Creeper World – new RTS/defense game

creeper world
Ok, this one is totally NOT crafty at all, but a new PC/MAC game is absolutely geeky. The only reason I’m posting this is because a friend of mine created this game. The game is called Creeper World and it’s a RTS/Tower Defense type game for PC and MAC. You can find out more and download a free demo at http://knucklecracker.com. I typically dislike RTS games but I played through the first three levels right before I wrote this and enjoyed it thoroughly. I’ll be going back to finish the demo.

Guitar Hero Scarf

guitar-hero-scarf

So if you live anywhere near me, it isn’t scarf weather anymore. Not even close. But I’m sure somewhere in the midwest it’s still snowing, and I hear that Siberia is quite cold this time of year. Anyway, this blog isn’t always about functionality, is it? No. No it’s not, so when I saw this six foot long Guitar Hero Scarf featuring the actual riff from “Killer Queen“, I threw caution (and the weather) to the wind and decided to post it.  Domestic Scientist posted this in two parts, a progress entry and the finished product. This is a rockin’ accessory.
