To Funny To Not Share

Saw this on Conan last night. I laughed pretty hard at the time, it's got to be one of the funnier GTA pieces I have seen.

Well, except this of course:

Other GTA Stuff Info Dump:
- Google Maps has a GTA map where can people can put easter eggs, missions and locations and you can do everything just like in regular Google maps, except no satellite images... yet.

- Adam Sessler from X-Play and other various ZDTV and G4TV fame talks to NPR about Grand Theft Auto IV on Talk of the Nation.... and you-know-who calls in. Recordings of the program can be found here. Make sure you listen to it all the way to the end.

- A funny clip and some other information about the Media Universe of GTA IV.

Quick 3 Part Rant:
Nothing pisses me off more than people that are completely oblivious to the other human beings around them. Three things that really piss me off that have a common theme with people on the right and left. Confused? Well you will see what I mean.

Number One: Morons that drive in the left lane. If it's a two lane highway/interstate don't drive in the left lane. Move over to the right unless you are passing someone. If you are constantly passing people 1/2 mph faster than the person on the right, and you see someone going faster than you coming up behind you, you should move over to the right as soon as you get by them. And if you are feeling generous speed up enough to pass them in the next few miles. Just because you are going 72 in a 70mph zone does not mean you can "drive in the fast lane."

Second, people that fucking stand on the escalators, either in the middle or on the left side. Unless you have luggage, are pregnant or old, or a combination of the three you should probably just take the 3 steps it takes to get up the escalator anyway. But when 300 people are trying to get to work before the clock strikes nine you should probably at least move to the right side so people can pass you. How unaware do you have to be when you see a line of people behind when there is nothing but empty steps ahead of you. (This obviously only applies when it's a very busy escalator)

Third, move your ass to the inside of the seat on public transportation (could be the left or right side depending on what side of the bus/train you are on). It's not the end of the world to sit with someone on the train. It's going to happen. You can't try to avoid eye contact for the entire ride but instead, just move your fat ass to the inside so the elderly woman can sit down.

God damn, I am so angry right now. Thank god it's Friday. Anyone have any plans?

haha solid rant daymonster. that second video was pretty funny, especially toward the end when he started talking about being able to hire a prostitute, and then being able to light the police officer on fire when he tries to arrest you.

oh yeah, i've been up before 9 a.m. 5 days in a row now.

Daymonster said...

Haha, yeah there isn't even a chainsaw in GTA IV (which sucks). I was going to write about the MADD problem with GTA but I can't do it justice.

i loooove stockholm syndrome by muse, pete do you have gh3 or just rock band? i have to get caught up on all the rock band dlc this weekend

Daymonster said...

Oh for sure Unky. I think it can be damaging to some kids if not a lot. But it makes me upset when people think Video games are only for kids. It's the parents responsibility to make sure their kids don't get the game for Christmas, just like it's their responsibility to not buy porn for them. I could go on and on but I think you get my point. So I agree but that's not what these pundits are saying, they sincerely think this game is intended for 12 yr olds and thats not the case.

I second your opinions Unky and Daymonster. I even catch myself looking out the window from the third floor here at work and thinking to myself how good of a sniper spot it would be, or visualizing skateboarding lines from back when I played THPS 2 on 64.
