Αυτα δὲ σύ Καλλιόπα

Meredith. 21. Cis. University student. I like video games and Classics.

My title is fragment 79 of Sappho (And thou thyself, Calliope) and my url is from Vergil's Aeneid 4.252-3:

Hic primum paribus nitens Cyllenius alis constitit // Here first Mercury halted, poising on level wings

Primarily a video games blog. I also like to record podfic but I'm not very good at it. See my tags for the full slew of things I regularly post!

the more time I spend away from my xbox the more I want to replay dishonored at my own pace rather than rushing through it right before leaving on this trip

"Calm down, Liara. I was only joking."

Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up.

I read the lyrics of “In Tokyo” for the first time, and…well.

Down in Tokyo 
I made out with a robot
It felt gentle, but robust
I made out with a robot
Down in Tokyo 
I made love to a robot
It felt gentle, but robust

It had the strength of a man
But the sensual touch of a woman
With its entire processing power harnessed to give pleasure 
beyond human measure
In its capriciousness it did not appear neutral
This robot had read its Kama Sutra

nitensalis, it’s your song.

I can’t even begrudge you this. It’s true. It’s so true…..

And the Lord saw the wickedness of man was great and he repented that he had made man on the earth. Rain, Forty-days and Fourty-nights of the stuff, and he left not a thing that walked alive. You see my friends, even god is entitled to a do-over, and what is Columbia if not another ark, for another time.
