This is pretty old, but then the subject is even older! It’s a fun look at the (mostly) 80s video games.
How many video games can you identify? There were sadly quite a few I didn’t recognize.

To steal a phrase from one of the judges, this show is “off the hook!”
I don’t like a lot of the “talent competitions” that are on TV. American Idol is little more than a chance to alternately berate people or contribute to creating a narcissistic personality. Yes, some of those people are very talented, but the show is really more about Simon Cowell and the other judges. America’s Got Talent I can tolerate a . . . → Read More: Review: The Sing-Off
You never know what’s going to make an impact on your kids. I don’t mean an immediate “wow!” impact, I’m talking about the long term stuff. It may not even be a big deal when it happens, and you might not know of its impact for years to come.
I wrote about one of those moments on the Coalition of Awesomeness recently.

Wow! I’m geeking out! This guy managed to mix computer laptop maintenance and an Ultraman-like tribute into a catchy, funny song! He even got a Queen tribute in!
Hats off to that dude. Way to go.
I wonder if he ever got that laptop back together.
Facebook is a place where absolutely nothing of importance happens. But you do get to see some funny, or at least interesting, posts from time to time. Here are some of the better ones I’ve seen recently:
(That was actually from fellow Coalition of Awesomeness member Dan’s blog, but I saw it through a post on Facebook, so it counts.)

This post is going to be like throwing spaghetti on the wall: I’m just gonna toss a lot of stuff up here and see what sticks. It worked for Oscar Madison (okay, that was linguini – work with me).
According to Slice-of-Sci-Fi…
The weekend closed out the books for the summer season and while ticket sales were up to $4.35 billion, the highest total ever for a summer season, overall attendance was down. Attendance this . . . → Read More: Throwing spaghetti on the wall
Today we’re having an installation of “What to do, What not to do” for percussionists.
What to do
Back in college I had the privilege of seeing a percussion group called Nexus perform. It was one of two moments in those years that I just had this goofy grin stuck on my face because the awesomeness just blew me away (the other was when the drummer from the Navy Jazz Band did his drum solo… . . . → Read More: Percussionists: Object lesson for today
Portal – The Game. Free Download until May 24th. | The #1 bookmarked Freeware site.
I love Portal. I first played it at my brother’s house a few years ago, and was completely into it, until my wife wanted me to do something silly like help with our daughter or go somewhere we’d planned on and were late getting to. It’s not like I’d been ignoring her and everyone else all day or something. It . . . → Read More: Portal – The Game. Free Download until May 24th (ps: the cake is a lie)
Nothing mind blowing today. This is pretty much going to be a stream of conciousness post. We’ll see if it’s even vaguely interesting by the time it’s over.
Just found Grooveshark. Loving it. On their About Us page, this was a quote one of their employees used:
“If it weren’t for physics and law enforcement, I would be unstoppable.” — Bukowski
For now, that’s my favorite quote.

[This post was scheduled to go up last week, and I just realized it never posted. Anyone know how that could happen with WordPress' schedule function? I'm not waiting another whole year to post this, so you'll have to put up with the slightly late seasonal message.]
The opening is a bit long in my opinion, but it gets good after the music gets going.
