I’m a mediocre flute player; I’ve been playing for quite a while, but I’ve never prioritized practicing and due to this have never had the kind of skill that dedicated musicians earn. Making music was something I enjoyed but didn’t move my life around. I stopped taking band after my freshman year of high school in order to make room for the STEM classes I wanted to take, something I now regret.

“Donut County,” developed by Ben Esposito and published by Annapurna Interactive, can best be described as one of the those games you just see around. You know, the ones you see on YouTube thumbnails, briefly mentioned in a couple internet posts you saw, and glanced at on the Steam store page. One might be surprised then to find that its publisher, Annapurna Interactive, is responsible for both “What Remains of Edith Finch” and “Goroga,” two powerhouse indie entries that burst onto the scene as instant classics.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you were to build a bridge? Is that an idea many people have or just me? Regardless, let's say that you have thought of it. Setting aside the massive logistical and financial challenges one may face when planning and constructing said bridge, do you ever just fear that when the two sides of the bridges meet in the middle, you go up there only to find that the two sides of this massive creation of yours are not aligned to connect together?

 Few people ask for my take on philosophical concepts and ideas, which is probably for the best. I would just lie to them as I typically do for whenever I say anything on any matter which I don't really care for. Though by that logic, I am probably lying to myself by saying such a thing to you, the reader, at this very moment as well.

 From 10:00 am on 27 September to 2:00 pm on 28 September, the nation watched in either anger or fear as the United States Senate Judiciary Committee determined the fate of the Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Judge Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior by multiple women during his time in high school and college, has survived a cutthroat vote in committee and is now a single step away from serving on the highest court in the country for the remainder of his life.
