2 new piercings, 1 new game

And I hereby promise that the rest of my money will be spent on Christmas gifts to others, not myself. I swear!

My two new piercings are the two on the top of my ear, btw. I've been wanting to do it for years, but never gotten around to do it. Now I did. Yay, me!
(Please ignore the rest of me. I just got inside from the wet and cold outdoors, and I didn't bother with fixing up for one lousy photo of my new piercings. So yeah... Look at the piercings! Ignore the rest.)

New game; Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Been wanting it ever since it got out, but once again... I never got around to buy it. Last Christmas gift for myself, I swear! Now I'll just wish for Halo: CE Anniversary and The Old Republic for Christmas.
Oh, boyfriend ~ <3

And that was today's update.
Now I'll be eating some food and watching a couple more episode of Prison Break.
I love that show. Pure genius.

Signing out!

Ah, Hell no...

My first thoughts when I woke up this morning, looked out the window, and saw this:

What the bloody Hell happened!?

F*** you, King Winter.
I hate you so much.
Where's this global warming everyone's talking about?
Huh? HUH?

Oh well. Have to get ready for a new group therapy session anyway. I guess my hatred for snow isn't enough of an excuse to stay home. Upside is that we've been invited upstairs to the lady we rent our apartment from this evening. Pizza-time. One less meal for us to make. Free food, yay!

Signing out!

MW3 Campaign on Veteran



I started the MW3 Campaign on Veteran difficulty yesterday. I always run through it on Regular first, just to check it out, and then try to die my way through the Veteran difficulty. Yes, die. Because I'm usually very good at dying.

But it's kind of fun playing through Veteran now, because I realize that I've become so much better! MW2 was my first FPS game ever, so that one on Veteran... Well, I did die my way through it. So much cursing, so much time being pissed off. Good times.

And now, as I'm currently working my way through MW3's Campaign on Veteran, I'm not dying my way through it. Instead of reaching a checkpoint, die five times, reach the next checkpoint, die another five times, and so on... I'm actually playing the game, not just dying.

Lol, this was so random. But it's fun. I started playing Xbox 360 two years ago, and I haven't been playing FPS for two years yet, but yet I can feel that I've become better. Hell, I can even kick my fiance's a** in Call of Duty now, and he's been playing these games for 10 years or so.

There are moments where I still die my way through the game, though. When I'm stationary. When I had to get on the f***ing mortar and hit the targets on the ground. When I had to be the gunner on the tank. And now, as I'm sitting in the back of a blue van, being chased by foot patrols, driving vehicles and hinds. I'm not able to move at all, except from shooting and reloading my weapon. And I die. And die. And die. And die.

It's frustrating!
But I'm not giving up.
Might have to take a break now, though...

3 new games

... and I'm in heaven.
I've only played one of them so far, but I'll try the second one tomorrow.
The PS2 game will have to wait until I get the proper cables and the proper TV....

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - Hardened Edition
for Xbox 360.
Includes one year's membership on Call of Duty Elite with Founder status, a Juggernaut outfit for my Xbox Live avatar, collectable box and steelbox for the game disc and Cpt. John 'Soap' MacTavish's field journal.
Good stuff <3

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Collector's Edition
for Xbox 360.
Includes a 'Behind the Scenes' DVD, a map of Skyrim, artbook and a statue of the dragon Alduin. The dragon is beautiful and much bigger than I anticipated, and absolutely worth the money. If you're a huge fan and a collector of geek items, that is.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter
for Playstation 2.

The mail that made my day!

I would post the mail here, but since it's in Norwegian, I doubt you'd understand it anyhow.

Anyway, to sum it up the mail was from an online store where I buy my games and DVDs and CDs and all of that stuff. So guess what the mail was about?

That's right.
They sent my copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - Hardened Edition today.
I didn't think they'd send it until tomorrow.
But they sent it today.
They sent it today!
Which means I might get it tomorrow!!


Excited for this game? Me? Nooo, what makes you think that?
Seriously, though... I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Oh, also, my fiance works at this gaming store. And he made sure that they ordered in one Collector's Edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and he'll hold it for me. Because I've made very clear that I want exactly that version of the game. Just to get the dragon statue.

The Vet and The n00b

Yeah, I suck at blogging. I've been around a lot lately, so I haven't bothered to find time for the blog. Oh well. I'll try to blog a bit these next couple of days, because you won't see me for a while after the 8th.

Why not?
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, of course!

Only three days left!

Aaand yeah... I love that they have Sam Worthington in that trailer, btw. I just love that guy. And his voice. He's awesome as Mason in Black Ops. Kind of cool, though... I just got home from the store where I bought a new DVD. Clash of the Titans. With Sam Worthington. Coincidence?

Anyway, now I'm going to enjoy a slice of home made pizza, salty chips, Cola Zero, the new episode of Supernatural and maybe I'll watch Clash of the Titans too. Sam Worthington AND Liam Neeson ftw <3

Project: Custom Mando

While I already have a Project: Boba Fett going on, I realise that it will cost me too much money over a longer period of time to finish it. Which is why I have also designed a custom Mandalorian (and a trooper - but we'll get to that when I have the money to buy a Clone Trooper helmet) and have decided to work on her for a while. I want my Boba Fett to be as screen accurate as possible (maybe even 501st acceptable), so it'll take too damn long. I need to have something else to work on in the meantime.

So today I received a package with UPS that included the first two items for my custom Mando. A Hasbro Boba Fett helmet and a Hasbro Boba Fett blaster. The two of them will be modified (at least the helmet - the blaster will most likely just be repainted) and painted in a different colour scheme.

I'm psyched and I can't wait to get some extra cash to be able to start fixing them up. More on this project will come later. Trust me.

Spending money...

... that I don't really have. Seriously, I have to get better with the money. I have bills that I should pay, I have parts for my Boba Fett/Custom Mando that I should pay and still I'm ordering things online...

Well. My last order isn't coming out until November, so at least I'll have some time to save money for that one. You see, I just pre-ordered Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Hardened Edition. I just had to. With it, I get a full year's membership on Call of Duty Elite, Founder status on Elite (which gives me all kinds of special stuff on multiplayer) and a bunch of other cool things. I can't help it. I am so psyched for this game, I think I'm going to die before it comes out. I watched the singleplayer trailer some days ago, and I was in heaven. But there are still two things I haven't gotten an answer to yet. About the campaign. I want to know now. I can't wait for the game. Damnit.

So if anyone would be interested in buying the regular version of Modern Warfare 3, let me know. Because I pre-ordered that some months ago from the store my fiancé works. And I got a free t-shirt when I did it.

Oh, money. I wish I had them. Or at least knew how to spend them more wisely.

New tattoos!

And with the tattoos, the proof of how big of a geek I actually am becomes visible for the world to see. At least with one of them. Star Wars ftw!

Btw, I wouldn't recommend anyone to take a tattoo where I took the bantha skull. It f***ing hurt like hell!! I made it through, but goddamnit, seriously... I think I did a little trip to Hell during that tattoo. Not planning another on the stomach. Simply put.

I have to take a shower and wash the damn things soon. I'm not looking forward to it. Because they hurt now. While being in air. How will they feel with hot water running over them? *shudders*

Oh well. I have the bantha skull. Does that make me Mandalorian? =D

New books, new DVD

I am sooo happy! Three new books and a DVD dropped into my mail today, and the DVD is currently running across the screen as I write. I simply couldn't wait. I've been looking for this DVD for years, and now it's finally out! Yes, of course, I'm talking about The Lion King. It has to be one of Disney's best movies ever!

So yeah, new DVD: Disney's The Lion King Diamond Edition <3

New books: Dracula by Bram Stoker, The Call of Chtulhu and Other Dark Tales by H. P. Lovecraft and The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll enjoy the beauty that is The Lion King. With music by Hans Zimmer. F*** yeah!

What is Norway?

Yeah, I was about to Google something, but when I reached what is n...., I saw something I found quite funny. Or maybe sad. For us, that is.

Coming of Autumn

It's the 24th of September (been together with my fiancé 2 years and 2 months today, btw), and despite the sun, the weather is grey and cloudy. The Ice Queen and King Winter are surely making their way towards us, and I wouldn't be surprised if they had covered our country in snow in a month or so.

In the coming month, all I will do is prepare for the cold and the dark that they bring. I hate the winter. I hate the snow. I hate the cold. So I must prepare. I'll need a lot of candles. There's nothing like lightning a few candles in the darkness. Scented candles are a must, of course. I need more movies. More videogames. More books. Anything that can give me warmth and joy and take my mind away from the white, icy world outside. I need to prepare.

Some of my TV-shows are starting again. Grey's Anatomy has started its 8th season, and Supernatural its 7th.

In the coming months, my wallet will be empty because of new videogames. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, as well as the remake of the very first Halo, and Xbox 360 remakes of the three first games of Metal Gear Solid.

In my shelves there are a lot of books, many of them still unread, and even more on their way through the mail.

Perhaps I will survive this winter too.

Gears of War 3

The first time I tried Gears of War, was a few months after I started playing Xbox 360. I played Gears of War 2, and it was difficult as f***, so I gave up. Did a few Hordes every now and then with my fiancé, though.

Now, I've been playing X360 for about two years (2 years in December, to be exact), and I am starting to get good at it. So with my fiancé's obsession over Gears of War 3, naturally I had to try it out too. Yesterday, the day it came out. While he was at work. Probably the dumbest thing I have ever done, because I finished the campaign yesterday as well. On the easiest difficulty, mind you. Sweet Jesus, I am not looking forward to completing it on the hardest.

But seriously. The game kicks a**. I've read a few reviews on the game, and most of them seems to think that the characters have too many stupid comments throughout the game. Personally, I love those comments. In the middle of a heated battle against the Lambent, when I heard Dom cry out "You destroyed my tomatoes!" then kill the thing... I laughed. Hard. Or Marcus' "You came between Dom and his crops, colonel - this better be good." Yes, their lines are as dry as ever, but they're supposed to be just that. Otherwise, it wouldn't have been Gears of War.

The second part that makes the game so good, is the soundtrack. I can't help it. Steve Jablonsky nails the music, and makes the game as epic as it can get.

The third part....

F*** yeah, Carmine!! My vote counted for something!

So yeah, to sum it up...
The story is okay - it's an action game, so not much is expected. But action you get - and it's awesome. The characters are cool. The graphics are amazing. The music is fantastic! And my favourite part of it all - Beast Mode and I get to play female characters! Queen Myrrah ftw!

I'm a Gears of War fan now. Since yesterday, I have gotten 26 achievements on this game. More than half. So I've updated my Achievement Progress page and the My Videogames page. I have both the two first games. Guess what I'll be playing until Modern Warfare 3 is released?

Modern Warfare 2 - Complete!

I'm a gamer, and my favourite game must be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Simply because it was the first FPS I ever tried, and the reason I play FPS today.

The title does lie a little, though. What I mean is that I have finally reached 100% on this game. When the news of Modern Warfare 3 was revealed, my goal was to complete MW2 before the release of MW3. And now I have. 50 out of 50 Achievements, and 1000 out of 1000 Gamerscore. F*** yeah!

But I still haven't completed the game. I'm only on 5th prestige out of 10 on the multiplayer, so I do have some more hours ahead. And to think of all the titles and emblems I have to earn as well, I'm looking at a lot more hours. Not only a few. But that's good!

I'm only missing 5 Achievements on Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare as well. But despite me trying, I don't think I'll be able to complete those before MW3. COD4 is insane on Veteran difficulty! Or am I the only one thinking that?

Oh, well. It wouldn't be fun if it was too easy either.

Boba Fett accessories in the mail today!

Such a wonderful day it is, when I open the mailbox and find unexpected goods inside. Package from the States, once again, and accessories for my Boba Fett.

Cape, Wookie braids and spats, all ROTJ, all made by woodman on The Dented Helmet. Perfection is the key word here, I'd say. I fell completely in love with the Wookie braids. And I'll let the pictures explain why:

One step closer to a complete Boba. But still a long way to go.

Take care!

My body craves more ink!

... and in a month, that craving will be fulfilled.

It has now been two months since I took my first tattoo. She said that there are few who plan their next tattoo while under the needle of their first one. I did. And today, I went to the local tattoo shop to ask for prices. There were two I considered, so I asked the prices on both of them.

Let's just say I went home with a big smile on my face and a card in my hand that says the date and time of my next appointment. October 6th, at 12:00. Yes!

And about the prices over there... They are so awesome. I won't be walking out of there with one new tattoo that day, but two! I'm getting both tattoos for the price I thought one of them would cost. Once again; YES!!

And the geek in me will stay with me forever.
In ink.
On my hip.

Boba Fett helmet in CC

A couple of days ago, I picked up something beautiful from the post office. I'll let the pictures do the talking:


This one approves!

The helmet is a cold cast made by Asok on The Dented Helmet. Fantastic helmet, and a great guy to do business with.

Can't wait to get all the paints and equipment needed so I can start painting this baby!

MW3 Multiplayer

Yes, I am one of those COD-geeks who just can't wait for the next COD game! And in this case, I'm even more psyched, as Modern Warfare 2 is my favourite FPS overall. And this is the sequel. Naturally, I'm very psyched.

A few hours ago, there was a "leak" on the Multiplayer part of the game. A new game mode, called Kill Confirmed, which introduces enemy dog tags that you will have to collect - and thus preventing the all time favourite camping trip. Personally, I think it's a good idea. I really liked that part in Crysis 2, so it will be interesting to see how they've managed to work it out in COD. The team with the most dog tags at the end of the match wins? That'd be my guess.

Read more about this leak here.

And now, a few hours after this leak, we get the Modern Warfare 3 - Multiplayer World Premiere trailer. And I have to say, I don't think this game will disappoint me at all. There are a few things I hope for in the game, which has to do with the campaign, characters, voice actors and all of that, but I guess those things will be revealed as I play the game. Unless there are more leaks in the coming month. But this Multiplayer trailer is more or less epic. It shows us a whole lot of things, my favourite being the part where we see that Snipers counts as secondary weapons (plus the sniper shown is Dragunov - finally!).

Which means I can have my M4 and a Dragunov in the same class.
Assault and Sniper.
In the same class.

I'm so psyched!

Let's do this!

I do this all the time. I make a blog or a website, then delete it because I lose interest or no one reads it or something like that. I now have two Norwegian blogs, with close to no readers, and then I'm making this one.


I have no idea.

Maybe because I miss writing English? Yes, I think that would be the main reason here. I miss writing in English. Plus, I happen to have some foreign friends as well. My foreign friends can't read Norwegian, but my Norwegian friends can read English. So there.

Now, this will be a blog about everything and nothing all at once. Like it says in the description. I'm creative, so you might find some pictures of things I make. I'm into music, movies, books and gaming, so there will be something about that too. And then there's my every day life. Not so interesting, but I'll probably blog a little bit about that as well. We'll see.

Or maybe this will be yet another blog that gets deleted without too much in it.

Oh well.
