Saturday is almost Friday

Last weekend was okay.

Now I know where "The cake is a lie" comes from.  How come no one ever told me about this before? Maybe because I am not a "gamer" but is that really an excuse?  I mean, it is a puzzle game.  And it is so funny.  I was caught smiling at one point.  What they don't know is that I almost laughed.

But I never thought I'd ever have to really explain my youtube phobia.  

So, the guys were playing Portal and when it got to the song at the end, I was like oh, hey, I really like this song.
They were like, "Yeah? You want it?"  And I was like, "sure, where can I get it?"  And they were all, "Here" and hit google, and the next thing I knew, it was playing on youtube.  I left the room.  It was that or freak out, you know?  So there was a lot of confusion. They stopped it and got it off the screen.  I came back into the room all trembling and stuff.

It really messes me up, you know?  I have to be so careful about what links I click on and stuff.  

Yes, I really am really lame.

Still Alive Lyrics
This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.
Aperture Science
We do what we must
because we can.
For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.
But there's no sense crying over every mistake.
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are still alive.
I'm not even angry.
I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
And we're out of beta.
We're releasing on time.
So I'm GLaD. I got burned.
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are still alive.
Go ahead and leave me.
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.
Maybe Black Mesa
Anyway, this cake is great.
It's so delicious and moist.
Look at me still talking
when there's Science to do.
When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I'm not you.
I've experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
On the people who are still alive.
And believe me I am still alive.
I'm doing Science and I'm still alive.
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive.
While you're dying I'll be still alive.
And when you're dead I will be still alive.


  1. Portal is an awesome game! If you didn't have youtubephobia, I'd send you a link to the trailer for the sequel, which looks to be equally awesome. :) If you don't have it already, i could probably get an mp3 of the song for you if you want.

  2. Well, he gave me the link. I have a youtube download utility that can pull the flash without using a browser. So... as long as I _trust_ the link, I can get the video and watch it in a flash player. Which I have done for this. But I have not extracted the audio to mp3 so I can just put it in my playlist.

    I would not mind if you sent it, if you have it, but don't go out of your way or anything. Because I am sure I can extract the audio.
