I used to think all the Skyrim hype would die down, and we’d no longer be cracking jokes about Fus ro dah or Dovahkiin, but then, I took an arrow in the — AAAHHHHH!! Okay, I’m sorry. Never again. I haven’t even played the game. I barely get the stupid meme. (TDW: Geeks)

Sadly, on January 2nd the Jaws ride at Universal Studios. It’s been shut down to make way for a new Harry Potter ride. Even I a Harry Potter fan sees this as stupid. They just opened a Potter theme park, do they need a ride as Universal, too!? As some consolation to those, like myself, will never get to ride the Jaws ride, Youtuber InsideTheMagic uploaded a video of the whole ride and Amity.
On Jan. 2, 2012, Universal Orlando closed its iconic Jaws ride and Amity area permanently to make way for a new attraction. Inspired by the Steven Spielberg film Jaws, this video takes a cinematic approach to paying tribute to the attraction which first debuted at Universal Studios Florida in 1990.Featuring John Williams’ famous score, multiple camera angles, and a few added sound effects, this video not only captures the action of the attraction but does so as if it were a movie – a Jaws sequel of sorts.
Last night I finished Portal 2. I know, totally late to the game but it didn’t make the experience any less amazing. From now on, I only want to wear these long fall boots. That is if I can create them on my own with help of Volpin’s progress shots. Or I could be lazy and just buy some long fall socks. (Fashionably Geek)
