the visual space at eye level gives the impression that a city is made of signs and symbols words and images. lifting your eyes up and out of that band corrects that impression.

that is true. and sometimes you realise how ragged the stage set is.

Did you make an account somewhere called "Luke's Friend" just so you could send yourself messages?

Like trying to get out of P.E. by writing yourself a "parental" sick note and signing it "my mum".

it's getting wet and cold. there's no going back to summer and soon the clock will be turned back and it will be dark. a few hours of grey skies seen from your kitchen table cos you're not going anywhere. i haven't owned a gaming console since the original nintendo but this is the first time i'm considering getting a playstation. i figure it's better to numb myself down playing computer games instead of alcohol.

there's definite downsides but as you say its better and more sustainable that booze. winter, barring a miracle, will be very grim this year.

Play something with a nice world you can explore. Play Red Dead.

And @yyaldrin if you want to feel at least somewhat productive, just mute the game and listen to a lecture instead. Or a podcast. Any topic/field of interest, seeing as almost any topic/field has lectures on youtube for free. Learn by osmosis. I switch between actively listening to lectures, actually trying to grasp the topic at hand and keep the thread, and then passively listening while playing some game.

Don't do this. It's a trap. The podcast is evil.

Yeah I think Rogan does represent a sort of movement, sort of the like phase in which psychedelia is being digested into the relatively/moderately conservative base, rather than being primarily a far left thing.
