[music |The Arch Rivals' Main Theme]

Well, the 4 Mafos finally got together again, reunited for the first time in a while. After just putzing around for a while and taking a random drive to Wal Mart, we decided to begin work on our next video. It will be quite a long video. It is the return of the M.W.F. We made a semi-rigid storyboard for some of the event. We also shot the opening scene, which took us way too fucking long to do. I think we are making it into a sneak peek thing, because the screwups were quite funny. It got to the point where we needed to take a break and watch "Mean Girls" and eat popsicles to settle down. All I know is that the video is gonna be awesome whenever we get to do the whole thing. That won't be for months though... probably not till summer. Then the editing... but I think we will try to get that done as quick as we can. Either way it was fun. Good to hang out with everyone again.

My bit of bad news... I can't get my car till next saturday. I am quite mad about this because I wanted to get it tomorrow so I could drive it over break. The state of Pennsylvania fucked up something and now I am out of a car for a while. The only good part is I get to sleep in tomorrow. Good, because I need a good night's sleep. But still man, that definitely shrunk my boner down a few notches...

Ahh well. Time to watch the video footage again, play some WoW, and relax... all after a hard day of doing nothing.

Yea... funny to think that dude from Korn decided to find God or something.  I am pretty sure this dude who has been religious for about two weeks heard God speak to him... telling a band like Slayer to stop doing what they do.  Yes, Kerry King is an idiot for wanting to press charges against someone just for saying something.  But what the hell is wrong with people?  I got news for this dude formerly from Korn... have you ever listened to Marduk?  Dimmu Borgir?  Windir?  Deicide?  Vital Remains?  Yep, those bands are FAR more satanic than Slayer.  And yes, I listen to (and enjoy) all of the aforementioned.  Maybe I should be the one to stop being so evil, eh?  I mean, I listen to the stuff.  Either way, "Head" is a moron who needs to shut up... or at least pick on a worse band than Slayer. 

If it weren't for stuff like this, I wouldn't have something to laugh about every day.  Thank you, Mr. Stupid... you just made my day.  Everyone already knows my stance on religion... I just don't really care.  I figure I ain't that bad (matter of fact, I am pretty fucking nice) and I should get into heaven no problem if it exists.  Besides, a few people on Earth have called me a God, so I should be a good right-hand man to him, right?  Nah, I didn't think so either, but it's all good.

Ahh but the day was still splendid.  I didn't drink, and I don't care.  I wasn't gonna let that spoil my day.  So I just bought my DT tickets, hung with Mr. Fedor, helped Meena take out the trash, and then ate 'zza and watched The Incredibles.  Meena and I are already trying to figure out what we want to do in Canada next month.  Actually, we are just trying to figure out what to drink... I'll probably have a Guinness or something with dinner, but I ain't doing anything else.  Meena's philosophy was pretty cool... just drink expensive shit because it won't give you much incentive to drink a lot.  I won't booze out anyways... just a Guinness.  That will be my nod to the Irish heritage.. or something like that.

And for the record... I am probably more Irish than the dicks who took off of work or school just to drink.  My name used to be O'Corcoran until the fam. came over from Ireland... dropping the "O" was a good idea because it sounded stupid.  Time to finish my next ownage mix and burn a copy for Davey and Nicko.

[music |Slayer - Raining Blood (just for Nate!)]

First off, my studying may have actually paid off... I felt that the econ. test today wasn't that bad. Yay for that. The ride home was fun, catching up with the father figure. We talked about that wrestling book some more, and we yelled at shitty drivers together, and we talked about my car. Now the guy who is getting the title for the car for us might have fucked up, so now I might not get the car till tuesday or something like that. Nothing is for sure, but I hope I get it by Sat.

I finally completed the Weird Al cd collection! I might be the only dork to have accomplished this task out of the people I know. But that makes me cool, I think. Nah... just weird. The stuff shipped to me and I am ripping as we speak.

Oh man, I got home and basically orgasmed over the fact that I am finally at home. I took a barefoot shower and got to clean the toes out a bit. Got ice cream with the Meenanator. He had a slight problem at the bank though... Meena, you should comment every once in a while since you probably read this journal incessantly. It sucks that I had to pay for ice cream tonight, ya know. Meena could have easily swiped with his credit... oh wait, he couldn't because Mr. ATM was hungry.

New South Park... holy shit. Watch it. Hippes dying, making fun of college kids who think they are cool, big drills killing a hippie fest, and to top it all off, Slayer is played to drive the hippies out of town. God I love it.

Sean is a douche. I bet he also stalks me in my journal like Meena and Nicko do. They don't comment, but I know they are lurking. So does Matt too I bet. They probably read all of my friend's journals too. Kinda creepy, huh? Oh well, Sean is a fucking puch who spams the same fucking sound file from his room over and over again on speakers. It was a bad idea to show him the first ep. of Robot Chicken. I regret it now... but at least he knows good television when he sees it.

I basically incorporated most of my uh, friends already in this entry. To finish off, HI MARISSA, SAM, NICKI, AND CARL! AND NATE! AND COLLEEN! Is that everyone? Ehh who knows.

I have ran this entry into the ground now. Time to just relax for the next 10 days. Let me know if ya wanna do stuff (whoever reads this thing) and I will try to put some time aside for you.

My love for you seems to be relative to my current mood, sure.  But today I love you, Al.  You finally got off your stupid do-shitty-in-college ass and did something right for once:

Kids, Out of the Pool: Time for Adult Swim

        In times of stale and contrived reality shows and endless amounts of cop dramas, there is a demographic of our population that strives to find something different to watch on television.  This demographic is the male, age 18 to 34.  In this day and age, men seem to have grown tired of the late-night talk shows that used to dominate the ratings for late-night television.  Networks have been trying to figure out for quite sometime what it is that these males want to watch late at night.  It seems that a Turner-based network has found the answer.  The Cartoon Network is a 24-hour channel of cartoons, ranging from old Looney Tunes cartoons to the newly innovative animation shows such as “Dexter’s Laboratory” and “The Powerpuff Girls.”  The question still remains though: how can a network that shows only cartoons possibly appeal to adults?  To answer, one must jump in the late-night television pool and find out.  A block of television comprised mainly of inexpensively made cartoons showed up on Cartoon Network, aptly titled Adult Swim.  After a grassroots-campaign through droves of college campuses, the animation block became popular enough to start its run on this 24-hour cartoon network.  Airing Sunday through Thursday from 11p.m. till 5a.m., this is a showcase of adult-oriented cartoons that has taken the male demographic (and ratings) by storm.  Network executives are still questioning how cartoons could possibly captivate audiences.  Even though cartoons are childish in looks, they are still recognized by the 18-34 year old male as being a viable form of comedy, chock-full of innovation, satire, and intelligent commentary.
        The 18-34 year old male has made a clear-cut statement that they want to watch fast-food superheroes and animated sitcoms when late-night rolls around.  Take Family Guy for an example.  In July 2004, Family Guy retained the number-one spot on late-night television among males 18 to 34, which is up nearly 31 percent from the summer of 2003. (Grimm 2) This block of animation consistently beats out network television shows such as Jay Leno and David Letterman in the ratings. (Poniewozik 1) From 2003 to 2004, the number of Adult Swim viewers grew by over 60 percent, going from 180,000 to 431,000 viewers. (Peters 2) These numbers are nothing to scuff at; the average young adult male wants to watch cartoons late at night.  At the same time though, in one year’s time women viewers have shot up 167 percent. (Ebenkamp 3)  How did one block of television steal this demographic so quickly? 
        For a block of television to be successful, it must be produced by keen minds and marketed equally as well.  Adult Swim’s roots date back to 1994 with the release of Space Ghost, Coast to Coast. This was essentially a parody of a late-night show, using an old Hanna-Barbera superhero as the host.  He has an alien bandleader and had nonsensical interviews with real-life celebrities. (Poniewozik 1) The show’s creator, Mike Lazzo, is also the executive producer of the animation block. (Peters 4) Thanks to the success of the show, Adult Swim was created in 2001 to air between the hours of 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.  The big challenge that the marketing director Greg Heanue was given was to market Adult Swim with only around $100,000. (Ebenkamp 1) His plan was to make cheap merchandise with “Adult Swim” plastered all over them and market the show to 30 pre-selected college campuses.  These young adults formed the loyal fanbase that the show needed, propelling its popularity to cult status.  The fans apparently saw something amazing in these cartoons about talking fast-food articles and misfit superheroes.  The secret lies within the cartoons themselves; they are genuinely funny objects of entertainment.  The re-airing of one particular cartoon propelled Adult Swim into the big headlines.
        Family Guy, a cancelled FOX network cartoon, tells of Peter Griffin and his (un) ordinary life with his family.  The show resembles a parody of the campy family sitcoms of the early 90’s, such as Home Improvement or Full House.  The show’s popularity resides in the fact that a completely normal family gets into these outlandish situations, many being purely comical and hysterical in nature.  Young adults that watch the show find charm in the show’s wisecracks at society, parody on family life, and jabs at representational trends in our culture.  In the episode entitled Fifteen Minutes of Shame, the family is cast into their own reality television show that closely resembles the popular MTV show, The Real World.  Everything from character profiling to brooding arguments to characters leaving the show (only to be re-cast), this episode takes a comical look at today’s reality television shows.
        Many of the shows we watch today are supposedly depicting real-life situations, usually put into a game show-type format.  There are sometimes winners that get prizes and losers who have to suffer consequences.  There have been countless retreads of shows like American Idol and Survivor popping up everywhere.  Family Guy’s take on this trend shows us the ridiculous side of these often-asinine shows.  The daughter, Meg, represents the person on the show that is portrayed as the “nag”.  Reality television shows usually pick a popular person, a nag, and the person no one seems to care about.  This tactic is used to make people want to watch the show even more to see what happens to them.  In this episode, Meg leaves the reality television show, only to be replaced by a more beautiful version of her.  To complicate the situation even more, the whole family ends up leaving the show.  The real Meg returns to find her entire family has now been re-casted.  Young adults who tune into this show and see a situation like this happen recognize the satire depicted and get a good laugh.  While this is the number one show on Adult Swim, another show has had booming success in the late-night timeslot.
        Aqua Teen Hunger Force is an offbeat postmodern cartoon that showcases a group of slacker superheroes that closely resemble “Happy Meal” items.  These oddball characters go on “adventures,” such as trying many get-rich-quick schemes instead of fighting crime. (Poniewozik 1) Their villains in the show mainly consist of outlandish monsters that more closely resemble college roommates rather than true-to-life villains. (Grimm 2) In the episode entitled The Universal Remonster, two dim-witted aliens hijack the Aqua Teen’s cable through a space portal.  The Universal Remonster is supposed to change the channels for the aliens, but instead walks through the portal and into the Aqua Teen’s house, where he messes with their television instead.  The “leader” of the trio, Frylock, eventually goes through the portal to reclaim their cable and inform the aliens that their Universal Remonster has ran out of batteries.  With a plot so wacky, how could anyone besides a child let his or her imagination run so wild enough to enjoy it?
        The truth of the matter is, young adults still enjoy their superheroes.  This generation grew up with cartoons on Saturday mornings such as Looney Tunes, the Hanna-Barbera cartoons, and G.I. Joe. (Peters 1) Many of those Hanna-Barbera cartoons were terribly done, and often tanked after a single season of being on-air.  The slacker mentalities in the characters displayed in ATHF often mimic and imitate personas from those old shows, giving the average young adult viewer a slight feeling of nostalgia.  There is charm in a show that gives a nod to its roots before completely tearing them to shreds in a comedic fashion.  Also, the crazy plot lines can appeal to the insomniac that is just cruising through the stations late at night.  The blatantly funny shows that appear to be about nothing have been the key to the success of Adult Swim.  A brand new show that premiered on February 20, 2005 shows that cartoons can be quite versatile, showcasing this through parodying the all-to-common sketch show.
        Robot Chicken is an all-out attack on the viewer’s senses.  The show is simply a collection of mini sketches that fly by at light speed, giving you the feeling that you are channel surfing.  The animation consists of action figures and claymation to act out the scenes.  The sketches never intertwine, often bouncing from sketch-to-sketch quickly after the often-implied witty punch line at the end of each segment.  The segments are purely satirical pieces, ripping on pop culture of the past and present in the same vain as a show like Saturday Night Live… only at warp speed.  The premier episode entitled Junk in the Trunk pokes fun at the old cartoon show entitled Transformers, with Optimus Prime getting prostate cancer.  MTV’s Total Request Live is spliced with CSPAN, there is an overly exaggerated parody of the “Brain on Heroin” drug commercial, and a blooper-reel show, referencing everything from Poke’mon to Superman rounds off the 11-minute show.  This show perfectly embodies the element of “randomness” that many people crave in their television viewing.
        I, like many others viewers of Adult Swim, enjoy ever-changing television.  Attention spans are growing shorter these days and television viewing is a pretty good showcase of this.  When cruising the channels I see tons of things to watch, most of it not being good.  You have your reality television, advertisements, cop dramas, news stations, and comedy stations.  In a span of just those mere seconds of channel surfing, you will have seen many different types of television all rolled into one.  When you see something you do not like, switching the channel occurs out of impulse.  Those few times you stop and tune in to see how much you really do not enjoy it.  When something is universally known as bad, it is often parodied.  Anything can be made funny, as long as it is done tastefully and creatively.  These adult-oriented cartoons constantly parody new things as they are introduced.  To the lover of satire and parodies, these shows are essential in viewing on a constant basis.  This light-speed approach to parody through inexpensive cartoons keeps viewers like me watching.
        Television keeps your attention by making you constantly pay attention.  In a good movie, you can’t turn away for a few seconds or you will miss something crucial.  Cartoons with a linear plot can be similar.  This cartoon keeps your attention simply through making sketches that are very short and to the point.  Young adults experience nostalgia in seeing references to things of their past, such as other cartoons, video games, and pop culture.  Even though the shows on Adult Swim are often risqué and contain foul language, older viewers can connect with the shows through this fantastical reliving of their past. (Gilgoff 2) A cartoon such as Robot Chicken is a direct shot of nostalgia to the viewer.  Although the animation is often clunky and not perfect, a grown-up watching the show can appreciate it through the often hilarious takes on pop culture. (Gilgoff 2)  If the satire, sense of randomness, parody, and overall comedic feel are not contributors to Adult Swim’s success, then perhaps it is due to expensive and flashy technology?
        On the contrary, the cartoons that you view on Adult Swim are among the most inexpensive pieces of television ever to air.  The people who work to make Adult Swim have chosen to spend the least amount of money possible, in any way they can.  Instead of hiring voice actors, many of the writers and producers on the show contribute their own voices to the show. (Peters 4) Since Ted Turner owns the rights to the old Hanna-Barbera cartoons, those cartoons are often recycled and used in newer cartoons such as Sealab 2021 or Harvey Birdman: Attorney-At-Law. (Gilgoff 2) To add even more bang-for-their-buck, the creators have opted to using cheap computer software to animate their shows.  This means the creators can make more shows without needing an in-house staff and do not have to hire people to draw their cartoons. (Peters 4) In lieu of saving so much money in every way thinkable, it means that the show can take many other risks that other shows simply cannot.
        If a show that is produced by Adult Swim is aired and does not get ratings, the show can simply be scrapped and replaced by something new and fresh.  Viewers of Adult Swim appreciate the fact that the shows can do so much with so little to begin with.  The inexpensiveness of the entire operation of making these shows allows their creators to let their imaginations run completely wild without having to worry about costly consequences.  The official Adult Swim website, along with their in-between-show programming consists of a simple black background with white text super-imposed over it.  This of course is another cost-cutting measure by the staff and has become quite popular among viewers.  Between the shows, the writers come up with witty little blurbs to display on-air.  One example in particular pokes fun at themselves for being cheap, displaying animated white jumping flames with the saying, “This cost us about $1.99 to make” after it. (Peters 4)  These blunt statements have a cult following to them, and Thursday nights have been proclaimed to be “Viewer Card Night” where people can send in their own ideas for cards via the Internet and have them shown on-air. (Ebenkamp 2) 
        These on-air interactions with the droves of viewers that watch Adult Swim add even more sugarcoated charm to the program itself.  People feel as if they are part of their own small community, instantly clicking with the humor put forth by its creators.  This blue-collar feel to Adult Swim has effectively captured the 18-34 year old male demographic and does not appear to be letting go anytime soon.    Justin Peters of Washington Monthly states that the theme that most of the shows share is “Ironic detachment and meta-commentary on the metaphors and tropes of bad television.” (Peters 4) This trend in which cartoons rip on other old television shows, societal trends, and even themselves has grown in popularity ever since Adult Swim made it alright to do this.  While other networks have tried to copy Adult Swim in attempts to steal back some of the demographic, nearly all of them have failed.  They have tried too hard to emulate the successful cartoons on Adult Swim, ultimately succumbing to repetitiveness and overall mediocrity.
        Yet the efforts of other networks attempting the cartoon business has definitely pointed to a representational trend in our modern society.  Cartoons are now being viewed as something more than just a colorful form of programming for kids.  As more and more people take a dip in the late-night television pool during Adult Swim, more are viewing these adult-oriented cartoons as true comedic pieces.  Loaded to the brim with funny social commentary, parody, self-reflexivity and satire, cartoons are becoming increasingly popular in our society among young adults.  With so many other tiresome trends in our media, be it reality television or cop dramas, cartoons are there to grill, skewer and gobble them up whole.  So come on in, the water is fine: when it is time for the kids to get out of the pool, enjoy your period of Adult Swim.

Teh sleep demons [Mar. 15th, 2005|02:03 pm]

[mood |stupid dreams...]
[music |Soilwork - Razor Lives]

Man, why the hell can't I get a decent night's sleep these days? If I am not dreaming up the most retarded dream evar, I am constantly waking up every few hours, sweating. Maybe it is just the bed or something, but I just cannot get a good night's sleep. I get a decent amount, but I just feel like crap when I wake up.

Last night's dream was just plain old weird. For some reason, Will Smith's kid (Will Smith Jr.) was being tried for a felony. He was running some drug cartel at a local golf course where he worked. So anyways, I am apparently his brother and I have to go with my family to witness his trial. I also had to go to my high school graduation at the same time, so I dressed in my gown and appeared at the trial in my graduation garb. Funny, this was a giant auditorium of a courthouse. All of my classmates were there, and they informed me that we were graduating there. I didn't know what to think, so I just went with it.

For some reason, the graduation was held before the trial. My friend Jacob Richwine (goes by "Ween" online) was the dude who was supposed to announce the names. Funny, he lives in Indiana... anyways, we are ordered to march out of the room to file in alphabetical order. I forgot my shoes though, so I proceeded to walk barefoot. I know I was supposed to be standing between Alex Cope and Noah Coyner. Problem was I couldn't find them. I was walking between two unknown faces instead. Senora Cyr was watching over our "group".

Now I hate dreams that go absolutely nowhere. In this dream, I swear we walked around in single-file line for an eternity. In the last part, I finally ask Cyr where the fuck my group is. She responds with "How the fuck should I know? It doesn't matter, the C's are a weak group anyways... you can just enter whenever." Yea, whatever the fuck that means. We get outside and I find Dippong. He said I looked like a stoned asshole walking around in no shoes. That is where the dream just randomly ended.

What the hell was that? What a lame-ass dream. I HATE those dreams. At least if I am killed in my dream, I have some kind of closure to it. This one just went forever and just stopped. Boooring.

Oh well, time to go turn in my paper and do some last-minute studying/not paying attention/listening to music instead. Psych. test is at 5. Hoorah?!

Right now I am listening to Skydancer, the first Dark Tranquillity cd. It kicks major ass. But that isn't what this is about.

I will now paint a scene for ya, and you will answer my question truthfully.

I am in a band, and we have released our first album. It does not matter who the other band members are for the question's sake. We have a website and everything. Our first album contains 12 tracks, and two of them are up for download. Now we specifically sell our cd in all kinds of stores throughout the nation. We offer the two songs for download but tell you to buy the album if you want more. Now you go online on your p2p sharing proggy and see the album up for download. Now do you take the cd from there, or shell out the money for the cd? What affects your decision? I am curious to see how people respond to this. You can be as long-winded in your answers or as short as you want.

I will put my thoughts up after I see other's thoughts. I have a point I am trying to get at. I am just curious to see feedback first.

That is all.

[mood |hurting]
[music |Rammstein - Sonne]

I wasted about 13 hours of my life this weekend studying. I call it a waste because I do not exactly feel that I learned anything new. My brain really does feel like mush. So to alleviate, I watched the new Robot Chicken about an hour ago. It didn't really help, but at least I will not look at my books and notes for a while. Gotta get past these next three days and I am FREE.

I will probably post my english paper tomorrow. It isn't overtly creative or even exciting... but I never have anything to brag about, and this paper will definitely be getting an A. I figure I should gloat for once.

I listened to so many cds this weekend, it was insane. A list if I may:

-Every single Offspring CD (Self-titled, Ignition, Smash, Ixnay on the Hombre, Americana, Conspiracy of One, Splinter)
-Dimmu Borgir - Death Cult Armageddon
-Green Day - Nimrod
-Dark Tranquillity - (Character, Skydancer/Of Chaos and Eternal Night, Projector)
-Old Man's Child - In Defiance of Existence
-Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics
-Mercenary - 11 Dreams
-Mudvayne - Kill I Oughta
-Weird Al Yankovic - Running with Scissors
-Kalmah - Swamplord
-40 Below Summer - (Invitation to the Dance, The Mourning After)
-Fear Factory - Archetype

That is a lot of cds. 21 if you felt like counting. Plus I had other crap I periodically listened to in shuffle. This fact alone proves that I need spring break to come fast. Gotta get off my ass a bit.

People have been bothering the shit outta me. I am always studying in my room alone. I do this because no one else is really in any of my classes. Plus, that psych. crap is all just memorization. So Matt leaves the room, and people periodically open my door and just peer in for a second (looking for Matt... AKA Plod) and just leaving. They don't really talk to me.. they just look for Matt, eventhough I said he isn't here. So I decided to make a "PLOD ISN'T HERE" sign to hang. Then Matt made two more signs... the "I AM HERE" sign and the "I AM SLEEPING" sign. This will ward off the annoying fuckheads for a while. I will have to edit some of those signs though... to uhh, "beautify" them. Maybe I will post them on my site, because I have been doing that a lot lately. I get bored, sorry.

Time to finally kick back for a few. Later.

SNL did Spade no justice [Mar. 13th, 2005|01:07 am]

The show was just OK tonight. Spade was funny as hell. The beginning of the show was promising but began to drop off around weekend update. Weekend update sucked so bad... too long, not funny (hold one Jacko joke), and was predictable. I actually called out a joke before it happened. How sad is that?

Yep, another day, another missed opportunity for Darrell Hammond. He was there, but mainly in spirit. If I see another "Bear City" skit anytime soon, I might just stop watching the show. Those are the shittest skits ever created. One funny thing I noticed is that after they came back from a commercial (before the band played their song), Spade must have told a joke during commercial, because the crowd was laughing when the cameras came on.

Now I will probably catch hell for saying this, but Jack Johnson is boring as hell. I do not know what people see in these guys. It is like boredcollegefratboy rock. The melodies repeat themselves for a full three minutes, never deviating from one simple guitar strum. The guy doesn't have a very dynamic voice, and I don't really feel any emotion while watching them. I compare them to a shitty version of Ben Folds Five. I like Ben Folds... not Jack Johnson. 50 Cent was more entertaining than Jack Johnson... at least I got to laugh at 50 Cent's uhh, bling-ness.

David Spade is still funny though, and some of the skits tonight were quotable. My quote for the night: "The thought of a stunt double of me being a chick and also nursing a baby gave me an unexpected chub."

Not sure what to think about next week's... but I will still be watching. As long as there is no Bear City that is...

I also posted some pictures from my latest arts and crafts project... can't remember the name of teh album though.
