So it has been a while.

First up, I bought my tickets to go see 311 on June 28th.  They were the first band I ever saw live and after listening to their new album “Uplifter” I am really looking forward to seeing them again.  “Hey You” is an awesome single, but my favorite track is “Mix It Up”.  Amazing old school feel, yet still positive and downright catchy.  Kinda like “Crack the Code” from Evolver.  I’m just glad it is better than “Don’t Tread On Me”.  As much as I love Hexum and the bunch, that album was a let down.

While I’m on the subject of music, the new Taking Back Sunday album “New Again” came out too.  Not bad.  Catchy as hell.  Less screaming which is a good and a bad thing.  It is what defined them as the kings of Emo, yet it got annoying after a while.  I miss Fred on this album too.  The replacement dude kinda sucks and you can barely hear him.  He is no Fred that’s for sure.  No John Nolan either.  Speaking of which, when the hell am I going to get another Straylight Run album?

inFamous was good.  I played through and well, didn’t finish it, but I got farther along than I get on most open world games.  I can actually see myself finishing this one too.  I just really don’t like playing my PS3.  Not sure why.

Let’s see, oh the new Stan Bush remix of The Touch is actually really odd.  I like the slower pace, it works, but what the hell is with the weird not-really-sounding-like-but-trying-to-sound-like-Mike Shinoda style rap in the middle?  It what it would sound like if it was remade by Linkin Park.  not terrible, just a weird way to hear my favorite 80’s rock anthem.

I’m going to buy Prototype today I think.  I really want to play it.

What’s up with this new show called “The Listener”?  I agree with Greg Grunberg when he asked what the fuck on his Twitter page.  NBC must really be desperate.  Though to it’s defense it was a decent show.

Burn Notice is back.  YAY!!!  Great show.  Jeffrey Donovan is a great actor that is so underappreciated in this day and age.  Why he isn’t “truly” famous I have no idea.

E3 was big this year.  Project Natal was a waste of time and energy, but the rest was good.  Halo: ODST looks amazing. Same with Splinter Cell: Conviction.

That’s it for now.
