The Human Tetris Project just might be the next big social networking gaming craze.The Human Tetris Project just might be the next big social networking gaming craze.

Link points to a video over on ABC's website which goes over exactly what you'll be getting yourself into should you decide to take part in said project. It's an interesting concept and partnership between EA Games and Facebook. Definetly needs more Music A though.

Blockbuster strikes deal with Warner Brothers to rent movies on release day.Blockbuster strikes deal with Warner Brothers to rent movies on release day.

Well, this is certainly a little strange. This deal is not currently available to Netflix and RedBox users - meaning you have to wait quite a bit before seeing new releases from Warner before you can rent them. But for Blockbuster members, you can rent their movie the day it's released on DVD. Okay then.

We like to think of Building Maker as a cross between Google Maps and a gigantic bin of building blocks. Basically, you pick a building and construct a model of it using aerial photos and simple 3D shapes – both of which we provide.

Writer's Block

Created this one when I had finally hit the wall with making comics. I just opened up my cartooning application of choice, in this case Adobe Flash - and started doodling. The outcome was what see above. Shortly after this, I stopped making comics all together. Though I have aspirations to make more one day.
