antoj: (disgust)
you guys.

last night i was trying to play MOAR jak x because it's my life suddenly and like the R2 button (THE TURBO BOOST BUTTON IN THE GAME) was getting stuck to the point where it was ruining my races because my character would be like IDK HOW TO TURBO LOOLOLLOOLOLOL and then everyone and their dog would pass me and it was lame in a bun.

AND THEN I WAS LIKE!!!!1 IM GONNA OPEN THIS CONTROLLER AND CLEAN THE BUTTONS. THEN IT WONT STICK ANYMOAR.

so i opened it up and it was the most disgusting inside.

i am never buying another used controller ever. :'c I usually buy my stuff new but I was late to the ps2 land and I got it used at Gamestop like a year ago I guess. The dust and grime inside the controller was nothing like I'd seen. I don't know if they rolled the thing in dirt at some point or not??

i mean look at these, and how it just gets worse:
first glance inside. note the dust on the cord inside the controller.
gross analogue stick
THE GROSSEST BUTTON I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. q-tips would hardly pull the grime off that X button. I just..... HOW DO YOU EVEN MANAGE TO GET THIS MUCH SHIT CAKED INSIDE YOUR CONTROLLER!?

the most disgusting thing about this is that i realized i had been actually PLAYING GAMES WITH THIS MONSTER for this long without realizing how gross it was inside.

it took nearly 20 q-tips and almost 2 hours to clean that controller.

and if it doesn't fix my button sticking issues in Jak X I'm just gonna throw it against a wall.

to vita or not to vita

I got over half the amazon credits I need in order to convince myself its ok to buy a playstation vita. i'm so excited you guys. i heard you can take screen shots and then you can twitter it right from the handheld itself.....without even having to exit the game.

i will just casually spam my twitter with all these hilarious derp things i do in games on my vita. i feel sorry for everyone who follows me on twitter

did i mention i already bought 3 games for it? .......oh. yeah I did. :'D Amazon is doing a buy 2 get 1 free sale, and two of the games I already planned to buy were there, so I pretty much just got a free game. (picked out Uncharted, Lumines and Rayman: Origins, for the record)

oh except one thing.

my car.

my car is doing something funky.

yeaaaaaaa. so i gotta take it into the shop tomorrow morning at way-too-early am and then HOPE AND WISH that it isn't a billion dollars to fix. but with the car reeking of gasoline when i turn it on, i'm not feeling too good about it because if it is, count me into more debt and also no vita. :'c i'll just have to admire the pretty games. LOL.

this is about my luck though. i bet medical issues are going to come up now too, or they'll wait until the day i open my vita to happen and then i'll regret buying it. i should just stop buying things because this always happens
antoj: (WTF)
so like

that inFAMOUS 2 art book i have been slowly (but surely) saving pay pal monies for by selling things and doing commissions for...you know the one, right.

the other day i found out via my collector forum that the shipping on these books from this company is $100 to the US. I just about shat my pants and went to check for myself and sure enough, it is $100.

the forum also said that "australia is only $10 shipping :D" and i was like BUT WHY AUSTRALIA IS ALWAYS MORE WTH and its because the book company is ~*~in Australia~*~

i've done some poking around, via getting the weight of one of the other books the company publishes from amazon and slapping it into the australia post postage calculator.....looks like this company only sends express which is why its freaking $100.

so basically i was wondering if and when this book is announced and released if i could get an Australia middle-man for it. I don't mind if shipping is a little slower, it still will probs be about $50 but $50 is not $100 so...yeah.

but i do so need me a super special infamoose artbook in my life you don't even know. the extra $100 in shipping i was not expecting and would have to crap out several dozen more commissions to afford it....but i will do it if needed bcuz i need this ok

still though who ever heard of only using express and ~*~that's it~*~ for shipping. gujhaghgjg

hmm

so i've been mentioning this on and off for a few days or w/e now BUT IT HAS FINALLY COME. tomorrow morning I whisk myself off to the land of LAX to pick up my bitches [livejournal.com profile] eyebrowaddict and [livejournal.com profile] thekayla from the airport.

Shenanigans/etc.

This also means I will be gone for approx a week and a half. IF THERE'S SOMETHING YOU WANT TO SHOW ME OR W/E leave it in the comments on this journal...or just email me. w/e.

Oh also, my AMP came today~~!!
im really freaking tired so this is the only crappy photo you get for now

It's really, really solid. It feels like it's actually made out of metal. My first thought was when I pulled it out of the box is that it feels like I could actually kill someone with it. lol. It's totally legit too, I actually found the original shipping invoice still inside the box...from Sony Computer Entertainment to G4 Media. :b

Also sad thing, the tips busted off it somehow. Not sure if the seller did it or if G4 did it... I found them....after I had accidentally thrown them away in two seperate trash cans (don't even ask) and of course they fell to the bottom.....so i dug through the entire contents of these trash cans...BUT I FOUND THEM!!!!! now i just need to find out how to put them back on...but such is a battle for another day.

yea ok that's it. it wouldn't actually /be/ one of my journals without some infamous nerding in here...you should be used to it by now

my voice is really stupid but...

antoj: (Awesome)

i made this video. also my voice is really dumb. its all super pointless though. the highlight is me making fun of the cole statue. also i had to take the entire video with one hand because i used my cell phone.

also this is the best use of the backpack.

the end!!!!

EVERYONE WITH A PSN ACCOUNT

antoj: (Angry)
hey guys if you have a psn account and you use the same password on stuff please change all your passwords now.

also if you have a credit card on file you might wanna keep a super close eye on that card.

sony just said the PSN is down because hackers stole everyone's data. like....6 days after it happened they tell us this (way 2 b on top of things, son)

ugh ugh. at least for me my expiring debit card was the only one on file (i think) and my password for my sensitive accounts isnt my psn.... but everyone else please do this /now/. I don't know how serious it is because sony once again gives out a vague statement basically saying OH MAYBE A THING HAPPENED LOL.

this is ridiculous.

not making this up btw

kind of pissed about how badly this has been handled lol.
