// Hello, welcome to main/menu, a weekly newsletter about video games. Every Friday, Fanbyte Social Editor+ Nicholas Grayson will hand deliver a bunch of words about the intersection between games and culture to your inbox. If you have questions or comments, you can hit me at niki@fanbyte.com.
Okay, time to do the newsletter! //

Start Up
Hi! Long time no see! My schedule has been hellish the last few weeks as I have been running through the internship process! We’ve had a bunch of great candidates and it has been great to chat with folks over the last week.
The kids are alright, folks.
After next week I’ll have some more time back and these will return to your inbox at a normal clip. Let’s hop into the rest of the newsletter!
The Discourse
You know Chug Jug With You? The most important song of the year so far?
number one victory royale yeah fortnite we bout to get down

I love it. It is in a long line of incredible video game parody tracks.
I’m sorry? You don’t know about this history? The entirety of the 2010s was defined by video game parody songs of popular pop music. Remember Bruno Mars’ “Grenade”? What if it was about connection issues in Call of Duty: Black Ops (2010)?
TOMAHAWK TO THE FACE FOR YAAAAAAAAA
TOMAHAWK TO THE FACE FOR YAAAAAAAAA
Incredible, right?

Okay, can I interest you in a version of “Gangnam Style” about Minecraft?
dig, dig, dig, dig
dig, dig, dig, dig

creeper? aw man.

this dog is a musician and they should win a grammy (but fuck the grammys, tho).
The Closer
I’m getting the vaccy on Sunday baybeeeeeeeee. I hope you are also able to get the vaccine soon! NPR has a good tool that can help you figure out how to get the shot. Many people think they are not eligible yet but you would be surprised! Here in California, if you have a co-morbidity (i.e. something that would make it hard for you to survive COVID if you got it, like asthma or diabetes) you can get the shot regardless of how old you are. We’re almost at the end, y'all.
Have a good one.
Did you enjoy this issue?
