  • Thanksgiving Gaming

    This is a great year for Thanksgiving Gaming, one of the fullest I can recall in a long time. This week as I have been squeezing game time I have had to choose between several great games; Dragon Age, Assassin’s Creed 2, and Modern Warfare 2. It could have been worse I could have bought […]

  • Musing about computer upgrades.

    I was sitting around the other day thinking about upgrading to windows 7.  At home I have two computers I use daily, both have XP on them and my gaming machine also has Vista (via dual boot), all of them 32 bit versions.  If I take the plunge to Win7 I want to […]

  • Sunday Drive

    I took a quick inventory of my entertainment activities in the last month and was a actually a bit surprised at what I have done. First, I played a month of retail Champions Online, I had fun but as I neared level 30 the game started to feel a bit stale. The worst part is […]

  • Letter to my blog

    Dear blog, With all my heart I want to apologize for neglecting you for the last several weeks. It’s not you, it’s me. Things have changed blog and I have been, umm, busy. No, there is not another blog. Please don’t cry.

Work starts on Sept. 1, which only gives me a few days to actually try and enjoy some “time off” before I jump […]

  • Yo Joe?

    I did see GI Joe, and I enjoyed it. Yes there was some bad CG. Yes the plot had insane holes. Yes there was several times where things simply did not make any sense. So how could I, particularly after complaining so much about Transformers 2, enjoy GI Joe?

  • Second Skin

    I starting watching the documentary “second skin”, and about 20 minutes in I started making comments to my screen. After a bit I decided that instead of watching the whole thing and then writing something up I would just write things down as I watch.   These comments are pretty much unedited and written […]
