The Meek shall MARCH ONWARD!

Why don't they have a march of the meek card for Magic? All creatures with converted mana cost 2 or less get +2/+0. 'Twould be an interesting card. Probably not an enchantment, although I wouldn't be against it as one. I like enchantments. When the hell am I going to do that Auratog deck, huh? Or that really cool thing that does the thing? Yeah. That would be neat.

I feel like stabbing someone. Someone named Jesse. But most of you don't know who that is, so...
Time for chickyicken, I suppose.

You're so dreamy, you're so sweet, swept completely off my feet

d00d, this Planetarium game thingy is the weirdest bit of online cool I've found in awhile. if you don't mind your brain exploding... yeah, that's the ticket.
I got randomly re-interested in text-based adventuring like... a day or two ago. You can notice the link to the Baf's guide down there on the side (Which I should have had there anyway, it's a link to infinite brain-destroying fun) to signify this development. I also linked to the previous linkthingy down there so as to... link it better. Linky.

But seriously, I think I might go down to Plainswalkers and see if I can't like... actually play someone down there with my stupid. No, I lied, I don't have the kinda initiative to do that. Thems be people I don't know well! I could die with guns! Or embarrassment! Best to just sit here and read the JTHM. Mew.

And then there was an end to the blogging for today.

People have scary fantasies, and VCL proves it.

Seriously, some of the stuff on there... *sighs*

An earthworm attacked me last night. It was scary. It said "Doom" alot.

I got my Johnny the Homocidal Maniac book in. Mom got it for me, but I hope she never looks inside, as she will think I'm all goth and depressed all the time. Not that I'm not. I just am when I feel like it. And I'm not very good at it.

Natalie gets her french guy in today. I hope they have a good time. From what she was telling me, they might have sucked the trip all up for the french students. I hope someone uses their brain and makes it work right. I also hope Natalie doesn't die due to homework stress whilst this is going on.

I have a certian friend, a she photographer...

Well, it's offical. Butt Baby seriously is the most frightening thing ever to be put on the DVD medium.

My CARD Revolution save file corrupted. I lost all my cards. This caused me to weep. It's a good thing I did not have the Samba Maracas, otherwise I probably would have committed seppuku.

In other news, my deck is hardcore awesome. I made a deck. It be type 2 legal. It looks a bit like this:
19 Plains
4 Secluded Steppes
3 Coretappers
4 Noble Templars
2 Blessed Reversal
4 Force Bubble
3 Healing Salve
3 Holy Day
4 Isochron Scepter
4 Jinxed Choker
4 Raise the Alarm
2 Ritual of Restoration
4 Sunbeam Spellbombs

It contains large amounts of "t3h 4w3$0m3!" Huzzah!

I don't have a joystick, or a backlit LCD.

I should make like... a CARDRevolution.org or something. With hardcore Card Revolution... stuffs.
It's a shame I have no ability AND no motivation for stuff like that. Oh well.

I learned Samba Maracas kinda suck, so I don't want them as bad anymore. Now I desire Chamelon Scythes.
Two posts in one day. I am the suck.

Huzzah! Freezepop hath arrived!

The new Freezepop CD is here! Yay! Too bad I haven't had much time to really listen through it. But it's good that I have it. Yes. Very good indeeeeeeed.

Someone gave me some random Unglued commons in the card shop today. I was kinda embarrassed. Josh offered to look stuff up for me. I was kinda embarrassed. I don't like taking things like that from people, especially when I just kinda casually mention that I like them. Cause I mean, it's not like that's why I said it. Miyah.

Natalie is very late... I wonder if everything is okay... second line is busy... hm... well, hopefully she's out having fun with Angie.

Some of my C.A.R.D. Revolution Taunts:
I'm like a ninja, only I play cards.
OMG, Am I playing cards? WTF?LOL!!!!1
Diamonds is trump. It's your lead.
Prepare to face t3h $|_|ck!!!!!!!!!!!
I think we should just be enemies.

Moon Sammy, won't you come back strummin'?

Birthday tommorow. I'm 20.
SCARY!!!!!!!! Miyah.

I got a keyboard for my GC, so now I can actually chat with the people I'm playing the Card Revolution with, and this has enhanced my playing immensely, because I have to talk when I play something like that. Plus, there's enough downtime in a card game to have actually cool conversations. Huzzah. But the thing that pisses me off is that some of the punctuation does not work the way it should. The carrot ( the ^ in my ^_^) is not affixed to shift 6 and I can't find it anywhere on the keyboard. Also, ' is connected with shift 7 instead of where it damn well should be on the keyboard. The ' button makes a @ instead. It's really damn annoying.

What should I get with my birthday cash? I need to renew my Waldenbooks card... and I'm going to buy some of those metal deckboxes at Plainswalkers... but other than that? I dunno. I should really just save it. Yeah... I think I will... then I'll have some buffer for when I gots to buy Wario Ware: Mega Partygame$. And maybe Resident Evil: Outbreak. MAYBE. I don't know if I want to throw down the cash for the Network adapter. I want to stay focused on the Card Revolution as I really put some money into it.
I want some of the Button Brains button men. This is a random statement, but true. They're insanely dorky and I love the Konstant die.

With love,
Matthew "Alex" Long

Well, the amount of LAN was actually fairly low...

So, LAN party aftermath. There seriously wasn't much LAN. Oh well, 'twas fun. Droid might put up some of the stupid movies I made with his camera over on his blogthing, so check it out if you're insanely bored.

Also, yesterday, I went down to the local game shop place and played in a draft tourney they were having there. Victoly was mine!
Okay, so technically I got to the championship and the guy was really tired and had to drive to St. Louis so we just decided that we'd split the prizes for first and second and called it a draw. So I tied for first. But ye gods, I still was undefeated. Who knew stupid little fliers could kick so much ass? ^_^ I got 15 bucks in whatever singles I wanted. I let Jonathan pick out most because I could never pick out that many in one sitting. But I got me another Krark's Thumb for my hardcore lucky luck deck. And I picked up some Zur's Weirding because it's all awesome and stuff... I should make a deck that just makes a chaos or team game tons more interesting and nothing else, with that as one of the main cards in it. Heehee... ^_^
In any case, next time Plainswalkers does a limited tourney, I'm all over it. Oh. Yeah.
With love,
Matthew "Alex" Long

When the chips are down, and there's no one around, Kick ass.

I have decided that if some crazed mad scientist-type person ever created a gun that turned the people it shot into button me, and I was shot with it, my recipe would be 1 t1 k1 k2 q10/20 . Oh yeah. A one-sided die, a one-sided trip die, a one-sided Konstant die, a two-sided Konstant die, and a queer option die, either 10 or 20 sided.
Then again, if Jonathan was hit with a similar ray that turned people into T-shirts, he'd turn into this.

There's a draft tourney at Plainswalker's this weekend. I gotta convince someone to come with me, cause I wanna go but I can't go by myself because I'd be too nervous because other gamers scare me sometimes. But it's limited, and I love limited, and I need all the limited practice I can get if I'm going to go to Gencon this summer. Cause all I'm going to do is limited magic drafts and the BRAWL and Button Men tourneys. I will lose at all of them. But damn, it'll rokk. (This is, of course, assuming that I'll have money to do this. But eh, it's too awesome for me to not have money! *falls over*)

30-sided die are expensive.

All this gamin' makes me really want to do something with my silly super-hero idea, too. He'd be able to gank luck from people by touching them. So he touches a bad guy, and like for a couple minutes he gains Stormtrooper Aim, or keeps tripping. Meanwhile, the superhero would like, be able to jump off a building and land in a convienently placed truck full of pillows for the same span of time because of the extra luck. He'd probably be a professional gambler in his secret identity, and he'd like, tap people's shoes by accident under the table to take their luck and make a profit. I also like the idea of him getting to talk to Lady Luck, or working for Lady Luck. In any case, it would be an interesting character which I should develop more.

And that's it. Until then, keep rolling your 1-sided Ornery Time and Space Die like a whore.
With love,
Matthew "Alex" Long

1-sided Warrior Konstant Time and Space Die

One more test before the break of spring. Boing.

Thus I am listening to many a jazz recording for my jazz test. Funkay.

Button Men r0x0rs. So do Punch Cards. So does, well, Cheapass games in general. Hard. Core.
But seriously, I want more Punch Cards, it's such a stupidfun idea.

I gotta clean up this room today, methinks, so we can party harty over here on Saturday. LANtastic. I'm sure Droid will have mucho coverage in video or whatever form over on his blog, so be sure to check it out. Or not.

I know this will last forever. You Duct-taped my heart back together.

I keep listening to the Fancy Ultra*Fresh sampler track. Holy crap. It's pure synthpoppy goodness. I need the CD... but they haven't reported that they've got it back from the CD maker person yet, so I know my pre-order isn't going to randomly appear in my mailbox today... oh well.

"I am not Spy Hunter, Galaga or Burger Time. Don't look here for Frogger. Dig Dug ain't no friend of mine. Don't ask me, you'll cross the line. Don't play with me. I'm not your toy. Can't you see? I am not your Gameboy!"

Crazy Good Burger with Insane Dressings Combo Meal

So I'm playing Hardcore Button Men. I'll throw a link for Button Men Online down on the side whenever I get unlazy, cause you all should play. In any case, it is causing me to purchase large amounts of Cheapass Games goodness. Unexploded Cow shall be mine, as well as some button men and many of the hip pocket awesome games. And some extra BRAWL action.
I'm done now.

Birthday Things...

Here is a tentative list of birthday things for my birthday... things.

Cardcaptor Sakura boxed set vol. 1.
Gloomcookie anthologies 1 and 2.
Stuff from Thinkgeek: w00t Tshirt, Caffeine Tshirt, One of those spiffy bracelets, And Bawls.
Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life for me Gamecube
From the wonderful island of England, Falling out of Cars, Needle in the Groove, And the Needle in the Groove CD.

A Place where I could participate in Friday Night Magic would be nice, as well as help on getting DCI Certified Would also be nice, but isn't really something I could hope for for my birthday.

That's all I got for now... I only write this list because I'm at a loss as to what to tell my mother when she asks me what I want for my brithday.
With love,
Matthew "Alex" Long
