The Saga of Wii...

Since my TV was old and made by a company that's been shut down by the South Korean government, I decided to get a new one so I could (hopefully!) hook up the Wii. Warily searching around the net, I finally decided on this one. It has good reviews from a number of different sites, and so hopefully should do the trick.

Amazon was cheaper than local stores by a good $50 or so, which I figured would cover shipping, but I didn't really want a long delay in getting it. $30 for Amazon to 2-day ship it to me, which seemed good enough... then Amazon tempted me with a Prime account ($70 for free 2-day shipping on everything you buy for a whole year (and I shop endlessly on Amazon), but even more important: $3.99 per item overnight shipping). I got the Prime, thus paid $4 for the TV set to arrive tomorrow. Basically I broke even on that purchase alone, so I get Prime for the rest of the year for "free".

So, maybe tomorrow I might actually get to play! "Play", ha ha. I'm doing all this so I can exercise! Insane. :P

Trans-Siberian Orchestra

Through my credit card I got early access to download a song off Trans-Siberian Orchestra's newest album. I know they're popular with quite a few people, so maybe others would like to hear it as well.

Child of the Night

Feel free to rightclick-save as, or just listen to it from there. I have unlimited bandwidth, so no worries if you want to listen to it from my site.


In other news, it looks like Christmas in my apartment. Amazon is sending Every Single Item in its own box... each box like four times the size of the game inside it (and Wii game boxes are huge! At least the ones that come with platforms/pads!).
