America’s Psychic Challenge (yeah I know, but it’s actually kind of interesting)

I also watch The Daily Show / The Colbert Report, and I’ve been catching reruns of The King of Queens which is surprisingly funny.

I’m so glad my MythTV box has two tuners and a 300GB drive.

Lesson 94: Dreydel

I learned to play a new song: Dreydel. The new GarageBand is a bit unstable though, I played the song perfectly twice (which was rare, it took me like 30 attempts to play it all the way through while GarageBand was recording), only to have it beachball upon clicking the stop button.

The piano in the symphony ochestra jam pack sounds significantly better than the “portable grand piano” Yamaha is so boastful about in my keyboard, so I guess I’ll keep using GarageBand for now. Plus, the new “align to notes” feature is pretty nice for when my timing is slightly off.

Virtual Console

I finally broke down and bought some Wii Virtual Console games:

* Sonic the Hedgehog 2: I have this cart for the Genesis but it only works about 20% of the time. Now I can play without worrying about it freezing up! And I don’t have to play the whole game in one sitting, since the Wii saves the game state when you return to the home screen.

* Toejam & Earl: Panic on Funkatron: We had this for the Genesis a long time ago, it was pretty fun. Carly is still mad I sold the original cartridge years ago.

* Dragon’s Curse: This is the TurboGrafix 16 sequel to Wonderboy in Monsterworld which Jay and played on the Genesis a few years back.

* The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past: We were a SEGA house growing up, so I didn’t get to play this on the SNES. I’ve attempted to play it on emulators a few times but it’s always a hassle. Maybe I’ll actually stick with it on the Wii.
