Trent Reznor, everyone’s favorite NINny, is auctioning off a whole mess of crap on eBay. Check it out, especially if you’re looking to buy audio equipment. (Cross, I’m looking at you here.)
As you’ll notice, I’ve divided my Linkpad thing, which is arguably one of the more popular things on my site, and split it into two, so that the news articles stay warm on one side, and the clever links stay crispy and cool on the right side. I have no life, I know.
First off, Katie came up with the idea today for us to have a sort of joint-diary so that people can read about our trials and tribulations as being the unique couple we are. The link is up in the header for your clicking convenience. Expect plenty of posts there over the next year, especially this summer. Also, Ryan “Leave Me Alone” Short gave me the scoop on how the CCC voting went; amazingly (and much to the chagrin of most of my friends), it went BB King, Bela Fleck, Underworld. We’re hopefully going to do all three shows. I’ll keep you posted.
today at CCC:
Trey Anastasio, that guy from Phish – $100k
Bela Fleck and the Flecktones – $15k
BB King – $45k
Paul Oakenfold – $40k
Fatboy Slim, Basement Jaxx, and someone else – $70k
Underworld – $50k
A Perfect Circle – $60k
Henry Bloom is my new favorite guy.
Time only flies when you’re on break. And here we are again, the day
before classes begin once more, ready to fight the good fight in the
great war against professors, other students, and that great evil known
as the GPA.
As I’m now back to school, my
new schedule is up, and the
webcam is back to running at a regular rate.
CCC begins this week as usual, with Exec Board Monday at 5, and the
General Meeting Thursday at 5. If you’re interested and want more info,
for the love of god, ask me. We always need more people to work the
And on a note that I guess is worth mentioning, the Royal Rumble is
tonight, which is always a moderately entertaining pay per view, if for
nothing more than the hour long Rumble match itself. Of course, there’s
also going to be a very swank ladder match between Chris Jericho and
Chris Benoit, two of the finest Canadian wrestlers in the world. You are
invited to tune in at home, or you could probably come watch over at 5M.
Granted, I don’t know how many hits I do a day, so probably no one is
reading my page today. I’m writing blind. Is anybody out there? eh, who
cares, I’ll keep writing.
I should mark this day in the calendar. First, there’s the fact that I’ve actually published a worthwhile interview. This makes me feel like a real journalist. Second, there’s this quicktime movie of my boss at Freeverse, Ian, doing an interview with Corey Tamas of MacGamer. What’s odd is that Corey, who loves me (in a manly sort of way), brings me up. This seems to catch Ian completely off guard, and he has to piece together something about me. This makes me embarassed and blushing. Finally, I decided on a whim to check the stats for the artists I take care of on MP3.com. Jared’s page did something I never eeeeeever expected – it became one of those culty “forward this to your friends” thing for a couple of days, as Feliz Navidad did enough business to earn us $48. Add in the other $10 or so we’ve earned in other months (May, and this month), and that’s enough to cut us a check. What else is going to happen today? Honestly. Update: Alright, now I know – Inside Mac Games posted an interview with Brian Burke of NVIDIA as well. I think mine is better (big shock). Anything ELSE wacky going to happen today?
It’s survival of the fittest day on my web page, and since I have three virtually dead sections, I’m retiring them. They are: The Forums – used for about half a day. Reviews – rarely updated. FAQ – superceeded by the Bio page. The content on the reviews page will be back in some form eventually. But this certainly does cut down on my perceived content, no?
After pawing through the pictures in our Utterercom expo photo section,
I whipped up some wallpaper, throwing together a bunch of crazy photos
of crazy people I know.
If you need an answer key to figure out who is who,
available as well.
It’s Thursday, and quite honestly, not a whole hell of a lot is going on. Which makes it a perfect time to update. Rah rah rah. First off, as was to be expected, the 2 weeks with Kate were wonderful. We did indeed have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Among all the other stuff I got, I also did pick up the fated Gameboy Color and two Pokemon games (Gold, and Puzzle Challenge). Capsule reviews: Gold is an enjoyable traditional-type RPG. I’m very into how the time of day and the day of the week actually do affect the game – certain actions can only be done on Fridays, various Pokemon are only seen at night or in the morning. It’s very involving. Puzzle Challenge is a great, great puzzle game, which is the first puzzle game to have enough depth that I haven’t mastered it in the first 3 days. I’m decent, but nowhere near great. Speaking of reviews – I’ve decided that I failed miserably at doing product reviews. Most of my rambling just ends up in the news anyhow. But, people like my concert recaps, and various special things like that. So – the reviews section is going, but something remotely similar will be in its place. Watch for that soon. MacWorld San Francisco is this week, and unfortunately, I am not there. Apple rolled out some great new hardware, and thank GOD NVIDIA is now providing graphics cards. I was getting worried. Also, the new laptops are swank as all hell. As to be expected, we Bad Boys of Mac Gaming over at Utterercom Media are covering the show like nobody’s business. I’ve posted a full Keynote recap over there, plus we’ve got all sorts of keen PR. We’ve been getting a lot of praise, to the point where Brian Burke, Senior PR Manager for NVIDIA, emailed me offering to do an interview for the site (I accepted, should be published in the next few days). So today, I can finally call myself a journalist and not snicker about it. Life is fairly dull here in Ithaca, but school resumes on the 22nd, so the party will be on soon enough. Till then.
