mad video game world


via boingboinb -- classic video game deaths.

In classic video games, as in real life, death is generally inevitable, which is part of why this manages a certain poignancy...
The function of the artist is to make people like life better than they have before.

Honestly a mediocre honest to goodness attempt at a prank geek news piece would be better than another post about how bad April 1 stuff is.
What if the worst is true? What if there's no God, and you only go around once and that's it? Well, you know, don't you want to be part of the experience?

I love the term "oontz" for that genre music. Super-impressive onomatopoeia.
Now I'm 37. Unfortunately my only numerological reference for this age is a raunchy-ish bit from "Clerks".
Diane points out that 37 is a nice prime number. (The only one between 31 and 41...)
