Happy 2 Year Anniversary, Dear

On February 5, 2006 I was in the library trying to write. I wasn't working on anything for school (heaven forbid I do that), instead I was trying to work on some "creative fiction." And it was hard. No matter what I did I couldn't get anything (decent) to come out. So I got up, and stretched my legs a bit.

I was on the top floor of the Thomas Jefferson Library, which is where they keep the "periodicals." That's just a fancy name for "not books" or "bought at a news stand." Anyway, I started picking up these "not books." They had so many, on a variety of subjects, most were pretty boring (HERBS, the magazine? I'm sure you find that interesting, but I don't...) eventually a writing magazine caught my eye, I leafed though it--looking for an answer to my problems.

"An article on writer's block! Perfect," I mumbled among the stacks of magazines.

One of the things the author suggested was starting a "blog." I'd heard a lot of "blog" talk, but didn't really know too much about them. I knew that a lot of annoying people used them as public diaries. Which isn't what I wanted to do...but I'm afraid that's all THOUGHTS OF A LIMEMONKEY is, at the end of the day.



I can justify it, though, because I don't live in KC anymore. Maybe someone there is interested in the small, mundane things I do out here in "arch-land." I will say that this blog has kept me in contact with people who I'd otherwise probably never hear from again. That's a good thing. Anyway, if I stopped today--I'd still have two years worth of strange, boring, and sometimes mildly entertaining posts. And at the end of the day, that ain't bad.

Congrats man! You check out the new stuff on Rockband today?

Jason said...

Thank you Becky. Of course I did!!! In fact, I have the wiki page bookmarked that lists the content (it gets updated the day before the items are put up for sale). They actually have a bunch of new stuff listed on the wiki page that goes beyond this week.

ANYWAY (that was a bit too much info)...today I downloaded the B52 song. I'm not interested in the Kiss song too much, though (as Kiss are WAAAAAY to over-marketed). If I had more money, I'd get the Smashing Pumpkins and Coheed and Cambria songs from last week. But I only had enough points to buy one song, so I got "Roam." It's great.

Also, Leah beat the vocals on HARD today.

Have you seen this forum site for Rockband: http://www.rockband.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=5. All the wiki stuff comes from there announcements forums I believe.

Jason said...

Yeah, I've nosed around on the forums a few times...I like the Wiki article because they break the songs down by difficulty for you (I hate how you don't know how hard a song is until you buy it). They announce the new songs every Monday...one week at a time...isn't that lame?

I want the whole months worth of new content!!!

What's up with the "Full albums"? When is that happening? No one seems to know, have you heard?
