Thoughts before bed.: OH MY GOD. I JUST WITNESSED THE SINGLE GREATEST MOMENT IN HUMAN HISTORY. →

likethebookshop:

On a bus, heading home from the city I am greeted by an incredibly nice Russian-sounding bus driver with a smile on his face. About 4 stops later (in the valley, of course) a bogan hops on with his skanky (I assume) girlfriend. (May have been sister. May have been both.) Naturally, he does not…

Dear HONY,My name is Riley and I’m from Honolulu. Me and my girlfriend went to the same high school, but I go to school in Chicago and she goes to school in New York. We’ve been together 5 months total, but we’ve only spent 2 weeks together in person. It sucks horribly.As if this wasn’t difficult enough, she’s interning in NYC. I’m spending most of my money to come up to NYC to visit her for a few days, it’s going to be the only time I get to see her until the winter. The problem is that she’s staying in an all women’s dorm and I didn’t have enough money to book a hotel for the entire time I’m in New York… So we’re going to try sneak me into her dorm in a suitcase. Nobody believes that I can/will actually do this so I’d love it if you could take a picture of the attempt, at least to prove that it actually happened.-RileyI can confirm the mission was successful, though the security guard did seem a little perplexed that a small girl was dragging a 150 lb suitcase through the lobby, six inches at a time.

_,.-‘♥’-.,__,.-‘♥’-.,__,.-‘♥’-.,__,.-‘♥’-.,__,.-‘♥’-.,__,.-‘♥’-.,__,.-‘♥’-.,__,.-‘♥’-.,__,.-‘♥’-.,__,.-‘♥’-.,_
I don’t know about you guys, but as a VGM fiend I freaked when the first Game Music Bundle featuring a bunch of my favorite indie game music composers was revealed. 10+ (and I do emphasize the “plus” here) albums featuring amazing composers like BigGiantCircles, Jake “Virt” Kaufman and more for pay-what-you-want. It was a project made with utmost love and asking little in return.
Well now it’s BACK with the Game Music Bundle 2! This time with a new batch of indie composers like Disasterpeace, Francisco Cerda, Jim Guthrie and more giving us some fantastic music to blow our minds. Want to feel like you’re swimming through the deepest oceans? Or flying through the vastness of space while dancing to a nice bassy beat? Once again the Game Music Bundle 2 has got you covered just like the first. It’s even got Rap. Over an 8-bit beat. Yeah, you read that right. Don’t believe me? Then you need to click that link above, pay a little somethin’-somethin’ and show your love! I guarantee there’s something for everyone. Speaking of which, it’s Valentine’s Day as I write this. There is an option for you to grab a bundle for yourself and a loved one… ^_~
Oh! And if by some crazy chance you didn’t get your hands on the first Game Music Bundle, you can grab its “big ten” albums for $5 or more. C’mon. You can’t deny that lovely bit of awesomeness.
Enough jibba-jabba! What’re you waiting for? Head on over to GAMEMUSICBUNDLE.com right now! Click each album and hear a preview as well as links to the artists’s websites. Most of all, enjoy! VGM4LIFE♥

quote By the second level of Lego Pirates, I was running around Tortuga with a swashbuckling woman, a midget with a blunderbuss, and a drunken blacksmith. Jack Sparrow was riding a pig, and I, as Will Turner, was running about slapping everyone I could find with a large fish. I do not think there is an upper limit to how much I could do this.

Checkpoints for the next level in life by Joe Alterio. His thoughts behind these works:

The role of loneliness in a public space grows in proportion to the intended scope of the space to serve the public, namely, a separation created by the manifestation of the rubric of “public space” - large cold monuments, open forums with nowhere to hide, grandiose pretensions that minimize the individual. Public spaces beget private yearnings.
We are also made more alone by our shared digital space. The conundrum of free public wi-fi, for example, serves to create digital walls which we can’t breach with normal every day interactions. Everyone is now in their own digital space of their own making. Our space perception is more and more confused with our digital perception of space; is the train station a level to beat? Is that bus to catch a challenge that will reward a player with points? Don’t I recognize this building from that video game?
