Deadmau5 - Arguru (Original Mix)

Haven't posted in a couple weeks, thought I'd at least update with a good song. Should have some more updates coming soon. Just falling behind as usual.

Anyhow this is a great progressive house track by Deadmau5 (pronounced Dead Mouse for those not in the know). Anyhow hope you enjoy, this is not an official video but still goes along great nonetheless.

Enjoy! Arguru (Original Mix) by Deadmau5

Get your streaming video fix here.

A little over a year ago I posted links to various websites that offered streaming videos, tv shows/movies. Since then a few may have disappeared or no longer working. So I thought I'd share my list of new sites for places to find cool streaming tv episodes, movies, cartoons, etc.

If you would like to review my original post you can see it here at http://qoaa.blogspot.com/2007/07/streaming-movies.html.

Here is a current working list of links to various streaming sites showing tv episodes, movies, anime, etc as of the date of this post at least.

So if you're bored, got nothing to do, then kick back and enjoy a movie.




Enjoy while they last.

Taking a peek into Second Life

Second Life logo


I have heard as well as read many stories some good, some bad regarding a game called Second Life. For those that do not know

From 'What is Second Life':

Second Life® is a 3-D virtual world created by its Residents. Since opening to the public in 2003, it has grown explosively and today is inhabited by millions of Residents from around the globe.

You can get the full information from the link above. They offer free account and you can download the client go to http://secondlife.com

So anyhow I've taken a peek for the past 10 days, and at times it can be really boring with seemingly nothing to do, since it's just a 'sandbox' style enviroment. But they do have many live events such as concerts, discussion round tables, classes on just about everything from being a newbie in second life to all sorts of real life issues and such.

A big draw I see is the totally open world and the ability to build and script objects which you can sell for in game money known as lindens. Second life does have real money to in game money transfer system where you can buy in game money or even sell your in game money for real life cash.

It has been interesting meeting new people outside of conventional mmorpg's and have been shocked that some of the stereotypes regarding second life that Ive seen from other gamers from other mmo's are not true, or at least not so in your face as others would have you believe.

Anyhow just thought I'd write a snippet explaining what I've been up to lately. If you are a second life user and would like to send me a message or donate some lindens to a grateful newbie (wink wink) my character's name is Cito Karu.


If you would like to view video tutorials about second life from getting started, building, and just about everything you can check out Torley Linden's video blog on youtube.
