|Olympic... um... Games|
| Of all of the Olympic Mascot flashgames,|
recycling bin curling is the best.
(Although I like the music for Soaring Sumi).
| Play Canabalt|
Simple yet slick little game.
|Someone Will Torrent This|
| Photshop Express|
Photoshop as web application. Very basic stuff but might be nice to have online access in a pinch. I already miss not having a text tool.
|YAY FLASH GAMES YAY|
| I do not play many games but here are two flash games I read about recently at MetaFilter and am now pretty much in love with:|
Cursor 10 is a truly original, beautiful and downright exciting game - quick-witted, challenging, and ingenious. All you need to know: YOU HAVE 10 CURSORS. WORK TOGETHER. (not much replay value though.)
Shuffle is like curling or pool or shuffleboard, but with no walls, no nonsense, just balls and shootin' and your heart in yr mouth. Devilishly simple.
Santa came early this year in Vancouver. And he came in great numbers.
See more bizarre holiday fun in my Vancouver Santas photoset.
I'm not supposed to tell you that Santa has a Santacon website.
My advice to Santas for next year:
- If you show up at the first meeting point, do it 45 minutes later then advertised.
- Show up at the dinner-time meeting point if you're a night-time Santa.
- Pace yourself. In between giving out gifts, Santa mostly barcrawls.
- Plan to party with Santa all day and/or all night. It's a lot of fun.
- Bring some of your favorite Christmas spirits with you.
- Don't be Santa on an empty stomach.
- Bring your friends. The more the merrier.
Almost 1000 zombies rose from their graves to walk around Vancouver in search of tasty braaaaaaiiiins on Saturday. The most attractive targets were sightseeing buses, city buses, people who were smiling/laughing, and people in cars without a sense of humor (tee hee).
We did a circuit from the art gallery, past the fancy shops on Robson, over on Denman, through the heart of gaytown along Davie, past the club strip on Granville, through Sears, and back to the art gallery. It was wild!
I've published my Vancouver zombie walk photos. Some of my favorites are motorcycle zombies, zombie in a car (with pet dog), lurching through Sears, and the group shot included above. As usual, there's lots more interesting ones on flickr.
|Emergency Beirne Unit|
| I know that most readers of Sillytech are also readers of Said the Gramophone. Nonetheless, I highly recommend everybody check out today's post.|
Dan is reinventing everything ever.
|Psychedelic pattern generator|
| LineTo experimental is a simple yet awesome flash toy. Move your mouse around to create crazy psychedelic patterns. Click the buttons on the bottom to change some options. Try it out, it's fun.|
|Fun Little Game|
Takes just a few minutes but it's cute.
|Double Wires flash game|
| Double Wires is a fun flash game. Swing from the roof-tops using your wires for as far as you can. Actually they are more like blob-tops, but it's still cool.|
|Paint Ball - The Game|
| Here's an awesome flash game for you. It's called "Paint Ball", but it doesn't have anything to do with the shooting people paintball. Instead, it's just about painting lines upon which your ball bounces in order to get to the target. Fun!|
|Rollin', Rollin', Rollin|
| Cute flash clock|
|Flashmob + Consumer Power = Tuangou!|
| 500 people buying electronics flash mob a retailer to demand a group discount.|
|Bubble Love In Vancouver|
As a follow up to the pillow fight, today Vancouver's flashmobbers got together for some Bubble Love. It was raining this morning, and the art gallery steps were pretty deserted just a minute before 3. Things weren't looking that good. But then somebody started blowing their bubbles, and people kept coming and coming. Eventually bubbles filled the sky and it was glorious.
One of my favorite parts was seeing a passing suit stop and approach the bubbles with a big grin on his face. Hurray for random acts of whimsical beauty.
Here are all my bubblemob photos.
