Haven’t really felt like playing much of anything lately. But when I do it’s usually Geometry Wars 2 or Castle Crashers. Simple little games that don’t require a lot of thought or energy. I suspect that to change considerably when Gears 2 comes out this fall, but for now I think I’m happy in 8-bit land. Speaking of which Mega Man 9 comes out for the 360 this week. Thought about downloading it for the Wii, but space issues and lack of achievements did it in for me. It’s nice to have these downloadable games that most of the gaming public is oblivious too, but are perfect for the hardened grumpy old side-scrollers like me.

So Wednesdays here are Ghost Hunters Nights. Jessica is hooked on that show worse than I’ve ever been hooked on anything. It’s kind of funny. I’m more interested in the hosts than the ghosts. They are some pretty funny guys. I think we may have to battle over the remote in a few weeks when Pushing Daisies returns, but hey both shows are about dead people right?
The new season is upon us, and with it comes new shows that are great, and many that are not.
I have found Fringe to be the most enjoyable so far even if it is just an X-files clone. Terminator has also been surprisingly strong in its second season. It’s too bad I will be leaving it once Chuck returns. Heroes came back strong last night but they need to kill off some actors. There are way too many story-lines for them to build an audience. Normally I like multiple story lines but most of these people I could care less about. That’s a problem isn’t it? But last nights episode had moments of big screen splendor, that I’m surprised they didn’t try to release it as a summer movie. It would have been better than some of the fare.
I think the writers strike has definitely soured me this year as I don’t see tons of new shows to be excited about, but hopefully something will surprise me. The spring brings more hope with the return of Lost and BSG.
Painted while somewhat watching The Sarah Connor Chronichles, here’s the Punk Spikey Hair Creature. He’s one of my favorites so far. Etsy
Update: Gone. Sold at CONvergence.
So we were throwing away large frames at work. I decided to paint one of my favorite creatures on it. I’ve never painted anything this large before.He’s a little different as his flowers don’t go all the way around. He is currently not for sale, but I’ll listen to any bribes. Click the picture to see bigger and better detail. That’s Quimby gaurding him.
The Fringe premier which I felt was strongest the first hour reminds me so much of good X-files, that I can’t help but wonder how long it can stay good. The acting is great even if I don’t buy Joshua Jacksons slight turn into good person by the end of the premier. Score another one for JJ Abrams and crew as Fringe is one to watch!
