2 Inches Of Fury

Something Worth Reading.

Xenoblade Is Coming!

Everyone I speak to on a regular basis knows and that I am excited about the release of this game.
But for those that I don’t speak to often, this game should be awesome.

This video clip looks nice but you don’t get to see any of the fighting mechanics. But a simple youtube search can fix that up. And there’s plenty to choose from. Most of them being kids whose primary language is English and they’re playing the already-released Japanese version. Which is in, of course, Japanese. Which results in blindly showing us what can be done in the game without really knowing. I’ll be happier once it arrives on our shores in English.
Finally! A game for the Wii which the other consoles are going to miss out. Makes me less embarrassed for owning a Wii now.

Oh, and the new Kirby is also coming out for the Wii:

Should be fucking awesome.

Most Interesting Band Names

I got this list of Interesting Band Names.
Oddly, there are names in that list that I know. Some I don’t but here are my favourite band names from this list:
* Begging for Incest
* Kiss the Anus of a Black Cat
* Anally Fucked With A Cheese Grater
* Satan’s Almighty Penis

I am seeing a pattern.
I like names of bands that either have dicks or arseholes in them.

The Smiths / Hungerford Massacre

Say what you will but this both intrigues and scares the shit out of me.
I find it interesting reading about tragic situations where someone snaps and does something fucked up and goes out of control and kills a bunch of people. I was watching this video clip of the Smiths and it turns out they couldn’t release this as a single in UK:

The song was originally supposed to be released as a single and a music video was filmed, featuring scenes of the group-iconic Salford Lads Club and surrounding areas being bicycled through by the lads and friends. Because of a reference to “plan a mass murder” in one lyric it was banned from airplay by the BBC because of the then recent Hungerford massacre, so the band decided not to release it in the UK, however it was released in various other regions including North America, Europe, Australasia and Japan.

Before now, I didn’t know much about the Hungerford massacre:

The Hungerford massacre occurred in Hungerford, Berkshire, England, on 19 August 1987. The gunman, 27-year-old Michael Robert Ryan, armed with two semi-automatic rifles and a handgun, shot and killed sixteen people including his mother, and wounded fifteen others, then fatally shot himself[…]It remains, along with the 1996 Dunblane massacre and the 2010 Cumbria shootings, one of the worst criminal atrocities involving firearms in British history.

What it doesn’t say on the Wiki page is what caused him to go off the deep end. Why did he have a near-obsessive fascination with firearms? That is the part that interests me. Why would anyone really want to do this? And since I had some time, I thought I would look into what the Dunblane Massacre was as well:

The Dunblane massacre was a multiple murder-suicide which occurred at Dunblane Primary School in the Scottish town of Dunblane on 13 March 1996. Sixteen children and one adult were killed by Thomas Hamilton before he committed suicide.

Only, this time, it seems that the perp was a self-hating pedo who took his frustrations out on the world.

The Cumbria shootings were a killing spree that occurred on 2 June 2010 when a lone gunman, Derrick Bird, killed 12 people and injured 11 others before killing himself in the county of Cumbria, United Kingdom. The series of attacks began in mid-morning in Lamplugh and moved to Frizington, Whitehaven, Egremont, Gosforth and Seascale, sparking a major manhunt by Cumbria Constabulary. Bird, a 52-year-old local taxi driver, was later found dead in a wooded area, having abandoned his vehicle in the village of Boot. Two weapons that appeared to have been used were recovered. There were 30 different crime scenes investigated. Police confirmed it was the worst incident of mass shooting in Britain since the Dunblane massacre of 1996.

This seems to be more over tax evasion and inheritance than anything else so since he was going to the dogs, he might as well make a day of it before ending it all.
Remind me never to go the UK. Although if these are anything to go by, the next one will be in 2030.

Review: Hall Pass


Be aware there maybe spoilers.
There were parts that made me laugh. Like the pick up lines - “Are you from Ireland? Because when I see you, my penis is Dublin.”
But, this film filled me mostly with hatred. And it is not because for an almost 2 hour long film, it had 20 minutes of solid comedy. It’s because I painfully identify with male characters. Ok maybe, not to the extreme of getting busted by the cops after being caught wacking off in my car out the front of my house. But these guys were good, clean wholesome family men who dedicate themselves to their families. Ultimately, all they wanted is more sex from their wives. They wouldn’t be talking about it all the time if they just got a little more. They put in time around the house to help out with the women, so how hard is it to spread em while he goes to town? I am sure you could even bargain with him down to letting him but not pretending that you are really into it.
And what did the wives do? Fuck shit up. And not in a that’s-fucking-cool-Bruce-Willis-In-Any-Die-Hard-Film way. Their fear was after however many years, that the men would be thinking about other women when they’re having sex with them and this whole thing stems from that insecurity. Are you fucking mental? Ladies, unless you’re married to a model who continues to keep his appearance up, I bet you my left nut you will be thinking about another man when your husband gives it to you. That is assuming you can be arsed into having sex by lying there and just taking it.

I initially thought, you wouldn’t cheat if your wife was Christina Applegate or Jenna Wassisface from the Office. But let’s say that you are married to them and they don’t put out. Then you are in the same conundrum these guys are in. It doesn’t matter if she is as hot as the sun. If she doesn’t put out, then the point is moot.
The attitude of the women in this whole story is fucked. Give the man what he wants and this whole thing will just blow over. How do they not get that having a man pick up a woman is 10 times more difficult than a woman trying to pick up a man? They made a big deal about what the man was getting up to but the women were really more to blame in this story.
And then the men went about the whole process all wrong. Of course, going for comedic effect - I get it. And sometimes it was funny but not in such a way that would warrant a laugh out loud situation unless you’re an American that laughs at anything. Ya know, even if you didn’t get the reference like half the audience that watches the Big Bang Theory. The thing is, you could have progressed the story a little faster. The Golf trip OK, and Applebys was a funny starter but then dwindled on that joke for far too long. Once they finally found the right place, spent too long on trying to establish relationships or at least a foundation for a one night stand. It could be a generation gap talking here but who cares if the band the woman likes is shitty? You go, “Yeah, I fucking love this band…” bang the shit out of her and move on like Gene Simmons at a Kiss after party or Ron Jeremy in any porn that stars Ron Jeremy. And who cares if she is too young? She’s legal, right? If you don’t brag about it to your friends, then that could have been another potential root that could have happened instead of the men realising that they lacked the bollocks to go through with it before it degenerated into a safe chick flick. This could have been so much more than the disappointment this movie was. It starts off with a premise on potential here. I mean, if How I Met Your Mother can go 6 whole seasons based loosely on a set of theories based around picking up women, surely you could have taken the best hour and a half from that show and made a fucking great film out of it.
They took every situation and made it Disney-friendly.
The way I see it is these lazy sluts these men have as wives were simply transferring their responsibilities in the relationship to a random slut these guys could potentially be banging. If they got laid to begin with, we could have all moved on and saved me from sitting through mostly unfunny garbage.

Out of the 110 minutes you made me sit there patiently, there was 20 enjoyable minutes. So, out of 5 stars, you get 0.90 stars by comparative ratio.

The K Experience: Dilbert / Bosses

I was reading Dilbert and this entry came up.

Then it was pointed out that this theory actually exists. It’s called the Peter Principle.

The Peter Principle states that “in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence”, meaning that employees tend to be promoted until they reach a position at which they cannot work competently.

Well actually there is a small spin on this in this instance called The Dilbert Principle.

The Dilbert principle refers to a 1990s satirical observation by Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams stating that companies tend to systematically promote their least-competent employees to management (generally middle management), in order to limit the amount of damage they are capable of doing.

0 Star Hotel

In Switzerland, there is A 0 Star Hotel.
The thing is, I’ve seen far worse places than this so I would say this is at least a 1 star hotel. I mean, these pictures scare the fuck out of me. I am not sure why but Switzerland seems like a bit of an odd place. The darkness and atmosphere in each photo has a eerie something about it. Like something will come out of the walls and kill you in your sleep. Or there it is an town where a lot of murders live.

They gave it zero star rating so as not to limit themselves on what the place is offering.

Which is clearly not much.
But, I am not 100% convinced that this is truly a 0 star hotel. Because if it truly were a 0 star hotel, here are some things I would expect to see:
* No Windows. Ok, they have this covered.
* Upon arrival, there is no person to greet you. Just a place for you to dump you $13 into. Or someone who looks like a concierge but is really there to rob you blind.
* No running water. At best running sewerage.
* No bed. There is one of those $10 inch-thick blue foam mattresses available. But there is a $10 deposit and then a $5/night fee. And there is only 1.
* 2 out of 4 walls are functional.
* There are Toilet facilities. But they don’t work. And there is no sign to let you know until you try to flush. Which is odd because no one else has left anything in there before I started shitting.
* Your room mates are a hobo or a man who had his wife recently leave him who does nothing except cry all night shouting her name out at random intervals.
I think I am going to stop because this paints a picture far too vivid and I need to sleep tonight.

The Doors

Not many people know this but The Doors’ hit, “Love me Two Times” was originally called, “Love me one and a half times and finish me off with a tugjob“. They then changed it to, “Love me two and a half times before I give up and you can take care of your own needs bitch ’cause I have to sleep“. It was considered far too misogynistic and the title was too long. They re-wrote the lyrics and negotiated it down to “Love me Two Times and if you’re still not satisfied by this stage, you have something seriously wrong with you“. Still feeling it was still a little too long, they all agreed on, “Love me Two Times“, re-wrote in a tonne of sexual ambiguity and left the rest up to us - the listener.
