OTT is Dead. OTT Remains Dead.

I started reading the Ian Fleming (and later the John Gardner) books way back in 5th grade. There really isn't anything that salacious in them. Not by today's standards.

I thought Casino Royale was alright, but nothing great. I didn't see the next two. I mean to see the latest, though, because everybody raves about it.

Thunderball was best. Roger Moore bond had great bad guys and Bond Girls. I think the campiness is what made it.
Sharks in pools, crazy gadgets and women are what make the bond movies. The main gadget in skyfall is a micro radio. outta here with that shit. "What did you expect? An exploading pen?" Bet you the writers were high fiving themselves after that one.

Seems as though I have most of them.

I have several issues with the whole process.
1. The internet price on the dealer's web page never matches what the price in the show room is. (You
get there and they quote you the MSRP and then start taking rebates off of that).
2. Going to the Nissan page I can "build" a basic model S+ 2013 Nissan Versa for $14,5 (including delivery charge). Does that car exist anywhere? No, all the ones at the dealers have the extras like lighted trim and what not already included.
3. Our credit union is only offering us a 5% (will match 2.5%) interest rate for the loan. The dealers might give us a 0.9 or 1.x% rate, but who knows if we qualify and what hidden strings are attached.

Personally I don't mind the Dual Shock design but I wish they would have one model that swaps the D-Pad and Left Thumbstick and one that doesn't. I like the D-Pad placement for 2D games over the 360 but for 3D games, I prefer the 360 controller.
The more I hear about the new Xbox the less I want it. If I end up buying a next gen console, I think I am going to get that quadruple. They actually seem to have their shit together. I do wish they would make a decent controller and ditch the dual shock design, but I don't see them ever ditching it.

Have we ever gone 24 hours without a post before? This just reinforces my anti-social tendencies.
I'm sure that must be some kind of record for the OTT.
Hello, Dead OTT!

Nobody reads my twitter either. Not even the Spambots.
Spambots love my twitter for some reason. I don't really tweet anything worthwhile, so they must be dull spambots.

Vic Mackey's wife may be the most annoying female character in TV history, even surpassing Tara from Sons of Anarchy. I can't decide if I dislike the actress or if it's just the way they wrote for her. I get it. She's Shawn Ryan's wife, so he had to give her a part, but holy shit. At times, I found myself hoping the Armenians actually would get to her and put a bullet in her head.
I bought the DLC for Assassin's Creed II the other day. I don't think it was worth it. The first one was fun but over pretty quick, and the second doesn't seem much fun so far. I should've kept my $11, but the DLC was the only way to get the preorder secret locations, which you need to get 100% completion.
I was looking at the AC: Brotherhood CE on Amazon last week, but the cheapest was $70. When I checked on there last night, FYE had put some up for $50. After using some leftover credit, I got it for around $40. I may start that next if I don't start Arkham Asylum first.

I remember reading when the finale was coming about that they were going in a direction that was the complete opposite of The Sopranos. Everything down to the suit that Vic wears at the end is absolutely perfect.
Yeah, I read an interview last night with Ryan that I guess was conducted right after the finale aired. He mentioned not wanting to be like The Sopranos. One of the questions asked him where he saw some of the characters awhile after the events of the finale. The one that stood out to me was the idea that Ronnie would've joined up with the white supremacists to stay alive in prison.

Pretty nice car, and I'm glad we really didnt have to pay extra for all the options we got. (Back up camera, power folding rear view mirrors, etc.)
We now own 2 Kia's. I guess that's our brand.

It seems like I'm going to have to play through Lego Lord of the Rings once, and then back again in free play with all the characters to unlock everything. (Don't quite seem to have the right characters to unlock as you go, like in some previous lego games)
There's no hub world in this lego game either.
Maybe i'll just stick to the story and not worry about all the collectibles.

Such lovely, stormy weather here in Indiana!
