Left 4 Dead Free Trial

Starting Friday morning, at 12:01am GMT (this afternoon at 4:01pm PST / 7:01pm EST), Steam is offering a free 24 hour trial of the PC version of Left 4 Dead.  It’s a great opportunity to try out a (as I’ve heard tell) fantastic zombie survival game without any obligation or cost.  It’s a great offer, [...]

Movie Remakes

Why does the movie industry feel the need to saturate viewers with movie remakes?  Why not do something original more often?  The last few years, especially, has seen a veritable explosion of movie remakes, and it seems the trend is far from over. Anyone remember the 1991 Phoebe Cates / Rik Mayall film Drop Dead [...]

Subtle Advertising

Last night, Lindsey and I saw a very interesting Schick razor commercial for women.  I won’t do it the disservice of attempting to describe it with my paltry vocabulary.  Here it is in all of its glory: Brilliant.  Absolutely brilliant. -Because I said so

Super Mario Galaxy Progress Update 9

A much shorter gap between 8 and 9 than 7 and 8!  Going into Progress Update 9, I had 1 star remaining (that I know of) before the Kitchen Observatory’s Bowser battle.  I jumped back into the Ghostly Galaxy for the final star.  This level introduced me to the Bomb Boos, black ghosts that would [...]

Shao Kahn is kinda pervy

Late last year, Lindsey and I came across an amazing video on YouTube showing Shao Kahn’s creepy perverted side near the end of a match between Sub-Zero and Liu Kang.  Poor Subby Wubby.  He shouldn’t have to put up with that kind of harassment. -Because I said so

Super Mario Galaxy Progress Update 8

Never fear, I haven’t given up on this game quite yet!  Life has been good at keeping me away from it for the past couple of weeks, but no longer!  Progress update 8 finds me back in the Kitchen Observatory, collecting more stars!  Having completed all but one galaxy in the Kitchen Observatory (other than [...]

MehCast Fail

I’m sitting here on my iPhone in a Starbucks about 45 minutes from home while Lindsey handles a very last minute Mary Kay appointment. I brought the laptop and our broadcasting equipment so that I could do the MehCast on time. Twenty minutes to show time, I try to boot up, only to be greeted [...]

Treasure Island

I’ve read this book many times before, and each time is just as fun as the last.  Written by Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island was meant for his stepson, who inspired the entire story by drawing a simple island map where buried treasure lay.  While a children’s book at heart, the novel deals with many [...]

What Font Are You?

I noticed an entry on the Fresno Beehive about this site and, having nothing else better to do while at work, I gave it a try.  My results: You are Times New Roman Dude. You have three names. You’re blue blood, old money, landed gentry, confident, assured; perhaps a tad old fashioned but you don’t [...]
