The EVIL! Opinion Journal (Wall Street Journal)

Alas the slippery slope...

For some years I have had James Taranto, the author of the Best of the Web Today column of the Wall Street Journal nee Opinion Journal as a friend.  I enjoy his column and have had the pleasure of his company sailing.  James dropped a note in Facebook that he was to appear on "Hannity" a couple of days ago.  Since I wanted to see him I hooked up the TV on Reboot for the first time in about 2 years.  I did get to see him, I thought he did well but deserved more air time.

With the TV hooked up and my exceptional abilities at procrastination it was but a moment before I found myself avoiding getting Reboot ready for the Fall trip to the Eastern Caribbean.  Instead I found myself channel surfing.  This worked for about two days before I concluded that pretty much all of what is on TV is miserable entertainment.  It looked like I was going to have to go back to working on the boat.

Fortunately I was required to make a "sin run" to the Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point exchange and commissary.  While there I picked up a copy of Avatar (Three-Disc Extended Collector's Edition).  I consider this movie one of the great chick flicks of all time.  It is a great love story with lots of heavy metal to keep the guys interested.  The problem was that my DVD player has become unreliable - salt air is a bane to electronics.  The solution was to unpack my PlayStation 3 160 GB from its waterproof case and hook it up.

After watching Avatar and a couple of other movies in my collection I decided to slip my God of War: Collection disk into the PlayStation.  You can see where this is going.

I am stuck on the third head of the Hydra.  I am playing at the stupid incompetent old guy skill level.  So I am really stuck.  Spencer provided me with a link to the God of War walk thru which has been quite a help but I am still having difficulty with the keystroke timing.  Needless to say work on Reboot has ground to a halt.

A a red blooded retired Navy American citizen I want to point out that my failure to get my work done is all George Bush's fault.  If it wasn't for him there would be no Opinion Journal web page and I would not have met James so I would not have hooked up my TV, watched Hannity, etc.  I think I need Government compensation for my situation.
