Country Life
A sweet little advert that's currently playing on UK television - which is all about exploiting cheap animal labour to help you with your household chores....hang on, did I 'sweet little advert'. I meant 'cruel and evil advert', that should have the animal rights protestors pulling it off screen as soon as possible.

Who set up a fun-fair next to your house while you were trying to sleep? Will a bit of point'n'clickery help to stop the noise and let you get some sleep? I've only just got outside and into the fair so far, but that's quite a nice challenge in itself. I'm liking this adventure [subbed by eb].

Rock Tha House
Rock Tha House - a point'n'bling adventure [thanks nancy].

Sal Del Cuarto
No sound, and I don't understand the text, but stuff it, it's great to be trying to point'n'click my way out of a room again in Sal Del Cuarto [subbed by linda].

Lost On The Edge
This week I have mainly been listening to the beautiful "Edge Hill" by Groove Armada - I'm only sorry I can't find a decent copy to link to for you to listen to (ask me sweetly by e-mail and I might send you a copy). If you are in the UK though, and this is the reason I've been listening to this quality track again, it's the music on the Channel 4 trailer for Lost - which has finally made it to UK shores so I now know, and love, what all the fuss is about. I must replay I Am Lost sometime - I didn't fully understand the whole thing at the time, but it all becomes clear now.

PS. If you are American and are a whole season ahead of me on this one I really don't want to know (I'm assuming you know by now) what the monster in the jungle is.

PPS. As always please let me know, and link to, what you are listening to this week, and for this week only your opinions on Lost would be interesting to hear too.

Daisy Duke Dances
Make Jessica Simpson, as Daisy Duke, dance to the movement of your mouse in this link that is possibly slightly out of character for lazylaces. Yes I know I normally post musical links on a Friday and this is, of all things, a music video with no sound, I know I don't normally post stuff that is NSFW, and this has a soapy girl in a bikini writhing around, but I just know that this will make my work colleague Marc's Friday - and possibly distract him from the fact that I haven't assigned anybody to do any development on his projects.

The House
Ok - I'm filing The House under games, I might even go so far as to file it under point'n'click, but really it's very easy to progress with the thing, and as a game it's super easy. I'm still a big fan though, and the reason is atmosphere. This thing has it by the bucket-load. My top tips are:
  1. Play late at night
  2. Alone
  3. Lights off
  4. Sound up.
  5. Spare underwear to hand
The only bad thing is the absolutely phenomenal load time for each 'level'. What exactly it's loading is a mystery, it's good, but certainly doesn't match up in size to what you think you're going to get considering how long you have waited. That said - it is worth it. Enjoy.

Clever Waste Of Time
A Clever Waste Of Time is another one of those puzzle game things that attempts to get your lazy brain ticking over with puzzles that require more brain power than a standard point'n'click (allegedly). This one is very much like Star Wars, except you have to "view the source", rather than "feel the force". (oh, how long did I take thinking up that little pun?) [subbed by Anna].

WARNING: Please please please don't post spoilers for CWOT - hints are fine - but giving away solutions is against the spirit (and rules) of the game. I've been asked by the folks over at CWOT to reitterate this point, and it's also worth noting they are reading the comment thread for this post and have the power to ban you from the site! I don't normally ask much of you guys so please just humour me on this one.

Graeme Needs Coffee
As the continuing saga of the broken coffee machine at work enters it's 2nd week, I'm starting to feel the effects even with frequent mercy runs to the coffee shop across the road. Meanwhile my colleagues think it's funny to taunt me with Dilbert cartoons like this (click on the pic for the full thing).

La Luna Hotel
In La Luna Hotel you wake-up in a hotel room somewhere, not remembering how you got there. So-far, sooo point'n'click, but this is new: you wake up wearing zebra stripped, faux fur, boxer shorts. Just a regular day then... hmmmm, itchy [subbed by Anna].
