Well balls. Not angry as such but decided to play a blu-ray in my replacement PS3 slim tonight (the old glossy brick gave up the ghost a while ago), when it's got a disc running it gives off an electronic buzz that irritates my ears. So yeah, balls.
Is it the super slim? 'Cause mine doesn't seem too loud—or, at least, loud enough to be annoying.
And Facebook is really invaluable for three things: organising events, chatting, and relationship statuses. The minute-to-minute postings of peoples' lives I can live without, but those three features are really useful. The site is just awful, though, Jesus. It must have money poured into it, and yet it consistently gets worse.
On topic: circumstances have scuppered the last two attempts I've made to meet up with a friend, whom I probably won't see again for at least two months. I know he's not avoiding me, but it sure feels like it.
Hmm, I haven't really noticed it, but I do wear headphones. Plus, I've only played The Last of Us, and it doesn't seem to spin the disc that often.
Job hunting is so goddamned stressful. My degree doesn't really do anything for me other than say that I have a degree, and my skillset isn't all that spectacular. Why can't there just be a job that involves reading and talking about games (but not writing because I suck at writing), playing games, and watching porn. I would ROCK at that job.
I'll put this here, even though I'm not angry or anything, just a bit perplexed. This isn't a religious debate post, so I wouldn't bother doing yo thang.
When I tell you I'm Catholic and you're cool with it, why is it that you're suddenly shocked when you find out I believe God created us. Where did you see a disconnection? Why are you so shocked? What on earth did you think "being a catholic meant"? Are people so unaware that there's a large population of earth that are of faith, not just political religious affiliation.

Huh. Seems like a pretty logical connection to draw.When I tell you I'm Catholic and you're cool with it, why is it that you're suddenly shocked when you find out I believe God created us.
Apparently not. It's happened quite a few times. It confuddles me.
And the most common thing that people say is "why". Because is the answer, simply because, I am and will be.
We go to our graves with unanswered question, about so many aspects of life. You not having an explanation that is in accordance with your personal methods of accepting what constitutes as a 'fact', will eat away at you and no one else.
I don't have a problem with believers (no matter what religion), I consider myself agnostic, but thing is: you never seemed like a person to me that shoves the own believes down someone else's throat. So I would spontaneously believe you don't do that in real life either. So... I don't understand why anybody would have a problem with that, unless it's some kinda of hardcore atheist fedora wearing cliché idiot. *shrugs* Sure, when my girlfriend would try and drag my ass to church every sunday or something like that, it would become problematic. But as I said, you never striked me as that kind of person. So yeah, it's cool.But seriously I have to worry that someone I'm dating might do what was done before and dump me just because I of my personal faith.
I don't do that and thanks for noticing. I don't even like to bring up religion in conversations, because it never ends well. I have strong beliefs, beliefs that help me but also confuse me. But I don't have intentions of conversion and I am in no position to be preaching when I have many flaws to work on.

Although I can understand how someone can be turned off by (non)-believe a bit. Like I said, it wouldn't be a bit topic for me, but living after believe, especially when it's lived strongly, is a pretty big thing in the person's life. But if someone isn't even willing to give it a try to see how things work out... man fuck 'em. You said it yourself:
Some people don't deserve me.
I find a lot of 'opposites' to be fascinating and will gladly listen and find things out. So long as they aren't expressed with an air of condescension.

I don't know where else to put this but I saw this today and felt sad/wtf.
Daft Punk Album of the Year Award
I was PUMPED for their new album as I have all of their old stuff and I had it ready to go in my itunes cart. I then had this crazy thought "what if it sucks"...I downloaded the CD and had it deleted off my PC and out of my cart within 30 minutes. I don't get all the praise that they got for their new CD as it is nothing like their old stuff and I wanted to fall asleep when I listed to it.
Guess that's called evolving.it is nothing like their old stuff
I will listen to it next week. I have the aim to listen to one new album every week this year.
I guess they did evolve but even their stuff from Tron was decent and more their style when compared to this. Derezzed was awesome and electronic, Get Lucky was pretty cool too but everything else on the CD was this jazzy slow stuff and not the electronic/house whatever it was that they used to make.
It's like a rapper moving into blues or something, lol.
