Now, as some of you may know, we here at SEGASonic:Radio have been toying with the idea of a full on relaunch for an unbelievably long time now… All we’ve had consistently running through our airwaves as the station’s activity all but shut down were Biafra Republic’s A/V Hijack and TurboXLR’s Turbo Drive Live… However, I am happy to inform you that the fabled relaunch is finally upon us, but we need your help!
There have been quite a few changes going on behind the scenes, some of which I can publicly disclose. One: I, VizardJeffhog, have inherited the position of Station Manager from BlitzChris, leaving me in charge of all things SS:R. Two: EAR (who you might recall as one of the musicians behind The Sonic Stadium Music Adventure series, the man behind the Mad Rabbit Podcast, and a talented DJ over on KSBR 85.5’s The Mix as well as OC Rock Radio’s Monday Night Meltdown) has recently accepted a position here and joined our happy family!
And four! …no, wait a minute… Three! You. Yeah, you! No, not the one sitting next to you (well, maybe him/her too)! You’re here because you absolutely love music, right? You’re here because you love the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, right? Do you think you have the same passion as myself, Biafra, Turbo, EAR, Blitz, and Speedknux? Do you have the capability to be a team player with the rest of us? Well, good! Because we’re looking for folks like you!
SEGASonic:Radio is scouting for volunteer DJs to help keep that ball of music rolling around at the speed of sound. If you think you have what it takes to audition, then read on!
I need to get a crown fit for my tooth. At some point it got a filling and shortly after that (or possibly during that, I don’t trust these dentists 100% but they’re the best for the price) it got 6 cracks running from the filling to the edge.
I lost 3 pieces and finally went to get something…
Wow, and I thought three extractions (two of which were for teeth that had chunks out of them) were bad enough. I hope they’re giving you something to cut down any residual pain…
In the last few days, I’ve realised a few things about certain members of my family; specifically my Dad.
He owed me £1000 and has now come out and said that he doesn’t believe he owes me this money any more. As such, I have cut him from my life for being a lying, thieving scumbag that I am far…
In case you missed the occasional Twitter post our FourSquare check-in, last year I worked for HostGator.com for a few months. While the pay was nice, and a new phone was gotten, I had a feeling the guy at the top, Brent Oxley, had largely checked out. I was introduced to one of his lieutenants at the time during my second interview, and when I got the job, was given a tour of the Houston offices (which surprisingly did not include an office for Brent.
Hostgator was a nice company to work for, and it was a shame that my tickets per hour didn’t get to a high enough level to keep working there. I have only three gripes about them as a whole.
1.) Some of the managers (then Chat Tech manager Nathon H. to cite an example) act as they have authority over all they see when they are listed as in charge of a single department. They also act like douches some of the time toward other employees.
2.) The catering. The chef in charge lets his assistants prepare the food for the graveyard shift, and THEY DO NOT REMOVE THE BONES FROM THE CHICKEN BEFORE CHOPPING IT UP, LEAVING BONE FRAGMENTS IN THE LUNCH!!!
3.) The rumored buyout by EIG. This is my super-gripe about Brent, who was in favor of John McCain to win in 2008. The below quotes are sourced from the leaked email at http://pastebin.com/nV9bc7Cv and reported on numerous sites already, along with possible “what we think he means” witty retorts.
”* I want to travel the world before my wife and I have kids.”
Read: He wants to go ex-pat with his wife soon
”* I’ve been doing HostGator since I was 18, and I’m looking for a new challenge.”
Read: My life is hollow and without meaning.
”* I’m extremely worried about the financial path our country is headed down.”
Read: I need a better tax haven to move to
”* Taxes will be going up significantly in 2013, making it more difficult for business owners.”
Read: With healthcare reform rules constitutional by the Supreme Court, I might actually have to spend some money on health benefits for the employees.
”* I’ve failed more times than I can count to launch software that would allow us to compete as a registrar.”
Read: I’m too lazy to push the button and publicly launch the in-house registrar (Launchpad dot com) I got accredited last year
”* We have tried and failed to develop a billing system that has automated and can integrate with our key systems such as chat, phone, affiliates, and tickets. I think we are finally on the right track, but unfortunately I no longer have the patience to wait for it to all come together. Thankfully EIG has tackled a lot of these challenges already.”
Read: Our Billing and ticketing system is a piece of shit, as well as the phones and chat. Integrating them is too much work to bother with.
”* I have practically 100% of my chips in HostGator and if something should ever happen to the company, I’d more than likely be bankrupt in a matter of a few months.”
Read: My investments (outside from real estate) have drastically underperformed.
The letter goes on to mention him leasing the main office/converted bank building in Houston, and the one in Austin, back to EIG.
In short, HG has many little issues which could possibly get worse in the long run…

I got 15. Apparently I suck at teals and the pinkish ones XD;
I got 3. I suck at the colour teal only apparently.
This is actually surprising to me. While our minds are trained to recognise reds and yellows. Our eyes pick up green the best :B Buuuut. I guess with it being on the blue side less surprising. Our eyes struggle the bluer and more violet colours due our eyes not picking up higher wavelengths! \o/ (The sky scatters an indigo-blue FYI, we just can’t see the the purple side of it too well.)
(Also here’s my results)
Also yes. I did just nerd this post up.
This made my eyes go weird trying to do it X.x Fffffff.
