Bought me some Rock Band 2 drums and cymbals and am learning to work with them.  They're fun, but feel a little useless at the moment - I could just hit whichever I want - drum or cymbal - so I wonder why I shelled out the extra dough... except that they look cool. :D

...you can't beat a dragon that encircles the world with a piece of toast!

Awesome - that's my favorite quote of the month.

:( Both the EB Games and the Gamestop near me had no movies at all, blu-ray or otherwise.  So instead I bought a set of Rock Band 2 drums.  That'll show 'em...

Finished Fable 2 last night and got very bummed out because
I picked the "needs of the many" ending where everyone but my family and dog comes back to life.  I knew it was the "right" choice to make - my character was the nicest person ever - but having the dog stay dead was actually depressing.  Of course, I have a pet in real life who's not doing so well at the moment, and that probably factored into it, but still...

Went and saw it today in 3D, and thought it was really good.  It was tough to not see my friend every time Rhino opened his mouth, but I'm really not saying it was good just because he was in it.  The current average on rottentomatoes is still up at 84%, which is pretty respectable, and FlixPulse (where regular people write one-sentence reviews) has 95% good reviews for it.

I am happy to say that they didn't put the best bits into the trailer, or at least not all of them.  The 3D stuff was cool, not over the top, and it added to the movie in a lot of little ways.  I'll be going to see it next week with my friend and his family, but we're going to the 2D version.  I'm interested to see what kind of difference it makes.

I'm still reading Inkspell.

I have Inkheart (and I think I also have Inkspell), but haven't even picked it up off the stack.  I saw a trailer today for the movie and thought "I bet that's a good book."  I'm going to have to move it up to the top of the stack. :)

It looks like it's just another movie to please the fans with canon nonsense instead of just being a good movie, which is what was annoying to me about the TNG movies.

I understood this new movie to be a near-complete break with established canon, with
evil time-travelling Romulans and good time-travelling Spock.

... now I just feel like a jerk. :(

Yeah, his voice is worse than Batman's. He has no reason to disguise it...

Hmm.  That's a tough call for me.  The chain-smoker thing can be annoying, but it is supposed to be a mystery who Rorschach is.  In the comic, he can talk all he wants and no one will ever recognize him.  In the movie, though...

So... I don't know how many folks here are excited about Disney's new movie, Bolt, but I am.  It opens this week, and a good friend of mine is one of the stars - his name's Mark Walton, and he plays the hamster, Rhino.  I'm very excited for him - it's like his big break in voice acting.  His usual job is as a storyboard guy (I can never remember his actual title).  OK - I'll admit it, I'm jealous, too.  What cartoon watcher hasn't thought that being in voice-over work would be cool?  But still - more excited for a friend than jealous.

Anyway, all of the reviews so far are good.  Most include some comment that boils down to "it's not as good as the great stuff Pixar has put out, but it's wroth watching - way better than the other movies Disney's been making for a long time."  Most also include a comment about my friend and that he does a great job, which is very cool.

What I really came to say was: if you're thinking about going to see it, please do.  The more buzz there is around my friend's character, the more likely he is to get a spinoff or more roles or something.

I've actually written a couple of FAQs.  One for a game I liked and one for a game I hated and couldn't play through without a map.  They do take a long time, and with a great resource out there like GameFAQs, I don't see any reason for us to try to compete with them.  As has been said, we keep our focus tight so that we can keep our quality to the maximum.

After a friend lost my PS2 memory card, I bought a new one this week and started over in Kingdom Hearts 2 - the only game I really cared about on the memory card.  Almost done with Roxas!

(I also a wireless guitar with a removable neck that I really didn't need.  But it's wireless!  And the neck comes off for easier storage!  And it was cheap, but still in excellent condition!  I couldn't resist.)

Finished making my first million in Fable 2 today.  Have been behaving myself, and am now trying to get corrupt enough to open a demon door before I hit the Crucible.  There's nothing left to buy, so I just went around raising the rent and prices on everyone to be a jerk.

I'm listening to a free audio book that I got from librivox.org right now - it's an old sci-fi book called The Time Traders, by Andre Norton.  I think I've pimped librivox here before, so I won't again.

I'm watching BBC America, and I have Fox News, ABC News, and CNN all up on my laptop.  It's interesting to see how different the numbers are between them.  Right now:

BBC says 49 McCain, 103 Obama
ABC says 49 McCain, 102 Obama
CNN says 34 McCain, 81 Obama
Fox says 54 McCain, 103 Obama

Until just now, Fox was way off from everyone else.  Now they're a lot closer.  CNN seems to be staying very cautious.
