It was about getting back into heavy metal which you used to listen to, but felt like you grew out of, specifically Lacuna Coil. Is one responding to nostalgia when you enjoy it or do you actually like this music once again?

She related the game to transitioning, and touched on phenomenology, creating the self, and the possibility of transitioning as an exploration and play with ways of being in the world. What kind of life do I want to live with others? </span> <b>Bailey</b><span style="font-weight: 400;"> read "The Big Report" a comic about zoomers, and their future reactions to environmental catastrophe, about living in the end and how new children come into the world nihilistic. In it even the apocalypse disappoints in the end when the world is saved. But when those nihilistic children inevitably have children of their own, and they see how sloppy those children become, the zoomers then in turn destroy the world for their own children because that is the “decent thing to do--as we all do". </span>
