I saw this game the other night online. I didn't try it out and I doubt if I ever will.
Its was for the Palm Pilot its was called like the Columbine Massacre Game. Written
by some sicko claiming to be from the Trenchcoat Mafia. I dont know if it even was
a real game. I just think that certain types of things should be cosidered off limits for
games. That one goes way over the edge.

That is a freaky images on the cam. Its an extreme close up of mini me out of focus.
Speaking of mini me, mine, my boy turned 2 years old. I know people say their kids
are advanced, but mine is down right scary in how advanced he is.

I watched 2 DVDs tonight, both on commentary audio channel. American Pie had the
2 bothers that directed it and Jason and Stifler and Shitbreak. not brick as in the captions,
something your find out listening to the secondary audio channel. The Big Hit this time the
second commentary channel was the writer. At the end he pointed out you have to be a real
geek to listen to the track. I thought about and agreed, but then again I would rather
watch a foreign movie with subtitles instead of dubbing. It also drives me crazy when
they tell you about all these scenes that end up on the floor. Idle hands did the ultimate
by actually show people the alternative ending. The lamest was probably Lost in space,
because it showed how screwed up the movie was from the start.

My wife and I have been married for three years. It's funny both of us think is been a long time but, it has gone by so quickly. Advice? Find someone who can put up with you for who you are not what they want to change you into. Make sure your not marrying some kind of nut job, unless of course you are aswell. If you are dumb enough to marrying someone based on their looks, get real in 50 years you'll be looking mighty different yourself.

Happiness Vs. Pleasure @Tuesday, August 22, 2000 - 13:33:45 - tu
Reading the art of happiness. In the book they go into the concept does something bring you
happiness or pleasure. Pleasure being a fleeting thing were as happiness in something real.
They also talk about materialism, and greed. We are guilty of that, TV movies, society breeds
it really. If you don't own product X your life isn't complete. Your not a real man unless you drive product Z and drink product Y.

Gore probably gave his best speech ever. I think he hit every key point. Its kinda funny I think
he will do better if he feels he is the underdog. I heard last night GW people don't want to
do the debate thing. I think the convention did a great job of energizing democrats and the country.
To bad the republicans are up to their same old dirty tricks, leaking stories on Clinton again.
I doubt anyone cares, and its ironic that Bush people condemned the leak, they dont want to
be burned on it.

I saw only bits a pieces of it, it was a great look at Gore.
Did anyone else see The Rock walking around the convention?
I thought Leiberman gave a great speech, his wife aswell.
I enjoyed the 2 jokes and the comparsion between the state of texas and the country.
The trickledown ecomonics equals a bird eating the oats after the horse was
done with it, it was a riot.
I think that Leiberman is religous is really fustrating Republicans. If Bush used
that much religion in a speech, people be complaining he was from the religous right.
Tommy Lee Jones did a wonderful job describing his college roommate Al Gore.
Al Gore's daughter gave a indepth look at what a wonderful father she has.
I was surprised to hear her talking about abortion rights.
I read somewhere her sister is a comedy writer for Futurama.
Over and over people were saying it's not a popularity contest or a beauty pagent
people should decide on issues not personality.
The convention was more for energizing the party, I think it already has
accomplished that. I am very intrested in what Gore has to say tonight.
I think the debates are going to be a key issue. I just don't see Bush be up to the

Neighborhood-Violence @Monday, August 7, 2000 - 23:54:46 - tu
Some of my wonderful neighbors were having a shouting match around 8pm.
A good 20-25 minutes. Then around 9pm another (somewhere else?) loud screaming
match etc.. I did consider calling the police. Around 9:20-9:30 an ambulence showed
up, things stayed pretty quiet after that. Its a very interesting neighborhood to live in.
We did call the cops once, we thought we had heard a gunshot, turned out to be a
peice of glass exploded in the fridge.

X-Box Info @Monday, August 7, 2000 - 14:21:17 - tu
Married Guy sent me this cool story....
Several excited Xbox-related Web sites report that the Xbox Software
Development Kit (SDK), which went out to developers this month, reveals
previously unknown details about the machine. Chief among them is a
replacement for the Windows user interface (UI)--dubbed the Xbox
Dashboard--that offers a friendlier face to a "stripped" Windows 2000
OS. The Xbox will ship with support for both NTSC and PAL video formats
so that it can be used in any locale. Support for the Moving Pictures
Experts Group (MPEG) format is also included.
As for hardware, the Xbox will ship with both 56K modem and Ethernet
connectivity, hardware-accelerated DVD playback, and more. The digital
dashboard (which essentially provides a UI when no game is running)
will interface with the DVD player for DVD and CD playback and offer
access to features such as system configuration utilities, connectivity
utilities, and saved game management. Game controllers connect to the
system using standard USB ports, opening up the market for third-party
developers to develop gaming devices as well as keyboard and mouse
The Xbox game format is not compatible with Windows-based
applications, although its games are developed similarly using familiar
tools. Microsoft Direct3D will be the primary graphics API, as it is
for traditional desktop-based versions of Windows. But Xbox will not
use DirectShow for streaming media, instead incorporating proprietary
technology that takes better advantage of the underlying hardware.
Microsoft expects to ship the Xbox in late 2001.

Relgious Right types....

"I’m so amused when I read these articles that say, ‘The Christian Coalition is dead.
The religious right is dead, I tell you, they ought to put out a story to the fire department
here that the largest ballroom in the Marriott Hotel is jam-packed with corpses" - Robertson

This is kinda odd. Robertson reported
his meeting claimed 5000 supporters, 2 other stories state 1,000. That a pretty large difference.
More Pat Robertson quotes.
"Five people can decide the destiny of unborn children".
"Five people can decide whether we can pray of not pray."
"It looks as if two or three of those unelected officials are getting ready
to retire or go on up the that great court in the sky"

"Our people have got to learn the professionalism the liberals unfortunately
always learned," says Falwell. "And when it comes down to the time to vote,
and to win, that we don't look for the perfect candidate but the one closest to
what we believe in."
