It seems that spring has finally hit England, and so now we’re spending some hours working from the garden, walking on the beach, and spying on seagull babies hidden on top of the various rooftops in our neighbourhood. It feels great to finally see some sun.
This month’s special mention goes to the show Mythic Quest. This show has been getting a lot of love, and I think it’s deserved. Some of the problems and excitement of the workplace depicted in the show resonate hard with some of our own experiences of working in creative occupations (my wife has worked in the gaming industry).
It’s especially interesting to see how the show exposes narcissism, even though it simultaneously seems to celebrate it sometimes. They do a great job in developing the characters (some slower than others). It just keeps building on itself, which is great.
But what hit hardest was the stand-alone episode A Dark Quiet Death. We felt that one, deeply. It isn’t a funny episode, instead it shows what happens when good ideas become basic, soulless creations when you’re not careful.
We’ve been playing a lot of Elder Scrolls Online again this month. As I mentioned last month, on those days or evenings where we’re not entirely sure what to do, exploring the world and lore of the Elder Scrolls series is a pretty nice way of spending some time together. And there’s been a lot of those days this month.
We’re still going through Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series in the form of audiobooks. Currently, we’re listening to The Shepherd’s Crown, the last book in the series 😢.
