With Tis

50% video game soundtracks, 110% heart. we're gonna dance, we're gonna feel feelings, and we're gonna make connections between things that don't initially seem connected.

ep6: "battle without honor or humanity"

Until very recently, video gaming has been a medium almost entirely obsessed with competition and conflict. Until very recently, it has also been a medium almost entirely aimed at the very young and the very young at heart.

<extremely Sex and the City voice> And I couldn't help but wonder. . .is there a correlation? As we get older, and as video games age with us, what happens to all that fighting? Does it stay with us? Or do we put it away and find something else?

Tonight we'll go through some personal music history to see what fighting has sounded like for me, and to see if there might be other, newer, better possibilities out there.
