Turning the Big 16…?

birthdayI don’t know about you, but I have found many birthdays are labeled “big”. People always ask me “So, how does it feel to be (insert new age)”, and my answer is always the same: well, it felt a little bit like yesterday, and the day before. That might be a little cynical, but there you have it.

And what makes a particular birthday better, or more important, than another one? Is it the fact that it has a zero on the end, or is it because you can now do something different than you could before? Don’t get me wrong, I love birthdays, but what I don’t get is that some people expect a big change on the day. I find that changes occur throughout the year to change how we view things  and further our understanding.

So how do you view it? Do you think it’s the day that makes a difference? Do you feel different?

Bad Music? Bad Sound?

I was watching live at the Apollo the other night, and Dara O’Briain was talking about the entertainment business, but specifically video games. As he was talking about video games he also mentioned music, what he said struck me as strange and weird, so I want your opinion on this.

DaraHe talked about how he ocassionaly likes to listen to pop. I find this extremely funny. What he said afterwards was the strange part, he goes on to talk about how people he has met told him that he listens to the wrong music. he just laughs and says wrong music? How can sound be wrong? 

As he said that I just sat there dumbstruck and thought of 1 person: Justin Bieber. How can someone I despise so badly for the very reason that his sound is bad, actually just not be capable of being bad, just cause his sound is.

Anyways i just wanted to ask: Is it possible for sound to be bad? personally I think that it can 🙂

Defense Against the Dark Arts

Now, I would like to specify what the Dark Arts are. The Dark Arts are the abilities that girls use to bewitch, entrance, or otherwise completely take over boys’s brains.

magicI don’t know if there is a suitable defense against this horrible and powerful Art, but if there is, then I would like to know before they get to me as well. Many of my friends have fallen to this, and it completely changes them.

The guys no longer want to hang out, and they seem to never have time to go into town. I think that women have abilities that we men can’t fathom, and this proves it.

My parents have been trying to teach me Defense Against the Dark Arts for a while, but I haven’t really got it. No matter what I do, I just sit there looking  like a fool…  ahh, well, you all will probably tell me there is no defense, and I have come to the conclusion that, you know what, I don’t really mind. 🙂

What do guys do?

Oh yeah, they break each other.

I was recently on holiday, in America, and me and my cousin (anonymous) were out swimming with his dad and family. So, there I was just messing around in the shallow end and he turns to me and says “I am going to dunk you”. Keep in mind that he is a year and two months older than me.

so we start wrestling in the pool, for how long I can’t remember, and didn’t strike each other we just grappeled. Nearly everytime we started to grapple we would end up just locking, hugging each other.

So this went on for awhile and eventually my cousin had half of my face in the water, but I flipped it around and put all of him in. So woo 1 to 0.5, and again we would grapple for awhile.

PainBucketBut the main event is when he tried to take me down, some how our arms got locked above our heads and I pushed down, and guess what, dislocated shoulder for cousin. Ouch.

I gotta say that seeing a dislocated shoulder has to be on of the most disgusting things I have ever seen. I just thought that I would share this little escapade to those few that read this blog.
