If you haven't seen the Grindhouse trailer, check it out. I like the total low budget feel, and over the top violence and action. These guys are trying to give the video games a run for their money. This probably won't be a big hit, but will surely will become an instant cult classic. Grindhouse

I blogged about this kid before, but now "Xiao Pang/Little Fatty" has created his own website featuring news of his life. He reveals that he's currently 19, lives in Shanghai, and weighs 98 kg. One day someone snapped his photo during a school traffic safety activity and, "Little Fatty's soulful, eye-catching gaze quickly conquered the hearts of net friends, setting off a crazy flood of Photoshopping and making Little Fatty unwittingly into a star known around the world." Click here for a gallery of Xiao Pang images. Also, his site has different articles about the issue of being overweight in China and he has a bizarre story about a 220 lb 13 yr old boy abandoned by his father, who wandered nude into the city in search of food. For images from that story click here.

Vegas was the perfect getaway from moving and renovating stress, although we still need a solid weekend to unpack boxes. But it was well worth it. And we actually left Vegas at least $150 up, and for nickel slots that's a lot of credits won. But the biggest prize won was my own cell phone, which I had noticed wasn't with me, but figured I left it in the car. As we drove away from the casino I searched the car and no cell! So we went back to the parking spot, which was still open, and there she lay on the ground, right where I had dropped it four hours ago... Big shout out to the Vegas crew: MegDiamond, CardinalDan, A-girl, T-Rex, and J-smash! You all rock...

Just had to put up a "check-in" post to say that things are now on a better path, still haven't unpacked, but the lionshare of renovations are complete in the new home. But I have been crazy busy dealing with everything, but this weekend I got some quality R&R with Jsmash and company. Very fine Borg o'spehres!
