The Manic Arachnid Swings Into The Mouth of Hell

Daily Wii Fitness Age: 25

  • What I'm Watching/Listening To/Reading:
    • Great "C.S.I.:" with Hodges' murder game. Nice bit of humor in what has been a very dark season.
    • One of the funnier episodes of "The Soup" this week. Testuclear Holoc***!
    • The new great show I discovered today? "Ninja Warrior" on G4, also available on G4 On Demand. If you love seeing clips of Japanese game shows, you'll love the real thing.
  • Random Thoughts/Links:
    • Bad NFL picks segment (last week: 9-6-1, 1-2 on Thursday, overall: 37-47-3):
      • San Francisco (+10.5) vs. Arizona.
      • Denver (+1.5) vs. Chicago.
      • Cleveland (-3) vs. Houston.
      • Jacksonville (-8) vs. Buffalo.
      • Kansas City (-5) vs. Oakland.
      • New England (-24!!!) vs. Philadelphia.
      • New Orleans (-2) vs. Carolina.
      • N.Y. Giants (-7) vs. Minnesota.
      • Baltimore (+8.5) vs. San Diego.
      • Seattle (-3) vs. St. Louis.
      • Washington (+3) vs. Tampa Bay.
      • Tennessee (-1.5) vs. Cincinnati.
      • Pittsburgh (-16) vs. Miami.
  • Daily Rant:
    • What is with movies using Baltimore as a substitute/addendum for DC? I'm about 20 minutes into Live Free or Die Hard and they just jogged from the Washington Monument on St. Paul Street in B-more to the FBI HQ in Washington and then immediately back to a chase scene in front of Baltimore City Hall from where they then fled into the 395 tunnel, which wasn't actually the 395 tunnel. They give the address for Baltimore City Hall (in DC, mind you) as Maine and Constitution. Those streets don't actually ever intersect. Could they even try? The car crashes were pretty sweet at least, I guess.
