I was at a concert recently, and I noticed a very strange phenomenon. Despite all of the differences, all of the unique lives, we we all there for one purpose. We were all there to enjoy the power of the music. That is the influence music can have on our lives. It can give us the chance to come together as separate, distinct individuals and celebrate together as familiar strangers. Why can't that happen in the rest of life? Why can't we find common ground and use that to bridge the differences that separate us? In this episode, I explore this very concept.
In the exclusive content section, Introspective, I apologize to Bungie for my opinion of Destiny. As much as I've maligned the game (even on this podcast), something changed that gave me a whole new perspective. Namely, I started playing Halo 5. Almost immediately, I could see that Destiny did something that no other game I've played has done with such fluidity and skill: game mechanics. It seems like such a simple concept, and yet Destiny has some of the best mechanics I have ever experienced. It begs the question of whether I've been too harsh on them or did I just need an overt comparison to realize how good it really is.
