New Car

After six years of loyal service, my 2005 Toyota Prius began to show signs of transmission failure. Considering the car was over six years old and had about 75,000 miles with a failing transmission, I figured that it was time to take Toyota up on their 0.9% promotional APR on a new 2010 Prius.

The new Prius has tons of cool features, and the most advanced hybrid system yet. I’ve already improved my fuel economy over the old Prius by at least 5 MPG, which is great for the environment and my wallet. Of course, the coolest thing about the new car is that it’s “almost-WordPress” blue!

Lost Forever

Van Canto has been wowing listeners since 2006 with what they refer to as “hero metal a capella.” Don’t let your ears fool you, you’re listening to nothing more than five vocalists and one drummer. Even the guitar solo is a vocalist pumped through an aggressive overdrive filter.

If you don’t believe me, or you’re just curious, nothing really sums up the group more than Lost Forever from their 2010 album Tribe of Force.

Tribe of Force is available from record stores, iTunes, and Amazon.

Mortal Kombat Miniseries Green-lit

The Mortal Kombat franchise is getting a boost of realism with a new miniseries that has just been green-lit.

The miniseries was originally pitched with the short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, which brings a rather refreshing change to the franchise.
