What I admire most about this construction (which is indeed an authentic bit of word association, fired off in about 2-3 seconds completely off the top of my brother's head) is the diversity of cognitive connections. Much of the linkages are semantic in nature, but there is the fascinating split homophone (for lack of a better term) in the middle, and then the brain stuttering in the middle of the last three words.

Yeah, I wrote this thing.
It's fine, I guess.

Nick and I had what I think is a very good discussion of GTA V several weeks ago, largely concerning the implications of its conclusion.
Perhaps rightly, perhaps wrongly, I still feel like the apologist for GTA V among the game critic intelligentsia. No one I feel has given it a fair shake or (more importantly and more damningly from my perspective) a full playthrough, and it is so smart, so funny, and so well designed.

St. Patrick's Day, I get. If you're Irish, a day that reminds you that you should be drunk seems reasonable to me.
Thanksgiving? I am one ungrateful son of a bitch. A day reminding me to crawl out of that wretchedness is, again, a reasonably useful one.
But a day that reminds you to love the one you love? Troubling.
The only thing that I do like about the day is the phrase, "Be Mine." It sounds vaguely sinister and threatening. It also sounds like a rather true and authentic description of love.
Allow me to possess you.

Talking to myself
Swearing in unique and innovative ways
Swearing in the most obvious ways possible
Playing video games
Petting a pup until her leg thumps
Petting my wife until her leg thumps
Smoking some more

I probably should have written this while the game was a bit fresher in my mind. It probably would have been a bit more specific.
Be more specific. Be more specific. Be more specific.

A podcast on Knock-Knock. It's hide-and-seek on PC, oh, with a little surrealism mixed in for good measure. Should immediately evoke memories of childhood for most of us.
