Waiting for 2010 #138: Getting Ready for Auto-ber

'Auto-ber'? Don't I mean October? Yes, both. I don't want to go on a blogging hiatus like I did in 2008 (twice). I like writing here. As of late, however, I haven't been consuming much information on the InterWebs to which I can react on this blog.

Sometimes, I'll stumble onto something infuriating, like the douche with the treasonous Facebook poll, asking if President Obama should be assassinated. Ironic that between the years 2001 and 2008, a douche like that would likely have been pro-Administration and accuse that Administration's opponents with treason (and other defamatory, divisive remarks)...and he/she would call French fries treasonous, too.  (And yes, the Bush-getting-assassinated movie was divisively lame, too.)

Unfortunately, I can't give myself the time to blog more about douchebaggery, asshattery, and fearmongering.  I think I've blogged like a broken record on those topics already, with many foreseeable reruns in the future.

Speaking of records, I received my vinyl copy of Backspacer yesterday.  It's a fun listen, but owning both the CD version and the vinyl version made me realize that my turntable is not calibrated.  Tempos are slightly faster, and pitches are slightly higher.  And yes, I've set the speed to the correct record type. I think I'll have to buy a new one in the near future, one with an SD card digitizing option.

Speaking of tech goodies, it would be cool to get an iPod Touch just to play an app called Dungeon Hunter (link will open iTunes App Store).  I ain't getting an iPhone, since I don't need nor want an AT&T contract. Anyhow, Dungeon Hunter is a 3D-isometric p.o.v., hack 'n slash, role playing, dungeon crawler. In other words, it's a Diablo clone. Dungeon Hunter







And we all will probably have to wait until 2011 for Diablo III, unfortunately.  I don't want to preface my 2010 blog posts as "Waiting for 2011: ..." either.
