SLOTW – Revivals!

So sorry for the MORE than tardy edition of SLOTW!

I apologize for the long extended wait.  It’s been a tumultuous few weeks, so I’ve been needing to hammer down links this time.  Preparing for EXPCon AND ShadoCon can be hard work sometimes.

Well without further ado, here are this week’s links:

Jetpacks?  On my Spartans? – Since Halo: Reach came out this week, there has been a media blitz covering it’s launch… but apparently, the Britains had a bit of fun of their own with the launch?  Trafalgar Square + Jetpacks = SWEET!

Take a Ride on my lawn chair – MONSTER LAWN CHAIR!!!  And why yes, it DOES breathe fire!

and finally….

Sad, but inspiring story – well this is a different sort of sweet this week, but on a sad note.  One of the popular developers at Relic Entertainment (Company of Heroes) was hit by a car, and died.  But it’s truly sweet when you realize that he also saved his pregnant wife.  He swerved to take the full impact of the crash, saving his wife’s life.  David deserves a manly salute for his bravery.  I salute his bravery and compassion.

There’s a memorial fund setup for Brian.  If you wish to donate, please click here.

Back online and in Jacksonville!

OMG O_O! We’re back in business, folks ^_^! Glad that Zeke got the system back up and operational ^_~. Anyways, like the title suggests, I’ve finally found my way over to jacksonville and, let me tell you, this place is HUGE O_O! I haven’t even covered a third of this city yet and I’m already overwhelmed XD! All the saame, though, iut’s home now and I’m really glad to be here n_n.

Anyways, expect more soon from us here at aniRAGE and, with any luck, I’ll be getting a new mic here soon and will start doing some webcast ^_~. Much love to all of you crazy cats (and people, too ^_~).
