What it's like to be me

And then maybe you can begin to understand what it's like IN MY WORLD.

Well you SOUND angry.

I heard this song on the radio at work. Look at the video. 

Instead of talking about the emotional gravity of the lyrics or the randomly crimped sections of the singer's hair, I just want to say I think this would be a really good Karaoke pick if you could sing. Which I can't. Not even a little bit. So what I like to do, when forced into a Karaoke situation, is to sing "Black Velvet" before the regular woman who performs it every week gets a chance. It doesn't matter where you're doing Karaoke, whether it's at a lounge or T.G.I. Fridays. There is always that woman and it's always "Black Velvet." And now she's pissed.

Allow me to dork out for a minute

I didn't have that many friends after Elementary School (probably in part because of my umbros), and one of my favorite pastimes was playing adventure games. They were really big in the 90's. The Monkey Island series and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis were the games I played over and over, but I liked pretty much all of LucasArts' offerings, even Loom. I hope you didn't understand that reference because that means you suffered the pains of being unpopular like I did, and now I feel sorry for you.

Anyway, LucasArts gave up on these types of games in the early '00's, canning sequels to Sam & Max and Full Throttle so they could focus on ruining Star Wars. Fortunately the guys who created Sam & Max formed Telltale Games, scooped up the rights and started releasing new games in episodic form. When that was a success, they released a new Monkey Island game. And now they've got even more exciting and/or nostalgic games coming up. Several episodes of  Back to the Future is already available,  Jurassic Park is on the horizon and (yessssssssssssss), The Walking Dead is in development. I was ultimately quite disappointed in the TV series, so I'm pretty excited to see how the game turns out. The Telltale games have been topnotch thus far; here's hoping they keep stomping on LucasArts' face.

But it's right in your face so you can't look away!
