Free Cone Day!!

Today, April 17th from 12pm until 8pm participating Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops around the world will be hosting Ben & Jerry’s Annual Free Cone Day. Click here to find a participating scoop shop near you!


I'm going to take this time to promote a great site. Few weeks back I was in the market for a new complete. I ordered a board from CCS before finding skatewarehouse for around $145 after shipping(not bad really)... after the order I was searching google for and came across skatewarehouse and the first thing I see is the "$99 Completes!".. WTF?! I quickly cancel my order at CCS and order the same deck/wheels and upgraded trucks/bearings/griptape/hardware... comes out to $120 w/ FREE SHIPPING!! 
$25 cheaper with tons of upgraded stuff.. can't beat that. Board gets to me in a few days... put together perfectly.. tons of stickers thrown in... even the bearing box and hardware case was included. I noticed there was no allen key and figured it should have come with one(I later realized it wasn't supposed to come with one.. woops).. so I email customer service and they quickly respond and ship out a complete new set of hardware including an allen key and even more stickers than before! I'm not sure how many readers are into skateboarding.. but if you or anyone you know if ever in the market for one.. hands down.. skatewarehouse.com is the palce to go.

Beginning of the End?

Photobucket has announced that MySpace has choosen to "prevent Photobucket users from posting their videos and remixes to their MySpace pages."

Normally I'd say "Yeah, so what?" but after actually reading what Photobucket had to say about the issue, they bring up a great point. Is MySpace going to start killing off what made it such a popular site, freedom. Just something to think about.

April Fool's Silliness

It's that one day a year when you trust things even less than usual. Today the internet is full of scams and jokes... be careful. :) I've found two silly news articles involving the video game world already. If you come across any good ones post em in the comments. I'll try and add more as the day passes.

- Lamb Chop's Play Along for the Nintendo Wii

- Bungie announces Halo Zero. 2009 release date ;)

- McNabb to Retire and more... scroll down.

- Google's new TiSP system... going with the flow.
