I've been playing Bastion a lot over the past few days. The story and music are great (one song has been haunting me since I first heard it), and it's a lot of fun to try different weapon combinations and strategies. I don't usually go for this kind of game, but I definitely recommend it.

Also, if you are on Xbox live and haven't added me yet, my gamertag is nothingclever.

I'm just like you, only more so.
Introduction
I am a recovering academic.

"I am sick to death of cleverness. Everybody is clever now-a-days. You can’t go anywhere without meeting clever people. The thing has become an absolute public nuisance. I wish to goodness we had a few fools left."
–The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde

“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'” 
― Isaac Asimov

“You know it makes one feel rather good deciding not to be a bitch. It’s sort of what we have instead of God."
--Ernest Hemingway, _The Sun Also Rises_

"Be strong and cheerful and cast out those monstrous thoughts. Whenever the devil harasses you thus, seek the company of men, or drink more, or joke and talk nonsense, or do some other merry thing. Sometimes we must drink more, sport, recreate ourselves, aye, and even sin a little to spite the devil, so that we leave him no place for troubling our consciences with trifles. We are conquered if we try too conscientiously not to sin at all. So when the devil says to you, “Do not drink,” answer him, “I will drink, and right freely, just because you tell me not to.” One must always do what Satan forbids. What other cause do you think that I have for drinking so much strong drink, talking so freely and making merry so often, except that I wish to mock and harass the devil who is wont to mock and harass me. Would that I could contrive some great sin to spite the devil, that he might understand that I would not even then acknowledge it and that I was conscious of no sin whatever. We, whom the devil thus seeks to annoy, should remove the whole Decalogue from our hearts and minds."
--Martin Luther
