You Are Edward From "Edward Scissorhands."

You are very shy and often misunderstood. Innocent, sweet, and artistic, you like to pass your days by daydreaming and expressing yourself through the arts. You are a truly unique individual. Unfortunately, you are quite lonely, and few people truly understand you.

Take The Johnny Depp Quiz!

So what do you kids think, does this describe me? I'm sure some of you know me as well as I do, and I don't know if I should be frightened by how well I think it's pegged me. I'm going to go over here and be lonely now.

For those of you who've heard about the shopping cart shenanigans we taped the other night, those videos will be up soon, so keep checking back.

I'll say it once again for those of you that missed it, Happy Thanksgiving to you one and all.

For those of you (like myself) that side with Nintendo in the Console Wars, here's some news I was pleased to hear.

So I saw an episode of this Muppet Babies ripoff cartoon called Baby Looney Tunes this morning. It may have been one of the worst cartoons I've ever seen, and it honestly makes me feel bad for the kids that are stuck with watching it instead of Muppet Babies. It worries me.

It seems like I had some other stuff I wanted to talk about, but I can't recall what any of it was, so I'll just say Happy Thanksgiving.

Which Diesel Sweeties Character Are You?

November 2002 has officially become Hip Today's biggest month ever! And it's not even over yet! At some point yesterday, the record set way back in June or July of 2001 was finally broken. If there's anything I can do to continue this upward movement in readership and visits please, please let me know, and if it's at all possible I'll make it happen. Much thanks to you all.

Which Travis Member Are You?

I was absolutely delighted by the results of this quiz.

This made me laugh a great deal. It's straight from Gabe over at Penny Arcade and even though some of you may have no idea what he's talking about, I think it's still pretty funny.
"Apparently a bunch of hacker types took a break from giggling with each other about the irony of installing Linux on their M$ Xbox and noticed they can't connect to Live. David Beck actually wrote an article sympathizing with these poor souls who took it upon themselves to totally f*ck over the insides of their Xboxes. David reports that "Numerous owners of modified Xbox units reported in forums at the Xbox Hacker site that they were locked out of Xbox Live." I'm sorry, tell me again why I am supposed to care that a bunch of thieves and jackholes can't use their modified systems to f*ck up my online games with cheats and hacks? The article goes on to quote one of these winners as saying "All I know is I have two machines--one modded, and the other not. The one that's modded can't connect at all, and the unmodded one works perfectly." DUN DUN DUN! Holy sh*t this is like an episode of f*cking Murder She Wrote. Someone call Matlock so he can solve this mind bending puzzle! News flash Hacker Bob, Microsoft announced months ago that modded systems would not work with Live. Here's an idea for all you poor saps with $200.00 coffee tables now. How about in the future you don't crack open every piece of electronics you get and fill it with illegal hardware. At the very least how about you don't bitch to me when your soldering iron escapades leave you high and dry."

Target now has an exclusive RED Game Boy Advance. If anyone is curious I'm open to receiving this for Christmas.

Watch the trailer for Bulletproof Monk, won't you?

So I'm watching Speed Racer, and one of the bad guys on the show says something along the lines of "We had no idea this Speed Racer was going to be so good!" ... and they're talking about him being good at racing. AT RACING! HIS NAME IS SPEED RACER!! That's like not expecting a guy named Fatty McEatsalot to be good at winning a pie eating contest.

Here's a Weezer survey you can take and possibly win some cash.

There will be new pictures up soon. In the meantime, be sure to scroll down and see if you've missed anything cool.
