I am not really a fanboy of anything. I've never bought something the day it came out. I've been to a few midnight showings of movies, but I never would have gone alone; I was invited by someone else to go with them.
I generally wait until I hear some good things until I invest my hard-earned dollars. Such as the new generation of gaming consoles. My rule-of-thumb is 5 games. When there are 5 games for the system that I want to buy, it makes the console worth my money.
I can probably scrape up three, maybe four games for the Wii that look interesting, but it's more of a party system, and I don't really entertain people in my home. The Playstation 3 doesn't have any games worth playing; at least, none that aren't multi-platform. It's far too expensive for it to be worth investing - despite that nifty little Blu-ray player. Frankly, DVDs haven't lost their usefulness yet, so I don't want to dump money into an unnecessarily preemptive advance in technology. Blu-ray as a storage format? I'm on board. As a movie disc? Not ready for it.
Now the XBOX360 is a conundrum. Lost Planet, GTAIV, Crackdown, Dead Rising, and the Burnout games. There's 5. I'd play them. I like them. But GTAIV is the only one I'd really *buy*. The others are just really good rentals. I think Lost Planet is 25 bucks by now, so I might buy that one. But it felt still too soon, but I bought the XBOX anyway. Did I fall onto a bandwagon? I suppose we'll see.
In the meantime, as promised, I've begun to upload the stuff I've been working on. This little gem is something I composed in Illustrator CS3 in approximately 7 hours over the course of a week. The person is celebrity Keri Russell. I enjoyed working with Illustrator, despite my evident lack of experience. I hope to create more with the program.
