My Games, My Opinions.

My First Best Buy Camp Out Experience.


Heading down to the Oxnard Best Buy last night, I came upon a quite peculiar scene. It seemed that over 50 people had already been standing in line. I arrived at 8:30 on Saturday, planning to camp out.

I went up to the first guys in line and asked, "When did you get here?" They succinctly responded "We got here around one."


After camping out for the next hour until Best Buy closed, I noticed another anomaly. It seemed that many people in front of the line were calling there friends and inviting them out there. The 40 people that were in front of me quickly grew to 60 people. And of course, me, knowing that only 54 were allocated to this store, I was starting to get pissed. This number quickly fluctuated between 9 and 10 PM, with people coming and going.

I was expecting a bus to eventually come by and drop off 30 people who would cut in line. Shit.

Luckily, this did not happen, and after a fun night of watching family guy and playing gin, they started handing out tickets. And who got the very last premium system ticket?


All in all, an awesome experience, would do it again.

I recently came upon this snippet from my June 2005 issue of OXM. How this slipped by the editors (both grammar and contentwise), no one may know.

"Written and directed by famed movie director John Singleton, 'Fear & Respect' is set in the violence-torn streets of L.A. and features not only Snoop Dogg, but more gang-bangin', drive-byin', and gin and juice sippin' than you can shake a blunt at." OXM June 2005, Page 44.

It's only a matter of hours now.


In 21 hours, I will be on my way to the Best Buy near my hometown to camp out for the night.

Can you guess why?

Wish me luck!

Halo 3: June 6?


Can you believe it? Gamespot has already said that the sequel to the award winning blockbuster is due June 6, 2006. Anyone going out to pre-order it?

Link it up.
