Eternal Sunshine
This freakish music video is a clever way to get the characters from the film you're the soundtrack for to sing your song for you, but I especially like the cute touches of the singing house and dancing radio. Now I really want to watch The Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind and hear more from the Polyphonic Spree (even more than when I played The Quest For the Rest).

If you want your Windoze XP install 'just so' then you can't beat Tweak XP for some top tweaking tips on how to go about it. I've now removed the annoying little shortcut arrow from my desktop shortcuts which has let me admire the beauty of my homestarrunner iconset. Tweaktastic.

First things first - don't even bother clicking on this game until it's dark in whatever time-zone you're in. Also I recommend waiting until you're on your own, and preferably you should crank the sound up too. Having spare underpants to hand is also advisable if you are of a nervous disposition. That's the prerequisites over and done with on with the game...

I was a bit dubious at first whether exmortis even was a point'n'click game, it seemed like a simple, if very spooky, flash toy with no real purpose, until I found the locked safe and figured there must be something more going on than I realised at first. Even now (I haven't completed the game), I'm not totally sure what the eventual goal is, but a little point'n'click experience has taught me that it's almost certainly to escape the house (express solution: don't enter the house at the begining and walk away while you can!).

So far I've reached the library (pictured) and figured out that I need to collect some symbols - I don't think I have them all. Post hints, and ask for help, in the comments to this post, but for now I'm off to bed (to have nightmares) and I'll be trying to complete this one in the morning. [hosted at newgrounds].

PS. Ultra-simple first hurdle hint: click 'play this game' on the newgrounds page to play this game!

Halcyon Hours
Some chilled out tunes and chilled out flash with halcyon hours - the perfect calm down site between gaming sessions (minimal clicking required). I especially like it as it features the obscure Mazzy Star who I love and it reminded me of one of my all time favourite tracks - Halcyon by Orbital.

The House
Another day, another point'n'click game. And you thought Monday was going to be boring? Anode Et Cathode the same people who brought you Le Bureau now bring you The House (La Maison?). This one looks harder than Le Bureau, and I haven't got very far with it in the 5 minutes I had to tinker with it, hopefully I'll complete it tonight after work, by which time I'm sure a whole walkthru will have been posted in the comments for this post (go on guys'n'gals).

Update: Due to a server outage at work I actually got this one completed in the morning, and thanks to all the comments posted now there's probably a complete walkthru if you want to trawl thru for help.

The Blue Chamber
If you haven't pirated the password paid the yen to play it yet I highly recommend playing the blue chamber, another room escaping installment from the makers of the crimson room and the viridian room, which is now out to play (ethically) for free.

The Lazylaces Issue
Did I ever tell you about the time I was on the front cover of Elle? Oh, how the ladies' magazines like an eligible bachelor [ta hp].

Rendezvous With Candycracker
Nice flash, twisted story, with candycracker.

Here in the UK we all learn metric meaures at school (even an oldster like me did), but we like to mix things up a little by sticking to imperial weights and measures irl. The beeb have a nice article today with view-points from both imperial and metric camps, along with, as always, entertaining comments from the public which make interesting reading. Personally I'm all for going metric, but having said that I'll always order a 'pint' rather than a half litre (even if the second is bigger).

PADI Sky Diver
Scuba gear, an axe, a paddling pool and some skyscraper rooftops: all the right ingredients for a little game of 'sky-diving'.

The Water Cube
Just as one Olympics ends you start seeing droolworthy graphics of the venue for the the next one. "The Water Cube will be one of the most dramatic and exciting venues to feature sporting events for the Beijing Olympics in 2008". Very cool, although I can't quite work out if the walls will be filled with water, or just made to look like they will. Nice either way if the animation is anything to go by.
