Prospect

A brilliant sci-fi short film. You all know how I love free stuff and that I love science-fiction. This is both. And, it’s a film which debuted just recently at South by Southwest in Austin. It’s about prospectors on an alien planet, though exactly what they’re prospecting for is somewhat questionable. The risks they’re taking, […]

A Little Fantasy

No, not the naughty kind! Ugh, you perverts who immediately thought of something naughty should be ashamed of yourselves! Also? You are my people.

Now, don’t freak out.  It’s not entirely […]

This game is a little existential, but not in too challenging a way. I’ll be honest, I’m a bit beaten down this week. There’s been a lot. A lot of problems, a lot of work, a lot of everything. And, as a result, I’m just beat. Still, I have a link to share. It’s another […]

Universal Paperclips

An existentialist game about artificial intelligence and, yes, paperclips. A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine who read my post about the web-based game, Seedship told me about this fascinating and strangely compelling game, Universal Paperclips.
