Thanks ! Gainsbourg will remain one of the greatest French songwriter ever. 8)
Yet, nobody can claim to sing a Gainsbourg's song better than Serge "God" Gainsbourg himself did. :P

Queen topic coming up?
Why not ? ;)


Anyway, my "song of the day" today is Colombian : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZXlgNMDK3E

The first time I heard this band was during an episode of Dexter (not Dexter's laboratory cartoon, I mean Dexter Morgan, the serial killer :P).
It was the 4th or 5th season (I don't remember) when the cop team was in a night club and the song was performing and I thought "wow, this is something special, worth searching for". I finally found what it was a few days later and kept it in my mind to go back listening it from time to time. Today is one of those times. :D

Strange, I also remember this song.

(Guess who was Dexter Morgan in ZSC 2011 ;D)

Now it's time to show something from the good old USSR: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJj9y4t9UnU

Techno remix of the same (just skip the first minute...): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipE9QFiWhzQ

Somehow I like this. Don't ask why, I can't find it out.

Stop living up to computer game player stereotypes!!

With all that dubious metal music, you should set up a WOW account immediately and start playing Diablo and Baldur's Gate also.


Well, this is asking for a flamewar.. Too "bad" we are too old to flaming. Or not? ;) For me this is insulting post. I love BG as much as I hate Diablo and I don't think the metal music is dubious (at least things I listen to aren't).

Uhh.. Well, it's catchy. :)

I hate this kind of music. Really

I honestly didn't know there was a cultural difference between Baldur's Gate and Diablo. It's interesting to hear that there is.
But we can't be quite sure.

Diablo is a rogue-like game with RPG elements. Baldur's Gate is a RPG game with rogue elements. ;D

Luckily I don't know these games (RPG is quite far from my taste, unless we consider ghost activity as role playing).

No, and I won't. I don't want to buy any game that requires an online connection to be activated and/or played. What companies do now is just killing the idea of abandonware. When Diablo 8 will be released in 15 years while only a dozen of people will still be playing Diablo 3 Blizzard will close Diablo 3 servers. Or when Blizzard company will close its doors, or whatever makes Blizzard servers to be closed. When this will happen, you won't be able to play Diablo 3. Never, ever.

It makes me sick to see companies acting like that. When I buy a game I don't know if I will still play it in 10 or 20 years, but I like to feel I can still play it whenever I would like. With Diablo 3 or some other new games, I know I won't be able to play them when company will decide to stop its dedicated servers.

Just like online gaming with my former x-box. Microsoft closed the original x-box live servers because there were too few people still playing online games there. Same will happen one day or another with X-box 360 servers and so on...

At least, I can still play offline with my x-box games, even if online multiplayer is now impossible. But with Diablo 3 you will not even be able to play home alone the game you bought the day Blizzard will close the dedicated servers. That's a fact. And it makes me sick.

What companies are doing nowadays with all games bought "dematerialized" (ie only bought online, you don't buy a physical CD/DVD) like with steam, or like Diablo 3 and its mandatory online access to Blizzard servers, all of this is just a way to avoid people re-sell games they have finished and they don't want to play anymore, to avoid people will less money being able to buy games cheaper a few years after at cash converters or ebay, and to kill any potential abandonware in the future.

I don't want that, so I don't buy any dematerialized version of any game, nor games that require an online version even to play solo.

Thinking of this makes me angry, so, in order to get back to the topic, I need some music with anger. I think this one is quite suitable : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NzLsxco7Dk

Musically quite good. The singer can't really sing, and the lyrics have zero connection with the song. It's like riding through the evening streets of Paris in a Land Rover.
But we can't be quite sure.
