Game of the Moment
Following up on yesterday's videogame with artistic pretension, it's Painstation, Pong with a masochistic (or sadistic) twist; every time you miss the ball your hand gets shocked, lashed, or heated, depending on what icon the ball hits. Loser is the person to take their hand off first. I think it says something artsy about our relationship to entertainment and technology, but I'm not sure what.

Update of the Moment
Starship Dimensons, linked to earlier this week, as a new URL and a new 2 meters per pixel page.

Quote of the Moment
Well, that's the end of the film. Now, here's the meaning of life. [opens envelope] M-hmm. Well, it's nothing very special. Uh, try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in, and try and live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.
For some reason this line popped into my head the other day, I guess I was thinking that I haven't been reading as much lately. I think it's a pretty good chunk of advice, really.
