Out of the Blue

The Westminster Kennel Club dog show kicks off this evening. I mentioned several years ago this is something MrsBlue and I enjoyed watching, though I have to admit we don't actually catch to much of the broadcast any more, as it is just mind-bogglingly similar every year, with the same announcers saying the same things year after year, which combines with how the appearance of the dogs never changes to create this creepy feeling you've watched the exact same show before (though if you've seen Best in Show, this eventually inspires a lot of laughter). Anyway, watching or not, we will be rooting as hard as we can for the Airedale Terrier, in Honor of Hudson the wonder dog. Not that it will help: Airedales have won best in show at Westminster four times, but the last time was when FDR was president, and World War I was still "The Great War" because we had not yet had a World War II.

Best in Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Commando Rush.
Stories: To win at Westminster, dogs campaign like presidential candidates.
Adventurers re-enact Shackleton's Antarctic voyage.
Science: Window-washing Winbot. Thanks HARDOCP.
Media: ‘SNL’ mocks Super Bowl blackout.
Fix Your Own Digital Camera.
Two leopards encounter a mirror. Thanks brother19.

Finally started playing Saints Row 3 on Friday.


Man, were they dumb with the plot here. I understand they made the decision they did "because they wanted you to really hate The Syndicate," but this is Saints Row. No one really hates anything or feels stakes in anything, and nothing will change that. We want to steal cars, customize them to look dumb, then take a fat naked avatar out shooting guys in the face from that car. We don't need motivation beyond putting a red triangle above a guy for us to want to kill it.
