Episode 11! We objected to the fact that we hadn’t played any videogames about lawyers. Super Paralegal 64 is hard to find, so David & Davis played Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and spent 24 minutes talking about murder, Metallica, and their college radio station instead.

Went to Beacon, NY for the 4th of July. The fireworks were rescheduled to the 5th of July. Whatever, we had fun.

Style is a byproduct of following oneʼs ideals, not an ingredient, itʼs something which comes out of a project, not goes into it. Style is often misinterpreted as a way to create an identity by superficially changing the look of oneʼs work. The aesthetic choices in these works have little or nothing to do with content and everything to do with looking different or current. This kind of thinking may be better defined as surface style.
Media which have an obsession with surface style are music videos, advertising and fashion. Their inherent aim is to stand out, to promote an identity, rather than pursue a vision, with only a small number of exceptions. The individuals making these works are often obsessed with their own industry and are viciously aware of being ripped-off or having their style bitten, as it were. Of course, originality is possible in any medium, and we all wish to create something new, something different and interesting, but this cannot be achieved by simply enforcing a look, it has to work from the ground up.”
