Playlist Thursday: The Pleasure that My Sadness Brings

Aristotle defines tragedy as something providing a "catharsis of pity and fear", which is a fancy pants way of saying tragedy lets us feel strong emotions like loss or fear or pain without the real triggering life events.

The Other HoTS: Heroes of the Storm Alpha Impressions

I don't really understand why Blizzard decided to name their new MOBA something with the exact same acronym as Heart of the Swarm, but there you are. The ways of Blizzard are a mystery, not to be understood by mortals.

Beauty in Unexpected Places: NOS4A2

I figure its about time to ramble a bit about a book I like. Fair warning, pretty much all the book posts I'll end up writing will be about books I enjoyed. Early-twenties Sarah would have gone on at length about how awesome a good hating is for the system, but that was my early twenties self. She was bit of a judgey bitch. Older, wiser Sarah finds that being enthusiastic about cool things is much more satisfying than hating on uncool things.
