God I have so many platonic lovers and I love them all
I love everyone
It’s one of those days
that sounds weird and creepy, but yeah whatever floats your boat.
You have such a dirty mind! It’s just so that I don’t have to walk all the way for a midnight snack.
I wasn’t talking about the hookers. The hookers are too cheap to deserve honey. They have a nice plastic bag waiting for them on the balcony.
I haven’t sent any postcards since I arrived here, but I’ve sure gifted kilograms of books at least.
Disabling facebook is like a break-up from an abusive relationship that you so desperately needed. Except, you know, you can do it any time and enjoy that amazing feeling of freedom and tons of free time.
Looking at dozens of financial metrics, it’s clear that privately held U.S. companies have a lot going for them right now. Almost every major metric is positive, […] But one metric is concerning – and it’s a big metric.
“Last year, sales growth averaged about 9 percent across all private companies; now it’s less than 4 percent, which is a dramatic decrease. “
OH NOES! Could it be that endless growth is not sustainable? Wow.
First two weeks of winter in Estonia:
Yay, finally, I love the sound of fresh snow crunching under my feet and the snowflakes and everything!!!111 <3 <3 <3
The other five months:
I got back from taking recycles out in sneakers and a sweatshirt, because I like walking on a snow in sneakers and a sweatshirt. I threw a snowball into M’s window and didn’t wait for a reaction and walked back. My mind wandered off to thinking how many people love me, and I didn’t need to count, and just smiled. I’m a rich man.
I also spend time poorly. I’d like to think it’s been a while since my last binge gaming stunt, but I’m not going to check my RescueTime for that. I managed to finish Bioshock: Infinite today mostly to see how has the storytelling in games has progressed.
And I’m not going to get into a deeper analysis, because, as far as games go, Bioshock is doing pretty well; but seriously, have we not yet moved past glorifying barbie-shaped women with tits out? Did the woman need to be ridiculously attractive, only so that I as a player could form an emotional bond with her? Am I supposed to just accept that because as a storytelling device, because games are a visual medium? Will ever this “oh look, a young sexy fragile girl, go and protect her” go out of style?
And we wonder why people are socially retarded, when we don’t give them the possibility of making hard decisions and facing the consequences. I mean, I appreciate that Bioshock wasn’t blunt about like “wow you’re a terrible person, you killed people, hope you feel like shit about it now”… but I feel like there’s more that could have been done besides a couple of rhetorical “Can our sins be erased?” and leaving it up to the whimsical few players to actually reflect on the story.
But I guess that’s the problem with the medium as a whole - it’s not conductive to reflection. It presents us all too often with a fake sense of choice. So the consequences are also meaningless. The emotional connection is missing because it’s hard to create. The moral of the story is missing because it would affect sales, and because storytelling is hard.
