Why, you ask? Well, it's simple. People didn't read the graphic novel.

The only reason I'm doing a blog is because I need to put two things in my status and can only put one, so I'll just do a 5-minute blog.
Stuff I've been doing:
Well, 2008 has come and gone. I've decided I'd choose my Top 5 entertainment moments of 2008. This can include games, movies and the internet in general! Anywho, here they are.
Bruce, your title got stoled. Feel violated.
Anyhoo, here's pretty much all I want / am going to get for Christmas!
Alright, so some music and games to talk about.
Hey guys, I know it's been a while since I've done a blog, but I've been really busy with school. Been trying to keep them grades up!
Anyway, the reason I'm doing a blog now is because I decided that I'd do the 2008 Holiday Buyer Guide for AceGamez.Com. I did the Buyer Guide last year, and afterwards I felt really good about it, and received a lot of praise for it, so I decided that I'd definitely do it again. I've been working like mad for the last two days to compile info on over 60 games, so now that it's in and being edited as we speak, it feels nice.
A big part of the Buyer Guide after the Buyer Guide itself, is the Top 5 of all the reviewers from AceGamez. Everyone sends their Top 5 to our editor and they go up under the Buyer Guide. This really made me think, what WERE my favorite 5 games of the year? I knew it would be tough to decide, and I finally did. I'm not going to drag it out by putting a bunch of nominees and categories up, I'll just give 'em to you straight. And by the way, we only got to write a sentence or two about the games, and I'm not writing any more for you assholes (:P), so here they are:
Here's a rundown by each sport of my favorite teams. I'll go alphabetically by sport. (These are all the sports I care about at least a little)
Boston Red Sox
However, my favorite team in the NL is the LA Dodgers.
Again, favorite team from the opposite league is the Dallas Mavericks.
Football could probably be considered my favorite sport. This is why this category is so important.
Favorite team in the NFC is the Minnesota Vikings.
Don't really have another favorite team. But it used to be the Avalanche, so I guess I'll go with that.
Soccer (or Football):
Italy is my favorite national team, mainly because I'm, like, 50 - 75% Italian (the rest consists of Swedish and German).
But my favorite club teams for soccer are Manchester United and Roma.
I'm not just an American who saw looked at all the European club teams and decided that the team who won last year was my favorite. I've been a fan of Man U for years now. Just wanted to point that out. As for Roma, well, I'm Italian, so I had to have a favorite Italian team right? Well yes, and since Rome is the capital, the parts of my family who like soccer have been supporting them for a long time.
The only reason I had more of an explanation for Soccer is because most americans don't like soccer and don't watch it. It's my second favorite sport right next to football. Then Hockey, then Baseball, then Basketball.
Giants vs. Jets. I pick Bills.
Yankees vs. Mets. I pick Boston.
Rangers vs. Islanders. I pick Sabers.
But the main point of this blog is to not only tell you what my favorite teams are for the record, but ask YOU what your favorite teams are. So go on, don't be shy. What are they?
In Gaming News:
-I got into the LittleBigPlanet beta, so if you're in and have made levels, add me. I'm in need of some levels :P
-I got Burnout and have been loving it.
-I've been playing a lot of Superstar in Madden and Madden in general.
-Rock Band 2 has come out with RHCP downloadable content and I've been all over that shit as their my favorite band.
-Some fucker stole the domain GamePortrait.com, whoever you are, you're a fucker and a terrible excuse for a person.
-Had an extra LBP beta code and went on the GameTrailers forums. Some guy gave me the new Wipeout for PSN, Pain for PSN, and Qore Episode 3 for PSN, assuring me a spot in the Resistance 2 beta :)
-Might have more LBP beta codes coming my way. I'll keep you posted :)
Favorite teams! Now!
Catch you later,
... has been really good!
On Monday's I watch Chuck and Heroes.
Then it's onto Thursday when I watch My Name is Earl, 30 Rock (when it comes back), It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and The Orifice.
Chuck so far has been pretty darn good. I'm enjoying the story lines, and I've been a Chuck fan since it's been on, and I'm happy to say it's got the same charm and whit to it as it ever has. If you're a fan of the show, definitely continue watching, and if you aren't I think even if you pick it up now it'll still make some sense to you. Check it out.
Heroes is easily one of my favorites. Season 2 was kind of a bust. Not much happened and it was pretty boring, but we're only 3 episodes in and more has happened since Season 2. Seriously, if you're not into this show, check out out the first season. I can understand how some people can't really get into this show, but I really like it. If you're just starting to watch, don't pick it up in the 3rd season. You won't understand a thing.
My Name Is Earl has definitely been disappointing me as of late. The show isn't too funny, and definitely not up to par with the other seasons. If you're a fan, I'd suggest watching it, if you're not, I'd suggest watching the first few seasons, but this one looks like it's gonna bust. (It's been steadily declining in both funniness and quality of the story for the past few seasons.) If you still wanna check it out, however, you can click here and see the past few episodes.
30 Rock is a hilarious, hilarious show. Tina Fey plays Lizz Lemon and Alec Baldwin plays Jack Donaghee. It's basically all the crazy crap that goes on behind the scenes of a live TV show. The star of the show Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) is absolutely insane and Lizz Lemon has to keep track of him, as well as a past-her-prime actress. I'm really not explaining it that well :P, but seriously, check the show out.
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is one of my favorite shows of all time. It's a politically incorrect show that covers all the topics shows like Seinfeld, and other great sitcoms wouldn't touch with a 20 foot pole. These include: Eating humans, hunting men, pretending to be cops, looking like a sex offender, accusing your friend of being a serial killer, dating a mentally retarded person (and not knowing it!), dating a 12 year old North Korean girl (that you thought was your age!), trying out for the Eagles, finding a dumpster baby, getting a new father, soliciting bribes, exploiting the virgin Mary, banging your friends mom, going on welfare, making a terrorist "Jihad Tape", getting crippled, getting molested, finding a dead guy (pretending you knew him!), getting a gun, being racist, wanting an abortion, and underage drinking. Now if this intregues you, you're a terrible person. Just kidding! I know it sounds bad, but it's seriously one of the funniest shows on TV. You can watch all the first 3 seasons and the beginning of Season 4 right here.
And last of all my favorite show on TV right now, The Orifice.
The Office is easily my favorite show on TV right now. It's got some of the best comedy ever seen in a TV show or anywhere. The humor is undescribable, and the characters are priceless. This is basically a disfunctional office with a goofy, dumb boss who can never seem to get anything right. It's awkward, it's funny, it's on Hulu also. If you want to watch the past 5 or so episodes of The Office and see whats up with the show go ahead and click here (great quality). Or if you want to watch episodes from all Seasons, go here (bad quality).
Hulu.com is easily one of my favorite sites on the web. It's where I go to see all my TV shows that came out recently and best of all they've got deals with the TV companies, so you only have to watch 15 seconds or so of commercials every 10 minutes or so and you can watch all the TV you want whenever you want.
SurfTheChannel.com is also completely legit, as all it does is gather episodes other people have uploaded to sites like MegaVideo and Tudou. Note: Megavideo is easily the best quality, so if you're watching Season 2, you can always choose Megavideo (as far as I remember), and Season 3 doesn't have it, so beware the long buffer times!
This wasn't going to be a long blog, but I guess it turned into one! :P
Gaming wise, I've been playing or will soon be playing Burnout Paradise, Supreme Commander, and Ninja Gaiden II. Finished Lego Batman, am trying to move on from COD4, but it's just such a good game to play and talk with friends, and am also trying to play MGS4. Just can't!
That's about all.
I'll catch ya'll round the net.
Use your keyboard!
