That building is precisely what I like about Europe. The mixing of old traditional stuff with crazy ass modern stuff. Just casually side by side. How boring it would be if every town in Europe strictly stuck to some sort of design guide. I see buildings like this as a sort of shout saying "We're still here!", in a borderline obnoxious, yet still quite cool way.
Wow. That is what is like when you cross paths with someone that is truly unhinged. If I were Jay, I'd be checking to see if there are any bunnies in boiling pots on my stove.
otherwise I might see some posts with wildly hysterical hypotheses of what is for sure gonna happen that have nothing to do with the actual bill in the article.
Edge Magazine is running a story about the development of the real-time strategy genre. They credit Dune II: the Building of a Dynasty with establishing the basic concepts that led to more popular titles like Command & Conquer and the original Warcraft. "[Westwood Studios co-founder Brett] Sperry describes Dune II's core challenge as 'combining combat, exploration and production at a particular pace and rhythm to make it all exciting and almost out of control. That was a key part of what made it so addictive.' Indeed, the experience was quite unlike more staid turnbased strategies, where success or failure rolled in slowly rather than rushing over sand dunes at the speed of an action game. 'You had to think and respond fairly quickly, and in realtime, or else your base and forces would all be overrun. And as we developed the game further, it became clearer how the pacing and battle scenario design were all a delicate balance.'"
I couldn't agree more. Pinko lefty peaceniks have always been the strongest advocates of limited human rights and torture. Bravo good sir for alerting us to the root of all evil!
