Litte about Video Games, Food, and Music
Ahh Video Games, what a great subject. I'm a fan of video games, but I am not a hard-core gamer. I appreciate and understand how much work and dedication it takes to create a video game, specially in our time. It always amazes me how we have developed so much that we are able to create these truly astonishing pixelated art. I don't know why I never got into video games as much as some of my close friends and even relatives, I guess I was just always the type of kid that loved to be outside and proffered a good game of hide-and-go-seek over rescuing Princess Peach from Bowser. Today, games have become so complex and mind boggling that they have exceeded my gaming capability, I am only half decent in sports games (only because I'm a big sports fan). I can watch my cousin or someone who is really good at any game play a video game for hours though! I'm not sure why, I guess is always cool to see someone beat the machine right? I believe our generation is the end of parents that suck at video games, in the future you are not going to teach your dad what the X button does, instead you are going to have to share video-game playing time with him. Everything for recreation is fine with me, but video games can be addicting so always with moderation ;). Food, wow, I love food. I am Peruvian, we have exquisite food there, and I also got a grandmother with years and years of cooking experience. She is the best cooker so I don't really miss the culinary aspect of my beloved Peru. Music, I wish i could play any instrument, any! but i suck at that haha. My personal favorite genre of music is Hip-Hop. Conscious Hip-hop and Underground Hip-hop mostly, none of the trash you hear on MTV or the radio. Hip-hop has truly made me change the way i think about things, it really has shaped my life. I don't experience much with other types of genre, but I read and follow many blogs who do promote music like heavy metal or dubstep and other kinds, so it never hurts to listen to new stuff. If the music has good lyrics I would usually like it. Oh man I didn't want to make this post so long but I'm passionate about the things I do I guess.
