I shall call it Cletus.

I have a photograph in the November issue of Seattle Metropolitan ("I Shall Call It Cletus") of Jonathan Macken, a hardcore gamer that took vacation time from work to coincide with the release of the revolutionary/evolutionary computer game Spore. Although his work hiatus ended a bit earlier than he would have liked, I was still able to spend a bit of time with Macken, observing his progress/process at a game described as "Sim everything," including this time-lapse sequence of two-and-a-half days of play that may as well be a Coke Zero advertisement.

Thanks to Macken and writer Emily White, as well as Seattle Met's Chris MacManus.
