…it’s gonna be a long long time..

Updates coming in thick and fast now people. Birthdays, touching up, drums, irony, forums and batman. Finally getting this site fully up to date.

So let’s see i was going to do this update on Thursday, then Friday, then last night and now it’s Sunday night. On Saturday night (when this update was supposed to happen) I ended up getting the Booshambles Forum back up and Bot-porn free. This afternoon fixed all the missing graphics, need to change a couple of things still but it’s usable at least. Sign up now and give it a go!

I have also sorted out of a few dead links on the home page and a few trailers that youtube took down have been restored.

In my last update i said how i was going to buy the Call of Duty 250gb Xbox and i quote:

“Only getting it because the 2 xbox’s i have are chugging away on their last legs”

Well exactly 3 years and 2 weeks after the xbox i was going to keep was made, it died. So off to Frankfurt, Germany it went to be repaired. Hopefully i get another refurb, will just have to wait 3 weeks or so.

Troy finally turned 18, and i say finally because he has been counting down for about half a year now. Next week i will add a select few pictures to the scrapbook, the full set is on facebook if you know me. It was a very good night, i ended up talking to Paddy most of the night but i bumped into “Silky Dave” as we used to call him. Dave Aspinall was our Key Skills teacher at Kendal College 10 years ago this year and i haven’t really seen him since. He is a genuinely nice bloke and talked to him for a while.

From one of my youngest friends to now one of my oldest… Chris is turning a whopping 28 this week. I have most of his presents ready to give him. This bad film present idea should never have been started but i know for a fact he won’t have any of these beauties. At least i hope so because if he doesn’t they have to go on my DVD shelf. Postal strikes might hold off the others arriving we will have to see.

It has been a VISA melting time xbox wise, i bought a Rockband drumkit for £16.99, a microphone stand for £16.99 and Halo 3: ODST for £29.85. Thanks to the postal strike it has been “lost in the post” which means some fat posty down south has either sold it in the pub or he is playing it on his strike/week off. I have to wait until next Wednesday before i can get another one sent out to me. In the meantime i am borrowing Batman: Arkham Asylum; a superb game which goes to show you can make a good comic book game if you put the effort in.

I am going to work on the site some more as i have a few things that still need to go up including the long overdue redoing of the friends section. (I have more friends now you see).

I will hopefully be going to see Niteflights On the 23rd at The Yorkshire House in Lancaster. Not seen Sam in over a year so will be good to catch up. Go to his bands MySpace page and listen to the new song Chopin vs Montague, it’s super smoothly hot.

I will leave you with this awesome song from Of Montreal, the lyrics are just amazing.

I’m in a crisis
I need help
Come on mood shift, shift back to good again
Come on mood shift, shift back to good again
Come on, be a friend

Nina Twin is trying to help, and I
Really hope that she succeeds
Though I picked the thorny path myself
I’m afraid, afraid of where it leads

Chemicals, don’t strangle my pen
Chemicals, don’t make me sick again
I’m always so dubious of your intent
Like I can’t afford to replace what you’ve spent

Nina Twin is trying to help, and I
Really hope she gets me straight
Because my own inner cosmology
Has become too dense to navigate

I’m in a crisis
I need help
Come on mood shift, shift back to good again
Come on mood shift, shift back to good again
Come on, be a friend
Come on, be a friend

Chemicals, don’t flatten my mind
Chemicals, don’t mess me up this time
Know you bait me way more than you should
And it’s just like you to hurt me when I’m feeling good

Come on chemicals
Come on chemicals
Come on chemicals
Come on chemicals
Come on chemicals
Come on chemicals
Come on chemicals
Come on chemicals
Come on chemicals
Come on chemicals
Come on chemicals

Just shy of a month

Who's your big daddy (I doubt i was the first to think of that)

Who’s your big daddy (I doubt i was the first to think of that)

Not only was i sick of seeing Quark from Star Trek on my homepage, i have been wanting to update it for a month now. I have finally gotten round to it.

Where do i begin.

Well let’s see i am just reading when i last posted…

Ah well i got an Xbox 360 back it wasn’t mine though but a replacement. It’s quieter but i have found that the premium consoles for whatever reason take longer to sign into your profile than a core, why i don’t know.

It hasn’t been a month away from booshambles really, there has been a lot going on in the background especially with the scrapbook which is changing all the time. It’s now grown enough to be split into several sections and it is even easier for me to update. I recently took my digital camera with me to a place called wild burn in the lake district, where i happen to live.

Weirdly and disturbingly this was the first time THIS YEAR that i had left Kendal. Probably the longest time i have been in one place for along time. It was a great day out and if it’s possible to be proud of batteries then i am one of the lucky few who is. I managed to take 250 pictures on single set and probably could have taken more but it was getting late and needed to head back. There are a handful of pictures in the scrapbook under the photography section for you to have a look at. I managed to add a description to most of them so you know what is going on and why i took them etc.

I have been on a spending spree recently although for the most part it has been bargains, mainly cheap DVD’s but i have also got some more music. Robin Guthrie and Harold Budd have released two albums which i got from America using play.com’s play trade thingy. “After the Night Falls” and “Before the Day Breaks” are albums which complement each other really, I have really got into chilled out music recently and usually because of the films i have been watching. Which brings me on to the DVD’s.

I have given Bill Murray some attention and bought “The Life Aquatic”, “Lost in Translation” and a film i have yet to see called “Broken Flowers”. I want to add another unheard of DVD to reviews section so i might wait until my holiday next week to review and watch it.

Also Spongebob Squarepants Season 1 and 2 are on the way along with Fraiser Season 6, quite an eclectic mix of high brow comedy and children’s cartoons. Personally i think Spongebob is the only decent children’s TV program running today and it reminds me of Ren and Stimpy which i also love.

Wow on to a third chapter, this is quite a blogfest. I have also been learning schooladdict’s word association game over at Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s website hitrecord.org I feel confident enough to recite it all in one go. The poem/monologue/story was created by several people (myself included) by posting one word on a forum which was followed by another that was associated with that word. Then one of the forum members called schooladdict created a whole story out of the words and filled in the blanks. The best portion of it was then created into a recording by Joe and put on his website.

Finally i will end this with commenting on the caption. Yes i know there will probably be gamer sites using the same caption but i havn’t seen them so that will do. Plus anything is better than Quarks ugly bugger lugs staring at me whenever i launch firefox. If you have been living in a toilet for the last 6 months or you have a life which doesn’t involve games then you won’t know about bioshock.

It’s out next friday and i can’t wait. I am getting it on the 360 to get the best experience i can without buying a new computer. Sadly the Beast is getting too long in the tooth to run this young whippersnapper of a game so the 360 it is.

I think that will do for now, it is my 24th birthday soon, something i never thought i would type. Anyway i will update before during and after then no doubt.

Tatty Bye Bye
