Its been a few weeks since my last update mostly because work has been crazy.  Its no secret the newspaper  business isn’t exactly doing great.  Lack of advertising and a sluggish economy has caused revenue to decline which in turn has forced several cutbacks and major reorganization.

 

Over Labor Day Kari and I drove to Eminence to hit the river and relax at the family cabin.  The picture on the right is prior to our float on the Jacks Fork.  Kari said she was embarrassed to go out in public with me, but I was just trying to fit in with the locals.  I love getting to go to the cabin.  Its so relaxing being away from work, my phone and everything else. I can’t wait for the Arts & Crafts in a couple weeks.

The final character list for the upcoming Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe game has been revealed.  I’m excited to see the inclusion of some of the baddest of the bad in DC Comics.   Darkseid and Lex Luthor will be joining the ranks and should make for some interesting matchups with the classic MK characters.   Combining these two worlds together is like mixing chocolate and peanut butter.  I love Mortal Kombat and I love DC Comics, of course i’m going to love it when you mix them together!

The fall TV season is here and all of my favorite shows are back, the ones that didn’t get canceled that is. Prison Break, one of my favorites,  is back with a crazy convoluted plot.  The crew that has already broken out of two separate prisons has managed to get scooped up by the CIA, and is working on recovering a top secret hard drive from an evil organization called The Company.   It sounds pretty wacky, but it looks amazing in HD and I don’t really care.

One of the new shows I’m watching is Sons of Anarchy.  Its about a California motorcycle gang and their shady dealings.   Much like Sopranos it takes a deeper look at their inter-personal affairs and puts a face some of the bad people out there.  I’ve only seen two episodes, but I’m really hoping it gets picked up for next season as its one of the better dramas I’ve seen, though it borrows heavily from the Sopranos.

Apple announced new iPods and updated their iTunes software this week.  The iPod just keeps getting cooler and cooler.  The most radical change in the form of the Nano.  It got a new redesign that looks almost identical to an older model but this time its packing a nice video display.  It also comes in a plethora of new colors if you’re into that (KG.)

Rick Rolling is so last month.  Barrack Rolling is the new hotness.  By the way, is anyone surprised he’s a muslim?

I keep forgetting to mention a web-only show that I absolutely love.  Its called Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and it was produced by Joss Whedon.    Whedon is responsible for cult favorites Firefly, Buffy The Vamipre Slayer, and the new Dollhouse show on Fox.  Dr. Horrible stars Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser) and Nathaon Fillion from Firefly.  The show has a super high production value for an web series and has that classic Whedon sense of humor.  Please check this out, you can watch it on the official website or download it from iTunes.  The show has gained such a buzz on the internet that there are already talks of a sequel as well as this webcomic.
