Out of the Blue

So today is the so-called Cyber Monday, a celebration of online consumerism where deals should abound, which apparently works, as I've seen it estimated that well over 100 million Americans plan on doing some online shopping today. Today is also unofficially Hug A Gamer Day, so you should attempt to cash in on that as best you can. The occasion is inspired by the anniversary of the launch of the arcade version of Pong in 1972.

R.I.P.: Leslie Nielsen Dead At 84.

Rest in peace Leslie Nielsen; thanks for the many laughs that resulted in many pairs of pissed-in pants. Spot_right

I can't focus, will be caffeine free a week tomorrow, would like to say something funny & or intelligent but I'm not capable. I will divulge this whole giving up coffee is taking it's toll, very surprised by the spin this has put my head in but I will win, two weeks & I sould be clear.
As a side the weather here has been one of the driest Springs in a long time, sould be a hot summer ahead.


I've never cared for coffee, which I guess is good, as I've been told I need to eliminate as much as I possibly can, by a doctor. This includes coffee, pop, chocolate, etc. You'd be surprised what it's in, including some drink mixes you add to water, and even some multivitimins (hint: if it says "energy", beware). I sometimes cheat and have a pop once or twice a month, but that's about it. I spoiled myself with a couple of brownies the other night and lived...

I was hoping George would admit he screwed up the prequel and let Kershner do it properly. Well, this is a kick in the balls.

Fuck him. Peter Jackson is my George Lucas now.

I consider Empire Strikes Back the best of the Star Wars films; probably one the best sci-fi films made. Not surprisingly it had the least input from Lucas. As far as I'm concerned Kershner contributed greatly to the Star Wars ethos and cannon, and I am grateful to him for that! R.I.P. Mr. Kershner. Salute

George is too full of himself. When you're young, you have drive and you take risks. When you're older and have huge piles of money to wipe your ass, that all goes away.

I'll all but decided, with his frequent tweaks and reissues of the classic trilogy, that it was just being at the right place and the right time for him. Everything he touches these days is shit.

Fuck him. Peter Jackson is my George Lucas now.

Some might recognize the 2009 'blaster' to be one of the completely bad assed alien weapons known as AMR-B21 from the fantastic movie District 9. It's the one that shoots lightning and insta-gibs anyone it touches. To cool! Though personally my favorite is the one that throws people around and blasts holes in everything.

Best Package Shipping Company.

They had to contact a specialty company to build the device? And it was hard to get the power for it? Really?

All of that could be done with dozens of cell phones, the programming is quite easy. And with the screen and phone part always off, you can easily get the battery to last a long ass time. My phone last 2 days without charging and it is always connected for push-email and has the accelerometer and compass shit in it to do all that...

Thought it was classy that the family asked, instead of flowers, to send the money to the charity of your choice.
