Diablo 3

Today Blizzard announced that they are working on Diablo 3. The gameplay videos look amazing. Take a look for yourself. I haven't bought a video game in years, and I still play Diablo 2. I think I see my next game coming up soon.

James Dobson Criticizes Obama's Theology

Here's an article about James Dobson's criticisms of Barack Obama's theology. If he and Oprah have the same theology, then it's pretty obvious he's pandering to get votes, not that McCain is any better. Don't be fooled that Obama is a theologian.

Dobson Accuses Obama of 'Distorting' Bible

I feel a post about social consciousness coming on...

Donaghy Says Refs Fixed Playoffs

He may be just trying to lighten his sentence or take others down with him but I've been saying this for years so this gives me a feeling of vindication. If these allegations are true, the Sacramento Kings really did beat the Lakers in 2002, and therefore should have gone to the finals. The NBA is a joke right now, especially with the calls from this year's finals. It won't change until we stop watching (just like not buying gas). If you like basketball then give professional wrestling a chance.

Here's the story. It's obvious Donaghy is talking about the Kings/Lakers series.

No More Gas

I read about this guy who decided not to use gas for a month because of high gas prices. I think he's more in tune with what will make a difference than the email forwards you receive calling for a one day ban on gas. If we all decided to make drastic changes in the way we travel it would send a much bigger message to oil companies and the government (who receives more money in taxes than the companies do in profits, by the way).

Ultimately it comes down to a change in our lifestyle if we want to save money. If we can't afford something, don't buy it. If it means we have to move in order to save money, then move. This is a huge reason for so many foreclosures (people buy houses they really can't afford) and why the definition of middle class has changed (a "middle class" lifestyle today is nothing like it was even twenty years ago). We are a people with more than we know to do with, but the problem is we have become accustomed to having more so we waste it all on things we don't need. A recession might make us live leaner, but it might just be good for our character as a people.
