Just released today. Can't wait for their album to come out Sept 11...
I’m starting to think we’re a lot alike. Human beings spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention to.
I remember reading an old interview with a top Starcraft ladder player (Zileas) and he said that one key part of him getting to be #1 on the ladder was being part of a group of friends who were all very good themselves and who played regularly. The social aspects make it fun and motivating in a way that would be much harder if you were to decide to just sit down and spend months or years getting good at something alone. In my case I remember people being disappointed when I would skip a match because they wouldn't be able to talk through the problems afterward.
"In the province of connected minds, what the network believes to be true, either is true or becomes true within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the network's mind there are no limits."

Patrick Stewart: Picard's character deeply influenced by kings, emperors, and tragic heroes of Shakespeare
The fact is all of those years in Royal Shakespeare Company – playing all those kings, emperors, princes and tragic heroes – were nothing but preparation for sitting in the captain's chair of the Enterprise.
As I rewatch Star Trek: The Next Generation, it blows me away how much my beliefs and values were actually formed and shaped going home every day after school and watching an hour of TNG during formative years. Picard ended up being a primary role model for what I believed leaders should be.
Of course, it's natural that the source of Picard's portrayals came from a much deeper tradition of kings and emperors from Shakespeare. Art does imitate life, and vice versa.
