Thou Shalt Not Make Magic 8 Ball Videos

Gabrielle's Magic 8 Ball Video Promo

Last Friday, I pitched the idea for video Magic 8 Ball readings offered by yours truly. My wife, the fabulous Mrs. H., rolled her eyes when I explained my seemingly amusing idea to her. When I asked my brand spanking new Magic 8 Ball, it reassured me that it is certain to be a “cool and fun” idea. Website visitors told me…

My Magic 8 Ball


The amazing, mysterious, all-knowing Magic 8 Ball of truth. You know the deal – ask it a yes or no question, give it a shake, then turn it over and peer into its magic blue window of knowledge. Do you believe in the wisdom offered by a plastic 8 ball filled with blue mystery liquid surrounding a plastic icosahedron of answers? I can’t say I do, but it’s a lot of fun to play with anyway! By the way, I think “icosahedron” is the coolest word since “sargalesis” (look it up).

House, M.D.

House, MD cast

Some of my co-workers regularly talk about the Fox TV show “House”. Having never seen the show before, they tried to describe it to me.

After repeated conversations about House’s off the wall treatment of people in addition to some nice eye-candy in the show (something about a woman called “Thirteen”?), I was rather curious about it.

Collecting a Wii Bit of Dust

Nintendo WiiI was initially planning on sitting this generation of gaming consoles out, but late last November (2008), I broke down and bought a Nintendo Wii. Although not impressed with the system itself or the direction Nintendo has taken in recent years, I just had to play Resident Evil 4 with the Wii remote’s aim-and-shoot capabilities. I also decided to have at Metroid Prime 3 after having played through the first two on my GameCube.

I bought a Wii (Sports Edition), an extra controller (with nunchuck), Resident Evil 4, Metroid Prime 3, and Wii Play. The extra controller was for my wife. I hoped to get her into some of the Wii Sports and Wii Play games. She’s not really into gaming, but we’ve enjoyed some old school games together in the past.
