Grindhouse

Tarantino is back, and he brought Rodriguez with him.

Oh hell yeah.

Tom Savini and Zombies? Machete? Rose McGowen as a grindhouse dame? I’m so very, very there.

The strange continues

So, dear readers, you might remember my post from a few weeks ago that brought into your awareness the existence of the Otherkin.

Well, evidently, they’re lonely.

I give you: OtherKin Dating.

Yes, really.

I shudder at the power of the Interweb, and fear the day it becomes sentient.

Missing my green note

…but rockin’ on the blue note.

itunes

I’m going to miss my lime green iTunes icon…but the new blue makes up for it:

New iPods! New iTunes! Movies! The new iPod shuffle is seriously the size of a quarter…it’s amazingly tiny. And we’ve got a space jump up to 80Gig, which is double the storage of my 3rd gen iPod.

And the biggest thing isn’t even out yet…iTV, the much-rumored set-top box from Apple that will stream wireless video signals to your television.

itv

Lots of questions, like: what codecs will the iTV support? Can I play my divx videos across it? Will it support 5-channel sound wirelessly?

DragonCon

I’ve spent the last 24 hours in Atlanta, GA at DragonCon. I thought I would share with you the single picture that is the essense of all things DragonCon:

This time to DragonCon, in Atlanta, GA. I’m gonna go get my geek on, play some games, run some tournaments, grab some schwag, sell some cards. More as I’m there and when I return.

Valleyschwag 4

IMG_7689

More Valleyschwag! This month wasn’t as good as last month, but the shirt is nice. I’m not sure wtf the mini beach chair is good for…holding my cell phone? The stickers are interesting, as always, and I got a bottle opener. But it does seem a bit small, comparatively…of course, Valleyschwag is undergoing some serious growing pains. I’m willing to give them a few months to work it out.

I’m also not sold on Perplexcity…I’m a gamer, and love games of all sorts, but I’m just not sure how to take such a massively distributed puzzle. Seems like more work than fun to me.

Reservoir Dogs: The Game

I’m pretty certain there’s no way in hell that the actual game can compare to these brilliant commercials:

BarCampRDU

BarCampRDU
Yet another reason that I miss the Triangle…incredibly fun things like BarCampRDU. It looks like Fred and Paul and the gang did an incredible job with this, and I’m sad to have missed it. Next year, guys?

Oh, and do you have any of those rockin’ tshirts left over in XL? 🙂
