I was considering talking about the planning process for Nano Wrimo, but since I lack one at the moment, I don’t think that it would make any sense. I considered discussing my Halloween costume, but since there are people that would read it that shouldn’t know what it is yet, I decided against that. So what does that leave me to talk about? Well…
For one, if you can get the demo to BrÃ¼tal Legend, you should get your hands on it. It’s a video game that stars Jack Black and a dozen other musicians and actors (including Tim Curry, who is the shit). Jack Black plays Eddie, a metal band roadie that gets sent to a world right out of heavy metal album covers (seriously, that’s what the game’s artwork is based on). He fights demons and battle nuns and stuff with a battle axe and a guitar (an “axe” guitar, for that matter, which he can shoot electricity from), and rides around in a hot rod he builds from spare parts. The acting seems pretty superb, the writing is hilarious, and the music is 108 tracks across various metal genres from 75 different artists (from Ozzy to Megadeth to bands you’ve never even heard of, unless maybe you’re Brandon or Ian).Â If you’re not a fan of metal, you’ll still love it for the hilarious nature, and the relatively easy controls.
Although, seriously, the music alone is awesome.
So there’s that. Also, last weekend, I went out to the Sunset Bar & Grill with my roommate and his friend, where we ate nachos and drank beer (management even bought us a round). Which was fun and all.
Oh, and I totally high-fived a monkey.
Her name is Crystal, and she’s a Capuchin. She apparently works in film and TV. Her handler here was in town with her filming something, and although I want it to be Y: The Last Man I don’t actually believe it is. I’ll still keep my fingers crossed there.
Either way, she totally knows how to high-five, so she was high-fiving people left and write. Saturday nights are awesome. I need more of them, I think.
