Tivo Multimedia Fun


We have gone thru the process of Ripping almost all of our CD collection to MP3, creating playlists, and serving the files via a file server to our Tivo. This lets us play whatever we want at a moments notice. Its strange to have 12,000 plus songs available to play without touching a CD.

Planetside


I have been playing PlanetSide
almost every night since I bought it. What a fun game. Everquest was getting
very frustrating as I gained in levels. Planetside does not suffer from that problem as far as I can tell. Its so
easy to just jump in and have fun without getting concerned over details. I give it two thumbs up.


Current Music: Nine Inch Nails "Please"

ClayMation


Last night we attended a discussion on Claymation at the Matthews Public Library.
The presentation was given by John Lemmon of John Lemmon Films. I had no idea there was a animation company right here in Charlotte. The whole thing lasted only an hour, but I still managed to learn a few things. Stuff like this always gets me interested in doing more art.

What is the Matrix?


I have now seen The Matrix Reloaded twice. All I can say without spoiling anything is WOW! I really liked it.

I'm looking forward to getting
PlanetSide tommorrow. I have been playing the
Beta for the last week or so and I liked it alot. I don't know if it will have
the power to keep me interested for a couple of years like Everquest, but so
far I enjoy the faster pase.
