Philip

In a conversation I had a couple days back, someone stated that if writers like Philip K Dick and Hunter S Thompson were of a current generation they would just be bloggers. Realising the accuracy of that statement mad me a little sad. Not totally sure why either. What’s wrong with blogging??

Art holds strange power over human beings, many of us dedicate ourselves to it. Seeing art forms emerge and die is part of life.

Although the title of this entry is complete bullshit, words are not dead (far from it). Times have indeed changed. Games as art is a current debate. I myself see games as art, of course they are. Combining visuals with music, even the user interface can be art.

Although GTA4 is what i’m mainly playing at the moment. I did play a game called ‘Polcarstva‘ today. Russian for “There is no half kingdom”, I believe. It’s a point and click flash adventure. Really beautiful looking, sounding, and the interface is really organic. Really cool free bite-size web game. Try it out.

Speaking of beautiful, jeez it’s hot outside. very nice day indeed.

Games so are art!

Where is my GTA4?

Where is my Xbox?

I don;t know if Hunter would have been a blogger though. He wrote for money. Adsense doesn’t pay the kind of expenses Rolling Stone does…
