PS4 impressions

Saturday, March 8th, 2014

They happened to have a couple of PS4’s, when I was in Target to get a coffee maker, so I picked one up.  Noticed it had been opened and resealed, once I got home, but so far, it seems unblemished, so all good on that front.  Haven’t even touched any games yet, been playing with watching people online, having gotten an idea it might be amusing from the PA folks.  I’ve been watching a french house party, 3-4 guys, one girl, a DJ setup, an hookah, and some tunes I’m enjoying so far.  The comments are amusing.  I wish I spoke better french.  Some jerk keeps complaining that the music is “gay”, so one of the guys mooned him.  He had a cute ass.  There are some little digitally inserted robots that play around on screen.  Among things I’ve watched them do, sit on someone’s drink, looking like they are taking a piss in it, jumping when people ‘touch’ them virtually, and lots of waving trying to get attention.

Now I want to get a camera for mine.

Bad ideas with good money

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

“Let’s take the best features of using the internet for our delivery system, and replace them with the worst parts of a physical club going experience, limited capacity and awkward hours for people who have jobs (and money)”

OK, to be fair, it is pretty unlikely that you will get a punctured lung in the mosh-pit, over the internet. Really, that depends on how excited you get about paying for a video stream that will force you to accept a degradation in quality, rather than let you decide for yourself that you’d prefer to wait for a high quality stream. Maybe watching blocky video with skipping sound is what gets you jumping. I don’t think that ‘hopping mad’ is the same as ‘moshing’ though.

Then again, someone bought Instagram for a billion frickin dollars, so what do I know about what people like, eh? =p

Twitter and ustream = ipad fail

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

If you try to follow a link to a u-stream video feed, from the Twitter app, it basically locks up the entire iPad. Had to completely power it down, as it had stopped responding to double-home, so I couldn’t even just kill the offending app.

Another kickstarter comes through

Sad sad world

It’s a sad sad world, when “Good news, Pogo is being prepared for deportation” really is good news.

Amazing video-music artist Pogo is sitting in an American jail, thanks to an incompetent booking agent for his U.S. tour.

WTF George Lucas?!?

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Back when I worked at the music company, I got access to the Star Wars music box set and was annoyed by how it was missing Yub Nub. Today on random, I discover that they did include an all new song, Jedi Rocks.

Really? I can’t get my cuteness-overload of Ewok celebration, but I can get a cheesetastic 80’s rock revisioning?

Similar Voices, Different Choices

Monday, June 20th, 2011

I happened to catch the end credits of some flick yesterday, and hearing the voice, I thought it must be an artist I’m already aware of. Somewhere on the clear yet nasal scale, around the same location as the lead singers of Lightning Seeds, Lincoln, and Size 14, but I’m not quite able to say for certain which one it is.
Off I go in search of the truth, and when I get to Amazon’s page for the soundtrack album, the song with the right title is first track, but at first glance, it looks like they screwed up the artist name, and are giving some in-movie-band-name. See the flick was “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole“, and the artist for the track is listed as “Owl City“. You can understand my assumption and hopefully forgive my surprise when I find out the guy has been around long enough to get some net-hate. He turns out to be a decent enough modern balladeer in the twee-electro-pop style that some of the kids like these days.

So far, none of his regular work has quite the catch-me-quality of To The Sky, at least for me.
