Oscar has unveiled their list of nominees for the big night.

BEST PICTURE

THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING
LOST IN TRANSLATION
MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD
MYSTIC RIVER
SEABISCUIT

Here are some of my quick preditions:

Lost in Translation takes Director, Best Actor and Original Screenplay Oscars. Return of the King undeservedly takes everything else. I have to find out which of the short films or documentaries are about the Holocaust before I can predict those categories.

I'll do a complete rundown of my predictions of what will win and more importantly what I believe deserves to win (two separate categories) a little closer to the Oscars (February 29th).

In other news Nintendo announces its new handheld: Nintendo DS (Double-Screen). Maybe they will let us connect our GameBoy Advances up to it to play multi-player games.

It is confirmed that World of Warcraft beta sign ups begin Wednesday at 6PM PST the 28th on the blizzard site.

Holy Bejesus I'm sold on Steel Battalion: Line of Contact.

God damn if this fish game isn't addictive.

It's never too late for Christmas! I mean who couldn't use a Katana shaped PS2 Controller?! - Brought to you by KenshiroKing.

I saw this while driving on the road the other day. I thought it was pretty funny and thought I would share.

It wouldn't be a LotD update without at least one Halo video. This one is a press documentary on Halo 2 with some never before seen footage of this most highly anticipated of sequels.

It has not escaped my notice that there have been some general complaints about the quality or lack thereof of our recent LotDs. Therefore to fix that problem here is a mixed bag of good ones from KenshiroKing and I. Everything running the gamut of lurid firsthand tales from whores and porn store clerks to a David Hasselhoff music video and Bush one-upping us all, LU has got you covered.

The reelection slogan for George W. Bush used to be "four more years, four more countries," but Big W has one-upped us all and has skipped conquering countries and moved on to conquering planets.

Ooga Chakka Ooga Chakka…it's kind of catchy.

Whore-R stories. *Broken Link* I'll fix this one when I get a chance. Stories from a Russian based E-zine about one of their reporter's escapades with Russian prostitutes. Fairly graphic but extremely interesting.

Chick tracts. Everyone probably already knows about these, but their message of hate disguised as Christian propaganda makes me laugh and cry at the same time.

Don't let the fact that the author works at a porn video store fool you, this diary is an enlightening view into the realities of addiction, shame and the dark underbelly of society. Uh... it's really not as bad as I made it sound. VERY interesting reading.

A video of the grand opening of the Apple store in Japan. The longest line I have ever seen. Watch the whole video, it's worth it. This video should be called the Asian people are many...and they are giving away free Apples.

Interesting psychological discussion of the societies created by MMO games discussed by Peter Ludlow, the guy whom EA banned from the Sims for his frank expose on the realities of said game. Beat that sentence.

This game should be the basic test that all gaming clans should use to screen members.

Check out this Halo video of the Ogres (the reigning two man team slayer player champions) play on XBC.

[-STK-]StrangePurple writes down his Halo strategy for Hang Em High.

Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow is looking pretty good. See for yourself.

I mean Jesus Christ, just give this entrepreneur his $200 already.

More nerd material. Just funny. Not the nerds, but the material. Nerds are funny too, I guess.

New 40GB portable hard drive = iPod killer.

Damn kids are squirrelly.

Remember sending instant messages in DOS? Well it got this 8th grader a three day suspension for it.

Why this guy hates Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and why you should also.

Here are two art galleries that I found to be pretty neat.

First gallery.

Second gallery.

How do I follow those up? With some dancing robots.

Next up is how to create your own gauss riffle. Find me on Xbox LIVE in MechAssault to feel the wrath of my Belial's dual gauss riffles Britney and Christina.

Been playing Crimson Skies much? You will be once you watch this movie trailer.

An interesting read for a movie about call centers in India.

Lastly is an EverQuest test submitted by Innovasian to determine your class.
