Why is it that whenever I hear the instrumental backup for “Nightswimming” by R.E.M I tend to almost cry, a happy cry?

You, I thought I knew you
You, I cannot judge
You, I thought you knew me

And I guess a lot of people were excited when HL2’s source was leaked. It’s just, sigh, it’s caused a long delay in release. And I can’t wait. I mean, look at it.

Half Life 2 Shot

Just concept art, but still. Drool.

And what Gabe, one of the developers had to say Important: Just to be clear, it’s ok to talk about the leak and the possible implications, however we’ll nuke you and your family if you even make the most slight clever hint of where to download it or even screenshots of it.”

    And I love to know what you have to say, so it doesn’t really matter where you say it.

    That song, that’s the only portion of the lyrics I “can get”. I almost love it for just the… music. But yes, sigh @ that line.

    Focus and desire to use my time constructively => finishing faster? I mean, if that’s what it takes to look at it positively, that’s what it will have to be :).
