I went to Cozumel (Mexico), Grand Cayman (Cayman Islands), and Ocho Rios (Jamaica).
The trip was amazing!
The Monster Rancher on DVD Petition now has 207 signatures!!!!!!!!!!
I should get more into trying to get the whole series released...
Monday, December 10, 2007
I just want to tell you all that I am going to start posting here a lot more often because I'm going to take college classes next semester and I'll have more free time!!!! (a little more, but at least I'll have that!)
I'm going on a cruise between Saturday and Saturday, to Jamaica, Mexico, and another place! (It's on Carnival, so I hope it's good)
And I've decided to keep track of all the times that I see people talking about waffles on TV!
Okay, so the first one I'm keeping track of is 30 Rock, where in the episode aired on Nov. 15th, Somebody to Love, Tina Fey walks in and asks her roommate "Are you making waffles?" and she ends up getting into a strange conversation with some of co-workers about the waffles.
I'll upload the video within three months.

Why, you ask?
Well, I got a job at the Best Buy in Fargo as a cashier, so if you see an amish looking guy, just make sure to ask them if they are Amish Gramish.
I also have Assassin's Creed on the PS3 (WOOT!!!!) now, and I'm going to be playing a lot more games than I usually do, because Haze is coming out soon and I need to beat a lot of other games I already have and/or will get.
Well, blog to you later!
I am active on www.gametrailers.com now, so if anyone joins, make sure to say that AmishGramish sent you! That's where I'm on a lot of the time...

I'm hoping that either they just re-name PSM, and keep all the staff members, or they can just make two PlayStation magazines, but that wouldn't be good business.
Here's to the new official U.S. PlayStation magazine!

About a month ago, I discovered a horrifying statistic that stated that about twenty percent of “U.S.” Americans can’t find the United States on a world map. I started thinking about why they can’t locate the U.S., and then it hit me like a rock to the face, they don’t have maps. To keep this country the great country it is, we need to get a map to every American. If we don’t try to fight this problem from the source, America may become one of the least intelligent countries in the world. That is why I wish that all Americans had maps.
We must build up a grand future for our children, but we cannot do so, unless if our citizens can locate the U.S. on a world map. I personally believe that this should be a world-wide effort to help out our fellow Americans, and by association, the whole world. We must unite our country, and our world, so that this doesn’t happen to any more countries, and so that we can combat this in the U.S. Countries, like, such as, the Iraq and South Africa, could also help out us with this, and possibly send us maps of their own countries, so we can know how to locate them on a map. Hopefully, our citizens will be able to locate the Iraq and everywhere, like, such as, in a years’ time.
Getting a map to every citizen shouldn’t be hard, and the cost wouldn’t matter, because this is about the future of our country. We could send these maps through the mail or anything, like, such as. We’d be sending off millions of these maps every single day, so the shipping wouldn’t cost much, because they would be bulk mail. These would help out with our education, so we can help out countries like the Iraq and the England. With your help, we can fulfill my wish of getting a map to every American.

About 8,000 for They Might Be Final, Here Comes The Fantasy!, about 1,000 for .hack//TOMORROW, and about 1,000 for the Monster Rancher on DVD Petition video!!!!!
I need to do my homework, so I can't upload an image of it...
I actually think I uploaded an image of it earlier, but I don't remember...
Thursday, September 20, 2007
It looks like it could be pretty fun.
I have never seen anything like it!
Well, without further ado, here's the official trailer:

It was a $1200 Phillips Blu-ray player and eight Blu-ray movies...
I'm not too happy about not winning it.
At least my PS3 is a Blu-ray player...
Sunday, September 2, 2007
It is currently sitting at 1,016, and it has been favorited 11 times!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
That is more than one for every 100 views!!!!!!
They Might Be Final, Here Comes The Fantasy! (higher res) has nearly 7,000 views and it only has eight favorites!!!!! But, Monster Rancher on DVD petition has nearly 900 views with nine favorites, so it's about the same, but I didn't really edit any video...
And, it has almost 300 views on MetaCafe currently, so let's just hope that it keeps getting more and more views!
Sunday, August 19, 2007
The feature is this thing called a custom player. It allows you to share your favorited videos and/or the videos you've posted.
I'll just post it up here so the reader can enjoy it!!!
There are a lot of different colors and styles, but they basically all look the same...
Saturday, August 11, 2007
Well, it took me three weeks, but I finally got a really good laptop for the money.
And now, I'm going to be working on my AMVs, this blog, and a lot of other things that I can basically do only on a computer.
I was using my PS3 and PSP to go online, but there's a lot that I can't do with those...
Well, I'm going to try to be online a lot more often now, and do more than just doing random, worthless tasks...
Well, I'm also going to trade on Forex with monopoly money a lot more, so I can actually get a decent amount of money earned each week/day, so it'll be worth it when I am trading actual cash.
I'm going to try to update my blog at least once a week now, because I am actually getting a lot of people visiting my blog.
Well, talk to you all later!

What was it?
I found that:
1. Beautiful Katamari is still on for the PlayStation 3 (according to them) and
2. The Xbox 360 version will be released five months before the PS3 and Wii versions.
They have the Xbox 360 version listed as being released in October, while the PS3 and Wii versions being released in March.
What does this mean?
Well, if the reports of the Xbox 360 version of Beautiful Katamari being favored would be very accurate, but the reports of the PS3 version being canned in order to put the efforts towards the Wii version would be false, unless the Wii version was set to be released a long time after the 360 and PS3 versions (which would show that Bandai Namco didn't start developing it until a ways after the Wii launched, i.e. they jumped on the Wii bandwagon).
I'm just hoping that the PS3 version is still on, even if it means that we'll have to wait until the spring. I'll have more than enough PS3 games to play during that time: flOw, the next thatgamecompany game, Lair, MotorStorm, Resistance, Warhawk, Home (I know it's not a game...), Assassin's Creed, Haze, Oblivion, and a bunch more games that come out on PSN or that just spring up out of nowhere.
Friday, July 6, 2007
Well, to get to the point, Live Earth is about global warming, and here we are, a couple days before Live Earth, with very, very high temperatures. This thing is going to be thrown all across the media, which is good, and a lot more people are going to be aware of ways to combat global warming.
This should help out everyone's knowledge of global warming (even though it helps increase it for a small amount of time), and I'm probably going to be watching a bunch of it also!
Sunday, July 1, 2007
Well, here it is:
(dot) .hack//TOMORROW from Amish Gramish and Vimeo.
Thursday, June 21, 2007
I am going to go on vacation starting Saturday, so I won't be on for a while.
I have to thank all of you who have signed the Monster Rancher on DVD petition, and I will start working on it a lot more soon!
See you all later!
Sunday, June 10, 2007
This is where I just post random crap about things.
This time, I would (again) like to thank all of the foreign visitors I have gotten so far.
The foreign countries include, in alphabetical order:
Portugal (Hellz Yeah!)
Trinidad and Tobago
Ukraine (Vanya Khoreschenko)
and, last, but not least, United Kingdom
That's right, TWENTY SEVEN COUNTRIES!!!!!!!
Thanks to all of these foreign visitors, who mainly clicked on the "random blog" link up above, and those ten or so people who googled something to get to this!!!!
.hack//TOMORROW has almost 400 views on YouTube, and They Might Be Final, Here Comes The Fantasy! has almost 10,000 aggregate views on YouTube, MetaCafe, and Veoh! (5,600 with the higher res, and 1,800 with the lower res, both on YouTube)!!!!!!
I also want to remind you all to sign the Monster Rancher Petition, which now has thirty signatures!!!!
Okay, now onto more random crap:
I'm going to be heading over to "Boys' State" in Morris, MN at about 8:00 A.M., and it's now 2:45 A.M. here in Barnesville, so I don't think I'm going to get very much sleep.
It's basically where students from each state get together, meet up in their state of residence, and form a fake government. It's sponsored by the American Legion, so if I have fun, I'll have to thank them a lot for letting me go to this!
My dad and I also got some cats a couple weeks/about a month ago, so they are getting bigger and bigger, and fluffier and fluffier.
You all know what happened to my dog, and if not, just read either "Good Night And Good Luck" or the other one about Bode.
Saturday, June 9, 2007
It's from Vanya Khoreschenko , and he said:
Don't forget Ukraine; among other things, home of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.
Oh, and home of Chernobyl, too.
This was yesterday at June 9, 2007 11:12 A.M.
And it looks like I may take a look at S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, because it looks great (and the reviews have been great too!).
Almost half of my visits are now from foreign countries! (Many I haven't heard of before!)
Thanks everyone, and please visit again!
Monday, June 4, 2007
The Folklore/Folks Soul/Monster Kingdom demo is FREAKING SWEET!
The Mainichi Issho game(?) is awesome!
Go! Puzzle is really good and addictive.
Everybody's Golf 5 would be fun if I knew how to play it.
And XI is really, really confusing.
Right now I'm downloading a bunch of videos off the UK PlayStation Store.
And there's a huge sale in the Japanese store, so if you are in Japan, BUY NOW!!!!
If you have a PlayStation Network account, you can add me. My name is Amish_Gramish.

This is where I just post random crap about things.
This time, I would like to thank all of the foreign visitors I have gotten so far.
The foreign countries include:
and, last, but not least, Saudi Arabia
Thanks to all of these foreign visitors, who mainly clicked on the "random blog" link up above, and those three or four people who googled something to get to this!!!!
I also have almost 200 views on .hack//TOMORROW on YouTube, and They Might Be Final, Here Comes The Fantasy! has almost 7,000 aggregate views on YouTube (5,100 with the higher res, and 1,600 with the lower res)!!!!!!
I also want to remind you all to sign the Monster Rancher Petition!!!!

Friday, April 27th, Day 5:
I slept and, before that, I skipped half of school to get a physical.
I also started to memorize hiragana, and I am actually getting pretty good at reading Japanese now, but I don't really know what's being said...
Saturday, April 28th, Day 6:
I slept, read, cleaned, and worked.
I was getting pretty bored, because I was tired of reading, and I had slept so much, I wasn't tired enough to even take a nap before eleven...
The post-prom started at 12:30, but I'm just going to talk about it now.
It was pretty fun, but I couldn't play any video games *tear*.
I won a new camera! It's a lot better than my old crappy one!
I memorized some more hiragana, and I was able to write "Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto," but I didn't put the katakina, or whatever that one is, for Roboto, because I'll get to that later.
Sunday, April 29th, Day 7:
This was the second hardest day, because I had less than 24 hours until I could watch TV again.
I went to sleep at 4:30, and woke up at 11:20, because I had to go to Morris to go eat with my family and visit with my brother, who's in college.
I also learned some more hiragana, and slept.
Well, that's it!
I found out that I didn't need to go on the web, play games, or watch as much TV as I used to, because I can do so much more with my time if I didn't do as much of these.
Is now on four
Every day I wait
Because it's so great
I need to get some cash
So I have a mech to bash
I loved the demo
Something that rhymes with demo
I had a good fight
So I can say good night

.hack//TOMORROW - Funny bloopers R us
It's currently being reviewed by the members of MetaCafe to make sure it isn't offensive, but I think everyone should be able to watch it.
Here's my old video, They Might Be Final, Here Comes The Fantasy!:
They Might Be Final, Here Comes The Fantasy! - Funny bloopers are a click away
Friday, May 4, 2007
It's about when I brought flOw to Anime Detour, but they said it was last week, and it was actually over a month ago...
flOw is a downloadable PS3 game that's available NOW!!!!
(I'm Amish Gramish, if any of you haven't noticed...)
Thursday, May 3, 2007
I haven't done anything with it for a couple weeks now, and it seems I should start again!!!
I'm going to post links on a bunch more Monster Rancher related AMVs and clips, and I might even make a video advertising it!
As always, the link for the petition is here: Monster Rancher on DVD Petition.
For all of you who don't know what the petition is about, it is for bringing Monster Rancher on DVD in the United States and Canada, because all we have is the first 9 and first 12 episodes on DVD, and it's very hard to find them, even on eBay, and the first season was released on VHS, but it's probably even harder to find those.
Okay, I'll get back to my story:
Tuesday, April 24th, 2007, day 2:
I started reading more of Ledges and I hung out with friends for almost the whole day (not counting school) and went trash picking!!! (It was trash pickin' week, the week that's after Spring Clean-up Week)
I got a bunch of stuff, including a chair that can easily be fixed, a desk (which my dad ended running over with a vehicle of some sort, and a bunch of really freaking old books.
Wednesday, April 25th, 2007, day 3:
I slept until Youth Group, which starts at seven, and we played some weird Frisbee(r)/football game until 8:20. Then Berg, Im, and I all went to Dairy Queen and ate some ice cream! (Strawberry Waffle Bowl for me!)
All I did that night was just read some magazines and more of Ledges.
But I did realize something that day: I realized that I rely way, way too much on TV, the radio, video games, and my computer. I could do a lot more things (involving learning Japanese, which I haven't done anything with since Sunday) if I didn't watch as much TV, play as many games, etc.
I knew this even more so, because I read 100 pages of Ledges in the past three days, which it took me one month to read the first 100!
Thursday, April 26th, 2007, day 4:
I went home, slept, ate, cleaned, and read the last 70 pages of Ledges and some articles in some magazines.
Yeah, that's all that happened on Thursday.
I should (hopefully) have more info up tomorrow!
Wednesday, May 2, 2007
I'm in their blog about Folding@home, which is talking about the team's score.
Amish is kicking everyone's ass in finding the cure for cancer, Cloud668 trails behind with a measly 3407, and Jenova is pathetically in third place even though he has a PS3 SITTING AT HIS DESK.I like that first line!
I have only 30 Work Units completed with the thatgamecompany team, but I have 46 total work units!!!!
Folding@home is on the PS3 (which is what I run it on) and the PC.
It was developed by Stanford University, which is where all the protein folding information is sent.
Remember to Fold@home!
Monday, April 30, 2007
Well, I'm going to post what my experiences were last week:
Monday, April 23rd, 2007.
It was the hardest day for me, because I wasn't used to having a TV/computer/radio to turn on and go watch TV/surf the web/listen to with me whenever I had periods of time that lasted more than a day that I didn't go on the, well, you get the idea.
Okay, I didn't do much, I just read, ate, and slept.
And I went to the bathroom.
Well, that's day one for ya!
Catch you tomorrow!
I can't wait for this to happen, because he is one of the biggest arse faces in the entire gaming industry!!!!
He once stated that video games can't be art.
I guess he never played anything by Team Ico, such as Ico (which is where they got their name) or Shadow of the Collossus.
I just can't wait for June!!!!
Sunday, April 22, 2007
The anime is .hack//SIGN, which I used five different episodes of, and the song is "El Manana" by Gorillaz. Manana means tomorrow, so that's where I got the name from.
My AMV is about friends and the love of Subaru and Tsukasa.
It's a lot better than my other AMV, but it is off by a couple frames, but it's kind of hard to tell, unless if you are focusing on it.
Sunday, April 15, 2007
They Might Be Final, Here Comes The Fantasy! - Amazing videos are here
MetaCafe and Veoh have a lot better resolution than YouTube, which is why I am partly annoyed by YouTube.
Well, my video has an average of about 2.8 on these sites, and I didn't think it would be that highly rated... Well, when I fine tune it,it apparently will get an even higher score!?!?!?!?
But that'll be within the next year or two.
And the best thing about MetaCafe is if any video that the poster made gets over 20,000 views, the people who made the videos get PAID!!!!
A lot of money has already been shelled out, and there's a lot more where that came from!
Please sign the petition to get Monster Rancher on DVD in the U.S. and Canada.
Friday, April 13, 2007
But what they could do with these games is sell people songs (that may or may not be played only on that game, i.e. also put on the console for unlimited playback) and let them use these songs during the levels. One element that would probably make this a little popular or more popular is if the gamers were allowed to use certain songs at certain points, or even certain portions of songs at certain points in the game.
Something like this can be done for a lot of different games.
This would be replacing the soundtrack, if it even had any.
It costed about $250K to have a full song in a game back in 2005, which is why most games either feature songs that are re-made by another company or the songs are cut in half, but if the songs weren't put in the game, and were made available for download, game developers might be able to let us have full songs (at our dime) without being charged the full 250K. In order to do so, they would probably make a deal with the music companies that would probably have a minimum price paid to the music companies and would have a set amount of royalties per song sold.
The world of downloadable video game console content is going to go through a lot of changes in the next 10-20 years until it finds a stable point, kind of like what just happened with the internet. I.e., it doesn't have many new things that pop up every year.
Well, I think the price of games will drop to $50 by the end of 2008, and the microtransactions will make up more and more of the amount spent on games. I also think the price of microtransactions will drop, i.e. SingStar, Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Dance Dance Revolution, and all other song games that will (probably) have songs for download will see the prices drop to about $1 to $1.50 each. They currently cost a little more than $2 on Guitar Hero 2 for the Xbox 360.
And for those who say that portable consoles (the PSP and DS) will rule the industry by 2010, just shut your faces up!
The home consoles will always be in control, because most people who play games on home consoles don't buy handhelds (and that won't change much, either). And also, the game software for home consoles will always be larger than portables. The games/360 ratio is over 5 per 360 right now, and neither the PSP or DS has more than 4 games per console. (The PSP and DS were released before the 360 came out).
Wednesday, April 11, 2007
I don't even know why anyone would subscribe when I only have one (true) video.
Well, I just have to say thanks to everyone who has watched my video and who will watch my video and who has and will subscribe to me on YouTube!
Tuesday, April 10, 2007
I won't be able to work on it this weekend, unless if I move the (very) large computer to another house.
So, I might have a couple days to work on it this weeks (three to four hours each day) and I might get more days of work on it next week, so it will probably be a couple weeks until I have completed it.
Monday, April 9, 2007
I have 1 minute 4 seconds of my AMV completed so far, and there's only 3 minutes left!!!
I have spent about 3 1/2 hours working on it, and it looks like it will be about 12-15 hours of work left!!!
Good times, or not...
(the 3 1/2 hours doesn't include the 8 hours spent finding programs to convert and edit the files)
Friday, April 6, 2007
I spent about eight hours working on ripping DVDs onto my computer and converting them to a file that my trial version of Sony Vegas (I'm too poor for $90...) can use.
I finally found one, but each episode takes up almost 6 GB of space.
Well, I have about 30 seconds of the 4 minute AMV done, and I will (hopefully) get it done this weekend!
Wednesday, March 21, 2007
I was watching some of the Winter Olympics with my dad, and they were talking about the drunk, Bode Miller.
Dad turns to me and says "Is Bode a good name for a dog?"
When I get home from school, I find that after years and years of begging Dad to get a dog, he finally did.
"1/4 Blue Healer, 1/2 Border Colley, 1/4 Australian Shepherd, all equals up to ugly."
He was a cute dog, back then, but he just didn't seem to get some things.
He even made his own word, that shall be known forever as gnowr. (ny ow ruh)
During the summer, we took him out to Barnesville, so he could run around in the McGraff, or whatever it's called, Park.
Bode was known to be a gay dog, because he really, really liked to lick guys.
He stopped saying gnowr at about the same time he would stop wining whenever there was no one around and/or when it was dark.
Bode used to bite at people without doing any real damage, nibbling, to say, which is why Tyler gave him the nickname "Nibbles."
Tyler and I also really liked how soft his ears were.
In the last few months, he became more and more violent, going from just jumping up and catching birds in mid-air to killing squirrels.
The final straw was when he killed the calf.
Over $2,000, a lot of stress, and some joy.
Dad basically killed Bode because, like in Of Mice And Men, Bode would have just, be it accident or not, started killing more and more creatures.
In the end, Bode was what I've been waiting for for years, a dog.
Bode was here for one year, fourteen days, and a couple hours.
There were a lot of good times with Bode, there were a lot of bad times with Bode, overall, there is only one thing I can say:
Good bye Nibbles.
Thursday, March 1, 2007
His name was Bode (bow-dee).
When we first got him, he was a little slow, but we thought it would just go away.
He ended up being very, very stupid.
He wasn't the dumbest dog around, but he was still very, very stupid.
He started chewing up shoes, gloves, and a lot more things.
One day, Bode jumped over the border that kept him from wrecking the house.
He was beaten for what he did to the house.
To this day, he was afraid to go past the imaginary line that the border was located.
Bode would do very stupid things, such as bite the tires of the four-wheeler and get his face run over.
He would also drag garbage from the ditches and fields to our yard.
He would chase people, vehicles, and even farm equipment.
He started chasing birds, catching them in mid-air, and eating them.
He would chase away the only descendant of our favorite cat, Garfield, who has been missing for the past couple weeks.
Last week he killed and ate a squirrel.
So far, Bode had costed over $1,500 over the span of a little more than one year.
I'll just say flat out that I didn't like Bode.
Either this morning or last night, a baby calf was born.
It had managed to cross the fence somehow, and was killed and partially eaten by Bode.
The thing I had been bugging my dad about him doing for months finally happened.
Bode is now lying down somewhere with a lead bullet in the back of his head, waiting for the coyotes to come for his body.
Wednesday, February 28, 2007
That means over 3,000 minutes, over 50 hours, and over 180,000 seconds that people viewed it!
That's a lot more than the five hours I spent making it!!!!
Sunday, February 25, 2007
I talked with him about the war in Iraq and about the future of the U.S.
And he met Im and talked with him about Indonesia.
I hope school is canceled tomorrow, because that would make this weekend even better!
I mean, first being in the flOw for the PS3 credits, and then meeting Al Franken, and then having over 600 views, 1 comment, a 5 star rating, and 1 favorite on my music video of Final Fantasy XIII to the tune of Ana Ng by They Might Be Giants:
"They Might Be Final, Here Comes The Fantasy!"
Saturday, February 24, 2007
I am in the credits for the game flOw for the PlayStation 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!
flOw is a truly amazing game, and all those crappy industry reviews of flOw, which gave flOw 7.5/10 average, but the user reviews give flOw an average of 9.8/10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
flOw is a must have for the PlayStation 3, and the response in the past two days of it's release is astounding.
It went from being a game that almost no one knew about, to the most popular PS3 game in just TWO DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, how did I get in the credits?
I was just a regular poster on thatgamecompany's website.
Anyways, I give flOw a big, 10/10!!!!!!!!!
