Co-codomol FTW... [16 Dec 2006|08:54pm]
Now that I'm back home from uni, things have once again settled down for the christmas holidays. Along with my recent birthday, getting my car MOTed and various other things happening I thought some form of celebration was in order. This "celebration" became a 48-hour miniLAN with Dave (and later, Liz). For a gathering of so few people it was still pretty damn awesome. Probably the greatest/stupidest things were the two completely seperate trips to Belmont Tesco at ridiculous times. LANs are great.

When I look back over the last few months, I'm surprised at how the whole social aspect of university has turned out. Spending most of the time at the weekends either doing society events or hanging out with Dave and his flatmates. The latter event will normally consist of one person playing a game on the playstation for 7 hours whilst the other 2 or 3 people sit there making witty/stupid comments about the game. This has been exceptionally true in the case of the game Xenosaga, an RPG where *EPIC* is probably the best way to describe it (One huge story spread across 3 seperate games. It was originally meant to be longer, i forget exactly how much). The whole thing has led to genuinely funny moments like our first introduction to Bob P. McChauvanist: The designer of all female costumes in games, specifically RPGs. Take the example of the Xenosaga 'Vector' uniform...The female version is exactly the same as the male except it is lower cut, has a stupid jacket that seems to be purely sleeves and doesn't have any trousers whatsoever.

Anyway, The other main social aspect is hanging out with the societies and their events, specifically the Anime and Manga Society. The society is made of both Awesome Win and Epic Fail at the same time for certain aspects. For instance, the commencement of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is an example of the society being great. However, the fact that it took 7 weeks for this to actually happen is a travesty. There's also the matter of the Extreme All-nighter. Apart from the showing of the most excellent Versus, there was a distinct lack of EXTREEEEEEME material and well...I never thought i'd think that an event was Disappointingly Tentacle Free.

scratch that... [23 Nov 2006|08:35pm]
Contrary to my last entry, things have been much more interesting over the last few days. This has been purely due to the wonders of RAG week. Some of you may remember Dave's entry on the awesomeness of this particular week, and I can positively say that it's just as wonderful as he said.

Some of the more amusing things this week have been: One of our lecturers drinking 2 pints of Guinness in a lecture, then explaining how drinking 2 pints of guinness in a lecture is a bad idea; A different lecturer being challenged to a game of Twister by one of the students.

Tomorrow will prove to be a legendary day when, Dave Wood, a lecturer of epic proportion, receives all the pints that have been ordered over the week. On Tuesday, this was equivalent to 3 pints...by tomorrow it will be astronomical. This will happen at 10 o clock in the morning, I dread to think what state he'll be in by Dave's lecture at 4pm.

The weekend is going to be highly unproductive, what with there being a LAN and all. I hope to go to it, but that's only if i don't die hauling my computer to the library...

I knew thee well... [21 Nov 2006|02:00pm]
A mere week after finishing the first, The prospect of Guitar Hero 2 is getting very exciting. After a little research, i had a look at what the final tracklisting is and where the songs are featured. To both my joy and despair, Free Bird is GH2's Bark At the Moon. This means that it will most likely contain all 5 minutes of furious guitar solo/jamming. However, this also means that I'm going to lose the use of my left wrist once again whilst trying to master the game.

Any future console socials here could be interesting, especially with the new coop mode.

Other than that, very little has happened.

I just completed Guitar Hero on Expert.

This pleases me.

well, that was interesting... [14 Nov 2006|05:26pm]
Well, not a whole lot's happened here recently. Last week I got my playstation up here along with Guitar Hero, which has taken up a significant portion of my time. Also causing much procrastination concerning Differential Equations and, to an even greater extent, Analysis (I'll do it at 7...no..8...no...10, yes, 10 o clock.)

Saturday night saw the coming of the AnimeSoc Extreme Allnighter, with promises of violence and debauchery the likes of which have only been encountered in the other Extreme Allnighterrs. While Versus and Visitor Q both delievered the above requirements respectively, the other films shown didn't really feel like they should be there. They were good, but they just weren't EXTREME enough. In the words of the former president of the society, "Where's the hilariously OTT porn to show at 3 in the morning and make everyone laugh?" I never thought I'd believe that tentacles could enhance an evening.

Other than this, days are long, work is hard and food is expensive but man, I'm loving it here. And less than 4 weeks 'til I'm home for Christmas AND my birthday. Which is awesome.

Hmm, I can't get the theme tune to The Adventures of Mikiru Asahina out of my head. BEAM ATTACK!

Gah!... [30 Oct 2006|12:44pm]
So, the weekend was particularly interesting. I think i set a new record for not returning to my flat over a long period of time. Set out in the early hours of saturday morning to join up with some AnimeSoc members for a shopping trip. We must've spent a good 4 or 5 hours looking at stuff, and of course having lunch. I ended up buying the first part of Haibane Renmei (to which my wallet cried out in pain at the knowledge that i'm going to have to spend £60 to complete the collection) and Versus.

Later that evening was the AnimeSoc social. This is when things got rather stupid. I think the trouble first made itself known when myself and one of Dave's Flatmates decided to play the 'I'll have what he's having' game combined with attempting to drink as many different spirits as possible.

Needless to say, things went a little crazy.

Bah, i need to go and finish my work.

I want my own soundtrack... [26 Oct 2006|07:13pm]
There seems to be a significant lack of stuff going on at the moment. My days seem to mostly consist of work, food, listening to power metal, drinking whiskey, watching Dave play Xenosaga and doing stuff with AnimeSoc. The aforementioned work is both stupidly hard and easy at the same time. It's really quite odd.

Saturday should prove interesting with many anime based hi-jinx.

Tomorrow should be nice and easy. 3 lectures and a test equivalent to about 3% of a module. not bad at all.

I'm going to play some DMC3.

I've discovered that Mondays are extremely busy, today was 7 hours of lectures. But at least monday is over and tomorrow means anime goodness.

So Tired...

There's something different... [06 Oct 2006|03:54pm]
[ mood | tired ]

So, the last week has been interesting...After my arrival on Saturday I didn't really do much else. But the next day was spent doing very little, but i went out to one of the free freshers events (after going to the student cinema to watch their free showing of Airplane!, one of the finest films evar). Quite how they got that many people into the union, i don't know. I found somewhere upstairs to sit and hung about for a few hours. During which time I managed to strike up a conversation with a girl and we exchanged numbers, which was highly surprising. We've attempted to meet up again, but through a series of amazing coincidences and mistakes, have been thwarted at every turn.

After checking out the sights of Warwick SU, I headed back and got some sleep before my 10 o clock induction lecture. I have discovered that my timetable is the work of some form of evil bastard, with 4 out of 5 days having a 9 o clock lecture, including wednesday, where it is the *only* lecture. Ah well, at least it's relativity and moderately interesting.

The rest of the week has been rather normal, several lectures, lots of early starts, gross misuse of the local 100mbit resnet connection which will probably get me fined sooner or later, etc etc.

Each of the lecture seems to have each of it's quirks. Without exception, these quirks are in the lecturer themselves. Dave Wood, the differential equations lecturer, has a habit of dispensing chocolates to students who ask intelligent questions in the lecture. However, this has lead to the rather irritating event that every 2-3 minutes someone will ask a stupid question, expecting to get a chocolate. Then there's the guy who teaches vectors and matrices, who is possibly the perfect embodiment of the mad maths lecturer. I've heard that i've still got plenty more crazy things to look forward to.

An interesting problem has arisen in maths lectures this week:

There is a first year maths student who, in the space of 4 days, has made everyone hate him. What has he done? He asks questions in lectures that, while being very articulate and intelligent, are completely and utterly useless to the lecture and could just end up confusing people. It has gotten to the point that whenever he even speaks there is a huge groan from the entirety of the year. This doesn't deter him one bit, though and his relentless quest to piss everyone off has led to 3 plots to kill him, 2 for brutal torture and several to send him far far away.

Well, that's about it, really...

ZOMG... [30 Sep 2006|11:00am]

so long, moneyz... [29 Sep 2006|01:29pm]
I have discovered two more reasons, along with Halo 3, to get a 360:



New Banjo Kazooie and a Halo RTS? excellent.

I can feel my wallet crying out in pain already.

Hmm, with less than 24 hours until i go to uni, I have that odd feeling of total excitement and utter panic. Though i think i have most things sorted now.

The End... [26 Sep 2006|01:55am]
[ mood | tired ]

So, i've just returned from what is likely to be the last gathering in The Shire for at least a few months. The now regular trip to Hereford for the reasons of Free Pool, Free Jukebox and 24 hour tescos (while not free, is still extremely useful) was quite normal. However, in a break from tradition we did a tour of 3 pubs, each with a pool table. We eventually settled in the pub with the least amount of people wanting to use the pool, and as such, closed it (due to Aids, etc).

The last week or so has been sprinkled with such events, and the rather excellent and unexpected trip to see Clerks II in Worcester, about 50 miles from the starting point. We managed to get moderately lost again, and in doing so saw a ridiculous amount of policemen...although, as we did circle the same place a few times, a few of them were probably the same person.

As we left Olly's house this evening there were farewells of 'See you at Christmas'. Once we're all back from our respective unis, we're probably going to take a good 2 - 3 weeks before anyone is bothered to do or organise anything.

Saturday's going to be interesting.

too much rocking out... [16 Sep 2006|12:23am]
[ mood | calm ]

I've discovered that it's virtually impossible to play Guitar Hero at all when you have sweaty palms from playing it too much in a warm room. Although, the night's session has not been entirely fruitless and i'm getting closer and closer to that ever-elusive Guitar God ranking on the hard career. Though this will probably not happen for a while yet. Someday there is going to be the ultimate showdown of Simon and Myself playing Cowboys From Hell on expert difficulty. But that will also not happen for a while yet.

Apart from this, not a whole lot else has happened. I got some new shoes, Ordered the awesome Lego Star Wars 2 (which promises to be fun beyond words and worthy of removing the GH disc from my PS2) and got a book on analysis 'cause i was told it would be extremely useful. Good Ol' Warwick, they like to welcome you with a nice friendly Hardest Module in the First Year.

Another night out on Monday will most likely be a great time and (i hope) with the now mandatory trip to Tescos :P

Other than that it's probably going to be a relatively quiet weekend...I'll aim to get the final few things sorted for Uni, but of course I won't get this done and will just play guitar hero and reap the goods of Project Stargate.

night of win... [12 Sep 2006|10:40pm]
So Last night was possibly one of the greatest evenings evar. Kicking off at 8ish with the drive into Hereford accompanied by, what must now become mandatory, What Is Love? dancing. There was much rejoicing when we found out that the car park we were in only charged before 6. After acquiring moneyz we proceeded to Manhattens where much drinking, pool playing and random shouting of 4chan memes occured. The one most commonly uttered must have been Pool's Closed...i took the liberty of explaining it to the 2 non-/b/tards in the group. I was met by that general scornful look of pity that usually is shown in situations like this. However, it was a fun time.

then came going home via Belmont, of course. It was a very cosy trip there and Dave's driving and general navigation of the Belmont area was amusing. however, to be fair, that area is totally fucked right now.

Several snacks later we headed back to Olly#s to participate in the great habbo raid...it was just so much fun to watch.

At some point after 1 o clock i got home and proceeded to watch an episode of stargate before going to bed.

As simon said: 'Last night was made up of almost too much win'

too much lucozade... [31 Aug 2006|05:00pm]
[ mood | content ]

So, this last week or so has been mostly uneventful except for the overnight trip to Swansea. It was a lot of fun, but i maaaay have gotten slightly too drunk and done something stupid...i'm not certain.

Anyway, I've spent my days not doing a whole lot. Mostly watching anime and playing Deus Ex. Oh and Drinking Lucozade...I was so bored that I used the empty bottles to construct a large tower.

Ruth's party tonight and simon's on saturday both have high expectations for completely different reasons, so the next few days should prove interesting if not brain damaging.
