The Contino: Ozymandias is one of the pics there, I think
The Contino: And I do not like that guy's face
Jimmy: who is playing Ozymandias anyway

The Contino: Starring NPH, who will be playing ALL ROLES
Jimmy: NPH should play every role in every movie
Jimmy: Haley "almost went nuts" trying to reconcile his understanding of complex human behavior with Rorschach's moral absolutism, stating the character made him wonder if people generally just make excuses for their bad actions.

Current Mood: pissed offpissed off
The text, in full, of my letter to Securom regarding their shitty software and it fucking up my enjoyment of Dawn of War Soulstorm. I have been anticipating this game from the moment they announced it, I have a paid-for copy in my hand, I have installed it, and it won't fucking start.

Punishing the people that pay for things. What a business model. I hope all their coders get herpes of the retina and claw their eyes out in some maddened frenzy and then, and only then, do they suddenly and mystically realize that their whole career is based on being the third biggest cockholster in all of computerdom, rivaled only by AT&T and Comcast.

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you forever. God fucking dammit.

"So, I go out and I buy this game and I try to play it and your software fucks it all to pieces, if you'll pardon my overly-succinct analysis of your product.  I am further endeared by the idea that I actually paid actual money for the actual software, and instead of being able to enjoy it I am instead punished.

So, I'm thinking that you've erroneously detected my RAID array as a virtual drive.  Good job.

Any assistance would be appreciated, as would the summary immolation of your headquarters and business model.

Thanks in advance,
John Contino

P.S. - The analysis log, nicely encrypted to stop me from figuring out the problem myself or make sure no more information than needed is given, is in a self-extracting archive in case you aren't allowed to use WinRAR.  See?

P.P.S. - I realize that some underling has to read all this, but you work for the company which means you haven't burned the place to the ground yet which means you should be ashamed of yourself.

P.P.P.S. - I give it even money that before I get a reply to fix this, I can find a working no-CD patch.  Of course, that means I could have just downloaded it anyway.  Which makes the initial paying of money all the more insulting to my situation.  I feel, as the consumer, that this is worth further contemplation.

Aug. 3rd, 2007 @ 06:02 am Shadowrun, -or- How to Foment Drama Among Dorks
Current Mood: blahblah
So tonight Nick and I had to start shit with our Shadowrun GM, Jake, and while I feel it needed said I'm sitting here now mulling it over in my head and regretting it. Granted, Jake ran us through two days of hoops and then tried to get us killed twice because we didn't do shit the way he wanted us to do it. Matt said he was just below some other 'railroad tycoon' he knew in expecting you to do a campaign on-rails, which made me chuckle.

But at one point, Jake assumed we were all quitting, and Ben remarked to Jessica on his way up and her way down the stairs that on the way home, he expected me to bitch the whole way home about Jake.

Neither of those facts really leaves me with a great taste in my mouth.

Granted, as soon as Jake left Nick and I agreed we had to say what we'd said. Three and change hours running around with zero positive leads and seemingly every action having a heinous and non-trivial, possibly fatal reaction is no way for starting characters to get the hang of things. And Nick brought up that if this didn't improve, we could always start our own game.

But a guy assumed that a bump in the road meant we were bailing, and the guy who currently wears the de facto mantle of my best friend assumes that because I take issue with a playstyle I'm going to spend a twenty minute car trip back moaning about it. I'd like to think I'm more interesting than that. And it's not like Jake's first try with GM'ing didn't go so horribly we had to start a secret game without him.

Fuck it, maybe I don't regret it. But I'm still left with a sour taste from the whole affair. The social aspect of getting together and gaming seems to be way more dramatic when it's pen and paper and chatting instead of pixels and shit-talking.

... like I kinda am right now.

I've come to terms with the fact that in two generations, give or take, I'll be completely forgotten and that there is no afterlife to bask in. It comes with being a realist. However, even after being cool with that, this article sorta threw me for a loop - http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070629-the-universe-will-destroy-the-evidence-of-its-origin.html

In a nutshell, as the universe is expanding and spreading out ad infinitum, we will eventually not be able to see any stars except those in our local galaxy cluster. Light from non-local sources will red-shift into the invisible portions of the spectrum and all matter outside our cosmic locality will be more or less gone. In addition, any evidence related to the spectrum of rays available during the Big Bang will have also lengthened to the undetectable and be masked by the background cosmic radiation.

In short, we will be relegated to only having evidence of other than the galaxy cluster we reside in if we write it down, very detailed, in a very very very safe set of places. In 100 billion years, the time-frame used in the article, it'll be like there wasn't anything else except us, and most of the evidence of the Big Bang will have burned up or spread out, and I can't pin my finger on it but that kinda bums me out.

I think it's because, having decided that my life is more or less devoted to knowing stuff and how cool knowing stuff is, there's a whole bunch of people who will have to take our word on the origins of the universe, provided that word is even around anymore. Truth isn't absolute and forever? Meh.

"[W]e live in a very special time in the evolution of the universe: the time at which we can observationally verify that we live in a very special time in the evolution of the universe!"


Edit: Right after I finished writing this, Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me With Science" came on WinAmp. I'm listening to it now, and it's so appropriate I couldn't help but chuckle. 80's synth will take the bite out of any bad news, I'm sure you'll agree. Not that the lyrics are appropriate, I'm saying... nevermind, it's late, I'm going to bed.

Edit: Dusty's response
Dusty: hmm, i was actually at a BW3's when this conversation took place, and it was within the home of magnificent sauces that the great Moon Unit, Texas Planet spake unto me. The Moon Lord sayeth 'You damn best better get Blazin' Sause on those wings, don't be some cock-in-mouth Mild Sauce faggot. Wheeehooooo!"

So, today I went and got the warrant for my arrest removed after paying an old fine. I am jubilant that I am no longer the allegorical scurrying cockroach under the harsh gaze of The Man. It was a goddam Event, capital E, meandering slowly through the Franklin County Courthouse just trying to find someone to take my damn money. As it turned out, some girl I went to high school with, couldn't be bothered to remember her name, was the one who, ahem, serviced my needs.


Or not, the girlfriend was with me. It wouldn't be seemly. Anyway.

Before that, there was a trip to Best Buy for what has to be another shock to my system, the purchasing of a cellphone. I'm not at home enough to take calls there and routing them to Jessica's work cell didn't seem like a great idea, so now I have my very own number that I can be reached at. I'm sure this will be completely wasted by the fact that I am not a phone person, have never been a phone person, and don't talk much on the phone, but the utility of having one in this day and age is hard to deny. (Especially if you're going to be putting in a bunch of applications soon... oi vey)

1 dash 614 dash 301 dash 0653 will make my tiny phone ring, should any of you be inclined.

For those of you that aren't in my immediate circle of confidants and communicants, I will give you one last tidbit of shock and awe: the Hallowed Trust Fund went kaput recently. I'm letting a friend use my room in the Campus apartment so that he does not go insane cohabiting with his girlfriend. Blessedly, he pays rent there so that I don't have to, which is a good thing to do when you don't have a job and are parceling out your last scraps of money as miserly as you can.

But where, you ask, are you then living? Ha, yeah. I moved in with my girlfriend, or as I prefer to call it, I am staying with her so that I might move back to Campus at a later date. At the soonest, after the summer so as to escape this cursed heat, but I'm not exactly in any rush. She's a nice girl, for those of you that haven't met her.

I don't know why I'm holding a dialogue with this journal, I'm convinced nobody still reads this damn thing. Whatever.

I'm gonna go try and make sense of this goddam phone, one of them Razr thingamabobs (ha ha, feigning technological ignorance), and then head down to campus for a night of drunkeness and debauchery, or playing Wii, or whatever. You're not my real dad.

I'm glad we had this chat, Journal, you are my bestest most friendest friend ever.

Alright, I'm just typing to type now, fuck this.

Overzealous zookeeper Friedrich Riesfeldt (Paderborn, Germany) fed his constipated elephant Stefan 22 doses of animal laxative and more than a bushel of berries, figs and prunes before the plugged-up pachyderm finally let it fly, and suffocated the keeper under 200 pounds of poop!

Espezito: Investigators say ill-fated Friedrich, 46, was attempting to give the ailing elephant an olive oil enema when the relieved beast unloaded on him. "The sheer force of the elephant's unexpected defecation knocked Mr. Riesfeldt to the ground, where he struck his head on a rock and lay unconscious as the elephant continued to evacuate his bowels on top of him" said flabbergasted Paderborn police detective Erik Dern. "With no one there to help him, he lay under all that dung for at least an hour before a watchman came along, and during that time he suffocated."

Seriously. All my fucking serious updates come in pairs, and it's been this way for months. What the fuck.


I had a job interview recently. It went well, except I've been out of work long enough to give a hiring manager pause. So when the second interview for the credit union on Kinnear comes up, I've got THAT preceding me if I even get picked for an interview. Oh well. Lets here it for cute HR lady being on your side. Corporate personnel can be very helpful if you woo them and keep 'em buttered, believe me. I saw that shit all the time at the BBY. Everybody had a pet Corporate contact, sometimes they would duel for these line-level people in stores. Good times, good times.

What else? Oh right. Still bored off my ass. BUT! But, but, the ever-unholy but, I finally kicked my Warcraft phase. I still play, but it's with RL duders and we tear shit up. No raiding, no PVP grinding, just dicking around with buddies. We'll just make this the gaming paragraph and say I'm also playing a lot of FFXII when I can pull myself away from the computer (heh), and it's fucking amazing. I'm so 110% stoked they knocked another Final Fantasy game out of the park. There are some that would argue they haven't done it since the SNES, so, hey. Chill out, it's great. I'm going very slowly in it, though, because I'm powering up my dudes instead of just progressing the story. You can take the guy out of WoW, but can you ever take the WoW out of the guy? lol

So. See below for girl stuff, but know that for the first time in a long time I'm not contemplating throwing in the towel and going gay. Not that I ever would, but you can only take so much before you just kneel, beg for mercy and start putting on the gimp suit.

Oh wait. What? Nevermind. Moving on.

I haven't gotten the trust dispersement yet. I did some basic mental math and came back with an estimated figure of $1,000-$3,000 for the half of the trust fund I'll be getting. It's buying a 360 and getting me as far out of debt as I can manage. While we're talking about money, Ben had an unexpected windfall for Christmas in the form of a check for the first part of his inheritance. I'll leave it to him to say more if he wants, but he's buying a Wii and Mikey said he's (eventually) getting a PS3. So. Once again, hanging out with me is an experience in conversation-destroying technology. Surprise surprise. Heh.

That's not actually true. I'm getting back with some people I haven't hung out with in awhile, trying to shake off the social dust of months of Warcrafting. It's refreshing, but I've still got a long way to go and not having a job to have spending cash, I can't do much more than hang out, which puts a damper on things. Not having a car also puts a damper on things. Really, I'm just a furnace trying to burn through my own wet blankets, heh. Which is pretty cool, when you think about it. Or it is when I think about it. Fuck off, whatever.

I've been hanging out with the Metal Neighbors every day though. Those guys fucking rule. Laser is one of the duders I play WoW with now, basically him and Ben and a couple others (JAIMEE, YOU LAZY WENCH, I'M LOOKING AT YOU), but they also come over and smoke up and watch hilarious shit. Jessica thinks Laser is especially hilarious. So thumbs up right there.


It was recently Christmas. You may have noticed. I went home and had a meh Christmas with the family. I took an ass-ton of flak about not having a job from literally everyone there EXCEPT my 13-year old sister. I got some movies, some pretty comfy shirts, and some gag stuff. I didn't get the shoes I asked for, which is tragic because I actually need new shoes. Godammit. Whatever.

So, we're at dinner and my sister has her Jewish friend there, and my mom suddenly asks if she enjoyed all twelve (12) days of Hannukah. I'll let that one soak in before moving on.

Done laughing? Good. My mom also sent a picture of my sister and her friend Emily, and my mother captioned it, "Christina and her significant other". Way to go, mom. Way to out straight members of the family who aren't even gay to Uncle Bill. Brav-o. It's amazing what alcohol and religion can do to your ability to reason.

Uhh, other than that it was a decent Christmas. Came back and hung out with the neighbors, got lots of leftovers, all in all a decent holiday.

John's Holiday Timeline
Thanksgiving - Sucked. It was my brother and I eating because my sister had talked shit about me and left and my mom had left the table when my sister talked shit before I showed up. Amazing.
Dad's Birthday - Ignored
Jessica's Birthday - What's this, a new addition to the list?
Gina's Birthday - Ignored (Yes, hon, you have every right to hate me, but you won't because you're the bigger person)
Mom's Birthday - Ha, I couldn't call her because the phone was on the fritz. I'm sure she was thrilled. Apparently she had a mini-breakdown. NO WAI
My Birthday - Called Mom, she almost forgot it was my birthday. Awesome start. Fun gifts, amazing time out with Jessica, fun time after with Metal Neighbors. w00tsauce. I'm 24. Slightly less w00tsauce, heh.
Powder's Birthday - Ha, I only put this on the list so I can point out that he hangs out with Shane and doesn't talk to me anymore. Blah.
CHRISTMAS DAY - Full of meh, but that's better than full of suck.
NEW YEARS - Heh, here's hoping I'm boozed up and surrounded by decent people. (I would settle for one exceptional person, heh)

Ha, I just checked my calendar. Let's just say I missed a couple birthdays in December that make me chuckle to myself knowingly. Man oh man.

Alright, well, fuck it. I'm declaring this trainwreck-in-motion officially at rest. Move along, nothing else to see here.

So. Heh. Uhh... I'm sleepy as shit, but I'm awake now and I have this damn LJ to remember things, and I think I'll want to remember this.

Jessica just spent the night. That woman is more amazing than I had imagined. Ha, I could kiss her for hours... again. We ended up watching half of Masters of the Universe, one of my Christmas gifts, before heading to bed early because she's gotta leave here retardo-early to get home and get ready for work.

Ha, she's the only person that bugs me to update this anymore. I wouldn't be surprised if she was one of a small handful that also was the last to still read this thing. It's as I always say, posterity be damned. Heh.

Edit: So it seems I never made a post about the story with this girl I'm sweet on. I ended up meeting her RIGHT before she got out of this long long relationship, so when we hit it off she felt guilty about it being too soon. I was a sad panda, but, I mean, if you care you're obviously going to make the space the person needs. I don't remember how long its been, but we started hanging out again right before she left for Christmas break. Heh. Talk about rough timing.

Anyway, there's the basics. If you give a shit, you probably already talked to me about it, and if not, well, now you're just that much less ignorant.


Edit 2: This is one of my top-five favorite songs, and now hearing it just makes me grin and picture her face. That is all. You now return to your regularly scheduled drivel.

The Contino: You: "ok"
The Contino: Repeat.
Jenny: oh, gee you're soo funny
Jenny: but what else can i respond with
The Contino: Ha, I don't know. Thoughts? Feelings? A stern rebuke? A comeback? The weather? lol
Jenny: hey, i asked you how you've been
Jenny: you never hold a conversation you just talk
The Contino: I do both.
Jenny: ok
[Conversational pause here while I distract myself with tasks that don't continue to drop my IQ]
Jenny: well i guess not anymore
The Contino: lol
The Contino: "ok" doesn't give me much to work with. I've only got so much random material, rofl
Jenny: well you've never made a statement that i can reply to and you've never asked me question
Jenny: so when you do i will too
Jenny: what does rofl mean?
The Contino: Ha, are you serious? How have you spent time on the internet and never encountered 'rofl'?
Jenny: ?
Jenny: im still lost
The Contino: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=rofl
Jenny: oh ok

The Contino: Ha, yeah.
The Contino: Urban Dictionary is pretty great.
Jenny: yeah
The Contino: For instance... http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=roflcopter
Jenny: you are a geek
Jenny: :-P
The Contino: Why? Because I know lots of words?
The Contino: Are you French because you know what a baguette is?
Jenny: oh, ha ha



Jenny: ok
Jenny: i gotta go
Jenny: food time


The art of conversation is dead, and I lie broken, next to it, utterly defeated.

P.S. - No, not that Jenny, never that Jenny. Another one. Who is also not the brightest. Obviously. But at least she didn't get run over by God twice.

With my current sleep-schedule fucked up for reasons I'll keep to myself for the time being, this song playing randomly at 4am seems oddly appropriate. Plus, like Jimmy said, it's a hilarious album including but not limited to tracks such as... so looking at the tracklist the only one that's funny is 'Slam John Against A Brick Wall', but trust me, it's good stuff.

I'm rambling, I'm out.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.
