I pretty much bought the UGH I saw because I felt I should, but these sound like something I actually want.

I still think when you add "one per case" + "chase" + "collector interest/back in the day feel" that these won't last past the first person who sees them and has any idea what they are.

And as far as the UGH stuff, I'm sure depending on where you shop and how often, the availability of these was different, but I never saw them that often.

I love the idea if it weren't for the fact I think they will be a struggle to find.

I think Chewie hit it on the nose.

Unless the vet says something we really aren't expecting to hear it looks like I'll be getting one of my rats euthanized tonight.

Rats are like little dogs which is cool, but they are like little dogs that only live three years which is not cool.

NFL changes overtime format for playoff games
Team winning coin toss must score touchdown to win in sudden death

Honestly, I'm not liking it.  I think it should either be sudden death or a full OT quarter.  Anything else makes it look almost as ridiculous as OT in college football.

AMEN!!!!!! I hate gimicky rules

Eric Casilias (no idea how to spell his last name) was on ESPN today and he told this story:

He and his son were over at Eric's sister's house and she is a Yankees fan. She walks in on Eric's son drinking from the faucet from his cupped hands. She says "why don't you use one of my cups?" and he says "because they all have something about the Yankees on them".

I thought that was great.

The repainted Troopers a underwhelming, but the Kun/Droma set is what I love about the CP line. To get to add those big name Sith (if you're into EU) to your collection is awesome.

I still am buying the way I have been for most of my colletcing life so the total I buy is the same, but with the stores being so dry what I find is I'm not as excited about Star Wars toys in between buys. So instead of thinking Star Wars all the time, I'm concentrating on something else I collect that I can actually find to buy on a relatively frequent basis.

I feel like over a long enough period of time I could say, " whatever, I'm not gonna hunt, I'll just buy when I'm in a store anyway if I see". So the down time in the middle could lower my interest in the long run if that makes sense.

How is this packaged?

I watched Hurt Locker this weekend. Very good, but of the three Oscar nominees I've now seen (District 9, Up, Hurt Locker) I put it third.

Sounds like a good reason for there to be a delay.

I picked the book up yesterday. Now I just need to find the opportunity to acually read it. I've got Darth Bane 3 waiting too.

Is this still a rerun tonight and does anybody know when they will start running new episodes again?

They were talking about the Vikings interest in LT on our local sports radio station today. I can't say I'd be against it, but I don't know if I can deal with having to listen to him whining about things all the time.

The "I'm a movie critic and I'm smarter than you moron viewers" is very annoying.

However, I seldomly see a Best Picture winner and think "that wasn't good". I had no want to see Slumdog Millionaire last year. Then I saw it and it was excellent. And this year, no matter how much people say Avatar was good, it does nothing for me. I still have't seen it.

And I am just naming stuff off the top of my head, but as far as box office success winning recentlyish: Return of the King, Forrest Gump, Titanic. I'm drawing a blank now, but it isn't like they poo poo everything popular to look "smarter" than us.

Sometimes I think they should have more catagories, like Best Drama, Comedy, Action, Sci-Fi. Dilutes the awards a bit, but really, Up was up for Best Picture and Best Animated... so if they can do a best animated catagory, then I think they can open it up a bit more.

I don't like that either because, like you said, it dilutes it way too much. I don't think any award show will ever be perfect, but I think the Oscars are as close as it gets. With that being said, I'm a huge movie buff. I love movies from the 30s, 40s, 50s, etc. So I think I may be biased myself the opposite direction if that makes sense.
