What Pisses Me Off

You know what pisses me off?

When you go to work and a friend at work asks if you've watched the most recent Stargate Atlantis so he can talk to you about it, and you tell him no you haven't, so he tells you to watch it as soon as you get home because something important happens that he wants to talk with you about, so then as soon as you get home you make a beeline to the TiVo in order to watch this awesome episode of an awesome TV show, only to discover that not only was your TiVo apparently fucked up that night--meaning it recorded Stargate Atlantis with audio but no video--but it was really fucking fucked up that night--meaning every show recorded that evening had only audio, no video.

That's what pisses me the fuck off!


Sorry. I felt it necessary to unload on all you unsuspecting blog addicts. I feel better now.

I'm going back to work to ask my friend what happened.

Introduction to Me - The FullMetal Patch


I'm FullMetal Patch.

No, I'm not referring to the show Full Metal Alchemist in my name. That would be completely inane, and I'm not completely inane. At least, that's what I like to tell myself.

Don't think I'm dissing the show. The show itself is one of the best animé I've ever seen--and I've watched quite a few--and I have the utmost respect for it. But actually naming myself after the show is the last thing I would ever do.

I digress.

I call myself FullMetal Patch because I like Metal. As in the music, not the substance. Although metal [the substance] is cool, too. Swords are made of it.

So. Me.

I'm 23 years old, nearing my 24th birthday in mid-August. I'm friendly, energetic, articulate, and apparently I sometimes come off as condescending or arrogant or something like that. I'm not sure, because I don't sound that way to myself. If you ever meet me, you can tell me how to describe it.

As I said, I love metal [the musical genre]; if you want the list of bands, though, you'll have to visit me at MySpace, because I don't want to bore those of you who aren't interested.

Half of you just took a break from reading this to click the link above, didn't you? I love human nature.

At any rate, I'm currently a manager at a local movie theatre, which is a great job if you've never done it. Movie theatres rock. It's not my permanent goal, though.

Longterm, I have aspirations of writing fantasy novels, singing in a Black Metal or Symphonic Power Metal band, and voice acting. Maybe not all at once, but I figure one right after another would work out. And by the way, I'm being totally serious. This is my serious face. If only you could see it.

I enjoy singing and writing (obviously), witty t-shirts, movies, and music [read: metal].

C'est moi. And with that, I give you...FullMetal Blog!
