NIN releases 400gb of free HD concert footage via torrents!

A couple months ago Trent Reznor publicly sounded off about the difficulties he faced with his old record company that prevented him from filming a 3D concert film. Now he's inviting fans to make their own DVD by offering over 400gb of raw HD concert footage free via NIN's own torrent tracker.

Why World of Warcraft is Evil.

After a longstanding break from the trappings of this massive multi-online player role playing game, I feel the echo of fast flying fireballs, swift strokes of sharpened claws and the "swat swat" of feathered mythical mount wings calling me from the depths of the Molten Core. Even though this game is filled with epic adventures of massive time wasting properties, I still am drawn to the alternative of a wasted Saturday afternoon of watching Barefoot Contessa on the food network channel.

I think the ultimate reason I stopped playing in the first place was because the addictive drama-induced faux reality that is running a 150+ member guild was suddenly gone, and the game just didn't have the same appeal to me anymore. Whilst being a guild master had it's moments of wanting to rip out your hair and reach through your headset to kill the annoying "stewiegryphons" of the game, it still was a lot of fun to be in charge of a group with the same interests and goals. Kind of like running a football team, minus the football.

With Blizzard's inevitable release of new patches, new content and a new level cap, the idea of restarting a new character wants to make me punch bunnies, but I do miss the social outlet that an MMORPG provides. Especially one where you've grown to become attached to acquintances that mean much more that a big furry bear, or a staff-totin' robed priest that likes to slap you on the ass.

I do miss playing with my friends a great deal. It's truly amazing how meeting some animated cartoon figures fighting a big fish that spouts water to kill you can turn into meeting some of the greatest people I've ever considered friends. Besides, who else can you count on to not answer their phones at 3:00A.M. to discuss the evil that is Journey.

See you in game.

What happened to Saturday Morning Cartoons?

Seriously, I remember the good ole' days of waking up and watching Looney Toons, Transformers, Heman, She-rah, Thundercats, Tom & Jerry, maybe even some Ninja Turtles.

It's been a long time since I've actually been awake to watch Saturday morning cartoons, but now with the new sleep schedule, it's unavoidable that I can't sleep in on the weekends and I'm seriously disappointed with the crap of cartoons that it's on. When did Saturday morning cartoons go Japanese anime? Where in the hell have I been? My kids know what each show is, and I guess it's just their generation, but man is it crap. I guess it's part of the anime craze that a lot of people are into, that I just don't see the point of. Guess it's just not my style.

I think I'll go back to bed and take my Cringer/Battle cat action figure with me.

NIN Dazzles With Lasers, LEDs and Stealth Screens

Nine Inch Nails have pulled out all the stops for their high-tech new tour, creating a groundbreaking, fully interactive visual display that is as much a part of the show as the band's instruments. Reviews have called it everything from a "vision of splendor" to "the pinnacle of video art."

Getting into the swing of things...

Haven't blogged because I've been adjusting to the new work schedule, and when I do get home from putting in an eight hour day, I'm pretty exhausted. So, a quick update for you active blog readers. So far, work is fantastic! For the first time in about 6 years, I actually have looked forward to going to work in the morning. I feel really renewed, and feel excited to learn another focus of law, and stepping outside of my comfort zone. I'm catching on pretty quick and learning a lot more about unemployment law. It's really interesting to read stories about why/how people get fired. One of these days I'll have to relate some stories, but for now, it's Friday, Greg and I are in jammy, sit by the fireplace with a glass of wine kind of mode, so I'm gonna call it good for the day. Cheers!

The new money paying thingie....

I LOVE MY JOB! The last two days have invigorated me with new purpose and hope. I really think I found the perfect fit. For some reason Greg is mad at me tonight and has decided to pursue the "silent treatment" method. Normally, I would be concerned, but whatever I did, or whatever has his knickers in a bunch isn't going to effect the figurative "happy pill" I've digested. Life is good.
