Wing Suit Base Jumping

Been a fan of this for ages, one of those things I desperately want to try but would probably chicken out of. Its basically just want it sounds like, they jump off of things with a wing suit, and use their parachute before dieing. Sounds simple eough but some of them try to get closer and closer to the edge or jump, there is videos of these guys being 3 feet off the ground going down a slope next to skiers. Warning naturally, this is super dangerous and alot of people had died from just being stupid and doing this.

I wanna be the guy! The movie, the Game.

 I wanna be the guy is probably the hardest, most frustrating game that has ever been made. The designer actually said to himself when making it "How hard can I make this and will people keep playing it?" IWBTG quickly received a cult following in people that were searching for a game that made them want to smash a lead pipe into their teeth after a few minutes of playing it. 

 I have been playing IWBTG over the course of a few years, playing for a bit then getting mad and stopping for a month or so. I am finally at the last boss (after 3622 deaths) I tried for a couple of hours to beat him today but gave up when my hand started hurting from pressing fire too much. 

IWBTG is free, and is only around 60mb so I would definitely recommend downloading it just to see what all the fuss is about, apart from the mind numbing frustration it is actually quite fun and very funny to play, with references to other games that gives it a sense of nostalgia.

Cute Baby Seal

In my post about New Zealand Wildlife I posted some pics of the Seal that lives along the footpath near our city center, was just playing around with my Camera and saw it again and tried out the video tool, so here is an 11 second clip of it just being a seal =)

In other news, still looking for a job before I run out of money haha, take it easy guys.

New Zealand Vs Freedom of Protesting

With all the "Occupy" groups around the world, New Zealand had to join in on the fun. Though the amount of people doing it here are small, however after complaints in Auckland police have now forcibly removed the protesters in our country, including people chained together. You can read more about it here.

The perks of waking up early for delivery guys.

While waiting for my thrice missed package which I can only assume is the passport I have been waiting for I was able to see the sun coming up which as a person that sleeps in rarely gets to see. So here is a picture of the sun on the clouds over the harbor in Wellington New Zealand.

On Owls and Naked Men

A couple posts back I was writing about the native New Zealand Owl and other birds around my house, well I decided to try and find it again to show my friend. So we waited until around midnight when it started calling and went out to look for it with a spot light, we were under the tree and I was searching for it when I heard a voice from below me.

"Heeeeellllloooooooo" it said. I was surprised by this and aimed the torch lower, where before my eyes there was a bathtub, with scented candles around and a naked man having a soak. "Ah Hi..." I replied not sure how my bird hunt had come to this. He spoke in a voice that carried on a bit and said to me "Ahhhh you muuust be the boy that lives at that house over there, I don't think we have had a chance to meet yet". We introduced each other and I explained the situation, he was actually rather nice to talk to to. We decided to give up looking for the Owl since our conversation had scared it off, but as we were leaving he exclaimed "Youuu simply must come out for a soak some time in the night young man". >_>

Justine - Amnesia the Dark Descent Bonus DLC Playthrough

Apparently I do videos too, who would have thought? I'm new to it though, and my mic isnt very good
so my voice is a bit quiet. But check it out if you have the time! Content warning though, if you get into Amnesia or Justine its very immerse and full of horror (actual horror, not 'lets just blow blood and guns everywhere and say boo')

Justine, a totally well adjusted individual. 

I also do Starcraft 2 videos (naturally). Please like and subscribe it if you can, means a lot. Feedback would be good too, so I can improve on future videos. Let me know what you guys think =)

The postman always comes through.

Past week I have been waiting for some mystery package to arrive, though it has been delayed several times. I checked the track and trace number today while waiting and to see. "This item has been delivered and signed for my Sarah M"

Oh ok...wait what? No one I know lives here or has that name. So not only did they wrongly delivery my sign for package but someone accepted and signed for it knowing I didnt live with them or know me. To add just a bit of fun to the situation this package could be one of three things: Citizenship papers I have spent a lot of money on (to apply to work overseas I need them), a passport I am waiting for, or a late birthday gift. Arrrg this is going to be annoying to work out, guess Ill have to go around to all the neighbors and see if I can get it back and ring the couriers too.

Give me your ladder points!

I was always a fan of WC3 Dota customs so this might be pretty cool, but it might have come a bit late. With valve producing DOTA2 and other games like League of Legends and HoN out there I wonder if there will be much of a place for this. Also wondering if valve owns the name DOTA now will they be able to sue Blizzard over this? Maybe someone with more legal knowledge can answer me below =) But anyway what do you guys this of this?
