Are blogs dead? Maybe just mine.

By November 16, 2009 geekery, Meta, video games

Anyone else having trouble updating their blog lately? It’s not that I don’t have any content, or random stories to share. I think that I’ve just become more adept at sharing them elsewhere (like the Facebooks and the Twitters). Sometimes I think I might just turn this thing into a Tumblr page and go mobile. Anyway, I’ve saved up enough bite-sized content for a regular sized blog post, so here goes:

1During a freak accident at a video shoot, my Blackberry plummeted several feet to its demise. All the more surprising, it actually wasn’t me that dropped it. I was forced to kick into “Operation Upgrade” several months early, and got myself an iPhone 3Gs (32gb). I no longer have all that “app envy” coursing through my veins. Quite the opposite. I think I need to download an application that will occasionally shock my hand, forcing me to put down the iPhone and pay attention to my surroundings.

2All these videos games are killing me. The crazy, pre-holiday momentum has really kicked-in, and I’ve done a great job of staying ahead of all the new Xbox game releases that I want to get. Which has been about one a week as of late. Thankfully, it’s over for me until the new year, and my real problem now is when to find time to play any of them. Currently I’m rocking: ODST, Borderlands, Dragon Age, Modern Warfare 2, and Left4Dead 2.

3I take too many photos of my toddler and robots (though rarely in the same photo). Looking to also break the mold was my friend Hangry, who invited me to start up a joint photography blog. I was going to wait until we had more posts going to mention it, but I needed more stuff to pad out this list. You can follow our semi-random photo-awesomeness at our newly minted site, Crop and Bracket.

4Somehow I’m still making time for television. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by V, considering that I’m crazy-possessive about the original mini-series. (I plan on writing a full nerdcore review of the show after the initial 4 episode run concludes.) Also, I’d like to give props to FX for awesome season’s of Sunny in PA and Sons of Anarchy.

September, I am ready for you.

This is the first post in my “update the blog every day through the end of September” initiative, launching today at LLR-HQ.

This weekend my family, and some fabulous out-of-town visitors, did some exploring around the Houston area. I finally got a chance to check out the Kemah Boardwalk, and scratch that off the list. If you want a random burst of fun this morning, crank up your speakers, head over to the Kemah website, and listen to their ‘rockin’ jingle. “The fun never stops at Kemah Boardwalk!”]

What else? I’ve been spending the past few weeks trying (sometimes unsuccessfully) to get all kinds of random projects and work-related stuff finished up. It’s mainly to get ready for more random projects and work-related projects, but also to prepare for the onslaught of new television shows and Xbox games that will start invading my home media center early this month. Basically, I’ve got a few weeks to get my stuff together before Halo:ODST drops, and I’m playing firefight mode all the time. Tomorrow I plan on posting my “watch list”, so if you have any good Fall viewing tips, let me know.
