Of Mice and Men

10:25 - Client complains that his computer "freezes" and he can't use it.
10:26 - Mouse isn't moving. Everything works, however.
10:28 - After trying the mouse on my laptop (it didn't work), I tell the client he needs a new one.
10:30 - Client digs up an old mouse he was about to throw away recently. Plugged it in, it's good to go.
10:31 - Client hands me a $20 bill and praises me like I cured cancer.

If the day had ended right there, it would have been a good day. But then I come home and read this. How can a guy - respected by his peers, who had nothing but great things to say about him last night for his tribute show (especially about what a good family man he was) - do that? What the hell happened? No one may ever know. This vexes me, to say the least.

“You always rooted for him, because he was a good guy and he overcame the odds,” said Dave Meltzer, editor of the Wrestling Observer, a weekly news letter. “It’s like if you watched ‘Rocky,’ and in the end it comes out that Rocky killed his wife and his son.”

R.I.P. Chris Benoit

He was found dead earlier today at his home in Atlanta, with his wife and son. He was my second favorite wrestler of all time.

Tonight's RAW was a tribute show to him. They showed his championship match at Wrestlemania 20, when he made that assmonkey Triple H tap like a chump. Greatest moment in wrestling, ever.

Man, this sucks.

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

The beginning isn't very exciting, but wait 'til he really gets going.

This week suuuuuuuucked. Glad it's finally over. Even our biweekly TGIF-hour didn't make it less excruciating.

Here's the new old Indiana Jones:

He might as well be sitting on a wheelchair. Nevertheless, I'm still damn excited that another Indiana Jones flick is gonna come out. Even if it's 15 years too late.

You can watch the new trailer for The Simpsons Movie here. It actually looks pretty funny. Mind you, I haven't seen an episode of The Simpsons in years. I think the last "new" episode I saw was the one with Mel Gibson producing a very violent remake of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

Latest news on the next Batman:
  • Cillian Murphy was on set shooting few scenes, presumably wearing his Scarecrow getup.
  • Anthony Michael Hall (the dork from all those 80's John Hughes movies) is in the movie. What's the role? THE RIDDLER. Or not.
  • Batman has a new ride - the Batcrotchrocket Batpod! You can see it here.
  • Katie Holmes has been replaced by Maggie Gyllenhaal. Upgrade or downgrade? You decide. Does Batman really need a girlfriend? Isn't he too busy kicking ass? Is Kobe a crybaby?
  • Aaron Eckhart is playing Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two-Face. But you already knew that, of course.
So we have the Joker, Two-Face (before he becomes Two-Face), Scarecrow, and possibly the Riddler. Those are just the villains. There are also a bunch of minor characters like the aforementioned girlfriend, Gordon (Gary Oldman), Lucious Fox (Morgan Freeman), Alfred (Michael Caine), and yada yada yada. That's a lot of people, and it's making me nervous. Don't let me down, Nolan.

Hot Damn

He can finally move his head! It only took them almost 20 years to get that right.

This movie needs to come out yesterday. What?

Brent Barry > Jordan > Kobe

Greg Popovich is wasting Brent Barry as a 3-point-shooter. Let the man PLAY!

Human Tetris

I've bowled 3 times in the past week. I think that's quite enough. J.Lo is still my pwnee, though.

Work is starting to suck, but that hardly comes as a surprise, does it?

Okkusen Man


And this one's funny and kickass:

I'm trying to stop with the Youtube nonsense but it's too fun.
