“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”—Charles Bukowski (via feellng)
quaddie has inspired me to start a YouTube black market at work where we exchange funny videos in exchange for pizza, since youtube is blocked. The funnier the video the better the toppings, but if it isn’t funny you get microwaved pizza! Then everyone will have to step their game up. I’m expecting to have a thriving underground economy by the end of the week
I miss the days where a new Final Fantasy announcement would fill my heart with a neverending stream of excitement, where for weeks after the announcement, or any new info, I would imagine myself adventuring through new and fantastic beautiful lands, getting attached to wonderful, complex…
Except that’s not a trailer. That’s a sneak peek. A preview. The game is still in development. We get little sense of how the game is going to be from that. It’s meant to showcase the Neato graphics and KH-style battle system, as well as the open world. Is it more steeped in our reality? No. Not really. Not more so than the other games. I think you’re making premature assumptions when we haven’t seen a whole lot yet.
I think a game whose slogan literally is “A fantasy based on reality” would be expected to, you know, deliver a higher level of realism?. Plus in the previous trailer there was the very real world-inspired city, and in this one they are driving a pretty regular looking car?
With this I’m not saying the game will be bad. What I’m saying is they have removed a lot of the wonder and awe of the fantasy worlds of old, so this has just become another game I’m just interested in, and nothing special.
I miss the days where a new Final Fantasy announcement would fill my heart with a neverending stream of excitement, where for weeks after the announcement, or any new info, I would imagine myself adventuring through new and fantastic beautiful lands, getting attached to wonderful, complex characters and the music! Music that would entwine itself with the heart and soul of the game and fill you to the brim with emotions with just the first couple of notes!
Final Fantasy used to be truly magical. Now….that magic has been muted to nothing but a faint whisper. As they push more and more into realism, it’s just become a stark reminder that I’ve grown up.
Last night, I had a dream where I was in a large, dark circular room where all the walls were covered by mirrors. In the mirrors, what was reflected was not me currently, but me at different points in my life. And one by one, a younger me would shroud the mirror he was in, and in his place a bad memory from when I was that age would play out. I had no choice but to sit there and relive all of my worst moments.
What the hell brain?! Why would you even dream something like that?! My brain is a scumbag
On the 4th floor of my office building, there exists a law office. This floor is by far the fanciest in our building, and its bathroom is no exception.
Upon entering this bathroom, you are greeted with a pleasant scent, not unlike that of spring flowers. The stalls, the sinks, the mirrors, everything is meticulously polished and cleaned with obvious care, and the result shows. Walking in this bathroom truly feels like an experience.
So every once in a while, I like to take a dump in this bathroom, just after lunch. Afterwards the world always feels just a little more balanced.
