2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!

Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.

The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.

I GOT LAID OFF!! ><

Posted February 2nd, 2009 at 09:30 AM by Mario The World Champion (The Final Countdown!)

Well, I REALLY HATE 2009 already!! This past weekend, me and about 50 other people got laid off at my former job. Well, here's the whole story.

I got a call early Friday morning saying I needed to come in at 1 P.M. I knew something was up then. So I arrived and I looked in the cafeteria and I see just aboiut everybody who works there inside the place!! I knew something bad was going down.

So, I got there and sure enough, the higher ups said that their predictions...

Reliving some old, Commodore 64 gaming classics...

Posted January 28th, 2009 at 12:43 AM by Mario The World Champion (The Final Countdown!)

When I was growing up in the 1980's, I was around when the NES was IN back then. I played my heart away with that system, despite that I had to go to bed after playing it. I was still a little kid back then. But there was another video game system I was attached to. Actually, it was more of a computer system than a game console: The Commodore 64.

My parents bought that thing before I could even remember. I think it was 1985 or something. I don't know when it was, but that computer...

15 more weeks...

Posted January 19th, 2009 at 10:39 PM by Mario The World Champion (The Final Countdown!)

With slow business, rumors of layoffs and other crap going around my job and Anime Boston in 4 months, I think I may have three options for me to utilize if I do lose my job.

Either way...
I WILL GO TO ANIME BOSTON 2009!!

Okay, as of January 20th, I have saved up $500 so far. My goal is the $1800 region. I hit that goal last year, but that was before the recession bullcrap. But now that everybody's paranoid about the economy, including me, I've figured out...

Dusting off Diamond

Posted January 17th, 2009 at 10:09 PM by Mario The World Champion (The Final Countdown!)

You know what's the strangest thing I've done in 2008? Not play Pokemon Diamond ALL YEAR!!!

What I'm talking about is pure simply, after playing the crap out of Pokemon Diamond all of 2007, I just simply dropped it from my list of games I play in 2008. From what the game's journal thing says, that last time I played a long session was January 17, 2008!!

That's a whole year!!!

Also, I beat the Elite Four a week before and I decided to take a breather....

Anime Boston 2009, my job, paranoia, Obama and the Economy

Posted January 14th, 2009 at 10:41 PM by Mario The World Champion (The Final Countdown!)

Welcome to 2009! We would like to start the year by NOT laying you off. Instead, please accept a 4 hour reduction of your work week.

The U.S. Economy is really kicking everybody when they are down. And it's even affecting my job. I work at a tube place and after the new year started, we were told by the higher ups that in an effort to not lay off people, but keep costs down, the plant is going to go to a 36 hour work week. Meaning, we lose 4 hours of pay, but we still keep our...
