Try not to make a reference to coating yourself in gravy and throwing yourself at a meat-obsessed Coolio, the man just passed away recently and I know the joke at the end was totally awesome but it’s too soon right now
Note to self: GRAVY BURGER with POUTINE TOPPING (doable? check notes)
Bonus question: What’s your favorite song that came out in the same century as your birth but before you were born? (We’re aiming for pop culture here, not classical music, hence the specificity.)
Ben Griggs (@braxwolf): Mostly World of Warships, as I’ve still got a couple of weeks worth of missions left to unlock the Puerto Rico. Hopefully I’ll be able to join at least one fleet in EVE Online as well.
Bonus question: Wow, this is a tough one. I generally consider the mid to late 60s and early 90s as the best eras for rock music. I’m tempted to go the easy route and say Stairway to Heaven, but Hey Jude and Revolution 9 should also be considered. Perhaps I should go more obscure and throw out Grand Ennui by Michael Nesmith. In the end, the one song that I can never help but sing along to when it comes on is Black Water by the Doobie Brothers, so I guess that’s where I’ve landed.
I wouldn’t even know where to start on the bonus question. That is like picking a favorite child – if you had 100 children. (The correct answer in that situation would be Derek. -Ed)
Chris Neal (@wolfyseyes, blog): I’m probably going to zero in on more Star Trek Online, primarily with a focus on maybe actually learning how best to kit out my ship for my playstyle. Which basically means I’ll be doing a bunch of reading. That’s kind of about it to be very honest.
Man, answers to these “one song” questions never really come easy as my mind went flying to a lot of things, like Ziggy Stardust’s Starman, Frank Zappa’s Zomby Woof, or pretty much anything by Julie London. However, after a bit of introspection, I fell upon Jethro Tull, the Aqualung album in particular, and Locomotive Breath in specific – a perfect encapsulation of why that band absolutely rules.
Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): So I review a lot of games, but this weekend I actually have a new game to review that is a game I have also been looking forward to for ages, so I am super excited to dive into it. As such, I’m not even going to pretend that’s not my main priority for this weekend. I suppose I’ll log in to Final Fantasy XIV just the same.
So I’m going to break my own rules (because everyone else did anyway) and list four songs here. First, Simon & Garfunkel’s America, because that’s what I was listening to when I asked the question. Come Go With Me by the Del-Vikings, for my father, for reasons that I will not explain. The Chain by Fleetwood Mac for my mother, and if that sounds like a backhanded insult, you’re wrong; it’s more of a fronthanded one. And last but not least, Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen because we always need Queen in our lives.
Sam Kash (@thesamkash): This is a big football weekend for me so I probably won’t play games much. I’ll still login to get my MultiVersus dailies but I think I might be starting to slow down on that. They haven’t opened ranked mode yet and I’m just starting to hit my limit where I have to ask myself what’s the point of playing this. Next week the Mad King returns, so I’ll be preparing for that. If I keep telling myself I’ll try The Elder Scrolls Online again, maybe I’ll do that too.
Bonus: Jack and Diane by John Cougar Melloncamp. There’s a lot of great songs out there but I’ll listen to this on the regular.
