Major Halo 3 Announcements

It's been 5 years since Halo made it's debut on the Xbox.  Bungie just made some huge announcements that I'm excited about.
First, on December 4 during Monday Night Football (ESPN), there is going to be a Halo 3 commercial.  This commercial will not feature game play, but it will be created by Digital Domain and utilizes Halo models and assets to create a photo realistic "movie" of Halo characters.  It should be cool, but it will not give any clues to the gameplay of Halo 3.
Second, Halo 2 is getting 2 new maps.  It will be available in the spring and will only work on the Xbox 360.  Since I have one, I'm excited about this, but it will cost money.
Third, Halo 3 beta is going to be available on the Xbox 360 in the spring and will allow gamers the opportunity to preview Halo 3's online multiplayer and allows Bungie to insure that Halo 3's online gaming will work correctly.
Other than a publish date, this is good news.  It appears that Halo 3 won't be available for at least another year, but it's not forgotten.

A Little Burnt Out

I'm back from Vacation...Republicans lose Congress...Britney Divorces K-Fed.  I'm just a little tired and I've not been in the blog mood.  So I'm making the attempt.
I have a lot of ideas at the moment for ways to move this site forward and make it more fun and dynamic.  It's now just finding time.  Thank you for those of you who have bought something from my website...
You help is greatly appreciated.  I'm back to playing a little poker at night.  I also have a new line of products available on the website.  Check out our Jim Shore stuff.  Anyways, look for things to come.

Sad Week Indeed for Me

This has been a rough week emotionally speaking.
1. Republicans lose Congress.  As much as I hated to see this happen, I was emotionally prepared for it.  I've got my opinions, but really the Republicans have a horrible PR machine and they let the Democrats control public debate.  The problem now is that the Democrats really don't have any solutions.  Their entire message this election was "we're not Republicans."
2.  Britney and K-Fed.  So sad.  We can all stop getting married now, because the perfect marriage is no longer attainable.  I knew things were going bad when Reece and Ryan broke up.  I have to believe this is a great reason to teach abstinance.
3.  Bud Black now the manager of the San Diego Padres.  All the Angels need is to lose one of their core coaches.  Good luck, Bud.
4.  Lost is off the air for 13 weeks.  What a cliff hanger too.
I should start drinking.
