Until recently, I never saw much of the appeal of playing demos. Why play a demo when you can play the full game? Maybe it’s information overload in our current content culture, where you can spend a lifetime playing one small subsect of games without running out of new content, same for movies and albums? I ran into three examples that helped me figure out my stance: Without unlimited time, how can we play/do everything?
Going through my things to downsize leads to interesting questions. If I want to watch a movie like Charly, based on Flowers For Algernon, should I watch it on the VHS tape I own or does it matter if I watched it somewhere else? If the legal options aren’t as readily available, what’s the problem with watching it through other routes? Who profits but the current legal owner? Let’s explore those and other problematic questions.

We only have a finite amount of time in life. Every minute you spend on one idea, project, or person detracts from another possibility. I have over 20 reviews I’ve been considering writing lately. Some may come to fruition, others, not. The list of reviews I’m most interested in writing in some form or another is a tie-in to a new project I’ve joined that may lead to more success than completing any of these reviews.
