Dead Space 3 Trailer

Let me say I am super excited as having beaten the first 2 and with coop I think this game can be fantastic.

Ive only have one grip with the series. The metamorphosis of Issac Clark from everyman to a super stud action star.

Not just in mentality but looks.

This is Isaac in the ending of Dead Space 1 and the only time you see his face. Aside that you rarely hear his voice. The fact then when his helmet came off and he looked more like chubby faced balding dude just trying to make ends meet. It made him relate-able, root-able and actually even a bit more heroic.

This is Isaac now apparently after lipo, a massive hair transplant and apparently an eye shade change (didn't even know that was possible). Let me say comparatively to the first you couldn't get his dumb ass to shut the fuck up in the second one either.

Honestly wish they kept him the same way as the first cause I can only imagine he will look like THIS in 3

Wow that's desperate! Double edged post

Well this is sort of a double edged post. In one it's a review for a great little app on the play store called audio evolution.
I downloaded the free version of course to test and once I got to feel its system I thought, this is the app for me and at the price it's perfect. 
I'm a bass player, write lyrics and dabble with drums so I needed something to record with. I do have Sonar for the PC but honestly for my recording purposes, time, etc I wanted something portable and being I'm an android person I do not get he luxury of Apples full on recording suite, so when life gives you lemons you make lemonade.
I did a lot of research and played with a few apps, four tracks being one and this came out on top. It's very similar to Cakewalk and Sonar which I have some experience with and depending on the device (for me either my N7 or Nexus S) it's actually very capable at doing nice amateur recordings, though if you watch some videos online people do end up making some crazy shit with this app. Hope I'm that level soon.
Anyway Android still has latency issues of course and this app does give some directions and settings for latency correction but to me to the easiest way to do this is to just move your next track manually back a frame or so. I've been wanting to build a new website for my music and writing and I think this is the app to get me rolling.
On the side of the dev, I had to email him a suggestion and question and he got back super fast so that's always good in my book, and he gave me a nice tip that USB recording is being added to future releases so the ability to plug an external mixer in and get really seamless recordings will be awesome.

online grammar? Just stop it

I am a huge advocate of dropping online grammar.
If there is one thing I hate it's a grammar Nazi. To me if you're in a debate and someone corrects your punctuation, spelling, or word usage it really means they have nothing left. When someone makes any of the pre stated flubs towards me and my own common sense can't figure out what they mean I simply ask "what did you mean" or try my best and hope they politely correct me by correcting themselves.
You're online, you're typing as fast as humanly possible to get your point across, and usually dealing with several debates at a time so proper engrish is not usually my top priority. Just figure it out.
Even when I read online articles, there is something less I expect from them than the written paper word.
I see people on sites correct the author of an article as if to boost their own self esteem and when I ask why their big repsonse is "well their payed to write, they should do it right!"
Well get a job writing yourself then. Same premise, these people are writing several articles at a time sometimes and if that little red line doesn't say "hey stupid" they probably didn't even notice a mistake was made.
I will say is it disappointing to know we have become so reliant on spell checks, sure, but in the end the internet is not to be considered the ocean of the most intelligent fish. I would say 90% of users are based off social networks and youtube channels  so really expect great things in the written world, but online can people just loosen up a bit?

Social Security Increase

Whew the  Fiscal Cliff was avoided.... wait but at what cost? AT WHAT COST!!!!!

Well in the mist of everything there was a nice little 2% social security increase added to everyone. So the increase on the wealthy only was not really true.

For someone that makes $50,000 per year, that's about $1,000 per year in social security tax that they did not pay last year and that will be about $38 a paycheck if they're paid every 2 weeks. Now, someone who makes $30,000 per year, that increase will be about $600 every year in SS tax or about $23 check every 2 weeks," states Jonathan Scales, Adviant Human Resources.

I'm sorry but 600 to 1000 a year is a lot of fucking money. Now many will say this is the presidents fault or the republicsn fault but they are wrong.... IT's BOTH.
You see in the debating this was brought up and both sides let it go and said meh, "fuck em".

So why any of you ever pick a "side" (bunny quotes) is beyond me because they are all out to fuck you and take your money.
Please people I'm begging, take the initiative and start running for offices in your cities, towns, and states!
Don't leave these positions open to those who want nothing more than to increase their own wealth.

This country is in a constant flux of take with no stretch back. Imagine a rubber band and you keep pulling and pulling. The elastic can only take so much before it starts to whiten and then snap. Once that snap happens it hurts both hands.

I can't see why we even need to raise the tax on something that is supposedly
1) empty and running on funds that are completely borrowed
2) will be empty by the time I will need it

“that for a nation to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.“
