  • E3 2010 (Actual) Day 2

    Second day of the show and it proved to be a great one as far as people watching goes. Or I should say, celebrity spotting. I actually had an appointment to see a new-ish product called Yoostar that lets you take your favorite scenes from classic films and insert your own godawful performances into them.

    First day the show floor is open and I spent it locked in my hotel room writing. Thank god I had a large McDonald’s latte and a scrumptious Bubu Lubu–a mexican candy bar with strawberry jelly, chocolate and marshmallow. Breakfast of champions.

I’m talking to myself!” That’ll show [...]

Then again, how can you expect to reason with creatures who spend half the time eating their [...]
