Daily Grind: Decent

Name: Vin (aka that guy who does that thing with computers)
How Vin feels today: Decent @ 11:45:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: Figure out why I feel less stressed on days that I don't actually take an 'anti-stress' vitamin. And no, the vitamin isn't candy (B-Complex).

Music Stuck in Head: Octopus's Garden / The Beatles
''The backing vocals by McCartney and Harrison during the guitar solo were put through compressors and limiters to create a gurgling sound. Starr added the sound of bubbles being blown into a glass of water using a straw.'' - wiki

Stuff to do today:

  • Break down and pre-order Tales of Monkey Island
  • ...especially after reading some online reviews of episode 1 - here and here
  • Continue to wait patiently for full series to be available on XBLA
  • Admit that I am an Xbox achievements whore
  • Watch High School Musical again with Mad, MST3K it into oblivion one more time
  • Yes, you read that right - I want to watch that movie AGAIN (for comedy purposes only)
  • Pray that my kids aren't into this crap when they come of age
  • Having written that of course I'm now officially screwed

Obama added to Disney's newly revamped Hall of Presidents attraction.Obama added to Disney's newly revamped Hall of Presidents attraction.

President Obama spent a few minutes recording his brief speech that will be played when visitors walk into the Hall. The installation of Obama's figure comes after an eight-month makeover was performed on the Hall of Presidents.

Some new gameplay footage from Tales of Monkey Island surfaces online.Some new gameplay footage from Tales of Monkey Island surfaces online.

Looks pretty decent so far although I could have done with a few less 'yars' from LeChuck. Reminder: 6 days left to pre-order. Also, Monkey Island Special Edition comes out on July 15 (after Tales of MI - which is strange).
