Clinton and Anti-Scary Gaming legistlation:

i could not resist the urge to put my two-pennies in to this conversation: regarding Clintons ever-crusade toward "government parenting" ideology. Check it out, put your pennies in!

excerpt: (regarding San Andreas version 1 witch hunt)
"yeah, so i guess it is ok to yank a video game that was sold without the programmed access to this games dirty content, but leave all the other R-rated films containing extreme violence and ‘american’ nudity on the shelves right next to it…any one of which can also be modified to anyone’s desire via computers in any way desired by savvy pc users.-and without a access mod or code! Has Hilary ever read the[really researched] FEDERAL reports (see below link) that violence among young adults has actually gone DOWN drastically, even during the emergence of all of these ‘Scary’ games??"
The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) latest report:
[FTC Issues Report on Marketing Violent Entertainment to Children]:
Interesting Facts and Statistics regarding Games & Youth Violence:
Department of Justice report on Violence decline in Youths-last 12 year statistics:

verrrrry interesting.....

well i, being me, am obviously an advocate for freedom of expression, and anti-censorship. It is also my job to parent my children, not the governments. simple as that folks.
what do you think?

x-mas+capitalism=new pcgames!

so what do we all want this year? hmmm. i have company of heroes, there is that add-on...hmm, 2 new factions,campaigns and sweet new TANKS..yeah. Then there's still Bioshock, which actually runs on me ol' tyan mobo. let's see, Crysis, Medal of Honor Airborne, Call of Duty 4...

o wait, i told myself the short story that i would buy no more games whatsoever....until i build a new machine. So after that lie, maybe i'll go back to Team Fortress 2 [courtesy of orange box] and laugh at high pitched, squeeky nerd voice's chime in- "eh guys are eh, we gotta set the sentry's up in crossfire...GOSH..."

one-sided tirades about capitalism and materialism aside, i've heard both versions this year. Somehow I am caught in the middle. When you have kids, somehow you have to cater [submit?] to one, while ideally, hope that you may reserve some form of personal integrity in the hopes that by the time the children get older, you will have taught them the importance of NOT blowing all your hard earned money on plastics and soaps during X-mas. But, i challenge you all to.... create something... Yeah! with your own two hands even! I once color-penciled a birthday card for my wife, and it made her feel pretty special, which made me feel good too.

rambling mush after multi-sided tirade aside:
go buy a few things, go make a few things, save some of the cash for your savings, have some spiked eggnog and give yer mom a call.
Have a nice time next week.
