Weekend ReadingAugust 5th, 2011
Daffodil yellow. No, wait. More like street-marking-yellow. That’s the color of my bedroom in my new apartment. Yeah, it’s not gonna last. That baby’s primed and ready for some nice, simple, white walls. So that’s my weekend; cleaning, painting, and moving in. What are your weekend plans? If you’re looking for some great articles to read, well, you’ve come to the right place! Grab an iced tea and get cozy-here are some of my favorite articles this week.
Nina Yau, Castles in the Air-”Tell Your Insecurities to Shut Up and 241 Other Truisms (A Manifesto)

“Our bodies won’t last forever but our actions in this world can continue on for generations”
Colin Wright, Exile Lifestyle-”Social Games Gamers Play”
After attending a LAN party, Colin reflects on the social state of the gaming milieu, and how gaming has become mainstream. (As a gamer nerd myself, I especially enjoyed this!)
“People of all ages are heeding the call of the digital world, and both guys and girls are finding solace in a quick game before dinner or a grudge-match rumble during their lunch break. The games of today are themselves different, certainly, but it’s the social aspect of how they’re built and played that’s so fascinating to me.”
