Gwen Stefani's asian chick posse creeps me out

May 31, 2005 at 05:41 PM

It's one thing to put some Asian girls in a music video, I mean who doesn't love an Asian girl or three? But Gwen Stefani and her pack of Japanese Harajuku girls that follow her everywhere have been bugging me for a while. She drags them around to awards shows and onto MTV, and has them on stage during performances. According to Tian, these four girls are about as far from true Harajuku style... Continue reading

Rivals.com is out of NCAA Football 2006

May 24, 2005 at 11:00 PM

I saw a rumor over at Operation Sports this morning that the deal between Rivals.com and EA Sports had fallen through. It looks like the rumors are true, as I got confirmation from a Rivals exec who said, We were informed that we wouldn't be in the game after all. That's what we know. Sounds like EA has told them the deal is off but they have not been told why. Originally, NCAA Football... Continue reading

Why is ET glorifying Mary Kay Letourneau's wedding?

May 20, 2005 at 11:10 PM

I can't believe how much positive heart-warming coverage Entertainment Tonight has given to Mary Kay Letourneau's wedding to her former student. This is a woman who had a sexual relationship with her twelve year-old student when she was a married 34 year-old mother of four, and had his baby when he was fifteen. Now you're glorifying their marriage? ET has had tons of interviews and complete wedding coverage, including video coverage of the rehearsal... Continue reading

Oh yeah one more thing...

May 18, 2005 at 07:18 PM

I conveniently left out one tidbit from my long story about our trip to New York... Christina and I are officially engaged. I've been writing this post since I finished that one I planned the whole thing about a month in advance, quite an accomplishment if I do say so myself. I had been thinking about proposing for a while and once Christina and I made plans to take a vacation to New York... Continue reading

ESPN's weblogs suck

May 16, 2005 at 05:22 PM

Om Malik says ESPN's blog strategy is dumb because they're offered as a premium service and are only available to ESPN Insiders, but I think their new weblogs suck for a totally different reason. First off, let me say I think the content ESPN's writers are providing in these weblogs is quite excellent, which is why the way they're implemented disappoints me so much. It's well written and entertaining info that you can't really... Continue reading

I've messed with my links RSS feeds

May 15, 2005 at 06:14 PM

On Friday I made some changes to the way daily links were categorized and therefore have dropped my Quicklinks RSS feed, hopefully you didn't even notice and you shouldn't have to make any changes. The original plan was to try to keep blogroll and other favorites separate from my daily links in the feed, but after posting more than 600 links and 580 of them being of the daily variety I realized the extra effort...

Xbox unveiling on MTV is crap

May 12, 2005 at 09:03 PM

I know I shouldn't be surprised but the official Xbox 360 unveiling on MTV tonight was utter crap. Annoying b-list celebrities, personality-free professional gamers, very little game footage, and next to zero actual details on the system. The only details they mentioned about the 360 itself were that it'll have wireless controllers, changeable faceplates, and that it will be high-definition. If you want some real information, head on over to Kotaku or the barely... Continue reading

Our trip to New York

May 10, 2005 at 11:13 PM

Well we've been home for almost two weeks and Iíve just now got the time and the energy to sit down and post about our trip to New York City. We did as many things we could in the five days we were in town and we took over a gigabyte of photos! I uploaded 266 photos to flickr and actually labeled and tagged them pretty well. I'll be sure to point out some... Continue reading

An ultimatum

May 10, 2005 at 08:42 PM

If Anthony Federov survives tomorrow I'm never watching American Idol again. Survives to the next round I mean, I guess I'm okay if he lives. P.S. Carrie, it's okay to move every so often while singing. P.P.S. Seriously people, don't pick the same exact some song. For the love of God people!... Continue reading

NCAA Football 2006 gets a cover boy

May 03, 2005 at 05:54 PM

Every other year the cover athlete has been a player who just graduated, but this year it'll be Desmond Howard. That one is definitely out of left field. Howard won the Heisman Trophy way back in 1991, did they even wear face masks back then? I guess Rashaan Salaam wasn't available. I'm sure EA wanted to promote the new Race for the Heisman mode and picking a more recent winner wouldn't work because they'd... Continue reading
