I tell ya, soon as I don't make a new post in two days it all goes downhill. I wish I had David Jaffe's problem. The guy has "quit" blogging about seven times now, yet he's always back within a week.
What's up with me?
I'm back on a Rock Band kick. I never unlocked all the songs in RB2 through the tour mode. I've finally got all the cities and gigs unlocked, now it's just a matter of wrapping up. I've been buying a lot of new songs lately, too. Silversun Pickups, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimmy Eat World, The Offspring. Good stuff.
PopCap has laid waste to my free time and made a small dent in my wallet. (It's PopCap, how much money could they really take from a person?) Between the Peggle add-on for World of Warcraft, the recently released Plants vs Zombies, and now Bookworm and Peggle on my iPhone, it seems like I've been giving them a lot of my game time lately. The Bookworm iPhone app is excellent! Definitely got my money out of PvZ as well. Heck, I'm still enjoying the mini-games well after completing the main game.
I mentioned iPhone apps and my previous post was sent from an iPhone... yes, I broke down and bought one. I've been getting too jealous of all the apps available for the platform that just aren't happening on the Windows Mobile platform. It's also lighter, slimmer, and easier to use. My soon-to-be brother-in-law was looking to get a new smartphone and had been eyeing my model for some time, so I sold that one to him. Apple has made a great device... looking forward to the 3.0 operating system and the day when Lisa gets her new MacBook Pro (so that I can steal it from time to time and try my hand at iPhone development).
I'm currently watching The Office and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. The Office is a lot better than I thought it was. I admit I thought it was a trendy thing to watch like Lost or 24 which is why I avoided it until now, but it is genuinely hysterical. The Terminator series is... okay, but nothing great. I'm just fascinated by the Terminator universe lately and I'm hyped for the new movie.
Speaking of movies... I saw Star Trek today. Talk about movies that I was hesitant about. Up until the first screenings of the movie I was absolutely disgusted by the premise of JJ Abrams rebooting the Star Trek universe. Then I started hearing nothing but good things about the movie from people who had respectable opinions on ST. So, I took a trip to the theater and checked it out. Wow. Great job to the cast and crew for a solid flick that was both faithful and refreshing. I really hope to see additional films from that team. Zachary Quinto knocked one out of the park with his Spock portrayal.
Lisa's graduation is this Saturday. Yay!
