XGames 15 - Sweet

Been watching the Xgames over the weekend. It is amazing what some of these guys and girls do on skate boards, motorcycles, etc... Moto X Speed & Style is on now and is very fun to watch. Brian Deegan just lost to his teammate "Twitch" this is a very tight track so not sure anyone is ever going to pass anyone, but still fun to watch...

Have to head to Dallas this week, been traveling a lot lately, and look forward to no travel after this week for a week or so, not really sure yet....

Still playing with the EVO, and finally was able to convert a video to the EVO and have it work. Now to convert some good movies so I can show off my EVO. Using Handbrake to get the conversion done. Did a 14 min vid and it took about 8 mins, so a full size movie would probably take about 40 mins I guess to convert... Will have to try, maybe next weekend when I get home...

Ok back to Xgames16..

Ho hum... Time for a new blog..

I hate this software, now I have a plugin that is failing and I can't seem to disable it. Sucks, I guess it's time to attempt to use WordPress about the only one I haven't tried, not sure why I just haven't.

So I am watching The Obama Deception, there is a full HQ version on Youtube you can see it here.. Video

Also got a new phone, picked up an Andriod phone, the palm pre just wasn't cutting it anymore.. I got a Sprint EVO, and I have to tell you it is freaking sweet, just so much fun to play with. Tons of apps, and soon will "Root" it so I can customize even more.. Soon..

My friend got a Samsung GalaxyS and says it just as sweet, but he has to put up with the AT&T Network, no thanks. Sprint does a fine job for me... Ok back to try to fix this thing...

Long time no blog :(

It's been a while since I bloged last so I thought I would log in and drop a quick note. Will discuss a couple things. Nascar Coke Zero 400 last night, and Ryan Dungey.

Nascar - what a race, it as fun from my point of view. Jeff moved up 3 spots in the standings with a strong 3rd place finish. I thought for a while there he might actually pull it off, but I don't think his car was all that great until longer into runs. So it didn't work perfectly for him. OH well, he still had a great run. Then there was the Carl/Kurt incident, which I thought was pretty funny. Carl just turned right and put Kurt into the wall, simple as that. I think he is loosing some of his good guy image...First the Brad K wreck, now this.. Hmmmm

Ryan Dungey - WOW, this kid is amazing, he won again this weekend at Red Bud, the guy is on a freaking roll. He is constantly beating Chad Reed so he must be good and the SuperCross championship was no fluke. Of course there are a couple guys that were out and still are but he is very impressive. We shall see if he can keep it up.

Ok enough for now... Until next time...

CBS - Survivor

Let me start by saying that it has been years since I watched this show. Some people told me about Russell and I caught part of his first season and decided since I thought he was shafted I would watch the Villains Vs Heroes show.

Now that I have see this last season of "Outwit, Outlast, OutPlay" I can honestly say I will not watch again. The person who won didn't do much of any of the above. The person who came in 3rd did all of that along with the person who came in 2nd and neither win the big prize. It was a close game for Parvarti and Russell for me, but I thought Russell played the game better. Some of his moves thorughout the game were down right crazy, but they WORKED. Isn't this supposed to be what it's all about. Meanwhile Sandra won no challenges, even gave up in most of them and she comes out on top since she 'played' the game the best. Huh? What did you smoke people? Are you nuts? Plus the fact that she is a bitch, and proved it on national TV last night. Argoance is one thing, being a bitch and flaunting it is another, I half expected her to start waving her finger in front of peoples faces... What a joke.

This show has become a popularity contest amongst the players, I am not saying that is bad, but it's not what I watch it for. I love the back stabbing (and just so you know the Heroes did that too, yes you Rufus or Rupert or what ever your name is) IT'S part of the game. If you don't do it you go home in the first weeks. So to say that Russell is evil and a back stabber I would say Hell Yes and I would vote for him. I really think they need to do something about this, or their ratings will continue to fall as they are.

I think Russell was vindicated a bit by winning the 100K fan vote, but as I said he should have won. Too many people mad at him since he got rid of them... Boston Rob, douch bag supreme, saying he would "Kick your ass all over the place" well uhmm, didn't you just try that and it didn't work? Talk is cheap my friend.

And what was up with Colby? He sucked, but managed to stay out of the line of fire, he had no way to win it unless he won immunity, which we knew he wouldn't, but it was a great play up until then.. What was the deal with his comment last night about quarantine? Are they really keeping them penned up as much as he said they were? That ruins the game even more?

Also how come they were really never 'starving' like in the old days? It's like, oh well I guess we will have 10 bananas and 5 coconuts today... I guess we will live? I am no way saying it's easy, but I can remember the shows in the past, long ago, where people looked like they lost 30% of their body fat, now thats the Survivor we know and love.

Please bring it back to the way it was, not the way it is, your loosing audience and will continue to until things change. Maybe after 20 seasons, it's just time for it to go... Who knows, only time will tell...

New toy... #kodak Zi8 HD Camera

So I picked up this new toy today while at Best Buy. I got a Kodak Zi8 and plan to use it to start posting video blogs. Among other things.... I think this camera has it's place, and I am sure I will find it.. It probably does somethings well, and other things not so well... It is charging right now, so I will let you know later... Look for my review of this weekends race via a video blog...

Also went to Supercross this weekend in Houston, pure fun. Walked around the pits and saw some of the riders, and lots of 'chicks'. Seems the 'sex sells' is very much alive in the Supercross arena. I was shocked since there were lots of kids around as this is also very much a family sport, but I guess there are enough of the 18+ year old d00ds that like that stuff... I surely wasn't going to complain... :)...

Ok back to work....Video later...
