Got the movie Pi: Faith in Chaos from Netflix over the weekend, because once in a while I like to watch a movie that stretches my brain beyond the three dimensions it usually thinks in. It's by acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky, whose The Fountain I also checked out just recently. The movies are not for … Continue reading Pi: Faith in Chaos, but I like Bananna Cream, Better
I swear, I used to have a blog around here somewhere. Probably lost under all this Facebook, Twitter, and various other social media stuff. I actually meant to update it recently, being as it was my birthday, and I was on vacation, and I had some really deep insights into the meaning of life and … Continue reading Did Anyone See a Blog Around Here?

I really liked the new Star Trek movie. I had actually written the whole franchise off a few years ago, after Enterprise once again disappointed me with how unlike the original series it was, and even how dark and adolescent it was.

Pretty kewl video about the game, and I … Continue reading “Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings” for the Wii – Trust Me…
When I first rode "Toy Story Midway Mania" a few months ago, I was really underwhelmed. I mean, it's a good ride, don't get me wrong, but I didn't get off going, "Wowee zowee! That was something I've never seen before!" You know that feeling -- when you step off say, "Mission:Space" at Epcot and … Continue reading Disney to Release “Toy Story Midway Mania” as Wii Game, No Need To Go To Disney Anymore
If I were feeling inspired to sit down and write a post about gaming right now, instead of working out and then vegging out to destress from a very busy week. Jeff Green on why he says he sucks at gaming.
Yeah, I know...you read the title and said "Orlando has a History Center?" Yes, indeed it does. The Orlando History Center is nestled downtown in a historic old courthouse building and is a gem of a find for a local sick of roller coasters and dacing hippos. From Orlando History Center Natasha and I went … Continue reading Henson Exhibit at the Orlando History Center
