The Party Scene

Writer's Block: Know by Heart

Have you ever thought you knew the words to a song and then been shocked to find out what the lyrics really were? What was the song? Did you like your version better?


Embrace - "Wonder"
Actual : "You were mine, and now you're mine to want"
My version : "You were 9, and now you're 91"

The Verve - "The Drugs Don't Work"
Actual : "The drugs don't work"
My version (and everyone's) : "The trucks don't work"

Erm .... are these better!? :P I wasn't so much "shocked" to find out, but it took me a long time before I realised what the actual words were! (:

Bikstarrr.

And so, here we have it, another entry about a messageboard from, and I quote, "some stupid live journal" (from either TDR or Embrace.co.uk millions of years ago). Heh, this LJ's put me through a lot. But anyway.

No, it's not because I don't have the time, because I do.
No, it's not because I've become enamoured with the idea of building a "micronation" with Birdie and/or David, though it would be nice to get that going.
I simply cannot handle it.

I've pushed myself to my absolute limits with this. Made new versions, rewritten old ones, taken it to pieces and put it back together again. I'm thinking fresh start and have new ideas to build on, but why build something up if I know that I'm only going to tear it down again? What is the point of this? Why do I carry on?

For the community, that's why. People like David, Raphaela, Lee, Sav, Moujie, Caitelynne, Henrah, Cody Goggins, Chrissy, Old Gregg (honourable mention for being my one and only mod and having a mangina) and many more, who have tried to keep this going for me, even when I have failed to do so. They have kept it going for me, and for our now defunct "home" of The Rockstar Game. Isn't it only fair that I give something back? Yes.

I must add, TBSG will never be TRSG. Contrary to popular belief (I was quite surprised at how popular this belief was!), I am not Carl Ellis, and I could never create something like that. What I wanted with TBSG was 1. a forum to bring all us TRSG immigrants (and, hopefully, some new users) together, and 2. a new, interesting, worthwhile music game that people could play and enjoy. I attracted a fair amount of TRSG users, but failed to deliver on the game. It's a slight shock to the system that it lasted so many months!

So, to end it or not to end it? That, my friends, is the current big question for me.
