It has obviously been a long time since the last time I wrote an entry. I apologize (again) for the ghostliness. In truth, I've been working on a personal project for all of that time and I'm happy to say that it's finally finished. My new born is called "LeetPoetry.com". That's right! A video game poetry site. Visitors can rate and comment on all of the poems submitted and contests will be introduced very soon. Currently, I'm working on getting the word out. Thus, the reason for this post. I need all the help I can get so feel free to send over any comments or suggestions. By the way, thanks so much for stopping by. YOU ROCK!
So on Sunday (the 21st), I visit Zune.net to get my music fix. When I try to log into my account, I get this weird page stating that the page I've requested does not exist. Next, my buddy Blue asks me why my Zune profile and Xbox Live profile say "Code of Conduct". At that point, I had to assume the worst. Sure enough, I log into my Xbox Live account and get the "This account has been suspended message". My mind is baffled. First thing that comes to mind is "Could it have been because I signed on before attempting to play the Resident Evil 5 demo?". I realize that suspending me for playing a region-pinned demo is less likely to be the reason. At that point, I call Microsoft and of course, customer service didn't help in clarifying the reason for my suspension. I was given all the general reasons for what could have led to my suspension but no positive facts regarding my account were disclosed.
Finally, I decide to take a look at my email to see if Microsoft may have messaged me. Sure did! In bold underlined text, the reason for my suspension was written on the first line of the email, "Inappropriate Content". What was it that was so inappropriate? My motto, "Your ass is mine!". Yup. That was the reason for my suspension. Lucky for them, my suspension was only a day long. If it had been any longer, I would have given Microsoft a much BETTER reason to suspend me. I'll leave it at that.
You have probably seen the trailer for Sega's upcoming Sin Cityesque game MadWorld but maybe what you saw didn't help much in illustrating the title. If you haven't seen it, well...I'm gonna save you from a lackluster first impression. Here we have the director's cut. Enjoy!
Digital photo frames are cool but that's all they are. In my opinion, there is no fun factor. Actually, I could imagine that constantly swapping images onto the same memory card can become a pain especially in an age when most digital products are so "here and now". With the iGala, that is totally not an issue. The iGala is not boring, common digital picture frame. It is actually a mini touchscreen computer that runs on Linux. With the iGala, you are able to log into your Gmail or Flickr account to set pictures to display on the fly. I DO WANT!

A while back, I bumped into this really awesome Batman Lego cake on Flickr. Although the design of the cake was a most impressive one, I couldn't help but think "Is that thing even edible?". From the looks of it, it looks as though the creme of the cake is very tough due to it's purpose to shape. In order to maintain it's shape, I would image that the outer shell would have to be sturdy. Now, the big question is, does this cake even taste good? Something that looks that solid can't possibly taste good. Even if it did, how on Earth would you know if you weren't even able to cut yourself a piece? So it seems that my suspicions were correct.
Poor guy. He probably really did wanna break off a piece for the kids but just kept thinking to himself, "I told them...I freakin' told them that the kids would actually remember being hungry. Crap!".
