A short, creepy story

A man, at about the age of 30 went to a hotel and walked up to the front desk to check-in. The woman at the desk gave him his key and all, and told him that on the way to his room, there was a door with no number that was locked and no one was allowed in there. So he went to his room, and went to bed. The next night he was curious as to what was in the room, so he walked down the hall to where it was and of course tried the handle. Sure enough it was locked. So he bent down and looked through the keyhole. What he saw was a hotel bedroom and in the corner was a woman whose skin was completely white. She was leaning up against a wall and her head was facing the wall. He stared in confusion for a while then went back to his room. The next day, he went back to the room and looked through the keyhole. This time, all he saw was redness. He couldn’t make anything out, all he saw was red.

At this point he was confused and a little freaked out. He went to the front desk and asked the lady about the room. She sighed and said, "Did you look through the keyhole?" The man told her that he had and the lady said, "Well, I might as well tell you the story. A long time ago, a man murdered his wife in that room, and her ghost haunts it. But these people were not ordinary. They were white all over, except for their eyes, which are red."

The Simpsons, lost it's magic?

Now don't get me wrong, i LOVE The Simpsons. I've been watching them ever since i was young! I've loved the creativity, mysteries, humor and constant references to other well known figures in the real word. I loved how they got a good range of famous people to star in their episodes. I could easily go to school the next morning and refer to a past episode I had watched and instantly the person i was talking to understood exactly what i was talking about! And not to mention the countless quotes from the many episodes were priceless! It was a sort of culture, a fashion statement, a lifestyle!

However, today it seems to have slipped. I rarely ever watch The Simpsons anymore and when I do I don't really enjoy it. It doesn't have that special vibe that it used to have. I used to get all excited to turn on my TV and switch over to Sky1 but now I really don't want to. Maybe it's because they have run out of ideas? Maybe there are other TV shows which also capture the viewers attention a way The Simpsons never have (The Inbetweeners, Mythbusters, The Peep Show, Prison Break).

What are your views on this? Do you think The Simpsons as a TV show has become boring or is it still that great TV show it always is?

Oh and I would like to thank ALL my followers <3 Its because of you guys I will continue posting!

Tribalwars, anyone?

Anyways i play this good little browser game called Tribalwars. Well, to be honest its not really a "little" browser game, it has around 200,000 players! It involves people starting off with a single village, raising an army and then taking over other villages. Wash, rinse, repeat. Players join local tribes and gradually gain villages and their tribe grows and grows. Eventually, if you still have the time and have not quit of course, you can control 100s of villages and have 'Wars' with other players and tribes. Its a pretty addicting game, just got back into it though not seriously. It's definitely worth checking out if you are not doing anything for a few days.

Microsoft launches iTunes rival in the UK

Microsoft has rolled out its iTunes-esque Zune movie and music service in the UK - although not the iPod-esque hardware device that accompanied its launch in the US. Instead, it's relying on the new Windows phones to provide the mobile hardware.

The service, which already has a partial foothold on your Xbox 360 thanks to the movie downloads on Zune Marketplace, is Microsoft's take on Apple's iTunes. You can download and buy MP3 tracks, or stream the entire Zune archive for a monthly subs fee of £8.99, and rent movies to watch on PC or soon-to-be-released Windows Phone 7.

The press release has the details: "When the service launches, consumers in the UK will be able to purchase MP3s from Zune Marketplace and listen to them on their Windows-based PC, Windows Phone 7 or any other device that supports MP3 format. Users will also be able to purchase music videos to enjoy on Windows-based PC, Windows Phone 7 and Zune on Xbox LIVE.
Zune Pass, the monthly music subscription service, will also be available for £8.99 providing unlimited download and streaming access to the Zune music catalogue and will be accessible on Windows-based PCs, Windows Phone 7 and Xbox LIVE."


"In addition to Zune video on Xbox LIVE, consumers will also be able to rent movies for viewing on their Windows-based PC or choose to synch the rental to their Windows Phone 7. Consumers in the UK will also have the option to purchase download-to-own movies and music videos to watch anywhere - on the big screen with Xbox LIVE, their Windows PC or synch it to Windows Phone 7 to enjoy on the go."

"As Zune expands internationally, its music and video service will be tailored for each market. Local experts will programme Zune Marketplace and feature the top songs, videos and unique promotions for each country."

The release also confirms that "the Zune PC software has been upgraded with new features and functionality and will serve as the Windows Phone 7 synchronization client." This means if you want to get one of the new Windows phones with Xbox Live integration and Gamerscore-equipped games, then you'll need to use the new Zune software to sync it.

All part of the great connected future - but it won't get really interesting until Windows Phone 7 arrives. Barring any hitherto-unseen problems with the software, there's every chance it'll be the must-have phone for Xbox owners, and if you can rent movies on it so much the better.

Pretty pathetic, just another money making scheme to be honest :|
