Social Experiment

Rome Girl asked me to deal with all our change jars while she is gone. They bother her.

No worries. Between the 10, 20, 50 and one euro pieces I got more than 30 euros I could spend.

That said,  no cafe, tabac, restaurant or grocery store woluld take the 1 or 5 cent pieces.

They are now stuck in a jelly jar. There is probably about 15 bucks worth of change in these pieces

What I wonder is if  I get told to fuck off with them because I'm obviously middle class.

So, what I'm going to do is stick the  jar full of coins on the street with a sign reading "free!" and see if people bother with them or if even street people are like "fuck that - we can't spend it!"

Deep Thoughts

Whenever I see a news story about how Baby Boomers are depressed, all I can think is "Well, why wouldn't they be?"

Final Fantasy Lighting Returns

This week for the third time since Christmas I spent an extended period of time trying to get into this game. And, I want to get into it. The fighting system is great. The world is beautiful. I like these characters.

But... the fucking clock ruins the fucking thing. What is the point of creating a  beautiful world that begs to be explored if you have to constantly race the clock and never get any time at all to actually explore it|?  And, worse still, the clock means that if you happen to run into a boss before you are completely ready you are completely screwed because you'll lose so much time that by the time you get back to him or her you won't have time to deal with the other boss monsters.

I feel like this could be a great game, but the clock completely ruins it. I don't play Final Fantasy games because I want to do shit quickly. I play them because I like getting immersed in their worlds and being able to slowly figure things out.

Running an entire role playing game as a race to beat the clock is just dumb.

Money - It's A Drag

My friend Karl who used to do the bad music blog with me has an interesting perspective on the recent Kate Bush concerts.

He's also getting really shit on in the comments section of the article in comments that are, in fact, making his point for him.
