Goodbye Guitar Hero

The popular video game called Guitar Hero has stopped being produced. The company called Blizzard Inc stopped making the game as the sales are failing. The game was very popular for many years but interest has faded.

The game was fun for awhile and very profitable for the company. The problem was that it was expensive to make and many accessories are required. The company will go on though as it just released the popular “Call of Duty: Black Ops” game.

I can remember going to the local strip mall that had so many stores that attracted youth, games, videos, music back in “the day” I spent a good amount of time at the local guitar center dallas with their unique clientele of odd folks that I felt so at home with. Most likely I never will have that type of relationship with people like that that I met through out those younger years.

Giant Fish Sales

The Japanese have been well known for their love of fish. This is especially true when it comes to the taste of tuna. They have proven their love of tuna when a Japanese businessman paid a record price of $ 750,000 dollars for a prized blue fin tuna. He plans to sell the fish to the customers at his restaurant.

The tuna weighed in at a weight of 592 pounds. The owner of the fish says it is perfect with just the right amount of fat and that the color is very good. I guess time will tell and we will see whether or not the tuna pays off.

It’s That Time Of The Year

Besides watching football on Thanksgiving Day, my of my favorite things to watch is the news about those who wait for a store to open for days before Black Friday. I wonder of these people are really as crazy as they seem. Going through all that trouble just to shop??

I think I’ll do what I always do and that is to stay home and order my things on the internet. Why fight the crowds when I can have what I need delivered to my house. These people are just not thinking to clearly. They are fun to watch though.

Girls and Games

The invention of the internet is one of the most important of our lifetimes. It allows us to access all kinds of information in just a few clicks. It helps us do our jobs, do our schoolwork, and look up every subject under the sun. It also plays another important role; it allows us to play games. My daughter loves that part and the games she likes the best are called virtual girl games. When I questioned her about it, she explained them to me.

She told me that many of the girls at her school play these games all the time. Virtual girl games are typically about subjects that interest girls. They consist of games that allow the player to dress up their character or change their hair style. Other games are about cooking or celebrities. The games are becoming very popular with the girls.

I think it’s good that girls have the chance to play games that interest them. There are many bad things on the internet and I like the fact that virtual girl games allow them to express themselves in a good clean manner. It pleases me that I don’t have to watch everything my daughter does when she is on the computer. I am sure that those of you with daughters will consider introducing them to these types of games.

New Odors Found

The University of California has been working on a long standing problem. That is, how to keep people from being bitten by mosquitoes. What they have discovered is that there are at least three odors that mosquitoes don’t like. The odors essentially block the ability of mosquitoes from knowing that a human is near. This in turn keeps them from sucking the blood they crave.

Scientists are working on the problem of turning this knowledge into a practical compound that can be used by humans to keep the mosquitoes off. I hope they get it working soon!!
