Soldiers of the Congolese army pass by a helmet and rest of used munition at Rumangabo base which was overrun by Forces loyal to renegade Laurent Nkunda, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of the provincial capital of Goma after an intense battle, on October 11, 2008. The rebel forces withdrew from the army base. Democratic Republic of Congo officials this week alleged that Rwandan troops had aided Nkunda's forces to capture Rumangabo, and accused Kigali of planning to attack the provincial capital of Goma. Rwandan officials denied the charges. Renewed fighting broke out August 28 with government troops and Nkunda's CNDP violating a ceasefire reached under the Goma peace accord in January.

The upcoming episode of the video game Grand Theft Auto IV looks to be a wild one.
GTA IV, which was released in April for the Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3, focused on former Eastern European soldier Niko Bellic and his escalating life of crime in the boroughs of Liberty City. This new episode, available Feb. 17 via download exclusively for those who own the Xbox 360 version (no price yet), stars Johnny Klebitz, a member of Liberty City biker gang The Lost.
"Johnny is a very different character than Niko, with a very different background," says Dan Houser, vice president of creative development for Rockstar Games. "I can't go into too much detail on the story, because we try not to give away too much plot before the game is released. But I can say that the story will show you a different side of Liberty City."
The episode, titled The Lost and Damned, requires players to have the full version of the Mature-rated GTA IV (ages 17 and older) and an Xbox Live membership to download. It's likely to carry an M rating, too. (Parents can use the Xbox 360's parental controls to prevent children from accessing inappropriate content.)
GTA IV is the top video game this year; nearly two-thirds of the 5 million copies sold have been for Xbox 360, according to The NPD Group.
In the original game, Niko crossed paths with The Lost several times. This time, Niko has only a bit part, Houser says. "The story is not directly impacted by decisions you took in the main game," he says. But "tons of details and mysteries from the main story get explained, so it will add a lot of color to the main story."
Rockstar Games has been fine-tuning its explorable 3-D virtual worlds since launching its first "sandbox" game with Grand Theft Auto III in 2001.
The new game will let you download more sandbox time. "We feel like we've only scratched the surface in terms of the depth and detail in" GTA IV's mythical Liberty City, says Houser.
Previous games have used downloads to add "new stages, weapons and costumes," says GamePro Media features editor Dave Rudden, "but GTA IV's content will reportedly add hours of gameplay."
Rudden hopes the episode costs $15 or less, but Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst Michael Pachter expects a $20 price and says Rockstar could sell 2 million to 3 million downloads. "I see episodic content as a natural progression of the quality of downloadable content."
don't get a ticket. fuck the police.
And yes I fully admit posting youtube videos is lame but one can't ignore the genius that is SOR2. And for some reason I've thinking of this classic game.
the tunes in the game.

Pepsi has sent to twenty-five lucky "digital and social media influencers" three separately-shipped packages unveiling the new identity and packaging, flaunting the old Pepsi logos as if this new work was honoring what came before it. The package also included a DVD with a little motion piece that you can watch here.
While a fresh look is always interesting it remains to be seen how this logo reboot will be accepted by the masses.
There's a Banksy show/installation in Greenwich Village which opened 10/9.
"The Village Pet Store and Grill" has pet-like displays along with items that might make one hungry. Hot dogs and salami as gerbils, a hairless Tweety bird, fish sticks in a fish tank, chicken products in a coop, a grooming rabbit, a fur coat doubling as a cat, and best of all, a chimp watching chimp porn. (It's all animatronics.)
Lest the hours on the store's business cards fool you, it's actually open from 10am - midnight (not the printed time of 12pm) through October 31st at 89 7th Ave. South (btwn Jekyll and Hyde and Sushi Samba). There's talk the show may be recreated somewhere else after the run.

To no one's surprise the committee decided to cross breed a human with a "radical" leopard to create a freakish amalgamation dubbed Zakumi. I was holding out hope for a rhino+shark/human hybrid. next time.
interesting cultural fact that you'll forget in 1 minute: "Za” is an acronym for South Africa while “kumi” apparently translates as “10″ in various languages across Africa. wow.
apparently Seagal has put a lot of thought into where his John McClane, the Navy Seal chef Casey Rybeck, is headed…
His proposal was caught on video. Reliably, the actor says there are offers on the table.
“I personally want it to be something more modern. [long pause] In other words, [long pause] I wouldn’t mind if it was about something more mystical or [five minute pause] maybe extraterrestrial in nature. Some real government top secrets instead of just the typical.” [365 day pause]
This would be hilarious and totally necessary.
China could easily end up owning the lion’s share of the US and UK’s financial systems. - Inspired by Robert Peston, BBC Business Editor
With the collapses on Wall Street this week and signs in the United Kingdom pointing towards a housing market crisis as well, it appears that the U.S. and the U.K. have left the door open for other world economies to step in and take over the global economy. Peston reports: “It's a world in which the Chinese state, if it co-ordinated the investments of its cash-rich institutions, could end up owning more-or-less the entire financial system of the US and the UK.” It is conservative institutions, he says, and those with simpler business models with a history of careful management of their funding sources, which will become the new superpowers.
One of my super secret spies at Google just happened to trade contact information with someone who admitted that the phone in his hand was the fabled Dream.
David Simon and Tom Fontana, two of the creators behind one of the greatest television crime dramas of all time, "Homicide: Life on the Street" are now teaming up again to adapt James L. Swanson's excellent book, "Manhunt" which follows the 12-day hunt for John Wilkes Booth following Lincoln's assassination. It's the kind of material that would work well as a film, but knowing that it will get a full mini-series makes me all kinds of excited. Based solely off of the excellent time period series that was "John Adams", I can safely say my hopes are medium to high right now. If your a fan of US History this can only be good news
"Manhunt" is a great book and if Simon and

Architects Denton Corker Marshall, working in collaboration with engineers Hyder Consulting and Kenneth Grubb Associates, have won the international design competition for the Te Wero Bridge in Auckland, New Zealand. It seems a bit of a stretch to call a bridge stunning but this design most definitely fits the bill. Really quite amazing.
The NZ$50 million bridge will link the city’s CBD with Wynyard Quarter – an industrial area of Auckland’s waterfront that will be transformed over the next 25 years. Intended for public transport/cycle/pedestrian use, the Te Wero Bridge is a twin leaf bascule aluminum bridge with a vertical tower/mast of 60m.
The deck is split longitudinally into two separate components: the south leaf, longer and broader than the north, carries the two road lanes; the north leaf provides a 6m wide pedestrian/cycle path. The bridge will have an opening span of 40 metres to enable large boats to access Viaduct Harbour.
As the bridge opens, the two leaves separate coming to rest in a ‘V’ configuration with the decks angled obliquely to the mast and each other. The aerodynamic silhouette of the leaves suggest the modern sails of contemporary racing yachts.
Describing the design, Director Neil Bourne commented, “At rest, the striking mast stands sentinel in the heart of the harbour. In motion, the blades rise, split and then separate, twisting so edge becomes face. Upright, the three elements settle into a dynamic, yet elegant, composition.”
Professor John Hunt, Professor of Architecture at the University of Auckland and Chair of the Judging Panel said, “The judging panel agreed that this striking submission stood out from others in respect of its high level of design innovation and the unique way the twin leaves open.”
The Auckland City Gov site has a animation of the bridge raising and lowering, its a swf file so it can't be embedded, check it out. Te Wero Bridge animation
Key design features
- responds to its harbour context and distant views with large-scale distinctive cultural form and elegant profile
- vertical tower rises above yacht masts and creates a permanent gateway feature to mark crossing point regardless of whether the bridge is open or closed
- deck splits in two as it rises, with the leaves sweeping apart to come to rest in a V configuration
- the longer, broader south leaf carries the two passenger transport lanes while the north leaf is exclusively for pedestrians and cycles
- the three primary elements of differing length and width form an asymmetric composition. When viewed from different angles, they create infinite combinations of juxtapositions as the bridge leaves move towards the mast.
- lightweight deck and counterweight arrangement result in very low energy use
- deck can be fabricated using local boat building expertise
- material selection gives excellent durability and low maintenance regime.

Daniel Craig is gunning for the #2 Bond spot in his 2nd film.
I don't think anyone can realistically expect to beat out Connery but Craig killed the role in Casino. this trailer has succeeded in hyping me up, sufficiently stoking interest for this flick. Interesting note: the director is Marc Forster, he helmed Monster's Ball, Kite Runner and finding Neverland. pretty cool they let this guy take the reigns of an action geared flick like this.
so in summary if you don't act like its new material you can appreciate this bootleg. and you will laugh, that's the most important part.
