Random Thoughts Re-Revisited The $5.98 EP

Congrats to Xbox Podcast on their 52nd (unofficial 1 year) episode! I wish I could have been on the show, but I have this thing called a job that gets in the way of having a social life. Anyway I hope to see at least another 52 episodes! Xbox Podcast

I watched Stephen King's The Mist last night. Wow! Just wow! What a great movie. I haven't seen a horror movie this good in at least 10 years. I've been a huge Stephen King fan since the 80's. I've read a lot of his books. He's basically the only fiction writer I read. The ending was definitely a shocker that only King could come up with. Brilliant! If you haven't seen this you really NEED to. It's a must watch movie. On a side note I share a birthday with Stephen King.

I've been listening to a podcast that is NOT gaming related lately. I've been listening to the Stuck In The 80's Podcast. They mostly cover music and movies from the 80's. It's a great podcast if you are stuck in the 80's like I am. Stuck In The 80's

The latest Three Red Lights podcast on IGN was great. They actually interviewed Don King. He's a riot. He's a riot because he's just so damn over the top with his whole spiel of bullshit. It was entertaining to say the least. Three Red Lights

I was looking forward to buying Dark Sector untill I saw the reviews. Now I'm really not so sure I'll be buying this game. Knowing me I will though. Right now I have more than enough games to keep me busy. Not to mention GTA4 is coming out the end of April. I may end up waiting a few months before I pick it up. I'm in no hurry.

Lately I've been in a big movie watching mood. Three nights in a row now I've watched a movie. I generally play video games for about four hours straight, but the past few nights it's been an hour and a half for gaming and then a movie. I might watch I Am Legend tonight. I'm not really expecting to like it all that much though.

Cheers to the three of you who actually read this blog. I got nothin' but love for ya. ;)

Well. SK had a different ending in the book. Frank Darabont who also adapted King's books for The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption, wrote the screenplay.

When are you doing your podcast? I am thinking on doing a gay porn podcast, myself.

I really need to read the book now. I hate seeing a movie before I read the book.

I still plan on doing a podcast sometime this spring. LOL Good luck with the gay porn podcast. You know I'll be listening. HaHa

The Mist is great, it's the first story in Skeleton Crew. A bunch of King stories.

About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
