Sickness and an 8-Bit Remix
Well, I am back, but not better than ever, as the saying normally goes. On Wednesday night, I had gone to the E.R. I was in a lot of pain and was very concerned. After going to the hospital and then seeing a specialist I was assured that it was nothing serious. I’m just going to leave it at that since it’s a rather touchy subject. Maybe some other point down the road I’ll tell you. I’m sure you missed me right? Sorry I haven’t been commenting either. I’ve just been really out of it since I’m on pain killers.
Let me take the time to introduce you to an 8-bit Mixtape created by Eclectic Method. This music video compilation of old school video game sound bytes and clips from different video games is extraordinary! It is one of a kind, at least to my knowledge. You have to take a listen for yourself. If you grew up in the 80’s or 90’s you’ll totally appreciate this video. Here is how Eclectic Method describes it.
Launching live on the Creators Project this morning, 8-Bit is a video microsite, mixtape, and Mp3 dedicated to the 8 bit games and consoles from way back in the day. Nintendo, Sega, Atari classic games like Mario, Tetris and Paperboy get taken apart and remixed. Sonic the hedgehog makes an appearance in MarioLand, Mario beats drums in Contra Level 1 and Biggie Smalls’ 8bit self raps about computer consoles. Check the mp3 for the extended audio mix.

Day 8: Someone who has made your life hell or treated you like shit.
This one goes to none other than dear old pops. Although he might mean well at times, he still has no idea of how to handle kids. I mean, he has been good to me at times, but overall, he’s been a total dick. Sorry…this one is being cut short. I can’t talk about him. It makes me really angry.
