This Just In – The Internet Is Popular

Friday, January 16th, 2009

The Internet has now surpassed all media except television as a news source, according to consumers surveyed in December 2008 by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press.

In December 2008, 40% of respondents said they got most of their news about national and international issues from the Internet, up from just 24% in September 2007.

Pew said it was the first time since it started surveying that consumers relied more on the Internet for news than on newspapers.

Television was still the main source for national and international news, at 70%.

Left 4 Dead

Left 4 Dead

For starters it’s Valve. Not enough? Well you get to kill Zombies! That’s always fun. Lots and lots of zombies. And you can play in co-op mode with 3 of your buddies. Setting out to do for co-op gaming what Counter-Strike did for team combat, Left 4 Dead is an ambitious survival horror game. Running on the Source engine, Left 4 Dead leaves four armed survivors of a world overrun with zombies, and they must fight their way out to escape the outbreak. It’s a blast. It’s like I’m Will Smith in I am Legend.

The Star Spangled Banner – Marvin Gaye

Saturday, August 16th, 2008

If you’re like me you’ve been staying up way too late the last week watching the Olympics. Specifically Michael Phelps, or Aquaman as I like to call him, break just about every swimming record known to man. Phelps has so far acquired seven eight gold medals, that ties surpasses Mark Spitz who won seven gold medals in 1972.

It’s very rare that you get the opportunity to watch the best person in the world do their craft and so I am in awe of him. So in Phelp’s honor goes this post and I have included for your listening pleasure the Marvin Gaye version of The Star Spangled Banner. You likely have heard it recently in the Nike Basketball commercial.

Favorite Things 2007

Monday, December 24th, 2007

Each year Oprah does a “favorite things” show where she shares with the audience some of her favorite things of the year. It’s the loudest, most insane crowd Oprah gets each year. I’m looking for that same reaction here :)

These are some of my favorite things of 2007. Keep in mind I have an 18 month old so I don’t get out much. And yes I live a simple life (some may say pathetic) but good coffee and a burger are things I really do enjoy…
