Recipe for a good wedding.

Posted: October 16, 2006 in General

There are certain things that I wonder if I should write about. I have an opinion I want to share, but I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, especially when they are friends, especially when it’s something that is really important to a friend. Namely their wedding.

Planning a wedding is a stack of frustration and stress, and that can be multiplied by family pretty easily. Cara and I had it easy, our parents contributed money to our wedding fund, but made very few demands on us. We are pretty jaded about the whole thing, but we feel that we did a pretty good job, it’s probably unfair to compare anyone else’s wedding to your own (because yours is always going to be better).

Inching closer to the full circle

I, along with a few others that I know are inching closer to getting an Xbox 360. I don’t think we’re quite at the tipping point where there are “must have” games that are 360 (or obviously PS3) only, but this will happen soon.

There are a number of impressive titles available for the 360, and Microsoft is sweetening the pot with the inclusion of Project Gotham Racing as part of the unit price (in November). Also, the HD-DVD drive helps push me towards getting one. We’ll see what Microsoft does when the PS3 gets released, although right now it looks as though they don’t have much to fear from Sony over the holidays.

On Vacation in Tokyo

My review of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.2.5 stars

Fast_FuriousI really liked the first Fast and the Furious. It’s one of my guilty pleasure movies, frankly it’s just a lot of fun to watch. The first sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious couldn’t hold a candle to the original, but there was still a certain fun factor to it. I feel like Tokyo Drift further slides down the sequel disposal.
