When I was younger I used to go to a friend’s house and play Magic: The Gathering and D&D. I’ve played all the Pokémon versions for the Game Boy and I’m currently paying 15 dollars every month to play a MMORPG. Yes, I am a geek and I’m so proud of being one.
A few years ago, I met her in my English institute. I still remember sitting in front of her, she looked gorgeous and not only that, but she was extremely smart too. She had an accent, a Spanish one, just like mine. It was love at first sight! I so wanted to talk with her, but I just couldn’t. You see, I’m quite shy so I wasn’t able to talk with her until 2 days before the course finished. The teacher chose partners for a little classwork. Of course, we ended up in the same group. That’s when I noticed something that I couldn’t believe.
“Is… is that an Alliance hoodie you’re wearing?”
Yes, the extremely gorgeous girl who I was too shy to talk with turned out to be an avid World of Warcraft player.
Who did I meet that day? I met the girl who would later become my girlfriend. It’s been almost 4 years now!
The Future Soon has always been one of my favorite Jonathan Coulton‘s songs. One day, a friend of mine told me to check out this video. I giggled. Mike “Spiff” Booth made such an amazing job to create a machinima that clearly translates what JoCo wanted to transmit when he was writing the lyrics for this song.
This video was created almost 4 years ago and was a finalist in the Action/Adventure category in the Blizzcon 2008 machinima contest. I’ve never stopped watching it, and figured the Lore Hounds wouldn’t mind it either.
Let me finish this article by paraphrasing Mike Booth when he wrote the description of “The Future Soon”.
All you jocks and cool kids beware. Because in the future, nerds will rule the world, and it’ll be the future soon…
