Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?
I find it a bit odd that Gamereactor.eu is a relatively inactive (dead) site. The potential is huge! In essence Gamereactor started out as a scandinavian thing, and don't scandinavian people love to speak english? I thought so at first, but perhaps I am mistaken.
Come on now
I hear you're feeling down
Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again
Alright, maybe the use of the lyrics from Comfortably Numb as a tool in this blog is flawed. I do not, I repeat, do not make any claims whatsoever to get this site on its feet again. (Partly because this site never were on its feet, heh...) I just enjoy writing in english every once in awhile. Perhaps this post is my last on here, or the first of many. I haven't really planned that far (or at all).
Oh, way to get all riled up for nothing. Okay. Relax.
I'll need some information first.
Just the basic facts
Can you tell me where it hurts?
I am Livlig, a moderator from the swedish site and a gamer since 1996. A Nintendo Entertainment System when I was five years old and suddenly my whole life was set out for me. I would play video games like a deranged schizophrenic. It's a good thing. As of now I am employed in a book store, and have branched out from gaming to books, movies and music. I try to experience anything capable of making me feel something. Emotionally evocative is what I seek and generelly receive.
There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship's smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
There's few things lacking in the editorial apartment. The reviews just keep on coming, and the news section is surprisingly in-depth considering the community part of the site is kind of... absent. However I am not complaining, and Gamereactor.eu is a given in my RSS-feed. There's nothing wrong with this site other its lack of members.
When I was a chid I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I got that feeling once again
I can't explain, you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb
Now I realize I am not really contributing all that too much. This is the first blog I doodled on this site, or at least the earliest one I can still remember. And I am not active in the forums, although I have at least been somewhat visible there. But then again, I am an oddity. I don't generally get into discussions anymore. When I write, I write larger things. Projects, and such. Mostly for myself and not for others to see (that's subject to change).
Ok, just a little pin prick
There'll be no more
But you might feel a little sick
Actually I feel fine so these particular lines of lyrics doesn't work that well in this context.
Can you stand up?
I do believe it's working good
That'll keep you going, through the show
Come on it's time to go
The end is nigh, I have to wrap this up.
When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown the dream sd gone
I have become comfortably numb
This post is not a resolution kind of thing. I am not pledging my allegiance to this site, nor promising to contribute heavily to the well being of it. This is more a statement. Gamereactor.eu deserves more members, I guess is the jist of what I'm trying to say. I am, though, incoherrent and bored. Also, I don't have enough coffee in my belly. Which is another problem. We'll see if I can be found here again or if this is the first of few sporadic visits.
In any case. Cheerio!
