Fade with the Morning Light

Good evening, or good morning, our sweet, wonderful Readers.

Since I’ve been laid off from work for roughly a month and a half I have been somewhat blessed with a wealth of time for myself and my pursuits. As of late I had found myself sinking softly into a pit of less-than-quiet desperation. Tonight I spent a decent amount of time just thinking. What abouts, you most likely aren’t asking? I’ll tell you anyway, my lucky Readers.

Life has been changing somewhat dramatically for me this year and some, with both tragedy and fortune. For the intents and purposes of this point I shall keep it light and positive.

I am in a new relationship, and have been much MUCH happier with not only my romantic life but with myself. While my significant other would most likely say otherwise, I believe that most of my positive change can be attributed to her. A clarity that was fleeting and uncommon in the past has now become something I can feel with each wondrous day. While life is not rainbows and butterflies, I feel like I am less haunted by my own melancholy feelings.

I’ve graduated from college with my Bachelors in Social Work, and despite the lack of utilization of said degree so far I have done something that no other in my family has at this point.

I’ve decided to take a more laid-back approach to my life as of late. With little to really keep my mind busy, stagnation was slowly creeping into my being. As stated above, things weren’t easier for the time being. Luckily with a strong support group of wonderful friends I stay stronger than I ever could alone. Everything I’ve said is kind of a big thing to say, considering that I am usually just a sad raincloud, haha!

You may have heard this before – from different sources and advertisements and other nonsense – but I can say in absolute confidence that things do get better in time. It seems insurmountable, everything from the everyday disappointments and hopefully rare tragedies, but the human mind is a profoundly strong and resilient entity. You don’t have to listen to me, my dear Readers, but if you’ve gotten this far I would say with a little optimism that hopefully something will stick with you. Thanks for coming by and taking time to read this.

So, I just took the time to make a short update to the “fischisms” page for ErinLovesTheWeb, which was a little awkward (I’m

Either way, here it is.

Him: “So, what’s this website do?”
Me: “What?”
Him: (Incoherent mumbling)
Me: “I think you’re asleep…”
Him: “Obviously”
Me: “What website are you talking about?”
Him: “I don’t know, the one that helps people and shit…”

At, the same time, I also posted a new “Verbal Derp

I was running a weekly tabletop game with a group of friends, and the discussion turned to meat… Somehow.
LuzOb: “Fisch, would you have sex with a roast?”
me: “No…”
LuzOb: “Is it because you’re a vegetarian?”

I do believe that to be it for now. Make sure you visit both of those pages frequently, as both get posted to fairly frequently.

As a brief side note before I depart this time, I am looking into a new format for displaying those quotes, and a new “Perk Dermp” should be coming soon.

Sorry, I am tired as hell, and cannot fall asleep.

Doctor Who! I said the words which means I must be apart of the fandom because that is the only way you can see it, right? Anyway, just a short post for right now, but here is the “Doctor Who” fandom, and thus every argument regarding “The Doctor,” in a nutshell…

Also, expect some “real” content from me shortly. Until then, have fun. And feel free to discuss some shit with us.

It’s been a good run so far with FFI, and although we have a few slow-downs recently, we’re still growing every day.

If you are a reader of one little blog, casual or otherwise, you most likely won’t understand the title of this entry, and that’s a-ok. If you’re an author, most likely you won’t either, but you should and shame on you.

This date, August 13 2011, was when over one-thousand collective brains got to see the beauty that is Fisch Fail Inc. It was also the day that I noticed our blog was becoming something of a big deal. Honestly until that point I mostly blogged for no one, except for maybe myself and Mr. Fail, but afterward I began doing it for a lil ones… I mean the readers.

Seriously though; you guys have gotten us to new heights, and for that I am thankful.

A lot of crap has gone down recently (more on that later) so the blog has gotten somewhat neglected as of late, but hopefully that will change and more posts will be on their way.

Here’s to getting 1000000 views before the end of the year!

Fisch Fail, INC, is still a baby, still growing, still something…infant

If we were a human baby, we would be learning to speak, and maybe eat something that didn’t have the consistency of baby food. But fuck, we’ve already moved on to tacos and alcohol… Says something about us!

Anyway, yesterday we hit a random milestone… 20,000 views (and damnit, I was going to make sure I got to make this announcement!).

So, it took us nearly a year and a half to get our first 10,000… It took us 6 months, to get our second.

Lets try and beat that record (for us) even quicker.

Tell everyone about FFI, let’s do it!

 

 

 


Minute by Minute

So another day, another post.

I took a brief step away from the blog, mostly out of being busy as hell, partly, honestly, from bitterness.

I come back to the blog and find that some people are actually POSTING again?!?

Everyone tell Drez to stop distracting me and to do his homework…

…Okay, now that’s done and over…

I have absolutely no clue as to what I should be writing about these days. I mean hell it’s not really hindering me, because I can ramble on uselessly for pages…

…like. right. now.

I suppose this is basically a life-of-luz-update.

Sidenote: Luz-Obliterations or was it LuzOb-Literations? whatever… is NOT going away forever, I just haven’t been reading from my Kindle in forever (I have a first ed. hardbound Larry Correia book I’m working on) so as soon as I start Kindling (?) again I will be posting more rough-as-cowshit Luz-Whateverthefucks.

I HAVE A LUZOB GLASS! thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Fail (or whatever… don’t you love my vague days?!?) and will most likely be posted by one of them or myself. If I had my sd-to-usb reader on me I’d post it now… oh well.

Man I LO~OOOVE when people little effeminate ringtones go off in a dead quiet space… then persist because the douche-tabogan has big-ass headphones on and cannot hear said effeminate ringtone… THEN persist to get jingly-balls text messages… I swear if my Give Everyone One Free RPG Round a Decade law ever came into effect…

In time, my friends… in time.

Okay… so now about other “projects…”

Well certain things are on less-then-temporary hiatus (most of my broadcasting and rpg shit) others are just pretending to hide under the surface…

Soon…

Apparently we’re gonna hit another FFI milestone here soon, and I’m sure one of us will keep you posted when we get there…

But yeah, I’m tired of writing, and I want a submarine sandwich (who says that anymore?) so I think I’ma go do that.

Lastly; I just got accepted into a very awesome and very terrifying University program in WEGJGWJHGERHERH and this may begin encroaching upon my reading/writing/breathing time… but we’ll see!

 

ps: oh, apparently it is LuzOb-Literations…

So, it is 8:44 in the morning (my time of course), and instead of sleeping or doing homework (both very good ideas for me at thisjean-claude-van-damme-sarah-ball point), I instead am listening to Security Now! (most of you probably will not enjoy), and reading through some old posts of ours…

All I can say is: what. the fuck?

Seriously, apparently half the stories I have ever written were done while I was on crack (something, I don’t partake in, but generally won’t tell if you do… or something).

I mean, maybe you guys haven’t read every one of our 500 entries, or maybe you just don’t remember some of them. Or whatever.

But shit, I really forgot my dad thinks Jean Claude Van Damme is the best actor in the world (I’m still not sure how that is even remotely possible),

Or that Breeish (our famed stalker) wrote a story about her attachment to porn.

Or that Drezirale has literally stated ” I plunge my hands into my poop soup, yes I know I used this term before but I don’t really poop solid. Get over it.”

No, wonder no one loves us… But if you do, feel free to read any of the articles you guys might have missed, or subscribe. I promise that we do post a lot of really awesome… things.


I understand that title may come off as strange…

Anyway…

So it’s apparently been a personally productive week for the authors; me going back to work and a very belated Spring cleaning of the FFI Headquarters (sounds much more official than “FischFailHaus”) which I greatly appreiciate. With this production usually comes a lack of posts, but I can tell you on behalf of all of the authors that we are not dead! FFI will continue to survive, if not thive… hey, I rhymed…

As of late I’ve been on a momentous journey to lands previously unknown to others. A rare journey to not only a different world but a completely new state of mind.

The world: Tamriel… the land: Skyrim!

At first (due to my first three days with the game being unhindered by work or school) I was able to roam the lands with little heed to the “real” world whatsoever… then my vacation ended…

Nordic blood ran through me as I scaled mountains hunting for elk and swam streams in search for salmon… then I started actually taking quests… then I decided cheese wheels rolling down a mountain was more important… then more quests… dragon? DRAGON?! DRAGON!!!

Ahem… then I found the biggest loaf of bread, and placed it around other small loaves… (haha I love that there’s a bread Wikipedia)

Then mead… more mead… “Man… I wish wine, ale and mead had the same effect in real life.” WARHAMMER! “Whoa… there’s kids here… can I kill ’em?!?”

Two things I’ve learned from the first hour of playing: I may have A.D.D. and I may be insane.

So onward with my non-Syrim life (if there ever was one)… I has a wonderful two entire weeks away from work, and needless to say I would’ve enjoyed an gradual and gentle reintegration into the working world.

…Yeah no… I get overtime instead (which is a rarity normally) because people seem to NEED groceries around the holidays… more like holy-daze, amirite? No, no I’m not…

ANYway… So the past couple of days I’ve been on a caffinated derp-rush that can only be described as a… caffinated… derp… rush… and instead of enjoying my couple (or six) or tea that makes my life that more live-able I’ve been quaffing dram-like proportions of both that and coffee! (yeah… try saying all that in one breath, like I envisioned it)

So I suppose that is it for now, and soon an update upon more Skyrim adventures, AyCOoB, and maybe a story or two will be in the works from your’s truly.

Until then:

FOOS!!!

So I was watching a history channel thing today where it started to talk about how man has grown significantly in height over the past generations. Back in like Moses time or whatever they were like five foot five. The thing is there were the freak occasion of people being around our height, like the whole David and Goliath deal. Now, in Ancient Greece the people were even a little less than that. Now, imagine what someone like my friend Null who’s six foot six looks like to them. Especially, back when people couldn’t explain things as well as they could now.

FFI readers I present this… I know a real live titan.

So lets touch on a serious subject– I know rare for me right? The topic is religion. I started thinking about this a while back. Not a whole lot of people in this world really know that much when it comes to their beliefs. Not to rag specifically on Christians, but it seems some of you folk seem to know the least in what you believe. Now, I have nothing against your beliefs, there are even some of you have presented me with valid arguments, and dare I say put me in my place. I love that more than anything. I don’t often like to be wrong, in fact I hate it a lot. Though when it comes to religion it brings me great joy to be proven wrong. You know why? Because it means you know your shit.

A while back when I was in high school. I was talking of the three earth based religions. When someone stopped me right in the middle to say “What about Christianity.” To which I replied. “It’s not an earth based religion.” Needless to say this highly offended the person. Their argument was we are on earth and Christianity was the religion of the world. I then informed them that earth based is worship of elements, animals, and other such spirits. Which then made them say. “But God made these things, so Christianity is earth based.” Still not seeing my point I dismissed this conversation. I’m willing to accept Christianity being the most widespread religion… However, it’s not the one ring to rule them all, so to speak. Much like it’s not the oldest in the world either.

Christianity only dates back to Jesus and his disciples. Before that it was Judaism. The old testament is parts of the Tanaka. Not even the whole thing either, just the parts convenient for the religion in it’s time period. Even during the crusades the bible constantly had things taken out and put in to fit the needs of those who were doing “God’s Work.”  Even Judaism has less of a recorded history than most. By that I don’t mean things happened before Genesis, I mean there are less things from the past of these recordings. No one was around for the big bang. According to the bible God didn’t even make ma until the fifth day. So who knows, there could of been some whack job making shit up in the bible ages and mass produced it as a religion. Look at Scientology, prime example right there.

Another factor would be, humanity as a whole has increased our worldly knowledge so much that common sense would now dictate, lightning plus tree equals fire. As apposed to the then, burning bush miracle. Again, not to pick specifically on this religion, I wasn’t there I don’t know. I’m merely presenting a different plausible outcome. I’m sure every religion has things like these. However, I have only studied a few religions, and only read the Christian bible cover to cover twice. I’d like to say I have a particular religion but I really don’t know enough about any of them to make a true commitment.

There have been points in my life where I have been shown what is what. I was once arguing Mono-theistic vs Poly-theistic. When someone brought about the idea Christianity was Poly, due to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit aspect of things. I presented the argument of the trinity and God being the creator of all these things making it a Mono. To my surprise began comparing Christianity to other Polys such as Athenian, and even Asatru. God x Odin x Zues, Jesus x Thor x Hercules, Lucifer x Loki x Hades. Relation seemed to vary but the outcome for the most part remained unchanged. Not, only that but there are scores of other beings in the Christian religion that seen as icons. Mary, Micheal, Raphael, and Gabriel to name a few. This same person then presented devil worship as a form of the religion as well. Where one can worship say, Loki and you still can be Asatru, all the beings are still there and you still believe in them you just choose to worship the evil end of things. This actually amazed me.

Then again who is really to say what’s good and evil. It’s all on the matter of who’s old or new writings you happen to agree with. It’s personal choice. I have nothing wrong with the choice, I just ask you at least know why. I have asked that question so many times. The most popular one was “It’s the right way.” I have gotten the best answer, “It’s what I like.” but it’s very rare.  You could make up a god tomorrow and name him Billy Bob God Of Corn Cobs. I guarantee you will know more about him than most will know of their own religion. Including myself.

 


Ok, we need a niche of some sort. I mean we are all the fuck over the place with this blog. I mean it’s great and all but thanks to the internet it’s super easy to get famous. I was browsing the net and did you know people like AVGN, Nostalgia Critic, and Team Fourstar all get invited to conventions with their own panels? Admit it guys? How fucking awesome would it be for the authors of FischFail be in a panel?

We could maybe separate the life posts and the AYCOOB/Story posts into different parts of the site. I don’t know something that gets us out there. I mean think about if we got into the conventions, how many views we’d get, we won’t need to advertise in collage bathrooms anymore.

 


So it’s been a while since I have posted. The reason being I had some personal issues I don’t wish to delve into as of yet. Maybe sometime later when all the dust has settled. However, this posed me to have a LAB day of my own once I found out it’s not all that bad. I’ll post pictures after I ask this one question.

This question is what compelled me to post today. I went to take a poop today and found the toilet seat broken, again. Yes, this is not the first time the seat has been broken. So here is my question. How do Luz and Eldwardo not have interesting poop stories when these mother fuckers have broken the toilet seat not only once but twice since my residency here. Really guys? This is not a noteworthy story? I think is is.

Anyway here is my LAB day picture courtesy of Luz:

Seriously though… I don’t…

If you ever knew you, you’d know that I am a poorly-dressed lameass… but lately… I’ve begun dressing like a douchebag. weirdly enough? I kinda like it. Nothing better than donning a light summer shirt, instead of a black longsleeve with the thumbholes cut into it.

On that thought, I have to go clean my expensive-ass bluejeans…
