I need to get new sheets for my bed

I only have one good set that I really love for my bed at the moment, and to be honest, that set is starting to wear.  Ok, it’s been wearing for a while.  So, I think it’s time that I seriously consider getting a new bedding set.  Thus, I am gathering this list of potential sets.

Soho Bed-In-A-Bag® – Bed in a Bag reg Sets – I rather like the blue on here.  The dark brown is a bit of a strong contrast, but it is indeed a complimentary color.  It’s not my favorite, but it’s not bad.

Jordan Complete Bed Ensemble by Steve Madden, 100% Cotton– This set is ok, but I can’t say that I’m overly attracted to it.  The price doesn’t help either.

City Scene Bamboo Black – Another one that I’m not 100% with.  I’m not big on the idea of having a black and white bed set.  However, the design is nice…

And that’s all that I’m finding now.  Somehow, I don’t think I’ll be buying a set quite yet.

Limited edition PSP for Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker coming

Metal Gear PSP Front

Well, Sony is preparing yet another specially colored PSP to release with the upcoming MGS Peacewalker.  This specific one has definitely caught my interest, for it has several things going for it.

First, I have my launch PSP still.  Yes, it works; however, I have never been happy with it.  From the first day I got it, I had clusters of semi-dead pixels on that PSP, a problem that was common amongst the launch units.  While, this problem possibly could have been solved early on by a choice to turn in the PSP and get a new one, during those days, the pickings were slim.  Not to mention, I had convinced myself that the problem wasn’t major, which it honestly isn’t.  I can play my favorite games without the clouding issues being any problem.

Furthermore, seeing as this is a 3000 and my system is a 1000, there should be a much faster loading time on this unit.  To be honest, the slow loads on my unit have started to irk me.  Ok, perhaps it will be only a bit faster and not “much”, but it still would be faster.

Next, it’s a gorgeous color.  Now, I’m not saying that color alone will get me to buy a unit, though it has its appeals.  That has never been the case for me; however, I will say that I wouldn’t touch a system that was a puke-worthy color.  Nonetheless, the color is a nice draw.

Last, it comes with a game that I plan on buying.  I am a Snake fanatic, and Naked Snake is definitely fun (perhaps even more fun that Solid).

Hence, this system will definitely be on my radar.

Video game developers, please stop doing things like this!

See the awesomeness right there?  Yea, that.  Custom skins that are all great and part of a game that I am planning on buying because it looks like a ton of fun.  Hence, I want all of them!

However, the greatness which is capitalism has come up with the most twisted evil plot around.  You see, each and every one of those guys is a promo for a different store.  Ratchet and Clank is from Amazon, Kratos is from Gamestop, and Nathan Drake is from Best Buy.  This is just pure torment.  If I wanted all of them, I’d have to buy the game three times.

Now, logic states that these will be timed exclusives, like those that came with Little Big Planet.  So, I just need to pick my favorite now then wait it out for the rest to be released as DLC.  Still, that is beside the point.  I would much rather have a congruent reward system where I can get all three of them no matter who I pre-order from.


Well, onto pondering the evil which is this pre-order.  I am an Amazon logalist… but Nathan Drake is cute….  And Kratos is Kratos…

Very tempting…

I do enjoy having funky key chains.  However, I am afraid that if I get this, I’ll lose it like I did my Sephy and Bowser key chains…  And I seriously mean lose it.  Those things like falling off their screws and then dropping off at random points.



Oh man, now I wish I had more money and more room.  Heh.  These things are so cute.
