happy

Yay!

/me is very happy with his CDs :) Listened to them all day at work yesterday, and in the car on the way home (at 11:15 last night =P ) and the way back to work this morning :) Haven't gotten very much into the SquareDance one yet, don't know if that's just cause i'm not as familiar with it yet, or cause it's not as good. I was expecting it to be the low point out of the four anyways, so i'm not really bothered.

I'd just like to say though, Xenogears sounds a _lot_ like Chrono Trigger, at least for a few specific tracks. I know _why_ that is, but it's still kind of disturbing to be listening to the Xenogears CD and suddenly be listening to a song my mind initially interprets as being from Chrono Trigger.

Hmmm, since i'm _way_ behind on my video game playing, who out there has started (or finished =) playing Xenosaga? How similar is the music to Xenogears/Chrono Trigger?

Hypothetically

Let's suppose that there are two (or more) smallishly sized bullies standing around. Then a big bully walks up, and says to the first bully, "I know you've got some weapons, you really don't want me to beat you up, so why don't you get rid of them?"

Maybe the first bully is intimidated, maybe not, but he starts emptying out his pockets. A rusty knife, some brass knuckles, etc. Then the big bully says, "that's nice, but you're not going fast enough, i bet you've got more than that" and while the smaller bully is still emptying out his pockets, the big bully jumps on him, throws him to the ground, and starts beating the crap out of him. Maybe the smaller bully had something more than a knife, maybe not, it will take awhile to dig through his blood encruted pockets after the fact to find out after the fact.

Meanwhile the second small bully is frantically trying to load a gun while watching the first bully get beaten to a pulp.

So now, the big bully gets up, smears some of the blood off his fists and turns to the second bully and says, "I know you've got some weapons, why don't you get rid of them so we can be friends?"

What do you think that second bully is going to do?

Yup, that's what i thought too.

(And of course meanwhile, several of the other smaller sized bullies are eying each other and wondering if they can get away with the same thing while the big bully is distracted)
