With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

Poetry for the Win!
Posted on Wednesday, May 7 2008 @ 14:55:54 Eastern

Hey, I won something!

Well, sort of at least. I essentially was featured in my schools literary magazine, a lot of poems and short stories, essays, photos, etc. and my poem "Revolt" was voted "Best in show" by the people who made the magazine!

 

I posted it here before, but i'm going to do it again, tell me what you think!

Revolt   Take up arms! Join our cause! Leave your thoughts with little pause to change our world we need violence, to quell the discontent and silence. Let our voices be heard, joined together, our actions judged for the better so change is brought and tyranny destroyed, so we can live! We must deploy our might collected, orderly, yet strong. To fight it out, victory or be gone! Against oppression, corruption and greed, To fulfill our passions, wants and needs. We fight with force, with tooth and nail, we resist their ways, but to no avail. The cycle continues, in ebb and flow as the tyrants sword swings the final blow, our hopes dashed, our leaders maimed, they take more from us, keep us constrained, with every passing second, minute and hour they regain what they lost; unquestionable power. But ideas never die, immune to flames and steel, they live on again, to never bend or kneel. To the powers that grasp us by the neck that drive us to chaos, insanity, heck; they control us for as long as they can, because the power of one, be woman or man can break the hold across our throat, and start again, the long revolt.

So pissed
Posted on Wednesday, April 30 2008 @ 13:37:48 Eastern

I hate computers sometimes!

 

I just spent the last few hours finishing off the final few pages of my thesis paper on Pre-Colonial African Slavery, only to have the computer freeze on me before I can save!

I lost six pages, including the conclusion and the source list.I was so mad, because I had to rewrite the whole thing AGAIN, taking another hour and a half to write it!

I hate technology when it ****s up on you, especially when it's an important paper like this. A good grade on this paper would mean I can graduate basically, meaning it's my undergrad thesis.

Funny, but I have about 15 other essays to write too....****.

Working hard...yet hardly working
Posted on Monday, March 31 2008 @ 21:31:24 Eastern

Want to see the **** I have been doing for the past three months?! No???

Tough!

Ok, I am a bit tired, so sorry for the cynical stuff lately, but this research project is so ridiculously off putting it's not even funny. Here is the outline for the major paper. I say major because it will be roughly 30-40 pages in length, so do not let the amount of information here fool you.

Introduction Overview of African Slavery. Definition of African Slavery. Concept of Ideological Frameworks.

 

      2.     Kinship

Definition of Kinship. Kinship ideology. Practices and procedures. The economic effects of Kinship.    Pawnship Definition of Pawnship. Pawnship ideology. Pawnship practices and procedures. The economics and effects of Pawnship vs Kinship.    Muslim Law Slavery under Muslim Law and the Qur’an. Ideology of Slavery in Islamic societies. Procedures and practices under Muslim Law. Slave roles within Muslim Law. Comparisons to Pawnship and Kinship. Treatment of women.   Other Types of Slavery Self-Slaves. Debt-Slavery. Subordinate tribesmen.   General Practices within the Slavery system. Overview of information. Purchasing of slaves. Slave hierarchies. Slaves as wealth. Slave Roles. Tribal Rituals and slaves. Housing and treatment of slaves.     Centralized vs Non-Centralized Societies in Africa Overview of Centralized and Non-Centralized societies. Importance to slavery in Africa. Centralized Society practices. Non-Centralized Society practices. Influence on the Slave Trade.   The Slave Trade Within Pre-Colonial Africa Overview of the Slave Trade. Overview of the geographic locations of the Trade. The trade routes. Slave Raiding. Economic estimates and effects. Influence on the Atlantic Slave Trade   9.       Conclusion Final thoughts. Overview of the books and articles read. Graphs and Charts. Bibliography.

I am actually expecting a shorter paper than most, roughly 25-30 pages, but the information here is vast, old, and very hard to decipher, let alone explain in a paper...and a oral presentation....and on an outline.

 

Got to love senior year.
