Random Topics - XBox One, Kree Harrison, How I Met Your Mother Reveal, & More - May 23, 2013

First, my thoughts and prayers obviously go out to everyone in Oklahoma.  There are no words to describe the images that we are seeing from there.  Just awful.  

A few random topics today.

XBox One was a huge topic earlier this week.  I watched the live streaming event on IGN.com of the unveiling of it.  They are definitely pushing this thing as your home base for home entertainment.  Not just gaming obviously.  They are pushing it as an interactive solution to all your needs.  TV, DVD, and Skype with your friends while watching TV.  Connect through the XBox One to watch TV.  8GB of RAM and 500GB of hard drive.  Blu-ray player.  It was impressive watching the demo on how you can call out to it and tell it when to switch between TV, games, and such.  The gaming demos looked really cool.  Amazing how lifelike everything looks and a big difference in the capabilities of that between the XBox 360 and XBox One.  Sports games looked great as did the demos for the role playing games.  Going to be fun to watch the battle between XBox One, PS4, and Wii U.  

Kellie Pickler is the winner of this season's Dancing With The Stars.  She and Derek Hough teamed up this season and got the win after a lot of hard work.

I really like Kree Harrison's song "All Cried Out".  Just an awesome song and she has an amazing voice.  Ready to hear more out of her for sure.  You can download the new song on iTunes.  Speaking of Kree, she has been added to the Grand Ole Opry lineup on June 4th which will be her Opry debut.

How I Met Your Mother has finally revealed the "mother".  She will be a series regular for the final season which will be season nine.  Cristin Milioti appeared in the role for the recent season finale and will be full time.  There has been a lot of debate for sure on the delay for all of the viewers finally meeting the woman that Ted would finally end up with.  I know a lot of people are thankful that we aren't going to just meet her in the final scene of the series finale.  Myself included.  LOL.

Another big anniversary just passed for a series finale.  May 14, 1998 was the final date of Seinfeld being on the air.  15 years since that show has signed off.  That is unreal to me that it has been that long.

That is it for today.  Take care and God bless!!
