I have been so lazy over the last month or so due to my ridiculously low resistance to stress that I have literally done no good for anyone other than myself and my employer. Mostly just myself.

With all of the problems going on in the world right now we really just need to focus on how we can help our fellow man.

Living in Florida, one of the bigger problems is right in my backyard. The Deepwater Horizon spill is taking its toll on all of the Gulf, from Louisiana to Florida. Many animals have already died, and many more deaths are to come.

Lets just try and take a step in the right direction, and regardless of whether or not fixing this particular issue is something that interests you, just try to help someone out today.


Here are a few ways you can help, at no extra cost to you.

Shop on Amazon through HopeVote to donate a percentage of your purchase to the Deepwater Horizon Spill

Get your COAST Save the Gulf! t-shirt and 100% of the proceeds will be going to the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana and the Gulf Restoration Network.

Yesterday at E3, Sony announced that the new PlayStation Move would be available on September 19th.



When first released, a Move bundle will be available for $99. The bundle will include a Move controller, an EyeToy camera, and a Sports Champion game. The Move bundle will be available with the original PS3 console for $399 as well.

If you're not into the bundle, each Move wand is going to cost you $49, and navigation controllers, which don't seem to be coming in the bundle, will cost you $39.

The whole thing just gets a little ridiculous when you hear that some of the game ideas for the new add-on are going to require multiple Move wands, some will require the navigation controller and a Move wand, and pretty much everything requires the EyeToy camera which is another $30. If you take all of the controllers required to be able to play all of the games that are to be released on the Move, then it's costing near $170 for just one person.

I can't wait to hear more about how the games are performing, and I can't wait until they redesign the Move Wand. Currently, the wand has a big pink ball on the end of it, making it look like some kind of sex toy. No thanks.
