Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.
Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.
Archer is a cartoon that took me a few episodes to warm up to, but once I had a basic understanding of each character, it began to be pretty entertaining. It may not be laugh-out-loud funny, but the witty, dry humor is appealing. The diversity of the hijinks the cast get into keep the show fresh, as does the surprising continuity. It’s my new favorite cartoon for sure.

I finally got around to playing the video game associated with the soundtrack I listened to months ago. It’s dope. It’s got beautiful graphics, fun gameplay, an old school feel, and the music works well with the overall aesthetic. It’s challenging, too, as you might expect from a game channeling retro Zelda feels.
