New shtuff.

New Albums:

  • Coheed and Cambria – In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth Volume 3 (2003)
  • Franz Ferdinand – You Could Have It So Much Better (2005)
  • The All-American Rejects – Move Along (2005)
  • The Killers – Hot Fuss (2004)

I also downloaded something by The Pretenders. It turned out to be from 1990 and it just scares me. I think I’ll keep it just because I don’t know what else to do with scary music. I’ll listen to all of this stuff eventually and see what I think about it.

Getting the following albums right now:

  • Coheed and Cambria – Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One from Fear Through the Eyes of Madness
  • Jet – Get Born [Two-Disc Import] (2005)
  • Modest Mouse – Good News for People Who Love Bad News (2004)

Today I worked through an entire PSAT practice test. I got a 225 this time, a lot better than what I was getting earlier. I have to work a little more carefully on the Writing Section and I need to make sure that I get a perfect score on the Math Section on the real test day. I’m ready for this.

I started playing Battlefield 2. Ever since buying the game, I haven’t touched it at all. Justin’s played it for over 30 hours already. We’ve hit the Sergeant rank, 3 unlocks. I suck at the game and just manage to get myself killed in all sorts of humiliating ways. I do admit it’s more fun than Counter-Strike: Source because of how varied gameplay is. I think I’ve killed myself 5 times from jumping off of the Kubra Dam and forgetting to open up my parachute in time. Whoops.

Got a call from Mediaplex today. The Sennheiser HD212 Pro headphones that I ordered will take a while to get here. It’s alright, it’s not something that I need to have immediately. I’m going to concentrate more on schoolwork.

Mini-MUN at ISKL is coming up as well. It’ll run from Friday, October 14th to Saturday, October 15th. I’m going to have to get over that shaky legged feeling that I always get when I step up to talk. I’ll just talk slowly. That usually works.

The one thing that I can’t stand about MUN is the use of the third person point of view at all times. “The delegate of PNG believes that…”, “The delegate merely stated that…”, “The delegate would like to ask the delegate of x…”. Christ. Can’t we just say I? No, because we have to keep discussion diplomatic and keep high register throughout our speeches. I vote for medieval weapons to be used at all times in the General Assembly. That should spice things up. With lances and blackjacks, you never know who’s going to die next when they say something wrong.

Played Frantix on my PSP. A little repetitive but it’s fun to solve those crazy puzzles. I’ll write up a PSP review or two when I have the time to do it. Or when I feel like it.

Keep The Share Forum alive, children.
