The Art of Minecraft

If you loved LEGOs as a child, you probably had this dream: A set of infinite bricks, in infinite colors, and an infinite space on which to build. This is the dream which Minecraft has been building since 2009. Although it has grown over the years to include more traditionally-oriented gaming modes, the core of the game is Creative Mode. Individuals, creative collectives, and even companies have been formed around the game. Vox looks at how this simple game of building blocks has become both an art and business.

    The Jennifer Lawrence- and Chris Pratt-helmed sci-fi film Passengers had a lot of hype but landed in theaters with a thud. Criticized for a too-predictable plot, the film felt by-the-numbers despite having an all-too-rare original screenplay.

As to whether Tenorman's parents are actually in Babish's chili, no one can say.
