I'd love to say there's some clever joke about posting a game called 1 Time Never
for post 1111
, but I'll be damned if I'm intelligent enough for that kind of thing. Shear coincidence only I can assure you. Anyway...
Even though One Time Never doesn't find us trapped in a room with an Apple Mac that we inexplicably want to escape (are all these games' designers PC fans or something?), it still manages to be a point'n'click game, so you can dust down that left click button and get to it. It seems to get harder as you go, but I don't think I've got too far yet... shouts for help etc in the comments as usual.
The other day
I was checking out the flickr what's in your bag
thingumy which was oddly fascinating enough, but now I've just spent far too long playing around with the flash flickr tag browser
. Type in your search term and then browse through the board of postcards that are constructed for you in front of your eyes. Amazingly addictive. The screen grab above is from a search for 'laces' ('lazy' produced lots of pictures of sleeping cats). Fun for all the family...unless you search fo b00bies, which or course I would never
in the name of research
I've got this whole load of game links people have sent in that I should really be sorting though to post, but to be honest with you I've been too busy giggling inanely at Harold's Food Flinging Frenzy
. A knowledge of Australian soaps broadcast on British television is helpful to get the joke, but not essential to enjoy the fun. Oh my mis-spent university years come flooding back...
I don't know where I am...I don't know what I'm doing here...I just know I have to get out. Familiar Story? Connoisseurs of the point'n'click
are used to getting inexplicably trapped in rooms they desperately want to escape from by now, but that doesn't stop you does it? The Doors
sees you trapped in a room with lots of doors out (gettit?), if you're naive you might think one of them leads directly to the exit, but I'm afraid these things are never that simple my friend [thanks meme
is one of my favourite music videos ever, despite making only number 49 in a recent UK poll
, and what better way to celebrate the wonder that is Friday night by trying to dance like the be-hatted one. Actual insanity is sure to ensue...
The deceptively simple world of hapland
has been frustrating point'n'click
ers for a while now, but has been curiously missing from the world of lazylaces
. Now however this oversight has been rectified. That's your Thursday f**ked.
This was sent to me by a blond so it's okay to post it...[ta Hazel].
I have real trouble understanding American politics (unless The West Wing
is a documentary that is), hell I have trouble understanding British politics
and I live here. However this flash animation
made me chuckle and it was sent to me by a Yale
student (ta hannah
) so I'm sure it's spot on.
Strictly for the hardcore point'n'clicker
(well if you don't speak/read japanese anyway) swan's room
was causing a stir in the comments
so here it is in it's own right. Help from anyone who could translate the thing for us would be much appreciated...(btw - is it me or is there always a mac
in these rooms we get trapped in?).
I haven't really got into the flickr
thing yet although I've been following the buzz (hype?) on-line. However the what's in your bag
tag section is very appealing to your inner voyeur (what do you mean you
don't have one?). Especially as the flickr community is still at that stage in life where a high proportion of early adopters (ie. uber-geeks) are using the system so most of the bags are stuffed with gadgetry. Very
The bag in the pic isn't mine, just one I picked out at random, my bag is, most probably, sitting in the lost property office at Waterloo station, me having left it on the train in a rushing of the train quickly having just woken up and realised it was my stop moment. Should my bag not be there though I picked up on a couple of great US bag manufacturers that I haven't seen in the UK that could be the source of a good replacement. Timbuk2 and Tom Bihn especially might see me ordering on-line soon.
In The Rough
is an excellent animated short but be prepared for a long download. Worth the wait though.
Why am I linking to screensavers
that need a graphics cards so l33t to run that they brought my poor little Thinkpad
to it's knees when I tried them out? Well a good question to ask. But my dad
(centre left of pic) sent me the link and it's not everyday you get a link sent to you by your dad - so here it is. They look like they'd be really good if you have something better than an electronic etch-a-sketch under the hood of your PC.
