Star Fox 64 3D



Finally beat Star Fox 64 3D and all I've got to show for it is this lousy photo. Took me a month+ to figure out how to beat the Andross brain; I'd never even made it to Venom as a kid. The solo piano over the end credits is classic and completely +Nintendo, love the final send-off pictured here​​​. +Dylan Cuthbert absolutely wonderful re-imagining, now I want to get the DS out and play Command again. Maybe next time I wake up at 4AM and can't sleep.

Star Fox



Started my Saturday morning with a random and completely gut-busting conversation about Star Fox with a 20-year old. All characters imitated, all bases covered. What a weird IP. I love that Slippy's cry for help can connect generations, and that the +Nintendo +The Jim Henson Company puppet skit has already become part of the legend. It's a beautiful thing.

Zuzu's



A few weeks back my wife and I stopped at +Billy Corgan's tea house late one Friday night. It's neat by day, but after 9 PM on a Friday or Saturday it has an atmosphere all its own, one that I can't quite describe. Nostalgic, lonely, mysterious, and warm, all rolled into one.
