Peter's Web Links: Cutting up Christmas online
To kick off the holiday season full of cranky shoppers, drunken family members and gifts that you have no use for read up on other people's crappy Christmases and feel free to post about your own. Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like knowing that yours won't be as bad as someone else's, right?
This guy REALLY hates Christmas
Going with the theme of the last link (don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and all that it stands for), but holy crap, this guy thinks that it really sucks and he's linking his feelings with predicting what is real and what isn't in the world of religion. Read it for fun, read it for disgust or read it just to shake your head and then crack a beer.
The new Nintendo Wii's sensor bars are candles?
I have no idea how they did this or why they thought of this, but these guys have discovered that you don't need the sensor bar that comes packed with the Wii. All you need are some candles. To see this interesting “hack,” go to the website above. If you're lucky enough to already have a Wii, do this and let me know how it works for you.
Wii themed gift cards from Target
Type in “Wii gift card” into Ebay and you'll see that people are so excited about the Wii, or selling Wii themed merchandise that they'll put anything up on Ebay. Yes, these gift cards glow, but why would you pay for this? If you buy one or have an answer for me, please let me know.
The Last Laugh band
This is my new project with some of the guys that I played with in another band. While I'm still lookin' for a new project for me to rip the drums on in London, playing guitar and writing for this “across the province” band is still fun. Listen, like, add me to your friends list (or www.myspace.com/peterfromifnothing). Myspace rules.
The Box on Wikipedia
This is an interesting link to put up just to see how many people may actually check it out. This band is from the 80s and could be considered sythpop. They never got the recognition in the 80s that I think they deserved and although many of you may think I'm just a metal head, I have a soft spot for some good non-metal/rock music. Read up on these guys and see what you can sample. I'd say search for the songs, “Ordinary People,” “Closer Together,” “Temptation,” and “My Dreams of You.” Vocalist, Jean-Marc has one of the coolest voices ever.
