Well, here we are at 2013. A New Year. I hope this year goes well. The latter part of 2012 could have been better. Two regrets: theft of my smart phone and the theft of a lot of my video games. The smart phone theft was very inconvenient but I have a new Xperia phone now. An Ion. It's a big hardware improvement over the X10 and runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich. It also runs the Playstation Mobile suite. Right now, there are not that many games on it but I can hope to see more.
But the game theft really hurts in the wallet. I could spend two thousand dollars and still not replace everything that was taken.
Obviously the world did not end on December 21st when the Mayan calendar wheel cycle hit it's finish and started the new cycle.
Anime LA is happening right now. Sac Anime is happening right now. Both look pretty good, and Sac Anime looks especially improved with a really impressive guest list including Kevin Conroy and Grey DeLisle. Also Furukawa Toshio and Aizawa Mai from Japan.
Too bad I can't make either convention.
I enjoyed watching Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I'm still a bit skeptical about turning one book in to three films. It could have probably been done in two films. Well, at least it looks like it will be an enjoyable three films.
I enjoyed Wreck-It Ralph. Probably Disney's best CGI motion picture feature effort not done by Pixar.
Three Kings Day is tomorrow.
The Steam Holiday Sale raepd my wallet again. And now it is having an encore.
