What’s the closest thing you’ve experienced to real magic? I can’t think of a specific time/place that would answer this question. Honestly, I look for magic everywhere, because it just makes life interesting and awesome.
Who is the messiest person you know? And why? Eh, I try not to judge a person on the state of their home. My house at this point in time is pretty messy. I have known some people who are way worse than me — hoarders of the first degree. The kind you see on reality television who sleep on piles of clothing and share their nest with rodents. Yep I’ve known people like that. But! They are humans like myself and I don’t judge them. Because I’ve seen people who have sparkling clean homes who walk into my somewhat messy home and judge me harshly because I have coffee grounds on my counter tops. So yeah, to each their own.
If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask? I expect the absolute and total truth to every question I ask of anyone. If I don’t get it, that’s on the person answering the question, not me. Okay, I don’t honestly *expect* the absolute and total truth because the world works the way it does, but! I have enough hope in humanity to hope for the total and complete truth whenever I ask a question. If I don’t get it, as I said, that’s not on me. That’s one the person answering the question. I don’t go into a conversation expecting the person I’m conversing with to lie to me. As to what other people are asking. I know why our glorious leader was elected, so asking why and how is redundant. The answers are all around us, you just have to be willing to see them.
What benefits does art provide society? Does art hurt society in any way? I like art. I like a lot of art that many people do not consider art. For example, video games. There are many, MANY people who do not consider video game to be an art form. But I do. Take Skyrim for example. Look at some of the Photoshop screenshots that I’ve posted, those were drawn by people. Drawn… by people. That’s art. It’s a beautiful game. The soundtrack is amazing. That soundtrack was composed and performed by people. That’s art. There’s also an interesting story with side stories and those were written and implemented in the game by people. This video game — and many others are art. And art benefits society in many ways — it soothes the mind and takes the mind away from the harshness of the everyday world. Creating art allows the artist to express what’s in their soul. Some artists put that art out for other people to see and share, but some keep that art to themselves. As to whether art hurts society in any way, well… there’s huge debates about whether video games are a boon or determent to society, or even an art form. But I believe they are art, and for me, I like ’em. That, dear reader, is my personal opinion. Make of it what you will.
What’s something positive you’d like to share? Can be a smile, a joke, or music..anything that gave you a lift this week! So I’ve been kinda sick most of the week. This weekend I had my first full blown asthma attack in years. It was kinda scary because I don’t have a rescue inhaler on hand anymore because I haven’t had an attack in years. >_< So I haven’t had a lot of energy to do much of anything this past week. That being said, I mentioned a while back that I’ve been playing a game called Parkitect off and on these past few months. And whenever I play a new game I like to watch other people play it on YouTube, and for some reason, this games lends itself to people doing what are called “speed builds” where they build their parks in fast time, and that makes me smile. I think the one that made me smile the most was this guy because he kept saying, “I’m so new to this game.” and the stuff he built is ten times better than anything I’ve been able to cobble together. Anyway, enjoy:
