MMORPG Predictions

Unless you’re Mark, you’re probably looking at the title of this post and thinking… huh? Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games. They’ve been around for a while, evolving along with the technology, expanding the horizons of generations of young geeks, many of whom are now old geeks. Basically, it’s like Read more…

The Springer Cafeteria

I may have mentioned before that the cuisine of the Netherlands is not necessarily what one would call ‘gourmet’. While the quality of the basic food ingredients is much better than what you generally see in the US, it’s the dishes they decide to make with them that makes you Read more…

The Grudge

Rating: This movie was pretty lame. Ann and I rented it, well, actually, I rented it and then I made Ann watch it with me because I am such a baby about scary movies. It’s strange. I love scary movies, but I hate being scared. At one point Ann said Read more…

Rating: It made me laugh. Once Ken set the expectations (“Okay, now don’t expect any kind of plot.”), I just sat back and waited to see what would happen. If you don’t know, Napoleon Dynamite takes its name from its main character, who you get to follow around for a Read more…

My New Toy

Thank god that my mom bought us an extra suitcase to go home with. After the splurging at the outlet malls, at the bookstore, and at Best Buy, we filled it up without a problem. While I was ultimately unsuccessful in my bid to convince Ann of the need for Read more…

The Island

Rating: Let me start off by saying that I am not a fan of Michael Bay. When I saw the Rock and Armageddon all I could do was lament the fact that someone agreed to spend all that money to make two hour long music videos. Pearl Harbor sank to Read more…
