Last time, I wrote: It is a brave new world, yes
indeed. Brave new world, my foot. As usual, I have gotten overtaken
by events/gotten really lazy. A lot has happened since my last
update...6 week grades have come and gone, Navy has beaten Air Force
only to lose to Notre Dame for the 41st time (ouch), and now it is
almost time for Halloween. I had my first warship battle over a month
ago, and I have yet to get an article up. I will have to get my pictures
from that developed and put that together this week. Yikes! I am behind.
Hence, I wanted to get an update put up before much longer.
While I have been pretty busy, I have had a little
time to goof around. On the gaming front, I've been slowly chewing my
way through Tales of Symphonia, and I will hopefully have that pretty
much squared away by the time
Baiten Kaitos arrives. I bought Pikmin 2 and played a couple of
hours of it, but I decided to loan that game to my friend Vince for a
while, since I am so engrossed in Tales. I am also getting very, VERY
excited about the impending release of the
I really like what I'm hearing about this new hand-held, and being from
Nintendo I'm sure it will be a solid piece of hardware backed by some
incredible software. I am so excited about this system, in fact, that I
am going to put together some running commentary in the games section.
I've also made a couple anime purchases recently.
I've finally gotten around to watching the third Patlabor movie,
Patlabor WXIII, as well as the original Patlabor OAV. I've been enjoying
both immensely, especially the hilarious Mini-Pato bonus disk that came
with WXIII. I have also started watching "Ghost in the Shell: Stand
Alone Complex," which after the first couple of episodes looks to be a
real winner. Stay tuned for reviews!
I must confess, I have also been drawn back into
the wonderful wide world of Lego. Online resources such as
Peeron.com (set inventories) and
Bricklink (used brick sellers)
are chiefly responsible for the rekindling of my Lego passions. It is
quite a neat system, really. I can look up a part from a certain set
that I need for a new model on Peeron, and then go to Bricklink and find
a seller that is willing to sell me 100 of that piece for 5 cents a
piece. I could hardly fathom a more perfect way to suck money out of my
Well, I guess that is enough for now. Navy is
playing Rice today (stupid Texas), so that means that I have a few hours
of mandatory fun to tend to today. However, I still have a little time
to goof off till the march-over starts, and I intend to take advantage
of it. I now intend to play video games for several hours.
