It’s back to The Lad’s games. The Purging Lutheran thought I was done with them but – yoiks and away! –here we are vis yet another. This time it’s Fallout 3. What more can be said about these games where the protagonist is dressed to the hilt in metal and steel? How about this – Why does he have a spatula on his helmet? I don’t know about dystopian futures and all but will breakfast items like eggs-sunnyside-up be a big deal after the crumbling of Western Civilization? You’d thinking in a world of total mayhem and destruction scrambled eggs would suffice.
Anyhoo, any right-thinking fella in today’s post-modern culture would certainly hear the word ‘fallout’ and think of ‘Fall Out Boy’, a Simpson’s character played by Milhouse Van Houten.
Director: We have got to do the “jiminy jilickers” scene again, Milhouse.
Milhouse: But we already did it. It took us seven hours, but we did it. It’s done.
Director: Yes…But we have got to do it from different angles. Again and again and again and again and again.
Poor Milhouse. He wants so hard to be wanted. No matter, he’ll bounce back, right? Long story short, this game was traded in for credit for other games. Adios, amoeba!
Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.
