I don’t know how it happens but weeks slip by quicker on this blog than they do in the outside world.
Nothing much earth-shattering to report. I’m quite enjoying Bad Piggies. More to think about than Angry Birds. Someone should gift this to Adrian Newey.

Also quite enjoying <a href=”http://ninjatune.net/artist/two-fingers”>Two Fingers'</a> album, Stunt Rhythms. Amon Tobin with some other dude, and mostly I’m liking it more than Tobin’s last two solo albums because it’s more reminiscent of the older, four on the floor style of his earlier albums.
Also, for decades I steered clear of anything audio-visually related to Joss Whedon because I’m just not into romantic-vampire tv-shows. But I came across a reference to the series Firefly, sci-fi in nature, so had a look while preparing to be disappointed. But actually it’s not too bad. The interesting thing is that the whole background universe structure was ripped from the table-top role playing game, Traveller.
I used to muck around with RPGs as a teenager and am now just having a look back at some of them. It’s pretty good fun and so unbelievably old-school compared to computer games. RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons were demonised by the old folks back then but I think if I had kids now I’d definitely be encouraging them to take up these games compared to whatever else is on the go in these modern times. Reading books, using a pencil and paper, (rolling dice), meeting up with a group of friends at someone’s house, listening to someone read descriptions and then using your brain in your head to _imagine_ those things, acting (without the walking around part). What’s not socially healthy about any of that?
