Rating: 3.33 - Link to this Article 12-05-2009 Deflowering of a Morlock View Webcam for 12-05-2009 24 COMMENTS
The Xbox collective gains another victim today as I loaned my extender Xbox to the Morlock in anticipation of his delayed Elite. After indoctrinating him into the cult and dutifully avoiding the side effects such as girlfriend desertion and wallet lightening he was up and running. I managed to spend over an hour deflowering him while Erin looked on sadly, knowing her share of the smokestack and siren maintenance was about to increase exponentially.

I feel like I've lost all my innocense.
MorlockPrime
Already playing Games during his lunch break I applaud the quick and creepy speediness to your addiction Mr. Prime. Welcome to the club.
Stavos
Oh god.. his virus did indeed spread to my friend request on Xbox live... it has begun!
Excelcier
Yes, it's beautiful! Need more points!
MorlockPrime
Awww they're so cute when they're n00bs. Morlocky it's called Achievements" not just points. So inocent.....
Stavos
If I end you, will i get more points?
MorlockPrime
Still didn't learn did you? Yes if you end me you'll get "Achievement points" ...slow Morlock
Stavos
Ok, i'm on my way over to your house (you still live in the shack surrounding a shiny xbox right?) to claim your life and my "points"!
MorlockPrime
I'm a little disappointed there wasn't more anti-canada in these comments.
MorlockPrime
Canada sucks? That better?
Stavos
Ahh, i feel at home again.
MorlockPrime
(insert eye rolling)
Excelcier
Damn it! Ron is eye rolling in the hopes of dethroning my second place comment score! Where is my xbox achievement for redethroning him?
MorlockPrime
5G – DETRHONE A CANADIAN (what you were expecting more points? C'mon it's a Canadian you’re lucky you get an additional 4G!)
Stavos
Wow, i'm surprised I got any. I would expect a -20 for allowing him to dethrone me.
MorlockPrime
Nope Achievement points are restricted to USC and cannot be converted due to Canada’s ability to prove it's a real nation. (NOTE: In order to become a nation you must have an actual leader living on your soil and 1 military jet.)
Stavos
If only they could find some way to turn their hockey sticks into weapons. What a terror they would prove to be. If they were fighting a war on the north pole. Canadians and Santa unite!
MorlockPrime
Two fictional characters slapping woodened sticks wrapped with duct tape on a glacier c'mon Morlock that's a bit farfetched. Now go fetch me some eloi fingers with dipping sauce it’s overcast and the sun won’t be seen for many months.
Stavos
Come now Stavos. The sun is gone, possibly forever. It's the time of the Morlock. Go and fetch me some people for eating. Remember the order of acceptableness: Eloi from Farmington better than Eloi from Redford better than Everyone else alive better than canadians)
MorlockPrime
Don't Canadians taste like bacon? If so your equation is flawed.
Stavos
An oft believed misconception. Actually it's the North Poleans that taste like bacon. The Canadians just capture them with their hockey sticks, marinate them, then say they're Canadian bacon.
MorlockPrime
I've also heard Canadians use hockey sticks to aid them in standing & walking since their brains haven't evolved the ability to stand up straight yet. True?
Stavos
Not just that! They also use it to help chew bubble gum. Not while they're walking of course. They can't do two things at once!
MorlockPrime
Now I know what Commander Ryker and a Morlock would talk about.

Solid Gold Tonight marks the day the hardest achievement I've ever worked for finally unlocked. Presently only 64 / 9,561 gamers have it, and after 80 hours of grind it's clear why. For 2 weeks I was a slave to my Xbox, starting a race and then enjoying 15-30 minutes of life before being called back to start another. It ran at work, at home, and in my car to maximize available time investment. On a positive note, the sad reality that is my life has come to light, and I've now sworn off attacking these kinds of achievements. I stuck it to the sick bastard that included it in Forza 3 in the hopes the owner would retain the copy for years, and even put it up on eBay for good measure. It's clear I have a sickness that needs to be addressed. Ignore the fact that I'm cranking through Band Hero as I write this.
User Comments for 11-29-2009:
Well you're only the 64th person out of 9,561 people on the true achievements site, not on xbox. I'm sure there's more people that beat it. Sorry to steal your thunder. Good job?
Stavos
One day I will join you sir. Not in your addiction, but in your ownership of yet another M$ money sucking box.
MorlockPrime
Ok, i've joined you on both accounts. Damn you!

Coast to Coast Party Several months ago, I dared to dream of a day when Myrn and Joseph, two friends flung to opposite ends of the United States, would join me in an Xbox Live party. Tonight, that dream finally came true, with a genuine coast to coast party taking place. An attempt was made to play 1 vs 100, the only game we all had available, but mostly it was a glorious hour of utter nonsense and shenanigans far surpassing my expectations. Now our childhood dreams of killing zombies together will finally come to pass.
User Comments for 11-24-2009:
Ah-ha! The identity of the mysterious Scheezo is confirmed!
Duane
Felt like old times back in the late 90s. I for one approve this "No xbox left behind" program Brad created.
Stavos
There's more where that came from!
Scheezo
I really don't want to comment, but I need 9 more.

Type EcoBoost With my new car delayed indefinitely, I decided it was time to step it up and join the Honda Civic i-VTEC Type R crowd. Instead of getting a new car, I just slapped an emblem from a new car on my trunklid. Problem solved. While my boosted engine may qualify the emblem, breaking the rules for Type R branding, I still plan to rev my engine furiously when overmatched at a stoplight to compensate.
User Comments for 11-23-2009:
I'm still waiting for you to put a ferrari emblem on your cougay.
MorlockPrime
Doesn't EcoBoost use more efficient and higher-power turbos instead of belt driven ancient technology? Accuracy fail ;-)
Duane
Badge whore
Stavos
how much was it? I want one.
enorym
By the way you can still get your focus st here in the states. Its just called a volvo c30. http://www.volvocars.com/us/models/c30/Pages/default.aspx AND its a lot less than what an RS would cost you but you could order up the revo knuckle and other parts from the rs probably from a ford dealer or order them online. http://www.volvocars.com/us/models/c30/Pages/default.aspx 26k for the R not bad. Same engine, chassis, but little different on the body styling. I like it.
enorym
BOGUS!
Excelcier
Wonder if there will be one at the Autoshow??

Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 11-15-2009 RAID Fail Imminent View Webcam for 11-15-2009 6 COMMENTS
RAID Fail Today I was greeted with a “Drive Failure(0)" alert as I booted up my main machine. Despite the warning, I booted up with no apparent issues. Curious, I started up the Intel Matrix Storage Manager to discover one of my four year old RAID drives was finally showing it’s age. I can only guess the error in question is a SMART alert signaling impending doom for one of my 4 drives. Daily backups from my home server eliminate any concern, so the mystery is afoot as to when it will actually fail. With SSDs still not affordable, I’ll probably just dial back to a 3 drive configuration and make due with 74GB less space.
User Comments for 11-15-2009:
Told ya to run your machine 24.7 without standby mode! Atleast you didn't loose anything so we can all laugh at this later. LMAORAID1 FAIL BBQ time!
Stavos
ah the power of technology.
Candy
Clearly RAID issues are traveling in a South east direction. Stavos, you're next!
MorlockPrime
Good thing I'm directly east. However thats bad New for Mr. Hart.
Stavos
Directly east according to what map?
MorlockPrime
Why don't you answer me!@?!??!?!?

Achievement Unlocked During my visit to Enorym, it was Philippine tradition that the guest get the best bed in the house. Unfortunately that was the same bed Enorym and his wife perform ciotus, so I declined after using the "Guest is always right" rule to override the bed rule. My recent entrapment of Enorym with an Xbox had him feeling a need to equalize the gift defecit refusing to accept his participation in Xbox parties as more than sufficient repayment. The resulting (attempt) to gift back yielded this jewel created by Stavos. It's nod to achivement point addiction, of which I suffer, and not so subtle gay reference immediately followed by an awkward "not gay" proclamation makes it an instant classic.
User Comments for 11-12-2009:
It didn't make it to a t-shirt due to copyright laws but It did make it's way unto a blog. The legal system has no sense of humor, which is the downful of socity, which is scheduled for destruction by 2012.
Stavos
Oh well was worth a shot.
enorym
Perhaps you could start awarding people real life achievements just like this all the time?
MorlockPrime
I asked him if he wanted to make a Real Life Achievements app for facebook that creates an image of the logo but he just ignored me.
Stavos
wow is the only response I'm leaving...
Candy
I am painfully disturbed.

Rating: 4 - Link to this Article 11-04-2009 Frost Light Go View Webcam for 11-04-2009 10 COMMENTS
Frost Warning Every year the world holds it's breath, wondering when my frost warning light in my Cougar will illuminate. Well today is that day, and on a positive note, it's the latest it's turned on since I started keeping track. Whether this means we're in for a mild winter, or if it's another sign of global warming I can't say, but I did exercise caution for possible ice on the road as my manual dictated despite the bright sun and lack of any kind of moisture.
User Comments for 11-04-2009:
This is like the pre-groundhog's day for winter. If Brad see's his frost warning light on the 4th of November it will be a bad winter. No frost light... you get the idea.
Stavos
My frost warning turned on for the first time today as well. GET OUT OF MY CAR'S HEAD!
MorlockPrime
My car eats frost for breakfast, they’re grrreat!.... Oh wait your not talking about cereal?
Stavos
Let's be honest Stavos, your car eats fruit loops.
MorlockPrime
So my car eats... Jetta's?
Stavos
I said fruit loops. Not gay cars.
MorlockPrime
Yu missed years 05 and 06. Not having that information has made my life less complete.
Keith
O yeah well my internal warning light went off about 2 weeks earlier than this because I totally love getting up at the buttcrack of dawn when there is actually frost, and ice on the cars window in which when I'm running late I get to scrape off, while you wake up to sunlight and dry grounds...how is this fair?
CANDY
You get home earlier and have nice several hr layover's which you use for naps. We dont.
Stavos
what you wanna cookie?

Halloween Bowling With Senator Kelleys house cleaned for showings, his annual event was transferred to the same bowling alley Enorym had his birthday party 6 years ago. While Enorym has since moved on to California, Whiney Ho and Schwartz returned, along with Tigerbomb, Gina, Morlock and Arizona. A generous helping of $1.75 games and $2 beer contributed to the perfect mix of intoxication and shenanigans that carried over into the after party. Fun was mandated and confirmed to have occured for everyone involved, despite a showing of the crappiest Halloween movie ever. Thanks to the Senator and Lisa for all the planning, and to everyone else who showed up and prevented me from spending Halloween on my Xbox.
User Comments for 10-31-2009:
The evening was indeed a blast! I'm glad the old crew + new crew could make it. I do take full responsibility for the movie. I'll screen the next one before hand.
Stavos
Yes, instead of Brad spending the night on his xbox, we all did.
MorlockPrim
No one wore a MYRN mask.... what a shame.
R10T
They were fresh out, the closest we could find was the Hillary Clinton mask. Check out the album.
Stavos
Wish I could if stayed to see the pointless plotless movie but unfortunately I chose to be sick instead..huh who knew?

Rating: 3.8 - Link to this Article 10-29-2009 Focus RS is Mine! View Webcam for 10-29-2009 5 COMMENTS
Focus RS Thanks to Forza 3, I finally own a Focus RS of my very own. While it's only a virtual version, it helps fill the hole created by the announcement it will not be arriving in North America in the real world. Camping trips, picnics, and long relaxing drives are all planned around the tracks in the game using my unequalled imagination. I've even set aside some time for Lisa to tell me I'm driving too fast and have some syrup of ipecac to simulate her motion sickness. NFS: SHIFT had a nice Focus ST but without the bigger engine and revoknuckle it just wasn't the same. Yet another reason to never leave my basement has arrived.
User Comments for 10-29-2009:
I can't believe a slightly modded Focus RS can hang with a slightly modded TransAm, I hope they don't make it for the US, I want the fastest car!
Stavos
I love to tease here because I DID get to drive a real one! I even took it home one night about 6 months ago. HAHAHA
Excelcier
Did you feel like a mailman driving on the right side?
Stavos
I prefer Wrong Hand drive.
enorym
Your love for the Focus will never be returned!
