jD: Kinect Xbox 360!!!!

Monday went to XBOX 360 introduction to KINECT. My Friend Toe-Knee Had posted this blog so i am reposting it . Thanks Toe-Knee!!! Check out his Blog!!! and Follow His Twitter @tk-Nguyen 

[Monday, June 14th] This entire week, thousands of hardcore video gaming geeks from around the world, including myself, will be taking over Downtown Los Angeles for the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) at the LA Convention Center.  Its seriously every kids dream... I can't tell you how excited I am because this is actually my first E3!
If you've been keeping up with my blog, you'll remember I recently went to the Project Natal Xbox 360 preview event in Venice. If you don't, click here and I'll refresh your memory. Anyways, this past Sunday, on the eve of E3, Xbox put on the most extravagant show imagined by Cirque du Soleil to bring the controller-free gaming and entertainment to life by introducing Kinect for Xbox 360.
“Creating and producing this customized experience for Microsoft took four months of preparation work for the creation team and required 76 artists and no less than 200 technicians. The magnitude of the event is greater than any other taken on by Cirque du Soleil Events.” - Martin Dignard, Production Director
Thank you once again to Jessica Lange (Xbox) & Lady Sha (Lioness LA) for inviting me out to witness the future of entertainment. I got a chance to go to both Sunday and Monday's festivities and let me tell you, I was absolutely blown away by how much they put into this entire experience. Microsoft definitely didn't hold back.
[Sunday Crew]: Angela x Mark Marcelo x Jenny Kita x Jenilee Reyes x TK
Don't worry! We didn't join a cult, although it felt that way when we first walked into the Galen Center, but these intergalactic space ponchos were required for all guest... You'll see why in a second.
I was so busy enjoying the show on Sunday, I only snapped a few pictures from my iPhone. However, during Monday's show JD McElroy (Chris Brown) put his Canon S90 to use and snapped some amazing photos from the show & after-party.

[Monday Crew]: Michael x TK x JD x Mink x Chachy Welcome to Pandora.... Can you see why it felt like we were joining a cult? HAHA Mel x Ben Wang (722) x TK They had these incredible 25 foot HD projection screens that were the length of a football field. Introducing the Kinect for Xbox 360. Tinkerbell made a guest appearance flying around the Cinderella Castle and the auditorium... I wonder what Disney and Xbox have planned for us... Dance Central is by far Jenny Kita's favorite game! We were breakin' it down to No Doubt's "Hella Good" during the Sunday show. They even had the camera crew's on us, so look out for us to be on MTV today (Tuesday, June 15) at 3:30PM ET for a commercial-free special broadcast.
Mink x TK x Ben x Mel I still don't know how that girl was walking upside down and bouncing a ball at the same time? Turns out our intergalactic space ponchos all light up... We're all officially part of the Kinect Cult now! The World Premiere Kinect for Xbox 360 Experience was absolutely amazing! Its crazy to see how technology has evolved over the past few years. I'm just scared I'm never going to leave my living room after I get Kinect for Xbox 360.
It was off to the after-party at Loft 7 in DTLA featuring DJ Lady Sha on the rooftop. There was FREE valet, FREE drinks, FREE food, great music, good friends, and Xbox 360. What more can you ask for!? DJ Lady Sha is the only DJ I know that can get away with playing Dipset at a Microsoft event! That's gangsta! HAHA Shout out to the Hellz Bellz crew for meet up with us on the rooftop. Alright ladies and gentlemen, its time for me to head out to E3! I'll be Tweeting and TwitPicing from the convention so make sure you're following me: @tk_nguyen
