There's no official box art for the new NES game "Lizard," so here's what I had to resort to instead

"More than 20 years ago, the psychologist Arthur Aron succeeded in making two strangers fall in love in his laboratory. Last summer, I applied his technique in my own life.

Love didn’t happen to us. We’re in love because we each made the choice to be."


She's been lying like this for ten minutes.

In the event that the Exercise Block does speak, the enrichment center urges you to disregard its advice.


There's nothing quite like fifteen years of IM logs to remind you that continuity of self is an illusion.

I would personally like to apologize for the antispam movement of the late 90s and early 00s. We did more harm than good.

Glittermitten Grove is $8 for ~10 more hours, if you're into that sort of thing.


I'm really enjoying Hitman but also really wishing it were about anything but murder.

I could be skulking around this mansion for *any* reason. I could be sneaking Christmas presents into the attic without my children noticing. I could be stealing from my parents' liquor cabinet.

This first-person vaporwave adventure game about weird internet culture is my favorite thing I saw at Indiecade. Two days left in the Kickstarter!


Can't-fail startup of the day: Wookiee-pattern baldness.

On studying Edgar Allen Poe: "The orangutan thing was a one of the biggest landmines in their field. It was a reliable discussion ruiner that had started so many shouting matches that some conferences had an actual ban on bringing it up."
