US News Wrap, September 30 – What Happened Today
Many things happened today. Some nice, some not so nice. Well, you all read things on the Internet, I don’t need to tell you about it all.
Today is the last day of September, but since I always have to have everything symmetric (I blame that on being a Libra instead of OCD), you have one more day of music headers to finish out your week.
It has been rather hard on me, honestly, choosing which bands or artists to use as I am a fan of so many different genres, tastes, and styles. Granted, as you probably noticed, I gravitate more towards “metal” and “alternative” (does that even hold meaning anymore?) female vocalists. However, if you were to look through my iTunes list or even my Army trunk full of CDs (not to mention my many boxes of cassette tapes, albums, and 45s) you would find anything and everything under the sun.
Music is indeed my first love, and while it has taken a while for it to get here, my piano will finally arrive sometime next week. It’s a long story as to why it is not in my possession just yet, but instead of ranting about who is to blame for its absence and why (@#$%ing bastard), let’s just say I am pleased as punch I will finally be able to tickle the ivory again, soon. Cross your fingers for me at least. I need some sort of creative outlet in my life, because I can’t knit worth a damn.
Now, let’s get you caught up on my shift before my RSS feed explodes and I feel compelled to keep working.

They have said this enough now, I reckon.
Bad news, but it’s for a good reason.
Crazy kids just can’t get enough of their Minecraft.
Sorry to be bearer of bad news on that one. Don’t blame the messenger, etc.
I can’t decide if that is expensive or not, but it sure sounds it.
At least the team is working on what matters first.
Yes! This looks better and better every time I watch it.
Hopefully, this video explains things a bit.
Finally dated, and with tons of goodies.
Might have to give this a try, even though I am terrible at PvP. Well, unless I am kicking Ron’s ass in LOTRO.
This post contains ZERO SPOILERS.
People in the US love Wii.
Hopefully this made your day.
Intriguing, but I have yet to play a Mass Effect game in the first place to be even remotely interested in the possibility of an MMO on it – yet. Yes, I know, I suck. Alright?
Whip out yer wallets.
Oh ABBA. I loved your fashion sense when I was a little kid. I don’t now, though.
I will be interested to see the figures from this week when they are released.
Have a Happy Friday night!
