Gamer Dad

Have you guys played this game mode? I play on PC and I feel that finding servers for this game mode are few and far between, but when I do find it, I favorite it and try and try to get back in as much as I can!

I truly enjoy Battlefield 3 – I have never appreciated/liked EA shooters previously; I had..well..OK, I have strong opinions about them, but Battlefield 3 has changed my mind about EA and their massive first person shooters.  I have followed all the hype, the videos, the information regarding Battlefield 4 and it is pre-ordered and I am eagerly awaiting Beta!

I hope you enjoy this video! I didn’t do that well, but hey…I had a blast, and that’s what’s important.

Earlier this month, it was reported that director Alan Taylor had begun reshooting some scenes for his upcoming Thor: The Dark World that would feature some more of fan-favorite Tom Hiddleston. It appears that it may have involved more than that.

“Joss came in to save our lives a couple of times,” laughs the director. “We had a major scene that was not working on the page at all in London, and he basically got airlifted in, like a SWAT team or something. He came down, rewrote the…

The True and Secret Story of the Big Rock Candy Mountain

Big Rock Candy Mountain Collage

One evening as the sun went down and the jungle fire was burning
Down the track came a hobo hiking and he said, “Boy, I’m not turning
I’m headin’ for a land that’s far away beside the crystal fountains
So come with me we’ll go and see the Big Rock Candy Mountains.”

Written and originally sung by Harry McClintock in 1928, it appears at first blush to be the story of a child being recruited into the life of a hobo by tales of “the big rock candy mountain”.

Many years after the song was first released, McClintock found himself in the center of a copyright dispute. In court, he proved his copyright by noting the original words of the song – specifically the last stanza:

The punk rolled up his big blue eyes
And said to the jocker, “Sandy,
I’ve hiked and hiked and wandered too,
But I ain’t…

HighBar Partners, a new investor, led this round, joining existing backers Sequoia Capital, U.S. Venture Partners, ATA Ventures and others. HighBar’s John Kim and Roy Thiele-Sardina and ATA Ventures’ Mike Hodges are joining the Clustrix board.
