Journal Journal: Again? Really?

For the third time in the past 6 to 8 months I've had a fraudulent charge on my credit card. Actually it was four times, but one was only $9 and I let it slide to avoid the inconvenience of having to get a new card. Unfortunately this time it was a $50 charge to iTunes from China and I could not abide. The worst part in all of this is that it is just fucking impossible to tell which company is leaking my information. Shit, it could be a skimmer at a random gas station for all I know. Thi

This is just fucking retarded. So it's just fucking dandy to run around blowing the living shit out of anything that moves in many a video game, but having your avatar carry a gun is crossing the line? Maybe they should hire Steven Spielberg to digitally alter all the guns into walkie talkies, and instead of shooting your enemies you can just politely invite them over for a cup of tea and call it a draw.

So the HP TouchPad firesale on eBay was on December 11. Many people, including myself, had problems with the servers and failed to obtain one. Then on December 21 I get a message from eBay apologizing for the inconvenience and offering a 10% (max of $10) off coupon on my next purchase through eBay. Given that they didn't have to do anything that's a nice gesture. Unfortunately, the coupon expires December 28. What the fuck, man. I'd rather get nothing than a token gesture that expires i

Journal Journal: Finales

Homeland was pretty decent, though it kind of plateaued after the bunker scene. There were a few plot issues brought up on some forums, but nothing major in my opinion. The recollection of Brody mentioning Isa in his sleep at the end was a nice touch. The only concern I have is how the fuck is Carrie going to get back in the game? The only possibility seems to be for Saul to blackmail Estes with the missile strike, but he already tried that and backed off. I'm not sure what they're going

Gary Johnston: We're dicks! We're reckless, arrogant, stupid dicks. And the Film Actors Guild are pussies. And Kim Jong Il is an asshole. Pussies don't like dicks, because pussies get fucked by dicks. But dicks also fuck assholes: assholes that just want to shit on everything. Pussies may think they can deal with assholes their way. But the only thing that can fuck an asshole is a dick, with some balls. The problem with dicks is: they fuck too much or fuck when it isn't appropriate - and it takes a pussy to show them that. But sometimes, pussies can be so full of shit that they become assholes themselves... because pussies are an inch and half away from ass holes. I don't know much about this crazy, crazy world, but I do know this: If you don't let us fuck this asshole, we're going to have our dicks and pussies all covered in shit!

Journal Journal: movies

I saw this post on Reddit about voting for the top movies of 2011, and I've got to say 2011 was a pretty shitty year for movies. Saw the most recent incarnation of Pirates of the Caribbean; it wasn't quite dreck, but it was certainly just going through the motions. Saw Bridesmaids as well. Kind of a cute little movie, but I probably only laughed once or twice; definitely didn't live up to the hype. Though I will say that I find Kristen Wiig to be uniquely beautiful. First saw her in Whip

Journal Journal: Homeland

All I can say is ho lee shit. Carrie just totally lost her shit and is getting thrown out; I feel terrible for her. Of course the series was renewed a while ago so she's got to get back in the game in some fashion. Can't wait for the finale on Sunday.

Journal Journal: Boardwalk Empire

Very interesting. Nucky is going to be pissed with Margaret, but somehow I think he'll get over it. I was a bit surprised at the situation with Jimmy, but he seemed to be expecting it; also it's in Nucky's nature to do that. Kind of a bummer as he was one of the more interesting characters; I wonder what's in store for his mother and right hand man.

There are a lot of different views on Slashdot, but I'm glad we can all agree on something: Verizon sucks!

In other news, it was only a matter of time. The only surprising thing about this is that it didn't happen sooner. Hard to turn down free money...

I already had a relatively expensive plan so it was only a few bucks for me, but some people's plans almost doubled in price. Granted $7 or $8 is not that much in the scheme of things, but if my price doubled overnight without bringing any improvements in the service then I might also be pissed. I understand it was out of Netflix's control, but the condescending (lack of) explanation was a huge misstep. They should have just been forthcoming and honest about it and a lot of this rage could have been avoided.
