…..I gotta get around to watching that movie, though…
|1) Cut a hole in the box
2) Put a PS3 & 360 in the box
3) Then you turn on the box…..
I personally own about 20 video game systems and over 500 games in my collection. Whenever I travel, I typically bring my PSP and my DSlite, but if I’m going somewhere where there’s going to be a television, I’m going to bring along a gaming console, and it’s usually between the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. Often, this decision takes about a day or so so I can think about what games I’m currently playing on what system, and the system with the most currently played games ends up winning that decision, but I believe that it is safe to say that this gamer may not have similar first-world issues like mine in the near future.

Above is the final 8:30 minutes of the “I Quit” Steel Cage Match at NWA Starrcade 1985 between Tully Blanchard (Champion; accompanied by Baby Doll) and Magnum T.A. (Challenger) for the NWA United States Heavyweight Championship. This match (in its entirety, anyway) embodies my opinions of the best types of wrestling matches: it depended more on telling the story of the match to the audience through the flow of the match, rather than depend on a series of disjointed short spots like most wrestling matches today do.

Anyways, here we have a TV, an iPad, and an iPhone, all of them stacked up “on top of” each other—you know, kind of like in the dreams in “Inception.” This pic brings back memories when nearly everyone I came across who saw the movie, as we all attempted to make sense of the whole thing. As far as I’m concerned, this combo of devices illustrates an almost perfect example of Inception. Read the rest of this entry

With the economy still slowly recovering and as people struggle with finances to pay their bills and their debts, many people are looking into and developing strategies on how to better save money. For example, many people have been figuring out how to better budget their money for their utility bills (like water and power), because not too many things suck more than receiving that expensive utility bill seemingly out of nowhere.

Okay everyone, say it with me:
Without a doubt, “Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island” for the Super Nintendo ranks as one of my favorite games of all time. The game is a prequel to the Super Mario series, in which players control various Yoshi dinosaurs rather than the usual hero himself, Mario, who appears as a helpless infant in need of Yoshi’s protection. From the graphics that resemble as if they had been drawn with crayons and felt-pens, making them more cartoonish, to the familiarity of Mario games with an added egg-throwing mechanic, it’s an absolute joy to play time and time again.

Upon initially seeing this picture below, the first thought that came to mind was:
This is the “Tubohotel,” located in Tepoztlan, Morelos, Mexico, which is less than an hour away from Mexico City. The hotel was designed by T3arc, whose goal was to swiftly build a hotel at a low cost, and it is an affordable hotel that utilizes recycled concrete tubing for the rooms, which allows the rooms to showcase some amazing views of the area’s landscape and natural features. The Tubohotel is said to have been inspired by architect Andreas Strauss’ Das ParkHotel. In contrast, the Tubohotel’s concrete modules have included some glass to provide better panoramic views for the guests (mainly of the local mountain range, Sierra del Tepozteco). Legend has it that Tepoztlan (the site of the Tubohotel) is the birthplace of Quetzalcoatl, Mexico’s ancient feathered serpent god. Read the rest of this entry
|IT’S A CELEBRATION!!!!|
After the May 4th, 2011 announcement (“May the Forth be with you;” get it?), I have been looking forward to this release in possibly the worst way. Finally, I picked it up today at my closest Wal-Mart (one of the last two available before they had to restock), and took some pictures to serve as a walkthrough or unboxing. Enjoy!
**by the way, the movies look AWESOME; I’m watching “Ep. 4: A New Hope” right now** Read the rest of this entry
I got my eye on “Spider-Man,” “The Flash,” “The Punisher,” “X-Men,” and countless others.
But yeah, more superheroes tees are needed….
|Yes! Yes!! YESSSSS!!! This Must Happen MORE!!!|
Now, THIS is a definite entry into my “PROS” columns on my personal list for becoming a future adopter of a 3D television! Actually, this may be the case for anyone who already wears glasses on an everyday basis (like myself); and hates having to wear those bulky glasses to watch any type of three-dimensional content; and hates having to charge the stupid glasses constantly. See, those are some of my “CONS;” those, and the price of 3DTV’s.
Above is the creation of Garnet Hertz (with a little help by SEGA; I would assume), who, along with his UC-Irvine colleagues, developed this video game concept car that combines a car-shaped arcade game cabinet with a real world electric vehicle. In a nutshell, Hertz and his team produced an OutRun arcade video game system that actually drives. I’m serious; this is a driving videogame, in which the actual game cabinet itself ACTUALLY DRIVES (I know, right?!?)!!! Read the rest of this entry
In New York City, a golden phoenix is rising out of the ashes and rubble of Ground Zero. It is……..a brand, spanking-new skyscraper. The new One World Trade Center Complex (1WTC) is on the way to being the most environmentally and technologically advanced structure ever attempted at this scale. Read the rest of this entry
