I would be into all of the Mario games but would love even more to see the old NES Metroid!
In the new Spike Jonze film, Her, a man falls in love with his operating system. In some ways it’s a commentary on modern society and our increasingly intimate relationship to technology; it’s…
Normally I write cards to a select few, and I really enjoy it…or I used to.
It used to help me get into the spirit of the holidays.
This year, I really don’t give a shit.
It kind of bums me out that I feel this way.
“You. You are alive.
and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the sunlight that came through the shuffling leaves of the summer trees
and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the light that fell from the crisp night sky of winter, where a fleck of light in the corner of the player’s eye might be a star a million times as massive as the sun, boiling its planets to plasma in order to be visible for a moment to the player, walking home at the far side of the universe, suddenly smelling food, almost at the familiar door, about to dream again
and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the zeros and ones, through the electricity of the world, through the scrolling words on a screen at the end of a dream
and the universe said I love you
and the universe said you have played the game well
and the universe said everything you need is within you
and the universe said you are stronger than you know
and the universe said you are the daylight
and the universe said you are the night
and the universe said the darkness you fight is within you
and the universe said the light you seek is within you
and the universe said you are not alone
and the universe said you are not separate from every other thing
and the universe said you are the universe tasting itself, talking to itself, reading its own code
and the universe said I love you because you are love.
And the game was over and the player woke up from the dream. And the player began a new dream. And the player dreamed again, dreamed better. And the player was the universe. And the player was love.
You are the player.

My hotel is renovating all of our public space (lobby, restaurant, etc…) and function space.
Today, the jack-hammering started.

I wish he said FUCK less.
I think it’s unbecoming and does nothing for the show or his charater.
San Francisco startup Coin today announced its first product — a credit card-sized device that digitally stores up to eight credit, debit, gift, or membership cards, and lets you switch between…
I pre-ordered! I can’t wait to try this out.
Going to geek out for a sec, bear with me…
In Star Trek there’s the Prime Directive. In countless episodes/films/books captain’s avoid interacting with species/worlds that have yet to achieve successful space travel. This trailer made me wonder if there are other species out there who employ a similar doctrine and are avoiding us for this or another similar reason…
Makes you think!
Anyway, this kind of looks similar to October Sky. Yet, I am interested.
