Two years we lived in that place. Two long and daunting years. To most, that's hardly enough to settle in and get a feel for the building. For my wife and I, however, it was two years too long. It was two years we will always remember for all the wrong reasons. And I'll tell you why.
Surely I wasn't the only one who thought the nineties were a weird decade for cartoons, right? There's no way I was hallucinating the days I witnessed a bald kid talking to a plank of wood, was I? That's something I quite clearly remember in fact – and I'm not entirely sure I even want to. And yet, it's these strange memories of the iconic shows that partially shaped mine and millions of others minds. It's these original flavours of creativity that forged a great childhood for me, and most likely you too. That's something no nineties kid can deny.
It's not easy being a gamer parent. You're forever trying to fight for the controller. Your kids won't stop slobbering over the directional pad. And, you rarely have more than ten seconds to immerse yourself in a game without being requested. That kind of sucks – especially after a long day in the office or when you've had a pretty crap day overall. Alas, parenting always come first, and those little tantrums we have are mere specs in comparison to what our kids cry for. Or, so we're led to believe, anyway.
Black Mirror is a Netflix series that has, at times, come so close to home that it is almost frighteningly accurate. With unique episodes covering some of the most controversial subjects in the world, Black Mirror captures the possible outcomes for the future and portrays them in hard-hitting chapters. These have often left viewers numb and afraid of what lies ahead for mankind. But, Black Mirror has a way of clawing away and drugging you into wanting more.
Gentlemen's Clubs have been around for many, many years. And still, not everybody entirely agrees with them. Depending on who you talk to and what questions you ask, you might just find two completely opposite individuals. That's alright, because truth be told, nobody is forced to visit one to begin with. And, to be fair, it's not like the dancers even care whether you show up or not. They still get paid at the end of the week regardless of the ambivalence over the topic. But, for those who are between choices and intrigued to know the details behind the experience – allow me to clue you in. Although, to be honest, you might not be overly thrilled to hear what I have to say.
I'll be the first to admit it, alright? I don't have much cooking experience. And it probably doesn't help that I tend to opt more towards quick snacks as oppose to sixty-minute banquets which I could probably eat in the same amount of time. Now, throw a bit of gaming as a past-time in there and you're suddenly looking at mere seconds of cooking preparation time. So, what do you do? Do you, of course, take gaming out of the equation and devote more time to the stove? Or do you balance your time by eating snappier meals? Well, ask any gamer – any gamer at all, and you'll probably hear the same answer.
