Adamorange.com 2002 Preview [16 Dec 2001|01:15am]
[ mood | tired ]

I think I'm just about done with the redesign of my site, Adamorange.com.

I'm taking a web design class, and this is my final project for the class. It's due monday morning, so if anyone sees any typo's or bugs please let me know.

I designed it for 1024x768, but also so that it would work in 800x600.

If anyone knows anyone who might find my site's "services" useful? plesae send em there..

Classic 8 bit gaming (continued) [21 Nov 2001|08:06am]
[ mood | nostalgic ]

Jimmy... do you remember the good ol days of wonder boy? ghost busters?

I remember wonder boy.. playing it lots and lots and remember not liking it cuz I sucked at it.. lol

I remember the first time when I saw R.O.B., the robot that came with the NES... back then when I saw it for the first time it had a totally different feeling with me than how the system had on me when it became more mainstreem. It's kind of like 1st generation or series garbage pail kids... I first heard of them about when generation 1 to 2 was out but I was like blah.. what a bunch of crap.. then when series 3 came out I was buy'n up in bulk.. lol..

my mind remembering this weird things still kinda trips me out.. you know how the sega master system played cards as well as cartridges? well those cards werent as popular, or there werent as many out .. but I had one or two.. for some reason I can remember where I bought one.. I remember it was at the macy's in the martinez area... I still remember getting my second sega master system (remember I had one at my dads and one at my moms, but I didn't have a nes until somewhat recently) and opening it up in the living room... pulling it out of the big white box.. all the styrofoam.. I even remember buying my SNES at macy's... I was living in fremont by then.. and a few years before that I guess I remember buying my game gear at the hilltop macy's for my birthday.. I believe I bought my genesis at macy's too.. although that's kind of foggy... kind of funky how I use to get a lot of my games at macy's... it's a shame they don't have an electronics department anymore.. although I doubt I'd shop there now days..

do any of these bring back memories anyone?

whoa... blast from the past [21 Nov 2001|07:45am]
[ mood | nostalgic ]

Has something ever crossed your path that you haven't seen, heard of, or even thought about for a good 10-15 years?

I was just surfing on ebay for sega master system games and I came across a game called Bomber Raid and whoa.. my brain totally sputtered and tripped out when I saw that game. It's kind of hard to describe but wow.. where does the time go? Kinda makes me sad that so much time has passed since the days of elementary school, which were some great times.

Anyways.. this game bomber raid.. I remember it so much because as far as I recall off hand it was the only Sega Master System game that came in a black box instead of the standard White with blue lines box art.

http://www.vgmuseum.com/scans/scans3/bomberraid.jpg

and I remember as a kid looking at the cover of this game (the url above) and just really liking it.. even now I look at it and my eyes are drawn to the activision logo.. because I think that's one part of it that I really liked as a kid... it's so bright and bold compared to the background.. high contrast..

but overall I have such fond memories of this game because it was a good game.. it's kind of funny.. i have fond memories of the game.. and a few speckles of "mental footage" of the game.. but the emotional tie with the game is high..

a whole innocence of that time in my life immediately flash through my mind... and the highlights are definitely video games... going over to my friend's house Keith Rose to play NES.. I remember VIVIDLY playing Mike Tysons punch out at his house a lot... I wonder whatever happened to him..

just shows how amazing our brains are.. while I can't remember every detail.. I still remember some of it.. and have an emotional snap shot of the times.. meaning that when I think of those times I think fondly of them.. because they were good times.. Daniel Neves.. Shawn Oliver.. damn.. what ever happened to those guys.. my brain feels like it's totally using parts that it's not use to.. hehe..

how pathetic! the warriors are losing to the knicks right now 84-46..

what the hell is up with the warriors? the first two games of the season it seemed like the same ol warriors, not being able to get the job done. Then over the next few games they showed us what potential they really have when they turned their 0-2 record into a winning record. But since that flash of potential, they've returned into a hybernation like state of losing. They barely beat the Chicago Bulls for crying out loud who have only managed a 1-9 record so far the season.

The waiting drove me mad. You're finally here and I'm a mess.
I take your entrance back. Can't let you roam inside my head.

I don't want to take what you can give.
I would rather starve than eat your bread.
I would rather run but I can't walk.
Guess I'll lie alone just like before.

I'll take the firmest path, and I must refuse your test.
Push me and I will resist. This behavior's not unique.

I don't want to hear from those who know.
They can buy but can't put on my clothes.
I don't want to limp for them to walk.
Never would have known of me before.

I don't want to be held in your debt.
I'll pay it off in blood, let I be wed.
I'm already cut up and half dead.
I'll end up alone like I began.

Everything has changed. Absolutely nothing's changed.
Take my hand, not my picture. Spilled my tincture.

I don't want to take what you can give.
I would rather starve than eat your bread.
All the things that others want for me,
Can't buy what I want because it's free. [2x]
Can't be what you want because I'm...

It's supposed to be just fun.
To live and die...let it be done.
I figure I'll be damned, all alone like I began.

It's your move now.
I thought you were a friend but I guess,
I... I guess I hate you.

No more teachers, no more books.. no more teacher's dirty looks... well at least until next week!

I can't wait.. this week's going to be fun.. After I go have thanksgiving dinner at my aunts house and hang out with cousins I'm going to come home and hang out with two good friends for a few days. Alan and George (maybe) are going to come hang out for thanksgiving, and a few days after.. so it's going to kind of be like old times. Not really sure what the plan is right now.. but I'm sure we'll be playing a lot of games, and hitting a lot of sales the day after thanksgiving.

haven't done this for the past 2 years because I've gone on vacations the past two years (hawaii and the caribbean), and plus george has been away at college down in the LA area for a while..

hopefully all will come together this year and we'll have a kick ass time..

While I am cheeful now.. the last 24 hours has kinda stank.. My hard drive bit the bucket yet again.. the second time that this particular hard drive has died on me in the past 6 months.. and the 3rd time in the past year that I've had computer problems like this.. where I had to start over again.. didn't really lose anything that im heart broken over.. but it's still annoying... maybe I'll save up and buy a new computer.. who knows..

band update [11 Nov 2001|09:07pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

well I met up with the band today.. who I guess I auditioned for... and although I thought I sounded extremely horrid.. I'm in.. for now at least..

It was my first experience singing with a band... I haven't even performed like this (singing) in front of people since the 6th grade or something.. when I took choir at school.. lol.. so this was somewhat nerve racking for me.. after the first song which was a pearl jam song and I should have known it like the back of my hand (but I bombed it).. at that point.. it was kinda like I couldnt do much worse so my attitude towards singing in front of them lightened up..

I still held back for most of the set cuz I'm a tard and wasn't totally comfortable, etc.. but towards the end of the set I was feeling pretty good.. more confident..

I'm kinda drained right now..(so pardon me if this post sounds like jibberish) I've been going to bed at 1-3am.. but at 8pm and I felt like I could have gone and climbed in bed and passed out...

As for the rest of the guys in the band... WOW.. I was realllllly impressed with them.. everyone there except for myself had 6-8+ years of experience with their instrunment..

I guess that's all I'll post about it for now.. we're meeting up again next week..

There goes an orange lady! [08 Nov 2001|03:21pm]
[ mood | stressed ]

Hey what's up orange lady? hehe..

hmmm so whats new with me... stressn stressn.. stressn.. looking for a job right now so I can afford to go to school next semester.. that's where most of the stress is right now.. tension between myself and my parents.. over money and my future..

I've been busy working on a new and improved layout for my site... one that actually looks professional in my opinion.. the current one isn't bad.. but its time to go in a different direction..

I have the opportunity to audition with a band this weekend.. and I think I'm going to go ahead and see how it goes.. but I'm kind of not in the mood at the moment.. worrying about money, school, my future, etc.. but in theory a band could bring cash one day.. so who knows.. and im auditioning for lead vocals btw..

i need to get some food cuz im starv'n over here...

hmmmm... hehe.. this disclosure thing with anyone who cares to read it kinda bugs... its not that I mind sharing with my friends or perfect strangers... I'll chat with anyone online til they piss me off :p hehe.. but I dont like displaying myself for all to see.. in this medium.. i guess cuz I dont want people who I know ...who I know I dont like to come and read stuff they dont deserve access to.. my nephew mentioned that I could set this up so that only the people on my friends list could read my posts.. but besides my nephew I dont know of anyone else who uses live journal.. and if I set it up like that then i wouldn't get to meet new cool people.. here.. like orangelady.. hehe.. ill have to check out her(your, if you're reading) journal..
