Gotta LOVE Weird Al

Just saw Weird Al's newest video and almost pissed my pants laughing. Check it out for yourselves:

And yes ... that IS Donny Osmond

Another round of updates

Well, I'm still waiting on GameSpy to post my review of NASCAR for the PSP ... but in the meantime, there's a lot more updatin' going on. Here we go:

First, over at GameSpy:

Things will be really crazy with my GameSpy work over the next week or so as well, as I've already written up one new DS review (MechAssault: Phantom War), and I got in a package with six more games to review this week. I'll probably be linking more stuff next week (of course).
Next we have a piece I did at All Games:

Yep, I shot out an early post on the Wii details, even before a lot of other game sites had the news up. I'll have more showing up on All Games on a regular basis now, especially once things start to get settled down.

For those of you living in the Jacksonville, FL area, pick up a copy of the Florida Times-Union tomorrow (Friday) to see my first piece for the paper in the Lifestyle section. Here's the kicker ... it's NOT about video games or comics or any of my "usual" pop culture stuff. My debut for the T-U is a write up on the opening of the Pirates of Penzance musical at the Players By The Sea. Expect to see more from me in the coming weeks and months ... and watch me branch out a bit and bring my unique personality into more "mainstream" entertainment coverage.

Obligatory updates and the like ...

Y'know something I hate? I hate when I keep promising to update more often, and then circumstances stop me from KEEPING that promise. Well, for what it's worth, I AM trying to do better. Anway, on the the latest updates ...

First off, it's been a busy week or so for writing. Need proof?


And over at Games Radar:

There's a LOT more coming down the pike too. Everything from Godfather for the 360 to Bomberman on the PSP. I'll post links as soon as they're up.

On to other journalism adventures ...

For starters (and for those keeping track), I did get a call back from Nintendo about a staff position at Nintendo Power. I made it to the final round of consideration, but just missed out on it. Ah well, congrats to the nameless soul who will be starting there shortly. I won't sulk about it though ... I'm starting immediately writing for Scot Rubin and All Games, where I will be providing news and occasionally popping onto the radio show as well.

And on a local front, I'm starting writingnext week for the entertainment section of the Florida Times-Union, The newspaper here in Jacksonville. I'll be covering everything I can on a freelance basis. For my first trick, I'll be writing up a review piece of a musical this coming weekend.

Anyway, so that's a quick update on the current state of affairs at the moment. More to come ...
