paris album

Curiosity led me to download the new Paris Hilton album last nite.

Here is a running commentary:

track 01 – turn it up
0:07 mark – first thing Paris says is “that’s hot” or “it’s hot” or whatever her catch phrase is. this song appears to be a club track…

scott something

- 0:14 mark – Paris gives a shoutout to her producer, scott storch who looks like Biff from back to the future.

- 0:20 mark – I decided thats about all i can handle.

All in all, the album has it moments.

Beer Festival

Posted on by Ricky in Everything, Movies | Leave a comment

Let me tell you, the beer festival is a great way to spend a sunday. Everyone is jovial and having a good time. Beers are cheap too. Yesterday was the first time I attended the beer festival and I had an excellent time. The drinks were 1$ for 4 oz (1/4 pint) but most of the vendors were generous and give you more then that. Some vendors gave out 1/2 pints for a dollar. Some of the beers I drank were Robert Simpson, Mill Street, Amsterdam, Trafalgar’s Critcal Mass (15% alcohol!), Heritage Brewing’s , loads of Steamwhistle and some others. The beers I listed were the ones I drank near the end, and I can’t really remember what I drank in the beginning.

Anyway, I highly recommend it to those who haven’t been there.

Put headphones on for this one:

Compilation – summer mix 2?

This week has been good for music (for me) so I was inspired somewhat to send out music. You can call this a sorta 2006 compilation, since everything (I believe) is from 2006. This is not a mid-year best of or anything, but just some songs from this year I enjoy.

Wii vs PS3

Posted on by Ricky in Everything | Leave a comment

Being a xbox 360 owner, I really do not have funds to buy either the Wii or the PS3 (although I might get the Wii).. Anyways, if you are debating between these two, heres a brief explaination.

Also, by now you have probably seen what appears to be the coolest game in awhile..
