Lofty Peculiarities

Everyone's just a step away from normal.

Tall and Weird
23 November
I'm a tall and weird guy.

Random thought appears to be a hobby of mine. Not five minutes ago ... I had an idea that could've changed the world, but I forgot it when I had another. Something about squirrels, I think.

My default picture is from an old Playstation ad that I have recently discovered was called the Double Life ad. This kid said (with a very odd accent) "... and conquered worlds ..." I got shivers. Truly.

Here's the words of the ad:

Double Life.

For years, I've lived a double life.
In the day, I do my job -
I ride the bus, roll up my sleeves with the hoi-polloi.
But at night, I live a life of exhilaration,
of missed heartbeats and adrenalin.
And, if the truth be known, a life of dubious virtue.
I won't deny it -
I've been engaged in violence, even indulged in it.
I've maimed and killed adversaries,
and not merely in self-defence.
I've exhibited disregard for life, limb and property,
and savoured every moment.
You may not think it, to look of me,
but I have commanded armies, and conquered worlds.
And though in achieving these things I've set morality aside,
I have no regrets.
For though I've led a double life, at least I can say - I've lived.

If you're really interested in the ad, you can view it here.
