Things I want to happen during the time left in this year

1. Sony releases a firmware update for PSP owners that add the Friends category from the PS3 and adds the ability to add/remove friends and send messages to friends.

2. Google opens up their OpenID service to all websites.

3. The Zoho Suite fixes their support of Googles OpenID service.

4. Yahoo releases their Y!OS.

5. Myspace finally releases their OpenID service.

6. OpenSocial spec 1.0 is released.

7. Imeem finally releases their OpenSocial application platform.

8. Google Android gets ported to by hackers (maybe the PSP).

9. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is released (I'm sorry, I've become addicted to my PSP, and I feel bad because now I'm neglecting my DS).

10. Barack Obama gets elected president

More of this guy (possibly attempting to kill himself)

William Spencer is officially my favorite skateboarder (and would've been my favorite traceur if I hadn't seen yamakasi).

He's a breath of fresh air and a combination of profane yelling before an insane trick (ingenious).

Charles Hamilton

DJ Green Lantern Presents: Charles Hamilton "Outside Looking" The Mixtape

Creative new rappers are hard to come by now a days, this guy is an exception.

I've been listening to this mixtape for a while now (haven't even heard his more recent ones yet) and I just felt surprised that I haven't posted it up at all, so here it is.

Edit: Check out his blog

Pretty intelligent stuff here

Playstation Home

I'm wondering what all of the hardcore X-Box fans will say when Playstation Home comes out.

They surely can't argue that their new Wii competitor interface even compares to what Home has to offer. Lol, voice chat while being able to share pictures is nothing like walking around in a virtual room, bowling, and allowing friends to view your pictures up on your wall.

and the X-Box 360 is known for being this hardcore console, of course Microsoft is trying to break that stereotype, but I don't think it will work. If anything the console will end up with a slightly confused demographic of gamers.

In comparison to Home where the avatars look realistic and give casual gamers the feel of the Sims, while not alienating the hardcore crowd.

I think Home poses a new ball game for the 360 and the Wii.

Saint-Preux & Danielle Licari - Concerto pour une voix

I couldn't help it, this song is beautiful.
(I first heard it sampled in Apocalypse by Wyclef on his first album)
