This is going to be pretty random and I mean more so than usual.
Right now I am busy working away at the 11 questions from both simpleek and soaringwings. I am, of course, drawing the hugest blank ever but that is really not a surprise. The answers will come to me in due time…hopefully that time being within the next two weeks.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand.
When I wake up in the morning, I have a routine. Part of my routine, if I have the time, consists of at least half an hour of zoning out at my computer. I use that time to help me wake up and to read the news. Yeah, it’s like newspaper time only without the ink smudges on my fingers. When I read the news, I also usually play some videos on YouTube as background noise.
This morning by random chance I happened to come across two videos that woke me up pretty damn fast!
First one: Assassin’s Creed 3 Trailer
You know, I have no doubt in my mind that Assassin’s Creed 3 will be an amazing game. Really, I don’t. But dammit all, if something is going to cause my faith to waiver, it is most definitely going to be the setting of Colonial America! I figured that the game would eventually have to come to America at some point, but I was kind of hoping for modern America rather than historical America. US history is the most BORING history in the world to me. ANYTHING would have been better than this!
Last one: Tenacious D
A friend of mine actually gave me some Tenacious D songs years ago and I really liked them, but I’m not really the type who cares about who exactly the artist is. It sounds bad, but hey, the truth hurts. Anyway, this morning, I came across this video and I’m watching it and I’m wondering: “Why in the hell is Jack Black in this?” Faint alarms start ringing in my brain and I’m thinking: “Haha, no way,” as I look up Tenacious D on Wikipedia. Jack Black is part of Tenacious D. Fuck. No wonder his damn voice sounded familiar. All these years and I couldn’t make a connection! I am usually really bad at making these connections, but I haven’t needed years to make them until now!!! Gah! Oh god, and I love Jack Black…how could I not hear this? Who feels like the stupidest person in the world? I do!
So…that was my morning! How was yours?
