Cardboard Showdown
Cardboard Showdown. Word. (For those of you not in the know, it’s referring to the Cardboard Tube Samurai character from Penny-Arcade.  If you don’t read PA, you should.  It’s funny.  Very funny.  Oh, and apparently I’m Tycho and Derek is Gabe.  Or something.) …

x86 versus PowerPC
OSNews has an article that discusses alot of the differences between x86 and PowerPC based CPUs.  Unfortunately, the article isn’t nearly as useful as I thought it might be.  The author’s personal opinions are glaringly obvious and he has a bad tendency to state opinions …

Real DOA Bikinis
I have to admit that I feel almost dirty about the fact that I actually bought DOA: Xtreme Beach Volleyball.  I mean, any of you guys out there will immediately know why one might buy the game, but the fact remains that I actually followed …

Tranquility Bay… Not!
Tranquility Bay is a sort of “detention camp” to which rich parents (usually in the US) send their disobediant children.  A reporter was allowed access for the first time in 5 years and the description of the place is no less than disturbing.  The story …

“Matrix” Special Effects
Just a quick note about a NY Times article discussing some of the many special effects used in the second and third installment of the Matrix trilogy.  It’s interesting to learn that the main special effects house working on the movies was created specifically for …

Analyzing ‘The Matrix Reloaded’
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m, essentially, a fairly shallow person.  Well, at least when it comes to finding “meaning” in movies, books, and other things like that.  I don’t know if it’s my inherent laziness that prevents me from really wanting to …

‘Wonderful Days’
Aw, heck… while I’m on the topic of movies, I might as well keep going.  A friend pointed me toward Wonderful Days.  It’s a Korean anime set to release in July 2003.  Well, set to release over in Korea, anyway—who knows when/if we’ll see it …

Finding Equilibrium
My roommate bought the Equilibrium DVD this weekend and we watched it.  First, the movie premise: It’s the future well after World War III.  The entire population takes emotion-suppressing drugs because they found that emotions are the root of all of humanities problems—crime, war, etc.  …

Half-life 2 Info
I don’t know about you, but I always loved the game Half-Life.  Sure, it was just another FPS, but it really seemed to have a story to it that helped it flow and made it much more interesting.  Plus, it had cool expansion packs that …
