Because the song is a bit tarnished from Fallout 76, I vote that “Country Roads” be featured in the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077:
If the game bombs, we might have to consider the idea that John Denver has cursed his own music and haunting all projects that license it.
• Firstly, rest in peace to Monty Python alum, Sir Terry Jones. Apart from his work in one of the most famous comedy groups in the world, I’ll always remember him for his very enjoyable BBC series, Medieval Lives and Crusades. The “living paintings” in that latter one really stuck with me.
• From the Lovecraft story, “From Beyond,” here’s one propmaker’s version of the Tillinghast Device. It’s perfect for your next cult rave.
• And turning to actual issues of mental health, here’s an interesting look at a notebook from an asylum inmate in the 1930’s and the odd journey they took.
• Here’s some truly loaded dice for your next D&D session: They’ve got sapphires and a $300 price tag, so even if you roll a 1, you can claim it’s only the finest quality critical failure.
• Speaking of special-interest items of rare quality, if there’s a zombie in your life that turns up where its nose used to be at pedestrian gray matter, perhaps it would prefer to dine on a hunk of human brain that survived for 2600 years. That’s some well-aged nosh, there.
• Turning to the theater, start coming up with joke names for songs and see which ones actually show up in the upcoming Karate Kid musical. I can’t wait to see the “wax on, wax off” choreography along with a chorus line of people sweeping the leg.
• And our ending game is a bit like the one available on Steam called “Hidden Folks.” This one is Heartreasure, and your goal is to click on hearts to unlock new areas. Sometimes the unlock for one place is in another, so if you can’t find the trigger, move on to a different zone. Also, it helps to be able to tell where notes are on a treble scale.
