Wyy?!?!

Nintendo’s conference is this morning – and this news is about a week old – but worth mentioning. The big N recently announced a name change for its new system (due this fall). The console formerly known as Revolution has been renamed Wii. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover! What’s in a name? I…

Sony – PS3

Last night, Sony kicked off the conference by showcasing the PS3. Of all the news, the price tag had to be the biggest bombshell. As industry analysts have speculated for months, the system will launch with a two-tiered pricing structure: $499 for a 20gb HD Model – $599 for a 60gb HD. Between the 6-month delay,…

E3

This week, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (or E3), is being held in Los Angeles. Running from May 10 – 12th, this annual convention is the spot where all the hot new video games are announced. The big news comes early in the week as the big three – Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony – hold pre-show…

Weekend in the Styx

We’re back. As I mentioned on Friday, in Colin’s birthday post, Andi and I decided to take the kids north to New Hampshire for a little weekend R & R in honor of our little big man. Our friends, Denise and Mark, have a condo in Thornton, NH (in the Waterville Valley area) with an amazing…

Cinco de Mayo Nino

Happy birthday, Colin. Today is Colin’s third birthday. For those of you short the Advanced Math degree, I’ve done a little rudimentary arithmetic for you. Take 2006 – subtract the three – carry the one – divide by the coefficient of x and that means he was born sometime around May 5, 782 A.D. Great… maybe…

Lost – Two for the Road

Well, here we are, May sweeps. It’s a bittersweet time. On the one hand, we get four to five solid eps in a row with no interruption and each show typically pulls out its big guns to close the season/series out in some grand, climactic fashion. On the minus side, 5 weeks from now and we’re stuck…

Lost – S.O.S.

This recap is a little late. I apologize but work has preyed upon my brain and I’ve run behind on a number of these. I’m publishing this observation (the ep originally aired three weeks ago) and one on last night’s installment – as well as a couple 24 recaps and I will be fully caught…

24 Day 5 2:00 – 3:00 a.m.

  This was one of those quieter weeks – granted in the land of 24, a quiet week involves Jack subduing an air marshal, hijacking an airliner and juryrigging the hydraulics to play a little game of Turbulent Chicken with the pilot. So – it was no Gilmore Girls – but we did take a…

24 Day 5 1:00 – 2:00 a.m.

  Nostradamus. George Stephanopolous. Mel Kiper. As far as the fine art of prognostication goes, they’re bush league when compared to the great geyser of plot development Mook is able to divine on a weekly basis. He’s already pegged Logan as the Big Bad and called out Evelyn, the First Lady’s aide, as a character…

24 Day 5 12:00 – 1:00 a.m.

The clock reads midnight and if my tentative grasp on temporal matters holds water, we still have seven hours before the clock strikes 24. With Big Bad Bierko nabbed and the President fingered as the true Man Behind The Curtain, how will they ever fill the following seven hours. Either Bauer is planning on kickstarting…
