Last CallLast CallLast Call is The Takeout’s online watering hole where you can chat, share recipes, and use the comment section as an open thread. Here’s what we’ve been reading/watching/listening around the office today.

Can you remember the last time your mind was truly blown? I remember that mouth-agape feeling when I experienced Google Earth for the first time. It was the idea I could fly from my Chicago apartment to my childhood home near Seattle, and see in stunning satellite imagery the tree I planted in our backyard.


I experience that same feeling of awe and wonder when I saw the trailer for Xbox’s forthcoming reboot of Microsoft Flight Simulator, the “game” that inspired wanderlust for a generation. Watching this is enough to make me plunk down $400 for an Xbox console whenever the game is released. Our friends at Kotaku has more from the E3 show in Los Angeles.

Kevin Pang was the founder and editor-in-chief of The Takeout, and director of the documentary For Grace on Netflix.
