In The Mean Time...

Hey, wondering where we went? No worries, we are just changing format and conducting some testing before we flip the switch. For now, you can get all of our new stuff by clicking here.. We aren't quite ready to switch quite yet, but the end result will be a continuous flow of dark and often day-wrecking content from our regular authors as well as other members. It's a work in progress and we are still working on some design and function stuff, but the updated content is now coming through.

Xbox 360 Transfer Cable Coming?

April 20, 2007 at 12:13 pm by  

I’m sure I’m not the only 360 owner that was a little upset when they heard about the Elite. I can do without every feature on it except one… The 120gb HDD. The thing is though, the thought of transferring the few files I can onto a memory card and transferring them over onto a larger HDD and then saying good riddance to the rest of my files seemed a bit perplexing. No… Actually, I just wouldn’t be able to do it. Would I be forever doomed to the measly 20gbs that came stock with my 360? Surely I will eventually run out of room, I mean I’m down to less than 5gbs right now. What if I run out?

Well luckily it looks like we may be able to avoid all of these problems. “Leaked” photos have surfaced showing a Xbox 360 Transfer Cable. It will supposedly allow consumers to transfer files from their tiny little 20gb drive to a new 120gb drive. Now it wont come with the Elite but perhaps it will come with the 120gb HDD when you buy it separately.…

Ozzy Osbourne – Black Rain

Ozzy Osborne – Black Rain

Artist: Ozzy Osborne
Release Date: May 22, 2007
Number of Discs: 1
Label: Epic
ASIN: B000PA9Q4G

Sobriety kills creativity. It seems to be a rule, or at least with musicians. Nearly every time a musician or band gets sober their next album is far from what previous efforts were. Though their legacies usually remain intact, many times their careers plummet because of it. Well it looks like we will once again get to test the rule, and this time it will be the Prince of Darkness himself who tries to break it.

‘Black Rain’, Ozzy Osbourne’s newest album, is due out on May 22nd. Ozzy recently told Billboard that the follow-up to ‘Down to Earth’ is the first album he has every done sober. Ozzy is infamous for the years in which he would do just about any crazy stunt just to one up the other guy. In recent years however, he has become famous for being the father figure on the reality show ‘The Osbournes’.…

She Awoke to Find Feces in Her Vagina

April 19, 2007 at 9:23 am by  

Jefferson County, TX — That sentence alone could almost turn the strongest of stomachs and the lawyers defending Dr. Donald Long, a doctor accused of performing a botched episiotomy, thought so too and decided to settle with Sara Wallace rather than let a jury hear it.

According to the Wallace’s, on Aug. 16, 2003, Sara Wallace was a patient at Mid-Jefferson Hospital in Nederland. Her physician was out of town when she went into early labor. The on-call doctor, Dr. Donald Long, was called in and delivered the baby in which he performed a third-degree episiotomy, a common medical procedure involving making cuts to the tissue between the anus and the vagina to aid in child birth.

The plaintiff’s lawyer, Mike McGown, states that after the procedure, Dr. Long stitched the wound but neglected to check for a rectovaginal fistula, a hole between the anus and vagina that is often the result of an episiotomy. He also neglected to inform the Wallaces that such a wound could form after procedure.

So you can imagine Sara’s surprise when she started having constant pain in her uterus region and eventually started passing stool through her vagina. …

Virginia Tech Shooter Played Counter-Strike

Oh, boy. Here we go. If you can make it to page 3 of the Washington Post’s lengthy article on the Virginia Tech shooting, you will find the following paragragh:

Several Korean youths who knew Cho Seung Hui from his high school days said he was a fan of violent video games, particularly Counterstrike, a hugely popular online game published by Microsoft, in which players join terrorism or counterterrorism groups and try to shoot each other using all types of guns.

Shit. This is bad. It means two things: First of all, media morons are going to confuse correlation with causality (as usual) and the traction made by the gaming industry over the past few years is going to disappear. Even worse, police officers and students at Virginia Tech are in for a hell-storm once Cho buys a few bigger guns with the loot he made off of his 32 kills, hits his spacebar, and re-spawns at some random point on campus.

And is it just me, or does this guy look a lot like swivel?…

Hot Summer for 360 Ahead!

April 17, 2007 at 2:51 pm by  

Better slap a 3rd party cooler on your 360, because this is going to be a hot, hot, hot summer for the popular console.

I know, I know, “Summer Gaming?” you ask. Yeah, summer gaming. For a change. It never ceases to baffle me that game companies don’t release more games during the summer, you know, when kids don’t have any homework to do and are sitting around the house bored all day. The movie studios long figured out that this was the time to entertain, and it looks like gaming companies are about to stumble into the same realization. And the XBox 360 looks to be the main beneficiary. Let’s make a list, shall we?ImageShack

EA’s “Skate” Looks to DeThrone Tony

April 17, 2007 at 10:48 am by  

[gamevideo 9695 video]

I have been a loyal fan of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater franchise, but it has been like most real relationships. It is great in the beginning, and then, the more you find out about your partner, the more you start to hate them. At some point, you can barely even remember why you ever fell in love with them. But you keep going back, looking to re-capture that initial romance.

That is, until a better-looking replacement comes along, and you get that feeling all over again. Of course, “This time, I really, REALLY love you!” And that is the feeling I get from watching gameplay footage of “Skate”, EA’s upcoming foray into the exclusive gaming world of decks, tricks, and magic lines.

The great thing about the old THPS games was just the chill feeling of roaming a landscape looking for things to grind and jump off of. Eventually, though, the series kept adding so much crap in the landscape that you could jump up with your eyes closed, hit the TRIANGLE, and know that you were going to start grinding something.…

Sorority Sluts 3: Outtakes

April 17, 2007 at 9:42 am by  

[ifilm 2414541 video]

There’s something odd about our True Crime news sandwiched in with funny video clips and entertainment tid-bits. Could it be that these are the chocolate and peanut butter of emotional well-being? Does the tragedy at Virginia Tech make me seek out humor? Does an overload of humor make me want to read about or see something horrific in order to fill my head with meaningfulness? What sort of bizarre blog are we shaping up to be, the Jackass of the Internet?

If we are fucked up, then this website is going to be fucked up. Like Morbid said to me once, “I just want a website that has all of the things that *I* am interested in”. Well, I agree. And this is the sad (and funny) result.

Enjoy.…

Another professor in the Engineering, Science and Math Department who died in the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech. If you travel to the website for the ESM Department, they have a textual memoriam to both of these professors which lingers for 10 seconds before you enter the site. I think this is a lovely touch, very respectful, a way of generating silent contemplation without undue hysterics.

Seeing some faces and getting some names really puts this tragedy into perspective for me. I try to put myself in the place of these kids and faculty during the final moments of their lives, and it makes me feel hollow inside. The only weakness that a free society has is its ability to offer easy mayhem to those who wish it.

Go here to see the Memoriam that flashes up.

Liviu Librescu

April 17, 2007 at 8:10 am by  

Liviu Librescu, 76, the most published professor at Virginia Tech, was amongst those killed during the massacre at Virginia Tech. He also is responsible for using his body to block the doorway to his classroom with his body, as the gunman approached, so that his students could open the windows and jump out. He was fatally shot.

Surviving students of Liviu Librescu have been sending e-mails to his wife, Marlena, detailing his heroic actions.

Librescu specialized in composite structures and aeroelasticity and was published extensively. He also received numerous awards for his work as well as several NASA grants. He also taught courses at the University “La Sapienza” of Rome, Italy, and at the Tel Aviv University in Israel. He was also a Holocaust survivor.

Check out his resume for a little insight on the accomplishments this man made.…

Final Fantasy XIII Speculation

April 17, 2007 at 7:26 am by  

ImageShackBoy, various forums are going a tad crazy with Final Fantasy speculation. 360 owners are especially anxious to know, “Are we included?”. The details are tough to piece together, but what seems to have fired this off is the announcement from Square Enix that there will be SIX versions of Final Fantasy XIII: Fabula Nova Crystalis. There was a slide in the presentation which can be seen after the jump.

On the left you have the eventual product penetration of Final Fantasy VII. They are showing the movies, the spin-offs, the PSP game, the eventual PS2 game, etc. I think they were using this to demonstrate their hopes for FF XIII, and the fact that they are planning the “shotgun” approach from the start.

As you can see on the right, there are two PS3 titles planned, a Mobile (cell-phone) game planned, and THREE other IP’s in faded boxes. When questioned, they did say that other systems will be supported. If FFXIII came to the 360 it would be HUGE for that console.…
