#Minecraft  

A few minutes ago, while I was exploring the depths of a mine near my beautiful cabin by the lake, enraptured by the lava flow I saw a few chambers away, a Creeper snuck up behind me and blew me up.

I respawned, and in my efforts to recover my stuff, got knocked off a ledge and down into the black blackness of the cave by a spider. I died down there in the darkness, alone and longing for the spruce-planked safety of my bed.

When I respawned, I grabbed a sword and some torches, and went looking for my stuff a second time... but it was gone. Gone, all of it. I couldn't find it anywhere, and I died a third time when a slimer thing bounced into me and knocked me off a ledge again. This time, I died on impact, instead of wandering around in the darkness until a zombie killed me.

So I have my level-one health, my beautiful cabin by the lake, a mine that's deep and beautiful and filled with equal amounts of wonder and terror, and the strangest feeling of existential loss I've had in a video game since my dog got murdered in Fable.

I'm going to log off for a little while and get back into the real world, and when I go back to my awesome snowy little biome, I will carry only the exact tools I need whenever I leave the safety of my house for an extended time.

Live and learn, and remember that it's just a video game.

...right?

Some copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 had Mass Effect 2 on them.

BioWare is giving all affected people copies of the Mass Effect Trilogy

What do 100,000 stars look like? 

The new Chrome Experiment “100,000 Stars” tries to answer that by visualizing Earth’s immediate stellar neighborhood using WebGL, CSS3D, and Web Audio. Take a tour through the neighborhood, or zoom around on your own, and marvel at the vast scale & beauty of our galaxy. If you’d like to read more about this experiment, head over to the Chrome Blog: http://goo.gl/rno5O

Made a GIF from some Cowboy Bebop, Edward hacking like a boss. The captions are pretty much just my inner monologue while I observed it.
