For some reason I just felt like listening to some Maroon 5.

I've been awake for about 30 hours so far, so I'm chalking it up to sleep deprivation. laugh.gif

Of course, this doesn't explain why I own a Maroon 5 album(two, in fact) rollinglaugh.gif

Nothing wrong with liking them. Khajiit will concede that some of their songs are funky and catchy, just not this one's particular cup o'tea.


Heh, I had to upgrade from a cup to a cauldron over a decade ago, to accommodate my eclectic taste. laugh.gif

My cd collection is all over the place blink.gif

Khajiit's tastes in music are a bit eclectic too. Stations he frequently listens too on pandora:
Nirvana Radio- basically 90's alternative and grunge with some classic rock thrown in. Artists include Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Jimmy Hendrix, Rolling Stones, The Offspring, and others.

Irish Pub Rock Radio- some Irish folk songs mixed with Irish rock. Artists include Flogging Molly, The Young Dubliners, The Pogues, Darby O'Gill (funny stuff!), The Blaggards, others.

Nightwish Radio- Epic, mostly dark, rock and metal. Artists include Nightwish, Dragonforce, Rhapsody of Fire, Camelot, and perhaps lesser known like Dark Moor and Edenbridge. This station also plays some more traditional music like instrumentals played on violins and what not, and also some odd stuff like The Birthday Massacre.

Early Jazz Radio- exactly what it says. Artists like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Billy Holliday, and others. It also throws in some c.1920's New Orleans jazz occasionally, and Khajiit has heard the likes of Sinatra on there. Fallout3 basically got me listening to this type of music.

Screamin' Jay Hawkins Radio- weird blues mostly. Artists include Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Little Richard, and others.

On Khajiit's apple music thing he has all kinds of stuff from Spanish guitar, a few electronica selections, symphonic metal, folk metal, classical, mariachi (one selection: a mariachi version of Gerudo Valley from LoZ:OoT that this one grouped with the Spanish guitar stuff), and more that Khajiit doesn't really know how to categorize.

Bought this at a pawn shop the other day: Luke's Lightsaber.

The box it was in was a disaster so I tossed it but the saber itself looks like it's in pretty good condition, to bad I don't have any batteries to test it. Still nice though.

Might be some change of plans on getting my rifle out of layaway the 1st. My dad and manage to find another place to move to and considering I REALLY hate the hellhole I'm living in now and the new place looks better, it's going to take a lot of money to not only take the place off the market but also pay the first month's rent. The new place is a rent to own. In all it'll be totally worth it.

Yeah, definitely man. New digs would definitely take priority over another gun (hell, you already have an AK, a .45, and who knows what else) in Khajiit's mind.

Lol, no it's based on how much you work. Khajiit could work more and earn more time off, but he already works 40 hours a week!

Why do you hate your current living-place, Reaper?


Mostly to get away from our current landlord plus the neighborhood keeps getting worse every year and I've gotten tired of living here, also the cops don't patrol or answer any calls out where I live. There's also other reasons but the list would go on forever.

Welp, I'm now plunging headfirst into a Sci-Fi binge, which leaves me with something of a problem: Which game to play?

Borderlands 2(played through most of it, but not as all the characters)
C&C3
Fallout: NV(never got around to the DLCs)
Halo Reach(completed, but still enjoyable)
Mass Effect and ME2(completed both, with various outcomes)
or Xcom Enemy Within(see Halo Reach)

Well, these are just my 360 games, as it's my primary gaming platform. I've got the Xbox version of Jedi Academy, but it really suffers when played on the 360, particularly in HD.

As for KotOR, I always preferred TSL(Jedi Sentinels were always my type of Jedi, and they're awesome in TSL). And I'm not even sure how well either KotOR runs on my laptop.

But to be honest, I'm not really feeling Star Wars right now. Which is why I'm not reading through my Star Wars books at the moment(I'd start with the X-Wing series and I, Jedi, hit a few of the highlights, then go straight for Thrawn trilogy, and maybe get around to reading Spectre of the Past and Vision of the Future biggrin.gif )

Until Dawn became free on PSN (limited time) so I got. Its cool cause I originally was going to buy this but never got around to it. I'm watching ProJared's walkthrough for research to point out his missteps for when I play it. Jared did do a decent job but got two people killed still Until Dawn is an amazing looking game.

A fantastic yet massively underrated game. Unfortunately I have to play the Xbox version, as the PC version contains some of the most vicious DRM known to man and won't run on anything later than Windows XP sad.gif

Welp, it looks like my Sci-Fi binge might be forced into something of a timeshare. For weeks I've been getting this mental image kicking around my head, and having failed to create the character in Skyrim, it looks like I'll have to fire up Oblivion again. Because this mental image just has too much presence for me to pass up on.

A Sorcerer. With a claymore. Every attempt I've made at playing a similar character failed in Skyrim because of the equipping system, which completely fails when it comes to two-handed weapons.

Let me see if I can paint you a picture(hopefully using less than a thousand words wink.gif )...

Upon a throne of stone sits a figure; clad in Daedric armour that shimmers darkly with enchantment, and lit from opposite sides by two shades of pale flame. His black, shoulder length hair is swept back; framing his pale, gaunt features as it cascades down to his shoulders, seeming almost to merge into his armour. Beneath furrowed brows a pair of vivid blue eyes pierce the gloom, lit from within by the figure's power. A naked greatsword rests across his, untouched by any mortal hands and carrying echoes of the being who forged it. The figure drums the fingers oh his left hand against the flat of the blade, setting resonant groans echoing around the chamber as the greatsword's power clashes with the nature of the gauntlets. Arcs of lightning crackle around the figure's right hand as his stern gaze sweeps the room, ending abruptly as he makes a decision.

He takes up his sword, standing and sliding the blade into the sheath across his back with a single fluid motion. As he strides towards the atrium he raises his hood, leaving his eyes gleaming in the shadows.

It was time.



'Tis a quick/rough mockup, but has the basics. *shrugs*

I'm way too big a fan of armoured magic users, though the addition of the sword is pretty new.

Ugh---today sucked ass. I had to say good-bye to little Odin Cloud today, since my dad and I are moving to a new home we had to let one of them go we gave little Odin to a family who thankfully had two daughters. The family needed a dog to help them cope with a family tragedy. That was really hard for me to make that kind of sacrifice, I loved that little guy and I hope to the divines that family will take excellent care of him verysad.gif .

Aww man Reaps, that does suck! Khajiit is sorry sad.gif
Hopefully your new home will work out so your sacrifice will not be in vain, and hopefully that family will be good to him. Man that's a bummer verysad.gif

Aww, sorry, Reaper. Sounds like you did a great job finding little OdinCloud a good home and he is young enough I bet he'll bond with those two girls very quickly. Hope the new place works out well.

And Lotor wonders why he losses to Voltron every time.



Edit:

Well I got some good news and some bad news.

Bad News: It seems I gave up a good dog for nothing, sure I made a family happy but that good deed came to bite me in the ass like always, I won't be moving into that new house and its all thanks to the realtor not having all the information and the mortgage company who would rather have the place rot then allow someone to take over the payments. So no I won't be moving and it cost me a really good dog...Yeah as you can imagine I'm REALLY pissed off right now.

Good News: I can still get that new rifle out the fist as planned.

Reaper, I can see why you'd be pissed. That is terrible! I'm really sorry that it fell through - the fact that you already gave up OdinCloud really stings. sad.gif
