Just got back from Batman. Basically... :shock:



Whoa, never heard of this. I may have to check it out. Anyone else planning on going?

And freeky, I'll take a look at the CYES thing. I repalced most of my bulbs with CFLs already, but who knows, maybe I need a... sink aerator?!


metaly, I'm afraid they don't cover your area! :-#
They go as far as Union City... I don't even think they cover San Jose yet! :'(

EDIT: I just called my cousin just now, and I asked him what areas CYES covers... He emailed me this link.

Hopefully it helps those who are interested in the program. ;)

I dunno man... But I think those aerator pieces are real cheap at your local hardware store. Should be no more than a dollar or two... Definitely worth it for the water you could possibly be saving over time. ;)

We didn't get a Terminator trailer. :[ But the Watchmen one totally made up for it. I'm still a little worried how they might screw some things up (everything looked too clean, 300-level abuse of slow-mo), but based on the trailer the director really gets Watchmen. My favorite part was actually how they used the same black and yellow logo. :D Can't wait to see what they do for the poster.

Yeah...an entire movie taking place during the future war against Skynet...with Christian Bale as John Connor. As much as I'd like an Arnie cameo, this is still an opening night view for me. I have too much history with this series. T2 was the first R-rated movie I saw in theaters. I was 8 :applause:

In other news, I was riding the bus down Broadway in Oakland today and noticed something that made me realize why I love Oakland...at Broadway and 19th St there's a store called Gold Teeth Master.

Awesome.

Simply awesome.

It didn't feel long at all, probably because it's paced very well and just a plain excellent movie where something amazing happens in almost every scene. I have to admit I was squirming around during a few of the Joker's scenes, but I think that's just testament to Heath Ledger's performance. He is seriously scary and it's tragic that we won't get to see him again.

So is anyone else thinking of going to that Classic Arcade Games show tomorrow? I wasn't that sure, but then I saw their list had SPACE LORDS on it. I might just be on that the entire time. Let me know if you want to meet up and play some DS/PSP or something. Or just Space Lords. :)

Yeahhhhhh, my audience kicked ass at the Imax showing. They applauded at the exact same spots and also during a lot more, especially when that 18-wheeler flipped over, even though we've all seen it countless times in the trailers. It just looked so amazing in Imax!

I totally agree. In fact, my main gripe with the film is that the last act probably could have been half an hour longer.

And :drool::drool::drool: at Christian Bale being John Connor. He was looking good in that trailer.
My games, DVDs, and feedback.

So CAX was pretty cool. Played Space Lords, some old vector classics, some really random old games I'd never even heard of, and talked to some guy who was distraught that they had moved the Donkey Kong II machine overnight and he couldn't find it. I also got the high score in Point Blank, wooo. It was pretty awesome seeing some of the ridiculous scores people had set in stuff like Asteroids and Battlezone, too. Just like the good old days...

I watched the SSF2THD machine for a while, but I don't know if it was because it was on a tiny arcade cabinet monitor or what, but it was pretty underwhelming. It'll probably be a big hit with tournament-level players because of all the balance changes they've made, but the new graphics just weren't doing it for me. Also, they changed Ryu's win quote? WTF?

Good stuff Metaly.

I wasn't able to go to the event this year. I was stuck in Tracy basically hanging out with family. My brother in law really wanted to go but I guess I'll have to save it for next year.

Man, Frys is gonna have FFIV for the DS for only $32.99. I'm taking that ad over to Circuit City and getting it priced matched. I'm hoping I get the $10 Gift Certificate also!

I'm going to try to get FFIV DS at Circuit City tomorrow, since that seems like the best deal. I just hope they still have them in-store when I get there after work. ;)

If you can find a Frys ad that has the $32.99 price, bring that and price match it. Also, check and see if they'll still give you the $10 gift certificate. That's what I'll be doing. :lol:

Arrrh, I just got FFTA2 (thanks, freaky!) and will probably be starting that next week, but $32.99 with a gift card may be too good to pass up. Plus I still have my CC gift card from GTA4, so that's even better. Who knows when I'll actually start playing the game, though. :whee:

Between FFIV DS and Warhawk nights... I have to also play SoulCalibur IV when it comes out. My wallet will be angry at me for the week, that's for sure... it will run and go into hiding! :lol:

But hey, at least the upcoming month won't be a bore! ;)

You know, for a moment there I actually forgot about SC4... July has not been a good month for my wallet. :hot:

And yeah, August should be great! I don't think there are any more games I'm interested in coming out until Animal Crossing in November and probably Rock Band 2, so I'm looking forward to a good three months of playing SC4 and a bunch of backlog stuff. Maybe I'll even get a few new ranks in Warhawk. That new 50 point ribbon sounds like good stuff.
