Imma be Fame-ous one Day

So i got to go and check out the FAME awards on saturday night. which was pretty interesting to say the least. the FAME awards are the Fiji Awards for Media Excellence, which should really be the FAF-ME awards, but people don't like being called faffy, so i guess they decided to go with the whole fame thing. which is good. yay for you guys.
anyway, it was good, a whole bunch of the media bigwigs showed their faces and shook hands and kissed ass and all that, which is to be expected when they gather under one roof. the beer was free, i enjoyed that.
the ceremony was pretty short and sweet, with about one award a minute going out, i guess they didn't want a whole Oscars night, that lasts ages because people are giving speeches. because we all know how them media people love their chatter. so yeah, they announced the winner, the winner runs on stage quickly, grabs their new paperweight and runs off stage before the next winner is announced. it was a good cycle. a cycle of winners.
i'm tempted at this moment in time to make slightly vitriolic comments regarding the amount of entries that were handed in. the thing is, you have to enter yourself in the competition, to have a chance to win. i don't know if there's a way to sponsor someone for an entry, but the only ones who were considered for awards were people who were confident enough to blow their own horns so to speak.
but regardless, the food was good, the beer was tasty, my uncle scooped a prize and i got to catch up with an old friend from my high school days, which is always good. she almost ran me over with her car later on in the evening, but i would tried to do the same had i been in that situation.
but yeah, one day, i'm going to be famous. i'm already awesome, so it'll kinda be like a step down.

Shocked Biologically

so last night i had the oppurtunity to watch someone play the demo of Bioshock. not play it, mind you, just watch it. i was offered the chance to, but after observing i could honestly say i was...scared? i dunno, it's been a while since something freaked me out like that. that game is scary.
i honestly have not been as scared of a game like that, since i played Resident Evil 2 on the playstation. it's atmospheric, and moody, well made and .... freaky.
whispers in dark corners, people arguing in the distance, and a sense of wrong-ness that permeates through the city of rapture. and don't get me started on the little girls. it may be cheap to use children for scares ( the ring, grudge, movies like that) but goddamn, sometimes it's done well.
bioshock scares me...

What this thing Here is For

I suppose it's for random thoughts and things like that. By this thing, of course I'm referring to the blog that you, who are part of a select and elite few, are reading. I'm not very good at going out there, and finding things to write or talk about, mainly because i couldn't be bothered to most of the time. now i know that this isn't the "best" way to live a life. people go on and on about things like, excitement and adventure. these things often happen to me, but rarely when i go out seeking them.
