    • There’s a new game that looks awesome, haven’t written a post about it.  Instead I what I wrote a post about was something the game made me think of.  In a setting where the characters have extremely visible, non-ambiguous, universal sexual dichotomy, one could really explore the complexity of gender.  Take away the ability to “pass” as part of the cis-gender-binary and most of the issues come straight to the surface.  Plus, the entire concept of “passing” is horrible bullshit forced on people by a culture that refuses to accept them, so eliminating it means either showing a culture that does accept non cis-gender-binary people (how things should be) or showing the shit people have to put up with when they can’t pass and have to fear when they do (because passing doesn’t mean passing all the time.)  It was a long post.
    • I wrote click-bait titles for religious concepts and asked people to share their own in the comments.
    • I’ve had an idea for a setting for a long time where it takes place in generic small town America except the residents of the town include God, Jesus, the Devil, Buddha, various other divinities (Hel, daughter of Loki, shows up, for example), and so forth.  I wrote about the idea for the setting and also snippets of how human residents could exploit the setting.
    • Earth to Echo has within it a very fun movie, and when all is said and done I enjoyed it as that fun movie, but it could have been so much better if the protagonist weren’t an utter jerk.  Also if they hadn’t done tokenism so heavily.  The three (well, four, but one’s a robot that only ever beeps) other main characters carry the film.
    • Finally, I saw my sister’s kid for the first time in a long time.  He’s a little over two years old.  He can speak English now, but I can’t yet understand him most of the time.  He’s got a thick baby-accent.
