A new month, a new blog season!

No update yesterday since I managed to busy myself with a nice horror movie marathon with my best friend. First watched Candyman, which was not very impressive for us. Good enough to watch though, and great to make fun of! Phantasm was the next movie, which was rather pathetic. I might be judging it too harshly for its age, but it pulled a lot of bad horror movie clich├ęs. I did respect an interesting connection/twist it threw at the end, but that was about it. For the most part, the movie ended up more sci-fi than horror. Lastly, I saw Dawn of the Dead remake, which was excellent! Nice to know of the references to the movie I seen in shows like South Park. The ending left a little to be desired, but was fitting enough.

As it is a new month, it is time to do some blog cleaning. I basically hid from my follow list people who haven't updated much last month, nor much recently. Some exceptions were made, such as people I have had for awhile and provided incredibly interesting blogs, as well as people who might not have updated much, but stayed in contact with me. If any of said people came back and commented to let me know so, I'd welcome them back of course. No worries, if you are reading this (within the date this was posted anyway), you likely are not apart of the cleaning.

If I was better with imaging, I'd probably revamp the blog a bit too, but alas, I am not. Instead, I'll reflect upon the most popular entries I had in views this month!

For My Fellow Archipelago Remastered Players - I'm a little surprised this was the number one entry I've been having since I started blogging, despite the lack of comments. I suppose it is just because of the (few) people that play the game and search for help on google. Most the hits are from people searching for recipes in the game. Kind of funny since that game on BYOND has been going down a lot, due to the heavy turnover rate of hosts. Ah well.

Guess Who's Back - The post after I returned from vacation. I suppose that mini-vacation with the family wasn't so bad. It was nice to get away from the normal life I have been leading, even though the highlight of it was the casino. It also got me back into wanting to gamble and thus back to playing Neopets more regularly.

... - When I first found out Great-Grandma died. Yeah, that has been in my head for awhile. It's hard to accept since it felt like she would be around forever. Again, I'm not exactly depressed over it, just got me thinking about life a bit more. Also renewed my appreciation for family, which I feel was a bit of a blessing in the end. Only problem I'm having is I feel like I'm losing touch with my cousin, who was my other best friend for the longest time. Now, I feel like much more of an acquaintance, or just a normal cousin to her... though I will admit that has been slowly happening for a long time now, great-grandma's death just made it more apparent.

Sudden Vacation - This was just talking about my feelings on havign to go on a vacation. In retrospect, I feel I was rather immature about it. I was just wanting to have the house to myself for a week since it makes me feel so much more independent. Just a mask over what I actually am; an unemployed son living off mommy and daddy. The job market sure isn't treating me too well (nor my old school for that matter).

Super Smash Brothers Brawl - Heh, this likely was only popular because of the name and how popular the game itself has been. Since this entry, I have gotten another 6 characters through Classic mode on Intense, and another handful through boss battles intense mode. Stickers needed remain at 2. :(

  1. I miss Super Smash. I might just warm up the wii and start a few rounds.

  2. Quite a good summary of what's been going on here, and particularly useful for me since I think I started following you near the end of the month and usually don't have the time to read through backlogs.

  7. Another month, and that much closer to winter. I know it's November because I woke up this morning to my car literally completely covered in frost.

    Makes me happy, I read all of those except for the first one when you first posted them. I hadn't realized I've been following for so long, but I guess it's been about a month and a half, maybe a little more. Yours is still one of my favorites to read.
