Some songs.. they really really really REALLY need to take out of circulation. The Supremes' Song, "Stayin' Alive" just HAS to go. It was cute a few years back. Now it's overused (I've seen it four times in 3 years) and anyways no longer the point with Obama president-elect.
But they had some GREAT new Material (Seeing Putin, Medvedev and.. some unknown third person dancing around, clapping their hands, etc.) to "Midnight Raid to Georgia" had me nearly rolling along the floor laughing. It was AWESOME! :D
Though Tina Fey does a much better Palin then the Capitol Steps does. (The Capitol Steps performer kept dropping her accent. Though.. how she was going to deal with foreign powers like Russia... also left me rolling along the floor (she whipped her hair out of the bun, and started running her hands down her body. Then... THEN.. to show that Biden knows how to play the game, he, too, started running his hands around his body. Oh my god, it was funny.)
So.. all in all, a great show! :D
Studying.. is going along. I did a lot on Saturday, a little on Sunday and will do a little more Wednesday. It's tough.. and I'm really struggling with the questions, but.. I'm also probably learning too.
I had a nightmare Saturday, though, that the test was five weeks ago and woke up freaking out (feeling kinda freaked out most of yesterday, really)
Speaking of the Presidential Candidates, I nearly died.. there was a Producer Event in Norway last week, and they released a couple of official videos. The first was a fight between Biden and Palin at the steps of city hall (Palin picked a fight with Biden, they fought for a while and Palin kicked Biden's butt.) and then.. a dance-off, I guess, between Palin and a less-than-adequate McCain. Which was.. mind breaking. :)
There are other videos from the Norway Producer Event, quite a lot, really. So.. some real details about what the game entails are filtering through.. and I'm REALLY impressed.
I have some less-than-lovely things to say about EA and some of the directions they've taken recently. Alot of the stuff they've put out recently has not lived up to expectations. Spore.. was.. OK. Just OK. It didn't deliver up to the hype it's still getting. Simcity Societies.. wasn't good at all. MySims.. crap. Simcity Creator.. crap. Not to mention that I'm not thrilled with the DRM software, SecuRom, they keep sticking on the games.
But Sims 3... clearly they've been LISTENING to their players. I have no doubts whatsoever that, so long as the game runs, that this game is going to deliver and will be better than Sims 2. No doubt.
In fact, i was obsessing to K about Sims 3, and kinda sad because I realize once I GET Sims 3.. Sims 2 will probably go away. K may play it, here and there, but.. it'll be like saying goodbye to an old friend. Sims 2 and I have been buddies for five years so it'll be sad to see some of it go. K points out it might be worth it to 'say goodbye' properly. :) So... I've spent some time and will probably continue to spend some time, when I can, playing Sims and living their lives out for them. :)
Which is good for my SimGod blog. It gives me something to talk about. :D
So.. *checks time* Time to get to work. See y'all at lunch. :)
