Thanks for tolerating a downshift of postings here at Bio Break — as if you had a choice! Between sickness, my family visiting over the weekend, and a butt-load of work, I haven’t found nearly enough time to piece together a solid daily post, nevermind catch up on my overworked feed reader.
[Fun Syp fact: My Google Reader now subscribes to 820 blogs. On the average day, that means I’m reading — or skimming — somewhere between 300 and 500 posts, more if Ysharros feels guilty and starts with a postathon.]
Anyway, no coherent post tonight, I just wanted to highlight a recent article by Larisa (it was kind of hard pulling a Quote of the Day out of it, due to its structure). I don’t follow a lot of WoW-dedicated blogs these days, but the Pink Pigtail Inn will always be in my reader.
She takes a pretty upbeat approach to why, after all of the arguments and flamebait and angst blows over, people still love WoW. And while I’m not a current fan of the game, I have my cherished memories, and I admire anyone who decides to simply show why they love something they love.
We get so caught up in trying to one-up each other over games, to slam and critique and continue on our quest to find the “best” that we often forget there are a lot of folks who are quite content where they are, and they don’t always understand the venom that’s spewed their way just for liking a game that someone else has decided to hate, for whatever reason.
Also, Psychochild has a great essay that provides a sane counterpoint to my cough drop-fueled rantings.
