On the Street Fighter subject - I listened to an interview with the guy who was in charge of balancing IV, and he said that a big part of the data they worked with had been learned via SF2 tournaments.  He also said that a pretty hefty percentage of people playing will never notice the tweaks - only the super-hardcore folks.

Watched Ghajini, the Indian remake of Memento.  I was ready for it to be over at least 20 minutes before it was.  I think it was the songs that killed me, or maybe it was that half of the movie was an action movie and the other half was a stupid mistaken identity romantic comedy.  (I hate mistaken identity stories, even by the best authors like Shakespeare.)  But still, glad I watched it to see how that translation worked out.

Wow.  WoW.  I can't imagine it either, but if that's fake, it's a pretty freaking professional job of fakery.  Kudos to them.

Didn't play it, but should have.

Score - I love that series.

I've been thinking for a while now that they needed to branch out from just rock with this game - I love rock, but not everyone does (you know, like commies). ;)  This is a pretty silly way to do it, but I bet I'll buy it anyway.  I know I'm buying the Beatles version.

even a collection for the Wii would be great.

Wii, PC, DS... heck, they could put those games out on the freaking iPhone at this point - I bet it's at least as powerful as the PCs we were all using when we played that stuff.  And you know what?  I bet they'd sell a TON.

OK, sorry I dragged us down into the rabbit hole.  I think any of us who have had rabbits have sad bunny dying stories.  If you've got them, you kind of understand, because aside from being really darned cute and makin' babies, kicking buckets seems to be a top activity for rabbits.  Also, it seems like so many of us who've had more than one got them from other people who didn't want them.[/depressing time]

Anywho, that first drawing is actually pretty great, MGF!  The other one's not so high-quality, but it cracks me up, which is good enough for me. :)

Oh, man - that makes me want a DSi.  I <3 Dr. Mario. :)  I also <3 Yoshi Cookie, but only on the SNES for some reason.

Hiking is probably my favorite outdoor hobby, and camping coincides with this one.

Seriously, Jimmy - check out geocaching.  If you already love hiking, it just adds another fun element to your hikes and can help you decide where to go.  (That last one's always the hardest part for me.)  Also, there are a TON of caches in Utah.

Not to slight you man, but I tend to listen more if the ladies think I look better.

I'd be surprised if you said differently. :D

Wow - looks like there's lots more crazy stuff for me to look forward to in the remaining books - thanks, Din!  Ashok Banker is apparently working on writing up the Mahabharata like he did with the Ramayana, so I'll have to keep an eye out for that when it comes out.

Knitting, sewing and other girly/creative things

Oh, my wife would love you.  She also reads, knits, sews (and does other girly/creative things), and loves rabbits.  We had 3, but... the inevitable thing that happens with pets happened to them, one each year for 3 years. :(

If you're interested in knitting sites online, PM me or something - I'll get some links from her to cool stuff and forward them.  If you're looking to sell more stuff, I have one word for you: amigurumi.  Can be very easy to make, and I bet you'd sell a freaking truckload at cons.

Wait, wait.  By frisbee golf do you mean Disc Golf?  As in the sport they play in the PDGA?  I love that shit, man.  I usually play for fun whenever I cross the border to Michigan.  My cousin works at a disc factory.  I wish my forearm throw would be better, though.  I can only sidearm the discs. :(

Yeah, I'm sure that's the same thing I mean.  I just haven't played enough to use the real name. :)  I have a set of basic discs at home, but haven't had a chance to really use them.

Oh - I forgot a hobby before!  Geocaching.  It's awesome.  Buy a GPS unit, or heck, use your phone if it's got GPS, then download coordinates for free from the web, and you're off treasure-hunting.  (http://www.geocaching.com/ is a great site for it.)  The caches you find vary from tiny containers with just enough room for a piece of paper to sign that you were there to big old buckets you can trade trinkets (and sometimes better stuff) in.  And with summer coming, we're just about to hit the best time of year for it.

Well, there's a dude trying to defeat a demon king, but he's a human named Rama.  Hanuman's from some other story.  Still, +1 for remembering something!

As a complete aside, an Indian developer just released the first Indian-developed game for the PS2, called Hanuman: Boy Warrior.  From what I can tell, "atrocious" might be too kind a description for the quality of that game.

I finished the first book this morning.  If you're a fantasy fan, I'd recommend these books.  Ashok Banker's version of them is pretty new, but the basis for the books is something like 5,000 years old.  I definitely saw shades of LotR a bunch of places.

Link didn't work for me. :(
