360 degree breakout. Curiously this seems to make the game a lot harder.
Move the mouse and watch crazy patterns occur. How does this keep me entertained for so long?
The adventures of girl v pig. Or if you like something slightly darker try killer
News from New York with quite a nice laid back spin. The title seems a bit of a misnomer as there doesn't seem to be new news everyday - and I tend to read it in the afternoon just to add an anarchistic feel - but very engaging none-the-less. Also it is very far from having a subscribe thingumy which is what drives me nuts about the NYTimes
A great short on what I guess you could call lift surfing. Does this work irl? I'd love to know - but I feel that an express lift must be required - the lift at work is so slow it's almost quicker to walk.
I've been browsing a few photologs recently and perhaps I'll do something along the same lines when I get my new camera
. My particular favourite is a.lifeuncommon.org
and the sister photo site attached to this chicagouncommon.com
- especially as some of the recent posts are from a trip to London
and feature places just round the corner
from where I work everyday. Very inspiring and if I do a job even 1/10 as well when I get going I will be very proud. It does make me stop and think though that I pass ideal subjects everyday so I should never have any problem finding things to photograph - there are so many things around me I would like to record. Anyway I feel like I'm about to digress massively. As well as this photolog I really liked apparently nothing
which give a great outlook on somewhere else in the world. I liked seeing New York from a natives point of view especially - perhaps this year I'll finally go to the States.
The child in me was expected something a lot different from a game called Spank the Frank - but it turns out in it you are an elf and Frank is a penguin. You try and hit/spank Frank with a bat into a flying basket - in this Christmas themed game. Slighty cruel on elves though - which I guess explains who hired the hitman
to take out the elves
Party season is upon us and my updates for the site have gone slightly out of the window because of it. Oooops. Last week saw Christmas celebration #1 on Tuesday after work at The Charles Dickens
which saw much consumption of the Black Stuff
for me. So much so that it saw a long awaited first for me - falling fast asleep on the train - I didn't wake up until Alton
. Fortunately the kindly South West Trains staff popped me back to Farnham
since it was the last train of the night and that's where the train depot is. A quick lift home from Marcia and Emily and I got home in bed in time for 2am. Getting up at 6am for work was muchos fun.
Party #2 with the office was our proper do on Friday and the explanation for my uselessness at the weekend. Things once again kicked off in The Charles Dickens - more due to geographical convienience than any great attraction on it's part. We soon moved onto the Blackfriars wine-bar - which shockingly had very little in the way of beer - but plenty of wine. Sensibly we shunned wine in the wine bar - drinking beer - and moved onto wine in the restaurant - as well as Tequilla. Some superb Tapas later once again London was our oyster and we moved onto another pub before trying and failing to get further into the West End.
Anyway between struggling to get home and eating healthily Saturday was a bit of a right-off. And Sunday wasn't much better with a very tired vist to see the new James Bond film. I'm just about recovered now - but tomorrow sees another night out in SE1 - which means the next site update is looking very shakey indeed.
Classic flash game. Brilliant, although level 1 is suspiciously easy compared to the rest of the game.
The amazing Kenny translator. How do they do it? I think the real test would be to have a reverse translator as well, Kenny to English. If this is all too much destruction of the English language for you, you could always check out 10 ways to talk good
Earier this year I used to mail everyone with a 'Friday Game' to play, but since I went on holiday, and since I got so busy, I just haven't got round to it again. Anyway here's a welcome return of the Friday game with an absolute classic, Tempest. The only bad thing is that I haven't got one of those roller wheel things that the original used. Doh!
Found this link to a trailer for 'Johnny English' which looks kind of good; a sort of Bond meets Clouseau, with Rowen, Blackadder
, Atkinson starring. Hopefully it can live up to the promise, although Natalie Imbruglia is in it as well, which I can't decide will make it awful or excellent
One film I'm really looking forward to is The Quiet American, which stars the excellent Michael Caine, and more importantly is from the Graham Greene book of the same name. If only they would make a film of 'Our Man In Havana' that would be superb.
