Carbonara, Proteus and Donald Duck

I’ve been working too hard to have the time for a proper update, so tonight I’m posting some links. But I’m also working on getting the remaining Compendium images posted (in the mail and on this blog). I’m very sorry for taking so long, but I try very hard to make each entry really unique and meaningful, and lately the combination of work and sickness has slowed my progress.

Anyway. Links!

  • Would you like to see some spaghetti carbonara… in a cube?
  • Proteus is available for preorder! In case you haven’t heard of it, Proteus is a completely goalless exploration game with a strong musical element. I’ve played it (thanks to my nefarious connections to the indie scene) and it’s simply magnificent. An experience that no modern commercial game can match.
  • This Donald Duck short was legendary in my family. I really need to show it to my father when I get the chance. Seeing it again after nearly twenty years was strangely moving. (It’s also good to know that it’s still as funny as I remembered it being.)

That’s it. Oh, and the Oscars really sucked this year. I was looking forward to Billy Crystal hosting the show again, but I was under the impression that he was still alive.

  1. I never pay attention to the Oscars. I did see a tweet last night from somebody butthurt about Harry Potter not winning and Oscar. You know why it didn’t win? BECAUSE IT PROBABLY SUCKED! Especially considering that they had to split the last book into two movies, which indicates filler. Was the book even that long?!

  2. It was that long, but the movies have been shit ever since the fourth one. They’re lacking everything that matters about the books.

    Funny, I didn’t think you were the kind of guy that enjoyed Harry Potter. Strange.
    Anyway, I recently watched a wonderful and weird little film called The Fall, and I recomend it to anyone who hasn’t heard of it. It really is something. And you have to love that kid.

  4. I adore the Potter books and have debated people at length about their literary quality (which I consider to be very high). And I’ll second that recommendation – The Fall is an awe-inspiring movie.
