Demon in the closet

As I lie back and close my eyes to another night, I feel the demon in the closet readying to spite. As my blood runs cold in the veins and the heart beats wild, I prepare myself for a run-in: elusive, yet profiled. I notice that I’ve grown much weaker, […]

We All Play Mario.

Super Mario is the best game I have ever played. Or probably, it reminds me so much of the zeitgeist of my childhood – the innumerable bouts of amusement my brother and I had together (Mario’s younger brother Luigi thus gets an honorary mention) – that my judgement fails to be […]
