Well, remember how I was talking about getting some 3D Hiro Hamada Model from a japanese woman?

Here is the final result:



..."Find a modeler who can rework the model"


She did find one in Hollywood, but then it was discovered that the guy was very busy with a movie.

thus I have turned to 2 friends from the Carmageddon community. and one of them is one of the top Professional-level amature modelers for Carmageddon.

Wish Me Luck.

I'm gonna truly need it.

Damn...has it been a whole year since I last posted?

When I first started posting on TMA (..February(?) 2000) I was a 14 year old punk kid who had just gotten the internet the previous Spring. Fast forward 17 years later...and all the talk about having sex you never really had, thinking anything cheese-related is funny and referencing "All Your Base Are Belong to Us" transforms into "Got a god damn house payment.", "Got god damn married." and "Got the same god damn job."

I'm just glad that in the Summer of 1999 that a 13 year old version of me decided to go to AOL keyword "video games" and stumble upon the Twisted Metal 2 message boards. Some 17 year old dickhead named SN0TT ran a site (*ahem*) ...a geocities page called Twisted Metal World...which then splintered off into TMA.

Then there's dark secrets of your internet past...I seen a guy enter an AOL chat room (probably I Am An Evil Poptart) that had the name JayRock1987. I listened to "J-Rock" for about 3 days, even burning a mix CD of it on my dad's ancient burner...I found it about 3 years ago in a stack of old CD-r's that were mostly warped. That demonic god damn thing still worked...it went in the trash.

I'm still upset to this day that I could never find my copy of "Peaceful Graves" by The Nightmare Asylum (Mosh and Moopster's old band)...but a disgustingly chipper J-rock mix CD from my wonder years was still intact.


Useless trivia for the win.

Well. Considering that this post hasn't been inactive for a long time without any updates, here we go!

Since I last posted all my problems, they have for the most part subsided. Even though by my mark of 2 years it has improved, I am still very, very cautious and know I can be right back where I was in a month.

My wife finally got herself a full time job in Feb 2016. She was unemployed for roughly 15 years and had to deal with my youngest son for all of that time. With her working we have done some things we never dreamed of at all. We went to New Orleans for vacation back in September 2017 and are going back again this year in June.† GrinSmiley Never dreamed it possible to have a real vacation at all in my life much less 2.

I have been to many a beer festivals/brew tours over the last 2 years since we now can afford to do minor things. I have also saved money every now and then to try really good Scotch and Bourbon. The $100-200 a bottle kind. Even going to a dinner and a movie like we did last night was taxing before. We are finally able to not only make ends meet but fucking live a little.

As long as I live I will never forget what it's like to be a week or 2 from being almost homeless, or reinforce what I have learned being "White Trash" on welfare when I was a teen.

It's also amazing to know that on 11/23/2013 and every day after that date has been on loan. I was so deep into depression I was inches from taking my life. And every time I see the man that made the comment, "Your a good dude Paul, and I appreciate who you are" I'm letting him know that his appreciation wasn't wasted. It took me 2 years to work the nerve to tell him what he did that day. He's a religious guy, and was so blessed knowing he saved my life. And much more respect to him not being judgmental, or preach at me, and being "blessed" knowing I'm alive and happy.

My youngest son is still a challenge. Because of this, we don't see anyway to solve the problems we have. Because of this, our oldest son has a lot of anger and resentment so now we are technically growing 2 man children. For what it's worth, it seems that's what society wants now anyway.

To reiterate what Nightshade started.

Now just because I spilled my guts here again, I will warn you I won't tolerate any smart ass shit toward me about my family. Even if you were in the extremely small circle of people that know my situation, (or took time to read the past posts in this thread) you still wouldn't be a smart ass. Well.......maybe Xizor.

But anyway, there's the update. You happy now Adonael?† †† †

That's great to hear. I read your posts about your situation, and I am glad to see things working out for you and I hope it stays that way. Life is honestly hard for a lot of people, and reading what you posted before really gave me perspective on how no matter how hard you have it others have it worse and can carry on through the shit that gets flung at them on the daily.

I hope things stay positive, and if you feel things are getting you down again never feel ashamed to talk to someone about it who you know will listen. I have learned this myself recently. I always felt too much of a bother to others yapping about my problems so I always use to keep them bottled up, always afraid of being judged.

I think in a way we are taught to keep are problems to ourselves. Especially in the age of social media and how everybody only shows the best sides of there lives, hiding anything that is less than perfect. This is a lesson I learned after I gave up almost all real social media for a good chunk of 2017. I started talking to my friends more, and being more open about my feelings, and it really does help.

I am probably one of the youngest members on this site, and I know things will get more stressful as life goes on...but staying positive is the best thing to get through it. I have been through 3 jobs in the last year, and the one I am at currently doesn't seem like it's gonna hold up much longer due to our major customers leaving the state (Connecticut is a shitty place to live). But from these experiences I have learned better spending/saving to prepare myself for any negative outcomes.

Anyway...I wish you and your family well Magnum. Stay on a positive path, and always stay prepared for anything.

Thank you. Appreciate it.

I always keep in mind it can go back or be worse. Talking helps only so much. It's the actual change that needs to happen or else to me it's all bullshit. You can only tell a person it will get better so many times, and it stays the same for as long as it did before it's just empty words.

They can turn true but for some, others it doesn't.

I don't really have much to add, but like RK said, it's good to hear you are doing better.

I kinda stay away from this post because I don't have much to say about my life that won't sound like complaining. Really that's all it would be.

I've got a decent job with a promising future and I'm alive and well.

Yea. It's better from where you were the last time you put your shit onto this topic. We both know it's still not a long way from where we were.

It's better and that's all I was asking for. But I also know to be real and try not to be to pessimistic. The glass has been more way more than a 1/4 empty before and I sure as shit haven't forgotten it.

Good to see positive stuff going on with everybody. I haven't been posting in the thread till this point, but fuck it, might as well inject myself in.

Life's okay. I don't talk too much on here but I currently have a one-year old. She'll turn 2 in January. I just turned 20 about a month ago. I'm working in IT trying to save money and get through community college to get a job as a Software Developer sometime in the future. Luckily a lot of the classes are online so it works around a work schedule. A lot of shit to do between being Dad, school and work but I have a family that helps a lot so it makes things manageable. And of course, without my girlfriend baby-momma it would be impossible. Our relationships healthy so thats a plus. She just graduated high school and turns 19 in July, so she'll hopefully be starting work soon. We live with my parents and we need more money, space and time but I can't complain. There's a roof over our heads.

I have an associates in software development. I've studied Java, C, C#, C++, ASP.NET, some ARM Assembly and Python. I'm going to have to make a major project for my senior seminar class in the fall. I need like 4 classes to get my bachelor's at this point. Also make sure to look into scholarships because when I transferred from a state college to a university I qualified for a scholarship that saved me $10k+ a year.

Iíll have to look into that. My fianceť is wanting to be a physical therapy assistant, and since weíre not married and are both considered single parents, weíll probably qualify for financial aid and scholarships.

Do you have any recommendations for beginning in the industry? Iím really liking what Iím learning about Python so far, but I know that doing well in the field is directly affected by how diverse you are. I wish I would have had the foresight to get my Associates in Software Development but I wasnít sure what I wanted to do until recently. Now Iím playing catch-up.
