FITNA Video Shows Islamic Appeasement Means NO MORE FREE SPEECH

FITNA Video Shows Islamic Appeasement Means NO MORE FREE SPEECH

As an American I love Europe. I love Europe because they’re on point. They’re on the cutting edge of “Oh crap, our land is filled with Muslim extremists!” They’re a sadistic social experiment that gives us in the States an idea of what will happen to us if when we let it. So the Dutch [...]

WordPress 2.5 Released!

WordPress 2.5 Released!

WordPress 2.5 has been officially released! Rejoice, oh blogging masses! As I stated in an earlier post (while alpha-testing the software) this is a major software upgrade with a gazillion improvements. As with any massive change there will be some broken WordPress themes and plugins to fix… but the sunshine on the horizon is nearly [...]

1&1 Internet Hosting = Colossal Suckfest (updated)

1&1 Internet Hosting = Colossal Suckfest (updated)

1&1 sucks. I used to use (until 17 minutes ago) 1&1 Internet Hosting for all my websites, including this blog. Now, I’ve had problems with them frequently, but the past 3 days have been beyond anything readily comparable. Over the weekend the server that “hosts” my web content was up… then down… then up… then [...]

WordPress 2.5 (alpha testing)

WordPress 2.5 (alpha testing)

WordPress, the foremost blogging system used on the internet today, has just released their version 2.5 for alpha testers a couple days ago. I have been testing it… and I have to say that I am impressed. I love WordPress. I use it for several websites (including the one you’re reading and my personal site). [...]

Eliot Spitzer Goes Bye-bye

Eliot Spitzer Goes Bye-bye

Eliot Spitzer resigned his post as Governor of New York State in the wake allegations surrounding his involvement in a prostitution ring. [wikipedia - may be graphic] [AP] This scandal has really rocked New York politics, and living in Albany it’s all we’ve heard on the news this week. Here’s the short version: Spitzer serves [...]

Nitro Racers

Nitro Racers

Here’s a great little racing game called Nitro Racers. You choose your car, track, and what type of race you want… and you’re off. You can choose weaker cars when you think you’re good enough to win with them. This game comes from the folks at GameTeam.com, a beautiful site with loads of Flash goodness, [...]

Fish

Fish

This is one of those starkly simple yet insanely addictive Flash games. It is called Fish and is from the folks over at Albino Blacksheep (don’t forget to head over there). Similarly to the Squares2 game, you have to move you character to avoid “bad” things and hit “good” things. In this game you are [...]

Wasted Sky

Wasted Sky

Here’s a great side-shooter called Wasted Sky, from those crazy guys at NewGrounds.com (a treasure trove of Flash goodness – so make sure to head over and show them some love). Wasted Sky is flashy, fast, and crazy… a space shooter that is great for those whose patience doesn’t last more than a minute.

Walk the Line

Walk the Line

So while I was blogging about musical movies (like Once) I thought I’d point out another great flick I saw recently… Walk the Line. This movie revolved around the life story of Johnny Cash and starred Joaquin Phoenix (nominated for the 2005 Academy Award as Best Actor) as Cash and Reese Witherspoon(nominated and won the [...]

Once

Once

I can get easily bored with movies. So much cliché… predictability… canned Hollywood repetition. And – being a musician – I am particularly critical of music-centered stories. That being said… I was delightfully surprised by Once. I think the movie is one of the best independent flicks I’ve seen. I watched it with my wife [...]
