Interview with Jason Priestly

DSC_0072.jpgStopped by the Mario Kart launch party at Rockefeller Plaza today and snagged an interview with 90210's Jason Priestly!

Are there red and blue shells in real race car driving?
[Laughs] Uh, not really. Not so much. There's not a real comparison between the two, but Mario Kart is a lot of fun and that's really what it's for. The whole point of video games is to have fun, it's about having fun with your friends. And the Wii, I've found, is more fun for a lot of people than any other gaming platform.

From Newsweek's Level Up gaming blog:
Having sated our thirst for Judas Priest, we began to swap instruments and move on to some Rock Band staples. It was here that Yang convincingly channelled her inner rock star into songs like Hole's "Celebrity Skin," The Killers' "When You Were Young" and a one-two punch of Boston, consisting of "More Than A Feeling" and "Foreplay/Long Time." Had there been a million faces present, she would surely have rocked them all.

I was on the subway. There was a couple fighting. There was a man who didn't know where home was. There was a homeless man who did. Dozens of travelers across the platform. Waiting. Pacing. Broadway Lafayette. Next stop: home.
I believe I can write again late, late at night.
