I've never bothered to look at your profile but Jesus Christ you throw me off as to where you can actually be from. Operation Ivy username I'm thinkin maybe a fellow Californian. A Minnesota Timberwolves avatar, thinkin probably from the Minnesota area? Aloha in your headline, gotta be in Hawaii. And location says dirty souf'
Well, I think Operation Ivy fandom is not exclusive to California, though I could understand how you could lean that direction. The T'Wolves avatar I can't justify very well, but I am a casual Minnesota fan for several weak reasons that aren't worth mentioning. I've never been to the state, and ideally never will. The 'Aloha' is from a Drive Like Jehu song called 'Luau.' The dirty south is the most accurate description, but it's still a lie. I'm actually from suburban South Carolina, and I currently go to school out in the country. So there you go.
That's one of the best video games ever. I like being the Nets because Shawn Bradley is the Eiffel Tower and gets at least 15 blocks per game. Unfortunately, he can't shoot the three ball like other big men in the game. David Robinson has the purest stroke.
I can't count the number of times my friends and I have played N64 only to have the fun devolve into sincere rage. It's usually funny looking back, but our copy of Blitz has a puncture wound from a screwdriver. It still worked, by the way, with the screwdriver impaled in it.
As someone who did marching band (nerd, yes) all four years of high school, I know firsthand what kind of freaks there are in band, but we found a nice little niche with a few cool people and it was actually a lot of fun. Concert band was actually pretty boring.
Churrascarias, or those Brazilian steakhouses, to the layman, are some of the greatest things on Earth. The best part, of course, is the unlimited meat served directly to you, but it doesn't hurt that the actual quality of the meat if often fantastic as well. Also, fried bananas.
I applied to only one college, and there was no essay on the application. Actually, the main reason I didn't apply to the honors college here is that there was an essay. Considering I eventually got into the honors college anyway, I guess I'm awesome. Or pathetically unmotivated.
Chapelle's Show was exceptional. I could enjoy reruns of it multiple times. Comedy Central really has gone by the wayside. South Park isn't funny anymore, and that's about all they have going for them. The movies that they show on weekday afternoons have got to be some of the worst movies ever released in theaters.
On a different note, the Olympics are gonna be in Rio. I wanna go.
And it is my theory that young people don't read for pleasure very much these days because the required material in school is boring and difficult to relate to. Somehow, that didn't stop me from doing English, though I read for pleasure very, very little in high school.
