In the Persona 4 Endurance Run episode 96, towards the end of the episode Jeff says "They should make a Persona fighting game," to which Vinnie replies "Yeah, I'm working on it right now." The in game calendar was this Friday, 9/2/2011. COINCIDENCE?!

Also why are you friends with someone 10 years older than you at 15? And why is he friends with you? Cos that could add a really fucking interesting layer to this story.

I used to play DDR in high school (I wrote a lengthy blog post about it a week or two ago), and I met a lot of interesting people at the local arcade. This guy used to work there, but got fired for showing up late every day for the two weeks he worked there. He was the "cool" guy in the group cause he had a chin piercing, crazy sexy hair, and had a new girlfriend like every week. Little did we know that that was because he was probably using them for money.

And I mean, I was never great friends with him, but he was really good at Initial D so we got along well enough when we were at the arcade together. I feel like I should help this guy out by recommending him for a job or something, but he's moved pretty far from where I live now, he doesn't have a degree which makes it hard to find him a job around here (heck, the Peet's Coffee baristas practically all have degrees in San Francisco), and I can't exactly offer him couch space because I live with 4 other people in a 2 bedroom house (that's San Francisco for you). I...just don't know.

I just reconnected with a friend of mine from the DDR days (2002) on facebook. He's over 10 years older than me (I'm 23). I asked him how he is doing and apparently, he ended up in the boondocks living in a motel with his mom, because the relative that was supporting them died of cancer. Now, I feel terrible about this, but my first reaction was "yeah, I was kind of expecting that." In the years that I knew him, he never worked an honest day in his life. He never went to college, and any retail job he ever had he never lasted more than a few weeks because he would be fired for showing up hours late, or just never showing up at all. I think he was big on clubbing back then, and always had a new girlfriend every time I saw him. He was good looking and that helped him mooch off of more fortunate girls who wanted to be seen with him. I saw him recently at an anime convention, and he was staffing...I thought he had turned over a new leaf. Turns out that he showed up 6 hours late for a morning shift, and probably the only reason he staffed was so he could get a comp'ed hotel room for 4 days so he didn't have to bum around a friend's house anymore.

The ironic thing is, I once got into an argument on a forum back in the day, and I don't know how it came up but I jabbed at him by saying he was 10 years older than me (I was 15 at the time) and never even went to college. I mean, it's not like I had any right to say that, I was still in high school after all. He got way butthurt and insulted my nerdiness and said I would never have a girlfriend because I was a short nerd. Well, things have worked out alright for me...but I can't exactly say the same about him.

But I'm just not sure how I'm supposed to feel about this, which is why I'm venting on GB...he wants help, but I think if he's down to the point where he's living in a motel with his mom, I don't think I can really trust him to "turn over a new leaf." But at the same time, I feel really sorry for him.

Fuck.

I only recently started drinking, and I almost never go to bars to do it. I live in San Francisco so there are start-up companies throwing parties all the time, and almost always their parties are open bar. I'd say I get drunk once every one or two weeks, though recently it's been every week...in addition, any time I go to a convention (usually anime, though I did get drunk at California Extreme with the Whiskey Media interns) I almost always end up in some room party with tons of alcohol.

So, I get drunk somewhat frequently, but I rarely pay for it. If I do I usually spend about $15-20. Also, friday night I blacked out at a party I threw where we were supposed to play video games to celebrate Nick's last day in SF, but eventually girls were licking sugar off each other. If only I could remember it...

@Kyle: I don't know what would ever give you that impression.

He just got a new job so he has no money. He says this every night, everytime you try to use the ATM.

In a 80+ hour game he still doesn't have a dime? That's it, I'm not playing this plot holes-ridden game.

WHOA, if you spent 80 hours playing Catherine you will have beaten it about 7 or 8 times. Definitely not that long, haha.

I'm about 30 hours in and have gotten all but one ending, but that's with skipping cutscenes and puzzles.

It's closer to a 15 hour long game and takes place over a 9 day period, so it could be between pay periods. =P
