I hate first-person shooters. My character never has any peripheral vision and even when I can see my arms, I never have any sense of where the rest of my body is. So I invariably get caught on walking up stairs or end up running into a wall.
But if you’re an FPS fan, you might get a kick out of a couple of music videos by Russian indie punk band, Biting Elbows. Admittedly, I know very little about the band, other than that they formed in Moscow in 2008 and released an album and EP in 2011.

Most people call me Kenzie. I’m 9, in 3rd grade, and I’m getting straight A’s. I’ve always been the tallest person in my class and this year I’m actually taller than my teacher. I love computers, video games, apps, and role playing games – especially Magic the Gathering and Borderlands 2 that I get to play with my Dad (because my 15 & 16 year old brothers are too mean to play with me). But we do have D&D tournaments on the weekends which is cool. My favorite PS3 game right now is Dragon Age II.
