Are you sick and tired of Imperial Stormtroopers who can’t aim or blast the side of a barn to save their lives? Are you sick and tired of Jedi Apprentices who can’t find peace without a Master? Well, enter the Stormtrooper drop-out, Jedi outcast, and bounty-hunter-in-black~~ “Punk Trooper”, lol.
Like I first explained in my second audio broadcast and teased again in my last post, I dressed up (or God-forbid “cosplayed”, lol) in my original character for the Halloween lunch at work. And as my video hopefully shows, it was a “blast”, pun intended, hehe.

Not bad, eh? Okay, well, not too lame, lol. But I basically ran around in my costume for a couple hours, shooting video pics and scaring kids along the way, before it finally tired me out and forced me back to work. Luckily, mine seems to be one of the more amusing costumes and the email-your-photo contest for next week might actually win me something! Wish me luck, lol. Here are a couple of shots of my boring cubicle. The desktop is so outdated, I actually bring my own laptop to work, lol.
After coming home from work, Lisa told me that I was invited to her boyfriend Jason’s “Rock Band 2” Halloween mini-party. So I thought, “Why not?” In fact, she was dressing up as “Frankenhooker“, the title character from the 1990 cult-classic black-comedy film, haha. Here’s the trailer below, lol.

When we were both finally ready to go, we took a few timer-set shots. Guiness the Menace did whatever he wanted, lol. But not bad!
So after I followed Lisa’s car to Jason’s apartment, the three of us, plus Rebecca (the Smurf) and Vu (the Pimp) played “Rock Band 2” for ten songs or about an hour. And guess what? Even though it was my first time, and the bass guitar was set to “Easy”, my average was still 95% after 10 songs! Damn! Even they were pretty impressed. I told them, “I was born to play bass!” Well, a fake version of bass, lol. Can’t wait to see the pics of us playing, hahaha.
After “Rock Band 2” ended and the second-hand pot smoke began to dissipate, Lisa helped Jason assemble his “Werewolf in Suit” costume, lol. It was hilarious seeing them struggle with the black eye paint! I managed to take a few photos with Jason’s camera, hehe. And when we were all ready, I followed their carpool to the next bigger party. Unfortunately, I didn’t know anybody there. Just what seemed to be grad students, teaching assistants and such. I talked with one guy who tried to dress as Sasuke from “Naruto”. But he was just another arrogant cigarette-smoking “Narutard, Bleachtard, Death-Notard” bastard who couldn’t stop boasting about his victory in a legal case against his internet-criminal ex-wife. Whatever, go ahead and sip your snotty wine. LOL.
But shortly afterwards, I told Jason to tell Lisa I was leaving. And Jason was kind enough to walk me back to my vehicle. Overall, it was a fun afternoon, fun evening, but a long day. Maybe I’ll join them for another night of “Rock Band 2” sometime soon. Well, that’s it for now. Thanx for reading. May the Punk be with you! ^_^
P.S. For those of you who don’t know what “CommentLuv” does (bottom of comment box), it’s a cool feature which reads your blog URL (if you have one) and auto-adds your last blog post to the end of your comment. Like I said, cool, eh?
