Games to movies

posted in: blog, Games | 1

So a few games are being adapted to movies , we all knon that hitman was being adapted into a movie , and frankly. it looked really shit.

The movie producers seemt o be giving it another go and are making movie adaptations of the rather awesome game ‘Max Payne’ (and speaking of , where the hell is Max Payne 3) , The confirmed actor to play Max is… Mark Wahlberg , know who he is? because i sure don’t. However this is what he looks like.

In other game to movie news.
The upcoming game ‘Kane and Lynch : Dead men’
is also being made into a movie. Cant remember who the 2nd guy was , but i know that one of the actors is going to be Bruce (Yippikiyay) Willis… hmm
[edit : L33tfella_H tells me the 2nd guy is ‘Billy Bob Thornton’]

Super bonus extra feature! : – Staged or not? you decide. – Luckiest Halo 3 Kill ever
I do love how they were able to recap and review what the hell killed them. Proof that the halo 3 camera thing is awesome.

The Comments have now been fixed , i never really messed around with the settings before but have done so now. It was previously set to only registered users can comment , now it is set to allow anybody to comment , provided they have had 1 comment previously moderated. Ergo. Comment away!

This is quite possibly the best , most hyphy song ever. – kudos to Scootahboi123 (aka. [BoYc3] ) for letting me hear the original for the first time on his TF2 video.
Linky to the song : Scooter : The Question is What is the Question? (Flip & Fill Remix)

Drawing up Data Flow Diagrams and Entity Relationship diagrams for ICT fucking fails so hard.

4. – Storytime
So im at work , doing my thing. Im doing drinks runs for the bar and have to bring a bottle of wine to a table of foreigners (they look like they’re from Europe somewhere , not sure where though. We’ll pretend they’re Estonians , because everyone knows they’re weird.)
So im opening the bottle with my Cockscrew Corkscrew right and then…
I glance upwards to be greeted with one of them clutching a camera pointed at me.
T..they just took a picture of me opening a wine bottle =/
Im somewhat mortified that they would want me in their holiday pictures but whatever , i pour out the wine. However afterwards the woman calls me over. . .
“Could you.. uh.. get bottle .. for camera?”
I am then forced into posing for a picture where im holding a wine bottle over this womans glass like im some form of slave. Great.
Tips? None of course.

Due to my family pc breaking down and such , i bought a few bits and bobs for my pc.
An Athlon 6000+ CPU
2gb Kingston PC6400 Ram (2x1gb)
Zalman CNPS 9700 CPU Cooler
And an Antec P182 Case SCPR edition
– Pretty pricey i guess , but its only a few weeks wages and the case is supposed to be pretty damn beastly.

Worlds worst employee award

posted in: blog, rant, work | 0

So recently my workplace has recruited some new employees due to being short of staff , as you may have already sussed out via the title , they are all fucking useless goddamned liabilities.

For those who are not aware , my job (and consequently , theirs) is to go around and pick up customers used plates / cutlery / glasses and take it to the kitchen , take orders ,bring out drinks from the bar or wipe down tables and set cutlery on them. Its not the hardest job in the world , in my opinion anyway , of course… it would appear that not everyone sees things the same way I do

I’d like to mention at this point that I do not actually know any of their names although I have personally given them all nicknames in my head. Now , on to the contenders.

‘Plain useless’

Equipped with quite possibly the most stereotypical look of an early twenties Chinese girl , she is – as the nickname suggests , plain fucking useless. She excels at INTENSE tasks such as wiping tables , which is rather oddly all I saw her doing in the space of a 5 and a half hour shift.

Obviously , she also does not know any English so I cant even bitch at her to do things.

At one point during the night I was with her and we had to set a table for 11 people , now the table already had been set up for 10 people (long table , 5×1 with 2 per table) and had an extra chair at the end of the table, I turned to useless. “eleven people.” I spoke slooooowwwllyy in hope her small brain would be able to comprehend. She nods. Huzzah! Perhaps she’s not so useless after all! I set up the table by myself and she stands there staring into space. With the last set of cutlery in my hand to place at the empty chair at the end of the table I get called away to do something which requires slightly more skill , I pass the cutlery to useless and point to the end of the table where the empty chair is and walk off.
Minute later she returns to me , cutlery still in hand.
“i…uh…there is already two” she says , pointing at the 2 sets of cutlery set up… on a table surrounded by 3 chairs.
I resist the urge to headbutt her and instead put the cutlery down myself.
Useless bitch.

‘Period pain girl’

Aptly named because she always has a grimace on her face.
I shit you not. Her face is actually moulded into the typical internet DEE COLON face D: , albeit with slightly more teeth showing on the top side.
Now… I don’t smile much admittantly , but a fucking D: ?

There are a few times when one is allowed to make that sort of face for periods of longer than half an hour.

1. Mike Tyson just uppercutted you in the stomach
2. You just got stabbed , and Mike Tyson uppercutted you in the stomach.

Worth noting that she is also pretty damn useless , although not as useless as ‘useless’ documented above or as useless as…

‘Princess’ (Chinese Paris Hilton)

You may consider yourself to be in the wrong line of work if you’re allergic to animals and find yourself as a zookeeper. Quite similar to being afraid of leftover food where your job practically revolves around picking up plates of other peoples food.

Anyone who has been to where I work will have seen that the staff who work there will easily take about 8 plates at a time , and balance them on their hands , wrists , arms, stomachs , shoulders etc .(for example today I saw somebody balance coins on the back of their hand whilst taking drinks to the bar , that was extreme.) Not princess of course. Who uses a full two hands per one plate , holding it firmly by the sides and walking with her arms outstretched as far as she can. Upon reaching the kitchen and dropping off the plates , she quickly takes out a tissue and thoroughly (I mean it.) wipes down her hands , god forbid any molecules of food be on her at any time.

Actual usefulness seems limited of course , as she can’t sweep worth shit either , and sweeping is hardly the most difficult thing in the world.
