the inspirational speeches and stuff since I miss doing those. I hope you all will like them! Also random song for today that I came across.


Laptop Trouble and Warrior

Whatsup everyone,

This is going to be a bit of a short update since I am a little busy today. So long story short my netbook that had all the youtube related stuff on it came across the same error my desktop had. I need to reinstall windows onto it otherwise it just shuts off at the login screen. Unfortunately that means I cannot post my MW3 gameplay where I was discussing some things about ACTA. It also means that my Pokemon Let's Play video series is on hold until further notice.

In other news, this new Korean group debut with an explosive performance in their music video called Warrior. The group's name is B.A.P. which stands for Best Absolute Perfect, however I keep wanting to say Blonde Asian People since the entire group decided to dye their hair blonde for some reason. The way Bang Yong Guk yells warrior during the chorus is like a battle cry of epic proportions and this song has easily become the perfect workout song for me. Well have a good weekend everyone and I shall leave you guys with the music video.

Whatsup everyone,

So my adventures in Pokemon were going well and recording the session to upload was going fine until my computer decided to freeze up for about 3 minutes. Once I got it to run normally again the video file became corrupted and now I have to start over from the beginning and start recording again. This is going to take some time.

In other news, I had gotten my ears pierced last week and eventually taken them out for my own reasons and noticed one ear was a little red and swollen. So I did my best to keep it clean everyday then finally went to a doctor to get it checked out. So after being told I was completely fine came the worse part, paying the bill. Now I do not have insurance and I figured getting my ear looked at and told I am fine wouldn't be that bad. Ended up paying $100 just to get looked at and told that I am completely fine. What a waste.

Well, I shall continue trying to get the Pokemon Let's Play up and running in the mean time I have some MW3 videos saved on my computer that I may upload to my channel and commentate. Until then have a good weekend everyone!


Update + Asian Kid Mobbed

Whatsup everyone,

I am sure most if not all of you so far have seen the video of the asian man getting mobbed by 7 students from the same school. I honestly have a hard time containing my sheer rage and hatred whenever I hear about these things and watch them. Probably because as a kid, I was bullied a bit and roughed up from time to time. At one point I too was mobbed by maybe 9-10 other guys that were around my age (I think I was around 14.) However, by the time that event rolled around I was already well trained through martial arts and was able to defend myself and suffer minor injuries, but that is a different story that I would rather not brag about my victory...mostly because I enjoyed it a little too much for a kid and some of the assailants were hospitalized for quite a long time and I was even in a bit of trouble for excessive force. Anyway, I remember how scared I was at first and how angry I was after it all ended. Not a memory I want to ever relive. I hope that all of the people involved in this including the girl that video taped it all and even giggled when they slammed the poor kid into the ground ends up in jail for a while. Here is the video, DO NOT WATCH IT IF YOU CANNOT HANDLE IT.

Anyway back to a more calmer update. Seems like everyone would be interested in seeing a Let's Play of Pokemon Emerald or Leaf Green. So I am going to do just that, however I am considering adding a twist to it and doing a Nuzlocke run. For those who do not know what that is, basically you add in some rules to the game to make it a little more challenging. Here is what I am planning to do.

  1. Any Pokemon that faints is considered dead, and must be released.
  2. The player may only catch the first Pokemon encountered in each area, and none else. If the first Pokemon encountered faints or flees, there are no second chances. If it is a duplicate of a Pokemon already caught then the next non duplicate can be caught.
  3. All Pokemon must be nicknamed.
  4. Three Second Chances Are Allowed. (Meaning if a Pokemon faints and I have a revive I can use it but only 3x Revives throughout the entire game)

That is all for today, I shall get working on the Let's Play Series soon. Also not sure why the rules ended up like that. Couldn't figure out how to get rid of the black background.


Let's Play Videos

Whatsup everyone,

Just a real quick question for you all. Would you like to see a Let's Play series on my youtube channel of Pokemon Emerald? I was thinking of playing it again and thought about making a Let's Play series of it. Let me know!


First Time Experience with Clubs

Whatsup everyone,

I just got home from the club with my friends and well, it wasn't all that amazing. The dance floor was pretty small and obviously packed with people. It was ridiculously loud since it was a Friday and the drinks were way expensive. I spent about $16 on myself getting two drinks, my cover was only $5 thanks to my friend getting us on the VIP list. We were there from around 11pm until 1am and the whole time I was just disappointed in the lack of decent looking girls. Not that I went there just to check out girls or hit on any of them, but everywhere I turned was just unattractive, overweight, and scantily clad women. It was not a pretty sight.

Anyway, I never realized how skinny I am until today when my friend took a picture of me before we left for the club. I was pretty amazed by how much weight I visibly lost and was quite proud of myself. I think I said this before but I used to wear a large sized shirt and about a 32-34" waist for pants. Now a days, I am sporting a small sized shirt and 30" waist size pants. I posted the picture on my twitter if anyone is interested to see the picture (click the link it will take you straight to it), it is also one of the few times that I will have a picture of what I look like since I am terrible at taking my own picture and rarely have other people take it.

Well that is all for today, have a great weekend everyone!


Late Posting

Whatsup everyone,

Sorry for posting so late, long story but I will get to that in a minute. Originally, I was going to post on Tuesday as usual but then I was really busy all day so I figured when I got home I would do so. However once home I was so tired I just passed out on my bed. So, I was gonna post up Wednesday but it is now Thursday here. So here are my adventures that delayed this post.

Tuesday began early for me. I woke up way too early for no apparent reason and decided to eat breakfast and play LA Noire for a bit. Once the time came around my friend and I ended up running errands together and eventually making our way to get our hair cuts from our stylist downtown. My haircut and coloring was paid for by my friend as my Christmas present, so I decided to do something interesting. After getting my hair cut and styled we began the coloring process. This is the first time my hair has ever had any color added which I was nervous how it would look. Now it is like an auburn brown color with red overtoned high lights. It is pretty cool in my opinion. Sadly no matter how hard I attempt to take a picture my hair just looks dark brown. Need some ultra lighting or something. So we grabbed lunch at a Japanese restaurant and roamed around the mall for a while before heading home.

Wednesday I woke up dead tired for some reason and just played more LA Noire. Eventually, I went out for a nice 4 mile run and did some exercises on the side for my biceps, triceps, chest and back. My abs are still sore from the last ab workout I did. Ended up going out to eat at another Japanese restaurant with a different friend and roaming around the area for a couple hours.

Now I am sitting here blogging while applying for various jobs. I have realized that I want to be a bartender or a host or something interesting. I'm tired of all the shitty jobs that aren't respectable at all. So, I have decided to go for real jobs and look around banks, hotels and such. Personally, I have always wanted to become a detective or FBI. LA Noire has been about the best application of my deduction skills and detective work I have ever been able to do. Being a very logical and critical thinker, I am very good at this game.

Anyway, the music video styled dance video things that I am doing is in the making. I have also considered putting together and training my own little dance team/crew whatever you call it for fun. Not for competitions or to show off but mainly just for the videos I would like to make. Since my own brother and friends of ours want to learn how to dance and enjoy dancing as it is, I figured why not make our own little group for practice and for the video ideas.

This is literally my number one favorite song and the dance displayed is what I am learning. However his isn't the full dance version just the main music video for you guys to enjoy.


This Year Is Amazing!!!!!!!!

Whatsup everyone,

How is 2012 treating you guys? I have been having pretty good luck lately. I find it kind of strange since for the past few years I have had terrible luck. Everywhere I turn was another life issue beating me down but not this year! In fact so far things have been going pretty well. I am a few days a way from getting my haircut and highlighted and my ears pierced. The day after I am going to a club with my closest friends for the first time ever since none of us have ever gone to a club, and I mean a normal club not a strip club. I would never go to a strip club really.

Anyway, few updates on the youtube channel. So my voice sounds weird due to crappy microphone recordings meaning until the future my voice game videos will all sound weird and I won't be posting any of my song covers or original music to my channel until I have access to a better mic or a recording booth. However, there are still other types of videos that will be uploaded. Just need some friends for those.

I've gotten into the habit of updating my twitter more often as well if anyone wants to follow me.

Well that is about it for today, I'll leave you with a video that I have been watching lately and practicing the dance of for a video.


New Year's Resolutions!!!!!!!!!!

Whatsup everyone,

Hope you all had a good and safe New Years. I personally didn't do anything except go running and play video games since I was broke. What did you guys do for the New Year? Also anyone make a New Years Resolution? Mine are to get in even better shape, find a respectable decent job, and possibly move out of get an apartment of my own. Outside of that mostly just get myself some new clothes since none of my clothing fits me that well anymore.

In my last post I started up my youtube channel and posted my first video. Unfortunately, I forgot to reduce the noise in the commentary and for some reason the video is kind of stretched out for unknown reasons. I may not post anymore MW3 videos until I can fix these issues. The other videos I have in store are in progress but I am still looking for friends of mine that have video cameras and equipment to film the live stuff.

Anyway see you guys Friday!
