Nothing Gold Can Stay Life is fleeting. It is to be enjoyed.~Tori Amos All pleasure in life is ephemeral. In the poem Nothing Gold Can Stay, by Robert Frost, Frost connects the short-lived New England springs to the fleeting senses of euphoria in life. There is no guarantee that pleasure will last, and when it does not, the antithesis of joy may come in its place: “Then leaf subsides to leaf, so Eden sank to grief” [Line 5-6, Nothing Gold Can Stay] Frost tells his short story in a poem chronologically, starting at the beginning of spring. “Nature’s first green is gold, her hardest hue to hold.” [Line 1-2, Nothing Gold Can Stay] After the flowers and trees bud, Frost conjures images of young spring flowers. Like the tulip sprouting from the near-frozen ground in late march, joy, in whatever form it may take, may be puny and insignificant. As dawn goes down to day, pleasure sinks to content, and further to melancholy. Frost’s poem is a poignant reminder to savor the moment, delivered in eight brief lines. Nothing gold can stay, but this poem will. Leaves will fade, wilt, and glide down into their grave. But, as always, life will begin anew. By Isaac Ostrow & Cam Fries Continue reading

Despite its early release, Bluehole’s Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has been an amazing experience to behold. What sets this game apart from others is the fact that it is a battle royal style game. There aren’t many games of the like on the market right now, except DayZ or H1Z1, which have been popular in the past, but have been declining due to lack of content and lack of players. Battlegrounds captures the essence of those games, such as the amount of confusion you feel when you are getting shot at form three different angles, or when you are the last one alive, the pride and excitement you feel. All of this has succeeded in pulling me into the game and spending hours on end playing solos or jamming it out with a couple of friends.

“Every age has its storytelling form, and video gaming is a huge part of our culture. You can ignore or embrace video games and imbue them with the best artistic quality. People are enthralled with video games in the same way as other people love the cinema or theatre.”~Andy Serkis Today, gamers are seen as brain dead humans who are enslaved by their passion. Most people to don’t care to look deeper into how these games actually effect us. They say it induces violence, kills brain cells, is addicting, and ruins our lives. Although all we get from video games is joy. Gamers are mostly look down upon as lonely nerds who are throwing their life away. Yet, gamers are almost never like that. And the negative label on gaming is unnecessary and untrue. The countless rolling-on-the-floor laughing moments are a more important part of gaming than any killing, and those moments happen seamlessly from miles apart or sharing a table. It is our hope that tomorrow, gamers are viewed as mainstream, a common passion that is embraced by all. Our little group is already there. Enabled by our parents and their bank accounts, a little niche of our school community has been carved out by the gamers. Regardless of platform, we have intellectual discussions and laugh until our sides hurt. Outside of school, we will bring our PCs and laptops and monitors to each other’s houses and game the nights away. Our band of brothers would seem way out... Continue reading
