    If you’re commenting on The Last Of Us Part 2 with criticism “Bad Storytelling”, then you don’t know what Storytelling is.

    Get your dummies back in your prams, accept that you simply didn’t like it (bet most of you didn’t play it), and just move on.

    It’s okay not to like something.

    California Dreamin’ by The Mamas and the Papas

    Stopped into a church I passed along the way.
    Well, I got down on my knees (got down on my knees) And I pretend to pray (I pretend to pray)

    California Dreamin’ by The Mamas and the Papas

    Something in this song feels haunting to me. I can’t quite place my finger on it. It could be the way that each of their voices meets in that ethereal plane that few bands have managed to reach – a sound that I associate with the golden age of music, at least in my opinion.

    I remember watching part of a film in college film studies called “Chungking Express“, which featured this song prominently. I never really paid attention to that film, but I can’t help but feel I should go back and watch it now I’m older and… wiser?

    Really need to get back on these. Still haven’t played the 4th one at all.

    Started to learn Rust

    Today is the day when I finally started to learn a new programming language — one that I have never touched before. I had briefly touched on and considered Go. However, I have settled on Rust.

    It is the first compiled language that I have started to learn and am looking forward to the challenges it will bring.

    I will also be doing my best to blog about things I learn — much of it probably in more of a brain-dump format — to both help others as well as reinforcing my own learning.

    Days Gone has been absolutely incredible. Couple of buggy moments but on the whole loved the whole game and loving my hunt for the platinum trophy
