Ghosts of Christmas Past

Curse work!!! Ever since I exited college and entered the nine-to-five, these holiday seasons seem to whisk by without much chance to really enjoy them. Yes, the season is peppered with an assortment of holiday parties and gatherings where you get to make merry with an assortment of friends and neighbors and take stabs at…

Kerryookie

  TomKat’s hitched. I’ve lost track of Bennifers One through Nine. And please, spare me your tales of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – that Brangelina is soooooooo last year. Nope – we’re on the cusp of a new year and as we bid adieu to 2006 and usher in 2007 – along comes our…

Mii Match 3 – Playoff Round – Jason v. Sean

Updated with results at 9:05 p.m. EST – See Below As I posted earlier today, Round 3 saw a tie with Jason and Sean each correctly identifying the 5 celebrity Miis. Joe nailed 4 out of 5 – but was doomed by his bizarre infatuation with post-prison Martha. For this playoff round – Jason and…

Mii Match – Round 3

Well. Here comes the last Mii Match before the holidays. After this round, I need time to craft some more Miis and quite possibly actually get around to playing a game or two on this thing. First a recap. Round 1 went squarely to Sean. Round 2 ended in a draw between Joe and Jason…

Mii Match – Round 2 – The Results

Well, I decided to close out Round 2 a bit early in light of the fact that we have heard from the usual suspects and I haven’t received any additional submissions to date. Rather than keep this entry out there an additional day, I figured I’d post the results today. Plus, I have a whole…

Mii Match – Round 2

As I posted yesterday, Sean was the big winner in the Mii Match – correctly matching 4 out of 5 Miis to their real-life counterparts. I figured I should strike while the iron is hot (read: post some more Miis before I hit my fairly low creative wall) and launch Round II of the Mii…

Mii Match – Round 1 Results

In my last post, I started a little contest to see if my readers could match the Miis I made on my Wii with their real life celebrity or acquaintance counterpart (this is rapidly becoming the craziest sentence I’ve ever written). A few of you responded (enough for me to crown a winner). Sean wins…

The Big Wiibowski

Sure, the Wii can’t pump 1.21 jigawatts of power like its big brothers, but can the XBox 360 and PS2 serve up a faithful rendition of The Big Lebowski – starring the Wii’s own brand of avatars – the Miis? Pictured above is John Goodman’s Walter – the take no prisoners Vietnam veteran champion bowler. By artfully crafting some Miis…
