I didn’t get any super awesome presents for christmas. I got $ to buy shoes from my grandparents, PJs and an electrical toothbrush from my mom’s and nothing else worthy of a note.

Now for a little rant. I don’t like people. I don’t like being around any kind of people, really. When places get crowded, I want to creep into a little shell and just observe or isolate myself and do my own thing. However, with that said, I love kids. My cousins are the sh-t. One of my cousins is like a massive Star Wars fan, and he got 3 fucking Star Wars costumes. So now we got Luke Skywalker running around the house with a blue lightsaber. Luke’s lightsaber is green, which my cousin knows, but doesn’t seem to mind. He beat me in a duel when I challenged him. Awesome fun.

We’re like 13 people in the house. I sleep in the same room as my snoring grandpa, and I sleep pretty light. GG. I can’t sleep with a ton of noise in the background, and snoring is like a LOT of noise. The living room is going to get nasty in a couple of hours, when the kids wake up. It’s 8:30 in the morning, and I’m the first one to wake up.

Tomorrow it’s Boxing Day in the UK, and thus an excellent occasion to throw in some gambol, and I’ll probably blog about my predictions for the matches tomorrow later today or tomorrow.

Chicago Bulls suck

[x] 2,25-1 on Cavs @ Suns.
[x] 1,97-1 on a double with Magic beating Jazz and Bulls beating Kings.

+EV, amirite? Right.

Well, when I went to bed, Bulls had like a comfortable 30 point lead or something. When I woke up and checked the score, THEY HAD FUCKING LOST. That shit was gay as fuuuuuuuuck, obviously. Tyreke Evans is like a one man army or some shit like that imo. I guess I should’ve thrown some d’s on Spurs beating Clippers as well, but my brain obviously didn’t comprehend.

Vaccines and side effects (H1N1)

I got my H1N1 vaccine a couple of days ago. A well spent $25 imo. However, I’m having side effects that tilt the fuck out of me. My throat is soar like fuck, and it sucks because I can’t scream or sing at all. I think my lymph nodes are swollen or something. My arm is pretty soar too. The night after I had gotten the vaccine, I couldn’t lay on my arm because it hurt so much. I think it’ll pass soon, but I’m glad I got the vaccine now and not a couple of days before my band is recording the demo because that would cause epic fail.

As far as poker goes, confidence is coming back after my $6k downswing, and HEM shows 9 out of 13 days as green. The only thing I have to fix now is quitting when I’m stuck, instead of playing on, because 3 of the 4 losing sessions are $1k+ losses. Obvious tilt and bad play ITT, so I’m still on a losing month, but I feel pretty good about it. I think I have gotten over a bump lately after I started playing a little more on PStars, playing MTTs and some uPLO. I just have to ABC a little more.

I played some guy HU at NL100 yesterday on the iPoker 300BB tables. We played for 15 minutes, and he rage-quit me after losing $500.

Here are the two biggest pots from that session:

Human flesh has a wonderful taste

My band is going to record a demo in late December or early January. I’ll post a link when we’re done. It’ll be free for everyone to download. It’s going to kick ass too, btw.

How to write music like Emmure

A 5 step guide to writing music like Emmure:
1) Write lyrics that hate on The Acacia Strain.
2) Encode into binary, and voila, you got tabs.
3) Add rhythm to said tabs.
4) Write new lyrics.
5) Rinse and repeat.

Try it.

Sabita Tobira No Dai 8 Tengoku

Got up at 12:00, and had breakfast, showered etc and watched a video. Went to band practice at 14:30. Got home at 20:00 or so. Had dinner and watched a video. Played an MTT. Got it in with 60 % equity one time, 80 % another time, and 75 % another. Lost all of them. Got it in with AKs vs. JJ and flopped overs + flushdraw and missed. Bart wanted to rail, so I fired up some NL100 and grinded a little bit. It was definitely good to get someone else’s perspective, I think I needed that. I’ve been playing too much on auto-pilot, and too much like a retard or something. Here’s a pretty cool call I made vs. some spastic guy. I don’t really have any notes on his river play, so I’m not sure the river call is too great, but the plan of calling down is definitely epic. Maybe 3betting the turn is better? He never has anything on the turn, but he might spazz vs. a 3bet. I don’t know.

I made some buy-ins at NL100 and a little bit at NL200, and decided to get back to NL200 again. Didn’t go too well. 12-tabled, played like a nit. Played a couple of good hands, and made a couple of spewy stack-offs + I lost a shit-ton at non-showdown. Meh.

I played a couple of tournaments (6?) and got deep in 2 tournaments, both in PLO. I didn’t make any huge scores though, but enough to break even at the MTTs.

Graph from today’s fail.
