Pilots are one thing — you know, since they shoot the “enemy” — but now doctors will benefit from video game playing, as well? I came across the above scan in a promotional flier at a local hospital in Redlands, CA earlier today. Personally, I don’t know if I’d trust a doctor looking into the first iteration of Nintendo’s Virtual Boy to cut me up…would you?


GRADUATED: Can I Haz Job Now?

grad pic...yee
Four years after high school and a kid on the way, I finally graduated today for a two-year degree! Well…I’ve been “graduated” since February but today was the official day I could flaunt it, I guess. My degree is in “Behavioral & Social Studies” or something similar that doesn’t really translate to the “market” at the moment. Any suggestions on how I can put my Associates of Arts degree — replacing my lost H.S. diploma — to use?

Education, schmen-cion, I say.

E3 Plans…

wishesThanks to the wish-granting powers of the PlayStation Blog meet up earlier, I’ll be roaming through the E3 halls this week! Not sure what exactly I’ll be covering — I will be going ultimately as a biased, enthusiastic fan after all — but pictures and anecdotes from my first E3 will flow freely on these here internets.

Big shout outs to Hip Hop Gamer, All Games, and PlayStation Blog. Oh, yeah. And thanks for the tamales today, Mama!

First Post.

Instead of having the generic, automated “I just got started on WordPress, woohoo!” first post. I’ve revised it to let you, the reader, know what’s up. This is mah blog. I’ll be writing about stuff. I promise to update it from time to time and for it to be — hopefully — better than my first foray into web publishing: Video Game Trackers. Hey! I had just learned basic HTML code on HowStuffWorks at the time…this will be a “no judging” zone.

But feel free in guessing what I was playing at the time!
