Maybe This Could Be Your Life

Maybe this could be your life. Dressed in something nice. Dancing in a line. As you wait in the line, to dance, you think of what manner of dance you’re going to do. When it gets to be your turn, you clap your hands, spring into motion, and do the dance. Then you get back into the line and think about how your dance was, or was not, the best dance of the afternoon/evening. 

Maybe this could be your life. Practicing for your school’s Christmas pageant. You are filled with confidence because you’ve always had a knack for the arts, and for dancing. Your hair looks great. You farted at one point, but no one noticed. Or if they did, they didn’t say anything. You’re wearing the sweatpants your Mom bought for you at the dollar store. You washed them in the sink the night before and laid them out to dry on your dresser. 

Maybe this could be your life. Maybe this could be your culturally diverse gay family. 

Maybe this could be your life. Maybe you own hair clippers to keep yourself tight and nice. Maybe your girlfriend buys you a new bottle of cologne every time she goes to the gas station. Maybe you collect hats. Hats from all over the world. 

Maybe this could be your life. Maybe you like to enjoy a nice cigar on Christmas morning. Maybe that cigar came from someone’s butt. Maybe it just came from the store. Maybe it’s all you got for Christmas. Maybe it’s all you wanted.

In Brent Clark's series "Season's Greetings," Dec. 25 is an excuse for over-the-top consumerism characterized by excessive decorating, sometimes whimsical, at other times verging on the surreal.

My Christmas tree is rubbish in comparison. Not just to this one. To every other tree.

I have no complaints when developers add a couple of snowmen, a Father Christmas costume or a giant rolling snowball to their games at this time of year, but it’s rare for a seasonal update to impress as much as the level added in Polynomial’s latest update. I’ll admit, I’ve only ever played the demo of the “musical space shooter” but you’d have to be a fool to argue that its dancing fractals aren’t a wonderful sight to behold. Are you a fool? I hope not, because then you might not be overjoyed by the abstract made merry in the video below. Perhaps try the demo (Windows, Linux, Mac)? The full game is currently on sale for £1.49 over on Steam.
