This review is from: Little Lightning-Ep (Audio CD)
I'm not even a country guy - I'm firmly rooted in my grunge / metal youth, but for whatever reason these guys just make me happy. they're really s*** with marketing though as they make it near impossible to actually buy their music haha. it's sold out on amazon, it's not on itunes, their shop on their webpage link is broken / undeveloped. they may make good music but they really need a manager or marketer to get their stuff out there. if anyone knows them, pass the idea along to actually sell your music ;)

1.0 out of 5 stars that's terrible I'm sorry should be the title of this double ..., September 13, 2014
that's terrible I'm sorry should be the title of this double CD from Joe Derosa, but then if you've ever listened to his comedy or him speak long-form on radio or podcasts, it's him in a nutshell... just kind of meandering and not really going anywhere, while sounding like a whiny ex girlfriend who just wants to be liked but can't help but being annoying and pushing people away and burning all her bridges.

I get the sense Joe cared more about what his black friends would think than of actually putting out some honest comedy that spoke to the audience. I rather listen to my Arminian neighbor across the hall try to tell me knock-knock jokes in his native language than attempt to hear any of this Derosa comedy. This CD is likely some of the worst material ever recorded onto a bit of plastic and I get the impression that I've heard it before - from all the not funny coworkers I've ever worked with who are trying to get laughs but just obnoxious and everyone hates.

5.0 out of 5 stars I laughed, I cried, I spilled my yogurt down the front of my boxers, July 10, 2007
Jim Norton is a dynamic genius who is enjoyed by the rich and famous from all walks of life. atheletes such as Derek Jeter, Randy Johnson and Alex Rodriguez, thespians Robert Reed and Kate Beckinsale, Musicians Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie, Radio Mega-Stars Than and Sam of the award winning than and sam show, and single bald overweight nothings such as this author. Jim's book is great reading anywhere fine books are read though i reckon that Mr. Norton would prefer all readers enjoy his book (published by simon and schuster, as all readers would need to know) on the toilet while dropping a deuce. gracias senor norton you meaty breasted zilch!

1.0 out of 5 stars 360 refuses to install and likes to delete hardware drivers, July 6, 2007
going on 6 hours to install. brings back memories of trying to install vista. horrible interface and touchy with other programs already on the computer and unrelated to nortons products. install somehow deleted drivers for my dvd/cd-rom drive and cause a whole other online scavenger hunt to track them down. the online helpdesk from symantec does not function and brings back error messages when trying to get assistance and the phone number is an endless cycle of press random numbers to go to random offices only to be disconnected or left on hold endlessly. if i could kill with a thought, symantec staffers would be dead right now.

1.0 out of 5 stars Goalie AI will make you insane - garbage goals abound !!!, December 31, 2006
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: NHL 07 - PC (Video Game)
the gameplay is what it is, it's the same as its been since back in 91 for the oldschool sega genesis. you can still swoop down to the faceoff circle and then cut across the goal line to score on a wrister/backhand, and you can still burn around everyone with the speedboost button. the computer opponents still seem to not have the same laws of physics that the player controlled figures have: turning, stopping and changing directions is still labored for players while the computer opponent is cutting back and forth like they were wearing sneakers on pavement with no lag or difficulty at all.

the differences in this game than previous years is that gone are the days of senseless checking and bowling everyone over. now checks dont really knock anyone down at all regardless of difficulty setting. even on easy my 6'5" 240 pound defencemen bounces harmlessly off a 5'8" 165 pound forward. when you add that the computer toons seem infinitely more successful with clutching and hooking and pokechecks than the player is, and regardless of player ratings for the Player controlled goalie every shot that makes it on goal will likely go in, they passed up inproving player AI for challenge, and went right on to nerfing player controlled teams while uber'ing the computer team. it looks like a pee wee hockey team playing against the detroit redwings. difficulty level doesnt matter for computer scoring, they're going to get anywhere from 5 to 8 goals. the difficulty level only dictates how many you're going to be able to score. at beginner / easy you can outslug the computer and win 11 - 5. on difficult its going into overtime and could go either way at 6 - 5. the hardest setting means you're going to wring your hands and throw controllers cause you'll be lucky to keep possession of the puck for more than 3 seconds and the score will be 0 - 5.

the salary cap is right but signing players is a chore and the contracts arent' reasonable or lifelike and its easy to tork around with the settings to keep a good team (i went to the roster management and transferred every 85+ euroleague player who's salary is 0.7 million or less so ive got a team that averages 86 to 94 and a salary cap number of 28 million of the 44 million max. if you are over or close to cap, no problem just send that high priced veteran down to the minors cause there's not waivers or minor league salary constraints. the last annoyance is that there's some sort of success based statistical upgrades but i havent actually earned any. im playing as pittsburg and overachieving on my team goals which were basically avoid last place in-conference, yet i still have yet to earn a single upgrade point (im bummed cause i want to dump them all into goalie training so maybe my player value 92 goalie could stop an actual puck on occasion - save percentage hovers around .760 giving up 4 to 6 goals out of 11 or 12 shots a game on average).

basically i travel a ton for work and have nothing better to do on my laptop now that SOE ruined Star Wars Galaxies so i can tolerate a poor game. if you can bear the hair pulling out aggrivation at the goalie who cant' stop anything or catch a cold, then this is your game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Listfully wishing for more Nirvana, April 28, 2003
This review is from: One by One (Audio CD)
(...) a few of the songs are catchy and i don't mind hearing them on the radio but none of their CD's are the kind that i can throw into my CD player and listen to straight through from the first song to the last song. dave grohl should stick to playing drums (...)

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and peppy, January 2, 2003
kinda like blinks first album when they were good and before they got naked. i like it it's good to drive to and do the night at the roxbury thing with the bobbing and the nodding of the head and the singing along. chicks dig it and it's good scrump music too so put it in your humpday mix. i especially like track 9: riot girl, it reminds me of a chick i used to know she was boss, but i digress. go buy it, or if you're cheap or don't believe me download it on kazaa or morpheus it's no sweat off my back. i bought it and i like it alot. so :p

1.0 out of 5 stars TERRIBLE: I WANTED A ZERO STARS BUT IT WOULDN'T LET ME, December 30, 2002
This review is from: NHL 2003 (Xbox) (Video Game)
I have been an EA sports nhl fan since the 92 version on sega genesis when there was only playoff hockey, no player names and no line changes. i could only get federov into the lineup in detroit if yzerman got hurt. every year i would run out to get the new edition the day it came out and then play it for days on end. i did the same this year with 2003 and i was completely disappointed. it was such a step backwards that i ended up keeping my 2002 version and took a couple hours to create rookies and trade players to make the rosters current and i went to the local game craze (video game / hobby shop) and traded my barely used 2003 in for hitman 2 which by the way IS an incredible game (if you have both 2002 and 2003 like i did trade in 2003 and get hitman 2). i am going right now at 10:30am on 12/30/02 to get segas xbox release of nhl 2k3 and i will most likely be donating my ea 2002 hockey to my buddy who got xbox for christmas but only has the 007 and halo for it. nhl 2k3 ALL THE WAY!

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent attempt at what copying Bush, Creed, etc....., April 15, 2002
This review is from: Wonderful Nothing (Audio CD)
They're not overly talented at playing their instruments and there's no groundbreaking producing on the album but it's decent and a couple of the songs, most notably "the question", "on my own" and "i know" are the type that get stuck in your head if they're the last song you hear as you exit your car. sure they sound somewhat similar to bush, creed, live, goo goo dolls, and about four-dozen other bands, but how diverse and original can you expect a genre of music which utilizes 3 chords, the guitar-bass-drum formula and teen angst. they're not exactly blazing an original trail but not every band can be A Nirvana, Beatles, or a Metallica in terms of inventing a sound. if you want a good album which you'll find yourself humming and singing along with grab it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly above average book: perfect for the coffee table, July 31, 2001
If you're looking for quality pictures of many area landmarks such as the Eastman Theatre, County Court Building, University of Rochester, and the George Eastman House, than this is the book for you. if you're looking for in-depth historical facts about the sites and city or information on the architects and builders- you won't find it here. there's no information and the title is misleading since there's hardly any photos of gardens; not that rochester is a big garden town but cobbs hill, highland park and several other flower areas are not included. this is basically a glorified picture book and though they're really nice pictures, i don't think the book is worth the ... that both ... and local bookstores in the Rochester area are asking for it. if you have a birthday looming and are in a pinch to come up with gift ideas, then toss this book title out. otherwise you'd be better spending your money on a different book.
