Nintendo DS VS GBA

Nintendo DS VS GBA

I wrote this post draft years ago, at a time when I had only recently switched to Nintendo DS after years of loyal GBA playing, and I honestly thought the former console had some major benefits over the latter.

It does, but the benefits are slim compared to the cons, and as the benefits of the original GBA don't all carry on to the modified form of the GBA SP - there really isn't much you can do with a GBA that you wouldn't be able to do better with a DS. Only if you don't compare the actual games, the GBA may pose a serious challenge. After a few years of getting used to the NDS, and then a few days of playing some GBA once again: I feel like it's time to finally post this thing!


Fingernails & Boards

Fingernails across
The bored they boarded after
Slice them as fresh ice

Breathe Fire

Say what's up?
Where's my cut of life?
Should I cut all ties, start fresh,
That's far-fetched.
I've got the guts to fight.
I've done sit-ups, my bust is tight,
Next step is car lifts.
I'll haul my weight in street junk,
Living till my knees flunk, or my back breaks,
I have aches, all those days I feel stumped,
Sitting like a tree trunk in front of my PC slumped,
Eating After Eight hearing Mather's hateful beats pump.

And all I ever wanted was a puma.
How did I become a humorless Doomer, a consumer of broomers,
Trying to clean up my mess but it's hard when my boombox,
Rocks the block harder than the New Rock.

And all I wanted was meaning.
Did I lose the stream of hope gleaming after that last screening?
Haunted by demons so much I chose to be become one, where's the fun Hun,
I've been sitting here like I've been bolted by a stun gun.

I bolted. Sick of it all, revolted,
I somersaulted through the floor, crashed the door - better bolt it.
Ran out fast cause I felt bogged, it's better than jogging!
Till I lost my breath and felt my lungs coughing toxic, swapping out oxygen,
Fast like the hacks of a locksmith like I couldn't pull off it.

Hold up.

Let me catch my breath.
Let me have this stretch.

Three years later I'm still catching stress.
Breathe fire.

Days Go, Days Go

So much time just runs by sigh,
My oh my, the time it flies,
I have good days and all is fine,
But then comes night, and I don't...

I don't want to sleep!
I want to be up all week!
I don't want to sleep!
I want to be up all week!
I don't want to sleep!
I want to be up all week!
But I do feel a bit,

So much time just passes me,
At least I see, I'm lacking sleep,
I fell flat on my keys this week,
I guess I shouldn't feel so beat,
There's only so much time in days,
In months in weeks in years of sleet,
Of rain of pain of sun of fun,
Till life is run-on-off and DONE,
So at the time you think that no,
You should relax, and take it slow,
And stress a lesson less just know,
The days they go, they go, they go,
They go.

Week 50 - Christmas Closing...

Christmas is closing in fast! I've had plenty of time, for plenty of projects, but suddenly I'm metaphorically snowed in and wondering what I should prioritize. We had our first real snow this winter a couple of days ago, it melted fast, froze over and covered the world in a cold hard blanket of invisibly slippery substance. Then it melted again, and this time it didn't freeze! Haha!

I'm back to playing Pokemon Ruby (to attain Pokemon for the next gen Pal Park import feature in Pokemon Diamond) late nights after ferociously reading through my first four Harry Potter books (will borrow remaining trilogy). I'm hooked on the one-part Killer Mike's hiphop duo collabo Run The Jewels newest album, creatively titled Run The Jewels 2 (here's one video from this album and one from the last one) and I just discovered some filters in Fireworks that let you do amazing things!

I'm planning to make a little interactive showcase of all the alternative versions that Christmas Card spawned before reaching its final form, with selectable layers so you can see exactly how everything combines. It's my first art project where I've 1) drawn a card with purely pencil and paper 2) scanned the drawing 3) colored it in Fireworks and 4) outlined it in Flash 5) removed certain parts through Fireworks 6) inverted the stars and erased the background 7) covered all cut lines with additional outlines 8) added original layers with filters for overdrawn detail 9) dotted a thousand stars and 10) added hidden Illuminati symbolics... because that's what the collab was all about. Phew. Finished. Finally.

I also just scraped together the last hexalist update. I just started playing Crystal Story II (it's addicting). I was just made aware there's a TV series made off of the Transporter movies! I watched the first four episodes yesterday, it felt generic and plain and had a crappy theme song, and no Jason Statham, but the police officer is still the same. I've done a bunch of other interesting things, I think, but it's past midnight and my memory's currently malfunctioning, so I'm off to Pokemon.

New on the blog: 6 movie review and these (a blog) other (a music video) things (a kickstarter plug). Also check out the early drafts for that Christmas card I've been working on! Here's last week.

At The New Day Dawning...

Tomorrow is going to be so busy,
I'd rather not enlist me, but it is the way it is see,
And in this eve of night, amidst my evil minds inner eye, deep,
In the misty cobwebs of my sixth keep, I wish sleep,
I'll gift me, my wish free and flee this PC,
