I have RSS now. RSS is cool.

THE CJ CURRY EXPERIENCE: EPISODE 120
"LAST ONE ASLEEP, KILL THE LIGHTS AND MUSIC"

And so, we come to another season finale. Albeit a rushed one, so I'm just going to finish it here and be done with it.






No I'm not, because I've already pulled that trick on you all before. So I guess I'll finish by letting you know that I'm finishing for the season and for the year and that I'll be back in January or February or one of those ridiculously obscure months and have a seventh season and remind you that I'm only going to last ten seasons - that is, 200 episodes - before I give up and shut up and look at my other project, it's nearly done and I'm going to go to bed soon but before I do there are a few special mentions that I need to make about people. I will not mention names but I shall mention initials and you will know who you are, and if you have to ask, then you don't know who you are and you aren't on the list.
  • NL - for obvious reasons
  • AM, KH, SF, EC, MG, RB, RB, HT, TF, MR - for semi-obvious reasons
  • PF, BT, TB, LJ - for being IT-worthy
  • LB, KH, JF - for being unofficially IT-worthy (I shall indoctrinate you all eventually)
  • CM, EA - for being decent flatmates
  • CM - for being a decent flatmate-in-training
  • MT, MM, SM - for being kickass after the unthinkable happened
  • JY, JM, PF, LJ, AF, MW, GP, GB, KW, JS - for being an awesome team
  • GP, LM, AO, LR, SF, FS, WD, KV, SM, LB, JT, EP, SM, JT, LG - for being an awesome team-in-training
  • MG, AM, JF, HT, ND, TB, TT, SB, AC, RF - for being amazing upstairs neighbours
  • TB, DH, LM, DM, SM - for behind-the-scenes support
  • AG, MG, NL, LV, SM, DK, EC, RB, KW, NC, DB - for Isidore
  • TF - for the games of pool and Scrabble-on-Facebook that were inevitably closer than I initially thought
  • AF - for reminding me what it is to be CJ Curry
  • finally: CJ - for being CJ.
If you're not on the list and think you deserve to be, give me a yell. I may go deaf in the process, but I'll consider including you. If you have appeared twice or more, congratulations! You are Epic™.

See you next year!

It was all to stay awake for the longest.

  • THE CJ CURRY EXPERIENCE: EPISODE 100 + 19
"IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD, THE END OF THE WORLD, THE... AH, FORGET IT"

Gasp. Nearly done for the season and the year. So. So so so. What to talk about next... Um...

Um...

stuff?

Um...

I just wanna bump? >.<

Um...

you're kinda cute? Whoever you are, reading this, you're cute. Yeah. That'll do.

Um... no, screw it, I'm not "um"ing the whole post. I'm actually going to do something decent here.

Remember how I said back in episode 37 that they seek me with thimbles? It's the truth. They also really did threaten my life with a railway-share. But I'm still alive and I have driven to the Rat and it annoys me so I shall shut up and carry on.

Play by the rules!

THE CJ CURRY EXPERIENCE: EPISODE (six seasons minus two)
"STAND STILL, AND BE SWATTED!"

Recapping number two. I like number two. So I will recap it.

  1. JANUARY. I had fun. I stayed at college and made myself comfortable in the flat. I enjoyed the company of some fun people and had some pretty fun times, especially when I played the crickets. I watched the crickets as well, was introduced to the hot tub and saw Ratatat. Finally, I got some work two weeks in a row. I loved it.
  2. FEBRUARY. I had fun. Training, O Week prep, then finally O Week. The greatest week of the year. And I got to run some of the events, and learn some lessons about how I should run them next year, and oh my gods I had such a fun week. Oh, and thanks to the kids in red.
  3. MARCH. I had fun as classes started. I also bought my new BEAST OF A COMPUTER. In case you're wondering, no, it doesn't have a name. If I wanted to name it I'd probably name it something cool. But I don't. So I won't.
  4. APRIL. I had fun, though nothing special happened - normal boring uni stuff - until the end of the month, when I put my feet on Tasmanian soil for the first time. It took me over 21 years to visit this beautiful island. Thanks hugely to Nicole for taking me along! This now means I've visited every state and mainland territory of Australia, save Jervis Bay. But I doubt I'll ever get there. I've also never been to Brisbane. Close, though.
  5. MAY. I had fun asking "May I have a cookie please?" May was the month of Masterchef Season 1, and the Suitcase Ball. It was also assignment season and that was the kicker for me. But I survived, somehow, and I even got in a bit of time to go see Cut Copy with Lucas and Tom. Winning!
  6. JUNE. I had fun during exam season. In among it all, I managed to get StarCraft II and watch Mike get waxed. I had a scribble party (YAY), my first time running Swotvac events (YAY) and I somehow managed to fit in a party at Mia's in all that.
  7. JULY. Not fun. My wisdom teeth. Isidore. Re-O-Week. Enough said.
  8. AUGUST. I had fun. It was a fairly busy month, as it always is in august months, as Open Day, Gala Dinner and Co-Ordinator applications came and went and flew by and saw me becoming awesome again for next year. I enjoyed it. And the Census.
  9. SEPTEMBER. I had some fun, but not all of it. The unthinkable happened. It's more thinkable now, in retrospect. So I spent the rest of the month trying to get my head around the unthinkable. A trip to the Great Ocean Road and the college play kinda helped. A little. We're off to see the geezer...
  10. OCTOBER. I had fun, but what a busy month. Assignment season again, plus the zombie shuffle, coupled with training, added on to the college ball, combined with a lasertag session, this was a hella busy month. Seriously.
  11. NOVEMBER. I've had fun. It's been fairly laid back. I've met a new awesome friend and gotten closer to some other awesome people that I knew already but never got a huge chance to get close to. So to speak. It's exam season but I finish early and that means I get to have some fun. Yay!
  12. DECEMBER. Sorry, that's a secret. I'll have fun, though.

I don't wanna miss this.

THE CJ CURRY EXPERIENCE: EPISODE T20 Individual Record
"THERE IS NO TIME LEFT FOR WASTING"

Right. Facebook's Notes feature has decided that it's going to be a total jackass and stop importing stuff from Blogspot's RSS feed reader on November 22nd. So that means I have twelve days to smash out four posts to end the season before this happens. It's so I can at least have SOME kind of archive beyond Blogspot. (Way to go, Blogspot. You just surpassed Facebook as Most Awesome Blogging Site Evar.)

So I might as well make them all summing-up posts. First things first. 2011 has seen the introduction of a new project. If you've been featured in it, hooray! If you haven't: aww. There's still a month and a half left for you to be featured in it. Call me and I'll arrange a photoshoot. For those who have, don't worry, I will gracefully acknowledge you all come December 31. Trust me.

I saw 377 aeroplanes.

It's November. This means that I'm rapidly running out of months. Months be annoying. Which is why I've decided to punch the gas. Because I hate gas. And gas hates me. And it hates punching. Which isn't my problem.

I have two exams remaining: mechanics and algebra. I'm looking forward to the algebra one first, the mechanics one second. Which sucks, because the mechanics one comes first. HEAR THAT, EXAMS? YOU SUCK!

Oh yeah, and just so you lot know, I've made some pretty important decisions for my future. Here they are, in no particular order of importance:
  • I'm doing this shit again next year.
  • I'm also doing my real-world job again next year.
  • I'm switching from photos to videos next year.
  • I'm going to part-time for 2013. Assuming I survive the apocalypse.
  • I'm going to kill Ubuntu. Seriously.
  • I'm getting a job soon. I need moneys for games. And other stuffs.
I suppose I should sum up twelve months' worth of blog posts. So here it is.
  1. I emerge from my coffin of doom.
  2. Words of wisdumb.
  3. Turn the page.
  4. Ahrr. Ahrr ahrr ahrr ahrr ahrr. Ahrr ahrr. Ahrr.
  5. I'm positive I lost an electron.
  6. Because you told me to, is why.
  7. Lost in a mess of paperclips.
  8. Curse you.
  9. Don't talk, or I'll lose my balance!
  10. No, you may not have another cookie.
  11. I've been to paradise.
  12. My finest dream?
  13. Land of the great known.
  14. I looked at your bandannas, and thought of you.
  15. Who are your main tenants?
  16. What is this? I don't even...
  17. Hi. You're ugly.
  18. Pages and pages and pages...
  19. Your FACE is a beanbag chair.
  20. Well, that about wraps it up for another season.
  21. Colourless green ideas sleep furiously.
  22. My fork is forkier than your fork.
  23. What an august month.
  24. When will you learn? When will I learn?
  25. Toothpicks are shiny.
  26. Play with me. Learn with me. Sing.
  27. Whose butt do I have to kiss NOW?!
  28. "Go jump in the lake" has a literal meaning here...
  29. Everyone join in for the chorus!
  30. The bananas are back!
  31. Are you sitting comfortably? No? That sucks.
  32. Smile grotesquely the day after tomorrow.
  33. Collapse with me. Or else.
  34. Soundlabs, trains, and a barbeque.
  35. The undead sickness?
  36. Le danger!
  37. I don't wanna miss this.
  38. ???
  39. ???
  40. ???
Super green, huh?

Le danger!

THE CJ CURRY EXPERIENCE: EPISODE <episode number redacted>
"THERE IS MUCH MERRY TO BE HAD, AND NONE OF IT HERE"

You will.

That's all. You will.

I don't care what you will. You just will.

YOU. WILL.

Please? You will?

<ring ring> Hello? YOU WILL.

Will you?

Yes, you will. You will throw caution to the wind and you will. Because bugger caution.

You WILL.

You will, simply because I say you will and it's the best thing for you. So you will.

NO ARGUMENTS. You will.

It doesn't matter what you will, but you will.

You, uh, will.

You just will.

I swear, you will.

As long as I have breath in my body and as the various gods are my witnesses, I will ensure that, from here on in, I will continually hunt you down, regardless of whether you're in some arid climate or even in a freezing cold one and probably half dead from starvation or freezing or boiling in the first place, mind you that's a pretty damned stupid way to get away from me in the first place, but that's not the point, the point is, wherever you are and as long as I'm still alive and you haven't yet done this thing, I will make sure to find you and ensure that YOU WILL.

You... just... will.
