I could go on and on (and on and on…) about how many things are amazing in the following video, but I’ll just let it speak for itself.



Extreme Makeover: Tweet Edition

Twitter’s getting a facelift.

Over the next few weeks Twitter will be rolling out some new and updated features.

  • Easily navigate between @replies, retweets, searches, and lists – now found above your timeline
  • New two column view allows an expanded view of selected tweets- with twitpics, youtube videos, etc viewable without having to leave you twitter timeline
  • clicking a tweet will also give you expanded information like who retweeted it or replied to it.
  • clicking a username will open a ‘mini profile’ giving you information on the user without having to leave your timeline
  • and I’m sure many more changes I am missing

Keep your eyes peeled, change is coming!

Gaming for a good cause.

On October 16, 2010 gamers all over the world will attempt to play video games for 24 hours straight to raise money for their local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.

I am super excited to be taking part this year and raising money for the Children’s Health Foundation in London, Ontario.

Playing video games for 24 hours straight is not as easy as it sounds! I’ll need all the help I can get. I will be taking donations at my Extra Life donation page ($1/hour = $24 is recommended but not mandatory!) and I’d love some people to play with! I will probably be spending most of my time on my 360, so post your gamertags in the comments and so you can help me pass the time with some online multiplayer action (in a future post I’ll post a masterlist of my games.)

Let’s play some games and help heal some kids!

It’s been over two years since I stopped posting on this blog and strangely I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately.

Two years later, I’m really missing this little blog of mine.

I think it’s about time I bring it back.

The highly anticipated first act (Wheee!) of Joss Whedon’s ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog’ is live RIGHT NOW and they have fixed the problem that had viewing restricted to within the U.S.

Act 2 will be out on the 17th (OMG!) and the final act (Denouement!) on the 19th. Be sure to check it out soon because all three parts will be taken down on the 20th!

But never fear! You can buy the three episodes on iTunes and there will be a DVD release as well (more to come on that at a later date).

In the meantime:
