    The Road

    I just finished reading the novel The Road by Cormac Mcarthy (author of No Country for Old Men, etc.) and thought it was excellent, easily one of the best novels I've ever read. Its basically an incredibly depressing and gritty post-apocalyptic novel about a man and his son trying to survive and...

    The Colony

    Just finished watching the first episode of this show. It seems to be edited pretty poorly. They skipped by some of the most interesting segments (introductions, scavenging from a supermarket and fighting off looters, trekking through a river) in less than two minutes. Otherwise, it is a very...

    "Swine Flu" appears, quickly spreads to US. This is exactly what we've been fearing all along. This flu seems to have been spread from birds to pigs to humans. Most of those that are dead are young adults. This is usually the hallmark of a true pandemic. It easily spreads from person to person...

    Human Computation I know that this is really old, but I just learned that this guy will be one of my professors next year. His class, "Great Theoretical Ideas of Computer Science" is apparently very fun, but also one of the hardest classes I will ever...

    Mediocre performance on new machine, should I be worried?

    I finally got my new PC built and running, but I'm a bit disappointed with the performance. I was wondering if I should be expecting this kind of performance from this hardware, or if its a driver/configuration issue. I'm getting about 14-25 FPS on Left 4 Dead with all max settings on 1024x768...

    Fed cuts rates to ZERO percent, begins flooding market with money

    This is very VERY bad. Remember Zimbabwe? Remember Germany during the Great Depression? The government has run out of options, and is now printing new money. In the short term, this will get credit going again, but in the long term, it could mean hyperinflation.

    The Secret of NIMH

    This was the most underrated and awesome nostalgic children's film, no? I rented it yesterday just for the nostalgia, but its not quite as dark and epic as I remember. But it was pretty complex for a children's animated flick.

    This is a shameless plug for my game, RocketPod You will need Java 6.7. to run the game. It was made by me in association with the Carnegie Mellon Game Creation society. Although it isn't "done" by any means, we're having a release party on Friday. RocketPod is a top-down, 2D shooter in a...

    My guitar broke :(

    My Agile AL 2000 broke a couple of days ago. The signal started going in and out, and it got to the point where I had to constantly hold the cable in place to get any signal. Eventually it stopped emitting signal altogether. Something tells me its just a snapped wire around the 1/4 inch jack...

    GM to go bankrupt by early 2009, Ford by 2010, ask for $25 Billion bailout That's right folks, the Big Three are about to become the Big Two or even the Big One if Uncle Sam doesn't do something about it. 25 years of poor decisions, shitty cars, and failure to meet market demands have left the giants of American industry...

    My ideal zombie game

    After playing the left 4 dead demo (an utter disappointment), I started thinking about what my ideal zombie game would be. What I would like to see someday is a single-player zombie survival horror game that plays something like a cross between Far Cry 2, Stalker, and Resident Evil 4...
