Something for the weekend

Turned out I was too busy not procrastinating (mostly) to procrastinate this afternoon. Still, here are some links anyway – who knows, it might be a wet weekend.

YouTube

Happily, despite cancellation, Futurama lives on. Here’s a clip from the latest DVD release.

A robot band – the inevitable destination of electronic music?

Games

First, I should apologise for linking to Dino Run last week – truly, hideously addictive. So much so that when it inexplicably lost the dinosaur I’d finally got up to maximum ability levels, I found myself feeling not so much angry as oddly and suddenly free.

Then again, if that all sounds more like a recommendation to you, here are the rest of Pixeljam’s neo-retro time-stealers:

RatMaze – find cheese in a maze, as quickly as you can.

RatMaze 2 – find much, much more cheese, much, much more quickly. With puzzles this time, too.

Gamma Bros – not the Mario clone I expected, but a nostalgia inducing shoot-em-up. I sense addiction looming again…

No, I don’t know why you would either, but someone evidently thought it was a good idea.
