Down Time

Posted in General on November 22, 2008 by B33

I suppose it goes without saying that I’ve been rather busy, as of lately. While it’d be nice to regularly update this journal, sticking to such a schedule would deter the quality of the said entries and the other various aspects of life I currently have ahead of me. I am nearing the end of the particular semester I’ve been attending to for the past few months. One last essential “cram” to the finish amongst the various other side projects I also tend to linger upon from time to time. Suppose I’ll present a brief of overview of what I’ve been pre-occupying the little free time I have with…

I was able to attend a screening of Zack and Miri Make a Porno on opening day. A full review detailing my thoughts on the film will be published in due time. For now, I will simply say that I was very impressed with the final cut of the feature and look forward to my next viewing of it. As far as gaming is concerned, picked up LittleBigPlanet and Resistance 2 and I am enjoying both titles immensely. I’ve also been playing through Half-Life, as it was marked down substantially in honor of the title’s ten year anniversary. The third Futurama film entitled “Bender’s Game” recently hit store shelves and is fairly enjoyable. Plenty of laughs to be had with a rather engaging setting and plotline. The pacing has been improved, although it’s not without it’s flaws…

With that, I’ll depart with a few exceprts of news circulating around the web. Aint it Cool News recently sat down with Spike Jonze in a rather extensive interview regarding his adaption of the novel “Where the Wild Things Are,” The PlayStation 3 recently hit it’s second year anniversary, The trailer to the final Futurama film entitled “Into the Wild Green Yonder”  has hit the internet, The Ghostbusters are back, The squid is out,  and the end of a hero?
