Webster's dictionary defines home as "A place of origin" and "The social unit formed by a family living together." For me, the question of Where is your home? is no longer as simple as saying That townhouse down on Meadowlands Dr. Home is just a concept of a certain place where you feel the utmost comfortable. You could call pretty much any place home, but what happens when your home is longer yourhome?
I've been fortunate enough to live in two different parts of North America. For 13 years, I lived in Ottawa, ON Canada but have lived in Hayward, CA USA for the past 4. I must say, the difference are subtle but are blatantly obvious when you look for them. Currently, I am on vacation in Ottawa for the summer for about 3 weeks. I had always called Ottawa home but I've been rethinking that. Home is a place where you're allowed to openly be yourself, and be loved for it. It's the place where
Preseason is coming soon so that means Fantasy Hockey is up. Kevin and I feel that this year there should be a site-wide Neoseeker Fantasy Hockey League. Last year, there were a few regulars from the Canada forum that participated but it didn't have that much of a turn out. I hope this year will be different.
With the release of their official website containing teaser videos that contains some info of the rethought newly designed, next-gen edition to the growing series of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, Conviction has hit up E3. Just hours ago, the Ubisoft presentation was ongoing and presenting new games that you should all expect to see (and hopefully enjoy) by at least this fall. But after around two years of delays and disappoint from die hard Splinter Cell fans alike (myself included), a new years turns the corner and Conviction explodes into life. Thought to have been completed scrapped from Ubisoft's mindset, information has been spilling onto the internet and into gamers' heads ever since.
Now, lets dissect Splinter Cell: Conviction for what it really is and what it seems to promise, just from a glance with some gameplay footage. Oh yeah!
I'll save you the time and just tell you, do not see this movie under any circumstances. I'm just warning you now...
» Synopsis Centered around an Account Manager, Wesley Gibson hates his life and constantly asks himself who the *bleep* is he. Being chased down by a group of assassins calling themselves The Fraternity after Gibson's father is killed. Gibson, trying to desperately take control of his life and understand who he is, joins The Fraternity in order to find out and kill who killed his father.
Plagued by pointless bullet-time action, a ridiculous script (based off of a comic book, which should stay a comic book btw) and predictable endings and "plot twister", this movie had me going "what the *bleep* did I just watch". To be quite honest, I don't know if this was an action movie with crude humor or a horribly scripted comedy with meaningless bullet-time action gunfights. At the end read more..
K, so I got straight out of bed after having a weird dream just so I can remember most of it enough to write it down.
Right so, it was a race. It started on this mushy, grass terrain into some water. There were dozens of us kids just in line, ready to race. When the announcer said go, we ran into the knee high water and just dashed. I didn't know what I was running towards until about half a mile in. In the distance, I could see a temple/fortress-like place. It had everything a castle would have but it was all colorful. Once I got on the sandy terrain, infront of the castle was sort of like a playground. The entrance was high above the sand so you had to climb on to the colorful jungle gym to get there. Unsure of what to do, I walk around the elevated platform and find a man singing there. I spot him and call out to him numerous times. He never turns around to directly look at me but I ca read more..
The social scene has never been my forte so to speak. I'm not what many considered "anti-social" but hell, I sure am not a social magnet. I'm not as shy or conceited as I used to be in, say 5th grade? High school and a little bit of the end of middle school really allowed myself to blossom into the person I want to be and the person I am today. Jackpot right? Well, heh....
I used to laugh of the thought of teenage relationships. I was like "what's the bloody point?!" Sure, I would generalize when I would say teenage relationships (like ages 16 and under) never worked out and the two parties involved were "going out" for the sake of "going out" and that really had me laugh. Well, it's high school and you can never turn a corner without some sort of couple making out and eating each other's faces. It's disgusting when you think about it and it's tempting to ruin the moment by maybe I dunno, read more..
