“Since then, I’ve worked with different programing and stuff like that… and also RPG maker… which is not the same as programming, don’t get confused with my statement there. If you can use RPG Maker that does not mean you’re going to become a game designer.
Sorry if I just crashed some people’s dreams. It’s something that SCAD constantly makes fun of. Whenever you get into some of the game design classes they’re like, ‘Has anyone worked in any game design programs or have the languages?’ and half the class is like ‘YEAH I MADE ME SOME RPG MAKER GAMES’ and all the professors are like ‘You should go home.’ And then there’s like one guy who’s like ‘I’ve used C plus… or C plus plus or C sharp’ and they’re like ‘Okay. You can stay.’”—
I don’t write much anymore, but I do have a writing journal and sometimes I get struck with inspiration. Unfortunately, that spark dies out as quickly as it came.
I’d open up the document, type down a sentence or two, and then stop. “Why the hell did I think this was any good?” is usually what I’d be thinking as I would rush to press the ‘x’ button.
However, the type of program I use automatically saves everything I’ve written, even if I don’t save an actual file. Currently, there is a draft that always pops up when I open the program, consisting of a single sentence. It reads:
"And with this, we’ll live."
The last time I wrote anything was a long time ago, so I don’t remember what I was thinking of when I initially typed that sentence down.
I wonder what sort of story I was going to write with that phrase…
Urban Outfitters plans to split the facade of a new store on the Upper West Side into four distinct “storefronts”: a hat store, a hardware store, a neighborhood bar and a bodega.
“The whole idea was to do this kind of ironic statement of lining the building with storefronts that would be reminiscent of independent businesses,” says Ron Pompei, creative director of Pompei A.D., which designed the store, slated to open in August.
“Ironic statement?” This is hipsterdom at a new low, and I’m going to be sick.
