Friendship is not always the sequel to obligation.

I cannot believe I have to fucking explain this...

Do NOT give your birds cigarettes (even if they are unlit) or alchohol. This should be a no-brainer but apparently some people are too fucking dumb to realize this.

Do not smoke around your bird. Or any other pets for that matter.

Do not leave toddlers or babies alone (unsupervised) with birds. They could injure each other and toddlers will most likely not know to not squeeze a bird (birds lack a diaphragm which means if you put too much pressure on their chest they will suffocate and die.) Your bird could also bite a toddler or baby which could (depending on the size of the bird and how hard they bite) really hurt them.

Do not leave cats or dogs alone with your birds. Even if they get along and play, cat and dog saliva could kill a bird.

Do not leave a bird out of the cage when you are not at home. They could get into mischief and hurt themselves.

Do not give your birds drugs and this includes caffeine.

Video games are the perfect form for storytelling — and succeed where movies fall short

There’s a moment in What Remains of Edith Finch — one moment among many, really — where I had to pause while playing.

“You have to experience this,” I said to my partner, passing over the controller, as it thrummed softly, rhythmic and steady. The controller’s haptic feedback played a key role in how the story was being told in that particular moment. I won’t spell out what happened — it’s a pretty big spoiler. So let me just say that it involves a heartbeat.

Where an Edith Finch book would tell or a movie would show, the game can force players to feel its most intimate stories. My experience playing Edith Finch habitually transcended passive digestion. Holding the controller meant more than reading the words on the screen or hearing Edith’s voice through the speakers.

Writing for the Atlantic in April, Ian Bogost argued that video games are better without stories because movies and books “tell them better.” But the reductive reasoning peppered throughout Bogost’s article fails to take into account a vital interactive imperative. Some stories need the interaction only video games can offer to achieve their powerful, climactic sequences. It’s something that other, more traditional mediums simply can’t match.
