The Power of Laughing Out Loud

Laughing Out Loud.

Other well known monikers include 'lol', 'LOL', 'LoL'. This is the most powerful internet abbreviation, hands down.


You can say anything to anybody on the internet and just tack this little expression on the end, and everything is taken lightly. And I mean ANYTHING. Crazy, perverted, dirty... ANYTHING.

Let's illustrate this. Say you're talking to this freeky zeeky girl and you trying to knock the boots without using the power...
You: I wanna give you a dirty sanchez and smash that filet mignon with the power of a tsunami.
xSeXXXi MaMi 69x: what the fuck?
xSeXXXi MaMi 69x has signed off.

Didn't work out so well. Let's now use the power of laughing out loud.
Arthur:I wanna give you a dirty sanchez and smash that filet mignon with the power of a tsunami lol
Jessica Alba: I'm moist, Arthur.

Boom. Easy peasy. LOL works. The reason? It has a light-hearted connotation connected with it -- it's as if you were smiling while talking to them in real life. So next time you're online and tryna halla and bring those relations to the next level, or if you're just wanna mess around... remember the power of LOL.

Video Games Live Concert Review

Saturday night was a night filled with emotions -- from happiness to sadness, from luminous jubilee to the dark solemn, from extravagant displays to intimate emotion.

No I didn't go to Rick's. Or Hooters.

I went to the Video Games Live concert! I went with my girlfriend (thanks for the tickets, babay babay!) and her brother + GF. The concert itself is the epitome of my childhood, and further confirms to myself how nerdy I am. Or kewl how I am, however you interpret it.

Video Games Live is a basically a concert that plays video game music from different time periods, from different companies, and from different franchises with various footage of the game displayed on a huge display. There is all a catch though -- it's fully orchestrated and accompanied by a freaking filthy choir. They played the standard Mario and Sonic, but also played music from lesser known titles like Mass Effect and music from gamer classics Metal Gear, Final Fantasy, and Castlevania.

I pretty much relived my whole childhood.

I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. There were some segments that struck a deep note in my heart -- like it captivated the accompaniment between the game and its music so perfectly. Sometimes I would become so overwhelmed with emotion that I was on the verge of... my eyes watering.

Fuck that tho I don't cry! My eyes just get sweaty.

My eyes didn't sweat though, it just welled up inside me and made my chest heavy. Bo$$es can be sensitive too.

But anyway, all the nerds in Seattle came to watch. Everybody would cheer, say their little nerdy quips (I kept mine to myself, but I definitely understood 100% of whatever was said or implied), fun time for all!

Oh yeah, if you start spreadin' the word that I almost cried at a video game concert... I'm going to take you to lunch, and by lunch I mean I'm going to give you a knuckle sandwich.

Arthur out!

A little nippy...

Just got back to school after a weekend at my parent's house.

Thermostat reads 48 degrees Fahrenheit in my house.

I'm cold. I'm going to snuggle up with somebody tonight.

New toy!

I got a microcontroller from my embedded microprocessors class! I'll definitely have to fend off all the ladies when I tote this bad boy around -- this shit even has more pull than my mama's minivan that I drive in around here.

In fact, I wrote a haiku about it:
I got a new toy
It's green and has buttons, lol
spaghetti meatballs

Enough with that though, pictures!

I all tried to be a little artsy with it on that last one -- don't know how far you can get with art when you're dealing with *snort snort* microprocessors *snort snort chortle*.

Arthur out!

My Lambo is Blue...

Obama got inaugurated today over in Washington D.C. I watched the speech through my bleary, sand crusted eyes, slumped in my computer chair. Early morning EE labs... bleh.

I'm not a very political person -- I was indifferent regarding who would win. I know that sounds ignorant but I guess it's just the way I am. Eventually I'll poke my nose into that world (what dat smell like?), but for now we'll see where Obama takes us!

Oodles of Doodles

Sometimes when I'm in class, I just drift off into Arthur land and start doodling on the margins of my paper. I mean the class isn't terribly hard -- I'm a senior taking a 100 level class to pick up those electives!

Some doodles this week:

Some random female accompanied by a pirate. ARRRRRTHUR! Click for a closer view, disregard my notes about whores -- it helps me remember better when I interject my own... words I guess.

My professor. He's a funny and smart guy. Always has his own personal quips and anecdotes that I find amusing from time to time. Always rockin' the open toe Birkenstocks like a true engineering gangster. That model on his little projector was the assignment that we had to draft at the time.

If you're wondering why the people look deformed/cartoony, it's because I was influenced by the art direction of this XXXBox game Castle Crashers (I know, kewl rite?!)

Arthur's Music Vol. 1

I don't know where music now-a-days is heading off to.

I mean I enjoy most of it, but it has no feeling, no emotion, no soul.

I mean it's great when you talk about moving kilos and kilos of various narcotics, or how many promiscuous women you have had sexual relations with, or how you have received fellatio from my intimate sweetheart and then proceeded to share with your compatriots, then slapped my mother. All for the neighborhood you reside in.

But sometimes you just have to take a break from all that. Sometimes you need music with feeling, music that makes you cringe inside and made you go...

With that, I present you Troop - All I Do Is Think of You

Right when the beat drops and he goes "neh hooooooooooo heyayayayyy", WOW. They sing with so much emotion, something that is so absent in music today. I don't even know if music will ever get back to this. I mean, who's going to bring us back? Justin Timberlake? Pfft.

This song is that shit tho -- I wouldn't be surprised if my parents told me I was conceived to this song. Kinda gross but yeah.

Hope ya'll enjoy. I'm going to do a post like this maybe once every week -- get ya'll educated on the game!

Arthur out!

Arthur's Breakfast Vol. 2

Bored on a Saturday morning, I decided to take you guys on a whimsical tour through my kitchen, soul, body, and mind.

Let me give you an inside peek of Arthur's Breakfast -- where real work gets done, where real magic happens, and where real men get fed.

Arthur out!

Jumping Jacks -- Harder than you'd think...

Growing up, jumping jacks were the easiest thing for my pudgy wudgy body to do -- it was the push-ups and sit-ups that got me.

Although apparently, people on the other side of the world have a little bit of trouble doing them...

I mean seriously? I've watched this so many times and I still laugh -- dudes lookin' like they doing the Chicken Dance x I'm A Little Teapot collabo. Dude on the right takes the cake (even though I don't like cake).

Happy New Year's - A year-in-review!

A year has come and gone -- for both real life AND this blog.

Remember this? My first post!

Can you believe it? I didn't even realize it until now. I've actually written in this blog for a year -- a year of me talking bullshit, a year of me talking knowledge, a year of me talking sexy.

With that, I'd like to highlight some of my favorite entries that I've written over the year. Looking back though, I think that every entry I write is pretty awesome. I'm not even joking when I say this. I mean sometimes I'm short on time and just share a YouTube video, but that YouTube video is the creme de le creme of the internet. Guaranteed. Pretty narcissistic of me, but I think that comes with the territory when you visit this page... am I right? ;]

The Computer Love post
This was where I talked about how to figure out if a female really wants to knock the boots or just wants to play checkers with you. I picked this because it was my first "Arthur Wisdom" post.

Smells like Chimmychangas! post
This entry was when I wrote about getting thrown up on in a club in Seattle, sitting in my girlfriend's car with her some of her familiy without my pants on, eating a hotdog. It was a good hotdog.

My pie post
Pie shits on cake.

My MySpace Survey post
Entry where I delve into the complex relationship between girls and MySpace surveys. Arthur Wisdom at its finest. I even participate in a survey to put myself in a female's shoes. Then in their pants -- not literally though. See what I did there?

My pooping in a corporate environment post
Once you read this, your chances of taking a deucer undisturbed will go up 200%.
Runner-up: My awkward work story post where I pass insane amounts of flatulence in the elevator thinking I would be by myself, but instead receive an unexpected guest.

My maui chips video
Was my first video where I felt my video editing skills have reached a new level. I was really happy with how this turned out. Pretty much everything was impromptu -- it was just me and my brother acting ourselves. This led to me making breakfast for you guys and showing you how excited I get when snow first touches down.

There are many entries that I left out -- I think I have a total of around 100 posts? Pretty crazy. But anyway, these are the ones that I, myself, Arthur, the man, the king, the bo$$, find particularly dear to my heart.

Take it easy, and let's usher in a great new year!
