Morning Discussion

Okay Thursday, you win. It's not even 10 AM, and I've already had two servings of humble pie. One because a friend dominated me in Madden, to an embarrassing degree, in the wee morning hours, and the other because I've finally given in and bought The Wire.

Even in my current state of trying to save as much money as possible, I couldn't pass up Amazon's offering of The Wire: The Complete Series for a mere $82. That thing lists for $250, and even though Amazon normally sells it for $135, it's still one a hell of a deal.

Breckon, the Shack collective, and several others--yes Will, I'm mostly referring to you here--have been recommending The Wire for a long time, but I've never gotten around to watching anything more than the first episode. I guess that's gonna change here.

Also, glad to see I wasn't the only one that immediately thought Spore Hero was a Guitar Hero rip-off. Turns out it's more of a story-based Spore for Wii and DS. Neat?
