In the past 4 years, I have become disillusioned of cable/satellite television subscriptions (though we have DirecTV at the house), and I have discovered five things about my television habits:
GO SONIC, IT’S YA BURFF-DAY!!! GO SON……………….uh………….yeah….anyway…
It was 20 years ago today (June 23rd, 1991) that the original “Sonic the Hedgehog” game was released by Sega for the Genesis (or Mega Drive; depending on what country you live in) console in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Sega is already celebrating by releasing the Sonic 20th Anniversary Bundle for download for the PlayStation 3, along with the 20-day-only temporary download of the demo for the new game, Sonic Generations.
For some background, “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels was in is first reign as WWF Champion after winning the title in a fantastic Iron Man Match at WrestleMania XII from Bret Hart (which I will DEFINITELY discuss at a later point and time). The night after WrestleMania XII, Mankind (Mick Foley) debuted in the WWF, and after feuding with The Undertaker and eventually winning the managerial services of Paul Bearer (Undertaker’s manager), he would win the number one contendership for the WWF Championship at the Mind Games pay-per-view event.
There’s going to be a new video game based on H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds?!”
And it’s going to be based on the original novel’s setting AND the 1953 movie’s time period?!
So it’s NOT based on the 2005 Tom Cruise version?!? Praise the Lord!!!
ANNNNNND it will be narrated by Captain Jean-Luc Picard, a.k.a. Professor Charles Xavier, a.k.a. MacBeth, a.k.a. “American Dad’s” Avery Bullock himself?! SIGN ME UP!!!!
I suppose that after the natatorium used in China for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, the whole “design-your-arena-to-look-inflatable” thing is taking off pretty well with Olympic facilities. Also, I’m not sure if there are bags or bins large enough to stuff this baby into for recyclables pick-up day during the week. Hmmm…
Coming from a childhood were I was regularly ridiculed for having a severe stuttering problem and asthema (yeah, kids are cruel), as well as having an enthusiastic interest in many thing related to science, technology, history, art, and various things that were not common trends or deemed “popular” or “in” at the time, I didn’t become comfortable in my own skin until my junior year of high school, and didn’t come into the realization and self-proclamation of being a “nerd” until I was in graduate school.
