Lego Batman Keychain Promo

Just found out the other day while wandering in to Gamestop, that there is a promotional offer for Lego Batman preorders. If you pre order the game (which looks to be full of wonderful and awesome) you get one of four Lego Batman keychains. the options are Batman, Robin, Joker and Catwoman. My local Gamestop said they could not get a specific keychain for me, but went ahead and put a note in the computer for a Catwoman anyway. Odds are, if you get in early to pick it up, then your odds of picking a keychain go up dramatically. So, MORE incentive to pick up Lego Batman. *sigh*

Also of major note, the PS2 version of the game is $29.99, while the 360, Wii and PS3 versions are $49.99. I only have a Wii & a PS2 so it was a tough call. Save money and risk waggle controls or have faith in the Wiimote...

Thanks for Nothing, DC

So, I was telling a friend about the upcoming Secret Six ongoing series and went to DC to check any info they had. They have info all right - the first three covers. The issue 3 cover has the 'secret' addition to the team that Gail Simone has been incredibly tight lipped about. So yeah, spoilers. Bummer. I wanted the mystery. If you want to spoil it for yourself, go here. If not, avoid previews for a bit.

True Blood


The viral marketing campaign for HBO's new show True Blood is in full swing. True Blood is based on Charlaine Harris' 'Southern Vampire' mystery series. The main character, Sookie Stackhouse is played by Anna Paquin. (still catering to the geeks, and I love her for it!) True Blood starts Sunday, September 7th at 9pm.

No Fay, No Rain

Fay has decided she can't be arsed with Tampa Bay. No rain, but I'm staying at home and messing around in the kitchen anyway.

Back...with a small delay

I've returned, but now I'm in a bit of a holding pattern, watching to see where Hurricane Fay is going. More posts later (possibly tomorrow). Power willing - I'll likely be stuck at home surfing the internet.
