Jesper‘s got three weeks left of his PhD grant and is in that zone where everything is connected, and even procrastination is weirdly productive:

[Playing Virtua Tennis] was meant to be a pure waste of time, but Iíve already written about how Virtua Tennis is a stylized simulation of real tennis in that many aspects of the real sport have been removed: You canít leave the court; the player automatically positions himself for a smash. And is it cheating to quit a game in career mode if itís not going well or should you play it to the end?

I remember that! Not the tennis game as such, but everything linking up, the glow of it, the insanity of how everything, no, really, everything, becomes relevant to what you’re writing.
