Either You Bring The Water To L.A. Or You Bring L.A. To The Water

Most of the big video game conferences are over — E3, GamesCom, Comic-Con, PAX — so from here on out, we're in end-of-the-year mode. Most companies will start preparing their year-end lineups shortly, so we have quite a few busy months ahead of us.

We watched a few more episodes of Dexter last night and wrapped up season one. The show revolves around a forensics expert (blood splatter analyst) who is also a serial killer, although he has a code of only killing bad people. It's quite good and just addicting enough to make you want to watch the next episode to find out what trouble Dexter can get himself in — and out of.
