One of my good friends, Jesse Fearfield, is getting close to releasing his new musical album, but he needs help. Below is a link to his gofundme page. Consider donating something. He has a link to his newest single, “Forget” there as well. It’s pretty darn good, if I do say so myself. It would mean the world to him if you would even go listen to the song. Share it with your friends and family.
Thank you very much for taking the time to peek at the guy’s stuff. Not like that, you perv.

Frustrations with Microsoft

Hi, thanks for visiting Xbox Support! I’m Ellaine.

Me

Howdy

Ellaine

Hello there, how are you doing today aside from your concern?

Me

I’m alright I suppose

Ellaine

I see.. good to know that, by the way, Just to make sure I’m getting the right concern here, you have a concern with regards to a disc game is that correct?

Me

A multi disc game, Mass Effect 3, specifically
I wanted to play through the trilogy, in prep for the new one in March
They’re backwards compatible. so playing them on my Xbox One is awesome.

Ellaine

I see.. thanks for confirming Could you please tell me more about your concern so that i can address you the proper resolution regarding this concern.?
Me

When it tells me to Insert Disc 2, it hangs until I eject disc one. When I insert disc 2, my xbox One doesn’t recognize the disc
I can’t play the game at all
Everything I’ve seen online tells me that this issue was fixed a year and a half ago, but my console didn’t get that memo
So if I could get some sort of fix, that would be lovely
Ellaine

I see.. thanks for elaborating your concern here, don’t worry i will provide you all the information and details you need that will help us in isolating this issue, i will do my best to help you with this.
Just a heads up, I may ask a lot of questions with regards to this concern so that we can identify the issue and for us to be able to provide you the right resolution regarding this matter, would that be okay with you?
Me
Yes
Ellaine

Thanks you! by the way, may i know if you able to play other disc on another console?
Me

I don’t have another console, so I have no idea
I can play Disc 1, but that’s not the full game
Ellaine

What about the other disc you have? were you able to try them and see and if they can be readable?
Me

It doesn’t recognize it as the game.
Ellaine

Just to clarify, other disc game cant be recognize as well?
Me

Just disc one.
Ellaine

I see.. please don’t mind me asking, do you have another disc game aside form your Mass Effect 3 game?
Me

Not any with multiple discs
Ellaine
Just to clarify, no other disc is playable as well is that correct?
Me

No, just the second disc. I can play every other disc, except the second disc of this specific game. I’m not sure if I can make this any more clear.

Ellaine
Okay! If we could begin, what console are you having issues with?

Me
My Xbox One, as I have stated previously.

Ellaine
I see… Does any other game encounter this issue?

It was at this point that I closed the chat with this Microsoft employee, as I was going to throttle her with my mind.

Moored in Silence

On this day, seventy five years ago, the men and women of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, were attacked by the air force of the Empire of Japan.
Kamikaze pilots slammed into the naval ships and tore through the ranks of the US Navy. A surprise attack, at five minutes to eight in the morning, a horrific cacophony erupted.  For an impossibly long one hundred ten minutes, two-thousand three-hundred thirty-five people needlessly lost their lives, in what we’d come to call the American entrance to World War II.
As the ships sank into the depths, and the fires raged on, the attack was finished at a quarter to ten in the morning. The attack devastated the country, and thus thrust us headlong into a war with Japan.
Take a moment of silence, in memory of those who died on this fateful day. Let not their memories be moored in silence.

Trump Card

In lieu of the American Election results, I feel I should come forward and apologize.
No, I didn’t vote for him. But I feel like I have, because I didn’t do enough to stop him.
We, as a whole, failed the world by electing a human being that absolutely scares the ever living crap out of those with the ability to think. How could we be so blinded. How many of us said “There’s no way he can win. He’s outrageous!” He is a despicable human being.
Now he’s the leader of the most powerful country. We gave him our country on a silver platter.
I am so sorry. We shat the bed, now we must lie in it. Sorry you all have the smell.
When did we become so ignorant? Is this what we deserve? This election has been the most stressful that I have ever seen. I joked about it being like choosing Poisoned Food (Clinton) and A Gaping Head Wound (Trump). The worst part is that it may be over quickly. This is a man who talks nonchalantly about sexual assault as easily as he speaks about using nuclear ordinance in the Middle East. Whose ties with Vladimir Putin are no longer just a joke. This is an individual who will set the progress of the United States back 50 years. There’s going to be blood. It’s scary.
The best case scenario would be if he’s the most boring president. If he sits there and does nothing of any note. He said that he wants to be The People’s President. Yeah. You’re the amalgamation of fear and hatred. You’re the single patron saint of bigotry.
This sets a dangerous precedent for America. I used to be proud to be American  I’m ashamed of my countrymen. How could we let this happen?
I realize I am not the most politically savvy. I know I have the debating prowess of a rock. Maybe it won’t be as bad as it all seems.
Maybe this is how Democracy ends; With thunderous applause.

Insomnia

Can’t sleep, another night draining
Thoughts abound and voices aren’t waning
Trusted words kept, but doubts creeping
As I lie here and type this, while quietly weeping

It’s nobody’s fault; It’s all in my head
No use in wondering what’s already said
Don’t wish to crumble; For help is still here
Even if I’ve no courage to be clear

A Poem

A nice Autumn day
Freshly home from a ride
I locked up the bike
And then wandered inside

Making some lunch
When something occurred
No more construction?
Least, not that I heard

I turned from the table
The plates made a clatter
I raced to the window
To see what’s the matter

“Oh you there! Young lad!”
I shouted to a boy
He didn’t quite hear me
Was absorbed in his toy

“I say, you urchin!
“Is that racket quite done?”
He finally looked over
Stripped away from his fun

“Indeed, why yes, milord!”
Said the happy young teen
When I had realized
It is twenty sixteen

“Why are we talking like this?”
I shouted right back
He looked at his feet
and said “Oh what the heck?”

And so this ridiculous
Poem shall cease
You’ve all lost The Game
So there’s that at least!

Ha ha ha ha
