My hearing is slowly coming back, and everything is almost back to normal. We just realized that yesterday's Slash concert was the kickoff to the North American leg of his world tour, which made the gig somewhat special. There was a live recording being offered after the show, but we passed on it — something we probably shouldn't have done in light of this information.

PAX is upon us. We'll have somebody on site to check out some new titles, so keep your eyes peeled for some coverage. Prior to that, we have a trip to LA to check out Call of Duty: Black Ops and then off to Seattle to pay Microsoft a visit.

Not much TV time today. We only watched some Rescue Me, but tomorrow, Covert Affairs should be available via On Demand.
