The rounded edges of your pink DS Lite rest snugly between a cradle of adolescent fingerpads and thumbs that survey blocky buttons below like twin cobras poised to strike. Textureless threads of melodica augment your balloon's-eye view of the village below as a 16 bit avatar treads a dirt path, leaving a neat succession of ovoid indentations in his wake.
Face it, y'all: these days, "reality" just ain't cutting it anymore.

Every morning as a child, I’d wake up and watch music videos. The toss-up between MTV and VH1: who’d play what? Will I get Bush or Naughty-by-Nature? Eminem or Smashmouth? Shaggy or Mystical? Reality was I always enjoyed the slow bangers. Show More Summary
So apparently, beer is having a bit of a moment. Why, I went to a local tavern just the other day to have a pint and was shocked, shocked, to see all these different kinds of beers on the menu: IPA, porter, sour, and on and on.
