XBOX 360

My PS2 finally gave up the ghost. It had a rough but well loved life where it had been modded, unmodded, filled with cat hair and played all sorts of terribly cheap DVDs and badly copied import games. At one point it fell behind a bookshelf, but since it still had Gran Turismo in it I just kept pressing the button with a ruler until I could ferret it out. Last night, it went from having problems playing movies in games to not reading disks at all. A quick autopsy revealed that the button that gets pressed when the lid was shut had a weird film on it of god knows what and probably was the culprit.

Right now EBGames has their PS2 Upgrade Offer, where they give you $100 if you trade in basically an OEM PS2. You need the memory card, the controller, four games and a PS2. The guy up here was willing to wheel and deal with me and only is going to knock off $10 for the fact that the PS2 is dead, so I guess it’s time to put it all in a box and get a 360. PS3 doesn’t interest me (Sony can’t build electronics for shit – seriously) and I don’t have the TV for it anyway.

Beer brewing is going to have to take a hiatus, and I’ve told my wife this is my Christmas and birthday present.

Barack Obama Hangs Himself

Lord. Obama’s flip flops are finally collected in one place and put on display for everyone to see. Whether it’s about his frequent drug abuse or banning guns or any of his other half assed us-against-them ideas, he’s a fucking idiot and we’ve got the quotes to prove it. What was Obama doing while McCain was serving his country? Smoking dope.

A few choice ones on gun rights and whatnot:

“I am not in favor of concealed weapons. I think that creates a potential atmosphere where more innocent people could (get shot during) altercations.” — Barack Obama

And my personal favorite: OBAMA SEES DEAD PEOPLE:

“On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.” — Barack Obama

And Obama visits Iraq:

“Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go.” — Barack Obama

Just kidding. He’s only been there once and this was way before that.
