King of Kong: Fistful of Quarters - Review

I recently saw "King of Kong: Fistful of Quarters - Review" and I have to say this documentary is AWESOME. The storyline is that Steve Wiebe is trying to beat Pac Man and Donkey Kong Champion Billy Mitchell's high score on Donkey Kong. The documentary has a lot of great interviews with all the people involved in Steve's struggle to get the top score. You get to see a lot into the life of Steve and Billy and see exactly how each other acts to each other. I don't want to blow much about this movie but I will give my opinion on the two individuals and how they are portrayed.

I met Billy Mitchell at the 2005 Summer CPL tournament in Dallas, Texas. Billy was one of the most elitist assholes I had ever met because he had 2 world record scores. I do think that the scores are a great achievement but as with anyone that is very good at something being modest is very important. I met Steve Wiebe recently at Comic Con 2007. Steve was a very well spoken man who didn't mind answering any questions about Donkey Kong his personal life or anything. I find it very ironic how two people with similar goals can be so different. But back to the movie. If you enjoy documentaries on any level you should definitely check this documentary out. Look for show times at Billy vs Steve

The Interwebshow at Comic Con Thursday

Thursday was way more packed then preview night was for obvious reasons. We didn't get to meet Alex Albrecht like we wanted to and we decided to not interview Pure Pwnage because they were kind of assholes. Later that night we went to the mega64 version 3 premier.

The Interwebshow at Comic Con Preview night

Yesterday we went to the kinda first day of Comic Con, the preview night. Preview night starts at 6 and goes till 9 and has next to nothing happening and is the 2nd most crowded day of Comic Con. We made a really short video and put it on youtube of the few things we saw and such. Look for updates towards the end of every day starting today. Here's the video of yesterday and excuse our n00bness, the first day was kind of a beta.

Harry Potter 5 - After Thoughts

My last entry was live in line for the 5th installment of the Harry Potter movies. I have to say that this new movie was very well done and by far my favorite. I now have a desire to go back and read the 5th book because of how positively this movie affected me. They didn't try and keep the whole movie G for the little kiddies watching which was something I was happy about because when I read the first four books (the only I have read currently) I gave the story a sort of dark overlay like I saw it should have. There are moments where it can get very cliche but when does that not happen in a movie these days, especially a kids movie. Overall without telling you any specific details about the movie I would definitely go see this movie even if you were not a fan of the previous books or films. This movie is obviously a cut above the previous and I do believe many will enjoy it immensely.

Harry Potter Premier

I sit amongst all the other people prepared to see the 5th installment of the Harry Potter movie. A certain comic comes to mind as I see all the people from age 10 to age 40 dressed up in their Wizard and Witch outfits running around "casting spells" on me and other theater patrons. As I write this something happened and caused a multitude of people toward the front of the line to clap and cheer, then just stop..... It is funny that I am at the same place I saw the first Harry Potter movie many years ago.

When I saw the first Harry Potter movie it was a monumental event. The movie had been talked about for a good year or so and when I was finally lined up and ready to see it I couldn't wait. I do remember some peculiar things that took place during that. The most vivid memory I have is the Uber Christians that showed up and handed out pamphlets about how Harry Potter was evil and how it possessed evil qualities that could turn even the purist of people evil. Even at my young age I thought this to be a ridiculous notion and thought that it was stupid for people to even pretend that that was possible (I was then and still am a Christian, so you can see where I am coming from). In these pamphlets were "actual accounts" of people telling their stories of possessions and the like the objective of these I guess to try to sway us from seeing this demonic film.

Funny how in this many years I sit at the same place to see a similar movie in almost the exact same context. But where the hell are those uber christians????? I want a pamphlet god damnit. Anyway I will tell you guys what I think of this movie from the prespective of a person that has read the first 4 books and seen the first 4 movies but not read the 5th book.

Unbelieveably wasteful WOW Multiboxing

I am not a WOW player. Nor have I ever played WOW. But this is just unbelievable. Apparently it is popular to grab more then one pc and play on more then one character at once. This goes from between 2 characters to as many as you can run. This link is to a guy with 57 pc's dedicated to playing WOW. If anyone can explain how he can control all these at once please tell me.   read

Problem with Community Blogs; Titles with spaces

I have noticed that if you have a title with a space (for example "The Interweb Show") it will put 20% where the space should go. That seems kinda wrong and looks wierd......Just thought I'd say something about this. Here is an example of the problem.
