I like it personally. However once traffic picks up, it's pretty much gonna get flooded with new posts you really don't care about.

Is there a 'subscribe' to a thread option?

Just came across this on Youtube. Bloodsport and the original Mortal Kombat are dear to the geek in me. Enjoy.

Have had heavy rains early this year for the past few weeks. So bad to point that I could barely see the road with the wipers going on full blast. Pretty scary when you're flying down the highway at 60-70 mph with a heavy dump truck and trailer behind you.

Has anyone seen Ylvis? Two Norwegian guys who have their own show and quite frankly do, everything. Extermely funny, almost in a Flight of Conchords style of parodying other styles. Their best known work is What the Fox say (like seriously, 70 million YT hits and climbing...) but I prefer this one just cause it's so darn clever and ridiculous all at once.

My Giants are 0-4 and it doesn't look good. The Giants have really been against the cap the last couple of years making them unable to make big moves in free agency. Not upgrading the offensive line and the linebackers has finally caught up with them. On top of that their greatest strength has been a dud in their defensive line. The rest of the division sucks too so maybe......

On the bright side, the Road to Super Bowl XLVI Blu-ray came in the mail today and the Road to Super Bowl XLII shouldn't be too far behind. I'm a bit bummed that XLII is only on DVD despite the original broadcasts were in HD.

I'm still on them! :) Got pretty much a month off from work thankfully.

Went interstate to Melbourne for Xmas with the Spanish side of the family - took us a lazy 7 hours to open presents. Got me all the Game of Thrones books in one massive set (also see: heavy) as well as a sweet set of noise cancelling headphones so I don't keep the lady awake when I play games into the wee hours. Too much food, too much drink and now my waistline is paying for it!

Bah! I wish I was still on them as well!

My holidays were good - used a lot of my vacation time putting the final touches on mini-Adam's nursery.

Christmas itself was a little more low key this year than normal. With the wife being 9 months pregnant, we couldn't really travel anywhere. And all of the out of town relatives didn't come in or had other arrangements (my wife's cousin was getting married in Hawaii). But good times nonetheless.

As for the gifts, since people don't usually know what to get me - they'll give me gift cards. Well since I had a plethora of gift cards and nothing really important to spend them on... I bought a Playstation 4. Don't know how much use I'll get out of it and haven't really played it much... but a cool console to have in my collection.

My holidays were good, saw some family, got some money mostly for the holidays. All my family is in town, so didn't really travel all that much. so was pretty much light.

Mine were pretty good. There was a freak ice-storm the Saturday before Christmas (I literally went Christmas shopping with my boyfriend hours before the storm started), and it knocked out power about two hours I went to bed. The house was without power for two and a half days. Power returned around 3PM Christmas Eve. Before that, I bought me and my dad Taco Bell (my treat).

Christmas week was messed up with all the power outages and whatnot, my grandparents' house had no power until about the next Friday or Saturday after the storm.

The holidays overall were really good. Scored a total of five video games around Christmas- de Blob, Batman Arkham City Armored Edition, Pokemon X, LEGO Batman the Videogame, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

New Years was pretty okay. Got to eat pizza, and drink some pretty good pop

It is my great joy to introduce the birth of my son Adam Homer - we plan on calling him "AJ" (short for Adam Jr.).

He was born on 1/24 at 2:14am, 8 lbs 15 oz. and 20 inches long.

Just stopping by and saying hello! Proud to say I've finished my second semester of college and even happier to say that I passed, especially my math class with an A- (I was horrible with math, lol). Also, shaved my head and to me, I kind of look like Cesaro from WWE lol.

Also congrats Ali on the new job!!!

I have this feeling that Ed Boon will troll us with Injustice 2 at E3 next month.

I'm just stopping by after a long while. I'm just not doing as much on forums as I used to. Sorry everyone.
