Nice - it is pretty cool what you can get on a budget now....

Well, yes, except that:

It's iPod-"ready", Bluetooth-"ready", HDRadio-"ready" - meaning I have to purchase three separate components in order to get the functionality that I ultimately want out of it... and that's an extra $450 or so total!!! Heh.

Well, at least I can play MP3s off a CD or USB stick...

Saw a ton of Rock Band bundles at lunch

I hear the PS2 version's coming out some time next month. I would love to get my hands on 'em, though I am finding the drumset is a bit finicky... maybe it's just that the store demo's been beaten on so many times...

Then again, I've got a new stereo to pop into the dash of my car tonight:

I have a vid here for everyone, if you haven't seen it: Tesla Mario!

I'm thinking they should produce a 7.1 DTS emulating sound setup for an extremely large living room...

Whoa, it's Ron Jeremy!

Well, I found a Turkish oddball movie that includes the characters of (I guess?) Spiderman and Captain America, plus some wrestler by the name of "Santo".

EDIT: Is it just me, or is it taking an insanely long time to get to/reload the Bluesnews site? Even going directly to the IP it seems to take AGES to load, if it does at all, at times.... Methinks this is somehow related to UGO.

News Comments > Ghostbusters Game Plans
18. Re: Hoping Nov 14, 2007, 23:25 Dan =0)
 
I do remember the atrocity that was the cartoon with the ape, that had fuck-all to do with Ghostbusters but somehow carried the same name.

Actually, that cartoon with the ape was based off a live-action series from the 1970s, whereas the "Ghostbusters" that we all know and love was based on the movie that started off in 1984... *shrug* I have to admit, however, that I liked both cartoon series, at least initially, for different reasons, though the Filmation Ghostbusters wore out its welcome a lot sooner with too much silliness.

Now, if someone would make a parody vid of that Filmation "masterpiece" to a disco-fied girly rock tune much like what was done with He-Man (see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fy6faAgrLg4 ), then I'll be all set.

All that being said, this project sounds promising, and I hope it does well.

All this talk about Portal, TF2 and how fun those are... I -really- would like to play them.

Blah.

Edit: Yes, my PC is still a doorstop. I've been occupying my time with things other than PC gaming, heathen that I am.

I'm dyin to get that one...

I would, but as I only have a PS2 (and not an XBox360 or PS3), there's little point. Besides, I'd rather get myself a full electronic drumkit... much more versatile.

Well, the only thing after that that's stopping me is a lack of space.

Oh, and neither of my roommates would have any of it, I think. *shrug* Ah well.

8. Rock Band Nov 3, 2007, 21:02 Dan =0)
 
I checked out Rock Band (drums) at my local Best Buy... it was actually a lot of fun, but I'd still prefer playing the real drums. Synth kit preferably (so I can wear headphones and not wake up the neighbors).

Nah... I've been driving the Elantra around, getting used to a manual transmission. It's actually a lot of fun, and pretty easy to get up to speed (no pun intended) on driving smoothly once you get going.

Enahs, you can find me in live chat in case you're still around - nin or anyone else, feel free too.

<mental image of Dan getting behind hell of new car and saying "We're on a mission from God!">

Brain fart? (I'm guessing you meant "wheel".)

Just need the sunglasses, quarter tank of gas, cop shocks, cop engine, cop wheels, and a broken cigarette lighter; then I'm good to go.

EDIT: As hokey as it sounds, actually, I'm putting together a CD for my new(er) car. I'll send $5 to the person who, within the next hour, gives me the name of the first song I plan on playing as I drive it off the lot...

EDIT2: fixed a couple errors in previous edit. Oh yes, and Venetian Snares (drum & bass guy from Winnipeg with lots of orchestral stuff) is great... I especially like the track "Hajnal" from the album "Rossz Csillag Alatt Született."

EDIT3 and 4..... blah.

heh, just got home from getting my moto from a friends house (in the back of a pickup).

Needs new news coils and wires, doesn't fire hot enough to burn the gas.

Nice.

I just bought this vehicle as a replacement for my three-week-dead Camry:

http://tinyurl.com/2pugz6
(Autotrader.com website)

Low mileage, no problems in CarFax and according to a trusted mechanic, drives nicely, and it'll hopefully get me around for at least a few years while giving me the option of hauling stuff if need be. Just need to get used to a manual transmission again...

Not exactly my first choice of body style or color, but I think I could do far worse with respect to that.

Gonna finalize everything and pick up the car on Monday...

Dan =0)

EDIT: PS Had a gig Friday night... we set up our stuff at midnight, but most of the crowd left. Still, we got paid (a rarity, considering the last three gigs were pretty much nil in the $ dept.) and I had the most fun at this gig, though it was abbreviated.

17. Re: Quick car question Oct 2, 2007, 23:02 Dan =0)
 
It really comes down to finding a car with the features you want in the prince range you can afford, and then make sure to check everything out good.

The whole concept of swearing by a car or brand does not apply to a used car like this. The quality of the car now depends more on who had it before you and how they drove it and took care of it then on who made it. It is not like a certified used car were it is 2 or less years old.

Get the CarFax report, and get it checked out and test drive it really well.

Well, I ran the VINs of the Taurus and this Camry that I'm also looking at.

Turns out the Taurus has been in an accident (left center pillar damaged) and the Camry's been repossessed.

Whee.

10. Quick car question Oct 2, 2007, 16:47 Dan =0)
 
So, I found this, and pretty well have my heart set on it (after I will test drive it):

(Cars.com - Ford Taurus '99 SE Wagon - 86K mi, FWD, ~$3500)

http://tinyurl.com/2t7dug

Looks great on the exterior and interior, hoping the parts under the hood look and run as well as the dealer claims (which is why I will test drive and take to a trusted mechanic, of course)!

Any insight? I've heard from the few Ford Taurus owners I know that they seem to be relatively reliable. Just wondering if anyone here's had experience with 'em.

What I'm looking for: Something around $3000 (which I know isn't that much for any terribly decent car here); automatic transmission; station wagon form factor, or at least something a bit larger than a sedan that can carry my music equipment and leave the front passenger seat open for an extra person; something 60-100K miles or so.

That's probably going to limit things a LOT, but so far this seems to be the best thing I've found, on cars.com at least. Most family, some friends and a few coworkers I know are quite gung-ho about Toyotas and Hondas. I can vouch for my old Camry's longevity ('94 with 222,350 miles RIP), but I'm finding it hard to find any Toyota or Honda, used or otherwise, with the specs I'm looking for at that price in my area.

Maybe I should move?

EDIT: Okay, so technically my post contains two questions...

EDIT2: Cleared up some text.

Yeah.. I've been visiting here and there but not posting much nowadays.

Oh yeah, found this vehicle:

http://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/car/436150401.html

A bit on the high mileage, and it's a manual (I've only driven a friend's VW Jetta, which was a manual, once back in 2002)... but it looks nice. And supposedly runs nice.

My computer still hasn't been upgraded/revamped, but I've been looking again at some Core 2 Duo type options I can slowly piece together for ~$350.. nothing astounding, but something that will use my current case and vid card.

EDIT: *Shameless plug* If anyone's in the Boston/metrowest area, the band (Lucretia's Daggers) is playing Oct 5 - Friday - at the Lizard Lounge, and Oct 28 at the Cantab Lounge.... */shameless plug*

Going to Live Chat now...
