Be back in a bit!

Sincere apologies for the protracted absence! (Inexplicably, though: now more spam comments than ever before. What the…?)

In the short interim before resumption, here is a video, embedded below, that popped up in my YouTube subscriptions the day before yesterday. It heralds what is sure to be the winter season’s hottest fad, the PES Fireplace Screensaver.

P.S. Still here? Perhaps you are wondering how PES correlates with videogames? This is how.

    Man, that is incredible. I love the idea. What’s so uncanny and strange about the PES Fireplace screensaver is how hypnotic it is—like real fire!—and how pleasant it is to fall asleep to, also like real fire, but without the worry of, you know, fire! ;)

    You just reminded me of something extremely weird: when I was a kid, I used to daydream that, in my young millionaire years, I would have my own indoor beach. Chlorinated, of course. And… I just realized that Ray Bradbury’s The Veldt is a cautionary warning against thematic environments (and, therefore, videogames).
