|Blu-Ray for All||July 31st, 2010|
Kris and I went to K-Mart today and I finally bought something that I’ve wanted for a while, a Blu-Ray player. I love movies, I usually watch them while I am working, so I will still stick with DVDs for the most part and Blu-Ray movies will be movies and stuff that I must have in high definition. Now the best part of the Blu-Ray drive? The price, it was only $30. It doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles like BD Live, but from my experience, if it is streaming over the internet, you most likely do not need BD Live, that’s why there’s YouTube. So far I bought Hot Tub Time Machine. I am already planning on buying Lost: The Complete Series when it comes out. That might have to wait if money doesn’t come through though, since I also planning on buying the unannounced Droid 2 that is said to be released in a matter of weeks, so hopefully that happens as well.

|Punch You in the Face||July 23rd, 2010|
What is wrong with people? I love how people think that since this is the internet you can just go ahead and try and screw others out of money and have no consequences because of it. In the real world when this happens someone will either be sued, or as I prefer, punched in the face. Wondering what I’m talking about? Well first let me start off by saying don’t ever work with 13 Gemini Designs, or as they are known on Freelancer.com, geminidesigns. They hired me to do a plugin for maxous.com and then more than a month after it was delivered they claimed it was broke and demanded a refund. When I refused and told them if it was broke I’d look at it, but seeing as how it was a month, it would probably be something else making it not work and my code, they put in a dispute against me on Paypal. I am still waiting to hear the outcome of it, but hopefully I will know soon whether or not Paypal will side with me or them. Hopefully they will side with me because I have proof they have lied already, they first said that they were in Australia, now they claim they are in India, so that was lie number 1, this bullshit about it not working is lie number 2 because I tested it after their claims and it was working.
In other news I am still waiting on my refunds from Disney. I got a partial refund to my Paypal account from them, but I am still waiting on the other payments I made to be refunded as well. Hopefully when that is all said and done my debt will be around $4,700 and not as high as it is now (close to $5,500).
In website news, I actually have done something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. Now in the previews section there will be book previews and television previews. I hope this will be popular for people who like watching television and reading books. I’ve actually wanted to have the television previews since I put up the previews section, but up until recently it wasn’t feasible.

|Almost Went to Florida||July 18th, 2010|
So I thought I would be going to Florida, bought new luggage and clothes for the trip, but I guess it’s not meant to be, at least not this year. The specifics aren’t important, it involves a surgery, some lack of funds, and just a bunch of stuff that got changed and misinterpreted. I guess a trip to Florida will have to wait a while.
In other news I had very limited work that I had to accomplish the last few days so I got the previews working again. I also set up my site’s own Facebook and Twitter accounts that will have the previews posted there. I didn’t post them on my own Facebook/Twitter account because I had some complaints that people would rather read about me and not previews, so I left it off my personal accounts. If your interested, it will mostly be site related, but you can follow lepslair at Twitter.
I am hoping the two above mentioned items allow me the opportunity to be more motivated for my site and for saving/paying back credit cards. If I can do either of these things then maybe you’ll be seeing more reviews, and whatnot. I am always looking for reviewers though, so let me know if you’re interested.
