Good god, have I really not blogged for a week!?

That's a record for me.

Time to get back into the daily schedule, and make a not-very-great blog every day now :D !!

Damn straight.

I don't really time to scour the internet for random links, so I'm just gonna rant/rave/complain/etc about the first thing to move past my window...


A Hummer.

Okay then, well.....I'm not a big fan of Hummer's. There's nothing really bad about the people who drive them (sometimes), but I'm not a big fan of driving 10 miles per gallon. Also, I don't like huge cars. Makes me feel like I'm compensating for something, and I just don't feel right when I'm 2 or 3 feet off the ground. Cars that are low to the ground just feel right, for some reason. But at the same time, I'm kinda terrified that a speed bump could kill a low-ridah.

Yeah, that's right....low ridah.
You gotta beef with my so cal accent, boi?

Colon, Right Parenthesis

I am just in a kick-ass, happy-as-a-clam, no-one-can-stop-me mood.
Probably has something to do with not making any blogs for a while.

Regardless,  here are random links. for optimists!

The name behind Scholar Dollar.

 I almost forgot why I kinda named myself Scholar Dollar.
 Just in case I completly forget, this blog is here to remind me. And I guess tell anyone reading this.

Well, I've been called a scholar and a gentleman many times in my life. And I disagree with both terms. I think of myself as an unintelligent ruffian. But that doesn't roll off the tongue very well, so scholar it is! I mean, just look at it:

and many others.

And I wanted something that rhymes with scholar, but "holler" doesn't really sound too nice....(damn you, Gwen Stefani)

Dollar is okay, I guess. I could always use some more, and it's a decent currency.

Now, the question is, how did YOU get your username?

This guitar:


That's a B.C Rich guitar. The Draco Flying V.
Quite possibly the most badass/funniest looking/ugliest guitar I have ever seen.
So many conflicting emotions.

But I heard from one my guitar-obsessed friends that while BC Riches are flashy, the sound quality is not that great.

But, man, I just wanna whip out a guitar like that, start shredding, and just be awesome.
So with that in mind, it's time that I learn how to play guitar.

Random links, as always:

What I want to do on guitar:

What I will probably start off with:

Vector art images; for making your site look purdy:

The Zombie Hunters: a zombie webcomic. (Tip: with comics, always start at the beginning!)

And for people who don't want to see guitars, vector art, or zombies, here's yooouuutuuube. (Actual site)

Getting better.

That's the last time I insult MMORPG's.
Especially one about zombies, and infections.

This weekend was just terrible. On Friday afterschool, I got a massive headache, and took a nap. I wake up all groggy and sick. The room was spinning, maaaan, the room WAS SPINNING. Just walking about took considerable effort. I constantly felt like throwing up....and I did.....6 times. I counted. I can kinda sympathize women with morning sickness now. And somehow, in between all this, I've managed to do some homework, check facebook, and make a blog. Priorities = in check. Also, thanks to everyone who sent in get-well comments and messages. It made me happy :3

Saturday was slightly better, but I was starving like a mo-fo. But getting out of bed was nigh impossible, so I just reached for some random piece of candy on the floor, and called it a meal. I kept sleeping, and kept getting tired, so I kept sleeping, but I kept on getting tired, so I kept on sleeping, and etc.

Now today, I woke up near 9 am, and more or less played videogames until noon-ish, before I realized, "hey, I'm not so sick anymore." And now, here I am. 80% recovered from some douchebag cold who ruined my weekend. This is the longest out of any cold/flu that I've ever had, in which I've spent most of my time lulling around in my bed, staring the ceiling, and only getting up to use the bathroom.

Now, I wanna ask some of my followers a few questions:

1. What's the longest you've been sick for?
2. Ever pretend you're sick, and just relax for the day?
3. Will you have a good day/evening/night?

random link of the day:
Really funny comics, quizzes, and stories. An awesome time waster.

me: sick.

im done. Ill go throw up.

This is where I complain about....

....Browser based MMORPG's.

I got into Urban Dead a year ago, and haven't played since two or three months ago. Well, I was rummaging around my internet history, and lo and behold, an Urban Dead page popped up. Nostalgia seeped through my mind, before it suddenly hardened, turned into angry feelings of grinding for exp, and shattered.

Don't get me wrong, I love wasting time on websites like Urban Dead. It's just that I don't wanna waste even MORE time trying to reload a pistol, missing every single shot (even though I have Pistol Proficiency, making my accuracy - oh god what I become) then moving to some Police Station to get more ammo, only to find out that the station's been overrun, and I just happen to run out of action points to move. Then, I get eaten by zombies, and I ragequit.

And when I stop playing for a long period of time and get back, the game just freaking changes on me. The HUD is now inverted, and hanging off of the edge. The zombies are now equipped with jet packs. You are not allowed to rotate your computer monitor past 20 degrees or else an airstrike is called upon your location.

Now, of course, I'm just kidding around with you, with the jetpacks and 20 degrees.

It's anything past 15.

Mike Portnoy has left Dream Theater


Hearing my favorite drummer leaving is godawful, you see.
No words cannot express this anger boiling within me.
But I might find one, with a little bit of luck.
Oh right; F

Have a good day.

Thor, Odin's son, protector of mankind, ride to meet your fate; your destiny awaits.

Ah, quite the manly title befitting this one picture I stumbled upon, even though Vikings and Spartans have nothing in comm-

-oh my god.

Brushing your teeth like a Spartan:

And with that outta way, let's get some Scholar-y ranting up in this neighborhood, yo.

I'm the biggest procrastinator that I know. This might sound like a confession, but I just want to just get it out of my chest. I put off on doing things well past the very last minute, and do it the minute after the last minute. It's not that there is stopping me from doing it, it's just that I don't care. I don't care that this essay is due next Wednesday, I'll do it next Friday. I don't care that I have to go see the doctor about this tumor, I can die by something else. It's really terrible, I really do need some professional help for this. In fact, I'm putting off on doing my homework, since multi-tasking by playing Left 4 Dead, checking facebook, listening to Amon Amarth, and blatantly putting in sneaky advertisements in this post is more important than 19th century England, brought to you by Coca-Cola.

Man, I don't hate school, or anything....but it just sucks.

Oh well. Might as well grow a pair and a beard, brush my teeth, and take notes about Jane Eyre.

Don't feel like blogging.

Really tired and stuff. It's Labor Day, why do I feel like a bag of lamesauce?
But here I am. Time to stop getting pissy, and start doing bloggy stuff.

And here's how to roast a chicken with some cans and an open flame:

Now, that site's awesome. Let that page for roasted chicken in a can be your gateway for everything odd in this world.

Here's a natural hallucinogen. Go have fun:

By clicking that Youtube vid, you agree that I am not responsible for any collateral damage upon your general well-being. :D

I'm gonna go sleep like a, like a....I don't have any simile's. Eh.

Machetes, typographies, and Nergal

I don't know what to expect from this film, to be honest.

I'm going to see the film with a bunch of my friends today. Well, it was more "SCHOLAR!!! u hav 2 seeee dis movie, yo!!!!" And well, I'm kind of a sucker to peer pressure. It might be okay, I mean, based on the trailers I've seen, it looks like it might kick some serious ass, but on the other side, it also looks REEEAALLLLYYYY cheesy, with the random explosion and fights, and Steven Seagal. Yes, Steven Seagal is in this movie. He was like....the 4th reason of why I wanted to see it. Jessica Alba is reason #3

I'll make a new blog post reviewing this movie either later tonight, or probably tomorrow.

Now, I can't just make a blog saying "gonna watch movi, brb lololololol." This blog post needs more sustenance!!

I love typography. Sometimes, I dream of Times New Roman, and Ariel Bold getting it on. Then I find myself utterly disgusted, and in need of new bed sheets. But this blog is really more about showcasing some dude's typography art. It's more or less some really cool fonts. I dunno if you can download it or anything, but it just looks cool.

Adam Darski, or better known by "Nergal," or even better known as "who?" is the singer of Behemoth. Now, for those of you aren't too hip with metal (did I just use hip and metal in the same sentence oh god i am terrible) Behemoth is a Black Metal Band. The band puts on face paint, play really low and death like melodies, and sing about Satan. But that's not the point here. The singer's been diagnosed with leukemia. And that shit will usually kill you. Hearing about this just depressed me, and I want you to be depressed as well. I kinda like Behometh.

And now, here's a kitten:

Somewhere, someone out there wuvs you.    -Cat

I haven't done very many scholar-y things lately

So let's just give you some random sites you might enjoy:

This site has a bunch of kick-ass infographics. It's like the cooler older brother of graphs, who regularly supplies you with a few answers for that Physics test you take every week. It's like that guy in the back of the bus who gives you "smelling" sugars, for FREE.....well, infographics are nothing like those two dudes, but it's pretty darn close.

A new thing every day. Be amazed, and whatnot. It's pretty cool at times, decent for others.


Need new music? Go right on ahead. Now, I know the website is kinda dark, and heavy-metal-y looking, but with a little searching, I'm sure you wade past the metal, and find something soft, unless metal is your thing. Melodic Death Metal is good stuff, but I guess Celtic Punk might be your thing.

Labor Day Weekend

Ah, labor day. A day of relaxation. A day to make the weekend a 3-day weekend, and the week after a 4day week. A day of no school for students who've already been in school for, or for others, the very last day for partying.

But you see, it's the start of the American Football season.

Life is great now.

Seattle Weather

First things first, I live in Seattle.
Go ahead, and make your grunge jokes, and Microsoft jokes, and etc, etc.

But one thing that just really pisses me off is the weather.  Today we get a bright-ass day with trees and birds all singing in tune. The children were frolicking through forests without fear of getting kidnapped by giant bugs. All the students were able to type at 1.5x their normal typing speed and gathered at the beach because they finished typing their report on Early Renaissance artists. And finally, little Timmy hugged his friend, Bob, and everyone laughed.

Yesterday, we had rainy-ass weather. The trees flew into the birds. The music they made was autotuned hiphop. Giant bugs were getting kidnapped by children. Students typed their Early Renaissance Artist report at 300x typing speed thanks to copy+pasting Wikipedia. Timmy hugged Bob........'s gravestone.

Tomorrow is probably our last sunny day for this year. I hear this winter is going to snowy as hell.
