Movies and TV

The Oscar nominations are out and I have realized that: I don’t care; there are no more LotR love-fests; and, with the exception of Eternal Sunshine, I have not seen a single film on the list. In turn, this makes me care even less. It’s not that I haven’t watched a lot of movies in 2004 — I did — it’s just that all the movies that I watched last year have been considerably older than that. Hell, most of…

Steam Plunk Down

There’s a big blizzard outside, so today (er, today being Saturday) was bound to be a stay indoors type of day. Once I realized this in the early afternoon, I figured “eh, might as well get Steam and buy Half-Life 2″. I was going to eventually get it anyway, and it’s not like I need to go out into the cold to get it at retail, so why not? The first 10 minutes was easy. Just downloaded the client, installed…

Hey, look! A GameBoy Camera Gallery on Flickr.

Welcome To The World of PC Gaming

I brought the new PC rig home, went to the computer store orgy on College and picked up a new monitor, came home and hooked it all together and… the keyboard didn’t work. God damnit. Stupid wireless piece of shit. Everything else, though, was working flawlessly, so I am 101 keys away from getting back into the “has a decent computer and can play games released this year” club. It’s been a long time since I was a member. This…

Fiver

Even though it’s still unfinished and needs a lot of tweaks, I decided to change the style sheet anyway. I meant to have a complete site overhaul (not just style change, but dump MT and restructure everything) for the 31st, but that didn’t happen thanks to busyness. Then I just meant to change the style for the 31st, but I couldn’t even get that done in time. Putting this live will hopefully give me that extra bit of motivation to…
