Damn the man!
No, not Blizzard.
Me, for still not getting an actual, real post out.
I had this awesome post deconstructing Rage Normalization, breaking Rage generation itself down all nice and rational… and then my computer rebooted and wiped it. All of it. Gone.
So, yeah. Umm.
It was pretty good, you know?
Have you ever written something, and you went back and forth over it, twisted this here, nudged that there, stepped back a few times and admired something that got what you wanted to say across in an elegant way…
And then it got wiped, and you have to start over? Blank sheet of… well, blank screen and blinking cursor?
But, like… this time, you know you already said it all once, and those were some really good bits in there… and you’re not really all that sure you’re gonna get it as good the second time? In fact, you’re afraid you’re gonna forget some of the points you said the first time around, because once you fired those arrows of imagination from the bow of your frontal lobe, they’re like, gone, man?
So, while I fall back and punt, I will distract you with this filk song I wrote to the tune of the Blazing Saddles intro theme last night.
She rode a flaming dragon,
She bore a shining sword
Her cause, to bring to battle,
To the evil of the Scourge.
She conquered fear
And she conquered fate
She turned Arthas’ night into day,
She rode her flaming dragon,
Bringing hope to light the way.
Run Bear! Run like hell before they recover!
