Heaven
In the webcomic xkcd, a new version of Tetris was imagined as Heaven. The internet quickly agreed, and a real-life version of the comic was created. Play Heaven for yourself. It's awesome.

Fox Time

Ah, internet, is there no dusty corner of trivia that you can't convert into a site? Take, for example, the exhaustive collection of screen grabs that make up the self-explanatory Fox Mulder's Wristwatch.

I had that dream again last night... this time we were in the Himalayas.

Learning Music, One Album at a Time

Liz was 22 when she decided to listen to all the albums listed in a book on her shelf. At the time, she had 67 songs on her iPod. The book was 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. So she's reviewing them, one a day. It may take you a while to catch up to where she is now, and she won't finish until May 2012, but it's refreshing to read honest album reviews from someone who's not pretentious about music. See for yourself at 1001 Albums.

Hack Slash Crawl
Sure, it's your basic dungeon crawler, but it's easy and fun, and you'll find yourself looking for more loot. You may have to experiment a bit to find a character that works for you. But be careful, you only have one life to live (at least initially) while exploring the levels of Hack Slash Crawl.

Movies by the Colors

If you take a movie and compress it into its component colors that make up the on-screen palette, then you have Movie Barcode. The movie titles are underneath the "barcodes".

It's interesting that he offers prints, because they really are cool enough to hang on your wall. Check the index for your favorite(s).

Not Your Momma's Android

Android smartphones are really taking off, and partially because the Android OS is open source. Geeks love that openness and the configurability that comes with it. However, sometimes geeks go overboard, and since they're not usually arbiters of fashion or good taste, it can lead to tasteless implementations of the user interface. See the mocking at Fugly Android.

Space is Key
This fast-paced game will have you mashing your spacebar, trying to advance through each 3-tiered level. Sometimes it takes a number of retries to get the hang of each level, but there's no penalty, only constant action in Space is Key.

Vegan Taxidermy

Yeah, I know, I was skeptical at first. How can you do taxidermy without actual animal parts. Well, it turns out it's more animal scuplture using other materials, but it's still amazing (and amusing) to browse Vegan Taxidermy.

Jorinapeka
It's a weird puzzle game that takes a few tries to get the hang of, but before long, you're planning out the movement to clear the colored tiles off the board. The name is as crazy as the game. It's Jorinapeka.
