LocoPuyo's new car

Dear Knights,

A few days ago I bought a new car, a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT.  I like it a lot.  Here are a few pictures, click to enlarge.

I got the premium package (leather seats, etc.) and the 18"all-season tires.  A lot of them come with 19" summer only tires which would not be a very logical purchase on the eve of winter in Minnesota.   It has a 362 HP 6 Liter V8 engine which gets 15/24 mpg city/highway. The interior is very nice and can seat 4 very comftorably, it can seat 5.  I'm fairly tall and can fit in the back seat behind the driver's seat adjusted to how I sit with plenty of head and leg room.  The sound system is excellent and has plenty of power.  It has a 6 cd changer, which can also play mp3 cds, AM/FM/XM radio, and an auxillary jack for mp3 players.  It has a nice LCD display in the center that controls everything and is very comftorable.  All the audio can also be controlled on the steering wheel, which is very nice and a reason I burned a few mp3 cds instead of using my mp3 player.  It doesn't have bluetooth to connect to my phone or a navigation system which would have been nice but aren't available.  I can make calls and get turn by turn directions with Onstar though.

News from Unkyville

How's it going Knights?

Unkys everywhere are pretty disappointed we didn't get to come to the party and are glad it was such a success. Were there any boot chugs, beer bongs, 40hands, or other crazy binge drinks, or was the crowd to sophisticated for these shenanigans?

I had a unique thing happen to me in H3 the other day. I was playing with Eternal and my weapon of choice ended up being a 'Warthog Driver' (4 splatter kills). I thought that epitomized my playing style. We've been playing quite a bit and have occasionally played w/ SB but with others would sign on.

It's been fun watching the Twins beat up on the ChiSox and I'm looking forward to tonight's game. Also enjoying the NFL season and watching the Cowboys pwn up on the league.

I take the LSAT in 9 days so I've been doing my fair share of studying and will be quite happy when it's all over. SB, you should really come down this weekend. One time!

Well, it's Saturday. I hope all KofC members have a good day. It's Boozeapalooza for many of you, and I am sure guys will have fun. Josey, tell the neighbor I say 'Hi'. I am sorry I can't make the festivities.

Someone take pictures of the party...

For those of you who are not participating in either event, I hope you find something to do. Adeclipse, have fun wrangling cows or drilling for oil, or whatever it is you do. Playboy and Unky have fun making sweet sweet music to the ugly Luther female contingency.

Whatever you guys do, represent the KofC well!

Dear Knights,
Next Saturday we are going to be having an amazing party. There will be tons of beer and we need you guys to show up and drink it – beer does not drink itself - so mark your calendars!

Sincerely, Josey Wales

So Lazy

I actually have a lot to write about (none of it politcal even) but I just can't do it. So to pass the time check out the below clip.

Thursday, September 4, 2008


I know, no one wants to get in to politics on this blog. I only know the political views of a select few of the KofC contingency. But I watched the RNC last night basically from 5pm to midnight last night. And I wanted to get some of your opinions. I watched Palin's speech and it's clear she is a great speaker, and a "pit bull with lipstick."

I don't know if any of you watched it but here are a few excerpts:

Our son, Track, is 19. And one week from tomorrow, September 11, he'll deploy to Iraq with the Army infantry in the service of his country.

Possibly illegal to release deployment dates of troops, or she is lying to remind us of 9/11.

I guess -- I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities.

At the time Obama was being a lowly community organizer, Palin was taking on the "actual" responsibilities, of being a sports reporter for a local news station and working at a car wash.

I told the Congress, "Thanks, but no thanks," on that Bridge to Nowhere.

After you ran your campaign on the platform of building the bridge, saying the term "Bridge to Nowhere" was insulting to the people that lived in "Nowhere",went to the town the bridge was going to be built and told them that it was necessary to their economy. You then accepted the money from the federal government that was meant for the bridge, and never built it.

That pipeline, when the last section is laid and its valves are open, will lead America one step farther away from dependence on dangerous foreign powers that do not have our interests at heart.

Do you mean the pipeline, built and maintained by Canadians?

Americans, we need to produce more of our own oil and gas. And... And take it from a gal who knows the North Slope of Alaska: We've got lots of both.

The oil that will take over decade to get to our gas tanks, reduce the price of gas by mere cents and will run out in an estimated 10 years.

Our opponents say again and again that drilling will not solve all of America's energy problems, as if we didn't know that already.

Totally. As if.

Al Qaida terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America, and he's worried that someone won't read them their rights.

Yes, don't read them there rights, throw them in a POW camp for a few years. Then they can run for president once they get out.

Government is too big; he wants to grow it. Congress spends too much money; he promises more. Taxes are too high, and he wants to raise them. His tax increases are the fine print in his economic plan.

And let me be specific: The Democratic nominee for president supports plans to raise income taxes, and raise payroll taxes, and raise investment income taxes, and raise the death tax, and raise business taxes, and increase the tax burden on the American people by hundreds of billions of dollars.

Yes, very specific. He must want to raise ALL income taxes, ALL payroll taxes, ALL investment taxes etc. I mean you didn't say anything about shifting the tax burden away from middle to lower class, and you said you were being specific so I believe everything you said is exactly true.

My sister, Heather, and her husband, they just built a service station that's now open for business, like millions of others who run small businesses. How are they... How are they going to be better off if taxes go up?

Well unless your sister makes a few million with her service station, I don't think it will affect her.

I could go on and on with some of it. I neglected to mention all the POW talk just because I don't think I could add anything to new to it.

Best Daily Show Clip Yet.

Ninja Glove

So, my Brother-in-law sent me an email with a link to this game. I tried and thought it was near impossible, but with a little bit of perserverance I have come close to mastering the Ninja glove.

The game is essentially 21 mini challenges that resemble other great free internet games. From like an astroid type game to a mini golf game, you need to complete all 21 challenges to work your way up from ninja pinky, to ninja thumb and if you are truly a master... NINJA GLOVE!

Here is the link to the game:

Right now I am ranked 51st in the world. But those scores are impossible to beat since they fixed some sort of pause glitch. I dare anyone to try to challenge me at Ninja Glove.

KofC Get to Know 'Em: Maestro

How are you?
I am fairly buzzed from drinking this afternoon.

You just got back from the cross-country team trip to Colorado, what was the sweetest part of the trip?
The sweetest part was tying for 1st in our annual mini golf tournament. [Ed. Another KofC member representing the clan in activities other than vids, way to go!]

Second part of previous question: the seniors decided to not do senior night this year for what can only be a lame reason, since you're a senior next year please verify you're going to do senior night and bar-hop your way across Estes Park.
As has been discussed among us already, there is definitely going to be a senior regardless of what anybody says. [Ed. Thank God.]

Rock Band or GH?
I must say that I do like the way that GH distinguishes its different notes while playing, but Rock Band definitely beats it out right now. However, when the new GH comes out it might win this battle, the drum set looks sweet. [Ed. I hate how RB distinguishes notes on guitar/drum, but the singing looks pretty cool.]

You just turned 21, how does it feel to be of age, and what were you doing the minute that you turned 21?
Turning 21 is one of the top 2 best feelings of a person's life, but sadly when I turned 21 I was sleeping at midnight, and then running in the morning. However I did purchase beer, drink beer by playing quarters, and then proceed to carry my beer across campus to show off my age.

Everyone has a drinking habit......SB, Big Guy, and Eternal piss the bed, Dammer falls out of bed and randomly explodes in anger, Warthog swallows his own puke, Pablito talks in German and then sleeps like a petrified tree for 14 hours straight, Adeclipse blacks out and can't be held responsible for what he does, Daymonster pukes on people's vehicles (Ed. No 'monster I'm not mad, I just have only drank with you 3 times in my life and this is what popped into my head)......Maestro what's your habit?

I will say that I tend to go for the ladies. I really loosen up and come on to the ladies to a point where I probably scare them away, but hey I'm drunk so what can I do?

Follow-up: Will you ever get a girlfriend so that DanaWillEatU has someone to talk to when we come home to visit?
I am working on it. I realized that this year is the year to really go after it, and since a lot of the freshman girls are fairly hot I can't go wrong. [Ed. That's gotta be a lie, Luther girls are not hot.] Besides, once I get drunk I can at least get some bad decisions out of them, and on a sidenote, Rose Bear is still younger to SB than freshman are to me so I'm still good.

Daymonster doesn't like Smash Bros., I think that it's fun. Does Daymonster need to look past the button smashing and allow himself to have some fun? What are your embellishments/beefs about Smash Bros.?
I will say that smash bros is great, I thouroughly enjoy playing it, but I actually haven't played too much of it for a very long while. I will say that the only cool part about smash bros is the new characters. Aside from that, the new levels are sub par, and the game play is no different then melee, so what's the point of playing brawl over melee?

What's the longest distance “Buckack!!” you've ever done and was Unky Warthog the recipient?
First off, Unky Warthog was always the recipient, and he most likely always will be, but since Cody (God Dammit) is coming back for a ridiculous almost 2 years there will be some his way. [Ed. That's so sick.] The longest distance was from Brandt to Jensen (Unky had a Trombone lesson so feel free to laugh at that). 

There is one (and only one) game you can pick to play for the rest of your life, what game do you choose?
Wow, that's a tough question, but since you must realize that I have not been addicted to Halo or any of those other games due to lack of an Xbox system, I will say that I could play Zelda Ocarina of Time for the rest of my life and be happy with it. The advances that were made when that game was released, and the enjoyment of almost every part of that game is priceless. 

You recently ran 17 miles as part of your cross-country training, what is your weekly maximum for this season and do you think you could take Josey in a 30 mile race?
My weekly maximum is 80 miles, and I could easily take Josey in a 30 mile race. I say this because I could get through the first 20 miles at around 7 minute pace, and then after that I would have a decent lead on Josey so I would just have to gut out the last 10 miles. [Ed. Race-off with Josey in-between lawyer stuff?]

If you could pick one video game character to live like, who would it be and why?
I would be Link from the Zelda series. He gets every chick to want to marry him, and he pwns at teleportation by song and killing random enemies.

If you could watch in real life one video game cut-scene, what would it be and why?
It would be the cut scene when Greil from Fire Emblem Path of Radience fights the Black Knight. I have seen a lot of cut scenes, and this is so far my favorite.

Name one moment in video games that has touched you emotionally.
The moment in Baten Kaitos when Kalas your main character betrays you after 45 hours of intense gameplay. [Ed. Agreed!]

There is only one food you can eat for the rest of your life, what is it and would you consider eating it with syrup on top?
The answer is steak and yes I would consider putting syrup on top. [Ed. New recipe? ]It would probably make it even more delicious.

Chunky or creamy peanut butter?
Chunky is the way to go. I find it is like gambling because you never know if you are going to get that rotten peanut or not.

What's the best beer you've ever had? And by best don't limit yourself to taste alone, take into account any extraneous situations you may have been in.
Up to this point the best beer I have had was by brand a Keystone Light, but it came out of the very first Das Boot on the night that it arrived and changed many members of the KofC forever.

RIP Don LaFontaine

Don LaFontaine died yesterday. The Duluth native is the voice actor who is famous for "In a world where..."
