Martial Law

Just a post to confuse

I was curious if my life was any different that others that I see walking around in places that I tend to frequent, so I randomly asked several folks around how they live. It seemed a odd thing to do I know and I did get more than a few “who the fuck are you” looks, but over all the data I got back told me something I have known for some time.  I am a hermit and I hate people. Ok, maybe hate is much too strong a word for me to use, but I must admit that most of the world really annoys me on some level or another.


My life is not what I would call ideal, but I have come to enjoy it and to be honest, there is very little stress in it, which I consider good for the overall being of my health. While I live with two roommates, one of them I interact with very little as their time is spent in the garage which has been turned into a hobby shop for model boat building. We are not talking small little things either these are scale size model with a lot of detail work put in. Most nights he is in there tolling away, and on the weekend, we find him joined by the many friends he has that do the same thing. He is quite happy with his life, and I can see that in him. My other roommate or landlord spends her time working three or four different part time jobs so is always in and out of the house, or busy with friends. She is a social butterfly and has a disarming personality, which seems to come to the forefront when the house and garage is full of boys. She is a man’s girl, not a girly girl, and is more at home chatting with guys and reveling in her drama then dealing with girls, thus the reason she has for the most part guy friends. She is still quite awesome and a delight and she can spackle with the best of them.


Then there is me, when not at work, I am either reading a book, watching one of the many TV shows I have TiVio’d or I am playing a video game on either my Laptop, PC or my Xbox 360. The latter of which is a new purchase, and the two games I am playing are somewhat fun, but not as enjoyable as the game I just finished playing on my laptop. From time to time I do attend a live action game, but these have become somewhat boring to me, and do require a certain amount of energy to show up and play. This is my life not a bad one, but I don’t really have any friends nearby and I have found an activity that makes me go and get some. Time my dear is something I value. Wasted time is the devils works and well, I admit that on most days, spending time with anyone is in my mind wasted time. This I know is perhaps not a good thing, something that I think each of us needs to look at, none more so than me. Yet, I decided to look back at my life and I came to realize that I have never had that many friends. I had a few in high school, of which I have only stayed in contact with one. For the rest of those I have made over the years, they have come and gone, mostly consider do to my fault at not working to maintain those relationships, something I have never been good about. Somewhere bar buddies, and I do not go to bars anymore. Some just moved away, and contacts where lost never to be heard from again. But those that I would have liked to stay in touch with, I just never did. Perhaps that truly is something about me that I must come to accept. That life and those around no matter the true outcome can all be attributed to your desire to work at what you want.


My desires I believe are rather simple. To not die broke, be happy, live simple and enjoy that which is around you. Does this necessitate that I have friends or even lots of them to fulfill those desires? I don’t think so, although as we have seen perhaps getting a few friends to spend time with perhaps might not be such a bad thing. Don’t want people to look at me and worry I might gun them down, or blow them up. Hmm, there is this one… o never mind that was just a bad thought.

WEll nothing has change with this.

You Are An ENTJ

The Executive

You are a natural leader - with confidence and strength that inspires others.

Driven to succeed, you are always looking for ways to gain, power, knowledge, and expertise.

Sometimes you aren't the most considerate person, especially to those who are a bit slow.

You are not easily intimidated - and you have a commanding, awe-inspiring presence.

In love, you hold high standards... for yourself, for your relationship, and for your significant other.

While it's easy for you to impress others, it's hard for you to find someone who impresses you.

At work, you are organized and good at delegating. You understand how to achieve goals.

You would make a great CEO, entrepreneur, or consultant.

How you see yourself: Rational, calm, and objective

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Inflexible, controlling, and overbearing

{Cam} Whatever shall I Do?

So of late this reset thing has gotten me thinking, what shall I Do? I just can’t see myself playing a character that was more powerful one day and then a weak as punk the next. I don’t care what the story is, you have taken away things that I used to help craft the character and over time build him up, now it’s gone.


For Harbin it’s not so bad. He has only been in play for a year so while I am losing over ½ it not a bit more of his xp on rebuild, I can find a way to make it work.


Seppo on the other hand I think I will just retire. He has never been much of a Crone since coming in play, and other then being a thug I don’t have much of a story for him to tell anymore. Instead I think I might retire him in June and create a new character for the reset. So I am thinking about joining a group of friends and creating an Ordo Dracul Coterie, what I shall play in that group is up in the air at this time. Suggestions from anyone that reads this?


Regardless of WW intention, I would have rather had a hard reset or no reset at all. I am in the boat with several others that in a year or two they will come out with WOD 2.0 and thus we will have a hard reset then, which being the case I would have waited.


More later.

Say what you will but live with it....

There are things going on in many places of the land of LJ and one of my gaming habits. I am often one that agrees with the need to ensure our freedom of speech, but I also believe there is a certain amount of responsibility that comes with it. I am not a fan of anarchy, nor do I condone it, because that sort of speech or expressed desire for freedom, leads to a dark path which can only hinder society not help it.

I do not condone hate speech, or speech that references a dark part in history and tries to bring it to the forefront and make it relevant to something today.

In the last few days I have heard several folks refer to what is going on in a club I am part of as "Nazi" like tactics. Lets first look at the US as a whole and its history: We as a country have denied for years women the right to vote and have treated those of African-American decent with little regard and even when they were given the right to vote this country didn't protect it, it took 100 + more years for it to be truly fully realized. Women were given the right, long after this county was founded, but it took a lot of work to make that happen. Those of other ethic ancestry took even longer and let’s not talk about how Japanese in World War II where treated, or how we after 9-11 treated or looked at those of Middle Eastern decent.

To those that would say or use a group from the past to describe a club or its leaders or the owner as such needs to look at their own county, for we have denied the right and freedom of so many in our own past. We have censored and tortured and condemn many all in the name of National Security. Look at how this county has treated its gays and lesbians over the years. Or let’s not forget the fun hearings on Un-American Activities during the 1950's.

It’s easy to look at one group from the past and use them to identify a behavior you do not condone, but in doing so, you also show an utter lack of intelligence for yourself and those that were hurt by those very activities.

Call it censorship, call it capitalist heavy handiness, do not every refer to it as something the Nazi's have done, that just makes you look racist and stupid.

Good night all.

The B-Day update.

My dear reader,


Today is a day that will live in the hearts and minds of men and women, or women and men until the end of days, or at least until midnight tonight. It is a day that many wish would never had happen, and some still pray that I will rise up and walk on water, hmm ok that last part is only me but what the heck.


Yes that is right my dear sweet readers it is my birthday and you must suffer the fate of me turning 42. You must live with the fact that I am one day closer to godhood, I mean old age, I mean being better looking, ah shit never mind I am just old and fat and one year older then last.


I look around at our little blue and brown(smog my friends) bubble in the universe and wonder if we are really going to make it, how far will be let things go until we finally realize that our greed or lust for things is killing us. Did I mention I got a new monitor for my computer? I thought this was a good place to mention that.


Hmm ok, so philosophy is out the door today, what else shall I try. Ah what does it matter its my birthday and I just want to say hello to all and to all a good night.

Just a update of my life.....

Several folks have contacted me asking me if work is keeping me busy or if I will ever back to playing WOW?


Of late work has been keeping me overly busy, but that work is now done and I am back to my normal work routine which means I have more time on my hand, so I loaded the Eve client on my laptop and also EveMon. While I can log into to Eve, I really can’t play the game, but I can make better us of skill training times and do a few sales on the market. But my poor old laptop wines away trying to stay cool while I run it; Poor onboard Intel graphics processer. Soon I will have 1 gig of ram in the old girl, not sure that will help out. But for now its fine.


I have to say I am overall very happy with my new Corp. They have been helpful with making sure I don’t train silly skills I don’t need, and taken me on mission runs to help me make money. I can’t wait for the next mining OP. I have paid for a second account and now have an Engineer type doing skill training for the new few weeks, while I figure out her final place.


For those that wish to offer advice I will list the name and API so you can pull both characters into EveMon and offer suggestions:



Shinjin Takana (New Alt)

User ID: 4340938
API Key: F90FF9444DCA480090178724E501D746C1CC2FD660B6471184D6588E4D487D68

On the WOW front I will be playing a bit next week to help lvl my toon, and I will be giving Russ the GM spot for now as I am not as active as the guild needs. I wish I could say I will be more active in the future, but my problem is that I don’t like playing alone, and leveling right now means playing alone, and that is boring to me. I want to chat on line with folks while I do stuff and EvE has been giving me that.


On a personal note, life is ok, money could be a bit better but I am fine bills are paid, but I hate this time of year, and on Sunday I turn 42 – Yuck.. (ok maybe hate is a strong word, how about dislike)


Love and Kiss from the far reaches of space.
