Bohemian Coaster

I love me Rollercoaster Tycoon. It’s next there with Halo as the game I’ve sunk more hours of my life into (and I’ve sunk months of time into Halo). That being said, with the exception of the stupid object limit, I’ve perfered the original unaltered version of the game over the Open RCT alternative where you can add all sorts of weird things such as the switches and track merging things in this coaster.

Anyway, those things make this coaster pretty awesome. There’s no way it’s realistic, look at some of the G-Forces it’s pulling in the curves when the music starts up. Still, pretty ace if you ask me.

I didn’t realize it until almost the end, but the coaster even travels over a virtual set of piano keys. Very detailed work on this masterpiece, very detailed indeed.

Video Chat to the Rescue

https://youtu.be/Fs-PQoxQzno

Yea, this is pretty frekin ace. Yes, I like the Backstreet Boys, deal with it. This video is an awesome way to be stuck within quarantine isolation. Plus it’s perfect to get stuck in your head.

It’s also amazing to see how much some of the aged, and how some look still pretty young. Anyway, enjoy this on your Monday.

Thunder Baby

Sure, it’s not 2 Cellos, but it’s still an amazing rendition of Thunderstruck. I do say though, it probably took way longer than would have liked to edit this. Video editing sucks.

The Day

The Music Died.

Most of us have no relocation of this day as it happened in 1959, but countless people have been influenced by the terrible day in music history.

I came across this article a few weeks ago, yes it might be over 10 years old, but it goes into great detail about things related to that day.

You all should remember it.

That is all.

Bon Jovi in the Park

That is all there is too it. Some guy casually singing Livin’ on a Prayer when the whole park gets together and sings along with him. Pretty wholesome, pretty ace.

Great Videos of The Past

My fiancee was showing me something the other day.  It was a video that she loved in her younger days of the internet.  Before Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, reddit, all of those things.  Back when you had to actually search for quality (or lack of) humor on the internetz.  Many hours were spent stumbling around the internet looking for things, and finding things.  I can’t remember where exactly I first saw the video, and I know I posted about it before but I can’t find it.  Anyway, I had to show her the infamous Benny Lava.

Benny Lava is superior to whatever you might be thinking.  It’s a classic internet video.  It’s not necessarily as wide spread as The Ultimate Showdown, but it’s far more known than Electronik Supersonik which I also had to show her:

Yes nostalgia and the internet go hand in hand.  It’s almost like the internet was made for it.

Anyway, I’ve posted the above videos again because they are amazing and you have to watch them.

Today is Important

Do you know what today is?  It’s an important day.  It comes once a year and people all over the world have wondered why.

No, it’s not The Super Bowl, it’s The Day the Music Died.  Made famous by Don McLean’s classic song, American Pie, the world of music forever changed when Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens died in a plane crash in Iowa on a cold morning in 1959.  Sixty years ago today the world of music was broken.

McLean would go on to write the song that generations of Americans have spent trying to figure out, yet there is still a healthy debate as to what every line means.

One thing is certain though, the song is a masterpiece, but so were those who died in the plane crash.

Listen to the song, and remember the good times of the late 1950s.

New Shoes

You may or may not have noticed, but the blog has some new shoes on.  A few weeks ago the server went kapoot.  I don’t know exactly what happened, I think there was a storm and surge and the server wouldn’t boot.  Either way, the server is up and running now.  I had been in the process of changing over to a new server, I just did not have everything set up and working yet.   And that is why the default theme is here.  I haven’t moved the old one over yet.

In the mean time, enjoy the single:

Alternate History Thursday: State of the Union?

It’s 2018, a year has passed since our reflection on the events of SONY.  With the Mafia taking over Mexico, and the release of the millions of people from NYC, the United States was on wobbly ground in the new years.  Redistricting of the nation, and redistribution of the population caused a major upheaval of the status quo.  The newly elected President Donald Trump of the Sinker party pledged to bring America back to it’s greatness.  One of the millions effected by SONY, Trump handidly defeated everyone in the run up.

He wasn’t exactly a universally loved President, but he got the job done.  In one term he turned the nation around.  Much of the economic collapse caused by SONY was reversed with the major undertaking to open up the subsurface of NYC to mining.  While there was no gold to be found (which was the cause of the whole event), there was plenty of other natural resources just sitting on the floor of the Bay Of New York.  Highly sought after government contracts and grants were up for bid to clean up the floor.  Trump had a vision of opening the By of New York as a major shipping route, historical area, and tourist draw.  Much of the land has historical significance.

Skeptics said that Trump only wanted the contents of his tower to be recovered.  Either way, he brought about trillions of dollars of investment and innovation to the world.

One major discovery was the underbelly of the ocean.  All that innovation around underwater salvage brought about discovery of the world’s seas and oceans.  Most of the scientific money went to the mid-atlantic ridge.  But some skeptics were able to use money for the Bermuda Triangle.  What they found there will change the world forever.
