It's Dangerous To Confuse Children With Angels

Phew! After yesterday's red ring scare on the Xbox 360, it turns out that it's still functional. It just shut down automatically due to overheating. It is warm out here, and we had been playing Gears of War 3 and LEGO Star Wars III: Clone Wars for quite a bit, so it's understandable. More Gears of War 3 coming up!

Tonight we're going to watch The Debt, which we've been meaning to check out for a while. Figured we'd better hurry up before it disappears from the big screen.

You know what? I totally forgot that I had an early access code to play Battlefield 3, and now it's open beta. Better start the download!
