So it’s been a month in which lots has gone on with a new baby in the house and I’ve had a chance to collect more than my fair share of links that may or may not interest, astound and amaze you, so, you know, watch out! Links to follow!
I remember Name Lastname — he was one of my favorite Vikings linemen ever.
Cats in zero G = Spinning Corkscrews Of Claw-Filled Death:
By way of Philly Future, we have word of Geekadelphia, your Philly-local source for all things geeky.

Speaking of “more X than sense”, how about the self-justifying story of a mother whose actions led to the suicide of her 13 year old neighbor? Disgusting.
Cal’s marching band done did Tetris on the field. Awesome:
Something Awful’s Anagrammed Video Games parts one and two (sub 1)/two (sub 2): mildly NSFW at points, but absolutely hilarious. I particularly liked “Satanic Veal” (Castlevania), “Queervest II” (Everquest II), “Oatmeal Nut Runner 2004” (Unreal Tournament 2004) and of course “Edible Hitler Chunk” (The Incredible Hulk).

I want an exoskeleton for my birthday:Twisted Metal is coming back to the PS2. ‘Bout time.
I’ve played Tetris, but never on the side of my dormitory. In Finland. Via a mobile phone:
End of line.
