Survivor: Gabon - Finale

From left to right: Sugar, Kenny, Bob, Matty, Susie

Last night was the finale of Survivor: Gabon, and a bit lackluster if you ask me. So my three original choices from episode one were Kenny (The Gamer), Crystal (The Olympic Gold Medalist), and GC (The Token Brotha). Of my three choices, two of them made it to the final six, so not bad. Unforunately, neither of them would comprise the final three survivors.

The final four comprised of Sugar (The Pin-Up), Bob (The Physics Teacher), Susie (The Invalid), and Matty (The Workhorse). It was so clear that if Bob made it to the final three, that he would win the million dollars as the jury was made up of people from his old tribe, and clearly people who would not vote for Sugar and Susie. The last elimination vote basically came down to Matty or Bob leaving. Originally, they were unanimous on voting Bob out, but for whatever dumbfuck reason, Sugar, who I think is clinically retarded, decides maybe she can vote for Matty bringing the elimination to a tie. Wait a second. What the fuck!?!??! It made me angry to watch this. What the flying fuck was she thinking!?!?!??! Did she forget who the jury was? At least if she kept Matty on, she would have an even chance, I mean none of the jury really liked Sugar, Matty, or Susie. By keeping Bob in sealed her fate.

So the vote went to a tie, sending Matty and Bob to a fire making challenge to break it. Bob won. And yeah, in the end, Bob won the whole thing.

The final votes? 4 for Bob, and 3 for Susie. I have no doubt that those Susie votes are only because the jury members neither wanted to vote for Bob or Sugar, so it was the default choice. And, I bet that if Matty would have stayed, he would of won.

So Bob, the 57 year old physics teacher is a new millionaire. Well, if anything, I guess he deserves it, he played a good game. I was still rooting for Kenny though. Fuck that Sugar, screwed'em all!

Later geeks.

I didn't watch this show at all this year...I remember when the show first started and I thought, "what?! They can't do that. They can't drop people on an island and film them and see how they survive!" But then in came reality TV as we came to know it.

Oh. And I'm a dork. I thought Kevin was you. So read my last blog and read the comments, there's one for you there. You'll see what I mean. :P

I loved it the best when it first came out. It was the same summer that I worked at Wonderland, and I remember the day after every episode, we'd all talk about it while making cotton candy. Fond memories.

I stopped watching a few in the middle, but have picked it back up in the past 3 years. Sometimes I can get too into it, and it makes me angry (and "sweary"), but I love it all the same.

It was quite a week last week. It started off on a more heavy note last Sunday, but as the week wore on, things became better and more clear. So let's do a little recap. This is going to be kind of long, so if you find this kind of stuff boring I've inserted pictures of funny cats for your entertainment. So... 1.5 Weeks Ago About 1.5 weeks ago, my friend Jon from Living Room gave me the contact info for his uncle. His uncle is an engineer and apparently was looking for new grads and new hands to hire. That week, I gave him a few calls but he wasn't there when I called him and when he returned my calls, I wasn't here either. We were playing phone tag that week *insert schoolgirl giggle*. Sunday Morning So last Sunday morning, his uncle gave me a call at 9 am (The morning! My weakness! HISS!) and we talked about stuff. I was telling him a bit about school as well as elaborating my work/coop experience as he didn't have my resume yet. So he goes on to tell

The Science of God

Not too long ago, two of my friends had posted their thoughts on evolution and creationism. Both friends shared similar sentiments on the topic (you can view Skylar's here and Keith's here ). Coincidence or not, shortly before they made their postings, I purchased a book called The Science of God by Dr. Gerald Schroeder, which was based on the same topic. Unfortunately, at the time of my friend's postings, I had not finished the book, but now I have. In The Science of God , Schroeder attempts to debunk the dichotomy that exists between science/evolution and creationism. He tries to show that there can exist a duality between the two and that discoveries in science actually prove the story of creation in the bible. The book can be roughly divided into three categories that being the concepts of time, the second with the biology of evolution, and lastly the concept of free will. In describing time, he focuses on the 6 days that are explained in the beginning of Genes

MAX PAYNE was oh so PAYNEFUL!!!

What a failure this was. An EPIC FAILURE~! And I'll tell you why. This movie had everything going for it which was why it made the failure seem so huge. It had star power. It had a very competent director. The visual style was there. It had a simple storyline... a storyline that was basically fuck-proof because it's so basic. The effects (when there were any) were also pretty great. So where did they go wrong? Pacing. If the first two-thirds of the film was like the last third, I think it would have been a fine film. Not great by any means, but fine. I mean, there was hardly any action in the first hour. It was all talk and build up. Every 5 minutes I was saying to myself, "okay, something cool is gonna happen now". But it never came. I think had they added 2 or 3 big action sequences during that hour, that it would have helped the film breathe and flow better. I mean, didn't they realize that the source material was an action game? Max Payne is
