Hello and good Easter Monday to all the Top Men and Top Women out there. It’s blog time and that’s what I’m gonna do.
So back when I was a smaller child than I am today, I came across this 45 record (it was a thing kids) called the Easter Bunny Hop. It was a disco Easter song for kids. I listened to it a lot and then I never found it again. No idea what happened to it. Over time, the only thing I could remember was the chorus. So today being Easter Monday and a blog day, I thought I’d look to see if I could find the song on YouTube and lo and behold, there it was. Not only that, but I discovered it was actually from a Quebec artist, which was surprising considering it was in English. Listening to it today, I can definitely recognize that the artist, Evelyne John was a francophone singing in English, but back then…No clue. So there’s a little Easter story for you all this year.
I had three great days of gaming this weekend. Thursday night was with my mom. Saturday and Sunday I spent at Les Dés Truqués. I introduced two of the people from the store to Star Wars Destiny and they both enjoyed the game. I also got to play plenty of other games, like Rivet Wars, Tem-purra, Parade, Battle Sheep, Heroes for Hire (not a Marvel game), Santorini, Karuba, Chunky Fighters and Adrenaline. If I had to pick a favorites of the new games I tried, it would be Battle Sheep and Karuba. Chunky Fighters was a disappointment, though it looked like a great idea on paper. We only played the introductory scenario but it didn’t entice me at all into playing the full game. Adrenaline is a game that simulates third person shooters. It’s good. It’s just not for me.
Friday was a drawing day. If it hadn’t been for that, I probably would have spent Friday at Les Dés Truqués as well. But, I have to keep a little discipline, right?
While I was drawing, I was listening to the latest episode of Critical Role. Once again, I’m convinced that Sam Riegel is a comedic genius. His choices are almost always spot on. While it seemed impossible to top Scanlan, Taryon is definitely holding his own as a character.
That’s all for this week. Back to the grind tomorrow. Have a good seven and we’ll do this all again next Monday. Carja V.
Oh…and here’s a link to the Easter Bunny Hop so you won’t have to go look for it yourselves.
