Sayin' WHAT, exactly? I'm going to vote for Obama, so I'm not arguing against the candidate. But this naivete that seems to be surrounding him bothers me. It's the line of thinking that just because we may elect Barack Obama the 44th President of the US that everything will "magically change". Obama will definitely give people something to believe in, but I have a seriously hard time in bowing down and worshiping the word "Change" just because it's Mr. Obama behind the microphone, as opposed to Hillary Clinton, or John McCain, or anyone else like Donald Duck. I listened to one of his speeches last night on TV, and it was the same old crap you hear from every politician at this level of government. Don't get me wrong, I will vote for him. I like him. I just don't buy into the automatic "It's Obama, game over - everything's fine again!"

What's cool about Brubeck is the fact that he still plays live gigs. He just turned 87 in December. Not like he's gonna run around like an 80's metal head, but the fact that he is STILL out there from time to time is amazing.

I know this isn't relevant to the point of this post, but the title caught my eye. That's not exactly the most popular Pink Floyd you're quoting from there, Wil. :) http://joe.siegler.net/mycds/p/pink_floyd/the_final_cut_2004_remaster.html

I'm a big Bond fan - I love 'em all. Heck, I even liked the film they did with George Lazenby. But I agree, Casino Royale is a fabulous movie. It's a great MOVIE, not just a great James Bond movie. I disagree about Die Another Day. I admit the surfing thing was bizarre, and the invisible car was also pretty out there. However, the first 45 minutes or so were incredibly good. Bond being captured and forgotten about was something I always wanted to see. I think Fleming would have loved that sequence.

I remember this game well. Wil, do you still have your old Atari stuff? The common games like this are easy to come by if you don't have it. My brother and I still have our 2600 from 1977 along with a healthy collection of cartridges. I still have a 2600 (that new Flackback 2) on my desk at 3D Realms, the Duke Nukem people. Just played good ol' Combat today, the original Deathmatch. Ha! :)
