KOTOR 3, rumored to be MMO

One of my favorite Star Wars games ever was Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords. It was so immersive, and deliciously Star Wars-y. Now, Lucas Arts is giving control to incredible developer Bioware to make a massively multiplayer online (MMO) roleplaying game (RPG).

Why would I be disappointed? Because the first two games were stand-alone, and so well done. Sometimes people just want to play a game… and not be immersed in an out of control pre-teen environment. Blergh.

Here’s the full story from Tech Observer.

Keith’s favorite chef takes over Dinner- Impossible

Go Michael Symon! He’s such a funny, and honestly down to earth person. I read his blog regularly (well, he’s mostly too busy to blog now). You should totally check out an already awesome show that is going to get better.

Too bad that Robert Irvine is a liar, liar, pants on fire. I liked him too, but don’t enjoy people who fabricate things.

I didn’t fight in ‘Nam so people could lie on their resumes.

Guilty Pleasures of TV

I can’t help it, but every time I watch this program I feel better about the world. I don’t mean hug a tree, feed my kids only organic… I just mean, the kids are cute. They are taught to say please and thank you, and to be kind to each other. Its refreshing. Sure Kate’s a bit high-strung for my liking… but hey.


Seasonal Affective Disorder

Most people are aware of SAD, which tends to affect the greatest amount of people in the winter months. What is interesting is that the very same environ thought to cause SAD for winter, is thought to do the same to some people in the summer:

Most agree that a healthy diet, and plenty of exercise will improve one’s quality of life, as well as their outlook. Me, I just like some nachos.

Star Wars Red-Uniform- Clone Wars’ Baby Jedi Is Marked For Death

Meredith Worner at io9.com, sums up what pretty much every hardcore Star Wars fan is feeling about the summer movie “The Clone Wars” newest character. Clearly anyone attached to the character Anakin Skywalker as a protege is marked for an exquisite death.

Let’s face the facts. In the previous incarnation of the Clone Wars cartoon which aired on the cartoon network, we saw Anakin Skywalker go apeshit on Asajj Ventress, and perhaps now we’ll learn the true reason why. No, Anakin’s not only a douche, but he has a vendetta.

Follow the link above for some pretty convincing evidence. As for me, I’m going to imagine Ahsoka as the new Jar Jar Binks, only this time… wearing a Star Trek crewman’s red uniform.

Almost 40 years later, the moon reveals water

Lunar rocks collected in the 1970s have been re-analyzed and now purportedly reveal almost as much water concentration as the Earth. No… I’m really not shitting you!

How I found Jeebus….

Okay, so big whoop. I’m a Star Wars geek. If you didn’t know this… you probably don’t know me. So, the world’s biggest, brightest, most wonderful thing ever is coming so soon. Its not world peace, thank god. And you already know that Matthew McConaughey’s girlie pooped out his kid… so what else is left?

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

My only problem is… X-Box or PS3? Recommendations welcome in the non-existent comments

Once again, Graphjam makes me laugh.

GraphJam, its whats for dinner.

It’s a boy. Matthew McConaughey.

The true question is: who cares? I wasn’t at the birth, mind you; however, I have it on good authority that the baby was born shirtless, jogging and playing a bongo.

Here’s the link to the story about Baby McConaughey, in case you give a shit.

Actually, please for the love of god– don’t click that link. Instead… watch the following impression that Matt Damon does of McConaughey, and enjoy the snark.

R.I.P. Voicemail

I’m one of those people who gets a voicemail, listens to who it is from and hits delete. I tend not to leave voicemails, but that is generally because I loathe the telephone altogether. I’m somewhat like Bubbleboy John Travolta, except that I don’t long to reach out to the world. I’d rather not let you into my plastic.

Anywho, an interesting article by Michael Arrington at TechCrunch is linked, “Think Before You Voicemail.”

Down with voicemail. Up with people?
