Noteworthy News: 6/16/08

Today's top stories in entertainment included coverage of this year's high school Tony awards. To think I could have been in the running 8-5 years ago if only I had stuck with drama club.

In international news, there was an item that perplexed me somewhat. A kidnapped Osakan was freed in Pakistan on Saturday. It's always a victory when a kidnap victim is released alive, however what was the young man doing before he was abducted? According to a Japan Times article, "[h]e had been traveling alone after teaching English in Nepal with a volunteer group." Ok Japan, what the hell? If you have young Japanese adults who are capable of teaching English by their lonesome abroad, why do you need to hire foreigners to do it in your own country? Well, I guess I should just be grateful for the job and bow apologetically.

In the video game arena, there's a new free-to-play MMORTS coming out that looks rather interesting, even if the playable races are horribly cliched. It's called Dreamlords: The Reawakening, and I'm too scared to put the time into investigating it further.

That's all for now, so until later...
