Someone recommend me some new music.

I'm running out of things to listen to. I'm thinkin it's time i got some more screamo. I was considering Bring me the horizon, but i decided to gather peoples opinions first. I figure, I'll listen to some of any bands that are recommended, and any individual tracks, and anything i like I'll showcase in a post in a few weeks time. Anything rock/punk/emo would be appreciated. I'm kinda over dance music and dubstep for now.

As a sample of what I'm looking for, enjoy Not good enough for truth or cliche by an excellent band called Escape the fate.

Strange dreams...

Seems they've been going around a lot lately... A fair number of people have been mentioning them. Maybe the government's been putting rainbows in our water again. Or LSD. Who cares.

Here's a sample of my recent ones:
A few nights ago, there was one where Emily and I had a competition to see who could give themselves piercings the fastest. We had like 10-12 spots we had to pierce, and who ever finished first was the winner. Catch was, we had to use small hand drills to make the holes with. I mean, we literally had to drill holes in our own bodies. Not even like "Hold this trigger" drilling, we had to wind the drills ourselves. I think i got through two of them before i gave up. At this point, Em had done like 7. Congratulations Em. Even in my dreams, you beat me at piercings.

There was one the other night that made me sad when i woke up. The start bit's confusing as hell though. I forget why, but there was some argument between people i know, and it was decided that the only way to resolve it was to have a drag race down my street. I don't know who most of the people driving were, there was like 7 of them, but i know my mates Jody and Kieran from the city were there, as well as Kristy Collyer, the big sister of Nic, my friend who passed away last year. That was weird. Anyway, they started in my driveway (driving things like utes, and white vans and other weird shit like that) and blazed out onto my street and off into the distance. Then the place was crawling with cops and ambo's, even though i didn't see anyone crash. So everyone decided to go inside. Then the dream branched off, and Nic (who inexplicably was still alive; even my subconscious misses him) was staying with my family for like a month. The rest of the dream was like, us playing guitar and xbox and shit. Felt so depressed when i woke up... = \

I also had one last night, where i had a weird dream i couldn't remember, woke up, and tried explaining it to my sister. In my dream. Was very confused when i woke up for real, lol.

Fuck yeah 4 months off

Best holiday ever. Made even better by the fact that i had (probably less than) half as much class-time leading up to it then i did during school. Uni is amazing. But i have NOTHING to do these holidays. It's kinda boring. Anyway, in other news, I didn't pass maths this semester. But i might get given a pass conceded if my marks are high enough. I'm really hoping i do. So don't wanna repeat... = \

As for other news, i don't really have much. Nothing's really happenin in my life. Been hanging out with friends a bit, seeing Carla pretty much every day and spending large amounts of time on my pc.
Life's a bit dull.

I like knives. They're pretty fucking awesome. For those that don't know (but i think I've mentioned it yesno?) I've started doing martial arts. Today was the most kickass lesson ever. Me and rob (because we were the only two from our group who went this week) spent an hour wrestling with wooden knives, trying to slash the other across the arms, wrist, body, anywhere basically. I learned that I'm pretty damn good with a knife. I scored a wounding blow on rob like 70-80% of the time. It was so much fun. We'd circle around each other, one of us would leap in with a slash, and they'd either score a hit, or we'd grapple for a min or two before someone got a slice across the arm. So much fun.

In commemoration of this, I'm going to give a short demonstration of the style of knives i would enjoy owning.

This is a millitary issue combat knife. Double edged, steel tang, med lenght and reversible grip. This would be good in a fight. 

A bowie knife. God they're sexy. Just LOOK AT IT! *drools*

Found this in google. Full finger cover (which would give you good control, but stops you reversing the grip properly), and just a nice looking blade. Looks single edged, but that's not too bad.

No idea what this is. But i like it. Probably would be heavy though.

Another military knife. Blackened blade stops light reflecting and giving you away. Tang's a bit small, but i think this was meant for stabbing not slashing.

So if anyone want to get me a knife for my 19th? I will appreciate it. I promise. Get me more then one. I promise i won't go on a murderous rampage. Much.

The music industry is thoroughly deserving of a cuntpunt.

Seriously. First they inflict Faggot Beaver on us, and now this shit? This is Willow smith. Daughter of Woll Smoth. And i highly recommend you don't watch the video, because it is truly that awful. I warned you.

Embed disabled, so here's the link. Don't say i dind't warn you.

But wtf? When did being 12 years old become cool? These kids should still be shitting themselves over their upcoming puberty, and realising that the opposite gender is much more entertaining then tv. Not inflicting their preteen screeches on the rest of humanity. And to all the 14 year old girls out there, if i ever hear anyone singing Justin McShitface ever again, the singer is getting repeatedly gutterstomped, and having a wire brush rammed down their throat. Try singing after that. 

[EDIT - Fixed the dead link]

Game Review #2 - Ghost hacker.

Possibly the best tower defence game I've ever played. For starters, it has a plot. WOW! And a good one as well. With plot twists, and a couple good knives into the spinal chord. In a flash game. Mindgasm. Also, the game play is amazing. Strategic planning is mandatory for success. Most of the later levels require several attempts, and a lot of experimentation with tower placement and upgrades before finding a combination that works. Great variety in enemies, and the tactics required to beat them.

And easily the best aspect of the game. Well, the best two. There's no money penalty for selling a tower. Instead, any money you earn in game is stockpiled outside of your available cash and fed in at 1 unit/second. So selling things leaves you disadvantaged, but not crippled. And finally, all towers are customisably upgradeable. You buy a tower, and it has upgrade slots where you put benifits like splash, r.o.f., range and cooler things. If you like TD's i highly recommend this.

Graphics - 5/5 - quite appropriate given the game, and didn't lag my computer.
Gameplay - 5/5 - Best. TD. EVAR.
Replayability - 2/5 - After finishing a level, there's not much point going back to it. Unless you're a perfectionist. Like me. 
Story - 4/5 - Entertaining, and some clever twists.
Overall - 8/10
