Stand in ALL the lines, buy ALL the things!

iPhone_GTA

This has been a very expensive week for me, but I can honestly say that it was worth it! GTA V, iPhone 5s and the Bower & Willkins P3 headphones are all mine, and I sure as hell am enjoying all of them. I’ll talk about my purchases in chronological order, so first up I would like to start with one of the best games (and definitely the most anticipated) of the year –

GTA V

The game was set out to come out at exactly 12am on the 17th of September. Naturally I preordered it, but then I also decided to go to the store at like 11:30pm to wait for the midnight release and pick it up straight away to get some gaming time before going to bed. I can say one thing, good thing I came 30 minutes early! I managed to get a spot at the front of the line (8th or 10th) thereby getting the game right away at 12 and heading home. The game cost $89 (which is the normal price for the standard edition of any console game in Australia).

Watching KVN when suddenly this. Jožin z bažin

В выпуске на открытие дома КВН, команда Станция Спортивная спела песню про грузчиков. Они использовали минусовку этой песни про ёжина с бажина.

Я очень, очень, очень рад, что я русский и, что только у нас есть КВН!

Happy-go-lucky

happy-go-lucky

Sunday Movie Night is an event I organize at urbanest every week at 8pm. The movie I chose for this week was Happy-Go-Lucky because I came across this term at some point somewhere and thought that it was rather suiting for my own personality, and because apparently there is a movie with the same name and same theme, I chose it for the screening.

The story revolves around Poppy, a 30 year old girl who is living with her flatmate Zoe and working as a primary school teacher. Why is she so special? because her character is “happy go lucky”. She always looks at the bright sight of things, she is always happy and acts silly and jokes around about things most of the time. Poppy is trying to make everyone around her happy by making jokes and smiling, but that doesn’t always work. Still she doesn’t frown, she doesn’t cry she just continues being herself.

Today I’d like to talk about Trello. Trello is a cloud based organsation and collaboration software which can be used in creating personal plans and schedules as well as work on projects with a team. With an extremely easy to use interface and a vast set of features I say safely say that I will be using Trello in the future a lot!

1е сентября – международный день знаний, день, когда дети в первый раз идут в первый класс, день, когда ученики всех остальных классов вспоминают что каникулы кончились и что, блин… надо опять учиться.

Я хочу поздравить все моих друзей, кто еще в школе и моих одноклассников в универе (правда наш семестр уже начался месяц назад). В Австралии 1е сентября это не особенный день, но для меня – русского парня из Латвии, этот день всегда был и останется необычным.

Happy 6th Birthday Miku!

Happy birthday to my favorite virtual idol Hatsune Miku! You were born exactly 6 years ago, but for all of us you will forever be 16 years old ^_^
You can also read the congratulations from my friends Ruben and Clara on their blogs.

On a side note, there has been news recently of the new english voice bank for Miku in Vocaloid V3. Its sounds rather good, still feels a bit weird to hear Miku speak english though.

To learn more about it you can go to the Vocaliod Wiki, or listen to a song on YouTube.

Cherry Blossom Picnic Again

1 year ago my close friends Cindy and Sashin organized an event to see the cherry blossoms in Auburn (and I blogged about it). It was amazing, even though we were a bit late and most of the flowers have already finished blooming and had fallen, but we had lots of fun nevertheless. Well this year was even better!

Chefs inspirational quote

ChefSmall

Don’t do drugs kids. There’s a time and place for everything. It’s called college.

– Chef, South Park

I love South Park and have seen all 237 eps of all 16 seasons. And I remembered this quote (well only the second part, not the drugs part, but I couldn’t leave that out cause one does not simply cut a quote in half) when talking to my friend. What I want to say is that: good things come to the ones who wait.
