The last few days saw me at my nadir of intellectual and physical productivity; I did however, manage to salvage some very interesting issues to keep my mind from rusting. So, I shall just post this — so at least I accomplish something. So behold! These are what occupied my mind in January!
In no particular order, mind you.

01 – “Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth” is awesome
This is a replay.
I don’t do this to kill time, this is serious business. Valkyrie Profile is among the finest games ever released in the late ’90s to early ’00s; the Golden Age of JRPGs. Comparatively, if we observe its peers, the title is God damn highbrow.
Any of you played or beat this game? It was quite a must-play for the early 2000s PlayStation generation…
02 – I put pr0n under scrutiny
WordPress forbids an explanation further than this. Consult me should the need arise (e.g. curiosity).
03 – Brian Eno is awesome
Have you listened to Music for Airports? Do not die before you do.
04 – Seeing the Arts getting massacred is amusing
It is fun in a twisted way to witness the broad enterprise of the Arts getting butchered mercilessly by Science itself. That stoic, robotic, dangerous-to-our-anthropomorphic-well-being motherfucker! To think that the whole achievements and study of aesthetics are but a bloated, self-celebrating collective subjectivity preached in a vacuous mass masturbation is, while depressing, very thrilling. 😀 If there’s anything postmodernism got right, it will be this.
Somewhere a Shakespeare fan is crying and sobbing existentially. Boo hoo.
05 – That cell phone vendor is a sun of a beach
In short, I have this cell phone I bought for RM 850 in October and I have problems operating it. I plan to have a trade it for something else and this bloke said he’ll buy it for RM 200.
Though to be fair, Samsung’s price does drop easily.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to play some games (see point 1) while getting depressed at how kitsch it actually is (point 4).
