Bioshock Infinite ultimately dismisses Daisy and her outrage by painting her actions as monstrous. At the revolution’s climax, Daisy corners Fink, the man who is not only depicted as controlling the working class in Infinite, but was personally responsible for Daisy’s torture in the book. After shooting him point blank, she looks straight at Booker- at the player- and smears Fink’s blood across her face like a badge of honor. In addition to Fink’s borderline satirical stance on worker’s rights, the novella adds a dose of personal stakes to Fink’s killing. Thus, in a story dictated by violence and debts, he had it coming. If this were Daisy’s game, Fink would be her third act boss. “Achievement unlocked: revenge is a dish best served cold.” However, what should be read as an act of triumph for a sympathetic Daisy instead marks her descent into infamy. In killing Fink, she becomes the villain from Comstock’s scripture. But how do Daisy’s actions really differ from our own? The only way we as players engage with the world of Bioshock is through violence. For the most part it is the only way to solve any kind of problem in the game. To get from point A to point B we tear through room after room of faceless goons under the flimsy pretense of “wiping away the debt”- and it’s a debt we don’t even understand until the endgame. As players we’re even rewarded for the violence we commit with both story progression and non-diegetic trophies or achievements. By contrast, we know Daisy’s motivations. If anything, we have seen why a revolution is needed through the horrific displays of inequality and violence that permeate Columbia. However, when Daisy resorts to violence to solve her problems, and claim her trophy, she is disproportionally branded monstrous compared to the carnage we as players have left in our wake.

Scientists discover most relaxing tune ever

Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.

Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.

Dr David Lewis, one of the UK’s leading stress specialists said: “‘Weightless’ induced the greatest relaxation – higher than any of the other music tested. Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions.”

The study - commissioned by bubble bath and shower gel firm Radox Spa - found the song was even more relaxing than a massage, walk or cup of tea. So relaxing is the tune, apparently, that people are being Rex advised against listening to it while driving.

The top 10 most relaxing tunes were: 1. Marconi Union - Weightless 2. Airstream - Electra 3. DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix) 4. Enya - Watermark 5. Coldplay - Strawberry Swing 6. Barcelona - Please Don’t Go 7. All Saints - Pure Shores 8. AdelevSomeone Like You 9. Mozart - Canzonetta Sull’aria 10. Cafe Del Mar - We Can Fly

my muscles stopped functioning 

I was so relieved this wasn’t a trick. Very soothing.

THIS IS IT, GUYS. This is the song I listen to when I’m feel a panic attack coming on or can’t sleep because of my anxiety. It has helped me more times than I can say.

see i’ve come to b u r n your kingdom down

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.
