Before I get to this other thing I had to say I have to make sure that you all check this out. I'm not sure what to think of it yet, like whether I would give it a thumbs up or down since it's still a little early in the goings to do so intelligently, but I will tell you that when I heard THE line... well, it almost brought me to tears of nostalgic, days of my youth-filled, joy...
By the Power of Grayskull...

As you may or may not know, my soul (that is as it pertains to my employment) is now owned by Barnes and Noble, or more specifically one of it's subsidiaries, GameStop/FunCo Land. That being the case I find myself unable to be more excited by and more interested in the subject of video games. Not that I didn't like, enjoy, maybe even love video games before, but now I find my days spent with talk of the differences in Halo and Gunvalkryie on Xbox (a system that prior to this job I would have avoided talking about for any reason), and why I need a Neo Geo cabinet arcade system in my house, and how great this Christmas is going to be for Nintendo and it's "Gaming Cube." I didn't used to talk about things like this... or if I did it was at least much much less frequently and with much less fervor. But now that it's upon me like a white upon rice, I'm beginning to like it ... and that frightens me.
