Radio Tonight

Oh yes, and for the third post in a row:

Radio Show tonight.

Tune in at w00tradio.net.
Here’s a direct link to the winamp playlist file thingy.

I’m on from 5 – 7pm.

Tonight it’s mostly metal and industrial, but Wednesday(same time) will be a little more general.

Toon in!

300

Saw this Friday with friends.

First off, great movie!
Plenty of action, the effects were great, and I really enjoyed myself.

You’re not going to learn much from this movie, but that’s not the point.
That, and I think the actors were assembled more for their chiseled abs than their acting skill 😛

I was a really neat minimalist approach to the backdrop, nothing that wasn’t relevant to the story was there.
I liked it, but it did give it a weird feeling of being done on stage.
As in a live show. Really weird. But good weird.

The effects did get a little old, but not too old.
Listening to comments behind me, they did give it a neat comic panel look. All action then slow down to emphasis something.
It’s not done as often as the previews would lead you to believe.

It didn’t end in the way that I thought it would, but I also didn’t read the comics.
I would happily recommend that everyone go see this. It rocked.

, how was it on IMAX?

Weekend Update

Wow, kinda lots of things happened this weekend.

Friday:
Went and saw 300 with and and Doug.
It was AWESOME! Go see it, go see it now!
More on that later.

Then I found out that I was accepted as a DJ at w00t Radio.
I’m on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5-7pm est.

Saturday:
Woke up earlyish to go to IKEA. Actually, I woke up at 9, thought, no, I’ll go at 10, then decided no, I’ll go right now.
And I did. And I got chairs. With very little hassle.
Then I assembled two chairs and called it a day.
But not before cutting myself with a screw-driver.

I actually did an impromptu show on w00t since someone wanted a dinner break.
It mostly worked out. I had one system crash during the show(never helpful) but all in all it went well.
Also started setting up the Linux box Saturday. Which means I made a mess of the office, which means I’ll have to clean it up so that people might be able to sleep in there.
And I think the second HD is dead.

Sunday
Woke up to find that both computers were off. Thought it might be a power outage, but I didn’t hear the UPS.
And none of the other clocks in the house were reset.
Mystery!
Finished assembling chairs, watched a lot of House.
Did more Liux geekery(it really shouldn’t be that hard to install/setup a graphics driver, even with step-by-step instructions).

Dinner with the folks then some Battlestar to round out the evening.
Oh, and I picked up a table from . Because I need a bigger table.
Wow, that table looks huge in my kitchen ^_^
