I couple days ago, bought a 2nd hand PS2 system on Ebay. And so I've been spending some time looking at PS2 game reviews on the web, and buying some 2nd hand PS2 games on Ebay.
My main motive for getting this PS2 was to play some new racing games with my friend who comes to visit me during his lunch hour to play racing games on my PC (we're currently playing Toca Race Driver 2 on my PC). Though these PS2 racing games are old titles, they'll be a new racing experience for us (Burnout 3, Toca 3, GT4, WRC4, yada yada).
While looking at PS2 game reviews on Youtube, I came across this review. I know it's not cool to say "this is so gay" but this game review done by these potty-mouthed, Beavis & Butthead-like teenagers really cracked me up...
I love Wanda...
I just found out that of the five WRC rally racing games released for PS2 (WRC, WRCII, WRC3, WRC4, WRC:Rally Evolved), only the first WRC game is available in the NTSC format. The first WRC game was the only WRC game released in North America, and that was way back in 2002.
For a rally racing enthusiast like myself, this discovery is a real bummer, dude.

"More than one commentator has said that the rule of law was the most important development in the last millennium of world history. We have chosen Delacroix’s famous painting of “Liberty Leading the People” to display here as the background of our website because it represents an important step in that development. It represents an important stage in the developing idea of liberty that is so deeply associated with the rule of law in Western civilization.
An early expression of the figure that came to represent Liberty stands atop our Capitol dome in Washington, D.C. She was placed there in the latter half of the 19th century. Delacroix’s painting represents a mid-point in the evolution of our collective imagination and depicts Liberty as she emerges from Man’s political struggles against tyranny.
Of course, Liberty has since found her most famous expression in the Statue of Liberty, which stands today in New York harbor. The formal name of that Statue is “Liberty Enlightening the World”. It is worth reminding ourselves that, as portrayed in that statue, Liberty holds a torch of enlightenment in one hand and a tablet -- a book of laws -- in the other.
Delacroix’s painting reminds us -- Liberty was born in struggle and contest; Liberty is preserved today in struggle and contest. We think it is worth reminding our clients and friends that an important way in which Liberty is preserved is in the daily conflicts in our legislatures and courtrooms and in our acceptance of the rule of law which governs the outcome of those conflicts. We respect and are proud to participate in that process. Recent developments in other parts of the world remind us of how difficult life would be without this process.
On October 28th, 1886, when President Grover Cleveland accepted the Statue of Liberty on behalf of the United States, he observed: "We will not forget that Liberty has here made her home..."
"To think meanly of one’s self is to sink in one’s own estimation as well as in the estimation of others. And as the thoughts are, so will the acts be. A man cannot live a high life who grovels in a moral sewer of his own thoughts. He cannot aspire if he look down; if he will rise, he must look up. The very humblest may be sustained by the proper indulgence of this feeling; and poverty itself may be lifted and lighted up by self-respect. It is truly a noble sight to see a poor man hold himself upright amidst all his temptations, and refuse to demean himself by low actions."

this movie was playing on ABC's Family HD channel on this Sunday morning ... and it's so wonderful to see this movie in a widescreen format on an HD television ... and that Benny Hill is in this movie, how cool is that

This Steve Martin video gem has been up on Youtube since the summer of 2009. It's been posted on Youtube before 2009, but it kept getting removed due to copyright violation. So I'm surprised to see that this current posting is still up on Youtube.

Dance Away: And, Elvis Costello's wife is Diana Krall. Oh god, do I love the music of Diana Krall! And, I know it's an aspiration of Shirley to do the kind of music that Krall is doing. Shirley's mother was a 'big band' music singer (sample "Glenn Miller" big band)

thebestsalvia: Yes, Salvia like Mescaline but it is useful for meditation or tired less. But it's possible when you will be taken Salvia in right quantity.

orthodoxparadox36: I think that album actually saved, well, a few of the most important things in my life. I am eternally grateful for the way you all chose to dedicate your collective creative genius; something which makes it that much more special, not to mention, genuine!
