Mark Zuckerburg, the Facebook Man Meets Himself, Twice.

It is exactly how it sounds. Decent SNL clip... I'm still not sure how I feel about the guy, but either way you can't argue his success. I still need to get around to watching the Social Network...

Hi there, I heard you like super effecient cars from the future. Well this one is [nearly] here... and it's just that. It looks pretty crazy

Engadget reported;

"executives Ferdinand Piech and Martin Winterkorn both confirmed that the car will be produced in small numbers, first for Germany and later coming to the US and China. It's powered by a diesel engine with less than one liter of displacement, managing 313mpg combined (that's Imperial, 260mpg using American units) putting out just 48hp and thankfully assisted by a 27hp electric motor. "



That's awesome.

I love German engineering, bring on more.

Wallpapers Worth Saving


It's official, the human race has just sunk to a new low... really... really.... I can't even begin to talk about how dumb this is. Like.... I can't. I really can't.

Yes, this is a jacket built for iPads.

Movies Worth Watching: Action - True Romance

This is not a movie about love. Unless you love pure awesome, in which case you won't be disappointed. This movie gets a lot of queues from Bonnie and Clyde, but takes a different direction... rather than 'anti-hero's' the characters remain more neutral... so it lets you just like them for them.

It's a great action/thriller/comedy (with a few hints of romance). I love this movie, and I'm very surprised at the number of people who haven't seen it.. It's directed by the guy who gave us Top Gun, and features Brad Pitt, Gary Oldman, Christopher Walken, Samuel L Jackson, James Goldofini (Tony Sorprano), Val Kilmer... just to name a few. But I really like the acting from the two leads, (Christian Slater, Patricia Arquett) who are relatively unknown compared to their cast mates.

It's got a solid story, and it keeps you interested throughout. Give it a shot!

Be A Man, Man (Part 3)

While I normally look to Jeff Bridges for my manly inspiration, I thought Wikus Van De Merwe was a better example for tonights episode.

Step 1) Go watch District 9, then proceed to step 2.

Step 2) The reason I want you to watch this, is because its a great example of my point tonight . That point is simple .

Learn to embrace your inner warrior.

You all have a warrior inside you waiting to be unleashed. No matter who you are, where you're from, its there. It may be under layers of coward, but you cannot defeat your inner instict. It's the same instinct that drives you to chase women  even though they likely piss you off more often than not.

Let me ask you something... Have you ever wondered how thieves can steal, murderers can murder, and rapists can rape... Yet still go home and sleep at night?

These are all elements of your inner warrior that we ALL have... It's why you get the dark thoughts in the back of your mind... "I want to steal that..." "I want to beat that guy to death."

The thief steals, to survive. To feed him or his family, to release great struggle he's most likely been facing most of his life.  Survival is the strongest instict we have. [Survival]

The murderer kills to satisfy a thirst for blood... a thirst for violence. This is actually the most basic of all of the warrior urges. However violence and murder is just a means to survival. [Fight]

The rapist  rapes to fufill the primal instinct to reproduce, whether the recipient  likes it or not [Reproduction]

Despite what you may think, these are the most natural "feelings" a man can have... Survival, Fight, and Reproduction. You may think these don't apply in our modern society, but they very much do. When you strip every single one of us down to our hard coded cores, we are the same warrior cave men we were at the dawn of the human kind.

In fact, what our 'modern society' has lead to is a bunch of ball-less passive aggressive beta's and a handful of delusional wanabe alpha's.

We're told that these emotions and instincts (the most natural of them all) are wrong and evil.

Well enough...

I say end the sherade today, embrace your inner warrior that has existed the second oxygen entered your lungs... Stop getting walked on by women and fake alphas, become a REAL man and begin living your REAL life.

How? You don't have to steal, murder and rape, but you need to realize your inner urges and embrace them.

Survival. Society trains you to always put others first, to let the nearest person run a train on you whenever they feel like, then appologize  to them for not bringing scented lube. Stop that. You are not a servant or a samaratan. Stop looking out for everyone else first and worry about YOU. People will inevitably let you down and you die alone. Realize that you are your own best ally in life and worry about you, everyone else (even your family/friends) have their own ally too. Let them worry about them. Society tells us that's selfish, but society also elected George Bush, and actually lets Sarah Palin talk on international television. Instinct knows best. This isn't to say be an asshole, it just means make sure you are always taken care of, then worry about everyone else.

Fight. Stop being a spineless loser and realize that you're not made of glass, and that most of your body is engineered for fighting. Lift weights, go to the gym, learn self defense, learn a fighting style... And when somone tries to fight you, whether you think you can win or not, FIGHT them. It's better to die on your feet than live on your knees. Nobody remembers the guy who escaped the fight and died in his bed of old age. This feels great, and you won't know it till you do it. This comes in very useful a LOT, and if you're smart you shouldn't ever have to fight.

Reproduce. Monogamy is the biggest form of bullshit man has ever invented since religion. Everything in our hard coding is against one partner. You do not have a soulmate. She is not special. She had desirable  traits that you'd like to pass onto an offspring. Anything else you attach to it is just as make believe as the man who lives in the sky and throws thunderbolts at you if you don't sacrifice a lamb every Wednesday afternoon. The only reason we are able to partner off (and stay partnered) is because as we get older, the chances of finding another desireable mate are significantly reduced and therefor illogical instinctually. It IS natural to have many partners in your lifetime. There is no "one" there is simply a point where it becomes inefficient to keep looking, and more efficient to reproduce with a single partner. When those lines meet, you have found your "one". Some meet earlier than others. If you force this, you will break up. Why? Because its in your body's best interest to look for another (or more partners) females have very similar urges. Society has bullshitted you since birth, it's time for you to wake up. I'm not saying only look for sex, I'm just saying have fun. If it happens, it happens. If you have to try real hard and force it, it's not going to work.

So, if you can stop buying into the bs, and start following your inner instincts, you will be well on your way to becoming a real warrior... A real alpha... A real man.

Also, I know I haven't mentioned it once, but if you read this, and watch the movie, you will understand how the two relate.

Dead Space 2 Review

I got a chance to play Dead Space 2, so I thought I'd give you guys a review of what I found.

Well, this is one aspect that Dead Space excels at. It truly engages you almost in a 'haunted amusement park' type theme... constantly scaring even the most stoic players. The combat is highly gratifying. The number of different ways you can gib the necrophytes is awesome.

There are surprisingly few bosses, which is a bit of a disappointment, but the regular combat is fun enough to keep it interesting. This is of course a survival horror... meets 3rd person shooter, and it plays very well at that. That being said, it is quite linear in comparison to Dead Space 1, but I think that's a good thing. You're on a crash course to who knows where, and you're just enjoying the ride, essentially.

The game simply looks great, no denying it. The look and feel sucks you in and doesn't let go. Sound is a big one, obviously... so I definitely recommend playing this on loud volume with silence around you, for the full effect. Gibbing monsters hasn't looked this pretty in a while.

I'm sure most of you will like the story, but to me it just felt too much 'go here and do this' and not so much focusing on the development of the world and your actions. That being said, the character development is incredible. You can truly see the turmoil and struggle here, and that makes up for the otherwise lacking arch of the genaeral story. Overall it's not bad, and I wasn't all that disappointed, it just could of done more.

Do not trade in your Black Ops. This is not going to replace it. The multiplayer is bland and boring, despite the large number of 'unlockables' the game modes are just incredibly basic and aren't ranging enough to keep interesting.  It's just standard humans vs monsters (necrophytes)... the typical play on good guys vs the terrorists that you've played to death. Nothing interesting in here, really.

A great game if you're playing it to get scared, or for the action. If you're playing it for story, I'd say hold your breath for Mass Effect 3 (Try not to pass out). The multiplayer was disappointing, but then again, is this the real reason you're playing this game? There is even re-playability here, which gives it more points in my books. Kudos to the Devs on this one, Dead Space 2 is probably the best game of this genre this console generation in my opinion.

Music Worth Trying (Techno)

Sorry I've been busy guys, haven't had time to post the amount I'd like to... I've been really busy, but it should all calm down soon. Here's an awesome techno song for those of you who like it.

This is an epic Minecraft meets Kinect video from Nathan Viniconis. There are several other Minecraft meets Kinect videos out there, but none like this. This is truly awesome. Any Minecraft fans out there will hopefully appreciate this as much as I do.

Also, kudos to Microsoft for making a truly amazing product capable of some awesome stuff. :)

Fox 11 - Trolling

I saw this on Gno's blog... and I couldn't resist... for any bloggers we don't share, everyone needs to watch this... and I am absolutely 100% convinced nobody can watch this without laughing. (God Mode)

The challenge has been issued.

Starcraft 2

So I've been getting back into Starcraft 2, and have begun watching GomTV. There are some really awesome games. If you're a SC2 fan, definitely check it out here. Anyways, so if anyone remembers EGIdra from SC1, he's been playing some solid games this GSL season... However his most recent series against Jinro (Team Liquid) didn't go as planed.

Anyways, I am hopefully not the only one out there following this, it's definitely worth checking out and is far less nerdy than other 'pro gaming' out there.

Also, if any of you other guys play SC2 regularly and want some skilled guys to play with, feel free to add me... 

Nemesis (790 character code).

 I'm on pretty regularly after about 5PM.

Here's a video from the first game (it's not a bad one);

Nintendo 3DS

Some info on the 3DS was released today.

Firstly... some info on the 3DS...

It comes with a Camera, a Pedometer, the ability to play mp3's... and you know... play games.

The starting lineup is expected to be comprised of about 30 or so games.

It's slated to be released somewhere in the window (which begins March 27 and closes on June 7)

How much will this toy cost you?


Will I be getting one? Probably not, but only because I like not having dementia.

Here's the promo ad:

Stumble Upon

As you all know, the intarwebs is a series of tubes. Tubes that are frequently clogged by useless feces... kind of like a sewage drains.

What is the cure for this? Well I'm sure many of you visit some kind of forums or another for your premium content, but alas, there is another way!

Meet StumbleUpon,

A site where you choose your interests, click a button, and randomness ensues. But how is that better than goggle? Well for one, goggle straps can chafe at the side of your head unless they are high quality. Second, content is rated by users... anything from blogs, to news, to videos, to naked pictures of you in the bathtub your grandmother took when you were 32. High rated content appears more frequently, and poop rated content, doesn't. That being said, what about content that hasn't been rated yet?

That's where you, the devoted and adoring internet professional clicks a 'like' button, writes a review, and throws down a sign warning future venturers of the gigantic poop bear in their path. (if it doesn't eat them and smear its crappy content all over them first)

So as you can see, some great stuff is revealed. In the past week or so, I have found a TON of really cool old and new stuff I have never seen before and I have to say I am impressed.

You guys should check it out.

You'll need to register, but that's as easy as twiddling your nether-regions with a battery-operated samophlange.

Once you do that, add me and I'll share with you some of the stuff I've found.

If you already stumble, add me anyway, so we can grow the community!

Feathers In My Chicken

Feathers in MY CHICKEN!

I love this. It's Not Safe For Work, and not all you will necessarily enjoy it. I personally find it hilarious. This is old, but I'm sure not all of you have seen it. Watch it nao!

Steve Job Takes Leave From Apple

Could Lucifer himself indeed be mortal?

Who am I kidding, that's giving Jobs too much credit.

Apparently Steve Jobs has taken medical leave from Apple leaving Tim Cook in his place during that time. Jobs says he's 'on leave to focus on his health'.

Despite my hatred for Apple, I wish him well to get better soon. If Apple dies then Microsoft becomes a monopoly and we can't have that. :D

Also, a tip for you angry fan boys... make sure your finger isn't on top of the antenna when you're typing your seething rage into your iPhones. :D

GTA 4 Carmageddon!

GTA 4 Carmageddon! - Watch more Game Trailers

This make me laugh haha. Just watching the car's fly around like crazy. When the taxi hits him when he's riding the bike gets me every time.

Hope you guys enjoy.

Cook Like A Man, Man (Part 2)

Welcome to the second episode of my "Cook Like a Man, Man"

If you gave last weeks shot a try, we made Rib-Eye Steak with a Whiskey Cream Sauce.

For that dinner, I also made potato skins but I didn't post the recipe.

However, that I will give to you today.

This is really easy to make, and only has a couple very common ingredients.

When to cook this:
  • If you have a date over at your place and you have other plans for dinner but want an awesome snack.
  • If you're hosting a get-together at your place and want an awesome snack.
  • If you're going to a friends party or whatever and you want to bring an awesome snack.
  • If you want to win over someone's unflinching awe-inspired loyalty.


8 Slices of Thick-Cut Bacon

8 Russet Potatoes (Yes, it matters what kind)

Canola Oil (Yes, it matters what kind)

1 & 1/2 Cups of Cheddar Cheese

1 Cup of Sour Cream

4 Green Onions (Chopped)



1. Preheat Oven to 400° F. (Make sure it's DONE preheating)

2. Fry the bacon. Don't let it get crispy, hard, or burnt. You want it cooked, nothing more, because you're going to chop it up.

3. Wash the potatoes (scrub them), then liberally rub the skin with canola oil. 

If you can, use a brush like this:

4. Place the potatoes on a baking pan and place them in the oven (on bake) for 45 minutes for an hour (check up on them at 45 minutes.) They need to be 'fork' tender (need to be able to easily stick a fork in them)

5. Take the potatoes out, and slice them in half lengthwise.

6. With a spoon, scoop out the inner flesh, leaving a thin layer inside. (don't scoop to the skin)

7. Brush both sides (the inside and out) of the potato skins with canola oil. Salt both sides liberally.

8. Place the skins cut side down on the pan and return to the oven.

9. Bake for 7 minutes, then flip them to the other side, then put them back in the oven for another 7 minutes, or until the skins are crispy.

10. Grate the cheddar.

11. Chop the bacon and green onions into bits.

12, Spread the cheese into each potato skin, sprinkle the bacon on top of the cheese.

13. Put the skins back into the oven just until it melts.

14. Just before serving, spoon 1 tablespoon of sour cream onto each skin and sprinkle on the bacon and chopped green onion.

15. Enjoy being someone's new favorite person.

Cook Like A Man, Man (Finished Product)

My first post of Cook Like A Man, Man... because of some camera issues I wasn't able to post my finished product until now. It may not look like much, but this thing packed a hell of a taste punch.

For those who don't remember, this was the Whiskey Cream Rib Eye Steak I had cooked.

That post can be found here.

Check it out.

Those are also my potato skins that I made the same night. I'll post their recipe here in a moment. Hope any of you that actually make it enjoy.

A truly amazing and creative way to make music... but in the end it's just tones and sounds. The visuals are great too. This video is awesome and you should all check it out.

Let me know what you think.

Music Worth Trying (1): Parody

I figured I'd show you guys an awesome parody song once a week also. This features Stephen Lynch, and he is awesome. Definitely worth checking out.

Hope you guys like it.

Music Worth Trying (1): Trance

I like this song a lot because it has some dubstep elements to it, but is a trance song by definition. It has a pretty nice beat.  The video isn't half bad either.

This is my trance song for the week. :D

Music Worth Trying (1): Heavy Metal

I'm going to start another weekly segmant; music worth trying. This will usually consist of bands not entirely mainstream, and it's worth giving a shot.

This particular song is a heavy metal song from the band Iced Earth.... and it's incredibly bad ass, if you listen to the music.

Hope you guys enjoy.

Be A Man, Man.(Part 2)

1. Stop taking shit.
This means stop compromising what you believe. Don't confuse this with #6. When someone 'tells' you to do something, and it conflicts with what you believe in, don't budge, even if it means 'getting in trouble', fired, etc. Even if your beliefs are dumb, it doesn't matter... they make you who you are, and if you bend them for anyone (even that hot girl you want) then you're nothing.

2. Learn to be realistic with your goals.
This means if you have trouble getting girls, don't expect to get an 8 or a 9. Infact, pick out a girl that you think is cute that you deserve, and pick her 'ugly' friend instead. Part of the reason guys have a hard time getting girls is because they don't have any experience. If you're too picky at first, you'll never get any experience.

This applies to other aspects of life. Find your boundaries, and set goals slightly out of reach, but not in the sky.

3. Set expectations for yourself, don't break them.
This doesn't mean 'I want to get ripped by June' or I want a hot girl by  October'. Instead, set exceptions for yourself like 'I will go to the gym 4 days a week' (and don't attach a goal to it, just do it)

If you're struggling in life, it usually means you're not awesome. You know the guy on TV you see with the awesome car, girl, house, job, etc? You want that stuff right? Well you'll never get it unless you're awesome. You get awesome one step at a time. That means doing new things, learning new things. Learn to shoot a gun, learn a new language, take a fighting style of some kind, go workout. 

4. Don't whine. Nobody gives a shit about your problems.
If you're bitching about how hard life is, you're doing it wrong. Life is only as hard as you make it. You can get a job, you can get in shape, you can get a girl... you just are too damn lazy to do it. Get off your ass and start the steps.

5. Do stuff. Nobody accomplished anything by siting at home doing nothing.
This goes back to point 3. Try to go out and do new things as often as you can, even if you're unsure of the result, you might surprise yourself. Go in with the attitude 'I'm broadening myself' and know that even if you don't enjoy what you're doing, you're more awesome for doing it. You now know more than you did an hour ago.

6. Say yes, don't say no. 
When you are ASKED (not to be confused with told) to go out and do something, even if you think it's lame, do it. If you keep getting asked to go out and do lame stuff, find better friends. Every time you say no, it's a missed opportunity. I hate myself for everyone time I've said no to something.

Also, when you're out, if stuff is lame, and you're not enjoying yourself, or if something upsets you, stop. Realize that again you're gaining something from doing whatever you're doing, (even if it's just an experience or memory) and just do it. Then if you hate it, go home, and don't do it again.

7. When you are unsure, do the opposite of what you normally would.
When you question yourself, chances are it's because your brain knows something to be true, but your conscious doesn't want to accept it. This alone makes a HUGE difference. Go with your gut. When you're unsure, just decide upon what you normally would, then do the complete opposite.

Team DPE

I saw this on the interwebs and thought I'd share it with you guys. It made me laugh out loud, really. I've been really busy and I start a new job tomorrow, but tomorrow I should get some quality posts up. Hope you guys enjoy this as much as I did.

Crazy Art

Some truly epic artwork created by a budding young duo. The music in the background is also awesome during this montage of awesomeness.

I have a pretty big passion for art like this, so I thought I'd share it with you guys. It definitely has a different look to it.

Let me know what you think.

Motorola Atrix

If you haven't already heard about this, now you have. This phone is definitely a whole new level on smart phones in general. Shown at CES 2011, it is not easily forgotten.

Sporting an ultra powerful dual-core, with incredibly robust docking capabilities, a solid version of Android 2.2, and an amazing crisp display, this phone is HIGHLY anticipated in the phone world.

Hats off to Motorola for their design in this one... it is clearly a huge investment on their part.

But this is a phone to keep your eyes on, as it will most likely be the new benchmark in coming years.

Razer Switchblade

Shown at CES 2011... the Razer switchblade is making more than a few ripples in the Netbook market with this tiny powerhouse.

The idea behind this is to be an epic bundle in a small package... just a mini Netbook capable of BIG gaming. Featuring Windows 7 (Love it) and an adaptable keyboard... this thing just might have some legs.

I've used Razer products in the past, and they're not known to skimp. It's clear, even though they claim this just to be a concept, that there is a lot invested and riding on this beast, and Razer is not doing that for naught.

Look for this sometime this year, hopefully.

Let me know what you think.

Off to College

Well guys, I'm deciding it's time for me to settle down and go to school. I put off going to school because I moved to the US to work for several years... but now I want to buckle down and hit the books.

I'm leaning toward a graphic design course, because that's the kind of thing I have a passion for, and I have quite a few friends in the industry.

Just wanted to ask you guys if you have any suggestions for solid other courses to take in addition to that my first year? (Just things worth taking, for the experience/knowledge/etc)

Anyways, wish me luck... will be sending my application in within a week or so.

Cook Like A Man, Man

This is a new segment of my blog I hope to update on a weekly basis.

This is for all you guys out there who want to impress the lady folk with a damn good meal while not looking like a pansy while doing it.

Also, this is a great meal to just make for yourself, because it kicks ass.

So without further adieu, this is my recipe to make;

Rib Eye Steak with a Whiskey Cream Sauce

****I will upload my pic of what the finished product looks like sometime tomorrow (trust me, it's awesome)****

This meal feeds 2. You will be stuffed. This is easy to make, and pretty much anyone can do this if you can follow instructions.


2 Rib Eye Steaks

2 Diced Onions 

5 Tablespoons of Butter

Salt and Pepper

1/4 Cup of Light Cream

1/4 Cup of Whiskey (Your choice, taste matters, alcohol content doesn't)

1/4 Cup of Beef Broth

Some Flour (Just in Case)


  • Put 2 Tablespoons of Butter in a frying pan, put the plate onto medium heat.
  • You need to occasionally swish it around in the pan, so the bottom of the pan gets coated with melted butter
  • While the butter is melting, dice up 2 onions (into little bits)
  • Throw 3 Tablespoons of Diced Onion into the pan, once the butter is melted, make sure you're on medium heat.
  • Let the onion get soft and browned, (usually about 4-5 minutes)
  • Turn the burner off. (This is important)
  • Pour in the 1/4 Cup of Whiskey. It is important that the pan is hot enough when you do this.
  • Let the whiskey evaporate for a few minutes, if it's not evaporating, you can put the burner on low-medium heat. If you still have a lot, you can pour some of it out. There should still be a little left in the pan, but not much.
  • Turn the burner back on to medium
  • Throw in 1 Tablespoon of Butter
  • Pour in the 1/4 Cup of Beef Broth after the butter is melted
  • Wait till the mix begins to bubble, then count out 30 seconds.
  • After 30 seconds, slowly pour in the 1/4 Cup of Cream
  • Stir Occasionally (Once every 30 Seconds or so)
  • Let the mix cook for 4-6 minutes on medium heat, then turn the burner to low.
  • Turn another burner onto Medium.
  • Throw 2 Tablespoons of Butter into a different frying pan, then the 2 Ribeye Steaks after the butter is melted.
  • Generously salt and pepper both sides. Cook the steaks on both sides, it's about 4-6 minutes on each side for medium rare, but you're the judge.
  • By the time your steaks are nearing done, your sauce should now have thickened. If your steaks are almost ready, and your sauce is still runny and broth-like, you can do 1 of 2 things (I needed to on my first time) you can A) add a tablespoon of more cream, or B) add a teaspoon of flour. If you add the flour, you have to make sure to THOROUGHLY mix the sauce. You also should put the burner back up to medium heat, as the heat helps thicken the sauce. You may need to do both A and B.
  • Your sauce won't be 'thick' but it shouldn't be like pure liquid either. Either way though, it should taste awesome.
  • Prepare your steaks nicely on 2 plates, with a side of your choice (I recommend potato skins, a recipe I'll post next week probably), and then spoon the sauce on generously (more=better)
  • Prepare to be someone's new favorite person.
  • Profit.

Unique Internet ID for all Americans

Hey, you like being anonymous online? Not anymore. President Obama has given the Commerce Department the authority to implement a 'national cyber security measure' that involves giving every single  American a unique online identity.

The wonderful U.S. Commerce Secratary Gary Locke mentioned that 'the new system would not be akin to a national ID card, or a government controlled system, but that it would enhance security and reduce the need for people to memorize dozens of passwords online'

This basically means the second you log online, they know what you, John Smith, are doing at all times. What websites you visit, what content you're posting/reading... everything. It has been dubbed a measure for the citizen's security, but in reality it just gives the government absolute control to look over your shoulder whenever they damn well please. (Not that they couldn't do that already, but this is mainstream and easy... right out in the open)

I wasn't sure if I had made the right decision moving from the US back to Canada, but after this (and unless I'm just largely mistaken about this whole thing) I am very glad I did.

What do you guys think?


This is awesome. This was shown at this years CES. It's an 'unlimited touch point' screen. It features full HD resolution, and will be able to be hooked up to a PC for input. This thing sports some pretty impressive technology sporting a 46 inch screen with 12 inches of depth in order to provide sufficient space for the infrared cameras embedded in its back to capture the surface.

Take yours home for the low, low price of $17,000.

P.S. whenever I read 'MultiTouch', I actually read 'Multi Pass' out loud to myself. Am I alone?

Where Would You Want To Live?

Hey Guys.

I'm just curious... but if you had a choice to be born in a different country, where would you choose? I was  born in South Africa, and I've lived in the United States, and now live in Canada. But if I had to choose, I think I'd choose Germany.

I've actually started to learn German and it's a pretty awesome language.

The reason I would choose Germany is I have a great respect for the culture, attitude, and drive for excellence many of the people hold. It could be argued the same qualities are true for North Americans, but I don't think they apply to the general public so much over here. I had some German friends when I was in the States, and just talking to them showed me how much they valued everything they got, because they worked damn hard to get it.

This attitude showed true at the amazing German engineering from more companies than I'd care to list. Plus, the beer is awesome. I live in a German-centric city in Canada, and I have to say that Oktoberfest is my new favorite holiday, far surpassing Christmas and New Years etc.

So, where would you choose to live if you had a 'do-over'?

The End is Nigh?

The end is nigh. In case you didn't already hear, last week on New Years Eve, thousands of blackbirds fell dead for no explainable reason in Arkansas. In addition, there were thousands of other unrelated unexplainable bird deaths in Italy, Louisiana, Kentucky, and Sweeden. In adition, 2 million fish washed up dead for again no explainable reason in Maryland's Chesapeake Bay in the U.S.

With other fish deaths also reported in Brazil, New Zealand and Arkansas -- approximately 100 miles from the bird incident. 40,000 crabs washed up on England beaches in the past few days, as well.

All these events are so far unexplained (or attempted to be covered up with BS reasoning)... what's causing this? Nobody knows.

This is it guys. Buy your guns and ready your bunkers, the end is coming.

What will you guys do in the last year of your life?

Hey guys,

Well in line with my other recommendations for good TV shows for people to watch... this is one of them. I have revisted it after quite a while and I actually like the show a lot more this time around. It's a sci-fi/western... an interesting combination but it actually works very well.

Unfortunately this is one of the shows that just 'went away'... the network it was playing on had a choice of one sci-fi show, and it was between Firefly and Buffy... and Buffy won. Which I think sucks, but eh what are you going to do.

Anyways, if you're interested in action, comedy and a host of 'anti-hero' type characters, this is the show for you. Watch the first season and then there's a movie to top it off. Hope you guys like it as much as I did.

Tron Legacy

I know I'm well behind on this review, but I was super busy with the holidays. I had mentioned it a while back, and I was really excited to go see it. Well, this past weekend I did... and I have to say I wasn't disappointed in the slightest and I was actually impressed. Everything I had hoped they would include, they did... and then some. The visuals were awesome... (2D was great, and the 3D effects weren't overused but instead there to amplify the already awesome visuals). The sound was great... (soundtrack was done by Daft Punk, and I love their music... so that was sweet) and the story (despite being a remake) was done well.

The characters were awesome. The main actor (Garrett Hedlund) did a good performance as Sam, but in the end I think he was overshadowed by the pure awesomeness that is Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn (Big Lebowski) and the pure hotness of Olivia Wilde as Quorra (not to be confused with Olivia Munn... no thanks)

Add it all up and you've got yourself a solid movie, but add in the fact that's it's TRON and you've got an amazing movie. Loved it. I give it a 7/10. Go see this in theater, in 3D, don't wait for DvD.

Nerd Alert

Happy New Year!

Well apparently the crazy zealots that created 'Respect and Obey Authority' removed their video probably due to extreme opposition. Well, since not all of you got to watch it, here's another video... except this one you shouldn't rage... it's pretty amazing. For any of you Starcraft fans you'll get it right away, for everyone else... it's still awesome.
