eBay time
I brought home a whole bunch of stuff from mom's house that has been languishing in the bottom of my closet, lots of old toys and basketball cards and whatnot. Over the next couple o days I'm going to be putting it up on eBay to see if I can get some cash out of it. If anyone is interested, my eBay name is jforshey.

Among the stuff I'll be selling off are a few generation 1 Transformers and a set of Star Trek edition Ninja Turtles.

Blueness is next to godliness
So tonight I took in the performance of Blue Man Group at the Venetian in Las Vegas.





It blew my goddamn mind!

Seriously, I can't sleep because of it!

If you have the means to do so, I would wholeheartedly suggest seeing them perform. It will reconfigure your DNA!

Society has officially lost its mind
Lori just showed me something that was on Yahoo news this evening that I couldn't even believe could be true, until I saw it. American society is now, officially and completely, fucked.

What she showed me was a clip of a Fox news broadcast regarding the recent DVD release of Sesame Street. The anchor who was reading this story could scarecely believe what he was reading, you could tell it in his voice. See, the distributor that is releasing the DVDs has mandated that a label be put on the box stating that the show is FOR ADULTS ONLY! Yes, they have deemed that the earliest of the Sesame Street episodes are NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN!

Allow me to provide some examples:

The opening credits of the show feature kids running around and playing with "dirty farm animals" and climing on "rocks and trees that have no padding." Oh, mercy!

The Monsterpiece Theater sketches, where Cookie Monster dishes on the old Masterpiece Theater shows, were completely cut out of the DVDs because it advocates and promotes SMOKING! Why? BECAUSE COOKIE MONSTER IS HOLDING A PIPE, AND AT THE END OF THE SKETCH HE EATS IT! Say it ain't so!

Bert and Ernie are completely inappropriate because you have TWO GUYS LIVING IN THE SAME APARTMENT and parents will HAVE TROUBLE EXPLAINING THIS TO THEIR KIDS! Plus, the apartment is FALLING APART! And Ernie is MENTALLY SLOW! Heavens to Betsy!



Oh, and apparently the episodes that are shown on PBS and other networks have to be preceeded by a warning to parents that the show IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN!

If you wish to see this for yourself, go to yahoo.com and on the main page you'll see a video feature thing. Now, what you'll see up front is the "shocking ending of The Bachelor" but go ahead and click on it and suffer through the minute and a half clip. You'll then get a little scrolly thing that will appear at the bottom of the video window where you can select the sesame street clip.

Here's a NY Times article about it: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/18/magazine/18wwln-medium-t.html?_r=3&ref=magazine&oref=slogin&oref=slogin&oref=slogin

The countdown has begun
All of you Galaxies players out there, you have exactly 3 hours and 21 minutes until it all goes down. At midnight central time, all of the servers are coming down for Publish 25 which will be the massively hyped but extremely unwelcomed New Game Experience. Estimated downtime is approximately 17 hours, but will probably be a bit less.

Essentially, they take a nice MMORPG, granted it has a few bugs here and there, and turn it into a CONSOLE GAME! It's been dumbed down to the point that a PS3 or XBox360 could run it. Now, I've played the new game in its new form on the Testcenter, and it's not too shabby. I actually don't mind the changes, what I mind (along with everyone else) is the manner in which the change is happening. See, Sony Online (the wonderful people that brought us Evercrack) had been saying for months that profession revamps were coming and had just released a new 30 dollar expansion. Two days later, the announcement hits for this massive game change. Now, you know as well as I that this game change has to have been in the works for MONTHS rather than the days that it's been since it was announced, and it goes live in 3 hours. That's just flat out deception on the part of the developers, and I'm sure the subscription metrics are showing the displeasure with it.

So what am I to do with myself tomorrow while the patch goes in and the servers are down? It's estimated to come back up right around the time that I have to stop playing for the day because Lori comes home and it's time to eat. Food is more important than video games. Guess I could play KOTOR or Burnout or something.... or probably hang out on IMs all day. Who knows. Maybe I'll get lucky and when I crawl out of bed around 1PM tomorrow it'll be live and the servers will be back up. Not even all the servers, just as long as Valcyn is back up. we shall see.

I'm still awaiting the launch of Dark and Light, that one looks like it'll be uber-fun. No announcements yet of an actual release date though, all they'll say is "november 2005." I hate being kept in suspense.

The game is afoot!
The bet is on as of yesterday. Lori and I have decided it's nigh time to get off our arses and un-fat ourselves. I'm getting sick of looking and feeling like Jabba the Hutt. So, we've gotten these books that outline a halfway decent 12 week program that we both intend to follow. If it works, we're treating ourselves to a nice little vacation. She's set on going to Hawaii, I'd kinda like to go to Maho Beach in St. Maarten. I'm sure when the time comes we'll decide on something.

So, rather than the double QPC that I'd LIKE to be scarfing right now (damn you McDonalds for tasting so good and being so convenient) I'm working on a slab of grilled catfish. Still tastes good, but it's not the same as the Purina Geek Chow that I'm craving. Ah well, i'll be worth it when I'm lookin all buff n sexy.

Oh yeah, the muay thai lessons didn't pan out. They wanted 65 bucks a week. EACH. I can get a gym membership for a month for both of us for that kind of cash.

Well I did it
This weekend I saw Serenity.

Um, yeah.

While I agree that it was an entertaining film and I don't regret buying the ticket.....
I thought it was kinda corny. Granted, a little corn isn't a bad thing now and then.

I dunno, I guess I probably couldn't get into it as much as other people in the theater did since I hadn't seen it.

Still, it was entertaining. But by the end I just wanted to SMACK that googly-eyed chick with the uber kill-everything kung fu powers. She was starting to annoy me.

So how the hell do I cut entries in this thing?
In fact, how do I get the cool pictures next to my name? How do I make my LJ look like the same format as the others i've seen?

How the heck do I USE this silly thing?!

We regret to inform you....
This LJ is officially friendslocked effective immediately.

No lofty reasons of super secrecy, nothing in here I wanna hide.

I just feel like not having this thing open to total strangers, so if you wanna get hooked up just post a comment. We'll do lunch.

Or something.


I dunno.
