Let's face it -- when you're spending a ton of time playing video games, you aren't spending time doing much else.

As you know, OC is now serviced by a dedicated Kogi truck nicknamed Naranja. But tonight, Kogi will land at Diamond Jamboree (10:30 p.m.-midnight). This sounds like either a very very good idea or a very very bad idea. I vote bad, because parking at the Asian minimall is hell as it is. Add a fe ... More >>

Initial media reports about Sunday's improbable double killing at a ritzy Laguna Beach resort didn't mention who did the killing. Call me jaded, but that's odd.
