I think PoA is also the book where Rowling really finds HER writing voice as opposed to plucking from the styles of folks like Roald Dahl in the first two novels.
For what it’s worth, I got the switch last week on a random sale at $240 despite definitely not needing another console, but I feel like it’s already falling into its own niche, separate from what my PS4 and PC do as game machines. Maybe it’s just because I played Zelda, a huge AAA console game, in the bathroom, but…
Nothing. Nothing truly becomes a thing until I experience and enjoy it. Before that it’s nothing but potential that the idiot masses are gobbling up in an attempt to stay ahead of the curve, but they’re just prospecting. I decide when something matters.

I love that he included in “protected minority groups” in his list of grievances. Says it all.

Whereas I’m thinking of that old Onion article “Dumb kid chokes and ruins awesome toy for everyone”, because I love my movie theater footrests.

See? SEE?! This is what I fucking mean. Just comment on the topic of the goddamn story, not remind everyone of how progressive and socially fucking aware you are AGAIN. Honestly, are you a bot? No one’s interested. No one cares. It’s not getting you any likes. It’s not going to get you laid.
