MicroSoft guns for the Wii

After weeks of rumors, speculation, leaks, and pre-release shelf-stocking by large retail outlets, Microsoft finally confirmed the release of the Xbox 360 Arcade. With an MSRP of $279.99, the configuration is targeted at families and other non-hardcore gamers, who have largely been turning to Nintendo's Wii console, which launched with a price point of $249 and a strong selection of all ages games.

Available for sale beginning today, the Xbox 360 Arcade ships with a wireless controller, an HDMI connection for hi-def output, 256 MB of memory, and five family-friend games, including Namco-Bandai's Pac-Man Championship Edition, Carbonated Games' Uno, MumboJumbo's Luxor 2, Electronic Arts' Boom Boom Rocket, and Sprout Games' Feeding Frenzy.

Microsoft also announced plans to expand the console's family-friendly selections, including Looney Tunes cartoon downloads and online games featuring characters from movies like Shrek and shows like Blue's Clues, The Backyardigans, and Spongebob SquarePants.

"In addition to offering an incredible all-in-one package for families to get right into the fun, the Xbox 360 Arcade system features the industry-leading family settings, which allow parents to control what their kids are watching and playing -- and we know how important that control is to families around the world," said Microsoft's corporate vice president of global marketing, Interactive Entertainment Business, Jeff Bell, in a press release.

The holiday season will also mark the release of several new family titles, including Bee Movie: The Game, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rck, amd Naruto: Rise of a Ninja.

Personally, the first thing *I* think of 360 is seriously hard core games like Halo, Splinter Cell, etc. NOT "family friendly fun" games. But oh NOES. How DARE someone else try to *steal* profit from Microsoft!! *rolls eyes*
SHE'S UP!!!!!

sadly, cloud cover *here* prevented my eyeballing her climbing on a tower of light to the heavens (but I played back the NASA TV recordings :D)

and I *GASP* almost missed it. had a really bad night, didn't sleep well, woke up at like 11:10, stumbled into the shower and was still nekkid when I realized the shuttle was going up (and I couldn't very well run outside sans clothes)

/finally comes down from space high
attempted to make bbq pork roast in the slow cooker but I messed *something* up

I did cook it on high for two hours, drained (changed bags), put the meat back in, dumped the sauce in, cooked for another hour.

but... the pork isn't fork tender, its a bit on the dry side. correction, its a LOT on the dry side

meh, thinking of getting another boston picnic butt while they're still on sale and trying again tomorrow

any suggestions as to what I did wrong??

You Are a Werewolf

You're unpredictable, moody, and downright freaky.
You seem sweet and harmless, until you snap. Then you're a total monster.
Very few people can predict if you're going to be Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde.
But for you, all your transformations seem perfectly natural.

Your greatest power: Your ability to tap into nature

Your greatest weakness: Lack of self control

You play well with: Vampires

lack of self control?? more like lack of giving a *bleep*
just got thru watching a VERY interesting show on the Food Network called 'Edible Enemies'

Which repeats: Fri, Oct 19 10:00 AM ET

explains what the major 8 allergies are, what happens to people who ingest them (or are touched by someone who has ingested them, like that girl up in Canada who everyone thought she died due to kissing her boyfriend's peanut butter'd mouth)

What schools/colleges are doing to help better serve/protect their students

what some *restaurants* are doing (creating books that list the allergin ingridgents on the top of the page)
(tho honestly, if you DO have major food allergies and do NOT tell your server, its on you)

the clearer packaging guidlines going into effect

and yes, when they were talking about wheat allergies, I IMMEDIATELY thought of you [ profile] ctorres!!

they also said some allergies could be masked by other symptoms, like migraines which made me think of [ profile] allyson13

glad they're repeating it!

and they never let us forget it!!
my friend Steven rides a motorcycle. Sometimes he wears his brain bucket, sometimes not.

I'm watching the 11pm news last night and this is the lead story.

PALM BAY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) -- The driver involved in a fatal crash on in Palm Bay on Thursday evening has been arrested for what is now his third DUI offense.

Jose Ramon Cabrera,40,  faces charges of DUI manslaughter, felony DUI, DUI with serious bodily injury and DUI with property damage.  He will be booked in to the Brevard County Jail where he will face a judge on Friday afternoon.

Palm Bay Fire Rescue responded to the crash involving a vehicle and a motorcycle in which one person was killed and a child was injured.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Minton Road and Emerson Drive at approximately 7:38 p.m.  Preliminary information indicates that Cabrea,  the driver of a Honda Accord, struck a motorcycle driven by an unidentified male who was traveling with his son, approximately 10-years of age. 

The boy's father, who was not wearing a helmet was pronounced dead on scene and the child, who was wearing a helmet was airlifted to an Orlando hospital.

one of the images on the news was the boys shoes laying scattered on the street.

poor kid, riding home with his dad. now, dad dead and kid was airlifted to Orlando Children's Hospital. All because someone just HAD to drive drunk yet again.

the motorcyclist had a green light. he impacted the car's windshield.

it does not matter when its bike vs car. car always wins

for those who ride, please please wear your helmets. if you don't, PLEASE make sure your donor card is signed!
This weekend, KSC offered free admission to all Brevard County residents. All you needed to do is provide proof you lived in Brevard. In theory, you were supposed to donate canned goods but they weren't enforcing it.

The day started off quietly due to threat of rain but as the afternoon wore on, the crowds came (tripping my fear of crowds)

we (Judy Rosbury and myself) took the bus tour, skipping the LC 39 Gentry but looking at the Titan rocket and then taking the bus to the ISS Complex where they prep the modules to be taken "upstairs"

we also got to walk thru the ISS Modules to see how the astronauts live, including their shower cubby and the hydroponics section.

shockingly, due to going to KSC many times, about the only thing I wanted to get from the Space Shop was the calendar, but I didn't feel like waiting in a line half the length of the store for it. I'll order it online.


On the way from the Titan building to the ISS, we got to see Discovery leaving Bay 3 and rolling out to the VAB!!!!!

when the Orbiter lands at KSC, there's a blue line down the road for the tractor driver to follow to bring it back to the Bay for recovery and installing new instruments, etc.

They'll stop the tour buses but the pax will get an EXCELLENT and upclose view of the Orbiter on the ground!!!

Can't wait!!
this question was posed by the guy who delivers the newspapers as we watched the last of the white light slip off the surface of Luna.

it was BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

/does happy snoopy dance!!!!!

perfect clarity. just wish the stupid moths were out of the way (or I found a place to watch that wasn't so light polluted)

sadly, no pics.

was everyone else able to get out (or peer thru a window) to see it??
