The following blog entry / vlog entry is actually targeted at one person specifically. And his name is Dave (or Dave2). He blogs at Blogography.com — which is quite wonderful. You can even buy shirts and hats and playing cards with pictures of a bad monkey on them. It’s really a wonderful blog. And unlike mine, his targets a general audience and doesn’t get all exclusive and snobby and earmark one specific individual.
Here’s the background: Dave is an avid fan of the Hard Rock Cafe franchise. He’s visited almost every Hard Rock on all seven continents of this planet, as well as the one they’ve built on the International Space Station. When I mentioned on my blog, in passing, that I was enjoying a video game which happened to have a Hard Rock Cafe present in it, his interest was piqued. The game is Crazy Taxi 3: High Roller, and there is a world in it called “Small Apple” which emulates New York City. And about a block away from its equivalent of Times Square is a Hard Rock Cafe. The following video is just me playing part of the game, lingering by the Hard Rock Cafe so that Dave can get a good view of it from all angles. I then provide an extra bonus — a 3-minute stint of me driving around the streets of “Small Apple” jumping over stuff and crashing into garbage trucks. And I include a running commentary throughout the whole thing.
If you’re Dave, this is possibly worth watching. If you’re not Dave — well, I’m surprised you’ve read this far. Watch if you’d like. Dance along to the snazzy soundtrack if that’s your thing. Or skip it. Totally up to you…
Tomorrow’s post will be for everyone. I promise.
