i managed to break this little nutang helper from his contract with nutang, and now he works for me. his name is jump-for-joya. he manages this site. all complaints and other inquiries should be directed to him.
he thanks you for your cooperation.

is it wrong if i just want to take the rest of the day off, go home, and play hours of assassin's creed?
yes, i'm a few years late on that game. but it's awesome. i heard mixed reviews, so i didn't end up getting it until it was available on xbox live's games on demand.
if you want to know what i'll be doing right after i get off work, i'll be on my couch, killing templars during the crusades.

virgin mobile free fest.
first of all, it's an entirely free admission concert. you have to either be lucky as hell to get the tickets, or do some community service. i was lucky as hell. my friend got two tickets, and i was the one that got to go with her!
band line-up (at least the ones i knew): taking back sunday, jet, the bravery, weezer, blink 182.
i was a bit disappointed with taking back sunday, as they were playing a bunch of new songs, and i wasn't even aware they came out with a cd that was newer than louder now. we left about halfway through.
i didn't see jet. i instead walked around. i regret nothing.
the bravery was surprisingly righteous. i am definitely investing in their cd, and i will invest in their new one when it comes out in november.
weezer was unbelievable. they are just so good live. they played some classics (my name is jonas, say it ain't so, buddy holly, sweater song) as well as some newbies that i barely cared for, but their performance was not on a chain. in fact it was off the chain. they even opened with war pigs, and closed with should i stay or should i go.
blink 182 goes without saying. they were hilarious, and fantastic. it's as if they never split up. they played more songs from their self-titled album than i would've liked, but it's their choice. plus, they still played some good'ns (dammit, all the small things feelin' this) and topped it off with some really awesome ones (anthem part 2, reckless abandon, josie, carousel, not now, stay together for the kids).
needless to say, it was an exciting day. my love for blink has returned, and it's here to stay. huzzah!

anyone else watch dexter? if you don't, then you are severely missing out.
...no, not dexter's laboratory. dexter is a show about a forensic scientist that works for the miami police department. he is also a serial killer. but, he kills bad guys.
season 3 just came out on dvd, and i believe season 4 starts next month. if you haven't watched the show, immediately go out and buy the first three seasons, blindly. or, if you have netflix, the first two seasons are in the instant queue.
do it. DO it.
i haven't seen all of season 3 yet, but i am in the process of watching it. so far, so f'in' good.

so today one of my coworkers asked me to get them some soup from the hot food bar at the grocery store across the street. they gave me three dollars. so i went and got the soup, and when i got to the cashier, it was interesting that the container of soup totaled exactly three dollars. that was pretty strange.
for the first time, my bank has requested that every branch in every region in every state fill a quota for checking accounts. it's all part of this big promo where you can get some cash for opening an account. we normally open 17 checking accounts a month, and we are the busiest branch in the whole company. now, we are being asked to open 31 a month. are they NUTS?
people these days hate bankers, and think that they are getting all of their money. well let's get something straight: i'm not a high roller. i'm not one of those dumbass CEOs that decides that they will take a bajillion dollar bonus this year because they are special. if people are already skewed about banks, and bankers, then how do they expect us to double productivity?
a tumbleweed might as well waltz by my office door. this place has been dead for months. we're screwed.

i think it's hilarious that if you have no friends on nutang, then in place of their avatars, it says "I have no friends." dave should add a crying emoticon.
i think i'm going to work on a new layout for my page when i get home tonight. i don't know where i can put my graphics online once i design them. help?

so i'm falling a bit behind schedule of my leisure activities. i haven't had much time to do a vlog about my trip to colorado, and i am not sure when i am going to have a chance to do it.
i also haven't been animating at all lately... sucks. all work and no play makes me a dull boy.
i'm at work right now, and i'm probably breaking company policy by blogging during work hours, but websense isn't smart enough to block nutang yet. suckers.
i worked a concert at rash field in baltimore. i already know what you're thinking, and you're right; there couldn't be a worse name for a place where an event is held. rash field. i got one just thinking about it.
there were some pretty shitty bands there, bands like vs. the earth, flipside, and the bridge. yeah, they all sucked. okay, vs. the earth didn't suck, but i guess that since they played first, the last two acts made them look like they were part of this big cluster of awful. vs. the earth should've played last.
flipside is this awful cover band that likes to ruin songs. everytime they started one, i was like "oh, i love this song!" and as soon as the singer started scratching fingernails on his vocal chord chalkboard, i wanted to vomit.
we did have an advertising rep there that was very nice. he bought me and the n-dub crew drinks. i asked for a jack and coke, and i ended up getting this disgusting drink that end up mostly being whiskey. proportion control, people, come on. i don't care if you're a temp bartender. jesus... i felt sick after half a sip. not the ad rep's fault though. he was a really cool guy.
i also tried a guinness draft for the first time yesterday. have you ever seen those commercials or movies where two lovers run toward each other and then embrace? that was me to this beer. and i'm not a big beer drinker. i actually enjoyed the taste all the way to the bottom of the glass. i don't care what alcohol content it has (it's deceivingly low). it's good.
i also got sushi with bretch. there was a place called edo sushi a few doors down from tir na nog (the irish bar we stopped by). i guess i should ellaborate more on what i did yesterday, or at least give a slight background. i'm jumping around here.
the bank that i work for is doing this huge ad campaign because we're finally able to offer people money for opening an account with us. i got to leave work early yesterday to go to the concert we were sponsoring. there were torrential downpours, so before we could set up our tiny ass booth, four of us walked around the baltimore harbor for a bit. that's when we went to tir na nog, and edo sushi, and then the concert with the ad rep, shitty drinks, and mediocre music.
this blog is a mess. i don't care.
