"When it comes to any group of stereotypical people the answer is always violence. Start swinging and singing children's bible songs and don't stop until everyone is in a coma." - Batjew

If you've been around me lately, you've probably heard me yammering on and on about this game that's coming out for the PS2 on my birthday called Kingdom Hearts. If you haven't been forced to hear me go on and on about it then I'll let you listen to me now. It's a collaboration between Squaresoft (the creators of Final Fantasy) and Disney. Not since peanut butter and chocolate got together has their been such an awesome alliance of almost unholy proportions. Then, to make my opinion of the game even higher, I e-mailed Gabe from Penny Arcade when I heard that he had a Japanese copy of the game, and told him how I was thinking of getting a PS2 just for that game. He told me I would not be disappointed. That my friends is good enough for me. Here's his review of the Japanese version.

This game may be too addictive. It's called Collapse and I don't want to stop playing it ever. If you liked Tetris or Dr. Mario or Bejeweled or any games like that I believe you'll enjoy this as well.

Here's a double whammy of quote hilarity...

Seanbaby is back to save us from ourselves! Off you go now.
(In case you were thinking of not checking Seanababy's article out, here's a quote from it: If you can sue someone to put a missile on things you don't want destroyed, I hope you're ready for me to ride a bike that launches heat-seeking rockets and eat out of a lunch box that can shoot down helicopters. If all goes well, I'll have also sued to include hover jets and a sno-cone maker. You see, by believing in yourself and trusting in the system, stupid lawsuits just might lead to a paradise of snack-dispensing, rocket-launching vehicles after all.)

"Padawan tested, Master approved." - Matt (or Mattmattmatt as you may know him) on the new Star Wars cereal

I've begun the process of talking with the kids from the band Miles From Somewhere about becoming their new singer. Notice, I said "begun" because nothing has really taken place yet other than me saying, "Someone told me you guys were looking for a new singer and that I should give you a call." and one of them saying "Cool, I can't talk now because I'm studying for a final, but we'll talk more this weekend." That's really about the extent of it, but maybe something cool will come of it. Never hurts to be in another band.. just ask Blink 182's drummer.

Once you head to the rest of Hip Today, be sure to check out the new stuff in our stores and the new stuff in Stuff That's Freakin' Sweet.

"When a man lies he murders a part of the world." - Merlin (in Excalibur)

There are many truths in this world we live in, but one that will probably always hold true is that if Pixar makes a movie, I will go see it. I'm hoping all of you feel the same way, because I just got a glimpse of the superb cinematic goodness that they will be unleashing on us for the next three years.

Can this be true?! George Lucas admitting The Phantom Menace wasn't as great as he told us it was?!

I don't know how many of you are into that show Buffy, but I read an interesting rumor/clue/teaser about it from one of the shows producers that said the death at the end of this season will be the end of one of the couples, but will also be the beginning of "SuperXander". I have no idea what that means, but I like the sound of it for some reason. Even though I'm sure there is no connection between the two, the picture they showed of Xander (or Nicolas Brendan if you prefer) really made me stop and realize he'd make a pretty decent Superman for the upcoming flick. He couldn't be any worse than Brendan Frasier. In fact, I'm going to go as far as to say that he'd be a whole lot better.

If you're like me you're over 6 feet tall and named Chris... but you're also probably excited about the Spider-Man movie. Know what else I'm excited about? The Daredevil flick starring our very own sweet Benji-boy, Ben Affleck. I remember before we saw the first pictures of Spidey's costume there was all kinds of debates and such over how they were going to ruin it, and as of late the exact same thing has been going on in with Daredevil. Well, apparently this is the first actual picture of the costume. It's not the greatest clarity, but I still think it looks like it could be pretty cool. Here's another version of the same picture that's a little clearer. What do you think?

"Yeah, go eat apple dumplings." - Matt Drane

If you'd like to move on to the rest of Hip Today instead of reading some of my random ramblings and funny quotes and such, then feel free to click here... otherwise, keep doing what you were doing and read the stuff on this page and in the archives. I assure you there's plenty to see and do and go to within these archives to your left, but when you get done with them, please do continue on to the rest of Hip Today.

What are may favorite songs at the moment? I'm glad you asked because I'm going to let you hear them...
1,000 Suns
Final Destination
Holiday With You

All three of the songs are by a band called AM Radio. These kids are beyond good. I promise you that you won't regret getting these songs... and if you do regret it.. you're an idiot.

Chris' Final Thought for the Day: All dreamers are looking for is someone who will believe in them... and it's a shame all girls want a "man" not a dreamer.
