Oh, Hello Blog

I see that I've been neglecting you. I'm sorry. See, I just got back from a long trip to South Dakota. My brother's soccer team, Westside, made it to semi-regionals! Unfortunately, they lost just two games from making it to nationals. Oh well. Here's to next year!

I drove through a large windmill farm, which was very impressive, but not quite as majestic as I had hoped. In fact, there's something ominous and looming about the giant technology, but clean energy is clean energy and I certainly don't want to discourage that.

I saw the movie Year One starring Jack Black and Michael Cera and directed by Egon Spangler...err, Harold Ramis. It has some very funny moments, but some of the jokes were such duds that it was hard for the movie to recover. I liked it best when the movie allowed the inherent absurdity of certain Bible stories to play out.

Finally, I'm struggling not to return Ghostbusters for the Wii to pick up the new FPS The Conduit. Ghostbusters was highly disappointing for reasons I may go into later. I did replay it recently and ghost wrangling is kind of fun, but the absence of a dedicated multiplayer component really hurts the game's replayability. And weren't we promised a competitive multiplayer mode, Redfly? What the heck happened?

Knowing that Harold Ramis had anything to do with Year One lowers my opinion of him greatly.
