World of Addiction 
Saturday, April 22, 2006, 11:41 AM - General
What is it with RTS games that make them so addictive?

For instance, take my addiction to Total Annihilation (and its "parents" Warcraft and Command & Conquer) and Warfare Incorporated. I can literally spend whole hours just playing a single skirmish map without being aware of life going on around me!

Whether its the simple point-n-click interface, or the hilarious destruction, the games just keep me hooked even through the wait periods of building units and weapons.

It's probably a good thing that I haven't gotten around to playing World of Warcraft, considering its addictive issues.

Free magazines for only $200+

Who knew that a simple "hack" would become very popular?

Digital magazines for the PSP allow PSP users to read content on the go in an easy to use format, instead of carrying around bulky tree-killing formats.

But then, paper doesn't run out of power. ;)

Now, if only it could auto-sync with my Palm T|X.

One, if not the, funniest shows in recent TV seasons appears to be permentaly cancelled. All because it was too funny for the average American TV viewer.

It has/had a great cast, great writing, and very funny plots. Which are no-nos for American TV comedies!

Rest in peace, Bluth family.

At least we still have My Name is Earl and The Office.

Movie Review: Evil Dead 2 
Tuesday, April 4, 2006, 08:16 PM - Review
Yes, it's an old movie, but I wanted to see what all the hype was about.

I'm surprised I didn't fall asleep ... just kidding ;)

Evil Dead 2 is a decent B-movie. As usual Bruce Campbell is worth watching, though all the other actors (I think there were other actors) were easily forgetable. The special effects were definately b-movie budget effects, and the script ... well, let's just say I think they improvised quite a lot.

Overall: 4 of 5

Movie Review: V for Vendetta 
Saturday, March 25, 2006, 05:02 PM - Review
WOW!!! V for Vendetta is a powerfull film. The acting is a bit lame, the dialogue sometimes over the head, and very political, but the story, music and action sequences are well done. The climax scene really hits you.

4 out of 5!
