It's Wednesday. It's the afternoon in the summer. So what do to do? Stay inside and play video games of course! Or even better/equal to that, surfing the interwebs for videos.
Check out this pretty sweet music video by the Guild. For any girl who was play an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role play game), I'm sure you've experienced this at least once, (even if you pick a male avatar!) I know I have. Oh the joys of pixels!
