    Takeshi’s Challenge

    Takeshi’s Challenge is a Japanese action-adventure video game. The game was developed under the direction of comedian-turned actor and film director Takeshi Kitano. Kitano incorporated many of his unique and controversial ideas into the game. For instance, the player can beat up a yakuza gangster at a pachinko gambling establishment, and take the yakuza’s money to exchange for prizes. The player can use a hang-glider to fly over into a strange land called the “Red Country” (an amalgam between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany). The player can gain access the Red Country if they pass over the four other islands, but a huge mountain blocks the way into the country, and the player will be forced to crash into either the mountain or the ground, resulting in an automatic game over screen. There is also a choice on the password-entry screen (“Punch the old man”) which also results in an automatic game over, even when the player has not even started the game. Other in-game events include: a game over screen where the player’s character is given a funeral, singing karaoke at a pub (using the second-controller’s built-in microphone), the main character divorcing his wife and paying a settlement, beating up yakuza, or seeing inhumane comments on store signs.

    Honoré de Balzac

    Written between 1837 and 1843, Lost Illusions reveals, perhaps better than any other of Balzac’s ninety-two novels, the nature and scope of his genius. The story of Lucien Chardon, a young poet from Angoulême who tries desperately to make a name for himself in Paris, is a brilliantly realistic and boldly satirical portrait of provincial manners and aristocratic life. Handsome and ambitious but naïve, Lucien is patronized by the beau monde as represented by Madame de Bargeton and her cousin, the formidable Marquise d’Espard, only to be duped by them. Denied the social rank he thought would be his, Lucien discards his poetic aspirations and turns to hack journalism; his descent into Parisian low life ultimately leads to his own death.

    Sven Hedin

    Sven Hedin was a Swedish geographer, topographer, explorer, photographer, and travel writer, as well as an illustrator of his own works. During four expeditions to Central Asia he discovered the Transhimalaya (once named the Hedin Range in his honor) and the sources of the Brahmaputra, Indus and Sutlej Rivers, Lake Lop Nur, and the remains of cities, grave sites and the Great Wall of China in the deserts of the Tarim Basin. The posthumous publication of his Central Asia atlas marked the conclusion of his life’s work.

    Room in Rome is a masterpiece. It’s a rapture. It’s cosmic and it’s a very deep exploration of women.
