Hexic HD

Just thought I would throw out that Hexic HD is the bomb. I spent a good chunk of time playing it last night on my 360.

Lessons Learned on Vacation

Last night I got back from the family vacation to Disneyland and I learned a few valuable lessons while we were gone:

  • Don’t speed in Texas
  • Yahoo Maps stink and their driving directions are horrible. Opt for a Road Atlas instead
  • Don’t buy Road Maps at gas stations, they are like $7 and you can get them free at the visitor center of each state
  • I am far too old to ride rides that spin in circles
  • Fort Stockton, TX is still one of my least favorite places ever
  • Driving 20 or so hours with a 2 yr old is not the wisest thing to do

Spurs vs Mavs - Game 1

Game 1 of the 2nd round of the playoffs have just started and the Spurs are playing very well coming off the incredibly short turnaround from Game 6 of the Kings series. Spurs are up 7 to 4 right now.


I will admit that I am a bit biased being a huge Spurs fan, but I just saw a blip on TV that suggested that Steve Nash was going to be named MVP for the 2nd straight year. I personally think Nash is a great player, but I don’t think he deserves the MVP this year. Last year they steamrolled a lot of teams and without Amare they have done well, but they nearly didn’t make it out of the 1st round against the Lakers. I have to say that Tony Parker should definitely be considered for the MVP.

Original Star Wars Trilogy coming to DVD

I consider myself a Star Wars loyalist, but I really wasn’t bothered by the initial release of the Trilogy on DVD with the expanded editions etc. For those of you that were you are going to be able to own the original theatrical versions as well as the re-mastered versions. I may have to pick this up just to have it.

2007 Models and Concepts

I was recently browsing around Automobile Magazine’s website and I cam across some of these sweet rides:

Pyramind in Bosnia?

I know it sounds odd, but scientists have unearthed a step pyramid in Bosnia. This pyramid was long thought to be a hill, but its perfect 45 degree sides and flat top made some people wonder. This pyramid stands approximately 722 feet high which makes it a third taller than Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza.

Amazing stuff.

What time is it?

So I was talking to my buddy up at Penn State today and he was describing the following conversation he had with a classmate this morning. Here it is in all it’s glory:

Austin: Dude, look at my new watch
Josh: yeah, it's a watch
Austin: Know how much it cost?
Austin: Huh?
Austin: Huh?
Austin: Do ya?
Austin: Do ya?
Josh: No, Austin, I don't know how much it cost
Austin: $1200
Austin: It doesn't have any numbers on it so I don't ever know what time it is
Austin: and I can't tell time
Austin: so I have to learn

As you can probably guess, my buddy is named Josh and his dull counterpart is Austin. I was left pretty speechless. This Austin character is apparently one bright cookie.

Un-pimp your Ride

Those new VW commercials about un-pimping cars are probably my favorite commercials of the last 5 years. I am posting them here so I can watch them over and over again.

Others coming soon.
