Xbox 360 noise

So I finally got my xbox 360 bundle yesterday and all I can say is wow. This thing is really loud. Hear it for yourself.

Xbox 360 starting up.. It's louder than my 2 office computers(p4 3ghz) and my laptop combined.

And this is the noise my xbox 360 makes when playing games.

Unless you want to put up with this kind of ear-numbing noise, I would hold off on buying one until Microsoft can figure out a way to reduce the noise level. I'm afraid to even turn it on anymore!

Oh, the shame and pain!!

I haven't been following the world baseball classic all that much until this past Sunday when Team USA eeked out a controversial victory over Japan. I assumed the U.S. would probably face off against the DR for the championship but boy was I wrong. Yesterday, I came home just in time to watch Mexico beat Team USA which eliminated the U.S from the WBC tournament..ugh..lost to canada and mexico?? WTF!!
Anyway, while I was looking for some more info on this WBC, I came across few interesting quotes made by some Japanese players. This was said by Ichiro Suzuki before the WBC: "I want to win in such a fashion that they [the Koreans] won't think they can beat us for 30 years." And after Japan lost its first game against Korea, Suzuki was quoted as saying "I feel ashamed of this defeat."
Tomoya Satozaki, after learning they had made into the WBC semifinals thanks to Mexico beating the U.S., proclaimed "As someone who makes baseball his life -- and this has nothing to do with the WBC -- for the sake of Japanese baseball, we cannot lose to Korea a third time. We are prepared, and I am confident of victory."
I guess a bit of the old Nipponese Greater East-Asian Co-Prosperity nationalism is good for Japan/Korea rivalry, ne? Banzai!!

I've been tagged by SeoulBrother. I was just going to give my usual lame answers but where's the fun it that? So from now on if, jebus forbid, someone tags me and if I feel like I can't provide satisfying answers, I'll just do some drawing of the person who tagged me. SeoulBrother, here's my answer!.. ;d

compassionate conservatism

Following is Bill O'Reilly's response as to why relatively few jobs went to locals in the rebuilding of New Orleans:

"On the rebuilding of New Orleans, you've got to use contractors that can do the job. So, you can't -- you know, if you've got contractors who specialize in infrastructure rebuilding, you've got to bring them in. And the homies, you know, who you don't know -- I mean, they're just not going to get the job."

The racist undertone of bill's respone is just..nauseating..Time for Damon Wayans to reprise his role as homie the clown and pound racism out of bill and those of his listeners who are intolerant of other ethnic groups.
