Mmmm… (a nice steaming hot cup of coffee)++.

There were two supporting bands with Opeth last night…Alchemist was on the tour with them, and there was a different local band in each city. Alchemist were pretty good, I’ll have to investigate further (hadn’t heard any of their stuff before), but the local band, Flesh Mechanic…holy shit. They /sucked/. Horribly. The guitars and drums were basically played as fast as possible, which resulted in them sounding like pure noise (no comments about any metal being pure noise here, thanks ;)) and the vocalist sucked too. Bleh. Fortunately they weren’t on for very long.

OPETH PLUS FUCKING PLUS

Just got back from the Opeth concert at the Metro Theatre in the city. OMG. πŸ˜€ They fucking rock. And my hearing is somewhat wonky, heh. They said this was probably one of the best audiences they’d had, and that they’ll have to tell all the other Swedish metal bands to come over here. πŸ˜€

Oh yes, and there was the E2 meet as well. πŸ˜‰ That was pretty cool.

I bought Metroid Prime on Thursday. πŸ˜€ It’s damn cool. Kinda struggling with the controls, though…it’s not set up like your standard first-person shooter.

On Friday night we went to the pub…they had a foam party in the beer garden. I wasn’t planning on going in, but I got dragged in. Drenched + 12-degree weather = recipe for a nasty cold. πŸ™ Last night we went to the pub again, but were only there a couple of hours…everyone was really tired.

Daaamn, system-linked Halo and MechAssault is awesome. πŸ˜€ We definitely need to get some more friends to get Xboxes, so we can have more controllers and more players. πŸ˜€

I went on one of my mad complete-room-cleaning sprees this evening, and thus I’ve taken some pics and added the Room page to my site. πŸ™‚

Geekiness++

Heh, we’ve got a repeat of last week now…movies last night, video games and drinking tonight. πŸ˜‰ We saw Cradle 2 The Grave. The plot isn’t especially deep, but it’s just a bit of mindless action. (Oh, and I think I’m going to scream if I see another movie with SMS-isms in the title. Take the Fast And The Furious sequel, for example: “2 Fast 2 Furious”. AAAARRGHHHH! *stab stab die hate kill*).

Going to try hooking our two Xboxen up tonight…and the friend who’s house I’m going to has two widescreen TVs for us to use. :)~

Woo! I ventured out onto the main road today. πŸ˜€ It’s quite easy, heh. Now I’ll be able to drive myself to and from work, and rack up the hours really fast.

I also gave my car a wash and polish. It looks /so/ much better now. The tyres are a bit crummy looking (they’re re-treads), and the hubcaps and rims are generally atrocious, although I cleaned them up as best I could. I’m going to put mags on it eventually, though, so I don’t need to worry too much about it. I’ll take some pics tomorrow.

Going over to a friend’s place tonight, for a night of drinking and video games. πŸ™‚

We went and saw Daredevil tonight. Mmm, Jennifer Garner.

I just ordered a bunch of CDs from The End Records:

* Angel Dust – Enlighten The Darkness
* Dimmu Borgir – Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia
* Lacuna Coil – Comalies
* Nightwish – Wishmaster
* Poisonblack – Escapexstacy
* Trail Of Tears – Profoundemonuim
* Tristania – Beyond The Veil

Mmm…metally goodness.

The Goddess Death: Dark, morbid, appropriately
represented by the color black and the element
water. Death is reserved, intellectual,
introspective. Rarely does she do anything
requiring a lot of energy or display of emotion
— but when she does, anyone within a few
planes would do well to duck and cover.

w00t. The integration of my LiveJournal with my website is complete. I can now be updating my LJ and website at the same time, rather than leaving my website languishing. πŸ™‚ Oh, and naturally I’ve redesigned my site. πŸ˜‰

My driving’s going quite well. πŸ™‚ Had to fill up for the first time last Thursday…at 105.7 cents/litre, ouch. D: I think I need to time it so my refueling is done on Mondays (Monday seems to be cheapest).

A somewhat delayed entry…

I got massively drunk Saturday last week. 6 Smirnoff Ice Double Blacks (mmm, 7% alcohol) + half a bottle of vodka’s worth of shots. πŸ™‚

No luck on the car front as yet. Both the dealers we went to didn’t have the cars that were advertised (apparently the Corolla is very popular…3 days max, and they’re generally gone).

We went bowling last night. πŸ˜€ Holy crap I suck, heh. Got 3rd in the first game we played, and last in the second. Still, it was quite fun.

And I’ve just tidied my room, so it’s all neat ‘n’ stuff. Cleanliness++. It really improves my mood, having my room like this. πŸ™‚

Oooh! And Opeth are coming out here in April. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ They’re in Sydney on the 13th…I’m so totally there. πŸ˜€

Going looking at cars on Saturday. πŸ™‚

We’ve got a list of 9 good possibilities from the Trading Post, and even better, they’re all in the same general area (mostly Parramatta and the surrounding area).

Dad’s BMW is damn nice! Although the stereo system isn’t actually all that good…I put in one of my Opeth CDs and it was quite muffled sounding. Once I get my car and put a good stereo in there, I’ll be able to say that it’s better than Dad’s! πŸ˜‰

w00t!

I went down to St George and got my loan all approved and worked out and stuff, and now there’s lots of yummy money in my account. πŸ˜€

Now I start looking for cars. I’ve been through the Trading Post and gotten 7 possible candidates so far. Dad said if enough of them are still there next week, we’ll go and have a look at some of ’em. πŸ™‚

D&D Quiz

I Am A: Chaotic Good Elf Ranger Fighter

Alignment:
Chaotic Good characters are independent types with a strong belief in the value of goodness. They have little use for governments and other forces of order, and will generally do their own things, without heed to such groups.

Race:
Elves are the eldest of all races, although they are generally a bit smaller than humans. They are generally well-cultured, artistic, easy-going, and because of their long lives, unconcerned with day-to-day activities that other races frequently concern themselves with. Elves are, effectively, immortal, although they can be killed. After a thousand years or so, they simply pass on to the next plane of existance.

Primary Class:
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.

Secondary Class:
Fighters are the warriors. They use weapons to accomplish their goals. This isn’t to say that they aren’t intelligent, but that they do, in fact, believe that violence is frequently the answer.

Deity:
Solonor Thelandria is the Chaotic Good elven god of archery and the hunt. He is also known as the Keen Eye, the Great Archer, and the Forest Hunter. His followers respect nature, and only hunt when needed, but are quick to defend the forest from intruders. Their favorite weapon is the bow, and they tend to be extremely talented with it. Solonor Thelandria’s symbol is an arrow with green fletchings.

w00t, new LJ pic. πŸ™‚

And with that, there’s very little else happening. We’re going to Bradley’s Head tomorrow for NYE (it’s right on the Harbour…we went there last year, and it rocked. Awesome view of the fireworks).

Oh yes, and Christmas was Good™. Lots of loot. πŸ˜€

I bought a silver tongue barbell on Thursday…it’s shorter than my current one, but it looks so much better than the purple πŸ™‚ (doesn’t blend in with my tongue at all).

I also got Eternal Darkness for the GC…it’s quite cool. πŸ™‚
