Goalie Fight! Sens and Buffalo

Ray Emery rocks! I haven't seen a goalie fight in ages! Personly I think the Neil hit was fine. If someone wants to make a pass and admire it for a few seconds in the offensive zone then some guy just might finish his check on you. Keep your head up!

Check out the vicious cross checks on Spezza and the Heatley mugging on the next face off! I thought it was cheap for Peters to try and fight Emery after A) he just fought Biron and B) Emery's a goalie and is wearing three times the equiptment a skater does. Peters said he was coming to the defense of his goalie. Yeah, well Peter's goalie is the one who left his crease and skated over to Emery (because he wanted to get himself knocked out I guess).

Barrhaven Vandalism on Youtube

This is a neat idea. A Barrhaven homeowner has put up video of his house being vandalized by punk kids. It was in the paper today, I hope they catch the little scumbags. The kids pause in front of the house and then one of them runs up to the house and smashes a porch light. Apparently the house has been vandalised a few times now (not sure why it is being centered out, need more info on that) resulting in the video surveillance.

I didn't do it! It's some other Batman....

Someone emailed me about this story that caused a three school lockdown for 45 minutes in Arizona. It wasn't me. They can't prove anything, and since when is that illegal!

article below.. (thanks Hidnseek for the link)

Holy rope climber Batman!

An MIT graduate student made a Batman style rope climber capable of lifting 250 pounds (It'll work on me, woohoo!) 50 feet in the air in under 5 seconds. It's a 'reverse rappeller' that sucks the rope in one end pulling the person up. It weighs about 25 pounds. Pretty Neat-o!

Who couldn't use one of these! Check out their website! $1000 US a pop!

Here's a video

The Grindhouse - April 6th 2007

Two of my favorite directors, Quintin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, have teamed up to make two flicks together, in that 1970 celluloid style they are both fond of. Rodriguez's is a Zombie flick (hehehehe) called Planet Terror and Quintin's is a slasher flick called Death Proof. They are going to be run back to back and presented as Grindhouse. The website is one of the best I've seen for a movie.

If you like films like Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Sin City, Kill Bill 1&2, Once upon a Time in Mexico, heck, even Spy Kids, this is a must see!

Check out the trailer!

Zombies galore! Dead Rising for Xbox 360

Haven't had time to post because I've been too busy killing digital zombies (man, that would be a good handle or name for a web site, Digital Zombies!) in Capcom's Dead Rising. You play photojournalist Frank West who helicopters in to a military cordoned off town somewhere in the middle of Nowhere USA on a tip that there's something weird going on. I'll say, the town is full of frickin Zombies! This has got to be one of the most inventive games I have ever played. It's kind of like Grand Theft Auto with Zombies(and less driving). One cool thing is that you've got this digital camera so you're always able to take pictures of the stuff you see around you (you get points for this). The game has a great into where you're taking pics from the Helicopters and you come across some major disturbing happenings, people getting dragged out of their cars, alone on rooftops surrounded by Zombies, Gas stations blowing up etc.. It really sets the scene for when you get dropped off on the roof of a mall in the center of town.

The Mall is the only thing the town's got going for it so it makes sense that the zombies are concentrated there. The opening Act has you holed up in a maintenance room with two Homeland Security Agents that are tight lipped about the whole affair, but they obviously know more and are unwilling to share this information with you. It's up to you to find out what's going on, starting with the cranky old man holed up in the book store who they call "The Professor". Agent Jessie looks like she had a previous career as a professional wrestling manager and/or pole dancer.

One of the sidelines of the game is finding normal (not-yet-zombified) people in the mall and rescuing them by bringing them back to the security control room. Said room has all the security feeds in the mall so they are always calling you on your walkie talking to tell you about new people they see holed up in this store or that.

Speaking of stores, you can walk in into any one of them and start picking stuff off the shelves to smack zombies with. Personally I like baseball bats, although Fender Stratocaster guitars are fun, and the Battle Axe in the antique store makes short work of your new zombie Friends. Half the fun is just seeing what each thing does to the Zombies. Like that lawn mower in the Mall's central park area. Yup.. You can mow down zombies! About 50 of them before it breaks. Golf clubs are fun, you can tee golf balls off down the hallways into the zombies and perforate them until they stop lurching towards you.

One of the great things about the game, that fully immerses you is you play it for a few hours and you start to think "What would I do if I were in a mall stuffed with zombies?" Find the GUN SHOP of course (this is set in the good old US of A, right to bear arms, all that crap)! Problem is, the gun shops is owned by a good 'ole boy by the name 'o Cletus, who has gone a bit coo coo in a survivalist kinda way, and he doesn't take to kindly to no good Yankee's trying to take guns from his store. He doesn't care that you aren't a zombie, he doesn't like anybody really. To get at the booty of guns in his shop, you get to go through him. And he's HARD to take on! Once you do though, you have access to all the Sniper rifles and shotguns you want, if you can stomach running the packed hallway gauntlet of zombies in that area of the mall.
And speaking of psychopaths, we have to give honorable mention to Alex the psycho chainsaw juggling clown and the guy at the grocery store with the pitchforks sticking out of his shopping cart. These are all non-zombified folks who have gone, 'just a little bit crazy' in light of the zombie times we find ourselves in.

At night, the park in the middle of the mall suddenly has this 4x4 jeep with a 50 Cal machine gun mounted in the back, driven by 3 escaped convicts who are zombie hunting. They will go out of their way to get frank and any normals though, this is anarchy after all. If you can manage to take them out, you can have great fun driving the jeep through a sea of zombies and the 50 cal gun in the back can be taken off and carried into the mall for all sorts of mischief.

Hands down the best Xbox 360 game I have played so far..

Mmmm BRAINS!!!! Here is a video trailer, kinda violent though (like the game) but you get what I'm talking about. This ain't for kids.
