Great video, and thanks so very muich! I would like to say though, remind people that you cannot use Vanishing Point in CMYK and must be in RGB. I'm not sure why, but after a while of trying to do this...I discovered that it doesn't work in CMYK and only RGB.... :)

I guess what frustrates me is that there's not more outcry from the African American leaders on these types of events in the news. Where's Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? Where's Kanye West and DL Hughley when these happen? Why aren't they speaking to the African American communities and saying more on how to rise above these types of events and work towards a better society? I'm also wondering if the President even has the courage to comment on this? After all, that could be his grandson (hint to the 'could be my son' comment on Trayvon Martin).

Just the other day I was watching a Bill Cosby clip in on Facebook where he's talking about this very subject, black people expecting to get somewhere in life when they act a certain way and behave a certain way. I saw it commented frequently by my white friends and yet...never heard anything in the news about it and it was a recent video.

Seriously, I work hard at making the world an equal place for all no matter of their color, religion or race. However, when African Americans (and whites) idolize people like Kanye West instead of Martin Luther King...their community suffers the consequences and you get what you give in this world.

I doubt the President, Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton will comment one bit about this video. If I were an African American, I'd want to know why our black leaders avoid these kind of stories...and only want to comment on the Trayvon Martins' of the world. 

Its just something to think about...

I'm just very leery of video games being turned into movies. After all, how good (cough, cough) were movies like Super Mario Bro's, Doom, & Mortal Kombat, Wing Commander (was okay, but still wasn't great),

Five Rules on How Not to Use Social Media

The blue-crab wontons are fantastic, the entrees are delicious, and the staff is extremely attentive. I never have a bad meal or experience here, and they do offer take out if you're not in the mood for eating in--so that's a plus. My only two comments or room for improvement, egg-drop soup is not on the dinner menu (but is on the luncheon menu) and we rarely if ever get fortune cookies with the bill. These two small complaints are small in comparison to the excellent food and service that Yao Fuzi delivers each and every time we dine here. Also, I do not agree with others who say its pricey, this isn't Panda Express so you're going to pay more for quality food. Its priced reasonably well when compared with other restaurants of equal caliber. Its well worth the price for fine asian dining.

The filets are delicious, and when paired with a lobster-tail, there simply isn't a better dinner to be had. I prefer their sweat-potato casserole vs a baked potato, you wont be disappointed. Top it off with a key-lime pie for dessert!
