So I'm Valedictorian...

I was elected valedictorian. SWEET.

Basically, I was wondering what you guys thought about your valedictorian (if you have had one yet) and what you like to see in such a speech.

Thanks

Progressive metal; if you're into bands like Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Katatonia, Agalloch, Between the Buried and Me, etc., then you may enjoy us. The album is eight songs totalling about an hour of music.

Any support is appreciated.

Thanks for listening :)

Do you still play PS2, XBOX, or Gamecube games?

I play my PS2 games on my PS3 all the time, but I'm wondering if any of you guys do the same. It's also great that you can PS2 games for dirt cheap now at Gamestop/EB Games... I just got Red Faction II for $4.99!! 
 
So anyway, going back to my original question: do you guys still play PS2, XBOX, or Gamecube games, or have you "moved on" from that generation?

The Blog of a Sick Kid

Well, I'm sick today and I was yesterday too. I played Modern Warfare 2 with my brother for a while yesterday. I'm starting to like it more (although TF2 is still the best online first-person shooter game). Also, I really want it to be tomorrow... am I the only one who wants to know what happens on Survivor? This has been the best season in a while for me. Here are my predictions:
 
6th: Brett
5th: Shambo
4th: Jaison
3rd: Mick
2nd: Natalie
1st: Russell
 
I think Foa Foa will stick together... well I hope so anyway. Brett is just boring, although he apparently has been playing an amazing social game. Dhambo is simply the last Galu, and while she won't get any jury votes, I think Foa Foa will stick together because that will look better to the jury. Then I think Jaison will taken out because the other three will see him as the biggest threat (aside from Russell, but he'll somehow avoid elimination). I don't really know what else to say here... I'll start using this blog more often from now on I guess.
 


Well I have to go to the bathroom.
 
Bye!
