Each Chapter’s End
Context is everything. The same photographs and paintings of airport terminals and train compartments and subway platforms that seem so cold and forbidding in contemplation of one’s traveling out into the world, somehow become reassuring in their hard functionality and durability – when thought of as the pathway to the journey back home. Faces of travelers photographed in airports often exhibit muted “Mona Lisa smiles,” masking the direction (to or away from home) that they are headed.

The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”

“What do we die for, if not family, friends and freedom? We have fled from a crude reality, yet fate and war chase us, shake us like winter winds bully a wooden house.

“The very meaninglessness of life forces man to create his own meaning. Children, of course, begin life with an untarnished sense of wonder, a capacity to experience total joy at something as simple as the greenness of a leaf; but as they grow older, the awareness of death and decay begins to impinge on their consciousness and subtly erode their joie de vivre, their idealism—and their assumption of immortality. As a child matures, he sees death and pain everywhere about him, and begins to lose faith in the ultimate goodness of man. But, if he’s reasonably strong—and lucky—he can emerge from this twilight of the soul into a rebirth of life’s elan. Both because of and in spite of h

What do you think your favorite city will look like in one hundred years?
Architect Rem Koolhaas has completed a “vertical city” complex in Rotterdam, bringing a new style of multi–purpose skyscrapers to the city skyline. Bennett Stein wrote about the new buildings for KCRW’s Design & Architecture blog, calling the creator “the Godzilla of architecture.”
Here’s an excerpt from Stein’s essay:

Once upon a time that meant something.
That meant that while some people looked at me strange, others looked at me with respect. Because I belonged to a group of people who care, who are kind, who do what they can to help the world, or even their small little community.
Now I have to sit down with them and explain.
"No, we're not all like that."
"I don't honestly understand why they act like little brats."
"I'm not that weird, I just like the show."
"Yes... yes, sometimes I am ashamed..."
Because have you seen what we've turned into? A group of little brats who do nothing but whine when they don't get their way! Who yell at the writers for doing things they don't automatically approve of, even though they've made it this far into the series and still have the group going strong!
We get pissed, and annoyed, and act like what we say matters when we complain.
Our actions used to be what mattered, our hearts used to be what mattered.

-You will be required to create a new OC, who lives in one of the four realms below and interacts with the characters named.
-You will have to write a single paragraph description of your character. This description can be longer if you so choose.
-This contest is to create a NEW OC, not one you already have edited.

-Please re-post this journal or a link to it
-Originality: The more original your character, the higher your chances will be.
-Effort: Please do not put just five minutes into this. Even if you are not a skilled artist, you effort can be seen through your final product. Please at least try.

Long tweet from Gerard about the end of the bandGerard just posted a very long tweet: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1rjdh4fLong tweet from Gerard about the end of the band in Personal More Like This
The explanation is kind of of vague, but he makes two things clear: the band didn't end due to scandal or argument, and MCR is indeed done. So whether the fan theories about legal issues are true or not, the break-up is permanent, and it wasn't quite as abrupt as it seemed.
As incredibly disappointing as this is, I'm glad he said this early on so we can stop pondering over theories and start to move on with our lives. While I thought the theories were interesting, I worried that they brought false hope and dragged this on longer than necessary. Now we finally have to put MCR to rest.
But even though MCR is over, the guys' stories certainly aren't. I just hope they find happiness in whatever they do.

Avoid UbisoftA while back, just after I had completed whichever iteration of Assassin’s Creed involved the pirate guy, I said that Watchdogs was probably going to be a crap game. A number of people said I was wrong to badmouth a game without playing it, but my argument was that you could gauge the quality of an upcoming title by the studio/publisher’s previous output. With that in mind, it’s fairly obvious that Ubisoft’s preferred method is to dazzle the weaker minded with pretty, pretty graphics in order to sell as many copies as possible before someone points out that the game actually plays like a dog (which – what ho - is exactly what Watchdogs did).Avoid Ubisoft in Personal More Like This
