Wow. This is just TOO easy…
Anyway, Frank Gehry inaugurated his first building in Australia, with the formal opening of the Dr. Chau Chak Wing Building at the University of Technology in Sydney (or the UTS, as all the kids call it). As his first in the country (and as with nearly ANY Gehry building), the building has provided a chance for a WHOLE NEW part of the world to offer criticism on the polarizing style of the world’s most well-known love-him-or-hate-him architect. At least the media attention has given us some entertaining responses, both positive and negative. After the break, we round up some of the most amusing.

For the past few weeks, I have enjoyed the crap out of the newest entry in the popular Call of Duty video game series, Call of Duty: Black Ops II. This is the first time I ever purchased a Call of Duty game on its initial date of release and played consistently online (PSN: KINGof210), as I typically buy some of the games used 1-2 years after its launch and concentrate on the single-player campaign, as I do not buy the newest version of CoD year-after-year (I only do that with the WWE games; I R Hyp-Oh-Crit, sorta).
