I hate making Christmas lists as an adult because the only thing I want to put is “straight up $$$ to allow me to pay down my overwhelming student loan debt.”
Seriously. Take whatever you were planning on buying me, and give me the cash instead!
Fox News headlines v. real headlines, part 2425183.
The brunette part is really important.
Fun fact, our hair color reveals our place in pansexual society. Blondes are our record keepers. The great librarians, they collect, analyze, store, and distribute information to the rest of us. They are blonde because they reflect the light of knowledge. Those with Black Hair are our inventors. They investigate, produce, and teach new technologies so that we may thrive in future times. Their hair is black because of their frequent dives into the void of the unknown. Burnettes are our ambassadors. They interact with people, plants, and animals, forging bonds that can protect us when we are threatened. Their hair is brown because of their deep connection to the earth.
And as for redheads.
You don’t want to know the purpose of the Red Heads. But may their hellfire consume our enemies.
And now the weather
people laugh at the idea that broadband internet access is being pushed as a basic human right along with access to food, shelter, health care, etc. but it makes total sense when a society is structured so that people who can afford it are privileged above people…
We can not simultaneously tell people to get a job, get a better job, clip coupons and find sales, cook better food, manage their finances, go back to school, train for a job that’ll be in demand when they finish, while also telling them that access to information on all those things is a luxury reserved for the rich.
I forgot there are video trailers still online of games I have worked on. I was pretty proud of this one.
Working on this game is actually how I met Harold!
And that is the story of how majoring in classics got me a career in games and a wonderful fiancé.
Play 8-Bit Elizabeth Bennett in New Endless Runner ‘Stride and Prejudice’
Play as an adorably pixelated Elizabeth Bennett as you run across the text of Pride and Prejudice in this endless runner for iOs.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that adding Jane Austen to anything makes it better, and the usually-edu game developers at No Crusts Interactive must agree. In their new release Stride and Prejudice, the full text of Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice forms the platforms and challenges for an endless runner.
No need to get your petticoats six inches deep in mud, just tap to hop and then let Lizzie run along the text. Set the speed for a challenging game, or slow it down to read the book while playing. And of course, you can bookmark your game to pick up right where you left off next time.
What an educational, simple, and fun-looking game! Can anyone else see a future benefitting schools?
I know! I thought the completion percentage really encouraged finishing the novel (not that I need encouragement to read P&P) too.
