Good choice going with the PC.

You mean like in the 90s when Jordan whined and got calls? Dude, the only thing that's changed is that the NBA calls more fouls in general. Stars have always gotten star-treatment and home teams have generally always gotten the ref bias.

I'm still just going to stick with my PC for most of my gaming (mods, better graphics, etc) and just use my 360 for sports games. I have no first-hand experience with Sony's online play (been told by friends that it's horrid and lonely), but I can definitively say I'm always impressed with Xbox Live's ease of use. I get the DRM stuff (and that "borrowing games" video from Sony was LOL), but it's no different from what I experience now with Steam, really. I just wouldn't want to pay $60 for the game AND have the DRM issues.
As for me, I just recently rebuilt my system. I harvested the existing case, PSU, blu-ray drive and only upgraded MB, CPU, RAM and GPU. My system was 6 years old before the upgrade and still ran Skyrim and Far Cry 3 on the same settings graphically as the Xbox 360/PS3. Now I get Ultra on everygame but Metro: Last Light for less than $500. Oh, and I forgot to mention that when upgrading, I got Steam game codes from AMD. So I got (before their release) Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, Hitman: Absolution and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon for free with my purchase. So take $200 off the price there just in games. Oh, and the MicroCenter I purchased them from added a code for Assassin's Creed III because I chose them for my purchases over Newegg or Amazon.
I have the PC hooked up to my 60" TV, so it's just like using a console anyway (and almost every game supports the use of Microsoft's 360 wireless controller with a $20 dongle), except that I can also do ANYTHING else (including watching TV/movies via MediaCenter) on it. All of the wallpapers I produce for the blog are done on the same machine that I game on.
Anyway, just my two cents. I know a lot of console gamers are timid when it comes to switching to PC, but my 360 hasn't been on since I rebuilt my PC. I'd at least look into it when the time comes to choose. If the title is going to be released on PC, you can bet that hardware companies will be putting more packages together that include them as a bonus for buying their component.

Be careful when purchasing Sharp. They put out a bunch of junk TVs right before prime purchasing time (Super Bowl, Black Friday, etc).

Agreed. If size is the main thing, not features, then a projector is best.

I'd hardly call the school paper calling him out "not batting an eyelash." Also, don't forget about all those lovely "damn Catholic" comments by Gee.

I actually disagree with that. I think it was a classy act to cancel given the media frenzy that would have surrounded the commencement. It would have taken away from the real purpose of the event - to honor students.

I simply stated that many of the rights we held dear seem to be less and less "rights" anymore. That was because you snarkily requested I come up with some i believe are under attack. I agree with your statements regarding free apeech, wholeheartedly, however I don't really appreciate YOU taking the very large step from a religion-based belief regarding homosexuality and associating it on the same level with joining the KKK. You literally just proved my point. It doesn't matter what we hold dear (sexual preference, religious preference, etc.), if someone doesn't agree they will generally be ok with that being mocked or demeaned because they don't value that belief. There's a big gap from oh, let's say, a person saying "I believe homosexuality is wrong because it says so in my religion" to "being anything but a Caucasian is wrong." People may try to equate them to further their cause, but it's a poor argument.

Man, I always hated being skins. I'm one hairy dude, and it was really uncomfortable showing off the pelt to the ladies back in the day. Thank God my wife is cool, I'd have a complex.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Honestly, the first thing I||
Honestly, the first thing I think about when I hear "no homo" is The Lonely Island. Andy Samberg and his comedy group made a whole song called, you guessed it, "No Homo." I heard it a few years back when the album came out and, I'll be honest, I laughed a little. I fully support the NBA for a fine, but I think the bigger issue in his interview was his use of "Motherf***ers." That's inappropriate in any setting when it comes to business and warranted a large slap on the wrist.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I agree that the manner he||
I agree that the manner he said the statement (as a joke) led to a more offensive understanding of the statement, however I disagree that his view that being gay would be wrong has anything to do with being offensive. He's allowed his right to an opinion.
Perhaps he holds a conservative Christian viewpoint on homosexuality? Are you trying to then say that he can no longer hold to his beliefs simply because they don't mesh with everyone else's point of view - that it would be offensive? Perhaps, to him, homosexuality is offensive? Regardless of our viewpoints (and whether most believe they are right or wrong), we have a right to them.
While I believe that the statement was stupid and immature, I don't beieve it warranted a $75k fine. But that's my opinion. Obviously, Stern had a different view - and that's his right.
I think the problem we're running into with the homosexuality issue is that, despite the best efforts of those who believe it's a natural sexual orientation, a majority of America does not subscribe to that belief privately. However, because they DO want to (publicly) be accepted, they tip-toe around the issue and offer up minor support. We see these examples of slip-ups all over the place.
It's sad that we're in a country that was built on diversity of opinion, but unity of spirit, and yet we can't seem to allow ourselves those rights we used to be so adamant about.
That all being said - and I'm sure parts will be taken completely out of context or misunderstood - it is never acceptable to allow hatred/abuse in the name of an opinion. Simply not agreeing with someone's sexuality choices is not hatred - it's simply a different opinion. As long as you're not infringing on others' rights, you should be entitled to their own opinion.

100% correct. If the government had stepped in and asked for a punishment, that's one thing. A private entity with a reputation they'd like to keep (and have a hard time doing so) can do nearly whatever the hell they like to enforce that standard.

I've already noticed a few glaring editing errors. I'll have to fix them tomorrow - I'm tired. I'll let you all know when the final version is all cleaned up.

I agree. Not all of the movies can be Wrath of Khan or The Undiscovered Country. For what it's worth, I find the reboot interesting. I like seeing his alternate Star Trek universe. I'll be interested to see if he finds a way for them to force their way back into the timeline of the originals by some "fate" plot device.

I'll try it out and see what it looks like. If I like it, I'll post it in a reply for ya.
EDIT: Nice suggestion. I REALLY liked what I saw when I removed the glow from the text. That's a good critique and the reason I love posting these on here. Here's your reward:

I'm stuck in Columbus. And aside from the annoying Buckeye fans, it's actually a pretty awesome place to live. Job market isn't bad, the cost of living isn't crazy, and my taxes, while high, aren't outrageous. I love Michigan, but the State of Ohio itself isn't worth hating - just tOSU athletics and their worst fans.
