Herman Li is way into games. Had the pleasure of bumping into him like a decade ago at EGX (UK games expo in London) and he stopped and chatted to me about Gears.

I'm gonna use this video of all things to mildly rant on a subject that feels more and more curious day after day: at about 22 minutes into this video, the crew stops to consider an Uber ride and slightly jokes about how when you order an Uber (these days? I missed if they specified) you often find a 5 minute connection build to a 15 or 20 minute connection by the time you actually get committed. It's funny to joke about, I suppose, but...

I live in a the middle of the middle of the Midwest. Uber and Lyft were a couple years later to us than this or any coast. Gas is typically around $2. It's, right now, typically $4.50. I've got a situation where I could take a bus to one job then walk 13 minutes, the same bus to another job and walk 30 minutes, and in the abstract I'm fine with that...but I think about the conversation here about how 5 or more minutes of walking has become an automatic thought of an Uber.

The ride I took yesterday, the driver mentioned casually that he'd spent $60 more on his gas tank that day than he was used to a month or two ago. It made me think even more about two phrases that are often in the back of my mind: millenial lifestyle subsidy and the many variations of Uber makes no money. Does anyone else ever think about what effect this year is going to have on this expectation of ride share? More specifically to my previous anecdote, I'm not so worried about getting to work as much as I am getting home: those busses I'd mentioned before don't run by the time I get off, turning the 13 minute walk into a nearly 2 hour walk, and the 30 minute walk into a slightly more manageable 1 hour walk...just at 3 or 4 in the morning...

Weird that a Giant Bomb video of three cuties walking around Los Angeles has me on this train of thought, but...what if ride share dies in 2022 or shortly thereafter? I feel like for many people it's a question of convenience or safety (ie. a nice way to get stupid on a night out and get home smartly) but for some, it's become a quite reliable source of transportation to and from work. What if it just...disappeared? Yikes!

I could watch this crew for hours (and I do), loving the travel-log. These were always a lot of fun around E3 time.

If one's trousers ever rip of their own accord, it's most likely the seat. It gets the most wear the fastest. GL buying a single pair of trousers in LA.

I really appreciate that little throwback to the guitar riff and "video thing" at the beginning. I forgot how much I missed the intro guitar in GB videos.

This is the content I crave! Just so cool, hopefully we get more of these even outside of the (non-)E3 Season.

@nodima:Yeah, app based ride share really is not a substitute for proper public transportation and when those eventually crash it's going to fuck up entire cities and that's just scary.

I know this route/area they are walking around, and it's a very strange location for a E3-ish games event to take place.

can absolutely vouch for the taking the music festival bracelet into the shower thing being harrowing. I did a four day metal fest memorial day weekend and would have my arm raised over the shower because in my mind if the thing got wet it would disintegrate.

I had friends who would wear music festival bracelets for years after they attended. I tried wearing one after attending Glastonbury for the first time and lasted like three days before saying “no, this is grim” and put it in a box as a memento instead.

@tamoor Loved the 1UP talk, such a good website with brilliant writers and personalities. I remember that SFIV vid like it was yesterday, it was their coverage of Gerstmanngate that turned me on to Giantbomb too.
