She managed "I Love Rock & Roll" (a beginner's requirement) with surprising depth and aptitude. I guess it is an attribute of a musician that you can even pick up a virtual tool and disseminate your abilities across the realm of 1s and 0s.

We decided to take his card so no one else would get it. I called directory assistance, but they were no help.
What would you do in that situation? Daddy needs a new TV!

Sitting around the kitchen, drinking victory beers, the topic of new games came up and I suggested Guitar Hero, ignoring the fact that I don't even own a PS2. After an interesting trip to Wal-Mart to buy food, we grab Guitar Hero. This game is great. Even though it throws everything I know about playing guitar out the window, we still could not stop playing this until sometime after 1:00 am.
Now we just have to get another guitar to rock the duel.

The steps to get this working:
- Set up Flickr account and add pictures
- Get a Flicker API code
- Download Flapi
- Use Flickr's RSS feed to figure out your USER ID and whatever SET ID you want to show up first
- Insert these into the config.xml file
- Now, if you are hosting this on your own server, then you're cool. Just add the HTML object code for the Flash file and you're up and running. However, if you are, like me, hosted on Blogger, the story is a little trickier. You need to edit the FLA source file Action script to use an absolute reference to your XML file.
- This is easy assuming you have Flash 8. I had MX 2004 and had to download the trial in order to fix this. If you want the MX 2004 version, I can send that on your way. You WILL need this action script to compile the movie.
Want to know why you have to use an absolute reference in the AS? Because a new security feature in Flash 7 disallows cross browser data access. There are other workarounds, but they are all under the assumption you have access to the necessary server (which we don't have under Blogspot).
Anyways, check out my initial offering.

After finally getting around to messing with the site again, I have finished uploading up my past movie reviews. When I get the time I have a couple more movies that I wanted to write reviews for, but haven't gathered the energy. Check them out using the navigation bar at the top of the page.

At the moment, I have taken liberty to post most of my movie reviews on the site. I have more, but they aren't worth reading. Also, I'm trying to find the most viable option for posting my pictures, so that section is a hazard zone and you have been forewarned.
