I posted this in the forums but I'll throw it up here too.

In the early origin games if you watched the credits clean through a developer quotes option popped up. I really loved that. Sure some quotes were completely out of context and went over my 10 year old head. However most of them were hilarious, referencing particularly funny bugs or just some of the catch phrase mantras of the programmers. Ever since I found the first one I watch every game's credits clean through in the hopes that I discover something.

Keep up the great work, here's to waiting for a playable alpha!

This article sums up my feelings exactly. +NBC should really take a look at what people want to see, instead of assuming they know best.

If you have a full-time job, no privacy at work, and/or a boss who cares about productivity, you probably didn't spend two hours in the middle of the day, like I did, watching the women's all-around O...

Brilliant thoughts on life... Thank you Ariana for taking the time to procrastinate AND enlighten us all.
 
I'm going to tell you a secret. I'm going to tell you how to live forever.

Maybe.

I mean, your guess is probably close to as good as mine.

So here's the thing: if you picture life as a timer -- you know, the sort with sands slipping from the top to the bottom, and once it runs out that's it, game over -- then you have to figure that one grain of that sand is the very last moment of your life, right? So the trick, then, is to make sure that very last grain of sand never hits the bottom. And I think people go about that sort of thing all wrong.

Because people tend to try and clog the timer from the top.

I mean, think about it: each grain of sand is a moment in your life, right? And some moments are bigger than others, obviously. Sometimes you don't even know how big a moment is until it's sitting in the bottom of the timer and is fairly dwarfing all the other moments that fell before and after it. Sometimes moments stick to other moments to make an even bigger, lumpier moment. And I'm pretty sure it's possible to fill the bottom of the timer with so many MASSIVE moments that, eventually, no more sand can pour through from the top, because there'd be nowhere for it to go.

(I don't think that's a good plan, mind you -- I didn't promise to tell you how to live forever right.)

But, leaving aside for a moment a botched eternity, I suppose it would be good to focus for a moment on the wrong way to try living forever, because it's also an unfortunate way to live, full stop.

See, unfinished business doesn't keep you alive forever. No matter what the ghost stories tell you. Nevertheless, people go about every single day blowing up the moments in the top half of their life timer in the hopes that they'll clog the funnel until they can get to them. I suppose the idea is that if there's a hundred Really Big Moments coming along someday, then all the rest of the little moments won't be able to squeeze past them and fall to the bottom of the timer. So then there'll be plenty of time to chip away at those massive upcoming moments, and do everything you want to do before you die.

But that last moment of your life (timer) is the teensiest, tiniest, slipperiest grain of sand you can imagine. It can slide through the barest amount of space, even the hair's breadth between That Big Upcoming moment and the side of the glass. There's no stopping it from falling, no matter how many upcoming Big Moments you try to put in its way.

And when it falls, that's it, game over. And silly you with a pile of never-done Big Moments sitting in the to-do top of your timer, and no more time to do them.

And all of this is really to say I have been procrastinating all day long with nothing to show for it. But now I've spun my day into a cautionary tale with a frankly ridiculous metaphor, and I've stolen a few of your smaller moments, too, so that's something.

Creativity is one of the fundamental cores of innovation, change and problem solving.

Can't believe I met Marc Maron! Even though they spelled the headliners name wrong on the marque, it was a great night.
