Weed.....glorious weed

I smoke weed. Ive smoked weed since i was 22. I'm not a drinker and i don't or ever have done hard drugs. Smoking weed has never made me think 'mmm i think ill have an aul go on the crack pipe now' I have never felt the urge to do hard drugs.Friends have and i also have been around it and offered it.At one point i remember when i went to get some weed for Christmas, my guy had said 'oooh, sorry dude I'm all out but i know someone that can do you a gram of coke for 25 quid'  Needless to say i stopped using that guy and found a new farmer.

I'm a purist when it comes to weed. I like organic non chemical weed. I lucky enough to have an old hippy dude who grows and sells for medical reasons so he doesn't charge so much. But the condition of weed where i live is terrible, the rates are extortionist and the guys selling are scumbags so i know I'm in a fortunate position. I would rather go without weed than fund a criminal gang. I'm not in a position to grow but i would if i could. I smoke to relax. I have always had trouble relaxing and chilling out.I was hyper and always had to do something. But in recent years i have been suffering fatigue, aches and pains, forgetfulness disorientation etc. I kept going to doctors and specialists to no avail. It was really frustrating, id get into work and felt like i had a temperature or like i needed a shower.I felt so tired and id still have 9 hours to go.

It was getting me down but when i smoked a joint the aches would go. Naturally i started to think 'Was the weed causing this? At the time i didn't know anything about weed as such, so i stopped for a few months only to find i could barely move. I was still getting no answers and was feeling like a hypocondriatic. So i stopped going to my doctor and pretending i was fine. Then 2 years ago i was cleaning up my sitting room when i turned to quickly and fell on the ground smashing my arm of the coffee table. At first i thought i had broken my arm but i could move it etc, so went to stand up. It was then i realised my knee had been completely knocked out. To make a long story short i spent the next year learning how to walk again thanks to a fantastic Physio called John Maguire . But its only in the last few months after my physio recommended i go for blood tests to rule out Rhuemitism i found out that i actually have Fibromyalgia, which would account for all my aches and pains, body temp goinjg up and down and on and on.

Naturally i was put on meds and they are working to a point but if i stop taking them for a day or 2 im fucked again and in agony. But my point to all that mad rambling is, if i hadnt been smoking weed all along i would have been in much more pain. When my Da was diagnosed with Bowel cancer he was only given 3 months to live.He was in agaony and it was agony for the family to see this once strong proud man so frail and in pain. He was on the highest dose of morphine legally allowed but was still in pain. I rolled him a joint to help him. It did too, he slept for 8 hours straight.The longest since he had been diagnoised. A friend i once had was told she had MS, i would see her collaspe in agony and have voilent tremors, i felt helpless.But you know what helped her..Yep you guessed it.WEED. she started smoking it and cooking with it and she was a able to control her spasms much more and was able to sleep throughout the night.

I could go on with stories and people accounts but the facts speak for themselves. Im not a 'dozy stoner' Im not a scumbag. I smoke weed and im still the same person i have been all my life. I have no time for people who take cocaine, speed etc and would never touch anything like it. There are a lot of 'facts' out there about cannabis but most of the info is highly exaggerated and false. If you want to know real facts about Cannabis and its affects, ask me. Dont judge me and think im just 'a pothead'  

Remember this also, your an addict, you consume your caffine, suger,T.V,Transfats,artifical goodies, etc every single day. I dont smoke weed every single day. Cannabis has never killed anyone.EVER. Look at the figures.They speak for themselves.

I had to write about this game...

Blue Stinger...Dreamcast

So i got this game for the Dreamcast today and it is one of the weirdest WTF games Ive played. The back of the box promises me swimming,diving,climbing and blasting, 22 weapons, cinematic 3D worlds and an island called 'Dinosaur Island'  

What i got was block colour, non moving mouths while speaking and choppy graphics but weirdly enticing. The start of the game prompted me to write this blog. My character somehow survives a helicopter crash, i meant this helicopter blew the fuck up and he got a scratch on his cheek. Hes lying on this mad island when out of nowhere a butt naked fairy comes out, perty tits and a perty arse, and looks like shes about to have sex with the unconscious man. She seems to 'enter' him and then he wakes up. She doesn't say a word and flys off. This seems to be 'of the norm' to him and off he walks. He turns out to be from the Eser group (i know, i WAS impressed) the best rescuers in whatever bizarre world he lives in. So he has a radio that miraculously survived the horror crash that killed his best friend by the way but more on that later.

So someone comes into him on the radio and tells him theres an emergency on the very island hes stranded on. How fortunate. But he too in need of rescuing.And in any case, hes one man alone even if he does save whatever people are on this island, whats he going to do ? Run down to the shore and turn around to the people he saved and say, while acting very feminine 'Ooooo awkward, yeeeeah good news is Ive rescued you all THUS far, but i seemed to have overlooked the need for a boat soooooo...yeah'  We're all fucked.

Im digressing, anyway a woman tells him to search the corpses to find keys to activate the doors on the Island. Seems logical to me..walk over to a corpse, search him, Oh he seems to be really excited about this, homoeroticaly shouting  YEAH  every time i find something.  Annnyho's, i walk on when out of nowhere this monster that seems to have 'entered' a mans body and is attacking me. I punch him and then roundhouse kick him and hes gone...It took me a few seconds to think 'what the fuck just happened there, a monster? really' It just seemed out of place.

Meanwhile, I'm aware I'm been watched. I don't know who yet but ill try to fight of this monster that appeared out of nowhere from the sea but hes much to big. I hear arrows flying through the air but i don't know where its coming from. The monsters dead.Yaaaay.. *GASPS* whats this?? A PIRATE of all people, appears. Hes very suggestive i have to say. Hes asked my character 'Wheres Tim' My characters like, Tim? Tim? Tim? Oooh TIM, yeah i dunno and the pirates like (by the way hes Cornish, seems to be voiced by the guy who plays Hagrid in Harry Potter) You mean , you don't know whats 'appened to you best friend? and my character seems to forgotten, just like THAT that his best friend died only moments before. I could well believe the scepticism in the pirates voice. I mean,come on his BEST FRIEND just died and hes all like oooh Tim yeah whatever man... So my character confesses that yes he did know Tim but couldn't account for his whereabouts precisely been that he was in various pieces in the ocean I'd say that a correct statement...but aaaanyhos, this mad pirate just announces that hes to join my character on this mad bizarre quest hes to somehow do. My characters all like 'i don't need your help' and the pirate again getting the upper hand says 'oh really now, kill the monster yourself did you? then pushes past him insults him and tells him to hurry up. My character does what he says. I can see this pirate going to be quite sanctimonious throughout the game.

Oh, and as i said before, the mouths don't move on the characters either.That's quite mad as they are either just grinning insanely or grimacing as they do in mad Japanese cartoons or cartoon games like this one...

Well that's as far as i got, before i start telling my boyfriend Michael about it and then decided i had to blog it. Its truly a bizarre game. One that I'm going to go back to now and see what other bizarre shit is awaits me :D

Video Games...Wonderful Video Games

I'm a gamer. Ive been a gamer since i was knee high to a grass-hopper.It all began with my trusty Atari 2600. I remember that Christmas morning, running downstairs, 3am opening the sitting room door slowly to make sure Santa had come and there it was. All shiny in its box surrounded by other gifts i don't recall because the Atari was there. The games i got were Centipede, Space Invaders,Mario Bros and E.T. Space Invaders been the first one i played, still remains a firm favorite. All that day myself and the family played it, and the next day and the next.I would come home from school and my Dad would be hunched over playing it, pretending he had only just gone on it then we would both play until my Ma would come up and get third degree burns from touching it and saying  'its been on long enough turn it off'

I got a Master System after a few years and loved Shinobi in particular, then it lead onto Snes and Megadrives etc. The thing i remember most about games then was that they were so much fun, so addictive.Granted with the Atari2600 you couldn't pause so you just played until your eyes bleed and thumb seized up. The music would be terrible in some sure, but when you hear the familiar tunes of Sonic or Mario Bros its stuck in your head for days and makes you nostalgic for 8 bits and 16 bits. I have since collected a modest amount of consoles and games amounting to 600 altogether. Plus i can honestly say that i have played each one of the 600 games at least once.

That makes me an uber-nerd.

My problem with games nowadays though, is the fact theres not a great choice.Now before you go crazy emailing me and sending me animal parts in the post, let me explain. I'm a PS3 Fan girl, i love it so much my first child shall be named Sony (not really). But all the games bar a small selection, are either gore based or RPG..They are all very similiar albeit classic games and I'm not saying i wouldn't buy them, i have.Its just theres not enough platformers, puzzlers multi player fun games out there. My biggest collection of games are for my ps2 and i have such a wide variety of games that theres always something to suit my mood. Where are all the Spyros, Crash Bandicoots, etc. I got very excited when i heard there will be a new Ratchet and clank game and a new Rayman game soon.But enough with the blood and zombies already.

I know theres PSN too, but its not varied enough in my opinion either. There are some good games coming soon though to PSN like a new top down Burnout.It looks fun. Games in the 80's were hard too. When my nephew was younger, around 6 he couldn't play any retro games i had but could play GTA or Medal of Honour no problem. He complained that my Atari games were too difficult :D Even now 12 years later i have a compilation of Atari games and my 5 year old nephew Bobby was mystified at them, he too complained they were too difficult. 'THEY ARE CLASSICS' I spluttered and he took it out and put GTA Vice City in. I was left hold the disc going 'but...but' 

Kids today..PAH.

I found out today that in 1979 on a long train ride in Tokyo, Gunpei Yokoi, the man behind Super Mario land,Metroid, the Gameboy and other Nintendo greats, came up with the idea for Game and Watch. The first ever handheld game and precursor to every handheld console in existence.  The man is a legend in the gaming industry but i didn't know this fact until now. That and its alleged that Alfred Hitchcock invented video games...but more on that next time, for now Magic Orbs is calling me and i must obey..
