Got Skills To Scratch?

leave a comment »

Sure, definitely, I can scratch. I mean, I’m a pro, didn’t you know that? I’m the best ever scratcher available! Give me an itch, any itch and I’ll scratch it, and damn will I scratch it goooooooood. =D

Haha, now the kind of scratching I’m talking about lies in an absolutely different context. It’s DJ scratching. And again this form of DJ Scratching lies also in another different context.

Anyone seen this before?

Yes people, Celcom UOX decided to come by HELP University College today and set up their booth at the Lower Foyer of main block to hold both a DJ Hero and FIFA World Cup gaming competition. The gaming platform available was the ever versatile PS3.

Now, me being a huge fan of the Hero and Rockband franchises, the moment I caught wind of DJ Hero coming out I knew I had to give it a try. The thing is I never really got a chance to play this game until today.

Celcom UOX was giving some people a shot at winning one of the three available prizes for DJ Hero (of course the same prizes are available for FIFA but I’m more interested in the latter) and I shall refrain from letting you readers know what the prizes are since I myself am competing to win. Yes, turning about RM10.00~RM40.00 into one of those prizes is definitely worth it.

And guess who made the 1st place High Score and beat the second players score by two times more points?

Now I never meant to sound like I was bragging, I was surprised myself, I’m normally quite sucky with these games and it takes forever for me to get one song down pat. And believe me, the game is more complex than it seems, the controller is nice and simple enough to use but when your fingertips get sweaty you have quite the high risk of slipping off the buttons when you need to scratch at a certain part of the song. And the game features a track in which you need the crossfader to follow, meaning if the track for blue moves left you have to move the crossfading switch to the left and if the track for green moves to the right you have to move the switch to the right. Red never gets affected but with green and blue, if you don’t keep it in the middle of the track, either one gets affected and you gain less points. Plus you have various effects that help you gain more points but only means more multitasking and I assure you, us males are quite useless in that department, I mean, I cant even talk on the phone and look for something in the fridge to eat at the same time. XD Go females, kudos to you for mastering such a complex art 😉

Celcom UOX will still be there tomorrow as well from 8am-6pm again to give more people a shot at trying any of the games but for the FIFA, you football fans better sign up now cause it’s one of those tournament type matches and if I’m not mistaken it was almost full when I finally left.

So if you’re there tomorrow to try out, best be assured, I’ll be there to top your score until I get something.

Cheers. =)

The Quick Post (but it’s long)

leave a comment »

Okay, okay, I knew I said that I would update more often but I hadn’t found the time to do so, so don’t crucify me yet.

On Friday, before Km and I headed back to Penang, we and Jason were on the bus from KPD back to Main Block when Jason sat down next to this person (I shall refrain from identifying the sex, name nor any other descriptions that may give this person away).

Let’s just say that there are some pretty (for the lack of a better word) funny (and I’m being generous) people out there. I know that there are those who try and then there are those who try too hard. And finally you reach one who deserves, in all it’s glory, the biggest facepalm on earth.

 If no palm big enough can be found, not to worry, it can be replaced with the tripple facepalm

Step 1: facepalm

Step 2: execute a double facepalm with your other hand (this does not require one to remove the previous palm)

Step 3: borrow a friends palm and execute the tripple facepalm

Fine, I’ll cut to the chase.

Jason, Km and I were talking about random stuff, well, as random as we can get, and this person sitting next to Jason (who so unfortunately found the seat next to this person infront of us) couldn’t help but hear (trust me, couldn’t) and catch the interest in our conversation.

So our conversation drifted to cocktails and the drink in question was the Bloody Mary.

Hehe, just kidding, just a little tongue in cheek (so please don’t crucify me). Yes, yes for those who’ve been blogging for years and have managed to achieve a celebrity status and hence start to scrutinise and criticise every single blog you come upon, forgive me for stirring thy anger and unleashing thy lords wrath and fury simply because, I know I said the word drink but cant a guy crack a lame joke without getting shot for it ? Jeez gimme a break. If you cant that just goes to show how much your sense of humour amounts to…. Either that or Jason’s got his Army knife open at all angles and shoved up your ass derriere.

So, yes the cocktail, Bloody Mary as illustrated below.

So we were talking, and Jason wondered if you could switch the regular Tabasco sauce with the Habanero Tabasco sauce and rename it Screaming Mary, or Mary’s Screaming Orgasm. Jason, Jason. XD

Just so you’ll know, Habanero boasts as the worlds hottest hot sauce so if you’re up for it I suggest you go get a bottle, it’ll leave you like this

So, with all that aside, we started to list down the ingredients for a Bloody Mary.

Ingredients: Vodka, Tabasco Sauce, Pepper, Salt, Tomato Juice, Lemon Juice (just a little) and a Celery Stick

Then out of the blue, this person just turns around to us and says “Really ? That’s what it’s made of ? I never knew”

Now at this point we thought that this person was ok (I said at this point, that point, that one point which changed every nice perception we had)

And this person now finally goes on saying “I’ve wondered why they call it a cocktail, do you know ? I mean, to put 2 words together one of them being vulgar and the other a random object and name it for drinks. Don’t you find that disturbing ? I mean think about it (this person refused to stop, and people started to stare cause this person was talking at the top of his voice) COCK and TAIL !! COCKTAIL it’s like saying the COCK has a TAIL ! Do you know what vodka is made of ? I know. Do you know ? (I answered potatoes, this only shuts this person up for about 3 secs) Owh ok. I’ve always wondered why do people call each other fucker. I mean (Km tried to shut him up by saying “Isnt it kinda like why girls call each other bitches ?” and this proves futile too) like people call me fucker, and I tell them I’m not a fucker I’m a virgin !! Kinda like that song ‘tell tell your boyfriend, that I’m a vegetarian and I ain’t fucking scared of him’ ”

At this point there was this girl who gave him the wth look. And we didn’t know where to put our faces.

Luckily the bus just arrived and we left with haste, yes, I never knew I could run that fast,  I do le Parkour but never in my life have I blazed out of the bus that quick.

So to this person, I salute you. You deserve a facepalm.

So here it is.




So, there, I’ve updated, now stop grumbling and once you’ve read it, shut off your computer and go outside and play.

Blog Re-test

leave a comment »

Testin, testing, 1, 2, 3.

Alright, wow, now this is new… Well not exactly new, man, its been a year plus since i blogged clocking this to be my SECOND ever POST !! *applause applause*

Okay fine, I’ll start blogging again, I used to have another blog but I think it got lost in the ever expanding virtual space that we manage to access every now and then, my, my, what a wonder. And what a waste too, my older blog was pretty good, but anyways, can’t do much about it now really, so I’ll just bring back from the dead (for over a year) my old blog (which is this one), but sorry folks, no fancy spells or ancient magic to revive the dead, just only a few mouse clicks, some keyboard typing and a loquacious mind oughtta do the trick, you should try it too, good way to rant, rave an write whatever it is you want to write !!

So, this is just a test post, I’m currently somewhere where blogging is not that appropriate (nope not in some country with massive red tape and ridiculous laws where you can only sms at bus stands or blog every 13th hour or so) but I shant reveal where, I think most of my friends would know actually. But never the less !! This blog WILL be updated by TONIGHT !!  Or in the EVENING or sometime before 12am TODAY !!

So keep your eyes peeled peeps, and your mice at the ready.

Over and Out !
