Quick shot for a rainy Thursday, a lightly edited conversation between myself and 'P', the soon to be taller than me kid and sound editor for the HR Happy Hour Show:
Setting - 'P' playing Grand Theft Auto IV. Me, doing something very important, surely.
Me - 'So are you good at this game?' (it is hard to tell, mostly it is just lots and lots of things blowing up and crashing, with some ancillary shootings, rocket launches, etc.)
P - 'Yeah, I am pretty good.'
Me - 'What would you say is the key to becoming good at this game?'
<Pause to think about it>
P - 'You can't be afraid to get your hands a little dirty'.
It's a jungle out there my friends.
