Okay, I admit it.  
Youtube Rickrolling people was funny. ^_^

Normally, I'm not a huge fan of Internet Asshole Day, since most of the "jokes" aren't funny, and you can't trust any news you read (Sony to remake FFVII for PS3! No wait, it's April 1! HAHAHA!). Some people do a good job (Blizzard and Wizards of the Coast this year, I thought), but most don't. I suppose it's because I think that Rickrolling, much like This! Is! Sparta!, is one of those memes that may never get old.

To this day, the sound Lavos makes makes me twitch. I should really play Chrono Trigger again. Same with Homeworld and the third mission... "Kharak is burning." I think video games have had more emotional impact on me than any novel I've read yet or movie I've watched. Maybe it's the interactivity? For another classic example, "But...the future refused to change." I've explained them to softlykarou, and she doesn't feel strongly about them, probably because it's the identification through having interacted with the characters in an active fashion.

Two of my friends from college came to visit this weekend. It was all kinds of fun, though the weather was probably the worst March weather for a visit imaginable. Drinks were drink, karaoke was sung (though not by me, as I had to work), Smash was played (Sonic boom, sonic boom...) and for a few days, it was just like old times. It was a nice feeling.

Blizzard's was awesome. The trailer for 'The Molten Core' killed me. Skinning bears should aggro every bear within 40 feet!

stupid Lavos, i liked Chrono Trigger alot but Chrono Cross for some reason just grabbed me more. Also Homeworld is amazing i suggest playing Sins of a Solar Empire for a more recent fleet command game.

Also, Sonic CD was pretty gewd

I could never get in to Chrono Cross...not sure why. Maybe because I couldn't have Chrono HolyLuminare everything in my path. >.>

The largest SSBB fan boards did a search-replace thing for most of the characters on April Fools. Sonic was replaced with: "Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom" :-p

Which friends? I wasn't aware you had any friends in college aside from myself.

Also, I would TOTALLY shred as a Bard.

What can I say? I am a hero of the guitar.

But seriously, what friends?

Lisa and Kateri.

Yeah, that makes sense. Those two are incorrigible.

Watch it, or I'll visit you next!

HiiiiiiiiiiiiiIIIIIIIIIIIIiiiiiiii! (>'.')> <('.'<)

Oh, and I'm glad to see that YouTube link was in fact Sonic Boom, and not something else... that starts with "Rick" and ends with "OMG 80s fashion, aaaaaaaaaaaahhh!!!"

Youtube did all the Rickrolling for me yesterday. ^_~

so last night on TV i saw a commercial for FFVII for the PSP and I didn't really think anything of it because I don't have a PSP.

Are we saying Sony wasted millions of advertising dollars on a joke?

dorchadas: Terminatordorchadas on April 2nd, 2008 05:41 pm (UTC)
No, that was probably an ad for Crisis Core.
Jnytesenvy on April 2nd, 2008 05:44 pm (UTC)
oh good. i wasn't really paying that close of attention to it.

You play homeworl??? Dude we should totally match up. Plus I think classic homeworld is the best, how about you?
dorchadas: Gendowneddorchadas on April 3rd, 2008 07:33 pm (UTC)
I've only played the first one. Well, and one match of the expansion where I won due to a lucky cross-map show with the Taiidan death star laser superweapon.

Homeworld multiplayer is all kinds of fun though, and I did reinstall it. :)
