Writings.

"Definition of language: a subset of the world of a cosubject whose members are common conceptions of conceptions."
  - Studies and Applications of Pure Ethics.

Film.

Working meticulously, Stanley Kubrick probed the boundaries of every cinematic genre, leaving us with an uncompromising artistic vision exemplified by Lolita, A Clockwork Orange, and Dr. Strangelove.

Literature.

Pushing the light of the English language a little futher against darkness, Virginia Woolf expressed profound and genuine aspects of the human condition in Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse.

Quiz Bowl.

Contemptuous of buckets full of life-devouring trash, I wrote myself some legitimate film tossups and breathed seriousness into questions on the male gaze, then retired before I heard a fly die when I buzzed.

Images.

"Accidental..., for one's mind was already littered and stuffed beyond hope with the millions of chance images stored away without order in the memory."
  - The Education of Henry Adams.

Games.

Bringing together drama, music, film, literature, myth, religion, and human interaction, Final Fantasy II began an era of story-telling where the protagonist decides her own fate.

Links.

"So much depends, she thought, upon distance: whether people are near us or far from us; for her feeling for Mr. Ramsay changed as he sailed further away..."
  - To the Lighthouse.
