    I had a busy morning at work and I had a task scheduled after lunch of which I thought it would take all afternoon. That kind of sucks, but on the other hand it does mean my afternoon will go by faster. I finished the task in 20 minutes and now I'm bored and staring at the clock, waiting for it to hit 5pm so I can go home....Damn my efficient working skills...

    I wonder if this is wilful deception or if some people thing the lead IS the song. I've definitely met guitarists who think they are the most important part and the melody is the be-all and end-all.

    When I play over a backing track, I always end it with "post your version of this backing track. You can get it at: xxxxx" It eliminates any confusion.

    I've been looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077 for years now but today I found out it's a first person perspective game. I can't play FPP games, they give me motion sickness. Gutted.

    Are you sure that it happens with all FP games? I play FPS regularly, but there are some games that give me motion sickness. It’s usually the poorly programmed ones that don’t react as quickly as your movements, thus triggering motion sickness in less than a minute.

    My wife and I are both also affected by the FP motion. Can't play any of them for long, don't even bother with them anymore. Harder to come by good and fun third-person games. Mostly just stick with Uncharted and the GTA series. I've enjoyed most of the Assassin's Creed games, but they got repetitive and boring.
    I need to get back and finish Deadpool, though. :D

    I can't play FPS games either. I've tried so many and they all make me sick eventually.

    I really enjoyed Watchdogs 2 and the last Tomb Raider game. I loved the Uncharted series, I never had a PS3 so I played all 4 of the Nathan Drake games straight after each other on PS4, glorious! I'm going to give Mafia 3 a go next since it already here or I may buy Detroit: Becoming Human.

    At a conference today
    Mitch spoke at it and was AWESOME.
    But...


    That does not make up for the fact that there was NO COFFEE SERVED.
    ALL.
    BLOODY.
    DAY.
    WTAF?!!
    :facepalm:

    In my opinion that made it a “nference”.
    The “co” were NOT deserved.

    Some dipshit thought it was a good idea to shoot at cars at SeaTac. Luckily nobody was hurt, but it’s unnerving and it is delaying my flight tonight.

    I don't mind* an absence of quality finger food / biscuits /pastries
    But no coffee ? That's bordering on inhuman.

    I need a coffee mug with a clicker button built in - I’m actually starting to worry about my current rate of consumption. The clicker might make the issue more real though

    I just noticed that tonights film starts later, is longer than usual, has an intermission and there is a talk. My 13 hour day just turned into 14. :(

    Ugh.. Intermissions in films are mostly a sign of pretentious garbage. Bad one.
