Wright Thompson, “Michael Jordan Has Not Left the Building” – just amazing: another reminder to keep working on my writing. Yes, Jordan dissects LeBron’s game. But the larger themes of getting to the top with rage, competing over everything imaginable to push yourself, watching your bid for immortality slip away simply because you’re alive – well, let’s just say someone put America into a feature article.
Your Imaginary Girlfriend: Taylor Swift – the less said about this, the better. I will say that I am jealous of people who can write fanfiction. There’s an understanding of how popular culture affects us at play I wish I had.
Thoughts on: Actual Sunlight (h/t Ricky McAlister) – I’ll never play this game. But it seems to me to be very interesting what people are doing with gaming.
