Cleaning up the blog house!

So if you had previously registered for this blog you’re going to have to do it again. Sorry but we got killed by spammers and had to clean house on the user database. Hopefully, newly implemented WP spam filters (and more diligent user management on my part) will put a throttle on the bots!

Rockstar Games: Red Dead Redemption 2

So if you were like me, you pre-ordered the game as soon as it became available on Amazon! You probably got the same email that I’ve gotten. If not, you’ll be sad to know that RDR2 will be delayed until Q4 2018. I give you some of the info from my email below:

We have received new release date information related to your pre-ordered video game in the order you placed on October 20, 2016 (Order# xxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxxxx). The release date for the video game listed below has been changed by the publisher, and we want to provide you with a new delivery estimate based on the new release date:
  “Red Dead Redemption 2 – PlayStation 4”
    Estimated arrival date: December 31, 2018
Rockstar Games has not yet updated their website for RDR2 and pre-orders are no longer available from Amazon.com. Cue sad panda.

Here’s the trailer for now …

Star Wars’ Tribute to Carrie Fisher

I was 8 years old, watching Star Wars for the first time in theaters. Princess Leia, and Carrie Fisher of course, was one of the first strong women leads I was exposed to. She showed me that you could be a woman and be smart, lead, get things done, fight for right, and be amazing. Losing Carrie Fisher left me bereft an incredible role model. The tribute Star Wars just released hits it home for me…
