On the other side of the screen, it all looks easy.

  I watched Tron last night for the first time in probably 20 years.  My six year old son joined me and I was surprised how well he stuck with it.  This morning I told him that there was a sequel coming out that we should go see and he said, "I hope it's in new color because that one was in 70's color".  It made me laugh then made me feel old.

  I was able to get some quality time in with the Engineer Update for Team Fortress 2.  Of course, now there are 10 engineers on every team.  It's like following a band for years, then they become popular and its difficult to get tickets.  I liked them first, back off!  I didn't realize at first that you can now move your built items which has added a new dimension to the class.  I had planned to put some serious time in last night but ended up watching Timer with the wife, which was real enjoyable.

  Star Wars: The Old Republic has finally begun testing.  I was exceedingly disappointed to not be invited this round, as this has been the only MMORPG I've been looking forward to playing since WWII Online.  It isn't released until early next year so there are a few real life things I should focus on completing before as there is little hope in my ability to focus once that day arrives.

  As I have been mentioning, Comic-Con is nearly upon us.  They released Friday's schedule which happens to be Star Wars day.  The event I would be most looking forward to is the World Premiere of Batman: Under the Red Hood.  I hope the Saturday schedule has some Avengers on it.
