So four years ago Shut Up & Sit Down played a Goddamn Megagame.  About 60 people in a community center, split into 4-person nations (and an alien faction), had to navigate Earth's first contact.  It was *glorious*.  I've shared it before but I will spoil nothing, and I randomly went back to rewatch it today.

Turns out they released a sequel just last month!  And good gravy, the scale has ramped up... maybe tenfold, literally.  The chaos and difficulty of basic communications is just sublime.  Major props to the camera crew and editors for forging a narrative from a game where the prime minister basically shut down from the sheer amount of information to process.  The same team played Japan again, along with some new cabinet members, in:
Watch The Skies 2

It got weird.

Kate Bush is as weird as noteworthy. No mockery, just genuine insecure laughter.

lol yes dj isaac - bad dreams brought me there, it's weird I pretty much hated that music back when it was popular, but I remember the samples quite fondly, and lately I noticed that there is worse music to game to because it drains so little attention, and it definitly lends some of these damn interesting bridges into the analogue age from time to time.


If things go on like this I will have converted from music snob, to "can find good in everything"... sure there are large swaths of contemporary pop that still make me irrationally angry, and I'm an extremly picky dancer... But so long as I keep away from commercial radio everything is well in the realm of music.
