A week in links (Kick-Ass is kickass! version)

A little belated, but here it is anyway! 

This was a really busy weekend.  Friday was just unbelievably crazy.  The bar I work at had a guest appearance from Kevin Lyttle, the guy who sings "Turn me on" (I hear it just about every night and never realized who he was lol).  Never seen so many people packed in a room until…the next night.  CRAZY packed.   

But I guess Saturday was the busiest day I've had in weeks.  My friend's girlfriend had a BBQ birthday party at his house and another pal turned 21 — all on the same day.  Good times, good times…

Kick-Ass was great; I had a blast watching it earlier today.  Nicholas Cage was his usual, funny, weird self, but the greatest thing about the movie was Chloe Grace Moretz, who plays 11 year old vigilante Hit Girl.  Every scene she was in was absolutely amazing!  She was really memorable in (500) Days of Summer as the grown up love guru / little sister, so (no surprise here) she was equally amazing in Kick-Ass too.

If you haven't seen it,  you should!  It's a great movie, I promise.

And hot on the heels of the gambling scandal comes this new news report.  Sucks to be a kid in Korea I guess, but on the bright side…well…is there a bright side to this?

US government finally admits most piracy estimates are bogus
A step in the right direction, but still a long, long way aways from total reform.  Any bad news for the RIAA or MPAA is great news to me.

YouTube – SIMCITY 3000 – MAGNASANTI – 6 MILLION – ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM

This is the story of a man who spent three years planning and crafting the perfect simcity town, reaching the maximum population of SIX MILLION PEOPLE.  The results (and subsequently, the city designs) are downright frightening in their detail!
