Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool, huh?

So I decided to format my main desktop computer and get rid of all the clutter that was left on it from previously. It’s running nice and smooth now! I installed the newly released Windows XP SP3 alongside Windows XP Media Center Edition… sorry guys, not much of a Vista fan yet! Everything went fine until I decided to install Windows Live Messenger. But oh, much to my surprise, I couldn’t install it because I had to install a very critical update through Windows Update. Now what could that be? I pretty much have every update installed because of the new service pack, so what is it that Windows is now pestering me to install/update?

That critical update was Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool of course. I had a good laugh because for me to install Windows Live Messenger which is a free application to use, I have to validate my system just to make sure that my Windows version is legitimate. How do the two mix together, besides the fact that their made by the same company?

Regardless of this fact, I had to install the very critical update through Windows Update in order to install Windows Live Messenger. This is only one of the many annoyances that Microsoft will put for us in order to ensure that everyone is using legitimate versions of their products.

Movie Goers Unite!

I don’t know about you, but a weak ending truly ruins a movie for me.

Another thing that bothers me are people who put their feet up on the chairs as if they are at home. Please people, you are in a PUBLIC AREA, have some common courtesy.

It’s funny how on the ticket it says it starts at a certain time, but in reality, it starts 20 minutes later because of all the advertisements and movie trailers.

But there are good aspects to going to the movie theatre. It gives you a quality of entertainment along with getting your mind off of your daily life routine.

Also, the surround sound is unlike an average home theatre system.

All-in-all, movies are a great source of entertainment but we must keep in mind that it is a place where we pay to enjoy the time, and not to treat it like a pigsty.

Busta Rhymes feat. Linkin Park – We Made It

Upon doing some random surfing, I could not believe what my eyes were seeing on the screen, Busta Rhymes did a collaboration with Linkin Park? I mean we’ve seen Linkin Park (Mike Shinoda) numerous times add rap lines into their songs, but never in the way that Busta Rhymes has in his songs.

After watching the video on Youtube, I must say that I am quite impressed. It’s completely different from what I am myself am used to seeing on the television, internet, or even hearing on the radio. It is people like this that are making a difference in what is considered to be “mainstream” these days. I’m diggin’ it, how about you guys?
