Updated my NASCAR and Weather pages, and it’s June 6th

Just a real quick note to mention that I’ve updated my NASCAR and Weather pages to include some additional links and Twitter resources.

June 6th.. well, not only is today D-Day, it’s also my B-Day. I turn 40 today! ACK! 😯

The following music video also mentions the date June 6th:

Yeah.. that’s about all I have to say for now LOL. I’m tired. 🙂

Four movies added to DVD collection and music video modifications.

Along with The Dark Knight, I also got the following four movies for Christmas:

As I’ve been doing lately, both the front DVD cover and trailer are included.  Concerning the trailers, I have started adding &fmt=18 to the URL of YouTube videos to download a higher quality video in MP4 format.  I learned of this trick here.  These videos will still play fine in the flash player.

On my Entertainment page, I have corrected a problem that I noticed with the music videos.  It seems that many were removed due to copyright/compensation disputes between YouTube(Google) and Warner Music Group and as such I have had to replace them with alternate videos of the same songs I found on YouTube.  Who knows if they’ll remain or not 😕 .  Do a search on Google for more articles concerning the issue.  Dumb. All they are doing is shooting themselves in the foot.  There are several artists whose music I would have never bought (Bond and Vanessa-Mae as two examples), if I had not stumbled across their music on YouTube and other sources.

In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale added to DVD movie collection

After a few days of not being able to rent it, I decided on an impulse to buy In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale to add to my DVD collection. There are a number of corny moments and some weak acting in the movie by some, but, still, wasn’t too bad. I also made flash video trailer that you can view on the page. I actually created the page on the 2nd but I’ve been at my folks since then so haven’t been in a position to write this blurb on my blog about it. 🙂

Three movies added to DVD collection.

I actually got these for Christmas but just now added the last one to the website. They are:

In addition to the front case cover, I have started including trailers for new movies I add to the site. They are flash videos so if you can view YouTube videos, then you will be able to view these. As usual I don’t really say that much about the movies because if I didn’t think they were good or didn’t enjoy them, I wouldn’t have them. 🙂

STS-118 Space Shuttle Endeavor Launch

On August 8th, 2007, the NASA STS-118 Space Shuttle Endeavor successfully launched to rendezvous with the International Space Station. Big Grin For those that missed it, here’s a video of the launch:

Now there’s something to watch on NASA TV, woohoo!! Green with Envy Let’s all pray for a successful mission and safe return back to Earth.

Thoughts and prayers also go out to the trapped miners and their families in Utah. 🙁
