I. Stephen Tobolowski may have indirectly inspired the Radiohead band name.

It's awesome that this is a real comic.

Things I don't like to hear people say...

1)  I don't like Radiohead.  They are too depressing.

2)  The Jade Helm excercise will result in the internment of US citizens in tunnels underneath walmart stores.  Obama will then be able to establish his Islamic caliphate.

Actually there aren't that many things I don't like to hear people say.  I do understand the concerns of the right wingers though.  Their fear is just misdirected, and they're kind of going crazy.

Here's the screen where you pick your 'tuff' in Bad Blood, fabled Origin systems adventure game from the early 90s.

Things I like to hear people say...

1)  Those are some choice meats/warez/skiiz.  You should hit that.

2)  Kev, I posted some new tracks on soundcloud.  My name is CyrusFx [could be anyone else too].

3)  America still has a leg up on the rest of the world when it comes to quality cinema production.

4)  I think Radiohead is still riding high.

5)  Man Kev, those are some deftly executed arpeggio transitions.

6)  Obama has actually done extremely well for us.

Here's a pic from famed 90s Street Fighter clone, 'Violent Fighter'.

This is actually an MRI image of my upper torso and head. At this one particular depth slice, it looks like some kind of supremely evil tor/slor.

Roll against some stat minus something.  The details don't matter much.  If you roll low, you do well.  And there are always guns available somewhere nearby.

This is a parody of the film Whiplash.  It might not be too entertaining if you haven't seen that movie but thats chill yo.

The next-gen procedurally generated universe exploration games are finally starting to arrive...

Click on the picture above for a good article. This is the type of game that we always discussed in our younger years. I think the difficult thing will be to find the right mixture between the exploration of the randomness and some kind of structured game play.

Here are some more upcoming games in the same vein, although these seem to focus less on planetary activity, and more on space:

The home of all things Thom Yorke-related


http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/news/general_music_news/radiohead_frontman_featured_on_cover_of_iranian_book_about_sex_problems.html

An image of Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has turned up in the unlikeliest of places - the cover of an Iranian book about sex and marital problems.

As NME reports, Yorke graced the front sleeve of the book along with pictures of two other unidentified men. Apparently, the book's title translates in English to "Marital and Sexual Problems in Men."

A Twitter user called @Mehr_DaD states that he found the book "about three years ago at [his] uncle's bookstore located in Mashhad, Iran." Apparently, Yorke's appearance on the book's cover does not relate to the book's content.
