But I recently downloaded all the N64 roms. WCW/nWo Revenge STILL doesn't work because there's been no serious updates to this emulator since about 2005. But I managed to download a plugin that makes the game work. WCW vs nWo World Tour has the same problem and that works now too but that's an inferior game to Revenge.
I was so jazzed that I did another Chris Benoit video. He's in this thing.
Also in the game is Brian Adams who died less than two months after Benoit. Dude, this is too perfect. So I fired up Fraps and took a video. Almost exactly 10 minutes. If this was Youtube 2002, I would have been one second over the upload maximum. But in these times of plenty, you can upload videos as long as you want.
The file was 3.5 gigs. That's a lot. But this is awesome. Chris Benoit vs Brian Adams in this game that I wanted to play 15 years ago. Plus, there's a Halloween Havoc stage so there's the holiday tie in. So I let it upload overnight.
It was all worth it. A competative match. By the way, Brian Adams is better known as Crush. He was the third member of Demolition for a while. I didn't like that angle. How can you have three members in a tag team? I think one of the main guys was sick or injured so couldn't always do the shows. They were trying to bring Crush in as a permanent replacement. Didn't really work out.
Then he was in a pretty long feud with the late Matt Bourne as Doink the Clown. Watching the videos now, in the early days he was just called "Doink" with no modifier. Pretty weird angle. Why would Crush, who by this time was a laid back surfer (in real life, Brian Adams is from Hawaii) have a beef with an evil clown?
Anyway, it's a pretty good match. Not so good finish, but that's typical from these games. Even Fire Pro, it's almost never a big move that finishes the match. You can check it out here.
While this was uploading, I had another dream about me not finishing high school. I wonder if this is a common dream to have. There were several parts to it where I was meeting former classmates and I couldn't recognise them. I think one had become a transgender but still looked like a guy, which is typical. Just a guy in a dress.
But the part at the end was they were still in school but I had stopped at the normal age. It's like there was a mistake. I wasn't supposed to stop. But I was trying to work out how many years ago I graduated. I thought it was only about two years ago but then I thought, "No, that can't be right. This was over ten years ago." In reality, it was 20 years ago.
And there's this former classmate still there. And I'm talking to him. Can't remember what about. There's a part where I'm bringing back a bunch of stuff of mine to the school. Some of the stuff is pornographic magazines. A lot of sandwiches too. Then I notice that the stuff goes missing and I'm sad about that but there's nothing you can really do because it's all a hazy dreamscape.
This dream always makes me realise what a waste of time school was. So what if I didn't graduate high school? It's never served me during my entire working life. Nobody ever asked to see the diploma.
Even university. A couple of places have asked to see the degree. But...these weren't high paying jobs. And I can just print a degree out. And in any event, in my current job, it's a total irrelevence. Nobody cares how much schooling you completed. You just have to be able to work the machine. Even that's optional, to be honest.
What a waste. But looking at Facebook, I realise how high school was important for making friends. At the time I thought, "I have my whole life to make friends. I don't need to hang out with these losers." But no, you look at these people's friends lists and it's all people who they went to high school with. They're not befriending co-workers or neighbours or people from the stamp collecting club or whatever. Just people they knew in high school.
I suppose it's true. How many co-workers am I interested in tracking down? Not many. I can't even remember their names anyway. It's high school that you think about. Not really grade school. Can barely remember much from then. Not university. It was too big, rarely had two classes with the same person.
Anyway, I have work to do. I may finally finish this transcript this weekend. And if I do, I'll finally be free after probably three months of non-stop transcripts.
