Silly Hollywood.

I don't know if I'm just going to be commenting on some topics that most nerds would be concerned with. I do have a lot of problems with myself and the world.

Well, the title of this blog is called Nerdcore...

Bad box office sales blamed on Halo 3

It's been the worst October for North American movie ticket sales in years, and industry executives are pointing the finger at Master Chief.

Total cinema ticket sales in North America for the weekend of October 5 were a relatively meager $80 million--the worst results for an October weekend since 1999, reports Advertising Age.

Industry executives are wagging the finger at blockbuster game Halo 3, which was released in the US on September 26, made $170 million in its first day on sale, and at the last count, had made its creators Bungie and Microsoft more than $300 million.

But Bungie's gain is apparently the movie theatres' loss. Mike Hickey, an analyst at Janco Partners, commented, "The audience on this game is the 18-to-34 demographic, similar to what you'd see in cinemas. This could last for several weeks."

The Advertising Age article continues to warn that another box office drought may be ahead, as the release of Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto IV looms in the distance--current ETA the first quarter of 2008.

Don't blame the Chief.

Not a lot of movies were good, Hollywood. Across the Universe was a beautiful musical film, imho.

The game is so good.

Oh man. Here come the Fanboy Wars.

Yesterday, which I believe was Thursday, October 11, 2007, Marvel Comics released an image.

A couple of images, actually.

Sorry, folks. Steve Rogers is still dead.

This is someone different, which could reflect the new design. I'm sure that Steve might not alter his uniform.

I'm sure someone has something to say.

Bungie Leaves Microsoft.

Among other things, I should be writing a term paper comparing the film Alpha Dog and Kafka's The Trial, but I'm here. I'm actually blogging.

For now anyway.

(Because I'm tired from work--I need new shoes. At least I have a vacation this week. Hopefully there's a whopping vacation check, 'cause the manager's a dumbass.)

Working on cartooning homework during the weekend. Hopefully I can start writing something for that term paper.

So, I just read that Bungie, developer of the widely known Halo trilogy, is leaving Microsoft. Not too much of a shocker. I wonder if anyone else really cares.

Here's hoping for a Halo DS. (HAH!)

Wow. This post is all over the place.

Seacrest out.

Sigh. Another blog.

I haven't really held a good blog in two years. I'm going to say I held it really well on Xanga before I graduated from high school. I don't know if I really miss blogging. I don't know if I didn't like doing it anymore or, if I didn't have time for it.

I think I do like the idea of blogging, but if I go back to Xanga, no one really listens, which makes it more of a diary if anything. At least, for me.

Maybe I can get into it again. Blogging.

Maybe not.

I'd like to know how I can get into Area 221. Unless, there's a No Narciso's thing going on.
(You know. Like No Homers.)

I will keep one quirk I had on Xanga.

Seacrest out, true believers.
