ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The Discovery Channel says the captain of the “Deadliest Catch” fishing vessel Cornelia Marie has died.

Capt. Phil Harris suffered what his family described as a massive stroke on Jan. 29 while the boat was in port at St. Paul Island, Alaska. The 53-year-old fisherman was flown to Anchorage for surgery.

A Discovery spokesman says the Harris family contacted the network Tuesday evening with word of his death.

Discovery Channel spokeswoman Elizabeth Hillman issued a statement on behalf of sons Jake and Josh Harris. It says in part, “It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our dad — Captain Phil Harris. Dad has always been a fighter and continued to be until the end.”

In the network’s own statement, Hillman says, “We will miss his straightforward honesty, wicked sense of humor and enormous heart.”

There are no words to express how sad this news makes me. 😦

It has been 4 days since I played MW2 online – That is to say in an adversarial mode. I have zero desire to play deathmatch in that game because, honestly, I did all that in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (for non gamers). I am not saying it’s not fun, because it is, but at the same time, it isn’t. Why? Because no matter how much better things get, the players are always the same – A bunch of Halo-trained, bunny-hopping, non-aiming, run-and-gun, Ramboesque fucktards.

I am very much a tactical player – I believe very deeply in the idea of the tactical shooter game experience. I am the guy who is careful, the guy who checks his corners, uses suppressing fire to pin down the enemy, and smoke to provide my team an advantage in shifting positions/disguising movement. I do NOT like to die in these games – I take that as a sign of failure. In theory, the guy who is careful and bothers to aim at a target from cover should prevail, but that is not the case.

Your average gamer is a 9-to-22 year-old whose first gaming experiences online came from Halo or Quake – games that teach the player that whoever carries a rocket launcher or who sees the other guy first is the winner in ANY situation. These guys don’t care about how many times they die – they don’t look at that as a failure – they are simply driven by getting the next kill and teabagging the dead, and then proclaiming after the match that the guy that died is gay, whilst the guy simulating fucking another man in the ass is perfectly straight *cough*bullshit*cough*

This is why I prefer Co-Op gaming vs. AI on Veteran mode [in the case of the MW games] – because the enemy AI is comparable in challenge to most live gamers, and because the people on my friends list are players that play like I do – Tactically. They don’t run and gun, they are the few, the proud, the careful – and I can game with them and not die a thousand times at the hands of a guy that will run around corners, shooting wildly in the hopes of killing someone.

That all said, this is not me trying to hate on MW2, because the game, in its single and Co-Op play modes is simply breathtaking, its just playing against no-talent assholes irritates me. If anyone from Infinity Ward sees this, PLEASE give me some sort of adversarial mode that penalizes R&G fucktards and rewards those that actually have a measure of skill – IE something similar to America’s Army. Damn.

That is all there is to say about it.

The reason I have been distant from all my friends as of late has been Modern Warfare 2.

Tonight, I put that grand chapter of gaming behind me. I beat the game on the next-to-hardest difficulty, and I am setting the game down now, in hopes of resuming normal goings on amongst my friends.

The game itself was, in a word… Spectacular. That certain moment in the gulag made me smile from ear to ear (if you’re a COD4 fan, you know what I mean)… Then the final fight in the game near the end… the massive cliffhanger which CLEARLY sets the stage for either DLC, or a direct continuation of the unfinished objective in Modern Warfare 3… It was all… So epic. WELL worth the month wait since pre-order!

So the University of Florida listed a zombie apocalypse preparedness plan for students on its website. Many news organizations claim that its some sort of joke – something to laugh at.

It is no laughing matter. Zombies will one day walk the earth, after there is no more room in hell. I for one take this sort of thing seriously. Several of my friends take this seriously, but whatever, Mainstream Media. Keep laughing, but don’t come moaning to me when you fuckers get bitten, cause I for one will put a bullet in your heads.

Anyways, I have a date tonight! Woots!

A reminder for all Stargate Fans who bother reading this blog: STARGATE: UNIVERSE premiers tonight at 9PM EST!!!
