Someone to kiss, someone to kick you

(Which by the way are not actually the correct lyrics. Still I prefer my initial misunderstanding of them.).

Zaevion Dobson was a good man.

If you asked me to find a smart man, a clever man, a capable man, a handsome man, a powerful man, or a strong man, I could find you examples of all of those in droves.

But a good man, a good man is hard to find.

In the end, very few people can say that their lives amounted to much of anything, even smart men, powerful men, clever men. Dobson's life actually amounted to something. Three lives go on because he cared about other people more than himself.

Zaevion Dobson was a good man.

Guitar Hero Live: Wait and See Before Reforming the Band

Probably my last article for the year. I probably should have gone out with a bigger bang, as this is simply a pretty straightforward review.

At last, the end of nudity

So, apparently the final issue of Playboy that will feature nudes was released last week.

We've been nude here in America since 1953, but next month it's all over for us. No more, never again.

Beginning next month, no matter how hard you try to get naked, you will always find yourself in underwear, like those Barbie dolls soldered permanently into their own underpants.

Cradle Questions the Dichotomy Between Religion and Science

This is a really nice little game. The ideas being interrogated here, the nature of the soul and parallels between transhumanism and reincarnation, are intriguing. I also kind of really like the mini-game within the game, a series of block puzzles, which I hear other people are less than fond of. They aren't easy and require some familiarizing yourself with their core ideas--in other words, they take practice. I enjoyed them despite having to hammer away at them a bit.

The only real drawback for me is a bug I kept running into that would cause the game to occasionally no longer recognize my keyboard, requiring a system shutdown to clear up. More than a little aggravating. Still though, there are some really cool ideas here, and the game is very unique and pretty looking.

Exhibitionism and the Video Game Confessional: Nina Freeman's Cibele

There is a real authenticity to the presentation of adolescence in Cibele. But there is still something off about the execution of the game on the whole. I try to articulate why here:

Absurd. Marvelous.

Hang with it. It only gets worse. Thus, it only gets better.
