Well Beijing 2008 is on and ... hmmm :(. Yeah, not that thrilling, huh? Actually I do admire these Olympics marketing since they actually have a good levarage point, which is Yao Ming. Think about it, what have the past Olympic games lacked... intrest. It wasn't like trying to open a New York Club and use Paris Hilton as "the mascot" of the club. Now they have a 227 cm tall, NBA player and world recognized celebrity. He is basically the pillar on which lots of basketball fans will tune in, friggin billion of Chinese will come together out of pride for him and actually just those two factors will probably make this the most sintonized sport event in the last 10 years and the most viewed Olympics since the Cold War.
What kinda rubs me the wrong way is that one of my favorite comedy shows, which I watch religiously during mornings, is on the only channel that is passing the Olympic games... and for the next 10 days I won't be able to watch it... which is probably one of the sole reasons I cheerful during the day... oh well thank goodnes for Youtube.
Also , really I finally have found such disdain and disgust for Second Life. Man, you really have to need some psycological help or in other words have a screw loose to really like that game. I just saw how that crap kinda works which has given me yet another reason to hate these CSI and Law and Order show even more. I saw this Second Life episode in CSI: New York and the Another Universe? episode on Law and Order: SVU. Man, I think no respectable "gamer" can play that and admit it, hell!, no respectable peroson should admit to playing that game... say your gay and your coming out of the closet, then you should stick playing that game as your dirty secret inside and then close it up with cement. The graphics are crap, it seems like some real bad 90's mod game and its like a who's who of pervs and deviants of all kinds. It's also stupid enough to be used as a plot point in tv show. I feel like I wasted 30 minutes of my life which I can never get back. What a sad afternoon this was.
A little preview...
"Want some of this?"?
"Say my name"?
"Who's your daddy"?
Why not just end it with "Yippy Kayey M***** F*****! " or "Hasta la vista, baby" to add to the corniness and tackyness of the subject at hand... Pff!! Please, give me a break, being a gamer could mean your a nerd, I'm a nerd, but I'm not nerdy. Specially to be using those cliche dimwitted phrases.
My biggest fear is that is the future of HOME. I hope some real enforcement is done there, specially since seeing what a world with no laws looks like, I think some rules are necesary... sad but true.
