Its snowing outside.....
And it is only supposed to get colder this week....
This isn't supposed to happen in Oregon, especially the Willamette Valley.
And three hours later it is sunny and not a cloud in the sky. *sigh* Oregon....
And half an hour after that: no blue sky and snow again!

DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE!
It is one of the most disgusting things ever printed on celluloid...
In the theater, when people were losing their self laughing, I could only think "Is this how far Western Civilization has fallen?" I cannot believe that people are calling this the "funniest film ever" or even "a comedic masterpiece." Albeit it is better than other 21st century comedies (namely Jackass) it still crosses the line from hilarious if repulsive.
There are few movies that can tread that line and survive. This one is one of them... NOT.
a generous 1.75/10
Maybe more later once I stop fuming at how I wasted money to see this crap.

So it looks like my video card, Sapphire ATI X1800XT, has bitten the dust.
I loaded up Oblivion today and as soon as I head out from a city. Dread strikes...
I get odd geometry drawing issues where polygons would have one vertex suddenly stretch off into the distance, and strange colored splotches appeared on more complex textured surfaces.
I think great..... this is it. I double check to make sure the fan is running on the video card. It is... And then seconds later the blue and green splotches appear more often....
Classic sign of a toasted video card, is it not?
Time to fire up newegg to get an RMA...

I started playing City of Villians after a few of my friends urged me to find an online game that we could all get together on. We decided on City of Villians. And don't any of you give more laud to WoW. Trust me... I've heard it all...
My villian alter-ego is called "The Nordic Sentinel." I decided to work out a little backstory for the guy:
"Appearing one night from the mists of the icy north, a powerful being broke forth a fury unheard of in modern history. The man cut a swath of destruction as he approached the centers of modern civilization. Small villages were wiped from the face of the earth, reclaimed by the frozen tundra. As he arrived at the cities, he seemed to be unstoppable. He called himself The Nordic Sentinel and he was here to herald the coming of Ragnarok, the end of the world."
Here is a quick screenshot:
I'm at level 8 now and can truly say that I really enjoy it. I play on the Infinity server so if anyone else is out there, give me a holler.
