Good Vibrations Posted by Matt

So recently I made the switch from a MyYahoo! to Netvibes. Both sites provide a service that allow you to view the content from multiple websites on one customizable page. Almost every site now will provide you with a RSS feed, the internet standard for syndicating content on the internet. With a few simple clicks you can create your own collection of all the news, scores, and photos from your favorite sites and places them onto one manageable page. Its pretty cool. This site actually has its own RSS feed which can be found on the bottom left of this page.

One of my favorite new shows is Jericho, the now twice-canceled post-nuke drama. The story centers around a small community that struggles to keep it together after several nuclear explosions ravage most of the continental US. Having grown up in a small rural area, I immediately identified with the small farm community in western Kansas which was the setting for Jericho. The writing and acting for the show was superb, especially for network television; I would say this show is on par with 24, Deadwood, or the Sopranos. Every episode ended with a hook that compelled you to watch the next one. If you haven’t seen the show I urge you to check out the first episode and all of the other episodes on the CBS website, they’re streamed there for free.

Speaking of awesome shows that were canceled way before they should have been, Battlestar Galactica is set to kick off the fourth and final season on April 4th. The hype machine has already started, whipping fanboys and girls into a frenzy. Recently the entire cast showed up on the David Letterman show to do the Weekly Top 10.

My favorite game of all time just recently got an update. Rock Band was patched last Thursday with tweaks to the World Tour mode, the addition of an in-game store, and a few other performance tweaks. The in-game store has me a little nervous since it makes purchasing new songs so easy. With new, and surprisingly exciting content coming out every single Tuesday, its going to be an exercise in self-control.

Over the weekend I went to visit Granny Bird in Malden. Driving down KG & I were shocked at how much rain the south east part of Missouri had received. Several fields and ditches were completely flooded. Luckily my Grandma escaped most of the flooding with only a little water under her house. The food is always great when I visit my “Bootheel” Family, and the wife and I had a great time. You can see a couple pictures of KG fishing on my Flickr page.

Details are start to surface on the new World of Warcraft miniatures game. You know, because they haven’t quite milked enough money out of the franchise just yet. I love miniatures, and I used to be a WoW addict, so this is looking pretty tempting. I might have to buy a pack or two, you know, just to collect.

Today marks the return of my Super Pumped List.  This was a feature on my old website, and it got several positive comments, so I thought I would bring it back!   So without any further adieu, here it goes:

5) Hellboy II:  The Golden Army - the sequel to the severely underrated Guillermo Del Torro’s cult hit Hellboy, based on the Image comics character of the same name.  The trailer looks great and I can’t wait for it to hit theaters on July 11th.

4)  Soul Caliber IV, the sword smashing game from Namco is coming to the Xbox 360, Wii, and PS2 in June.  The graphics are absolutely stunning and will most assuredly be burning up my Xbox for several months.  The big buzz about surrounding this game is the appearance of Star Wars alum Yoda and Darth Vader.  I’m not exactly sure how fair it is to the other combatants who don’t have light sabres, but I guess we’ll see.

3) Walking Dead vol 8 -  The 8th book in the Walking Dead series has been promised to shake things up a bit.  I’ll admit the story was starting to get a bit stale, but this one should bring new life into the post-apocalyptic zombie franchise.   Look for it on shelves in three weeks.

2) The return of Battlestar Galactica to SciFi.  I’ll admit the fact this is the last season makes the debut a little bittersweet, but I’m still very excited.  The promise of a new prequel series entitled Caprica, and the possibility of a movie has got fans stoked.

1) There are two Marvel movies coming out this summer leading up to a possible Avengers movie somewhere down the road.  So the one thing I’m most excited about is the Iron Man and The Hulk movies which will no doubt make several millions for Marvel Comics and the studios that produced the films.  Its a really good time to be a fanboy!

The US Military has confirmed they have found a weapon of mass destruction or WMD in Iraq. Unfortunately its not the ones they were looking for. According to this story on Yahoo! Chuck Norris is the only WMD in Iraq. Don’t forget: “Chuck Norris puts the laughter in manslaughter.”

Finally a good use for that old Mac. Now if someone could only find a use for the new Macbook Air.

The poster for the next Indiana Jones movie is creating some buzz as the movie studios hope the fourth Indy movie can rescue the summer movie season. I’m not quite sure what they’re worried about with this one, plus the Iron Man and Hulk movies all coming out this summer. Check out the trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I have to admit, I still get a little giddy whenever I see that Lucasfilms logo. The trailer looks cool, and even though Harrison Ford looks incredibly ancient in the movie, I can’t see how this movie could suck.

Speaking of the Incredible Hulk, the trailer for the new movie starring Ed Norton is online. I saw it last night and in a fit of fan boy awesomeness I went around the house breaking stuff. This movie looks fantastic!

If anyone wants to do some early birthday shopping, I’d love to have one of these Zombie Survival Kits. You never know when the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse will happen, so its best to be prepared.

While we’re shopping for cool gifts for me, please add this Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker to the list. Its a belt buckle that plays pre-recorded tracks when you wave the special pick in front of it. So awesome! Watch this video and tell me you don’t want one too! Speaking of Guitar Hero, with this T-shirt you can take guitar hero wherever you go. Wear your shread!

Check out this amazing picture of Alley Springs that I found while perusing around Flickr. Check out some more amazing shots of where I grew up, here. These make those crappy iphone photos I have on My Flickr page look pretty silly.

Fox and NBC breaking free of the tyranny that is iTunes, have formed a new online streaming partnership called Hulu. The service allows you to watch their shows and shows from their affiliates (FX, USA, SciFi, etc) as well as several movies. Other companies have already begun to jump onto the bandwagon. It will be interesting to see if this new media coalition can compete with the digital wild west that is YouTube, but this kind of competition only benefits the consumers. My main hang up with Hulu is that it has ads EVERYWHERE. One cool feature is that you can clip the best parts out of your favorite TV shows and movies. Check out this scene I clipped from one of my favorite shows Arrested Development, its entitled Afternoon Delight.

To “rick roll” someone, is to trick them into clicking on a Rick Astley video from YouTube. This phenomenon is absolutely huge on most of the bigger message boards. Recently a couple of my friends and I have been having IM wars with the losers getting rick roll’d, it has been tremendous fun. Well apparently yesterday was a sort of a holiday in the Rick Roll Universe as it was the 20th anniversary of Never Gonna Give You Up.

Now for something completely different, check out this video of two kittens playing in the snow.
