The Winter Cometh and the Winter Taketh

It's cold, grey and really ****ty in general. Winter is here and to me that only means one thing.



Fiona Apple. And lots of it.

Speaking of feeling cold, grey and ****ty in general, how about that Duke Nukem Forever trailer, eh? I'm with Tiff on this one, but my fascination with this game will never end! It even owes me five bucks! Back in the 90's, I walked into my local Software Etc and put down a pre-order for what was sure to be the hit of the holiday season, Duke Nukem Forever.

Yes, I had to go to Software Etc, which is what they called GameStop in those days, to pre-order the game. So I tied a Pocket Pikachu to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now to pre-order the game it cost $5 dollars, and in those days, $5 dollar bills had pictures of bumblebees on them! Now where were we? Oh ya.. The important thing was that I had a Pocket Pikachu on my belt.

Three or four years later, that Software Etc closed down and with it, my bumblebee money. The moral of the story is to not live in the days prior to the Internet. You'll lose all your bumblebees.
