This whole business with the space shuttle blowing up is pretty weird. President Bush called it a tragedy for the nation, but after 9/11 I guess this doesn't seem quite as traumatizing. It's sad yes, but I guess 9/11 had a desensitizing effect as to what constitutes a national tragedy. Hopefully I don't sound like some kind of callous jackass by saying all of this.

For those of you who care, the answer is yes, I'm still feeling weird about things in general in my life at the moment. School, work, friends, relationships, family.. it all feels weird. I still think things are going to turn around though, and not just be back to normal, but be even better than before.

Onto other news: For the gamers, it looks like The Sims will be coming to the Gamecube. I still don't know if that'll entice me enough to give it a shot though. Also on the way to the Cube is DBZ: Budokai. I might be interested in that one. I guess time will tell. And if you like ghosts and/or goblins this may be of interest to you as it was to me.

With the proper set-up, planning, and talent, you can make some pretty amazing pictures with action figures: ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR.

I just spent like the last 3 to 6 hours playing WWF No Mercy and Mario Tennis on the Nintendo 64 with Adam, Chris McCarver, Corey, and Danny. Towards the end I felt like I was losing my mind.

On the one hand I want this, but on the other hand I don't know if I need 9 discs of Aliens.

Remember the other day when I told you it's been a weird couple of days? Well, that trend of weirdness has continued. It's like a lot of things that seemed very certain suddenly do not, and other things are doing less than making sense as well. I really feel like I may be at some kind of crucial point or crossroads right now in a whole lot of areas. I dunno, maybe I take things the wrong way sometimes and look at things in weird ways, and maybe I say things like this too often, but it's my website and if I don't tell you how I'm feeling no one else will. I'm not even sure if this makes any kind of sense, but it feels good to get it off my chest. Maybe things will be back to normal by the next time I post something. I'm going to keep my eyes to the skies and stay confident that everything will work out. Rock and roll, kids.

In happier news my prayers have been answered because Seanbaby has returned! He's back with his uncensored list of the Top 10 Naughtiest Games of All Time. It's pretty funny, but I'll go ahead and warn you right now, it's not for the kiddies or the easily offended so keep that in mind before you go looking at it at work or in front of your grandmother.

It's been a weird couple of days, kids. I'm still feeling sick despite all of the medicine I've been taking. Did I say medicine.. because I meant cereal.

Ok, now for my thoughts on the trailer for the new Matrix flicks. I'm not that impressed. Yeah, the some of the fighting stuff looks pretty cool, but a lot of it looks really CGI.. really obvious CGI. And even some of the scenes that weren't fight stuff looked like really bad CGI. I'm sure this could be because it's not the finished product, and I honestly hope that that is the case and that these flicks are going to come out and totally knock me on my "A", but at this point I'm not counting on it. I mean, one of the coolest things about "The Matrix" was that it all seemed really grounded in a realistic view of the world. Fantastic and unbelieveable things happened, but they happened in a realistic context and in such a manner that it seemed somehow believeable. Yes, the fights in the first movie seemed (and would be) impossible, but at least it looked like (and for the most part) it was the actors themselves actually doing the fighting and not computer generated versions of them. So yeah, that's my piece for now. I'll check back in later if I have more, but I'd be more than happy to hear from any of you on the subject.

For those of you that didn't get to see it during the Super Bowl, here is the new trailer for THE HULK. I'll be honest with you, it's jaw-droppingly good in my opinion. I showed it to Adam, and after it was over I looked over at him and I swear his jaw was on the floor. Before I saw this trailer I wasn't sure what to think of the movie, but now I'm officially psyched for it.

While we're watching trailers, I might as well hip you to the new trailer for the Matrix sequel(s). Watch and form your own opinions.. I'll post mine later.
