The Daily Word in Albuquerque laser strikes, the fake Bigfoot and the real (crying) Shia LeBeouf
By Ty Bannerman [ Wed Feb 12 2014 8:31 AM ]
Finally, all the journalism about the greatest rags-
Bueno Foods has announced a recall of its frozen green chile. Thousands of journalists struggle to not type the words "no bueno" into their headlines. Some fail.
After three years of clockwork freak-outs about it, the House quietly raised the debt ceiling "without condition" last night. Somehow, the world still hasn't ended.
Hey Albuquerque! Stop pointing laser beams at airplanes! It's all fun and games until you blind a pilot and they crash into the Simms Building.
Shia LaBeouf's new hobby is sitting in a dark room with a bag over his head, crying with strangers.

Guts of Glory
By Ty Bannerman [ Thu Sep 6 2012 12:24 PM ]
Now here's a guy who is combining three of my favorite things: post-apocalyptic wastelands, eating, and board games (I’m eclectic, what can I say?). And yes, the result looks like it's completely gross, insane and really fun. The game features "chewing" and "spewing" mechanics and a variety of radioactive comestibles, ranging from indestructible twinkies to the very worrisome "vitamin Z", for players to ingest in order to earn “glory cards”. Pretty great art, too.
Pledge to his kickstarter and get a print and play copy of the game for as little as $5, or a retail copy for $25. Or if you’ve got money to burn, go all out and pledge $1500 and be immortalized in the game as a chewable, spewable card. You’l be the envy of all your friends.

Webgame Wednesday: Chuck the Sheep
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Nov 23 2011 4:58 PM ]
Holiday-themed Flash games are uniformly awful. And Thanksgiving-themed games are the worst of the lot. So Armor Games did us a favor when they took their already-entertaining Chuck the Sheep and dressed ol’ Chuck up in a turkey suit for Thanksgiving. You play Chuck, a sheep (or a turkey, I guess), who’s trying to escape the farm in some sort of homemade catapult/rocket. Launch yourself out of the barnyard and try to get as far as possible. Get a move on! You’re about to be sheared. Or served up for Thanksgiving dinner. One or the other. Or both. I'm kinda confused.
