Better Check His Video Game Collection

I know the media will point to violent video games on this one. Don't get me wrong, I think the high school violence problem is definitely that: a big problem. But, don't blame social and/or parenting problems on video games, movies, or music. I don't pay taxes in my video games, you don't see me avoiding my taxes. What video games were these people playing?

America The Unsocial

I find it funny that in America, it is socially acceptable while someone else is filling up their cup at a soda fountain to:
1. Get ice from the center ice dispenser
2. Get soda from the opposite side of the person originally filling up their cup.
But, it is NOT socially acceptable to get soda from the same side as the original person at the soda fountain. They get all bent out of shape and feel like you're invading their "intimate zone" if your soda cup is next to theirs. As if the soda cup is an extension of their personal zones. Ridiculous.

System Of A Down lead singer is a genius

Good lord. Serj Tankian is a musical genius. I can't believe how good his music is. He has yet to do any song that isn't simply amazing. His new album Elect The Dead is a must have for me on October 23rd. Although Korn was my favorite band growing up, System Of A Down has to be my all time favorite, simply because I love every single song from beginning to end from all of their CDs. Not one bad song. (hed)p.e. was right up there with them until they came out with Only In America which was absolute crap. If you would like to hear the incredible sounds of Serj listen here.

Oh It's Cruise Time! This Saturday Jenna and I will be taking off from Tampa on a 5 day cruise of the Western Caribbean! We can't wait. It's just pure excitement around our house. We already started packing Sunday night. Our first stop will be Grand Cayman. There, we're just gonna walk around. We didn't really book any excursion. I heard it's expensive there anyways. However, when we get to Calica we're going on Mayan Ruins tour. Neither of us can wait for this. It's gonna be so awesome. I would like to get a picture of the December 21, 2012 prediction if possible. I have heard way too much about this "end of the world" prediction for me not to be skeptical about that year. Anyways, I'll put more about this trip up when we get back.

My Little Gamer (MLG)

It took some time to convince myself I should put anything really personal like family on my blog. However, this was just too cute to not tell everyone about. As this blog has shown I am a very faithful Halo fan. Well the other night I was enjoying some Lone Wolves action on my conquest to become a 50 when I got up to get a drink. Our one year old son Nathan climbed up into my chair, sat down, and picked up my controller and started playing Halo 3 for me. That would be so awesome if he became MLG (Major League Gaming) when he grows up. To think he could make $200,000 a year for what I do for fun. He can be whatever he wants, it's just cool to see him pick up something like playing a game before he can even really talk.
