Circle March 25th, ’cause Apple’s has a (likely) Streaming Service Announcement Coming…

Apple has sent out invitations to members of the press and other guests for a March 25 “special event,” featuring the words “it’s show time.” That’s interesting because Apple used the same tagline back in 2006 (hey kids, remember 2006?) for an event that led to the unveiling of the Apple TV device. The language and references points to a possible announcement of the company’s long-rumored streaming TV service that might be the event’s main focused.

The recently-opened National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan — inspired by the mass collections of banyan trees that are common in its locale — was designed by Dutch architecture firm Mecanoo.  This single building — which is also the largest performing arts center under a singular roof as well as Taiwan’s most significant cultural investment in a generation — covers a surface area of approximately 35 acres, a little over a quarter of the size of the surrounding 116-acre subtropical park in the area, acting as on of the country’s most culturally significant investment. The building features a 2,236-seat Opera House, a 1,981-seat Concert Hall, a 1,210-seat Playhouse, a 434-seat Recital Hall and an Outdoor Theater that connects the building to the park.

A First Look at a “Resident Evil” Stage Play…Yup.

First Look at the Resident Evil Stage Play

A few weeks ago, the Resident Evil stage play, called “Resident Evil: The Stage (or Biohazard: The Stage),” debuted in Japan (supposedly because fitty-‘leven movies aren’t enough) and ended this past Sunday, November 1st. According to Inside Games, the play’s story is ACTUALLY canon, as it takes place between Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. The play’s setting is a university in Australia, as the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA) arrives immediately after a bioterrorism incident as things get worse, beacuse — you know — Resident Evil.

The best thing about this option is, of all things, it’s really cheap to make.

YES to Home-Theater PC, NO to Cable/Satellite…

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:

1) I have scaled-back the amount of television I watch,
2) I spend more time playing video games and watching DVDs/Blu-rays than television,
3) Most of what I watch is available online anyway (via Hulu, Netflix, Revision3, Clicker, Crackle, Vudu, YouTube, network websites, etc.),
4) I can watch same-day-released movies for a single one-time rental (or purchase) fee on Vudu and Amazon VOD, or some older movies for free on Hulu,, and other legal sites (rather than paying the additional monthly subscriptions for premium movie channels from Cable/Satellite companies.
5) I no longer mind waiting from a few or many hours for a program to show up online, I just want to be able to watch the episode on-demand (WENT I WANT TO).
