Drinkify

I found a website that lets you enter the name of a singer or band, and it will suggest a drink to accompany the mood of the music. For most artists, it will also play one of their songs. So, below, I have listed some of my favorite artist and accompanying drinks. Click on the links below.
So many choices and only one liver.

Rock
Lynyrd Skynyrd (and the one I am currently drinking)
The Beatles
Led Zeppelin (Plays an interesting remix of Stairway sometimes)
Metallica

FREEBIRD!


Electronic, DnB, Dubstep


Pendulam
Daft Punk
Bassnectar
Skrillex (a very interesting drink.)
Deadmau5


Country


Johnny Cash
Merle Haggard
George Jones




Some other very interesting choices


Rebecca Black
Power Rangers (lsd?)
Barney (marijuana?
Afroman (take a wild guess)

Something like this?


I am sure there are many more interesting musician/ drink combos to be had. Play around with it yourself here, or tell me your favorites in the comments below.

Un Monstre a Paris

It has been a little while since my last update. I had finals this week, so I made sure I got those done first. 

Anyway, I found an excellent French animated film recently called, "Un Monstre a Paris" (A Monster in Paris). They have an English version of it as well, which is the one that I watched first. It is not very well known here in the US and hasn't seen a theatrical release either. I watched it with my 4 year old son, and he loves it as well. It is one of those Pixar type movies, not only in animation style, but that it appeals to both adults and children. It is definitely worth your time to try to find this film. I am not sure you could even find it in a retail store here in the US, so you may need to do some searching online. (If you can't find a hard copy of it click here to download)
                                             Here is one of the songs from the French version. 



The film follows two Parisians who make a little trouble in a scientist's lab while he is away. This leads to the accidental creation of a seven foot tall beast that causes an uproar throughout Paris. In any case, if you are looking for something different to watch with the family, or even all by your forever alonesome, check out this movie.

Final Fantasy 8 and pirates!

What's up bros? So, Final Fantasy XIII-2 is out and I am still playing FF8. Everybody has their opinions on what the best FF8 game is, and mine is 8.

I was 13 when this game came out, but I remember first playing it on a Pizza Hut demo disc. The demo was great fun, but it didn't prepare me for what the game actually was. The demo saw Squall, Zell and Rinoa, running through one of the earlier missions in the game at Dollet, however, I don't believe it let you mess with anything in the menu, junction, GF, cards or abilities.
Pizza Hut introduced me to many great games.

The last FF I played was II for the SNES (really IV) and I didn't even beat it. Otherwise, the only epic games I had played up to that point was Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past (SNES) and a little gem from KOEI called Uncharted Waters: New Horizons (also on SNES). My mom also loved this game, but she mostly traded and discovered new villages, while whenever I played it, I wanted to be the best pirate in the world!
Pirates!

So, back to FF8, I have been replaying this game on the PS3, and this isn't my first replay of it. It is a wonderful game with cheesy humor, major plot twists (some almost too major) and a plethora of magic spells, side quests and GFs to collect. It is quite different than most other FF games, in that each character doesn't have a particular job. Of course you can set it up that way if you wish. No MP this time around either, magic was almost the same as items, you collect individual spells through the draw command, or use GF abilities to make magic from items. Characters would level up often, but if you wanted to stay ahead of the curve, you had to learn the Junction system. For instance, Squall's HP is 1000 and after you junction a magic to his HP he can have much more than that. It wasn't for defense only, you could also assign it to Magic or Strength etc. In this last play-through, I had Squall's STR junctioned so well, that it only took two swings of his gunblade to defeat Sorceress Edea on the first disc.


I could write for hours about this game, but I would rather just play it. I think that is what I'll do. In closing, here is the intro video to FF8.
