The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #343: Platformer

03.16.16

One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives for movement and action, their relations,
their work and leisure activities, and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the
encounters they find there.

It's a bike ride.

Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.

It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm at California Donuts #21.
We ride at 9pm.

On the seventh year of this bike ride, you might expect:
- more inconvenient passageways
- more full moon picnics
- perhaps more "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- certainly more amateurish enthusiasm
- disorientation
- reorientation
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- dance parties
- karaoke
- imaginary histories
- scavenging for fun and sustenance
- more geocaching
- more oblique strategies
- more Oulipian constraints
- traffic median tea parties

Furthermore:
- A medium pace (maybe not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- We're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light.
- Maybe some distance;maybe some hills
- Victory donuts!

This week:

Platformer



It's an old-fashioned kind of game, to be sure--getting from one platform to the next, collecting the prizes,
finding the exits--but it still has its charms. Even if the genre has suffered a bit of a slump in the era of 3-D
doodads and whatsits, there is some staying power in simplicity.

Take tonight's ride, for instance: unusually linear in form, perhaps a bit repetitive, nary a bell nor whistle to be
found, but rather enjoyable nevertheless. The prizes are the same as ever, of course, but surely, after all that
platforming, victory will never have tasted so sweet.

(30 miles; pretty flat; several stairways; no boss battles that we know of)
