Reggie and Alex seem to have an almost resonant tendency to frame things with an emotionless pragmatism. Realistic to a degree that’s almost unsettling. The more they have scenes with each other the more this seems to come out in them. It’s kind of amusing. To me anyway.
Tomorrow my nephew is visiting for Christmas. He’s old enough now to understand the concept that I am a collector of things. Additionally the cultural shift towards never growing up means that I share interests with a… 5(?) year old. Not something I’m proud of, but the fact of the matter is that Minecraft keeps being fun year upon year as do Lego sets based on said franchise, and this is the reality of human life now. We never really have to give up childish things, we just add responsibility to the list of things we have to deal with. I’ve seen many people with a handful of children lamenting having no time to play video games & that’s just normal now. Is it good, is it bad, honestly, I don’t think anything much matters anymore. Just living as best you can is enough as long as you don’t ruin someone else’s attempts to do the same. Regardless, I’m setting up a table so my nephew can see my big boy Minecraft Legos. Chances are he’ll be bored with them instantly because anything you spend time doing for a child is always ignored for random crap. I’m going to do it anyway though.
