"Because it is possible to create…one has anxiety. One would have no anxiety if there were no possibility whatever. Creating, actualizing one’s possibilities…always involves destroying the status quo, destroying old patterns within oneself. Progressively destroying what one has clung to from childhood on, and creating new and original forms and ways of living. If one does not do this, one is refusing to grow, refusing to avail himself of his possibilities; one is shirking his responsibility to himself."

From the New Yorker: THE KISS THAT CHANGED VIDEO GAMES

On the first day of the show, the game’s producers, Kana Ryan and Chris Trottier, watched in disbelief as two of the female Sims attending the virtual wedding leaned in and began to passionately kiss. They had, during the live simulation, fallen in love. Moreover, they had chosen this moment to express their affection, in front of a live audience of assorted press. Following the kiss, talk of The Sims dominated E3. “You might say that they stole the show,” Barrett said. “I guess straight guys that make sports games loved the idea of controlling two lesbians.”

This is an interesting piece about The Sims and how an unplanned, same-sex kiss at E3 in 1999 made people take notice of a game that was almost shuttered.

VIDEO PREMIERE: Doseone + The Light Of Love Children's Choir, "Weight in Song"

Originally, Camp A Low Hum was set in an abandoned elementary school, and now, has moved to a beautiful summer camp in the woods of New Zealand.  Artists stay in camp cabins, tents are pitched everywhere and stages are nestled in forests, hidden on top of mountains, and on the bank of a beautiful lagoon.  Beyond the amazing location, i have never played a fest with such great sound and lights…every other fest should be taking notes.

Gutted that it’s the last and that I never got to experience Camp :(

What once seemed like a pipe dream for the longest time, Neutral Milk Hotel have spent the last year touring the world, and they haven’t stopped since. 

And you can tell that they absolutely love being back together on stage
