    No, no. It's an old song by Wham but it's been re-made many times (Taylor Swift may have been one of the latest ones). This version was good ol' George Michael. I was just making fun of it because the lyrics could be taken another way.

    English is great for that.

    Then the guy proceeds to lament how he'll be smarter next time.

    And I'm thinking -- she gave it away -- why is he complaining?

    Sick song

    Merry Turkey Day II.

    If you have any fruitcake you think you'll us as a door-stopper just send it my way instead, ok?

    Can't wait for Boxing Day so we can look for sales on more move controllers. Just have one now with the LBP-2 bundle.

    72% of Quebecers refuse to celebrate Christmas because Santa's lead reindeer is unilingual.

    I was just having fun with the quickmeme.com site generating my own captions.

    Not Boxing Day yet, but ToysRUs.ca has the motion and navigation controllers at $10 off each, and free shipping if you buy two. So $59.90 for the two. You can get the same price on eBay but it ships from Hong Kong (if you don't get dinged at customs you will save the HST, but it takes 3 weeks).

    I'll wait to see if there's anything better on Boxing Day.

    Same price at FS and I can just drive over there. Plus they have 8GB USB flash drives for $8 ($7 off) -- need one of those to watch downloaded stuff on the PS3.

    Hmm, interesting:
    http://www.dinodirect.com/ps3-move-motion-controller.html?cur=CAD&AFFID=67

    It says "PS3 Move Motion Controller for PS3" but the picture shows just the navigation controller. The price ($26.99) fits the navigation controller, but this is supposed to be 72% off -- the original price of $92.97 is more like the two controllers together. And the descriptions says "Consisting of Move Motion Controller, PlayStation Move Navigation controller, PlayStation Move enables sophisticated motion control ..."

    So it does sound like it could be both. But are they describing the PA3 "Move" concept as opposed to what they are selling?
