  1. hmm, things i might like this christmas? let's see...


    action, mystery, comedy (especially funny manga). favorites are batman, superman, spiderman, wolverine, and anything starwars (have all of kotor and loooove it)

    video games

    while i do have most of the consoles, including a ps4, lately i've been gaming mostly on my phone and tablet. (rymdkapsel is so friggin' addicting) i've been keeping up with the humble bundles but if there's some underrated android or ios gem you think i'd enjoy...


    i love anything fantasy and sci-fi (been wanting to read a good star wars book) but i just enjoy good stories. these and these are some of my books, to get an idea


    while i usually go to fruit when i want something sweet, i do enjoy me some sweetarts, nerds, bottlecaps, spree, shockers...pretty much anything wonka. also love me some peanut butter candy including reeses cups and pieces, pb m&ms, etc.

    guitar stuff

    i go through guitar picks like crazy so more of those would be nice. i use dunlop tortex blues (1mm) or greens (.88m)

  2. i reeeeally recommend this card if it's within your budget. you'll easily be getting performance that is greater than an xbox one or a ps4. plus, graphics cards these days are so friggin HUGE that you have to get bigger cases to fit them in, but this one is so tiny and powerful. it's more powerful than my current card and costs about $200 less than i paid for mine. gonna get a couple of these myself to run in sli. check out these benchmarks. it was able to run assassin's creed 3 at 1080p with the highest settings at an average 60fps, and crysis 3 at highest settings (which looks friggin amazing) at an average 43 fps (which is still plenty better than last gen's 30 fps consoles). you should def look into it

  3. double dragon and afterburner on the sms, and punch-out on the nes are the earliest vgm memories i have, but it wasnt until street fighter 2 and turtles in time on the snes that i really started paying attention. in my head i would imagine the music being played by real instruments and would often learn the songs myself on piano and violin. it's kind of how i started to train my ears, i guess

  4. i have this app on my phone that counts your step using the gyroscope and gps. it starts over every day and keeps track so you can check your progress. you can set a goal like 5,000 steps a day, reach it, then just keep increasing. i think the recommended goal is 10,000 steps which is, depending on lots of things, around 5 miles. you'd be surprised how easy it is to reach this goal just by parking further away from stores and things like that.
