This has got to be one of the creepiest fucking ads in existence. The music goes so well with it too.

Whats particularly shocking is that this ad is meant to be serious. Its meant to make people want to eat their Ice Cream. I don't think the management viewed this ad before green lighting it.

Though it is kinda awesome.

Oh yeah, and heres a second ad of theres along the same vibe - Clicky!

Have I ever said how much I love the Steam overlay you can bring up in games? Because, I do. Alot. Whatever genius thought this up should get a raise.

Just noticed that Torchlight 2 is going on pre-order. Seeing as the first one was pretty fun albeit with a dull story, I figure I'm gonna get this one. Especially since they added multiplayer for the new one (!!!). Anyone else planning to get it?

Although I'm definitely going for Diablo 3 first. Bound to be at least 1000 times epic.

On a side note, don't you wish more RPG games employed loot-runners like the pets in Twilight do? What I'd give for a follower that sells off my junk whilst I explore.

So, its been 2502 (ok, so I came in a little late for the 2500 mark) days since I joined TWHL. I join and leave other communities fairly regularly, but I always come back to this one, my port in the storm.

Rock the fuck on people.

P.S I hate it when there aren't any spare Routers or External wireless network adaptors lying around, because then I have to go spend monies.

So, at the urging of a friend, I decided to get back into The Walking Dead and caught up from the mid-season break up to the last episode of the season. I honestly don't know why I thought it'd be a good idea to watch them but I did. And I regret doing so, as its still a pile of shit.

Since writing my complaints on several episodes in one journal posting sounds too much like work to me, I'm just going to underline my misgivings:

1 - Why do they continually insist on trying to keep suicidal people alive? If they want to die then they can't be saved. Stop fucking around with lost causes and do something useful.
2 - Speaking of doing stuff, something actually happens! They found people! They advanced the plot and it only took them just one episode to do it! I'm impressed. Pity they didn't adopt that successful formula for EVERY EPISODE.
3 - Why does Lori thank Shane for all he did for her? She does know he tried to rape her, right?
4 - Why does Lori get at Andrea for doing guard duty rather then domestic work when Dale and (presumably) T-Dog also do guard duty and no domestic work? What, does their being men make them incapable of taking 10-15 minutes to scrub cutlery? Logic, this show doesn't employ it.
5 - Why does Rick abandon Lori in like 5 seconds when Hershel tells him to, but it takes him like 10 years to figure out what to do with Randall?
6 - Whats with all the character inconsistency in the final episode? They say and do stuff completely out of character. Its like the writers wrote the story for the final episode then tried to jam their characters into as best as possible.
7 - Why do the Cattle suddenly exist on the farm?
8 - Why does a walker struggle to get out of mud until a kid throws stuff at him? Does he just go into hulk mode or something? And a ninja too it seems, seeing as it can magically sneak up on Dale in a field. At night time admittingly, but even Dale should've been able to pick up on a walker approacing.
9 - They should just make T-dog wear a shirt that says "Token Black Guy"
10 - How come the walkers are only just now hearing the gunshots at the farm? They've fired like a bajillion shots yet get no walker, then Carl fires one and suddenly every walkers onto them? WHUT?

Please bring Frank Darabont back. He had actual talent.

Hey, do you remember that crazy cult called "Scientology"? Probably now, but heres an interesting article on one of its most well known members, Tom Cruise, and how the cult constantly spied on him.

Class act.

I recently came upon this video whilst stumbling through the darkest recesses of Youtube. One of those times in which you hop from a video on say, dogs, to a video of something really disturbing.

In this case, a "prank" in which a number of students at a pep rally in Rosement highschool are blindfolded and given a kiss from a special someone. Guess who that someone is? Their parents. And these aren't pecks on the cheeks either, go watch the video to see what I mean.

All I can say is: Congratulations, parents! You have successfully traumatised your kids. gg.

Whelp, after a week and some 20-30 attempts (I lost count after 16) I finally brought down Smough and Ornstein on Dark Souls.

Today, I am complete.

So, I finally got round to watching the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead, episode 7.

I think I'm pretty much not going to watch the show anymore. Way too boring, way to predictable. Carl should've blown Shane's Brains out the moment he handed him the gun, and Rick... Blargh. Season 1 had its fault, but it was still enjoyable. Season 2 is a trainwreck by comparison. I've come to hate a fair number of the characters, and the way they gutted their personalities and derailed they're growth in service of some stereotypical bullshit is annoying as hell.

The only good part was the ending, which was a nice little twist. Otherwise, it thoroughly stank.

Watched season 2, episode 5 of The Walking Dead. I have to say, I can't wait till this season is over. From ep. 2 onwards it got way too predictable. Not to mention boring. Exactly how long are the writings going to stay on the farm? No doubt dragging it out till the end of the season. Not to say the seasons been terrible, but it hasn't been particularly good either. Certainly not on par with season 1, in any way.

I picked up my pre-order of Skyrim today on the PS3. Unfortunately, I don't have a HDTV, so there's some problems with resolution (particularly annoying since I can't see anything on the bottom bar, including my health bar) but otherwise I'm having a blast with it.

I am, as always, playing my kahjitt assassin. I'm such a sucker for sneaky bow shots. And now I can add dual dagger backstabs to the list :P
