Irving Plaza revisited. [May. 17th, 2008|01:52 am]

I failed to mention that last Sunday, I saw another concert at Irving Plaza: Arch Enemy (along with supporting bands Firewind, Divine Heresy, and Dark Tranquility).

It was cool. Show felt a bit short though for some reason; even though it did let out about the same time as the Ministry show from the previous week.

Also, it would've been a little more fun if any of my friends could've come with me.

R.I.P. Ministry (1981 - 2008). [May. 3rd, 2008|01:41 pm]

[Current Music |Ministry - Stigmata (Live 12/12/88)]

Last night (at Irving Plaza), I saw Ministry live, for the first time - something long overdue for me.

Sadly this would also be the last time, as this tour is their farewell tour.

Setlist was pretty good; it encompassed pretty much every album of theirs that I listened to often (although, with it being a farewell tour, I imagined they would've done at least 1 song from every album - would have liked to hear some songs from Filth Pig and Animositinsomnia, too), as well as a couple of covers at the end of the show that were enjoyable.

My only real complaint: no performance of "Stigmata". And, to a slightly lesser extent, "Burning Inside". (I guess maybe I should've been there on Thursday night, or perhaps any other time over the past decade when I could've seen 'em.) :(

Two bands opened up for them: Hemlock and Meshuggah. Hemlock was...alright, I guess. Good warm-up band. Meshuggah was pretty damn good. I've heard of them before, but never actually heard any of their songs. I'm now motivated to look into their material at some point, and definitely wouldn't mind seeing them live again.

And killed him. Or, almost. I believe the other guy behind him dealt the final blow.Collapse )

For those (somehow) not in the know; recall: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leeroy_Jenkins

I bought The Orange Box about two months ago, installed it three days ago, and finally beat Portal an hour ago (thus, finally earning the viewing of the nice ending).

There are "Bonus Maps" to try after that (consisting of "Advanced Chambers" and "Challenge Maps"), but I'm not up for that yet.

Call me a poser for having not played (let alone, finished) Portal and liking this song.

It's cute.

And since people tell me Portal is a great game, I'm sold on getting The Orange Box sometime.

Edit: One with a close-up on the lyrics.

What type of person do you attract?
Your Result: You attract geeks!

Your stunning intellect and love of sci-fi and video games allures the geeks like nothing else. Maybe it is the sparkle in your eye that makes them want to text you, who knows. Geeks make good partners, but tend to be arguementative. If you are a TRUE geek magnet, you will know if that was spelled correctly, and actually care. If it is a bad-boy/bad-girl you are seeking, you are barking up the wrong tree, unless they are just 'bad' behind a PS2 console.

You attract unstable people!
You attract artsy people!
You attract rednecks!
You attract Yuppies!
You attract models!

27. [Jul. 5th, 2007|12:04 am]
ジョナサン ・ シェグリン
[Current Music |Pinhead Gunpowder - 27]

I'm not seventeen,
And going on nowhere fast;
A decade lost in the East Bay fog;
Birthday cards thrown in the trash.
Last years' calendar;
On the wall, collecting dust.
My friends say to tear it down,
But instead I'll leave it up.
And now I'm 27,
Driving to the 7-11.
When I turn 28,
Will I end up losing faith?

Promises decayed,
On expiration dates;
New Years resolutions sold,
To the bums out on the street.
What was it all worth?
And was it worth the while?
Lost and found and ten years down,
And torched it to the ground.
Will I still stand in line,
When I turn 29?
But now I'll take a number,
And it reads 27.
