Addicting Games

Recently I’ve found two very addicting games.

The first is a tycoon-style game called Corporation Inc. The goal: build up a corporation from the ground up. It was quite fun, although it got a little monotonous in the end when it was just really waiting around. Check it out for yourself: http://www.addictinggames.com/corporation-inc-game.html.
I only built up the 18th floor, but still made over a billion dollars in 45 days. Not a bad profit at all. If only it were the real world.

The second game I’ve found doesn’t exactly have a name. It’s fun nevertheless: http://wonderfl.net/c/tNGi/fullscreen?lol. Think of it like brick breaker, but with chain reactions. Can you sustain the chain reaction long enough to clear the screen?

Music: Holiday, Love is Noise, & More

So it’s been a while. Even though I wanted to post every week, that hasn’t worked out. We’ll see what happens in the future.

Anyway, here’s some music I’ve discovered and re-discovered these past few weeks:

Although I also like the instrumental version of the song:

New Years, DIY Gastric Bypass, Glasses Free 3D, & More

I’m just going to come out and say it. I LOVE FIREWORKS! Which is one reason why I love New Years Eve so much. Every year I look to two cities for NYE fireworks: London and Sydney.

Between the two, I always thought Sydney’s were the best, just because of the scale, length of the show, choreography to music, and sheer amount of fireworks. But this year, London stepped it up a notch (and Sydney seemed to fall). For the 2010/11 NYE, I think London takes the cake for an amazing show. I’ve been scouring the internet trying to find an HD version of the display, but all I can find is 480p. Even in SD, though, the display is amazing:

How Musical Are You?

I recently found this BBC test on musicality. I’m not sure how accurate it is, but it was fun to take. I’d recommend taking it just for fun.

Here are my results:

I’m Back!

Well, I was never gone, I just wasn’t posting. I’ve made up my mind, though, and I’m going to try to post more often, at least once a week. Most likely I’ll post a compilation of videos, music, and stories that I’ve found interesting throughout the week.

Along with my return is a new blog theme!
