Art Assignment #5 - Quietest Place
I know part of this art assignment was the experience or exploring your neighborhood in a way you might not normally explore, but I already had a place in mind. While I knew this would be the quietest place, it wasn’t filled with pristine quiet for the entire time I was there. A plane flying overhead created a drone, and some children from a family Easter gathering in the neighborhood to the east began to travel into the park right as I was about to leave. It made me think about how while this may be the quietest place right now, depending on the time at which I visit this place it could be quieter, or more active. While it is not a secret place, it certainly is not frequently traveled either.
If I came to this spot in winter, I’m confident that it would be as silent as the grave since there wouldn’t be any birds to break the silence with their songs like there was today. However it’s possible that in the future as the city plans to develop the former residential area behind me into a community park, there will come increased usage and thus more noise. Also this area has only recently become the ‘quietest place’ as this area, as recently as 2009 was not vacant public land, but a collection of residential homes. So while I know the quietness of this place is subject to change, I’m happy knowing that it still exists as I last remember it.
AIN’T NO PARTY LIKE A WEST COAST PARTY ‘CAUSE A WEST COAST PARTY DON’T STOP
AIN’T NO PARTY LIKE A PYONGYANG PARTY BECAUSE A PYONGYANG PARTY IS ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY
One of the biggest turn-offs to newer games like Destiny and Titan Fall is the lack of dedicated single-player story lines. I feel as if newer games are trending towards forced social interactions and dependence on other players to advance the story line. Tbh I’d rather immerse myself in a game and every aspect of it rather than have some twelve year old yelling in his mic about his alleged sexual relationship with my mother. While the two may not necessarily be completely dichotomous I feel as if Titan Fall really dropped that ball on that and hopefully Destiny doesn’t follow its tracks.
I haven’t played titian fall, but this was my biggest gripe with Brink. From all of the previews it looked like a really interesting world that could have an incredible story, but it’s simply “another class based shooter”
The oldest song was probably sung by a bird. Maybe a dinosaur, YOU DON’T KNOW!

I think the weirdest part of ‘adult life’ is not having a fundamental change in your daily schedule every 4 months.
