Just thinking…

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Wednesday, May 4, 2005 at 9:43 pm by flerly.

In the year 2005:

Marilyn Manson turned 36.
Andrew Wood would be 39.
Kurt Cobain would be 38.
Trent Reznor will be 40.
Chris Cornell will be 41.
Layne Staley would be 38.
Freddie Mercury would be 59.
Scott Weiland (who shares my birthday) will be 38.
John Lennon would be 65.
Eddie Vedder will be 41.

The albums Core, Ten, Mother Love Bone and Dirt will have been out for 13 years. Temple of the Dog, Nevermind and Badmotorfinger will have been out for 14 years. Facelift and Apple will have been out for 15 years. Pretty Hate Machine will have been out for 16 years.

Of course, Andrew Wood only faked his death, to begin his life as a satyr…. or so I speculated back in 1995, when I made him as a Changeling character. =\ Also in the year 2005, it’s been more than 7 years since I was a regular roleplaying geek.

    *gasp* You were a role-playing geek?! You played Changeling? I never would have guessed it. :O <-- Note my surprised face. It's been a while since I rp'd, too. Never tried Changeling, but I did enjoy Vampire: The Masquerade, World of Darkness, and good ol' cyberpunk. All on IRC, though. Hmm, we might bring the cyberpunk game back soon. g33x0rz!

    Those were my college years. Instead of drinking and partying, we were fueling up on Mountain Dew and staying up all night to role-play… for years. Call of Cthulhu, Shadowrun, Earthdawn, Vampire, Werewolf, Changeling, Wraith, Star Wars and Chill. I still have all the Chill stuff, since that was actually my favorite. Since I’ve moved to the ATL, I’ve bought the Toon books and the Hunter sourcebook, but just haven’t had the spark to run anything…. or the interested parties. Those were insane, social and creative years. Nowadays people only deem to gather for online games. No imagination required. Sad.

    Someday, to commemorate my fondness for those days I’m going to finally get that compass that was the sign of the Eshu for a tattoo (instead of just use it for my icon).

    Wasn’t Andrew Wood dating Courtney Love when he OD’d (or shortly before)? Coincidence?

    He was engaged to some chick when he OD’d, because she’s the one who found the body, but it wasn’t Courtney. Possibly in the past they date, I mean.. that whole scene was so small and interconnected, many of them knew each other for years pre-discovery and they surely played all the same little venues together for a while, too.

    I miss changeling. Definitely my favourite of the WoD games. I made Calin and Hobbes as a childling redcap and his 5-point Chimera buddy. that was fun to play with. ;}
