Bush Booed

In what must be an unprecedented event in American history, President George W. Bush was openly booed when he appeared at the Washington Nationals baseball game on Sunday (3/30/08). The President appeared to throw the ceremonial first pitch of the season - a remarkably good pitch, I understand, where Presidents are concerned.




President Bush appears to what could generously be called a mixed reception.

It's remarkable how everyone involved manages to ignore the crowd.

And I thought I wouldn't have anything else to post about this month.

Yes, We ALL Can

There probably isn't anybody who's going to read this who isn't well aware of my support for Barack Obama's campaign bid. With that said, a video was posted on Youtube today interviewing a class of students from the Bronx High School of Performance and Stagecraft and their reactions to Obama's racial speech earlier this month.

Anyone who's attended high school in the last decade should be duly impressed by these kids and their teacher. Obama's right: the American people are not the problem; they are the solution.

Zombie Shop

Addicts of Facebook may recognize the acronym AZDI. The American Zombie Defense Initiative, a large-ish community on the popular networking site, is a North American-based group dedicated to, you guessed it, fighting off the inevitable zombie apocalypse.


The point is, awhile back I had the time to entertain myself with such nonsense. Here are a couple of AZDI-related photoshops I slapped together.

An Escape

Ben Croshaw - "Yahtzee" - isn't what one might call a well kept secret in the online community. In fact, the man is hugely popular among the tech-saavy masses, and for good reason. Satirist and Vlogger, Yahtzee was picked up by The Escapist Magazine last August after scouting a few game reviews he had posted on Youtube.


His reviews, released every Wednesday under the title "Zero Punctuation," are concise, witty, and often scathing looks at popular games, and are a must-see for any gamer out there.

In other news, game developer Sora's long-awaited Super Smash Brothers: Brawl was released last Sunday on Nintendo's Wii console to much fanfare. The release has smashed multiplatform sales on all consoles by a considerable margin, and has seen consistently high reviews.

Now all Nintendo needs to do is fix the online play. In the meantime, feel free to post your friend codes: 0259 0003 9268
