Introduction to Dungeons & Dragons


Above is an introduction video to Dungeons & Dragons Fourth Edition with Chris Perkins, Creative Manager. It’s about six minutes long and gives you a general overview of what D&D is all about.  Mix this with the podcast Critical Hit and you’ll catch the D&D-fever just like I did. I’ve always been interested in playing D&D, but never really took the opportunity to do it. After listening to the first five episodes of Critical Hit, I can see how my time in World of Warcraft was wasted!

Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures

I haven’t kept up with E3, but I do listen to the EUCast at SoloSound.net.  I heard their interview with Matt Higby of Sony Online Entertainment for a FREE MMO coming out this fall.  It looks like something I can really get into with my kids. Now I just need to find them a computer besides my personal desktop. :) It’s not The Old Republic, but I guess it will have to do. Keep feedin’ the fanatics!

Waze Your Way Out of Traffic

A co-worker informed me of this very cool service. He basically worded it as “Twitter meets Foursquare.” I would add “Google Maps” to the mix. I’m all over this.  It looks very promising and most of it is automated. Just my kind of app. Find out more by vising Waze or downloading the app from the Android Marketplace.

Real-time maps and traffic information based on the wisdom of the crowd.

SCORE with Soccer Dad!

So; the title can be taken in two different lights. I’ll go with the lighter-light and say that “SCORE… Indoor Sports” is the name of the organization that I’ve signed my kids up with in order to expose them to the wonderful world of fútbol. Alexander really likes American Football, but I’m really trying hard to keep him away from that sport.  Till this very day I’m being plagued with a football-injury to my neck. Plus, I’m Jamaican, what other sports, besides Cricket, should the kids play!?

Magibon is a Magi-non!

This is late as hell, but I have to write about it. I was cruising some of Timothy De La Ghetto‘s videos and I came across this one, “My Date with Magibon”. The girl he was making fun of was so super-powerpuff-girls cute. She looked like the cutest 13-year old you’ve ever seen. It reminded me of Boxxy Babee from YouTube.  I found her channel and began to watch it. The more videos I saw the more I thought, “Something’s not right with this little girl. Why does she have… breasts!? Isn’t she like 8? Why does she speak like a 10 year old, but looks like a teen or young adult… and then looks like a little girl again.” Well; I found out that she was roughly 21 when she did those videos. Very odd indeed, she only spoke in Japanese.

Something about her was hypnotizing though. I couldn’t stop watching the videos. After a while though, I got bored.  It was roughly the same format AND in a language I didn’t understand.  I also found out that Japanese is a second language and she basically “played” us!
