Out of the Blue

Today is a special day here in the BlueTower, as MrsBlue and I are celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary. This occasion corresponds pretty closely with this website, which was in a fledgling state around the time we got married, and moved to its own domain 15 years ago this October. This points out how awesome my better half is, as she's been putting up with all of you almost as long as she's been putting up with me.

Anniversary Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez and Acleacius.
Play: Mobil 1 Track Challenge.

Congrats Blue, btw how did that conversation go anyway?

"I need to tell you something about me.."
"What's that?"
"I have roughly a few thousand kids... I run a gaming news website"
"Oh really?"
"Um.. yeah"

I am not a kid!

Same...guess I was when this whole thing started, but not for long.

Thanks Ant.

Congrats to Blue and Mrs.Blue!

If the do make another Terminator movie, and Arnold is the star, hopefully they make him not the Terminator. Perhaps it is in the future when the T1000 series is being developed and it is based off a younger image of the character Arnold plays.

I thought that of all the places out there I'd be free of the incomprehensible ramblings of Michael Pachter on NPR during the morning commute. Lo and behold, during Marketplace morning a segment on Sony and PSN comes up and "analyst" Michael Pachter is given megaphone.

Is no place safe?

Congratulations!!! Here's to 15 more!

Was that Quakenews (when I first started following), or did you have a domain before that? Doomnews?
