FUCK YOU, 2003

Good:SDCC2003. Fuck yeah, that whole SUMMER, was just... one of the best I could ever hope for.
Bad: GIRLS. Sure, I've had a fair share of good moments, BUT, that does not redeem the overwhelming retardedness of what I put up with. Now, I don't really blame myself...I BLAME THEM. Fucking girls.
Ugly: 1992 Ford Thunderbird. OH YEAH, the "G-Ride." It comes up with more problems than I can get money to fix it. It is currently sitting in the driveway with HALF AN ENGINE. Fuck that shit.

DIE A HORRIBLE DEATH:American Idol 'stars.' And all current pop sensations in general, except for those I list. And Chingy. And Lil Jon. And the Eastside Boyz. And the Ying Yang Twinzzzz.
YOU DON'T ROCK: Limp Bizkit. Just stop, seriously.

Guilty Pleasure: Justin Timberlake (Fuck you haters, hahhaha)
Best Show I've been to: Hieroglyphics @ Sac State. Although this was the ONLY show I've been to all year, it still rocked on numerous levels.
Thank GOD for: Brand New, as well as Hot Hot Heat. Everything else that played on the airwaves this year was just hardrock assburps that all sounded the same.

Best Album/s: The Black Album (Jay-Z), Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (OutKast). Hip Hop is given a slight breath of new life, which makes these picks best.
Runner Ups: Turn on the Bright Lights (Interpol), Deja Entendu (Brand New), Give Up (The Postal Service), Absolution (Muse), Sleeping With Ghosts (Placebo), Transatlanticism (Death Cab For Cutie). All of these ROCKED on equal levels. Too hard for me to put them up over the "Best Albums" I picked.

Best of TV: Hah, I watched less TV this year than last year, which is good. So ALL of it sucks, except for cartoons.
Best Movie/s: Kill Bill, Return of the King, The Last Samurai, X-Men 2
Best Actor/s: Johnny Depp. Hands down.
Best Actress/es: Halle Berry. She kind of sucked in X-Men 2, but she's still tops.
Worst Movie/s:Matrix Reloaded/Revolutions. MOST OVERHYPED, EXPENSIVE piece of shit EVER.
Surprisingly Good Movie: The Rundown.
Hottest Girl: Keira Knightley
Hottest Guy: Tom Cruise.
Porn Star: Charmane Star/Kaylani Lei

Game of the Year: Soul Calibur 2. BIYATCH!
OMGOMG: Viewtiful Joe, Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Final Fantasy Tactics, Boktai
Best Gaming Platform/s: Xbox and Gamecube are tied. PS2 sucks.
Multiplayer Madness: Mariokart Doubledash!! OH SHIT, it's insane.

Best Comicbook/s: 1602 (Neil Gaiman, Andy Kubert)
Best Story: Batman "Hush" (Jeph Loeb, Jim Lee)
Best Manga/s: Naruto (Masashi Kishimoto), One Piece (Eiichiro Oda). Thank you Shonen Jump. Priest (Min-Woo Hyung)
Coolest Character: Roronoa Zoro (One Piece)

Defining Moment: August 13th, 2003. This one day alone is the reason why I hate and love girls at the same time.
The Most HAMMERED: December 19th, 2003. Jaclyn's Graduation Party. Played Super Street Fighter 2 for shots. HAHA.
The Least Hammered: Residence Inn on July 3rd with family. Played "Spoons," drank quite a bit, yet was not as faded as I thought.
Best Party: August 8th. Diana's 20th birthday party. 10 hours of party/kickit/drinking.
Worst Party: Amador's friend's apartment. A packed apartment downtown, and I knew a total of 1 person there. YAY.
Marathon of: Sleeplessness:July 2-4, 2003. Awake for 40 hours on a trip to LA/Orange County, which was followed by "The Least Hammered" that night.
Most/Least Wealthy: Earlier this year, I bought a $1400 iBook, while working nearly full-time for the state at $8.30 an hour. Currently, I am jobless, hah!

Final Verdict: Pirating wireless cable internet is grand. BitTorrent ROCKS.

Winter: El Cabino/Cabin Fever. OHYEAH. APE in February, hopefully my first mini-comic will be made. Freelance work hopefully pays for a new website.
Spring:Work work work. Earn money to spend, maybe save some for the inevitable BIG MOVE. Las Vegas trip, hopefully. The BIGBAD21 goes down. Shit'chyeah.
Summer: SAN DIEGO, here I come. Woop woop!
Fall: Gear up for some serious snowboarding in the '04-05 season. I need a board/bindings/boots.
Movies I will definitely watch: Troy. Spiderman 2. Hellboy! Kill Bill vol.2. The Passion of the Christ (maybe). Hidalgo. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. I, Robot. The Bourne Supremacy (maybe).

I KNOW. I promised I'd be done with this, but circumstances grew out of my control, as went down permanently earlier in December 2003. you just had to put in one last jab at me, didn't you, MR. BIGBAD '03.

But this is it. Some final words on that horrible year, and maybe a look at 2004 can be. I've had enough of the 2003 and the crap it assaulted me with, so OPTICA has it's last stand here and now. Whether it survives the final grips of 2003 is yet to be known.
