A Gift of Steam

As much as I love Steam, there’s one big problem with it: no “invisible” mode. Steam is always up and running when my computer is, so I never have it closed. I have not added any of my friends because my ratio of computer to games usage is very lopsided. All I will be getting is requests to play Left 4 Dead or Team Fortress 2 when all I have time to do is play a single-player game for thirty minutes, or get in a few brief sessions of CS: GO.

A four-hour game session every night is something I can only dream about. With the possibility of only one or two lengthy get-togethers a week, if that, adding anyone to my friends list is just leading them on.

I am also not in a clan or dabbling in the hat trade, so as you can guess, I have very few people on my Steam friends list. Aside from the token family members, there’s somebody with a Duke Nukem avatar and someone who hasn’t been online in fifty-five days. And one sole Russian friend. Since I don’t speak Russian, he is a source of mystery and intrigue.

I thought I heard a bird just now. Like the warble of one of their songs – the bird version of a rolling “R.” But maybe it was just my imagination. After all, I might possibly be greatly inebriated right now. It’s very easy to overtox on Snarktongue Venom.

The Last Starfighter
1984 / 101 min
Directed by: Nick Castle
Written by: Jonathan R. Betuel

The concept of “The Last Starfighter” is better than the movie. An alien named Centauri (Robert Preston) creates an arcade game and leaves it on Earth as a way to identify potential Starfighters, who would then be conscripted to pilot starships to protect the universe from destruction. After Alex scores a new record of 1,000,000 points in the game, Centauri stops by in his space car to whisk him away to an asteroid base where he meets a collection of various aliens who were too visually unappealing and dull to make it further than a concept drawing in the Star Wars trilogy.
