hold the pig steady

December 23, 2011

got to talking in gbc today about a fictional song mentioned in the first and second of larry correia’s monster hunter series of books so i figured is try my hand at it. i know its shoddy at best but here goes

daddy was dreaming screaming
hold the pig steady
screaming dreaming
hold the pig steady

charlies on the rise
taking our size
waiting to kill
ready for the drill

screaming dreaming
hold the pig steady
dreaming screaming
hold the pig steady

we were walking the line
charlie was on the loose
patrolling for a sign
looking for a noose

screaming dreaming
hold the pig steady
dreaming screaming
hold the pig steady

hue was the place
where we came face to face
captain said be ready
hold the pig steady

screaming dreaming
hold the pigh steady
dreaming screaming
hold the pig steady

the tracers were flying
the fires were dying
charlie was runnin
we kept on gunnin

daddy was dreaming screaming
hold the pig steady
screaming dreaming
hold the pig steady
hold the pig steady
hold the pig steady
AHH AHH AHH AHHHHHHHH!!

Portal 2 review

April 22, 2011

ok Portal 2 valves next foray into the fps puzzle shooter or what ever the hell you want to call it, alright i went and picked it up yesterday and have played a good bit of it in the intervening time since then, the first half of the game is kind of disappointing its ssdd from the first game only now your dealing with a deranged ai with a vendetta against you for “destroying her in the previous game. so those level are familiar territory, its chapter 6 where the money is at you end up getting dropped down this long damn shaft and end up in what appears to be the original aperture labs complex. at this point your going to be running around an area that looks an awful lot like it was built in the 50’s or 60’s with no real help on what to do or where to go and very limited on where you can throw your portals.

over all im enjoying it is it worth the 50 bones i paid for no not realy kinda wish id have waited for the price to drop, is it a fun game yes yes it is, would i recommend it to others yeah probaly if they asked for my opinion

and that friends is my brief review of portal 2

3.5 out of 5

Making Sarah Brady cry

April 16, 2011

the other day while speaking to a female friend of mine from back in my highschool days.  some how we got onto the topic of guns, well she mentioned that she had been given one for personal protection by her stepfather when she gave her then fiance the boot. she told me that she fell in love with shooting when she was taken to the range to get a feel for it. she said she is not completly comfortable with the heater she has now but would like to try out other ones until she finds one that she likes and is confortable. me being me i offered to take her out window shopping for them next time i am home in michigan and she is realy excited about that.

Cry sarah brady cry, another female gunnie has been born

the end of my life as i know it. part 1

April 14, 2011

well where to begin.

lets just go with whats actually happening then ill get into the details of it. As of right now i am in the beginning stages of a divorce from my wife of four and a half years. how did this all come about you ask well there is really no one thing that i can point to, to be perfectly honest there is no one big event, its more a long series of small things that have just all combined and hit critical mass. But lets start from the beginning of this story. it all started i want to say it was last friday or saturday i  don’t remember exactly what day it was but that’s not really important anyway. i had lain down on the couch to take a nape at some point in the early afternoon while the wife went out to put in a couple of applications or some such. well i woke up shortly after she got home and headed up to my office to fuck off on the computer and i forgot my phone down stairs on the couch, well at some point while i was upstairs the wife decided to take a look at my phone and found the text messages a female friend and i had been sending back and forth. both said friend and i had been going back and forth talking and flirting and this where said that should not be and pictures that should not have been exchanged were i wont go into detail on them because it’s not important other than it was wrong. well any way i stepped back down stairs for coffee or food a short while later and the wife was crying and confronted me about it. i said i was sorry which i truly was and still am and i proceeded to tell her that i was going to sever all ties with said female friend which i did, at which point the wife said if we were to stay together that we would need to seek counseling which i agreed to. any way that was the end of it for that day. a days or two later things look like their starting to look better between us and i head off to work well about two hours prior to the end of my shift i take a look on Facebook and see that she has posted a comment about having made her choice, i proceed to send her a message to ask what her choice was about and it is at this point that she tells me in a text message that she wants a divorce. to say that i had a break down is a understatment, i was distraught and didn’t know what to do so i told my supervisor what was going on and proceeded to talk to me in an attempt to calm me down well frankly it didn’t really work. i got off shift and proceeded to drive home primarily on autopilot not really seeing or noticing anything that was going on around me. i got home and asked her what was going on and she told me that she wanted a divorce and that she wanted to move away as soon as possible. i was still distraught at this point, i was practically begging and pleading for her to change her mind to give me a chance to try to get the help i need for preexisting issues i have needless to say it did me no good and she was still adamant that she wants our marriage to be over and she went to bed shortly after. the next day went pretty much the same except i was put on platoon duty for the day so i could go talk to the chaplain and make appointments to see a shrink. i got home that night and again asked her if there was anyway we could try counseling to try to work things out but she would still have nothing to do with it. this is also the point where i find out she has all ready made arrangements to move and that she wasnt only going to move but she was going to move in with my replacement. at this point i am not in a good mental state and things are very rough im still in shock and scared and all kinds of fucked up in the head. well now its several days later and well things have not change she has spoken to a lawyer and begun the divorce proceedings and has paper work being drawn up, we are still living in the same house due to the fact that im still pretty much the new guy here in my unit so i don’t really have any friends or anyone i could go stay with. to say this is rough is an understatement, yes we are being civil to each other but we are pretty much avoiding each other and staying in our separate areas of the house.

till next update

vacation goodness

January 15, 2010

ahh the fabled vacation or leave for those military types. yes i am currently on R&R leave half way through this cap shoot of a deployment and well im fucking loving it. i havnt done one thing productive since i got in on sunday and i just love it, though i have bought a ps3 and a 46 inch flat screen tv which should be here to day. 46 in tv ftw!! other wise its been fairly uneventful thankfuly but i am enjoying the time off i sure as hell needed it

christmas bloody fucking christmas

December 25, 2009

well here i sit folks once again eating my breakfast and playing world of warcraft because unlike much of the military this is not my holiday. how so you ask i am neither Catholic or christian, so i refuse to celebrate the birth of a prophet i do not believe ever existed. but other than that. it is a holiday for everyone else and a day off for me so thats a good thing right?, well not so much this morning. this morning i awoke the the sound of a loud explosion, yes one of there muslim terrorist fuck heads decided it would be nice of him to help celebrate christmas by shooting a rocket or a mortor and trying to kill some of us non beleavers. how nice of him it sure as hell got me out of bed and on my way to a cement bunker which i really appreciated the thought since i so wanted to spend an hour this morning in the company of the immature fuck wads i server with in my unit.

yeah if you cant tell from my previous little rant there. its christmas morning here in iraq and well we had a mortor or a rocket i dont know which shot at us. thankfully no one was hurt. but this happer roughly around reveille time so it was eraly and i was still asleep when it hit.

what else to tell all you wonder full people out there. i will be going home to the states here in the next couple weeks for some R&R which i am grateful for because im really starting to get burned out here. my patience and temper are starting to wear real thin especialy around the hollidays with so many bad memories from the last 10 or so years, ontop of being deployed again for the.

i know i dont post often and when i do im usualy bitching and moaning about somethin im sorry for it but well thats just how i am theres very little that seem to catch my attention latly or that i find interesting so all i realy have to say is when im complaining hopefully this will change after some R&R but who knows any way

i hope every one has a merry christmas and a happy new year

musings

December 4, 2009

allright folks this is going to be all over he place because well i dont feeling like doing seperate posts for all of these to just fucking deal with it.

1. found this over at the munchkin wrangler: 90 year old vet of 3 count them 3 wars told to take down his flagpole by the local home owners association because it is not ascetically pleasing (i should mention this man is a medal of honor recipient) http://www2.timesdispatch.com/rtd/news/local/article/POLEGAT02_20091202-091201/309031/P0/ . me personaly i think it is a travisty that there all these little vest pocket dictators out there who think that flying old glory is not aesthetically pleasing, how can you walk by some ones home and see old glory out there flying in the breeze and not feel a since of pride. oh wait i know its because this countrie is now ran by a bunch of liberal loonies who believe being patriotic is a capitol crime.

2. over the last couple weeks i had my home “broke into” and my xbox and some other electronics stolen needless to say this upsets me. i have a hunch on who it was but no proof of it. if i ever find out who it was i plan on taking a sledge hammer to there hand so they are mangled and useless and everyone they encounter there after know they are a thief.

3. well thats all for now dont feel like saying anything else so deal with it

me on me

November 17, 2009

all right folks todays a new day i haven’t put up any pearls of wisdom in a few days so here goes. ive been on active duty in be it either the marine corps or the army for well the better part of a decade now going on 7 years. to put things in a light that every one can understand i started out my military career in the marines back in 2002 served my time there until 2007 yes for the mathematically challenged like myself that is 5 year, when it came time to shit or get off the pot i went to the  re-enlistment folks to see what my options were and well they were not good for me as i hated my job. i was a mechanic and completely hated what i was doing so one of the things i wanted to stay in as an mos reclassification. well they said aint going to happen bub only way that could happen was to go into and even smaller more high need mos and there was only one at the time eod, yeah as you can see i did not take it since well i dont like the idea of going out every day with the plan of getting blown up so i got out at the rank of corporal. i did about 4 months of hte civillian thing and well there just are no jobs out there, and even fewer for us uneducated baby killers. every interview i went to the people askin me the question would look at me like i had grown a second or thrid head when they would ask me what my prior work experience was and i told them military with deployment to iraq. so needless to say this sort of gave me he vibe that in todays day and age us soldiers and vets are not looked upon to well by the highering masses. after about 4 months of this i went and spoke to the army recruiters because i knew what the marines would say and well i wasnt taking a rank or pay cut to come back in. well the army recruiters said they would see what they could do for me after i gave them my speech on what they could do to themselves after they said i would have to go back through boot camp that was actually a rather funny moment too had the ncoic of the recruiting station   in stitches because he had never seen anyone lay it out to one of his recruiters like that before. well they did there thing and got the paper work going and told me i pretty much had my pick of the field as far as jobs went which was good for me since it allowed me to choose what i had wanted all along and that is military police, been doing that for about 2 years now aint to bad for the most part the unit im in blows but what can ya do. hate the field and deployment side of the house but when we are actually playing  “leo’s” while in garrison i love my job its the kind of thing ive always wanted to do help people and fuck up the bad guys. this has for the first time in my life actualy given me some direction on where i want to go and do with myself after i finaly leave the military.
