Friday. Be there.

Posted in Rants and Raves with tags , on July 15, 2009 by Just Zach

It all goes down then.  2.0 launch.  Finally and for real.  I just got called onto my shift a few hours early, so Dan will have to give you the details on the new site… but trust me, it’s cool.

Be on the lookout too, for another written post.  I’m going to announce the details on our first major contest.  What’s at stake to win?  A guest spot in one of our episodes!  And not these ones we shoot on the webcam, no… the high quality stuff.  Yeah.  And pie, as well.  There’s also pie to be had.  But I’ve probably said too much.

So tell your friends.  Tell them to tell thier friends.  Be here on Friday.  You shant be disappointed.


Code Gorillas

Posted in Random with tags , on July 13, 2009 by Danny Methane

It’s been a helluva long time since I’ve coded anything. At all.

I took a course in 10th grade which taught me how to code in java, and I’ve long since forgotten most of it. That all changed this weekend when Zach hit me with this idea he has for out new layout. Continue reading

This week…

Posted in Random with tags on May 21, 2009 by Just Zach

Was not a great week here at the Just Action News.  I started my Maymester course already in summer brain-drain mode, and it’s bit me in the ass just a little bit.  Dan’s been working Capcom levels of crazy work hours.  What do I mean by Capcom levels?  How many versions of Street Fighter 2 did that company put out?  A million.  And the naming conventions?  Holy Jeezus.  “Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix”.  By thier count, Dan worked a Super Double Terminating Megatron Overtime 2: Electric Boogalo: This Time It’s Personal- The Revenge.

So if you feel cheated this week for updates- I hear ya.  Really.

It gets worse though.  No video this week.  Dan just hasn’t been able to set aside a block of time to shoot.  Even with our pared down timetable for shooting.  Blame him.

But never fear, for I do have some unique & worthwhile content for today.  A teaser, as it were.

New material at the JAN 2.0 page.  You won’t be disappointed.  I hope, anyways.  Maybe it’s just my design geek talking, but there’s a tasty little morsel for the faithful.  Good things are coming soon.

Crowdsourcing My Health

Posted in Random with tags on May 20, 2009 by Just Zach

I think I’ve got a blogging bug.

As a means to enforce my diet, I’ve begun writing about my daily caloric intake. I’m trying to loose 57 lbs. by 12/31.

I’ve launched my new blog at my other account @ Crowdsourcing My Health. It won’t be nearly as entertaining as the Just Action News is, but I certainly hope it’ll be interesting for everyone to read while I try to drop back under the 200 pound mark.

So yes. Check that out and enjoy. Help me loose weight by means of peer pressure.

Oh For The Love of F%$*

Posted in Rants and Raves with tags on April 23, 2009 by Danny Methane

So, today, I’m supposed to bring you a text filled rant or rave about something or other that Zach and I can argue about since it gets us more views.

Well f%$* that s%$*.

It’s nothing to do at all with you guys. I still love you, and depending on how I feel after work tomorrow, I might do an actual article to please you in ways your partner never could. But until then, I give you REASONS for my unexpected hiatus and relying on douchebaggery.

First, I forgot to tell Zach that I wouldn’t be able to do a column today. Entirely my fault for the reasons following this.

Second, Wednesday, I woke up at 11:00AM. I started work at 5:30PM. I did not get home until 5:00AM. Went to sleep at 6:00AM Thursday, woke up at 1:00PM Thursday, work from 3:00PM to 11:00PM Thursday. Today, I have to be up for work at 6:00AM and work from 7:00AM to 4:00PM. So, out of the past 72 hours (this 24 included) I have worked 25 hours. I have slept 23 hours. And spent a total of 24 hours doing things other than work/sleep.


So, again, I’m sorry for the lack of a post tonight. I’ll try and write like a review of a song.

I’ve got it!

Working Man by Rush

We listened to this song tonight while closing the store down. Not only did we get more work done, we had fun while doing it, and had some great music to listen to. Rush is a great band and if you’ve never gotten to listen to them, I feel sorry for you. I chose this song because it fits tonight’s theme perfectly.

I get up at seven, yeah
And I go to work at nine
I got no time for livin
Yes, Im workin all the time

See how that works out?

Enjoy your night,

-Danny Methane

So you’re stuck with two cop outs!

See, I don’t feel like writing because yesterday was my birthday. Yep, the all unimportant 19. Stuck between 18 and 20. Poor 19. Never gets any respect. Anyways, since I have nothing substantial to run, so I guess I’ll just tally up what I got, and what I plan to get with it.

So, here we go.

$65 cash. Probably buy a game or something.
$20 gift card to borders. Hello A+ certification book
$5 gift card to a comic store. Good enough for one comic.
My parents are going to go in with me to buy my new cell phone.

So, yeah. There ya go. Not much in the way of quantity, but you can’t beat the quality.

I also had a badass birthday dinner, thanks to everyone who went. Those wings are still kicking my ass.

But things have come up lately. Mainly, my parents leaving town and me having massive parties at my house.

Okay so there weren’t any parties, but they were still massive.

Anyways. I was sitting and thinking to myself: What would be a good way to get in touch with the readers?

The answer was clear! Answer viewer mail!

But we don’t have any. We’re looking to do an entire episode set to answering questions from viewer mail, but we have none! So get to writing. our inbox is lonely, and we’re waiting.

Just write us with any commentary, questions, concerns, love letters, anything. Write us. We’ll get back to you, and if you’re lucky, it’ll be on air or on here.
