World At War: Double XP Weekend!

Xbox 360 Fanboy reports that this weekend they are doing Double XP and introducing 2 new multiplayer modes on World At War!  I’m leaving for the Desert tonight (Going to Ocotillo with Kjo and the crew to ride) but when I get back on Sunday – you better believe I’ll be earning double XP and maybe a bit of Zombie mode all night!

War is hell… unless you’re getting twice the experience. This weekend, Call of Duty: World at War is once again rewarding players with double experience for all multiplayer modes. Not enough for you? World at War is also introducing two brand new game types into its playlist rotation: Team Tactical and Mercenary TDM. Team Tactical is a 4v4 playlist that pits two teams up against each other in random objective scenarios, while Mercenary TDM does not allow for parties in favor of random team match-ups.

New playlists have gone live today for both Xbox 360 and PS3 players. The Double-XP event will run from today, January 30, until February 1. Happy hunting.

 

A Couple of Great Reads

I’m working on a copy of Motley Crue: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band right now, and wow – this is insane.

I borrowed the Slash autobiography about Guns ‘N Roses from Cam a while back, and that was awesome too, but this MC one is written by all members of the band, so you get everyone’s side of the story.  With the Slash book, it was pretty one sided.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone – the intensity and insane level of partying that these guys experienced just blows my mind!

After reading these two awesome stories, I’m going to look around for some other memoirs of crazy rockers…they make for some great reading material!

Life in Pictures

Sometimes instead of writing a long post explaining about the shit I have been up to lately, i realized that I have a bunch of random pictures which show more about my life than the paragraph I could write to describe it.  Click on any of the thumbnails to launch it in a lightbox window:

sunset You can see how rough it has been having to deal
with these beautiful sunsets every night.  Took
this from the backyard the other night.
engine Worked out a deal building a new website for Kenyon
Machine
, a local machine shop in PB who is going to
be working on my car – fixing the brakes (just ordered
new drums for the front – $99 each from Kantor in NJ),
as well as redoing the front suspension and fixing the
oil and trans leaks.
kenyonmachinelogo The logo I designed for Kenyone Machine.  They have
been in business for over 50 years, but still don’t
really have a set logo for the company, so I was
playing around with this one using a rod and piston
to be the I and O in the name.  Pretty Cool? I think so.
dadkubar My dad hating on K State when we were over at the
Kansas City BBQ – didn’t know it had already reopened
after it burnt down 6 months ago.  Good news is they
managed to salvage the Top Gun piano!
chiefonracks My Chief up on the lift at Kenyon Machine.  He had
pulled off all the tires and drums to check out the brakes
turns out the front drums were worn way beyond
tolerance.  Any more wear and there would have been
an accident!  They had either been turned so many times
or just never checked or maintained.
dani Dani, taken on my phone.  The most beautiful girl in the
world.  My Girl.
pontiacwarehouse909 The warehouse in Upland where my ’56 had been sitting.
Right down the street from my parents house. What are
the chances the car I find in San Diego turns out to be
waiting for me right down the street from where I grew up!
hotrod An old hot rod roadster that is always parked in PB.  This
thing is sweet!  Love those scallops…you don’t see them
enough in my opinion.
