Magic, Vespas and Mahjong

Written by Dominik Schwind on September 3, 2018.

Hello internet friends,

I hope this letter finds you well. It’s September already which is pretty wild. Summer seems to be over – when I put out the laundry it isn’t dry almost immediatly, which is a bit of a bummer. I’ve just gotten used to that.

Way back just when it came out I used to play this weird nerdy card game called Magic: The Gathering. The name? The worst. Me? Not a good player. I think except for some random moments of luck I lost all my games. And yet it was quite a fun – I liked the back story or at least the glimpses of the back story that I made up in my mind based on the cards I owned.
Turns out that game is still around and it still seems to be fun: The Twenty-Five-Year Journey of Magic: The Gathering Maybe I need to dig out my old cards and get some nerdy friends to do the same.

On the completely opposite side of the cool spectrum are these guys: Extreme Vespas in Indonesia
(Yes, yes. I know you’ve probably seen this before, they have been everywhere last week but still. Look at them again. So cool.)

Now I haven’t seen Crazy Rich Asians, yet – I don’t even think they show it here, yet, and while I was perfectly fine watching Solo on my own, (lol) I’m sure as hell not going to go to a cinema to watch a rom-com in a non-date environment. And given that I don’t care about spoilers I read and enjoyed this article discussing a small but significant detail in the movie: What was really happening in Crazy Rich Asians’ pivotal mahjong scene

I’m not too sure what to think about this idea: To Get Ready for Robot Driving, Some Want to Reprogram Pedestrians
But mostly I think: fuck this. What we need aren’t driverless cars but a much nicer and reliable public transit system.
Or these funny little pods that drive on their own little elevated roads. I’d take those, too. They’re kinda funny.

That’s it! Toodles!

And here are a few older ones:
