Rock Band for Wii

My preorder from Amazon was delivered this past weekend. Totally excellent, especially the drum kit set. The wireless guitar looks fancier than the Guitar Hero guitar. I find the singing to be the most energy sapping and least fun part. Probably because I sound awful!

Magellan alive again

I was starting to hate the Magellan Maestro 4250 I got for xmas. Since April, it's been a dud with various frozen screens or not even turning on. Finally took the time to call the Magellan company. Turns out I needed a firmware update that April! Just goes to prove, need to check firmware when getting a new electronic goody. What a pain! I guess I have to register everything now so I can get the email telling me to get an update.

Refurbed Sony mylo

Got the first "edition" of the Sony mylo from the Sony outlet website. It's very cute, but a little slow with the web. Need to find a memory stick duo to up the 1gb memory.

Millionth time....

I was in actually not obsessively checking the computer (at least as much in the past), saw the bag o'crap come up, pushed "I want one" and....I get the spinning arrow, the bouncing beach ball, twice, and then "Error." Damn.

More obsessive checking of the woot site for the bag o' crap began at 10pm tonight.

"Prince Caspian"

Saw "Prince Caspian" the other day. It started out slow, but ended well. Peter, Edmund, even Susan, do a lot of physical fighting. At first I didn't like the actor who played Caspian, but he grew on me at the end. This was less "wonderous" than the first movie, more violent and despairing. The "bad guys" all look sort of Spanish and speak with a sort of Spanish accent. I remember rereading the books a few years ago, and one of them was really anti-middle-eastern. I wonder how they'll film that one.

Wii Fit: day 2

This time I did more stuff. I sucked at all of them, except lunges. The wii trainer said I had strong legs....not true.... I think it's from suspending my butt over public toilets without touching the seat for all these years! The wii (it's not a person! I say to myself) told me to not even attempt the "jackknife" because I wasn't strong enough yet. Harsh.


This is one of the goriest movies I have ever seen (alongside "Gladiator"). I don't know how all the Spartans have such defined six pack abs. The look of the movie is very much like a graphic novel from which I believe it derives. It's very unique. Lots of black blood splattering around, decapitated heads, a wall of human corpses: yucky. Lots of dudes with incredible six pack abs who only wear a cape, a loincloth thing, and some sandals, acting really macho: yummy.

Wii Fit : I'm tired after 10 minutes

The balance board is really sensitive. Already I know my left leg is stronger than my right (freakish, don't know why). To make my BMI 22, I have to lose 16 lbs. Good luck to me.

Wii Fit

According to Wii Fit, I have the body of a 47 year old. Needless to say, I am quite younger than this. Hopefully someday I will match my age!
