Although this happened a while ago, I fell into an Ediacaran biota black hole for a good several days. Ediacaran biota are extinct multicellular organisms from before the Cambrian explosion, from about 635 to 541 million years ago. They are just so fantastically bizarre, with some of them possibly not belonging to any of the kingdoms of life that exist today (animals, plants, fungi, etc). I read whatever I could find about them and watched what few documentaries there are about them.
For a milder and more recent example, I’ve been looking up a bunchy of fanart of My Hero Academia ships and learning the portmanteau names fans have given them.
Before listening to the episode, I almost wrote a comment about falling into a Tomb Raider black hole and how I ended up playing a bunch of them.
My non-gaming black hole, however, would have to be Thai boys-love TV shows. (There are about a million of them for some reason.) The first one I watched was actually really good (if twice longer than it should have been). The other ones I tried were universally terrible, and I could not watch more than 10 minutes of any of them.
World of Warcraft used to be my black hole. In the past few months, I have escaped it by falling down a different black hole.
I’ve been writing a fantasy novel. I finished the rough draft, and I’m working on polishing it into something that’s as worthy of other people’s reading time as I can make it. My goal is to turn it into a very cheap or free ebook, once the final draft is ready.
I’m late to the party, but I got really hooked on The Good Place and have tore through all four seasons recently
