You have three deadlines approaching, including moving to a new apartment with no furniture in a coop building that has not yet approved your tenancy. What do you do? Make Last Minute Cable, from vignettes of life in America through Grand Theft Auto 5, of course!
Screenplay, location scouting, casting, stunts, cinematography, editing & direction by yours truly. Dedicated to Respo.

It gives you a chance to put yourself on the shrink couch in the privacy of your room. You get to know yourself little bit more. You know how flimsy the safeguards are for you to not do the wrong thing. Laws, religious ethics are flimsy to stop you from doing the wrong thing. You realize that at the end of the day, it is up to you as the individual, to do the right thing in a situation.
Found first Earth-like planet near the Cave Nebula, 2,479.89 light years from Sol (around 150 jumps) in the Elite simulation.
There are five planets in the system, including Earth-like Cave Sector CL-Y D15 4, which I am excited to be the first to discover, thus accomplishing my mission to find and name an Earth-like in the simulation. I dedicate this discovery to my late father, Peter Griffee.
The planet’s radius is 4,722km, about one third smaller than earth, and its days are, if I understand the orbital period time correctly, two times longer than on Earth.
Looking into a side of the Milky Way from the Asellus system in Elite: Dangerous. The glowing red star is Asellus Primus B, 0.16 light years away.
Thunder ends the hyperspace jump and we are now in a different here in a different now with glowing orb of fire filling our view. Hazard proximity sensors are going off and we maneuver away toward points of light in the darkness of space — some very bright, others invisible if not for the navigation overlays which indicate the orbits and positions of celestial bodies in this system.
The best gaming moments are social — we like sharing our experiences with others. I remember playing SimCity 2000 for hours together with a friend in São Paulo. I’d have the controls while he sat next to me and discussed the computer simulation before us.
