Two new missions for allies

This week is turning out to be pretty hard on me.  I think a significant portion of it is that I feel like I'm just waiting, putting my life on hold, while doctors figure out what they want to do with me.  It's hard living like that.  I feel like I can't make any plans, and that my life is out of my control, which is an enormous source of anxiety for me.  It doesn't help that Matt is out of town, so I'm kind of sitting here stewing in isolation.  Hence, the source of these next two challenges:

Mission One: All Along the Watchtower
Check in on me at least once before March 14 - either in person, by phone, email, text, Facebook message, gchat, or other means.  
Reward: 25XP, plus 5 additional XP per subsequent check-in

Mission Two: Reality is Broken - The Musical
I've long said that a major problem with reality is its substantial lack of background music.  Post a link to a song to add to the epic soundtrack of World of Healthcraft - and give me encouragement when fighting my Evils.  Remember: it must be EPIC! 

Allies with posting access: Please append your link with your name to the bottom of this post, as comments don't apparently allow for HTML embedding.
 Allies without posting access: Please post the link in the comments and we'll add it with your name to this post.
Reward: 25XP, plus 5 additional XP per subsequent song, and we'll make a killer playlist.

I would love for anyone who reads this blog to participate in this - sharing music is wonderful!

Here's my contribution: 

Jessica: ES Posthumus, Unstoppable

Matt: Dreamtheater, In the Presence of Enemies


  1. I WILL CHECK IN WITH YOU SO HARD YOU WILL HAVE TO DRIVE ME BACK TO FORT COLLINS. (BTW, the metaphysical fair is in Denver this weekend if you want to go.)

  2. hmmm k, epic, Dream Theater: In the Presence of Enemies: Parts 1 & 2

  3. I've posted sporadic song links for you on FB... a couple of which I feel fit the "soundtrack". Let me know if you want me re-post them here!

  4. It doesn't give me the option to edit this post to add my links but here is one.

  5. Loved "Unstoppable"!!! These are great soundtrack additions!!

  6. I can't seem to edit either, but here's my addition: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=co6WMzDOh1o

    It has special meaning to me since it's one of the main songs they play at the Breast Cancer 3-Day opening and closing ceremonies. I always feel a little more powerful when I hear it :)

  7. I don't know that I have a lot of epic music, because the music I like tends to be pretty/silly/generally ridiculous, but Jupiter from Holst's "The Planets" always makes me think of Jessica, and it makes me feel pretty epic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nz0b4STz1lo

  8. Some additions from my camp.

    ManoWar- Blood of my enemies

    ManoWar- Battle Hymn

    (Those are two of my favorites.)

    Rob Zombie-

    Album (not broadway) Defying Gravity

    Life's Gonna Suck
