In my heart of hearts ...
By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Tue Feb 12 2013 1:49 PM ]
I believe in love. Maybe not the love-is-all-you-need schtick, but, whether it’s romantic or platonic love, the humans (and animals) in our lives make a sometimes harsh and inhospitable world infinitely more bearable. Even when our hearts inevitably get broken, these patched-together metaphorical organs often function more wisely and, sometimes, even more fully. Love is the drug and—even with its troublesome side effects—it comes highly recommended. Meditate on the many-splendored thing while listening to my Valentine’s Day playlist, Heart Set, below. Heart-hug.

Music to Your Ears
By Samantha Anne Carrillo
Back to the Future
As countless sci-fi flicks illustrate, messing with the space-time continuum often leaves a traveler in a place they don't recognize as their desired destination. The Time Machine, Shoulder Voices' fourth full-length album, was catalyzed by Little Bobby Tucker's desire to move past a decade-old heartache.

Webgame Wednesday: One and One Story
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Feb 15 2012 2:35 PM ]
Sure, it's the day after Valentine's Day--but I like to think that the love continues. So allow me to introduce you to One and One Story, an absolutely lovely puzzle platformer with a romantic angle. You control a boy who wants to get to a girl. To accomplish this, you've got to traverse an obstacle-filled screen. Sometime she'll wait for you, sometimes she'll run away from you, sometimes she'll mirror your movements. Switch between the two characters to navigate the various traps. Pay attention to the various chapter titles, because they'll give you hints about what you'll be dealing with. This one will get your your heart beating and your mind racing.
