Transformers 2 is back on

Looks like mouthy college kids and movie fan nerds arent the only ones to fall victim to having a war of words on internet message boards.

Michael Bay retracts his statement...just as i predicted.

So, what exactly is Michael Bay doing with TRANSFORMERS 2? -- Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

Its frightening that i know some people who have SERIOUS issues determining the difference between fantasy and reality.


HD DVD Followup

So it seems that Michael Bay has said that because Paramount has gone HD DVD exclusive, he wont do transformers 2 out of protest.

Hmm. I think im calling bluff, but that would really suck, despite all the nerd haters out there saying "Bay ruined my childhood cause Megatron wasn't a gun!1!!!!!11eleven"

I guess we will wait and see.

The Format Wars Heat Up

Paramount, Dreamworks dropping Blu-ray in favor of HD DVD exclusivity - Engadget

Vick Guilty

He pleads guilty to dogfighting charges.

Talk about a hit to my perception of sports heroes again. Its frightening how stupid some people are.

Pittsburgh Weekend: Part Deuxxxxxxxxxx

Yep, went back out to Pittsburgh to visit the newly formed Sloka family. Headed out thursday afternoon via Equinox and got there around 10ish on thursday night. Spent time chatting with them and generally catching up on their post-wedding activities.

The next morning we woke up(slooks made pancakes :o ) and then headed out to get ready for the Dave Matthews Band concert. We made a grocery store stop and then met up with the other sloka siblings and a friend of Jen Sloka.

From there we headed to the amphitheatre, did some classic tailgating, drank some beers, grilled some burgers(and smores!) and got a little wind/sunburned. Was nice to get out and get some sun after being cooped up inside for all the recovery crap i had. Concert was good. Sat with Scott, Slook's brother and had a good time. Seats werent as close as in chicago, but the crowd around us was better and we were straight back from the middle of the stage, a few rows behind the soundboard. Better sound balance and better view. Setlist was alot better too including some new songs as well as a song that hasnt been around since 2000...Sweet Up And Down. Was awesome to hear it again.

Next morning i hopped in my car and made the trek home. The drive from Chicago to Pittsburgh isnt bad, esp since ive driven that road about a million times when going to, coming from, or travelling around my college days. I could have flown, maybe even saved money but i hate just driving my car 2 miles each day...i like to take the chance to let it stretch its legs a bit so it can clean itself out a bit :)

Got home in time to see the bears play saturday night. While they were playing against the texans, Rex looked SHARP. Making good reads, quick decisions, not throwing into double or triple coverage like he used to. He ended up completing 8 of 10 passes for 50 yards with an 87.5 passer rating. Not terrible. Ill take that!

Sunday night i had a date :O. Met a new girl with a familiar name...will be neat to see how it pans out. Going out again on wednesday. Looks like i need to prepare to get my ass beat in bowling.

Till then -

Slow week

Well, not so much slow, but very busy at work. Boss out on vacation normally means its going to be a slow week, but i have tons of work to do this week.

My WoW Paladin will be 70 this weekend. Hard to believe that the first character i ever created in the game(besides the mage i deleted at level 3) is actually going to hit level 70 and start raiding. He has his epic charger mount, decent gear and is accumulating decent reputation with the key factions. Pretty amazing. After leveling a Shadow Priest and Warlock to 70...leveling a paladin was kinda rough. Lack of damage was kinda boring. However, i found that switching from a retribution build to a holy build actually made leveling go FASTER and EASIER. Who knew?

Blizzcon is this weekend. Im excited for a new expansion, but if there is a level cap increase...im going to be kind of disappointed. Its basically saying that raids are only for the top tier raiding guilds, and who cares if 90% of players cant see TK, SSC, BT or Hyjal. Disappointing.

Watched the new Babylon 5 Movie, The Lost Tales. I was happy and disappointed at the same time. While it was nice to see Boxlietner back playing sheridan and seeing the new CG work done that made the station look incredible...while not out of place.....It seemed very low budget. I liked Babylon 5 because of the interaction of the characters and the locations, especially the station and the White Star ships. This one was filmed all on green screen, and was mostly just closeups of 2 people talking. The starfury sequence in the 2nd episode was good...but i wanted to see more of the station again, see more of the old cast and see stories that actually had different story lines, rather than just one static one for 30 minutes.

This post was going to be a short excuse of a post saying why i hadnt said anything worthwhile all week. Guess it was more than that. One last thing. Im hooked on Huey Lewis and the News lately. Its all ive been listening to on my iPhone. So awesome!
