Pearl Jam 11/21/13 San Diego

Posted Nov 24, 2013 at 11:22 am

On Thursday I went to see Pearl Jam at the Viejas Arena in San Diego. I went in with what I was sure were unreasonably high expectations, but I was not disappointed. What I got was the best live performance I’ve seen, removing any doubts that Pearl Jam is the epitome of rock bands. The […]

Soundgarden at The Wiltern

Posted Feb 25, 2013 at 11:46 am

I saw Soundgarden perform at The Wiltern on the 16th. The performance was excellent, the mixing could have been better (the bass drowned out the leads), and the crowd was mature (someone even brought a young child). Overall it was a great experience. I never thought this would happen. The Wiltern, named after its position […]

Red State

Posted Oct 28, 2011 at 11:57 am

Red State is a great movie. It’s about an extremist religious group killing people and a resulting standoff between them and government agents. The group is similar to the Westboro Baptist Church, only with more murder and lots of guns. I found it to be totally unpredictable and full of surprises, which is rare in […]

Super 8 is a film about these kids who are making a movie for a film festival or something. They are faced with many challenges during production including casting, budget, equipment failure, and an alien monster thing. Will they finish the movie? See the movie (Super 8) to find out. This movie had a style […]

Noty

Posted May 13, 2011 at 5:23 pm

I’ve been inundated with requests to explain what “Noty” means. Well, I have finally been authorized to release the following information, which will hopefully satisfy the public by explaining who or what is Noty. Noty is the culmination of decades of scientific research and billions of dollars in funding. The greatest minds in the world […]

TF2 Replays

Posted May 7, 2011 at 3:14 pm

The latest update to Team Fortress 2 added Replays. This allows you to save a recording, much like a SourceTV demo, of your current life on servers that have the feature enabled. What separates this from SourceTV demos, however, is that replays are automatically delivered to the client over HTTP. Once you save a replay, […]

Portal 2

Posted Apr 23, 2011 at 11:50 am

Portal 2 picks up where Portal left off, preserving the same original concepts and attitude. This time, however, there are more portals, more physics, less portals, more flubber and other goos, and other new surprises. This game is longer and more story driven than the first. The main attraction here is the puzzles, which at […]

The Adjustment Bureau, 127 Hours, and Snatch Reviewed

Posted Apr 11, 2011 at 1:38 pm

Well my internet connection was down yesterday so instead of the usual internet stuff, I wrote a few movie reviews. The Adjustment Bureau is a story about a mysterious group that oversees everyone’s fate, making subtle adjustments as needed to ensure things go as planned. A mistake is made, exposing the group to rebellious politician […]

Live On I-5

Posted Mar 29, 2011 at 11:49 am

Live on I-5 is the first live compilation album released by Soundgarden. It contains 17 recordings from the West Coast part of their 1996 tour, so it covers all parts of Soundgarden’s career. It also features two covers to change things up a bit. The quality of the recordings is excellent, with a full sound […]

Minecraft

Posted Dec 13, 2010 at 7:20 pm

Minecraft is a game that cannot easily be described. Any attempts I’ve heard failed to do the game justice, not necessarily because the game is amazing, but because the descriptions make it sound pretty lame. I’ve been putting many hours of free time into the game since I bought it last week, so there is […]
