Another new saying that I now hate...

...and this one is one Kit probably won't constantly say just to annoy me.

"No homo" is the saying. It means "I'm not trying to be gay but..."

Example: No homo, bro, we need to hook up soon.

Decision time, and I'd like your help.

Do I stay or do I go?

I've been presented with a pretty tough decision to make.

As some of you may know, I have two sisters, who each have two children. None of which are older than 6 years old. They currently live in Florida, but within the month are moving to South Carolina. Both have been left by the supposed "men" (I call them pussies, cowards, deadbeats, douche bags, ass clowns, etc.) in their lives. My oldest sister, Shannon, has already began dating someone who is already familiar with her two boys, and her two boys adore him like he is their father. But my other sister, Erin, has a 3 year old daughter and a 1.5 year old son, and her being left was just recently. They keep telling me how easy it would be for me to get a job once I move down there, I can live with Erin in her house which has 3 bedrooms, so obviously I'll get my own room. They haven't used this argument to persuade me to come down yet, but I can just tell that Erin would like a helping hand with the two children she has, and, well, they miss me of course, who the hell wouldn't?

So I'm left with this decision and I would like the opinions of my fellow Artichokians.

Should I stay here, in Michigan, where all of my friends are, but in a shitty job market. Or move down to South Carolina(Charleston to be exact) where my nephews and niece are, I will have a job, but no friends and be forced to make new ones which I'm not really good at.

What do you guys think?

Sherlock Holmes

The trailer for the new Sherlock Holmes movie looks like this movie will be pretty good. I sure hope so.

Letter to the Citizens of Metropolis.

Even though I believe I'm the only one here that watches Smallville(since Steve deep down really doens't like Superman, lol) in the season 8 finale he was forced to fight Doomsday. In this season he has embraced himself as the protector of Metropolis, but in case he died at the hands of the only being that has ever killed him, he wrote this goodbye letter to the citizens of Metropolis. They didn't show what the letter said on the show, but here it is. I read it, and really liked it so I'm putting it up here.

"You have welcomed me into your city and allowed me to make it my home. I will always be grateful for that. Which is why I cannot leave without saying goodbye. This newspaper has made me into what you think I am - an example, a symbol, a "hero." But the truth is, I'm simply one of you. The only difference is that my days in the shadows and my nights in the streets have allowed me to see what you've lost sight of - the good in each of you.

I've seen regular people do extraordinary things. I've seen you help each other up after you've been knocked down. I've seen you stand together when times are tough. And I've seen the smallest act make the biggest change. If I've done anything right, I hope it's help you realize one person can make a difference in the lives of others - that Metropolis doesn't need a hero. Have faith in yourself, and you will find hope in each other.

Remember, it's not the mask that makes the hero. It's the choices we make and the desire to do what's right. I've seen that desire in all of you. It inspired me to promise I would do everything in my power to protect this city - but I can't promise that I'll be around forever. One day, there may be a fight I cannot win.

But if that day comes, please, keep fighting without me to make the world a better place. Be the heroes I know you are."

This game looks awesome.

If you like Westerns, as most of us do/should, this game is going to be awesome. It is made from Rockstar and is an open world "GTA" type game, just a western. Looks great.

I should have thought of this to get off jury duty.

This guy has some balls. He wrote this letter to get out of jury duty.
