It’s Been A While!

Six months to be exact, well it will be six months in two days. My last post was in December 23rd. Whew. Doesn’t seem like that. How’s everybody been? Alive, well? Pondering your very plain of existence? Totally know the feeling. In any case many of you, I hope, may be wondering about The Haphazard and all of its lovely content, or me, whichever.

In any case, I ended up watching a lot of TV shows, anime, movies. I also found a wide array of new music, some older, some newer. From some wicked heavy metal to some cool chillstep.

Needless to say, I should’ve been updating more and more often. I apologize indeed.

Somehow, I am going to try to update much more frequently. Both my video channel and my little real estate of space, right here on WP.

For now, you can expect at least a blog entry per week. There will probably be one or two extra, who knows.

Again, I apologize for the long lapse in content. I hope those of you who continue to visit my site will continue to read my blogs and do enjoy you days.

I’ll see you all soon.

The Haphazard Has Turned Two! – Happy Birthday!

I can’t believe it has already been two years since I had started this blog. What makes it more amazing is that I completely forgot about it. I forgot my own blogs birthday. Wow, I might make a really bad parent. :/ Regardless, It has been an unusual two years, and I believe that The Haphazard has earned quite a bit of a facelift. I am currently working on something amazing. At least I think so. I know I haven’t been blogging as much I should be. But I will be doing something about that.

For those of you all who Have been here since the start. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It has been good talking about all the stuff I like and I hope to continue it. Please if you feel the need to share this site with everybody in the world, please do. ^_^

There’s not much more I can say. But I do thank you alot.

Protest! Anti-SOPA And Anti-PROTECTIP! Protest!

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) — together with the corresponding Senate Protect IP Act (PIPA) — is a proposed piece of legislation intended to curb online piracy. As the bills are currently written, they gives both the U.S. government and copyright holders the authority to seek court orders against foreign-operated websites associated with infringing, pirating or counterfeiting intellectual property. If either bill becomes law, it could drastically change the way the Internet operates.

It sounds nice, but in actualization, its not. All this means is that based on accusation alone, hundreds of thousands of sites will be pulled off the internet, and as the above stated, it will alter the internet for all eternity, in addition to what it says, there is more to the bill that what meets the eye. They want to CENSOR Everything!

So for all of you all who are wondering, I am not saying anything about priacy. I understand the music and film industries standing on this matter. However as Mark Zuckerberg Stated here, Congress needs to fight this properly. They shouldn’t attempt to remove freedom of press, or freedom of speech, after all, how are sites such as WordPress, Wikipedia, Facebook (and by extension all social media sites) and Youtube (and similar sites), what about that!? All sites are in jeopardy. Not only sharing sites but all sites. Do you think that this is the way to go? You censor the entire internet!?

I have one thing to say. If you regulate the internet, then you censor the internet, and allow what YOU (and by you I mean the super rich corporate giants as well as the government) want to see. Do you want to government to tell you what you can and can’t do? What they are doing essentially is running a dictatorship, just the thing is, its on the internet.  If you think it doesn’t make sense, think a bit again and do your research, look at the global laws. They are all doing the same thing. If they regulate the internet, then you lose more than you think. Oh and by the way, if you haven’t seen it, here’s a few things that was posted on WordPress.com

  • In the U.S. our legal system maintains that the burden of proof is on the accuser, and that people are innocent until proven guilty. This tenet seems to be on the chopping block when it comes to the web if these bills pass, as companies could shut down sites based on accusation alone.
  • Laws are not like lines of PHP; they are not easily reverted if someone wakes up and realizes there is a better way to do things. We should not be so quick to codify something this far-reaching.
  • The people writing these laws are not the people writing the independent web, and they are not out to protect it. We have to stand up for it ourselves.

They are quite right, the internet is the outlet for millions of people out in the world. It is the source of revenue for millions, this problem is affecting everyone on a global scale, The internet is responsible for hundreds of thousands of jobs if not millions. We need to do something, we need to fight for the internet. Internet must remain a neutral place for all to come and to enjoy. The internet should remain free and open to everyone, everywhere.

Year In Review – Well My Year Anyways

New Years 2012 Wallpapers

So while all are busy with the New Years Prep, like you know, getting drunk and making stupid resolutions that we both know you ain’t gonna keep, I am busy with basically nothing. 🙂 Sounds fun doesn’t it? Well it ain’t. This year was quite a year, and I know you aren’t here to listen to me babble about random nonsense that have affected me in my life… oh wait 😀

But instead of talking about how much my year sucked or how much it was awesome, How about world events that you know, helped me be 🙂 For Starters.

Steve Jobs Died.

Steve Jobs With iPhoneSteve Jobs With iPadYeah, this dude was freaking epic and one hell of a bad ass visionary. Think You Can beat him? Fuck No. Don’t Dream Hater. But yeah, Apple is without one of its founding members, and basically the guy that started it all (Don’t Worry Steve Wozniak, you still awesome too, you after all are a part of apple.) I must say though, the passing of Steve Jobs was just way too traumatizing man. I mean he was awesome. He made some of the most epic technology on the planet, and he revolutionized industries (yes he did, Hello? iTunes.). He was awesome and deserves more than a thumbs up. I don’t Know how, but hey who knows.  Rest In Peace Steve Jobs.

StarCraft II

Starcraft 2

Fucking awesome. Words Can’t begin to describe how epic this shit was. I mean come on. Have you seen this shit? Plus. The Bankroll for some these tournaments. StarCraft II was worth the 10 year wait. Well 11 in my case considering I had to upgrade my computer to play it. 🙂

Bleach

Bleach Wallpaper - Ichigo VastoLordNot the household detergent. The anime. I finally got up to date about bleach and I must say, worth the like 100 GBs of Hard Disk space. Amazing production meets epic storyline meet awesome-ness. Bleach Started out epic and continues to be epic. Btw I like AMVs 😀 Looking forward to more FullBring-ing it in 2012.

Disney

All Disney Cartoon CharactersIt’s sad that I watch Disney. But its the only channel that, in the night, doesn’t show horror trailers. So yeah I pretty much know every single Disney person there….

Nickelodeon

Same thing as Disney. And besides its fun. 😀

New Computer & Laptop

Image representing AMD as depicted in CrunchBase

So I have been saving for the past year and I bought my computer early this year. Its pretty awesome. It does Music Production pretty well. It needs some more RAM and a better processor if I intend to pursue my 3D animations. This computer just ain’t cutting it. But luckily the mother board maxes out at 16 GB RAM, so I can slaughter that 3D-isms 😀 However it can only support AMD processors,and If I recall right it only supports a duo-core. Don’t quote me though, aren’t sure yet.

Personal Life

Still Non-existent. :/ Awkward.

Web Sites

I had to retire one of my long-standing web sites this year, it was quite heart retching. It was doing so well as well. It was getting close to 1000 unique hits per month. and epic achievement if You ask me. I however didn’t have the money to afford an upgrade. However I have found a new host that can accept a form of payment that I can provide. So keep a look out next year.

Music

Music VectorI need new ones. Found some good bands. But I need to expand my horizon. I have, however been working on my music. You know the whole production thing. I think I’m doing much better than the previous year. But only time will tell won’t it? 🙂

In conclusion

See I told you I was boring didn’t I? Why did you read till here? (If You Did, thank you) At the very most, this year, like most people’s, wasn’t too bad nor was it too good. But tomorrow (and in some places in the world, in which case, today) is a new day, a new year, make your resolutions as you see fit, and you try your best to stay true to it. So my friends, I wish you all a good year ahead, Dream Big, Work Hard. As I wrote this I forgot a ton of things. So If I remember them, look out for another post like next…..year? Oh And New Years Wallpapers 🙂
