A video game console released on September 9th, 1999, or "9/9/99." The system ushered in the 128-bit age, with impressive graphics and online capabilities out of the box via a 56k modem.
The system was a huge hit among hardcore gamers and Sega Fanatics. Yet, in 2001, Sega pulled the plug on the system, and consoles were no longer manufactured. Many reasons exist for why the system failed -- no support of certain "critical" publishers, prior failure of the Sega Saturn, the ease with which games could be pirated, and the hype of the looming PS2. During its two year lifespan, over 250 games were released in the U.S. market, and many were hugely successful.
Whatever the reason for its demise, the system lived a life too short, but will always be remembered fondly in the hearts of serious gamers for excellent titles such as Soul Calibur, Sonic Adventure, Power Stone, Shenmue, and Crazy Taxi, just to name a few. We miss you, Dreamcast.
Hey man, I just got a Dreamcast.
Oh yeah, that's that badass system from Sega!
But.. isn't PS2 coming out soon. Why did you buy one?
BE QUIET. Dreamcast has great potential for fun. Gaming is about variety and innovation, and Dreamcast has both.

Something that just pulls you in by how it looks, smells, sounds, etc. People are often attractive, but things can be too. Attractive things are often hard to define, particularly in how they attract you. But, they sure do. And, what attracts one person doesn't always attract another.
Gosh, she's attractive.
I KNOW BRO!

The female equivalent to a sausage fest. Can be any place inundated with females, where few or no men exist; basically a girls' club.
"Dude, that Catholic girls' school is a total taco fest."
"Kinda like the *N SYNC concert."

Sometimes known as "costa misery," this area just north of Newport Beach is home to affluent Orange County residents and is actually quite nice. They are not usually as rich as people in NB, yet the area is quite nice. There are some cool parks in and around the city. It's pretty calm, as well.
"Costa Mesa, I love thee."

Now known as "Verizon Wireless Amphitheater Los Angeles," this beatufiul concert venue in Irvine, CA has a large stage well visible to the 10s of thousands of fans it accomodates. The parking is well-planned, and the sound quality is nice for a huge outdoor arena. It's a magical place to be in the evening when the sun sets to your back, accompanied by the sound of rocking guitars.
I saw Judas Priest the Irvine Meadows.
