Well, with the release of Madden 09 approaching us, the player weapons seem pretty standard as always. With the addition of Rookies there isn’t much new to who is listed and who is not. The only thing I disagree with is that Eli Manning is more accurate of a quarterback than Ben Roethlisberger. I don’t know if its because he won the Super Bowl, but Ben has always had a higher completion percentage, than Eli. Even with his season where he led the league in interceptions. So without further ado, you can find the link to the player weapons here. Madden NFL 09 Player Weapons.

Notable Players:

Darren Sproles – Elusive Back
Joe Flacco – Cannon Arm QB
Ryan Grant – Power Back
Rashard Mendenhal – Power Back
Darren McFadden – Stiff Arm Ball Carrier
Adrian Peterson – Stiff Arm Ball Carrier
Jerricho Cotchery – Possession Receiver
Limas Sweed – Spectacular Catch Receiver
Mario Manningham – Spectacular Catch Receiver

As for all of the other players, its more of the same. Like I said, my only problem was the Eli/Ben thing and that’s because I am a Steeler fan. But, all is well that ends well. Read and Enjoy!

Wow, I can’t think of a better way to get my movie needs on, and seeing the Dark Knight twice. Both times I was blown away. Aside from The Scarecrow the Joker is my next favorite villain, but with the performance of Heath, I must say, the Joker has taken the number one spot. I can’t get his first story about how the scars came about on his face. I loved it, all while showing how sick and sadistic the human behind the paint has become.   Oh and the pencil trick was wonderful.

Although I don’t think its going to warrant him an Oscar for it, but I think it provides a strong glimpse as to how serious and dedicated of an actor he was for his last full movie. Hands down, he created the reality of what people didn’t expect, inciting chaos with words, his fiery passion to destroy the world and watch it burn as Alfred states.

Heath provided the incite and the pathological essence of the creation of a mastermind through psychology. The story illustrated was great for his plot, but he made you believe it could happen. The way he altered his voice and changed his personality numerous times, really made the movie and the Joker unpredictable, as well as the score of music that played in the background as the Joker spoke, making it more and more intense as the scene went on.

The plot with Rachel and Harvey Dent and the creation of Two-Face was great as well. Throughout the movie though I felt as if Two-Face was just there trying to get revenge. I hope they bring him back and if they do, there are a lot of questions that need answers. All in all The Dark Knight, is quite possibly my favorite movie in years. The plot, the characters and the twists of the movie are top-notch. It’s unbelievable, and I would have loved to hear what Heath would of had to say about the character process at all the premiers. Cheers, and enjoy some goodness below.

Well E3 is here and news is coming out the woodwork on various games, design changes, exclusive gaming news and all.  But, I am most intrigued by the new screens that show the new Xbox navigation system.  Apparently were getting avatars much like the Yahoo based system that people can check out and see what were into with a more visual appeal.

I’m not so much excited about it as seeing the screens almost look like it has taken a step back in terms of what it looks like now to possibly what it could look like.   My biggest concern just is the overall feel and all that jazz.  Most importantly though were going down the slippery slope of the facebook battle of watching us at all times and keeping everyone else updated.  There is I believe an option to turn it off, but hopefully they don’t remove it.

Also, a new party update is going to be available with private chat rooms and game joinings to boot.  With me being a hardcore bad company player at the moment I am loving it.  In fact, I would enjoy that 8 people can play different games and all chat togethor at one time.  This is indeed why Xbox live is the social giant that it is today.  It isn’t so much about games as it is a multimedia socialiate sharing moment.

I’m big on abstract art.  I’m big on Georges Braque, and if only I was alive to shake his hand I would make every attempt to do so.  Everything in life has meaning, especially when meanings are distorted into view and produced to mean a different meaning to everyone.

I’m just big on this artwork as it has meaning to me in ways that you wouldn’t comprehend and as after looking at it, it will probably mean something radically different to you.  His biggest contribution to the history of painting was him helping to form the cubism movement.  As it is totally evident in most of his paintings.  Some of my favorite paintings are below.  Enjoy!

I recently heard about WB releasing the 6 minutes of Dark Knight at another screening premier. It was posted online then abruptly taken down shortly after. It took a good half hour finding a version I could watch and, holy crap, is it going to be amazing. The first 6 minutes of this freaking movie is so gripping. It simply starts out with a group of robbers getting ready to rob a high price Gotham Bank, and all of them questioning who the Joker is. While each of them is picked off one by one by another masked robber, we all come to find out that the Joker does his deals hands on.

I can’t believe how well it shows that Heath Ledger plays his character. It’s almost as if insanity and beautiful combine into one warped mind of a character. I however can’t wait to see what Harvey Dent turns into. Just this last week they released the tailor’s including Two-Face after being burned. It’s just going to be crazy, and I can say that I may see this movie more than once opening weekend. It’s going to be major. Linked below are various tailors.
