My tumblr

http://rootfish.tumblr.com/

This is news to all of none of you who read this blog. I have updated it very sporadically as I usually just post on Facebook. Also for a while the main focus of this blog was Golden Tee but due to financial reasons and that a Golden Tee Live was no where to be found in the city, the blog kinda died.

Moochers.

     "An 'Obligationist' ... Yes, you know one ... Perhaps you are one? It's that person who's name causes you to roll your eyes and taste the metallic acid of dread in the back of your throat. The Obligationist is the reason that you screen your calls. The Obligationist is the person behind the dreaded holiday dinner that ruins the spirit for the day. The Obligationist is the person who "volunteers" to help you out, just to be "a friend", then reminds you of that favor for the rest of your living days. The Obligationist is the person who is somehow in your life, but you can not figure out what terrible thing you did, in this life or some other, that you should deserve this. The Obligationist is a vile person who feeds on your life energy so it can feel alive.

     This is someone who keeps showing up in your life like dogshit on your shoe. This person is a continuous source of frustration and irritation. A gnat circling your head in the night, it's incessant buzzing waking you just before you drop off into peaceful sleep. They are like a rash that will not go away. Obligationism is an artform for the losers of our world ... It is a black art. A dark craft practiced by people without a clear vision of "self".
They will find something that you need, or get involved with someone who you can not avoid. It is as difficult to rid yourself of the Obligationists as it is to rid your body of a wart, or an infestation of lice ... Serious measures must be taken. The question is; Are you willing to do what must be done? The Obligationist will always try to have some sort of hold on you. It is not easy to escape once one has latched on.

     Perhaps your Obligationist is a family member? ... Perhaps someone you thought was a friend? A neighbor? Maybe someone you had sex with one foolish drunken night. Perhaps an ex-lover whom you feel sorry for? Oh yes!, sympathy is one of the greatest weapons in the arsenal of the Obligationist . Sympathy and guilt are their weapons of choice. Many an Obligationist will be stricken with serious and debilitating illness, (or feign it!). The Obligationist will use their illness or handicap to control you! They will milk it for every inch of sympathetic POWER it will give them! And BEWARE of any person who does you a FAVOR! This too, is a weapon of the Obligationist. THE DREADED "FAVOR!" If you let an Obligationist do you even the smallest favor, they will bind you with it as if it were chains of iron! Only your life's energy can repay the Obligationist once you are obligated!

     The web of the Obligationist is tangled and complex. One obligation leads to another, and another, AND ANOTHER, until you are caught as a fly trapped in the lair of a spider! ... The Obligationist instinctively pounces upon any weakness you may have. The things which make us human, our caring natures, our generosities and pity. These are the qualities which the Obligationist will attempt to exploit to control you!

     Why? What is the reason for this Obligationistic behavior? It is jealousy, envy, insecurity and fear! The Obligationist is a weak quivering thing masquerading as a normal person. A tiny naked being shivering in the dark cold closet of their head. The Obligationist is jealous of your life! Jealous because theirs is empty and devoid of meaning. The Obligationist has no substance, so it must feed on yours! They must seek, through trickery, to obligate others to be part of their shallow lives. Since the Obligationist has no confidence in their own identity, they are driven to create a symbiotic relationship with you! They are as Vampires, stealing your soul by devouring your energy, your time and attention.
We all have them. Admit it or not, there is one or more in your life. I wish you well, and may I suggest that you look at yourself, and try to recognize that part within you that is ... an Obligationist!"




I've quoted this from the site of artist R.S. Connett. His website is here. This explanation of "obligationists" perfectly captures my feelings for moochers and so called "friends" who are only around when you have something to give them. People I have encountered over the years fit this description and I am in the process of trying to remove such people from my life. The picture above is also from his site and I have added it to this post as addicts are amongst the worst "obligationists" and moochers around.

So I finally beat my old Golden Tee Live score of -18 and got a -20 with 7777 GT points the other day on The Great Wall! My old score was on Bonnie Moore. The new game in question was a glory elite game on blue tees, e-lite I think as I came in first place.

Great shot on The Great Wall.


Charles Shultz corpse is spinning so fast it fuels the evil soul of Jim Davis.

Welp thats the last of the Halloween stuff for now. Man I play like shit over at the Wildcard but I play much better at the Pioneer House. I think I'm just used to the machine over there and its better maintained and much more consistant. Also first greatshot video of the Great Wall!

Venture Bros season 4 premiere tottally fucked up on the west coast!



Good news! The premeire of The Venture Bros season 4 was tonight! Bad news! I live on the west coast and instead of showing the entire episode it just reran the first 15 minutes twice! At first I thought they were either pulling a Wondershowzen or it would show the same timeframe from someone elses perspective. Nope just a massive fuck up! Someone is definatly getting fired for this. And of course the Adult Swim boards went total ape shit. Apparently the episode wont show up on the Adult Swim website till next week. You can watch the second half on youtube here where it looks like someone recorded it with a camera or something... Watch it quick until youtube pulls it!

Originally this post was supposed to be about the premiere but seeing it chopped up its hard for me to write about than what it was originally intended to be viewed. Also its fun to post about fuck ups.

EDIT: Ok saw it at 4am and they fixed their fuckup. Also contrary to rumors the episode is available on the AS here. Though not as epic as the season 2 premiere it still was pretty good, though I'm kinda getting tired of Sgt Hatred ecspecially now that he seems to have filled the Brock role of the boys bodyguard. Highlights: Fat Brock. Helper attached to the walking eye. Cameos by Bigfoot, Steve Winters and Holy Diver. Hunter Gathers as a triple agent, and apparently not a woman? And Sphinx is back. Ha ha,just caught a commerical on Adult Swim that about the fuck up so they are going to show this episode Monday through Friday at 1230 am.

Hole in ones 6 thru 9


This is the first time I got a hole in one other than Bonnie Moore, namely Sunny Wood.


Second video is the first time I ever I played on Cumberland, a classic 2005 course that is currently available to play at the Pioneer house. Also featured is the costume you get from the Halloween give away code of this year.


Third hole in one is my first youtube of 2010 and Monument Valley.


Second hole in one in two days!

Hey I just noticed the unintended sexual innuendo of the title. 69. HURR HURR HURR! Also I'm going to start posting the videos in High Details from now on.

Card slot on the Golden Tee at The Wildcard fixed.



Went to the Wildcard today to participate in their weekly tuesday Buzztime trivia contest and they have their card slot fixed. Probably because I was there last weekend, (and seeing it still had not been fixed), went to someone working there to talk about it and apparently their vendor guy was in the restauraunt! Still don't know if the dollar bill accepter is replace though... So I take back what I said about vendors not giving a shit about their machine, so far the guilty party is the Wildcard.

Golden Tee at Cashmere fixed, (a lot better).


Here's an excuse to use this picture.

Talked to a couple of guys who hang out their the other day and the vender seemed to fix the track ball a lot and turned the classic courses to 2005. I played a game of Kanagroo trail with them and the trac ball seemed to be working fine. Except it was kinda weird, you couldn't use your GT card or a credit card to pay for the 2005 games. Anyway was first time I tried that year's courses let alone Kangaroo trail. I barely beat them with a -18 woo! So disregard what I said about the Cashmere vender in the previous post, though the Wildcard one is probably sitll broken, dunno havn't been back there since.

Quitting Golden Tee for a while...


Vendors around here don't give a fuck if their machines work right...

Fed up with the local machines around here. To be blunt, they suck. The nearest one is at the Wildcard and last Friday some asshole put a coin in the card slot, and the dollar reciever has been broken in forever. They probably won't fix it so fuck 'em. Also the one in The Pioneer House in Cashmere has a messed up trackball. So until they get fixed or I have enough money for my own machine I won't be playing GT for a bit. I spend way too much money to play on fucked up machines.

Hole in one on hole 13 on Bonnie Moor!

My 5th hole in one!

Used a thumb shot on this one. Got like a -4 on the 18 hole course due to jackasses on the Big Buck hunter Pro right next to me crowding me. Also I got a Mexican Sombrero with this shot. Been getting a lot of hats for my golfer lately, seems to be coming in streaks the clothing type I win lately.

Commemorating The Switch


The latest shit storm to hit Golden Tee...

In lieu of all the hubbub surrounding "The Switch" cheat on Golden Tee, I'm temporarily changing my golfer's name to "Rootswitch!"

Won $25 in Buzztime Trivia over at the Wildcard!


Buzztime Trivia, making drunks feel stupid for years....

Won $25 gift certificate for the second time over at The Wildcard today. Beat the local players at Showdown on Buzztime Trivia. Barely won and barely got enough people to play to have a gift certificate being given out. Got a free meal out of the deal so I can't complain.

4th hole in one! (with Rootfish)


She's riding in her vaginacopter, Rootfish is going to vag you down!

Oh yeah, it's also my first double eagle with Rootfish!, second double eagle ever.

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Won't be playing Golden Tee for a LONG while...


FUCK YOU.

Messed up my hand pretty good. Hit the corner of the garage as hard as I could. My hand should be broken but it does seem to be pretty swollen at the wrist joint. Long story short, family bullshit. Also not playing Golden Tee for a while because of financial and family drama, until I can be on my own with disposable income. That is all.

New all time score on Golden Tee -18



The other night broke my all time record on Golden Tee on Bonnie Moore of -17 to a -18. This may not be a big deal to some of you bangers out there but have been getting so close to beating my score but I always choke. Slowly but surely I'm getting better. I play at least once a day of glory on Bonnie Moore. Why Bonny? Well its the easiest of the 09 courses, and also the course I have the most exprience with. Also its my best chance of getting birdies and eagles so I can earn clothing faster.

3rd hole in one.


3rd hole in one for Rootfish!

3rd hole in one for my only character on GT now. Got an angry call from Steve Sobe to quit sandbagging with different cards. So probably no money until they unveil their ranking system in Golden Tee 2010, maybe...

Sunday, June 21, 2009

Found out something I didn't know about Golden Tee...


The card of choice for the D2 sandbagger.

Ok so this probably isn't news to a lot of you GT vets, but the other day I was using my Golden Tee cards to play 3 free holes when I figured out you can use your debit/credit card or any card that money can be put on it to get 3 free holes. So pretty much the same cards that can be used for prize games, (Silver strike bowling cards, Gift cards, etc.), can be used to swipe for 3 free holes once on that machine.

Two Hole in ones in two days!

Slam dunk!

Last time got a hole in one was over a month ago and I got one on Monday and another on Tuesday. Though the 2cnd one didn't give me a great shot code, as it was only 113 yards, though both were on Bonny Moore,(of course).

Of users of people, users of drugs.


Most of the shitbags in Wenatchee.

Tired of big fat fucking phonies who pretend they are my friend but just want something from me. People who use me as their emotional punching bag and just want to look big in front of themselves and their friends. People who think they are alpha males but are in fact the opposite, zeta males whose crippling sense of inferiority and insecurity cause them to shit on others. Tired of people who when they either get what they want or I am of no immediate use to them put me back on their shit list. And if your one of those reading this FUCK YOU. I'm a pretty damned nice guy and you used my friendship to wipe your ass with. I put my life on hold these last 4 years to watch my Father who has Alzheimer's because no one else in my family is willing to do it. I have also been battling depression most of my life and finally am on a medication that let me get a grip with it and be able to function in a halfway decent matter. And yet I have had friends in the past who used my docile nature and depressed state to manipulate what they wanted from me. NO MORE. I'm really pissed off right now and it just amazes me how people have no fucking shame.

Golden Tee at George, Washington


By the gorge at George.

Last Saturday my quest for Golden Tee knowledge lead me to George,washington. I live in the nearby town of Wenatchee,Washington which is about a 40 mile trip. What lead me there was to visit Cuse1, who I met on the golden tee forums. He was excited to know that someone who was into golden tee was nearby as we live in the boonies. So I traveled over there to the rivershark pub and taught me many things about golden tee.

I've been playing since about August 2008 with around 300 games under my belt, he quoted me that he has played around 19,000. So naturally I was eager to learn. He was a very nice guy and owned the two GT machines in the bar. He also treated me to free games on his dime while he showed me many a lesson. He showed me how to chip with any club, anwhere near the whole. I learned many things such as that roll decreases the balls loft while backspin increases it, as well as there being gameplay differences between the male and female golfer. After about 5 or 6 games it was getting dark and I had to get going. I plan on coming back in about a month to hang out and be blessed with his sage advice. Coming back into town I felt like moses just came down from the mountain. I may be sounding a little melodramatic but I have been getting frustrated with the game lately and been getting bad scores. With this new information my game can only improve from here. Not only did I get some real good advice but I made a friend.

Hole in one on Bonnie Moore!


Sexecutioner ready to sexecute!

This is my 5th hole in one ever and my second one with Rootfish! I took cuse1 advice to use a 6 iron to chip in this game as well for the first time and made two long chips in that game. That advice was golden, like gold in a mine baby!
