/AFK – June 21

friskydingoI’m off today for a week-long mission trip with our youth group, so no more updates until the 28th!  In the meantime, enjoy these posts that caught my eye this past week, and check out some of the excellent blogs on my blogroll:


This is one of the more fascinating blog experiments I’ve read.  Writer Robin created two homeless characters in Sims 3 — a crazy father named Kev and a downtrodden girl named Alice — and watched them as they struggled to survive in the world.  Even though it’s just a game, their journey through “life” is heartwrenching, touching and sometimes utterly depressing.  I’m pulling for Alice to find long-lasting happiness.

    My girlfriend is absolutely crazy about Alice and Kev. She told me about it a while back, and she keeps me updated on the happenings as she reads it.

    I know that I’m biased against it because I’ve never thought the Sims franchise deserved the fame it has received, but I’ll admit the Alice and Kev blog is a very unique way to play the game. Or any game for that matter. I have to give kudos where they’re due.

    I might have to finally breakdown and read it myself if it keeps going for a while. I hate to have blogs lose steam just as I get into them.

    If it was socialized heals at least everyone would get healed.
