Free Money

Michael: My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator.
Kay Adams: Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don't have men killed.
Michael: Oh. Who's being naive, Kay?
"The Godfather"

For the first time in nearly two months, I had a decent return on the live game front, putting my offline bankroll at an all time high (in profit at least). I had Aces for what seemed like the first time in months, and they got the better of Kings in a very nice pot (all the action was pre-flop). I think I'm noticing my mistakes a lot more now than I used to, but I guess I still need to work on not making the mistakes in the first place.

In my recent hiatus from online poker (for no real reason), I have taken to "The Godfather" game. Since it has been out for a while, I picked it up dirt cheap too which is always a bonus.

I guess the game is a bit like GTA but with less freedom – not that you notice it all that much. It was a great idea to make the game so faithful to the movie (and the book I guess, but I am more or a moving picture kind of guy). Makes me think that when Scarface comes out it might be worth having a look at it. Though I might need to buy a console by then, because these games tend to be better suited to that medium as apposed to the PC. I keep getting lost amongst the keyboard for multiple commands and such. Of course I could just buy a USB controller, but then I would loose the excuse to get the new console.

For the video game enthusiasts out there, one word answer: Wii or 360?

And if I haven't said before, Pacific Poker have one of the best affiliate deals on the market going at the moment. Sure, the site is awful, but with such a good affiliate bonus it is worth it for the free money.

If you have never played at Pacific Poker before and are interested in getting a free start there (with no raked hands requirement) then drop me an email and we can work something out. Seriously – free money. Terrible site, but free money.

Besides the weekend live game, I have been passing the time with DVD's lately, specifically season 2 of "NCIS" and now we have just started season 1 of "Las Vegas". When I first watched that show, I was 50/50 on it to be honest. But since the DVD's were cheap, I thought maybe I would get into it more if I was watching episodes back to back and advert free. That always makes the show better. But when watching the first episode of LV, it really got to me how badly they were trying to cram in character background for everyone into the 42 minutes they had. I've never noticed it being this bad before. Alas, I think it is something that had to be done and hopefully the rest of the episodes are better for it.

Are you aware the color font you use makes it impossible to read as an RSS feed?

Thanks Scott. I will have to change this ASAP. Anybody know how to keep the current template and yet have the text revert to black for the RSS feeds?
