The future is already here. It's just unevenly distributed.

One of the things that I think is really missing around here is game reviews and game discussion. A big part of ‘our’ culture is games. Board games, card games, word games, mind games… Love of games seems to go hand in hand with having a few extra brain cells to rub together, so I’m going to make a play for the wire here and assume that this crowd likes them too. Every now and again I’ll drop a review of a game into the rotation of updates that I do to see if there is enough interest to make it an ongoing topic.

Little Known Facts: The Wilhelm Scream

I've been seeing references to "the Wilhelm scream" all over the place recently, and I'd thought that it referred to the shreiks uttered by Kate Capshaw's (Mrs. Steven Speilberg) character Willie from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom


Turns out I was wrong.  It's actually a sound effect whose first documented use by Warner Brothers was in a movie called  The Charge at Feather River, made in 1953, and has since gone on to become an in-joke among sound effects designers.

Training For The Apocalypse: Jedi Academy

For those of you who just can't get enough of Jedi swordfighting, and have $410 to blow--and live in New York City--there's a dojo that teaches wanna-be Jedi masters how to use a lightsaber.


The tuition is $10.  The other $400 is for the laser sword.
