if you have a playstation 3, and haven’t yet played journey, you probably should. this ~two hour game is a revelation, from the restrained graphics, to the simple, touching storyline, to the incredibly subtle multiplayer integration. it challenges the claims of all those developers putting out their nth iteration of the same game while complaining that they can no longer innovate on 7th generation consoles, with an experience that is unmatched by many full length games. and nary a crate in sight!
between cupcake & hokey pokey, theo hugstable, and caué, this weekend has gone for the dogs, in the best way possible.
you might want get a copy of the new one-off ralph wiggum comic, on stands now. it’s super cute (no surprises there!) and i was thrilled to see sergio aragones take on springfield’s favorite dimwit. how can you resist? he’s in mint conditioner!
if someone were to search my freezer thoroughly, i think they’d be in for some surprises.
there are so many shows good enough to get me out of the house in the next few months, it’s crazy. april 15? lucero. may 2nd? nashville pussy & the supersuckers. june 22nd, corrosion of conformity & torche. total cost? 54$, not horrid. i’d love to go see converge & burning love for an additional 20$ on the 5th of april, but that’s a low priority. far on the horizon lies the real prize fight, however… july 16th’s hairy alliance of def leppard, poison and lita ford, which i fear will lie somewhere in the 100$ range. tickets to those first four shows are available at soundcentral. i know there’s a couple of you out there who wanna come play, so lemme know if you’d like me to grab you a ticket to any or all of ‘em.
speaking of which, i watched the decline of western civilization part II, and i just don’t understand why i don’t look like everyone in that film all the time.
i’ve written about my parasomnias/weird dreams here in the past, but these past few weeks have been out of control with regards to all this. maybe it’s the spring fever, but i’ve been acting out in my sleep a lot more, both physically and verbally. my dreams are especially intense, and while enjoyable, i wake up mentally and physically exhausted from the energy i’ve extended in these fictional worlds.
are there any other people out there who feel like after a week or so of ~20 degree weather, we could totally be in for another snowfall?
