This obviously is a day late but I was out all day yesterday so here it is now! As many people do cool things for Halloween, this WoW pumpkin carving contest is pretty frickin AWESOME. I was originally just going to link to some other cool game-related carvings but these blew the WoW ones were even better. A couple of my friends and I carved a pumpkin but being the non-artistic people we are, we printed out a stencil and carved around that instead. We were still pretty proud of ourselves 🙂

Anyway, yesterday I saw This Is It which was GREAT! I can understand why some people may not like it though because it is just a bunch of MJ’s rehearsals for his last tour which unfortunately never happened so it’s not perfect or anything but it still looked so amazing. That would have been one amazing concert. And of course the songs are amazing but the dancing was fabulous too. It was really cool to see MJ really involved with how the songs and dances were supposed to be and how well he knew everything that was going on. And the green screen clips between songs that introduced them was AWESOME! Of course, particularly the Thriller one. Awesome. What was kind of sad though was the turnout. The theatre I went to was basically empty. Sure, it was Halloween, but it was a 4pm showing and wouldn’t seeing that just add to the awesomeness of your Halloween? I would have thought our generation still knew enough about the awesomeness of MJ to respect him. No matter what his personal life was, no one can deny the impact he’s had on music and dance and he is the King of Pop. Of course, as much as I was happy and excited to watch it, the beginning and the end reminded me of the sadness for why they even had to make this into a movie, so you will definitely feel a variety of emotions watching this. Now I need to go Youtube some more MJ songs, particularly those on the “This Is It” album.

And in random but also awesome news, Nintendo announced some upcoming games and DUDE IT SAYS GOLDEN SUN DS! OMFG YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s still TBA but hey! It’s at least ON THE LIST! YAAAAAAAAAAY!
lol can you tell I’m excited? Hopefully it won’t be “temp.” for long!

In other Kotaku news, the british band Kasabian has an interesting promo for it’s new song. And as the title says, it looks difficult but totally awesome. Football Hero in itself is just a cool concept, but for publicity for a song is a pretty genius idea.

Anyway, I’ll be busy out of town next weekend so there may not be a post, but I’ll see what I can do!
