Video Game Metaphors

story posted Sunday, August 19th, 2018 12:26 pm GMT -5

For the longest time, I’ve had this image of a video game in my mind that I thought was a metaphor for life. It was a racing game that used forced perspective, with the road stretching to the horizon and an endless supply of other cars coming at you that you needed to avoid and pass. I got really good at the game, basically being able to play non-stop, never losing and only quitting when I got bored. Pass, pass, pass…run up the score.

Today I thought I’d research this game, always thinking it was Enduro by Activision. I never had an Atari 2600, though, so if this is the game, I must’ve played it at a friend’s house (I seem to recall using the “paddle” controllers for it). I had a number of Intellivision driving games (Auto Racing, Bump ‘n’ Jump, Triple Action), but none of them fit the look and feel model I’m thinking about…

Jack White at the Armory

story posted Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 11:45 pm GMT -5

I’ve been lucky to witness a number of amazing guitarists perform live over the years: Prince, Richard Thompson, Mike Campbell, Slash, The Edge, Kirk Hammett, Mike McCready, Nels Cline and Neil Young to name a few. On Monday night, I finally saw my biggest remaining bucket list guitarist, Jack White, at the Minneapolis Armory.

A relative rarity in Minnesota, the show sold out instantly and the hype was thick. The White Stripes. The Raconteurs. The Dead Weather. Third Man Records. It Might Get Loud. Portlandia. The Muppets. Hell, he even played Elvis in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. Everybody wants to see Jack.
