I was born in a small town… Posted by Matt

Growing up in Eminence I wasn’t privileged to some of the cool things about urban life.  The nearest movie theater was over an hour away, and the nearest fast food war at least a 25-mile drive.  I wasn’t able to drive down to Best Buy to pickup the newest video game or movie, and a trip to the mall was a exciting trip two hour down the road. When I had a chance to move to the city, I jumped on it. Luckily I’ve been able to settle down in West St. Louis County.  Its feels like you’re living in the city, as it has several of the conveniences, but doesn’t have that real urban feel.

 

I don’t ever regret leaving the small town, and with nights like last Monday I think I made the right choise.  I was able to borrow the company’s corporate suite to see Metallica as they rolled through St. Louis.  The concert was amazing and just a short 20 minute drive from my apartment.   Steve and I got there just in time for the opening band to start playing, we sat in the cozy suite with private bathroom and enjoyed a really great show.   The band played for over 2 hours, and on Tuesday I was able to download the entire concert from their website.  Pretty neat little feature and a nice little keepsake.  The picture above on the left t is from the show.

This past Saturday my mom turned 60 years old.  She really doesn’t look her age, and the way she keeps buying convertibles, she doesn’t act it either :D  This weekend for “black friday,” KG and I will be working for mom in the mall in Cape Girardeau.  I’ll be cooking frosted nuts while KG will be personalizing Christmas ornaments.  Should be fun, and it should be crazy busy.

When Numa Numa took over the internet a couple years back I was instantly a fan.   So I was overjoyed when I heard the rapper T.I. sampled this for his new song Live Your Live.  Now if we can just get Chris Brown to some home incorporate the Dramatic looking Chipmunk then I can die a happy man.

The buzz around Star Trek is starting to grow as we get close to the release of the new JJ Abrams relaunch of Star Trek.  I recently read this article on Den of Geek about the very same thing.  The article it references one of the greatest YouTube videos I’ve ever seen, an omage to the Red Shirt.

Red shirts, everyone loves them, and nobody wants to be one.  The term “red shirt” comes from the original Star Trek series and the seemingly expendable characters who wore them.  These single-episode characters would accompany the main characters on missions and more often than not wouldn’t make it back.

If you haven’t seen the trailer for the new movie check it out here.  I have really high hopes for this.  I really liked Cloverfield and KG & I are devout watchers of Lost.

This list of the dumbest GI Joe vehicles really takes me back.  I am pretty certain I owned #’s 1, 4, 11, and #12.  The Havoc has no business on this list because it is completely awesome.  It has a doors in the back that can open up for a hovercraft to launch to get to those hard-to-reach areas where Cobra can hide.   Possibly dumber than anything on this list was the floating platform that my brother and I got for being in my Uncle Greg’s wedding. Don’t get me wrong, the toy was AWESOME, but the practicability of said platform was pretty ridiculous.  The cream of the crop as far as GI Joe vehicles goes was the U.S.S. Flagg, a 7-foot long toy aircraft carrier.  Very few kids could afford this so it was pretty special when you found a kid who had one.  Luckily I knew a kid in Eminence who actually owned one, and let me tell you, it was AWESOME!

November Lan 2008 Posted by Matt

The annual November Lan Party was once again at Butch and Katie’s house in Herculaneum and it was a blast! The Reiter’s have a huge basement that works perfect for setting up all of our computers.   The gracious hosts treated us to pizza, mostacholi, turkey and stuffing, and tons of great breakfast items. The game dejour was once again Team Fortress 2, the multi-class, multiplayer game included in the Orange Box.  In between matches we were able to sneak in time on our favorite MMO, Warhammer Online.   We also played a few sessions of Valve’s new zombie survival game, Left 4 Dead.  This game looks like it has real potential.

This year’s guest list included: Andrew Reiter, Nate Reiter, Jaker Reiter, Tristan Pinkham, Kaleb Captain, Nathan Sanders, Josh Rose, Dan Gidman, Jeremy Randall McNeal, Nathan Thomack, Jason Wyatt, Anatoli Lateria, Matt Libertini, Jonathan Libertini, Aaron Holmes, Joe Frescoln,  Chris Whatley, Jeremy Whatley, and Matt Frazier.  Almost the entire STL LAN crew was in attendance with only Justin Miller and Garett Frescoln being absent.  Our two missing members were able to connect to our server and join in the action remotely.

A great time was had by all and the countdown has begun for next year!
