Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.

A trash bin of memories
December 16, 2007

Next to sandbox design and quasi-futuristic body armor, Cineractives are some of the hottest buttons in gaming. Resident Evil 4 supposedly introduced them, God of War supposedly refined them, and they are, supposedly, pushing games to new peaks on the evolutionary scale. If nothing else, cineractives certainly are a welcome relief from the high-school prose posing as proverbs of endless insight (Metal Gear maybe?). I hate to imagine what our beloved hobby would have become had cineractives not appeared in... 1983.

That's right Leon. You may have brought cineractives to the masses, but the honor of originality goes to, this guy-

The Movie Line
December 15, 2007

Newest additions to the collection:
Death Trance
Live Free or Die Hard

I am debating whether or not to purchase Sicko. I saw it in theaters, loved it, and entertained thoughts of moving to France as a result. Call me unpatriotic, but I bet you don't have a body full of deteriorating cartilage. Anyway, Sicko is not my first, or even hundredth choice for repeat viewings. The only reason I have for a purchase is to get other people to see the film.

(Untitled Post)
December 04, 2007

Wayne_Steed just posted a great video from the Protomen. I enjoyed it, but then I made the mistake of watching other Protomen videos, only to realize that they wear, *gasp* motorcycle helmets.

Now, I have nothing against motorcycle helmets in particular, and in fact, find them useful in a variety of situations - running into walls, beating people senseless, or maybe even riding a bike. What shocks me is that another musician would have the gall to challenge the king of all helmeted musical warriors.

I give you Bob Log III.

Too good to play this game
December 02, 2007

Linking reviews on the blog started out as a unique way to garner more attention, then somewhere along the line, things got blown out of proportion. Now, anyone capable of hammering three letters into a word processor is out here, screaming, "Look at me! Momma tells me I'm special, so read my review!"

I don't play that game. I'm happy with my 22nd place in the reviewing ranks. Sure, I wouldn't mind being up top, but I took that place fair and square. That means no cheap hype or tricky linking. If you want to see my reviews, you have to look for them. I guess that makes me obscure, hence, cooler than you.


Guess I'll play something else
November 27, 2007

I was looking for a new MMO to play and came across Cabal Online. I haven't read any reviews, but the game looks like it could be good. Lo and behold, I come across this warning.

"Please note: This game and these downloads are provided for EUROPEAN players ONLY. The game will not work if you attempt to play outside of Europe."

Maybe I'll try Space Cowboy.

That might have worked if the Download section would actually give me way to download the game. Next up, Last Chaos. I just hope my PC can handle it. Yes, my PC is that crappy.

Opening for music writers
November 26, 2007

I saw this post on Craigslist and thought someone here might be interested. is looking for indie-music writers. It's a paid position and the site looks new, so it might be a good chance to get in on the ground floor somewhere.


Black Friday was a breeze
November 24, 2007

My first Black Friday purchase ever, and I didn't even have to leave the house. It's a Panasonic TH42PX75 42" Plasma. There may be better out there, but at $400 off, it might as well be the holy grail in my eyes.

I can finally get rid of this crappy 20" mono TV that makes a constant, high-pitched whine, or at least until you hit it. I will be able to play Forza 2 and see the names of the parts, or play Gears of War online and see my opponents before we are face to face.

Just look at those kids. They sure love that TV.
