Let's Make Rabbits

(no subject)

What a music video.. grim, touching, an animated tale of jealousy and redemption: Kashmir - "Rocket Brothers".

They'd better have an adult version of this voice-changing Cyberman mask available. Still, it does say 1:1 scale, and I didn't see any Cyberrugrats. (But who knew Cybermen required three AA cells?)

Dork is a fun 2D puzzle game, vaguely a kind of ladders & levels game. You play a bug that can hop around the screen - but hopping from one place to another is all it can do, no other movement. Yes, the control is the mouse button - and nothing else. ^_^ Currently available for OS X and Windows, with x86 Linux coming soon. Free demo levels, $5.50 or $9.50 for additional levels.

There's been a reaction from Six Apart on the LJ/Vox concerns, including a request for clarification of users' ages: 'Go to the profile page and specify your full date of birth, including your year of birth. If you don't want everyone to see how old you are, make sure the box that says "show your birthday to other users" is unchecked.'

El Reg notes the UK Mobile Phone Throwing championship, taking place on Aug 20: "the UK records, set at last year's event, are 69.31m for the men and 38.74m for the women. Both fall short of the world records, set in Finland, where handsets were hauled 94.97m and 41.42m, respectively."
