Microsoft sure knows how to advertise

Funny story, gang. I just got back from a trip to Target to replace my headphones (previous ones stopped working on the right side, got a glorious new set). As I'm perusing the Electronics section, something strikes me as amiss. I notice that the Xbox 360's demo screen is dark. I look around the display case until I find the demo unit, and this is the sight that greets my eyes:

That is all manner of good advertising, folks.

About Panglossone of us since 7:37 PM on 01.23.2007

Oh, me? I'm just some guy, you know?
Alternatively: I'm a 26-year-old student at the University of Memphis, majoring in Japanese, minoring in Weeaboo, with a certificate in being ridiculously nerdy. Inexplicably, everyone I meet in real life seems surprised that I am a nerd at all. I play just about every genre of games out there, with an especial focus on stultifyingly intricate RPGs and soul-shatteringly hard action games. I listen to a vast array of bands that bring me glee when I hear their sounds, and have a slim chance of overjoying me again when I meet someone else who's heard of them. I take and enjoy philosophy courses. I read obscure English poems. As my handle may indicate, I'm obsessed with Voltaire. I watch a whole lot of anime. I'm developing a penchant for beer snobbery. I'm writing short stories whenever I have time. I am prone to bouts of self-criticism and navel-gazing. I am painfully self-aware. I am, in short, nerdiness personified.

I don't hang around IRC much anymore, but I'll keep this ancient cockboard down there as a memorial to some truly rad people I don't see these days.
