New Eden (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

  • The ship shook violently,
  • nerve racking crews bounced,
  • captain wore his grim face,
  • “report,” as he shouted aloud.
  • “Captain, a fusion hiccup,”
  • without breaking a sweat,
  • a young lad reported,
  • to ease his captain’s worry.
  • A ship of a new era,
  • a captivated design,
  • a beta inception indeed,
  • an inception of a space age.
  • Many sweats and tears,
  • and a fortune was spent,
  • so men of a new era,
  • could explore a new frontier.
  • Before the new era,
  • fusion was elusive,
  • too hot to contain,
  • too exotic to be useful.
  • The new dawn had arrived,
  • fusion was realized,
  • in an unheard fashion,
  • pushing ships near light speed.
  • Earlier fusion tech had it,
  • ten percent of light speed,
  • new devices by trials,
  • pushing fusion near light speed.
  • Striving to make history,
  • fear not for their lives,
  • men climbed aboard,
  • a very first fusion ship.
  • Shooting for a historic moment,
  • the fusion ship shot away,
  • in glorious hooray,
  • the fusion ship vanished.
  • She sped so fast,
  • human eyes could not catch,
  • as she sped away,
  • hooray felt empty.
  • History was in the making,
  • one right after another,
  • our captain was sure,
  • another earth was in reach.
  • From the real earth men saw,
  • another earth from afar,
  • albeit they could only guess,
  • the compositions through instruments.
  • Our captain was sure,
  • men would reach a new Eden,
  • new Eden for this old race,
  • that had already worn out the old earth.
  • Thus our captain and his fusion ship,
  • hastily speeding toward this new earth,
  • for there be awaited a new Eden,
  • for there be a first man space colony.
  • Little had our captain knew,
  • space was stranger than fiction,
  • thus upon the arrival,
  • our captain was in shock.
  • The new earth was crowded,
  • with Adam and Eve everywhere,
  • too many to be counted,
  • the whole damn new earth was populated.
  • The truth was stranger than fiction,
  • our captain found himself,
  • and the crew too found themselves,
  • captain and the crew were in a parallel.
  • Imagination was to be shamed,
  • back on old earth our captain was lonely,
  • yet he found his copy with a wife,
  • happily married on this new Eden.
  • One among the crew,
  • found his unsavory self,
  • who got addicted to drugs,
  • and so broken on this new Eden.
  • Thus fiction was bested,
  • fusion to a parallel world,
  • one historic moment after another,
  • breaking out in full force.
  • To the new Eden we cheered,
  • to the new brothers we found,
  • dead or alive they were,
  • all were very parallel.
  • Thus it begged our captain to wonder,
  • could there be more parallels?
  • Perhaps, he could just wander,
  • in a fusion ship to more parallels.
  • Thus one new Eden wasn’t enough,
  • our captain was mad about parallel,
  • he demanded geeks to ponder,
  • where could he find another parallel?

They Had Spoken (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

  • Silence was so loud,
  • it deafened the livings,
  • driving their souls mad,
  • isolating the lonely fibers,
  • till the cores were shaken,
  • their foundation was weak,
  • but the heaven blessed them,
  • came the blessing of commune,
  • magical moment just happened,
  • soul to soul, reaching a communion,
  • soul to soul, communing their blessing,
  • out of the woodwork came the salvation,
  • stranger than the imagination, they thought,
  • gibberish utters had broken their innate silence,
  • mad driven words were chanting on dry lips,
  • the lips of the silence virgins were tainted,
  • erasing their knowledge of the silence,
  • silence was no longer that deafening,
  • yet, silence was their everything,
  • strangely, they had gone mad,
  • the breaking of a tradition,
  • gibberish whiplashed,
  • against the free wind,
  • silence was no more,
  • mad as they were,
  • they had spoken.

The Elder Scrolls Online Gameplay (Imperial Edition) Episode 15 – No Auction House, But We Got Guild Stores

Unlike most massive multiplayer online role playing games, The Elder Scrolls Online does not have an in-game global auction house, thus making it a bit more difficult for trading in-game items.  No sweat, because players can create and join guild stores.  Unfortunately, players can only join up to four guilds and create only one guild for themselves, thus the limitation is there for listing how many in-game items at once.  Anyhow, it’s a working solution to the problem of not having an in-game global auction house.  In the video right after the break, I talk briefly on this very problem.  Enjoy!!!
