Some Good News?

I haven't slept at night for about five days due to the Unholy Trinity of the jerk across the hallway and his TV at max volume all night, a guy that doesn't understand the concept of a call button and will yell "HALP!" all night, and my roommate who sounds like an Apollo moon rocket when he snores and he snores all night.

The morning headaches are amazing. The breakfasts somewhat less so.

And despite all of that, I have a smile on my face. Why?

I'm going back to Duckford. Not to Pond Central, alas, but I'll at least have the possibility of seeing family and friends. I'm being moved to the Duckford branch of the chain of LTC facilities. And its only a few miles from Pond Central.

Saturday morning is D-Day.  This pleases me. A lot.

Any of you watch "reaction videos"? A guy plays a song for the first time (allegedly) and... well, reacts to it. 90% of these are total crap. Another 9% are mostly crap. It's that last 1% that has a chance of being watchable.

I've been listening to a lot of loud, fast music just to keep me interested during my workout.

There's been a lot of music from Mick Gordon punishing my eardrums recently, from Doom and Doom Eternal's ost.  What I've learned is that the best music reactions come from professional musicians... go figure, right?

I found this one at random, and it's hilarious. NSFW language, but you probably expected that.

This next one isn't quite as good, but his facial expressions are classic.

Did I mention I'm going back to Duckford?

5 I watched a few reaction videos for Youjo Senki (Saga of Tanya The Evil) ep.1, for the laugh factor of liberal college graduates who know nothing about WW2 and less than nothing about WW1.

6 Pete, that sounds like it would have been fun... like sitting in the balcony, throwing popcorn at the people below.,
