Best Buy Smash Fest - June 11th, 2014 - Arlington, TX
I never shared these!! This was such an amazing afternoon. I drove like an hour and half for it. I got there several hours before it was supposed to start. I immediately hit it off with some fellow nerds. Before long we were right at the front of the line. Really sucked for everyone else though because the line got ridiculously long. For anyone that went to one of these you know what I mean. The line stretched throughout the whole store.
Anyway, one group of chill-ass vidya bros in front of me, one right behind me. Our shared love for Smash Bros. was the coolest thing. All the sudden, here’s these nerds I’ve never met in my life, and we’re talking and laughing like we’ve been friends forever. I’ll probably never see any of them again but it was an awesome experience. Its good to be reminded that there really are so many other people out there that accept you and are like you. Especially when you grow up in a backwater Texas town in which growing up to be anything but an oilfield worker or church regular means disappointing your heritage.
I won the second match as Killager. That Final Smash at the last 10 seconds got all three of them. We cheered.
Also in the bottom picture the box says “NESS” to the left of Player 1’s Little Mac. 2spoopy.

My life is video games. Seriously, all I’ve been doing for the last month is playing games on my backlog. Smash Bros 3DS is so close. The hype is real. I need a shower.
These last two weeks have been European Extreme mode for me. I got a new job working at a gas station in town. But at the same time I got really sick. My allergies always whoop me about this time of year. So yeah I couldn’t start my job cos I was so sick and miserable. Then I got better and started my job. Basically worked this entire last week; 8 and 10 hour shifts. Its really difficult but I know it’ll get better with time. Just a lot of unlucky crap has been happening involving all that sort of thing. It gets really overbearing.
Thankfully school is going well and I’ll be getting my grant money on Monday. Too bad it’s all going into my car repairs. Y’know, that piece of shit that’s been giving me infinite frustrations this whole year. It’ll be good to get it fixed though. Although it would be so much better to get a laptop that actually works and an iPod Classic. Car parts and repair costs will very likely take up all my check. Funny the way these things balance out.
I’m having a goddang blast playing by myself with just five characters on one stage. I might actually reach a new plane of existence when the full version comes out.
I’m covering Bon Iver/Justin Vernon’s recent song Heavenly Father. Here’s a quick demo I made for you guys. Full song will have guitar, mandolin, and probably distorted beatboxing or something like that lol
Btw if you haven’t watched Wish I Was Here you are missing out on the movie of the year
March 2013, my bedroom in Lakeland, FL. Recorded at a time when I was disparaged and staying up all night. It took a long time to get out of that. By far my favorite recording I’ve made so far? Maybe. I’m proud of it, at least.

I’ve gone and deleted every single post on this blog. “Over 9000” never had such weight as an actual number. I’ve been awake since 3AM, but I love being up this early.
I’m moving on to a new place in my life. I’m no longer plagued by the sadness of the years prior to now. Life isn’t easy, but it isn’t terrible either. I still have a flip phone. I’m still pretty much “off the grid.” I want to treat this blog more like a journal instead of empty thoughts being shot off into space. Its about time I get my stuff together. I’ve done well this year, though I’m poor in wealth. My only prayer is that I can find the wherewithal to put forth my strongest effort in everything that I do.
For all my teenage darkness, the sun still rises. Some cardinals are flying about in the tree out the window.
