The Oscars on Mahalo

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

Got Academy Award mania? Me neither. I find myself underwhelmed by awards shows and frankly, this year's crop of movies strikes me as rather underwhelming. (I went and saw Slumdog Millionaire a couple of weeks ago, hoping for something unique and was sorely disappointed.) So, if you're like me and don't care to sit through the red carpet and all the award presentations to editors and costume designers you've never heard of (yes, I realize that they're just as much, if not more important to the film than the actors), check out the host of Oscar-related pages at Mahalo. Mahalo staff will be doing their darndest to keep these pages up-to-date with the latest info, so if you miss an award or need a recap, they'll have you covered.

Street Fighter 4

Monday, February 16, 2009

Ah...I can't even begin to estimate how much time I spent playing Street Fighter II on Super NES back in junior high. Come to think of it, Chun-Li may have had something to do with my longtime aspiration to become an ass-kicking ninja (something I have yet to realize, but the dream will never die). I just found out that the latest Street Fighter installment (and first of the decade) comes out tomorrow. Want to know anything and everything about Street Fighter IV? Mahalo's on it:

Super Bowl Ads

Saturday, January 31, 2009

It never ceases to amaze me that there is as much, if not more, buzz around the commercials that will be played during the Super Bowl than the event itself. However, since I'm not a football fan, I must admit that the ads and halftime show hold more interest for me than the game. What time does the puck drop (just kidding, I'm not that ignorant - at least I know hockey.) In case you miss one of the ads, want to know more, or just watch them again, Mahalo will be providing live coverage and has a great collection of all the ads that played during Super Bowl XLIII, including one by Amy Borkowsky, the woman who's using the opportunity to look for a husband.
