She's moving into a new apartment of her own on Sunday... nothing big happened... it was just "time"... (or well past time)

Betrayal at House on the Hill, update.

Here is a list of the scenarios I've played or heard about, and their outcomes:

alien — five players, traitor wins (nobody_important's game)
voodoo — three players, traitor wins
worm ouroboros — six players, game unfinished
abyss — three players, heroes win
invisible killer — three players, traitor wins
time bombs — three players, heroes win
chess match with Death — three players, heroes win (gameplay similar to alien scenario)

It seems that the heroes and traitors win with about equal frequency, but must play more to see if that holds true. Still haven't seen (finished) any monster scenarios...

We got to play two more scenarios this weekend: one where the traitor had to let a number of spectres into the house while the survivors performed exorcisms (which the survivors won), and one where the survivors had to kill their evil twins, which moved semi-randomly unless their good counterpart was killed (no traitor!)
"I'm gonna name it after Nancy!" "What, Pushover?" "Yes! Because that's what she does!"

Today I heard the new U2 single, Vertigo (see my LJ for a long rant about why Apple suck and how they just killed the Santa of the digital revolution for me, the tossers).

But, this record.

When I was young(er), much younger, I loved U2. I loved the intensity and energy of their first 4 albums. I couldn't get enough. I saw them live a bunch of times, and they always ruled. Our school rock band covered fucktonnes of their stuff. I can imitate Bono's voice to the nth degree, and playing like the Edge is a lot more about attitude, and a lot less about technique, than you'd think.

But then they lost their way; or at least, we went in different directions. I got distracted, they got into their new pop vibe thing.

2002's "All that you can't leave behind" was a pretty good record, a return to concept if not form. I liked it. Not that I disliked Zooropa, Pop etc; but they weren't on the same par as Achtung Baby, let alone The Joshua Tree, The Unforgettable Fire, War, October or Boy.

"Vertigo" is, and I say this unashamedly, the most exciting record I've heard all year. This might be the sound of 40 year olds rocking out, but it's an honest sound with genuine vibrancy, genuine expression, genuine fucking energy, goddammit. This is a great record, and it deserves to conquer the world. It won't, of course, but that's life. It reminds me of Boy, of October, of War, of live U2 in the 80s. It's full of life, it kicks and it spits and it's basically alive; but of course, always articulate.

Hello hello (Hola!).... marvellous. You'll all be rocking to this soon, or my name's not Robert Andrew Uttley.


Don't say I didn't warn you. I've just had my first musical epiphany in almost a year. Can't believe it came courtesy of U2!!

Achtung Baby was; and still is; one of my favourite albums. A return to form was due from them!
