      The first mention of RvBTX was...in my journal? O.o

      "I'm having another great year this year, and really, this is all turning out to be better than last year. I'm hoping it continues this trend for years to come.

      RvBTX (aka A-Kon)...BE THERE."

      That's kinda funny. lol

      Hmm...

      A lot of people didn't like the MS PC. I thought it was alright. The Clancy Kinect stuff drew a pretty receptive response, but I wasn't too thrilled about it (The physical navigation is GREAT, but the game still looks like crap to me). I love what they're doing with Kinect, however it just felt like they were pushing it too much. Overall, though, this was the best of the day, imo, with the exception of:

      EA. EA did very well today. Battlefield 3 looks just...incredible. The Old Republic was insanely disappointing. A 4 minute trailer that was basically nothing more than other trailers mashed together, with a bit of footage from the Cinematic Game Intro (which was posted HERE if you haven't seen it yet). Honestly, they should have just announced pre-conference that they would have nothing regarding TOR this year and quietly let it sit back. That would've been more of a statement, imo, that it's being worked on. Sports games look solid, of course. The Madden thing was pretty cool. Mass Effect 3, of course, is definitely a great-looking title.

      Sony...blew it. Hard. I was actually hopeful for them. The PSN apology was great, and they handled that very well. Their push of 3D is just...too much. I'm not much INTO 3D, though, although that has a lot to do with the fact that I have a slight lazy eye, and thus can't actually experience the little glasses-effect. The bundle they have, though, seems like a GREAT deal. Good 3D push to be sure.

      Speaking of great deals, they did win me over on one thing. The Vita's AT&T exclusivity really blew my mind. That was just...stupid. When they said that, I went from "I want one" to "Nevermind.", that is, until they announced the pricepoint. $299 for the 3G model (with a 2 year contract I'd almost guess), and $250 for the WiFi. They NAILED the pricepoint. Bottom line, I still want one. Bravo, Sony.

      One glaring omission from my Microsoft paragraph is the Halo 4 announcement. Bottom line: I'm not happy about it. Bungie wrapped the trilogy. Nicely. I was happy. There's something to be said about an IP that is laid to rest in the way that it was story-wise. I'm a huge fan of the Halo story, as it was told, and really...I don't see this as much more than a cash grab on Microsoft's part since they now own the IP. In the business sense, I totally understand and respect it. From the fan side...I'm not pleased.

      Did you know Jack is a freaking table hockey phenom? Yea, neither did I. O.o

      I was down on 6th Saturday night, and saw Joel tweet that they were hanging at Buffalo Billiards, so I headed that direction. Hung out with the RTXers (whom, btw, were an awesome group of folks. To be expected of course). Had a couple drinks and hung around. Good times.

      I swung down to the office on Sunday for the Immersion shooting, to see how RTX was going and take Alexis up to meet the staff. It's SO COOL seeing how well everything turned out. Was a lot of fun. Of course, fussy 3 year old meant I ended up having to bail early, but it really was awesome to catch a glimpse of how excited everyone was to be in Austin. :-D

      Smoking is a bad habit. I smoke, and I know this full and well.

      Then again, if you're pulled over, there's absolutely no reason you can't wait until the end of the damn traffic stop to have a smoke. I know, it's a hellacious addiction, but 5 extra minutes is alright when you're trying to get yourself out of a ticket.

      If you absolutely MUST smoke, ask the officer if it bothers him. Usually a smart move, and Police Officers like signs of respect like that.

      If the Officer says yes...DON'T light up a joint, moron.

      BUT, I'm a happy man. Congratulations Barack Obama.

      McCain's victory party - Small ballroom, and a children's choir.

      Obama's victory party - 65,000 people in a park, a million more watching.

      I go for celebrity in this one.

      Hey man, I was sent a video of a guy doing "number 50" in front of the Eiffel Tower, so I dropped that in. We'll get you to do a number next time I see you up at the office.

      Wow, that's really cool! Totally awesome of you to have mentioned my name as well, man, I really appreciate that :). I'm on pretty consistently as well.

      Best of luck to you with the auditions! If you get some samples out I'd really like to hear them, by the way. I think the only time I ever heard your voiceovers was for the old Toy Soldiers trailer, and all our mic qualities were a bit sub-par back then.

      Oh yeah, two legit top 5s going against each other will be watched by more people than anything else this weekend. Shit, we've been talking about going down to watch the game in a bar.

      For months now I've been openly expressing the opinion that oil needs to be a public utility. If our NATION threatened to stop buying oil at ridiculous prices OPEC would have to give in or lose billions. The oil companies won't stand up for us since they make a profit no matter what...

      A good way to help with our recession would be to lower gas prices, giving our citizens much more expendable income...

      11 years ago

      I haven't heard Cyanide yet, but I've heard mixed reviews about it. And yes, The Day That Never Comes is pretty badass. It was stuck in my head all day yesterday. And that's fucking sweet you got to see it when they premiered it. I still have yet to see a Metallica show. :( The last time they were in Chicago was when they were touring for St.Anger, and I couldn't go. It sucked.

      And I think My Apocalypse is a pretty good song, and defiantly one of the better songs they've put out in recent years, but I wouldn't go just yet to say one of their best ever.

    • Simmons2pntO

      11 years ago

      So what do you think of the new Metallica songs? I've been listening to them a bit and I do enjoy them......what do you think? At first I just thought they were meh, but after I listened to them a few times they've grown on me.

      I think the yellow ribbon/swastika image is misleading. I'm not saying that we're Nazis, I'm saying that we're manipulating a formerly pure symbol to sell war to the masses.

      Oh well, it's been up for a long-ass time now and I will not remove it.

      I'd love to, but because of WETA's involvement and the fact that there are no incentive programs that work here in Texas anymore, we're going to be filming in NZ.

      Also, I use it only in respect. Work sounds too hard and boring.

      I've got a memory leak, whenever I watch movies; eventually I will get a blue screen. It may be 4 seconds in or 2 hours in. Hell, if I watch a movie then go do some web browsing it'll do it eventually. It runs slow as dog shit all the time now too. I've got a video card maybe a couple steps below yours, 4 gigs of ram, 3.2ghz processor. Fucking top of the line shit.

      Long time no see, Spikey (if you remember me from back in the day of Toy Soldiers). I was browsing through your journals, and I was pretty surprised to see that you're somewhat interested in voiceovers. I've been working toward a professional career as a voiceover talent for quite some time myself, and it looks like I just might have an in sometime soon. Best of luck to you as well.
