Still Alive

25 Αυγούστου, 2008 § 1 comment

Το παρακάτω τραγούδι είναι παρμένο από τους τίτλους τέλους του καταπληκτικού Portal της Valve. Στο τέλος του παιχνιδιού λοιπόν (spoiler alert) ο παίχτης καταστρέφει έναν υπολογιστή με τεχνητή νοημοσύνη και ένα voice synthesizer που κάνει synthesize μία αισθησιακή γυναικία φωνή. Σε κάποιον τα lyrics του εν λόγω τραγουδιού θύμησαν την πάλαι ποτέ κραταιά Amiga, έναν υπολογιστή με γυναικείο όνομα (amiga=φίλη) που μεσουρανούσε την δεκαετία του 80 και 90. Έφτιαξε λοιπόν το παρακάτω animation βάζοντας το τραγούδι στα χείλη της καλύτερής μας φίλης των παιδικών μας χρόνων. Απολαύστε το:

This was a triumph!
I’m making a note here:

It’s hard to overstate
my satisfaction.

Aperture Science:
We do what we must
because we can.

For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.

But there’s no sense crying
over every mistake.
You just keep on trying
till you run out of cake.
And the science gets done.
And you make a neat gun
for the people who are
still alive.

I’m not even angry…
I’m being so sincere right now-
Even though you broke my heart,
and killed me.

And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because
I was so happy for you!

Now, these points of data
make a beautiful line.
And we’re out of beta.
We’re releasing on time!
So I’m GLaD I got burned-
Think of all the things we learned-
for the people who are
still alive.

Go ahead and leave me…
I think I’d prefer to stay inside…
Maybe you’ll find someone else
to help you?
Maybe Black Mesa?
That was a joke! *HAHA- Fat Chance!*

Anyway this cake is great!
It’s so delicious and moist!

Look at me: still talking
when there’s science to do!
When I look out there,
it makes me GLaD I’m not you.

I’ve experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
On the people who are
still alive.
And believe me I am
still alive.
I’m doing science and I’m
still alive.
I feel fantastic and I’m
still alive.
While you’re dying I’ll be
still alive.
And when you’re dead I will be
still alive.

Still alive.

Still alive.

    Τρομερό και το παιχνίδι και το τραγουδάκι. Το portal παίζει άψογα σε linux με το wine ;-).
