I've never been one for writing long winded and analytical reviews of stuff, so let me just say this…

I know that those at my abode have already heard and are aware of such things but I felt like gloating some more. I’m kind-of in a band. Recently my buddy Adam and I decided to give ourselves a deadline of New Year to get some tracks recorded so that others could hear what we sound like. This has been done and you can check them out here.
All are just rough mixes and are instrumentals due our lack of a vocalist, or, indeed any vocal talent. Apart from the slight gloating element, as I am actually quite proud of them (a lot more than anything else I've created be it musically or otherwise), I still like to hear people's thoughts, be they positive or negative.
But just remember, comments like "You suck!" make you look foolish, and besides, what have you done lately, hmm?

Never one for original thought, I thought I'd jump right on this here bandwagon and post my one and only slightly artistic photo. If any more photo's follow, they will most likely be blurry messes taken of drunken people, by drunken people. So let this masterpiece of artistic and visual splendour suffice you for now…
Camera: Sony Ericsson W800
Date: A while ago
Location: Bar Awesome. Yep a bar, in my house!
Shutter: Open, I guess
Aperture: You got me, it's a camera phone.
Comments: This is a picture of a vodka and lemonade with a merry christmas sign behind it.
Post-processing: I drank the drink, obviously!

It has just passed the 3-month anniversary of the inception of Fort Awesome and I find myself reflecting on my time here so far. One of the most obvious things is how much fun it has been due to the amount of things I have learnt whilst here. Technically none of these things will help me in the wider world but nonetheless I have learnt them. The great thing about living in a house with people with slightly warped senses of humour is the brilliant TV shows you discover. Whether they be ones that I have never watched but everyone else had, ones that only one person had heard of, or in one case all of us rediscovering, I feel I should give something back by informing you of what we have been inspired by.
This is by no means an exhaustive list and is added to on a daily basis.
I was a late arrival at this fantastically dark and cynical show, but it has left its mark.
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Straight from [adult swim] on the US Cartoon Network, this show is about a carton of fries, a milkshake, and a meatball who solve mysteries… when they can be arsed, which is never. This show is immense and spawned the discovery of all the other [adult swim] cartoons on the list. If it doesn't sound funny, just watch it. Its fantastically random!
Another from the [adult swim] vault, a stop-motion show with dolls created by Seth Green. Full of celebrity cameos in stupidly hilarious sketches this is another winner and really has to be watched to be appreciated.
How to explain Sealab? It's crazy. It makes absolutely no sense, amd the episodes never go anywhere. And that makes it hilarious. Overdubbed and reanimated cells from the original Sealab 2020 have been turned into possibly the most random show you will ever see. Amazing!
12 Oz. Mouse
The newest [adult swim] arrival on Tupac, this how makes about as much sense as Sealab. The drawings are crap, the animations are crap. It's about a mouse who's always drunk. Why is it funny? I have no idea. But it is. It really really is. The more we watch the better it gets. Again just watch it. Now.
Finally a show with no animation and the best theme song in the world. Ever. This show had everything. Its funny, its emotional, it makes you think, and it had two of the best TV characters ever created. Oh and the best line: "Oh boy!" Everyone remembers this show with a certain fondness, and having re-watched them let me assure you, it isn't nostalgia. It really was that good.
I've probably missed some so this will probably get edited in the next day or so but take my word for it…
Watch these shows!

As my housemates and some others are well aware, our bar is complete! You can check out the whole process by checking out the Making The Bar gallery, and make sure you browse the Bar Awesome gallery and marvel at our achievement. You know you're all jealous! Needless to say we're all unbeliveably proud of our achievement in the most manly construction of our bar. Now everybody: "Ohhhh, I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok! I sleep all night and I work all day!"
Note: Fort Awesome does it imply that all Canadian lumberjacks are cross-dressers
nor does not condone drinking; but it does remind you to drink responsibly, lets face it, lets get wasted!
EDIT: Oops, apologies to Lisa as I missed her off the list of poeple who have experienced the Bar. Remedied!

Thats right. We need suggestions for some cocktails that people have had and liked. Please don't put "Oh yeah I ad this gr8 1 calld a 'fuck up the arse'!!1! I woz SO drunk it waz ace!!1!!1", beacuse thats no help and well, frankly, anyone who types like that isn't my friend.
So basically anything you've made at home that was sweet or drunk when you were out and know the ingredients.
