“When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

― C.S. Lewis
Who I Follow
But if these years have taught me anything it is this: you can never run away. Not ever. The only way out is in.

And Here is the list of all the artists who contributed!

For myself, I cannot live without my art. But I have never placed it above everything. If, on the other hand, I need it, it is because it cannot be separated from my fellow men, and it allows me to live, such as I am, on one level with them. It is a means of stirring the greatest number of people by offering them a privileged picture of common joys and sufferings. It obliges the artist not to keep himself apart; it subjects him to the most humble and the most universal truth. And often he who has chosen the fate of the artist because he felt himself to be different soon realizes that he can maintain neither his art nor his difference unless he admits that he is like the others. The artist forges himself to the others, midway between the beauty he cannot do without and the community he cannot tear himself away from. That is why true artists scorn nothing: they are obliged to understand rather than to judge. And if they have to take sides in this world, they can perhaps side only with that society in which, according to Nietzsche’s great words, not the judge but the creator will rule, whether he be a worker or an intellectual.

Legend of Zelda Monopoly Out Next Month

I was just as surprised as you to find out that they hadn’t made a Zelda Monopoly yet. Better late than never! The game will feature:

  • 6 metal tokens: Hylian Shield, Triforce, Slingshot, Boomerang, Hookshot and Bow
  • Sculpted Deku Sprouts and Deku Trees replace traditional Houses & Hotels
  • Custom designed game board features locations in Hyrule

An excellent set, but I think there should be at least one Gerudo artifact for those of us that root for/like to play as the bad guy.

Will this be replacing your Monopoly board? Legend of Zelda Monopoly Edition will be out Sept. 15. [❤]

Preorder: Zelda Monopoly, Zelda Necklace Set
