    US Postal Service worker steals over 2000 GameFly Games

    GameFly is already in a battle with the US Postal Service which means today’s findings can’t be good for the USPS. Philly.com reports that Reginald Johnson, a former Philadelphia mail handler, has admitted to a federal court that he stole 2200 GameFly games — totaling $86,000 in value — before they could be delivered to local subscribers. That’s alot of games! Of course he wasn’t taking them for personal gaming use. He would trade in games at GameStop and get store credit. Johnson was caught because of an investigation as to why so many games went missing in the Philadelphia area. Local authorities caught him with 60 games and a load of Wii Fit units, controllers, a Playstation and GameStop receipts in a SUV and duffel bag. [source via GamePolitics]

    Where the Wild Things Are review

    Where the Wild Things Are is an iconic book for adults and kids. To be honest, the last time I read the book was as a kid in Germany. I clarify this because for the review, I’m unable to strictly correlate it to the book and I’ll be going off of my memory. The midnight screening, was full of adults looking forward to see the movie adaptation of their favorite book as a kid. A few even dressed up as Max or had hats that looked like the monster’s hair. I can’t imagine the difficulty of the task to make a 94 minute film from a book that had 10 sentences in it. Spike Jonze decided to take us on a beautiful, yet very dark ride. Right away the first difference between my memory of the book and the movie is that Max runs away and travels to this land

Amazon has it for really cheap at $4.99 for the mp3 version. While on iTunes it’s $14.99. The iTunes version does come with the Death Cab for Cutie video.

    Review: And Another Thing by Eoin Colfer

    It’s no simple task to take up your pen and attempt to create a story worthy of the hoopiest frood in all of existence. But when asked to do so, Eoin Colfer shows us that he has the kroompst (“Kroompst!”) to do just that. Once again, and for the last time, the Vogons have destroyed Earth. In every dimension, in every version of space, time and improbability, Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz has made sure that humanity has been wiped clean from its ZZ Plural Z Alpha address so that it never interferes with the hyperspace bypass. He has not, however, killed all the humans, as was part of the initial contract. Arthur Dent, Trillian, and their daughter Random, are still mucking about the galaxy. There are also reports that Zaphod Beeblebrox purchased and sold a Magrathean made planet to some Earthlings. Knowing they are out there, Jeltz, his crew and his
