Things that are awesome

1. Frosted mugs. They keep beer cold for hours, and because of that their awesomeness can not be understated.
2. The Prestige. The DVD came out this week, and it was just as good the second time. It's one of those movies where you notice little things after you know the twist that you missed the first time.
3. Crackdown.

Is Crackdown a great game? Not necessarily. It's not very long, you could probably wrap up the "story" in ten to twelve hours. Also, the missions are all pretty much the same. Approach area, kill grunts, kill boss. Rinse and repeat.

Does this mean that Crackdown isn't fun? Hells no. The fun just lies elsewhere: in things like jumping from rooftop to rooftop, or throwing a semi cab at some pedestrians, or intentionally leaping from a very tall building just to hear the sickening thud when you hit the ground. If, for some reason, you were one of those ten people who didn't download the demo, you really owe it to yourself to give it a shot. Trust me, if you love homing rocket launchers and throwing vehicles (and who doesn't), you'll love it.
