Whatever you do this weekend, make this your soundtrack

WARNING: What follows is an off-topic post. Get out while you can, man! Looking for some fresh music to listen to this weekend? Do you enjoy what the kids call “Electronic Dance Music”? If so, skip over to my personal blog and grab a one hour continuous dubstep mix I put together. Before you say, “Eww, dubstep,” know that I weeded through hundreds of what I would agree is m...

Off-topic: This science fiction demotivation poster is all sorts of funny

I understand this has been floating around message boards for a while, but I still chuckled upon seeing it. Have a great weekend, everyone.

What have you done so far this summer?

I hate to break it to you—especially you students. But summer is almost over. A few weeks more and it’s, as my friend Billy used to say, “Back to school, back to school.” That said, what fun things have you done so far this summer? And what do you plan to do with the remaining few weeks? With exception to trips to quick trips to Capitol Reef and Star Valley, I’ve been on ...

Official Tron message board: Did you see it?

I shirked work this morning to watch an early bird screening of Tron: Legacy. AWESOME. You planning on seeing the movie tonight? If so, swing back here after you watch it and let us know what you thought. As for me, I think it’s better than The Matrix, and a lot more fun. 1000x better than the original Tron. You?

Off-topic – Movember 2010

Each year I participate in Movember, a worldwide moustache-growing movement to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Association. You can learn more about Movember and donate to support a great cause. My team has already received nearly $800 in donations and we’re hoping to hit $1000 before the end of the month. I know this is a bit off-topic ...

Overly personal poll: Do you pray?

I posted a similar poll on my blog this year and thought it would be fun to gauge the “religiocity” of Infendo readers as well. So tell us, people of the world: {democracy:122} Whatever your beliefs, happy Sunday, everyone.

Summon all the power-ups you can muster, Infendo: I’m attempting a marathon this weekend

For life insurance reasons, I starting running a couple of years ago. Nearing 30, I figured it would be a good way to defer the eventual kiss of death and help support the misses and koopa kids for as long as I can. Since then, I’ve gradually increased my distance. After accidentally running farther than I had originally intended, it was obvious I was close to marathon distance. So I thought...

Off topic: who’s seeing Scott Pilgrim today?

For those of you that aren’t in the know, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a new Edgar Wright film based on the Scott Pilgrim comic book series. The series was heavily inspired by games like Zelda, Ninja Gaiden, River City Ransom, Sonic the Hedgehog, and many other memorable titles. I might be seeing it with a good friend of mine today. How about you?

Off-topic: Who’s excited for the World Cup?

WARNING: This post has nothing to do with Nintendo, let alone video games. Proceed with caution. Is anyone else stressing about how they’re gonna shirk work over the next month to watch as many World Cup games as possible? I am. I’ve got World Cup fever bad this year, and I know my video game intake is going to suffer as a result. I’m sure my livelihood will too. So is anyone els...

Mario Kart Wii used in High School drivers ed

Kotaku unearthed something interesting today: Vail Christian High School in Colorado has been using Mario Kart to teach students the dangers of driving while distracted.  Students are challenged to play Mario Kart Wii while sending and receiving text messages. “I ran into a lot of things and it was very stressful,” said 13 year old Alli O’Brian, “”I don’t think...

For the love of Lord Stanley, someone stop him

My friend Sidney Crosby Andy Marino is the king of NHL ’09. I watched in disbelief as he went undefeated last weekend against some of the best NHL ’09 players I know. Marino stifled offensive juggernauts and danced through the neutral zone against defensive monsters, putting the puck in their nets with stunning frequency. He talks a lot of trash, too. As much as I hate to do this here,...

Off topic: Who’s the better singer: Mark or Tom?

As one of the catchiest popular punk bands in history, I was stoked to learn of Blink-182’s regrouping and subsequent new album this summer. Dudes write fun riffs and I digg their playful style (especially during hot summers), even if they’re not as “hardcore” as pioneers of the genre. So to take a time out on gaming, I ask that you indulge me, kind Infendo reader. Which is...
