So Friday night I went to a local rave, here in my neck of the woods. It was pretty fucking awesome, in fact, it was probably the best rave I've been to of that size. It had somewhere around 400+ people. Now the music selection wasn't the best, consisting of mostly heavy house beats and some brostep. Outside of those, they did play a few good house songs and a little bit of European dubstep. It's not like I really cared that much about the music because I was so throttled on my favorite feel-goods. I had two caffeine based MDMA, drank a bit, smoked some medicine and went for a little ski trip. All-in-all, it was a good night. I met some great people, made some new connections and was invited to their next renegade. I wish I'd taken some pictures to show you guys, but my friend did, so I'll try to get a hold of those soon.

Because of my rough night though, I didn't sleep at all until 11:00am on Saturday and woke up around 5:30pm. I felt like I had just done the Drug Olympics or something. So I did the only thing that I could think of, smoke more medicine. Then I played Minecraft for about an hour before switching to Heroes of Newerth.

Heroes of Newerth, aka HoN, is a DotA-genre game, meaning you and four other teammates must destroy the enemy team's main structure by killing their heroes and pushing the lanes. There are 73 heroes to choose from, making two 5 vs. 5 teams. Each heroes has three standard abilities and one "ultimate" that you skill up as you level. Each match lasts anywhere from 30-60 minutes, although they can run shorter or longer.

Anyhow, I ended up playing that until 9:00am and then fell asleep watching some Outlaw Star. The reason for all these lame stories is because I just woke up at 5:30pm and I'm kind of pissed that I raped my sleep schedule. I don't know what I'm going to do about tomorrow...

the Beginning...

Well, this blog is just being born and there's got to be a first post. This blog is going to be an outlet for my thoughts on whatever seems to pass through. I'm sure it will mostly consist of posts regarding video games and films. But who knows what else I decide is worthy of mention here. I can have quite the wandering mind sometimes, so I'll try to keep some sort of formula to this place. We'll begin with a little something from the growing phenomenon of Minecraft.

Minecraft is a fantastic sandbox game with almost limitless potential. It is pretty hard to describe in just a few words, but epic and infinite both leap to mind. Watch this brief fan-made trailer to see what I mean.

Now, in case anyone here is interested in trying it out, there is a free version available to try on their website. It's really just a building mode, without the adventuring, crafting and mobs, but it gives you a feel for the real thing. There are also some really great multiplayer servers where I've seen up to 32 people playing together in the same world. If you've got a lot of time on your hands, you can really burn through it with this game.
