Tis the season to be GU
hoodie hoodie hoo, hoo hoo hoo hoooooo

Historically I have looked forward to the month of January like getting teeth pulled (I have jpegs), allergy attacks, and getting kicked in the jewels by an overweight kid in a Tae Kwon Do sparring match. Mostly it was because, until I was out of grade school, when Christmas break was over and it was time to go back to school. No more egg nog. No more playing in the snow at Grandpa's house. No more singing funny parodies of Christmas songs. No more fun. January is essentially the wet fart of the 12 month calendar. After October, November and December you have this raging killjoy of a month with no real holiday (at least not in the US) that takes up space between New Years and February. Everything looks dull and lifeless. All the glitter and glitz of December gives way to boring and generic of January. It wasn't until much later that I was able to stomach January. But only just. August and September are only slightly less lame than January. At least you can go swimming comfortably.

In October you can dress up in public, watch scary movie marathons on TV and get candy. In January dressing up could get you arrested. The only marathons on TV is for Law&Order SVUCIOMGWTFBBQ episodes and the only candy you get is free mints you swipe when you return job applications at your local restaurants.

In November there is pumpkin pie, hot spiced apple cider and mounds of turkey and football. In January it's New Years resolution time fat ass and the Superbowl is being played by teams you hate.

In December you can sing Christmas carols, basque in the light of holiday swag, and get free loot. In January the only people who sing are jerkoff stockboys who are waaaaay too much into R&B. Holiday swag evaporates from the landscape like vampires on a sunny day. And now you get the credit card bill Santa Claus. Ho Ho Ho MoFo.

One month after January is February. The shortest month of the year even in leap years. Going to the supermarket one can find festive life like the year got shock paddled by a poorly paid paramedic. Valentines Day is near and even if everyone hates you you'll still get a cheesy disengenous Valentines Day card and some chocolate. Of course one has to contend with February being Black History Month. I'm not trying to sound racist but one can only stand to hear Maya Angelou so many times before stepping out in front of a speeding bus becomes preferable to one more round of Def Poets Jam. In January you don't even have the privilege, nay, the pleasure of this frustration. It's like the month was designed to be the most tasteless, lifeless, and milktoast string of days possible. Auuughist and Sucktember are muy caliente in comparison.

I aim to change all of this. I aim to mend this break in festivities. The first month of the year wasn't meant to blow. It was meant to Glow. It was meant to ring in the new year not to mourn the passing of the old. There's plenty of time to do that in April when your ass begins to sweat again and you have to turn in your taxes from the previous fiscal year.

G-Unleashed.com I invite you to partake in the celebration which is Veintinueve de Enero (29th of January). It's the Holiday where you dress up like a Rock Star and post a pic of yourself looking like an idiot. It's also a holiday where you post your gaming exploits from the previous year and your projections for the coming annum. Hold up a glass of your favorite fruit juice and/or smoothie and toast to the Gaming New Year!

Thank you,

Wait till Simon gets here with one of his Viking rage outbursts.

It's a fun humorous play on Deiz y Seis, Dia de los Muertos and Cinco de Mayo. By using Spanish it just sounds more legit, and not just a shameless attempt to liven things up in an otherwise lukewarm month.

Sounds like a plan man. January is a sh*tty month in every way but so are February, March and April. Hehe that pretty bad actually. Anyway I like the idea but I'm not going to dress up like a R* and make a fool of myself. I will post about my gaming exploits and what's to come for this year. Oh and I'm in school so I don't have a glass of fruit juice. dry.gif

Well, January is named after the god of the doorway.
Doesn't that set the bar really?

Or you could wait until the 29th to give yourself time to compile your gaming awesomeness. I'll be sending out a mass PM as per usual to see if I can get some old regulars back here for the day. No separate thread will be created to make it simple.

I'm glad to be a source of inspiration.

I forgot to mention to everyone that I started what I call the Dirty Harry Game in forum games. The rules are explained in the thread, but the gist is that posters pit famous or semi-famous people against each other a fist fight and it is up to the next poster to determine who he/she thinks would be the winner. They can go into an explanation of why if they want.

Also get ready to pump your fists; Episodes from Liberty City is coming to PC and PS3!!!

Games I bought last year:
Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
Fallout 3
Fallout 3: The Pitt and Operation Anchorage
Grand Theft Auto IV
F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin (including book with background info, really cool)
C&C: Red Alert 3

Games I'm going to buy (probably) this year:
Battlefield Bad Company 2
Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City
Alien vs Predator
Aliens: Colonial Marines (if it ever gets finished)
Allen Wake
HL2 Episode 3 (if that ever shows up fury.gif )

Should be a good year with not enough time to play everything (as usual).

Most time spend on playing:
Fallout 3 (I can't let it go)
