Stuff I find entertaining. YMMV

Las Vegas Trip Report

Tuesday, July 4, 2006 by darco


We arrived at the Las Vegas Airport on July 2nd at around 10am. The aircraft made a slightly harder-than-normal landing which seems to be the norm for Southwest Airlines these days. We waited for our bags to arrive at the carousel for half an hour. Once we had our luggage, we were ready to go.

Because it was so early in the day, we couldn't go to the hotel immediately—checkin wasn't until 3pm. So, we headed over to the strip to eat at Le Village buffet at the Paris.

Las Vegas

Saturday, July 1, 2006 by darco

The past few 4th of July weekends for me have been quite boring, if not outright depressing. Well, that pattern will be broken tomorrow when Sophia and I fly to Las Vegas!

We will be there thru the 4th, and returning early enough on the 5th to get to work on time.

So yeah. Fun times.

Big Field Day

Big Field Day 2006 (Logo) Busy weekend. Saturday, Sophia and I went to BFD, and saw Yellowcard, Franz Ferdinand, H.I.M., as well as a bunch of other bands. We danced and ate overpriced junkfood. Overall, an enjoyable experience. Slight sunburn, but nothing too bad.

Best TV Show Ever

Battlestar Galactica. Absolutely. Must watch. Ron Moore is my hero.

Have a nice day.

Good Night, and Good Luck

Sunday, February 19, 2006 by darco

good night. and, good luck. (Poster)Sophia and I went to go see the movie Good Night, and Good Luck on Friday night. and it was brilliant.

It is a historical film directed by George Clooney about Broadcast journalist Edward Murrow going up against Senator Joseph McCarthy. This is a truly timeless piece that has many themes which resonate today as loudly as ever.

I highly recommend it.

Battlestar Galactica on iTunes

Tuesday, December 6, 2005 by darco

When Apple announced that they were going to be selling TV shows on the iTunes Music Store, I immediately thought: "Wow, I really wish they would put the new Battlestar Galactica on there..." Problem Solved.

Unfortunately, the episodes appear to have a 4:3 aspect ratio rather than the original 16:9. :(

Æon Flux

Monday, December 5, 2005 by darco

I never really got into the animated series called Æon Flux. However, the movie seemed vaguely interesting, so yesterday I went to go see it—not really expecting to be very impressed. However, I found it to be throughly enjoyable.

The most distracting part of the movie for me was actually shown in the preview, the whole sharp grass thing. The rest of the movie makes up for it in my opinion. It is certainly not a movie that everyone will enjoy, but nonetheless I recommend it. Plus Charlize Theron is hot. Rawr.

XBox 360

Wednesday, November 16, 2005 by darco

In the interest of giving credit where credit is due, Microsoft appears to have hit it out of the ballpark with XBox 360. Not bad for only their second try. Sony has a lot of catching up to do, as Microsoft has set the bar pretty high.

From XBox Live, to media-center integration, to HDTV support, the XBox seems to have gotten it all right. My only gripe is that the media center stuff only works with a windows PC. Bummer. I guess that means my MythTV box still has some use. :)
