I'm a geek. (But at least I'm not a douche like Ice Cube)
This is why I haven't blogged for awhile and also why I can't seem to get any sleep, I spend my nights lying awake thinking of ways I should've countered other players, strategies i could use in the future, this is also why I took a week off work to play and somehow get the monkey off my back - some sort of aversion therapy where you have so much of the drug that you lose your taste for it; however, it's not really working as the better you get at this game the better your competition gets, so there is practically no chance of getting bored as the game is always a challenge. So there it is, I officially have no self-control or will-power and I could quite easily fall into an ocean of geekdom become unemployed, fat, greasy, wear faux ironic t-shirts with things like LOL, ROFL, LMAO, FFS and possibly even start joking with people in HTML code - I'm not there yet thank god, but it's coming.
Since I've been playing this game only a few things have hit my periphery, the Super-City voting papers arrived the other day; they're not mine but I figure I'll vote for whoever's voting papers I received - every vote counts right. Also the new season of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia started airing in the US which means it's available on-line for people who can't wait for C4 to buy the rights for the season in another year or so. In music news apart from Lou Reed bitch slapping Susan Boyle - in a metaphorical kind of way - there's really not too much interesting going on. I'm still waiting for Mr MCA to kick the cancer so the Beastie's can release their new album, however, when that will be is uncertain. Kings Of Leon have a new album coming out - yay, more mediocre pop music. Ice Cube has a new one coming out soon, I've chucked an interview of Mr Cube which kind of shows how out of touch Mr Cube is with world events; apparently he's just realised large corporations - like the label he's on - have a negative effect on society in some cases - no he can't mean that? Not Mr Cube? Corporations? No...
Here's the new track I Rep The West, because apparently Ice Cube "represents" the western territories of U.S.A, in fact one could possibly even say the West is his house, his home, his domain shall we say, nay, in fact he is the West and as Jim said, "the west is the best," however I have a feeling Jim meant "West" in a different way - probably in a taking acid and dying in a bathtub in France kind of way.
I was going to post the offical video but embedding has been disable by the "evil" corporation that Ice Cube speaks ill against.
The only real music news of any interest is Tricky releasing a new album in a week called Mixed Race, which is apparently the first album Tricky has made without the "enhancer" Marijuana. I've posted the official video for Murder Weapon below. To be honest seeing Tricky trying to be tough is laughable, especially when you consider he got his legs broken by Goldie - I'm not saying I could take him, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't take much to knock him out, actually nah, I'd pwn his ass.
Probably even more interesting than me pwning Tricky, is the news about Brian Eno's new studio album Small Craft On A Milk Sea is scheduled to drop early November, apparently he's going back to his ambient Music For Airports kind of sound. But that's about as interesting as we get, so... that's all for now, must get away from the computer and go out with real people and talk about real things of importance like when we're gonna do our next 4v4.
