Today I took Ariah on a daddy-daughter date to BYU’s Museum of Fine Art. There was a pretty cool exhibit on modern superheroes, supervillains, and monsters. There was also a fifteen-minute video project of an 8 bit Mario world in which the original NES Super Mario finds himself in a decaying, messed up video game world where characters and images are all displaying incorrectly, and he goes on a depressing journey. It brought me back to the magical trippiness of a malfunctioning NES in the 80’s, though I could only take so much of the video. Ariah told me she wants to be a chef when she grows up, and she’s going to practice in her play kitchen. I told her she aught to practice in the real kitchen, but she insisted that the play kitchen would be more adequate for her training.
For the latter half of the day, I orchestrated a remix of the theme from Queen of the Flies.
