Things have been a bit quiet on the posting front this week, and will continue to be so until after the weekend, as I've picked some paying work outside my regular work. This means that my free time is at a premium at the moment and I'm using it for such luxuries as sleeping
- I'm so decadent (I'll link to the project I'm working on when/if it goes live).
In the meantime try occupying your time by playing every orisinal game going which should take you a while. I love the cuteness of the orisinal games and thought I'd actually posted them ages ago but thanks to Swedish Sofia for bringing my posting omission to my attention - the best I'd managed was mentioning them in passing a couple of years ago. They have a style all of their own and are worth a visit even if you aren't a big gamer.
Also if you're looking to do some very time consuming point and click gaming try walking in circles which got quickly shunted down my home page due to a Friday posting fit but is well worth a puzzled play if you missed it the other day.
Final musical post for this Friday; chill out a little with the Kings Of Convenience
. Oh dear...another
album for me to buy.
Just for all you game freaks out there who couldn't give a monkey's about my musical Friday posts there's an update to one of my favourite on-line games, Javanoid
, with 26 new levels
. At one point this game consumed more development hours than actual development at my work. In case you can't work it out the game is a happy combination of java
and the classic game that is arkanoid
I travelled the world and the seven seas...sweet dreams
flash animated through a half hour dance intro, the full song and even after the music stops. Rave
a little bit on Friday you crazy cats. Big box, little box...etc.
Let's Rock! What lazylaces knows about rock music could quite happily be written on the back of a particularly small postage stamp (remember them?), but this is musical Friday and this flash animation
has spaceships and stuff as well as rock
so how could I resist? The music is quite possibly by slipknot
, but I'm clueless so don't rely on it.
Visual Aside: I'm trying to do that rock hand symbol thing where you curl up your fingers and stick your little finger and thumb out...in rock terms I am pathetic.
One for the master
....musical flash madness for a Friday.
The person who mailed the link to walking in circles
to me (thanks looby
) reckons this is a game and went so far to ask for help as she hadn't "got passed the third girl". I must be losing my point'n'click
touch though as I haven't managed to find anything that seems like a game in it yet. To me it seems like a, albeit rather nice, little flash exploring oddity. However I know some of you are demons at these things so I challenge you to unleash hell on the thing and let me know what's going on with it. Mystery solving in the comments
Find out what you've been doing with your life
in flash format.
See some of the natural world whilst you're cooped up at your 'puter with these fine wallpapers
. Bonus kudos points for anyone who can identify all the homestarrunner
characters hiding in the foliage on my desktop from the mini-pic above.
The gameplay isn't fantastic in bird
, but the music and animation are bonkers which always gets my vote. Control bird by moving your mouse and hunt everywhere you pass to find the worm in less than 60 seconds.
A bit late, or very early, for a musical Friday post, but I've just discovered (and downloaded) Wire Daisies
who I'll make an exception for as a). They sound great, b). They're from the greatest county in the UK - Cornwall
(the fact that I was born there doesn't influence my opinion on this one at all). Pop over and have a listen - some great tunes for a Sunday evening.
