RECOMMEND T-REX TO... THE INTERNET:
What are the haps my friends


September 18th, 2008: A bunch of people reminded me of the Most Wanted and Most Unwanted Song, which is hilarious and which you can listen to here. It's amazing how this song goes around every few months: it was put online in June 1997, and I'm sure you can use it as a baseline for how often people forget something online. Anyway I'd forgotten it too despite linking to it myself in January so there you have it: Ryan Can't Remember Stuff Sometimes. The Unwanted Song is highly recommended!

I also came across Farbs.org through my own Project Wonderful and it is fantastic. This guy has put up three of his own indie games and I really recommend ROM CHECK FAIL: it's a game that melds Mario with Zelda with Pac Man with Space Invaders with - well, tons of other games. The basic gameplay is that every five seconds, the tile set, main character, enemies and music are randomly swapped with another classic game. At first it's just fun for the crazy combinations, but then the gameplay deepens when you realize you have about 3 seconds to attack and then 1 second for defence, because you don't know what you'll swap into next. You may be Pac-Man about to eat blue ghosts, when suddenly you're Mario and they're Gauntlet ghosts coming in from above and you are totally pooched. Original and fun and I can beat it but only once!


YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?
