Touching the Moon

About 18 hours until I leave for the airport, so just a quick update.

Saturday was interesting. Saw Metropolis with a live orchestra, checked out some of the Seattle Center’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, and I touched a fragment of the moon taken during the Apollo 17 mission.

Lazy Dropbox Gallery. This will likely update during the day as I take breaks in last minute packing.

Now, if you’re happen to be wondering about the image name “Highly Reflective Surface’s Linear Boundary,” that is a not entirely oblique reference to “Mirror’s Edge“. Though tragically short, it is a favorite of mine. If that trailer seemed vaguely familiar, it’s quite possible you were actually introduced to Mirror’s Edge via last summer’s Spider-Man teaser. Hilarious.

Here’s a fun Jeopardy style brain teaser:

A late 2000s first-person video game put the player into the shoes of a female protagonist in a stark and semi-stylized world with an emphasis on environmental puzzles instead of combat. The literary themes include safety, surveillance, corruption, resistance, and tenacity. After completing the game, a song entitled “Still Alive” plays.

Click forward for the answer.

It is obviously both Portal and Mirror’s Edge.
And I wasn’t kidding about Still Alive.

  1. Ah, so this is what you meant when you texted me about ‘touching the moon’. And here I thought you meant a heightened, excited state of being. Silly me. I should have taken you more literally 🙂
