Russell Adams explores a group of friends who have spent the past 23 years playing tag. Yes, the game of tag. Yes, 23 years. The best anecdote:
What they didn’t know was Sean Raftis, who was “It,” had flown in from Seattle and was folded in the trunk of the Honda Accord. When the trunk was opened he leapt out and tagged Mr. Tombari, whose wife was so startled she fell backward off the curb and tore a ligament in her knee.
No pain, no gain.
Naturally, this is being made into a movie. Naturally, that movie will be starring Will Ferrell and Jack Black.
Even Candy Land Isn’t Safe From Sexy
When our kids play with toys that we played with, we assume that they are the same as they were when we were younger. But they aren’t. Not at all. Our girls (and our boys) are now bombarded from the get-go with images of women whose bodies range from unattainable to implausible (Disney Princesses, anyone?).
Oh my god, they’ve defiled Candy Land! Lord Licorice looks like Captain Morgan! Ahhhhhh!
The game is called 10000000 and I’m now very addicted to it.
The first non-iOS game I’ve bought in years.
I haven’t played it just yet, so I can’t vouch for it, but the early reviews look very good.
The fact that this game, which was so groundbreaking a decade ago, has been fully HD-updated and given touch controls and all for just $4.99 (and you get both the iPhone and iPad versions for that price) is beyond awesome.
Excellent. Right before I leave of vacation.
