A Hypothetical Mets Wall of Honor

mattjanik:

So, via Tom Haudricourt at Milwaukee’s Journal Sentinel (link), we learned this morning that the Brewers are doing this kind of neat thing to honor players who spent significant time with the franchise. Visit the link for full details, but it’s clear that it’s entirely different from a team’s…

Someone’s Got to Make Dasani’s Videogame

Someone’s got to make this, put it on the appstore and donate the profits to Dasani.

From this Times piece:

If Dasani could design her own video game, she would call it “Live or Die.” The protagonist would be an 11-year-old girl fighting for her own salvation.

In the first round, she confronts the easy villains — her chores — scrambling to bathe, dress and feed her siblings. She cannot find Baby Lele, who is crying. The baby’s tears turn into lethal rocks that fall from the sky, which the girl must dodge.

Next, she encounters her parents battling social workers in the guise of angry pirates. Chanel tosses magical powers to the girl, who defeats the pirates, melting them to the ground.

In the third round, she goes to school, finding danger and deliverance. Her math teacher is a supervillain whose weapon is numbers. “Ten” turns into 10 charging porcupines. Down the hall, the girl must rescue Miss Hester from giant, rolling cans. “If she dies, all the kids die, too.”

Finally, the girl faces off against her longtime rival from the projects, a purple hulk who picks up cars and hurls them. If the girl survives, she reaches the queen — the principal, Paula Holmes — who decides her future. Winning brings the prize of a new house. Losing means returning to the shelter, “which is death.”

“My goal is to make it to the end, but I keep dying,” Dasani says.

This week on The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show my guest is Dave Dobson, the creator of Snood. in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, Dave sold millions of Snood registration codes one-by-one, collecting checks through the mail. The most impressive part? He did it all while studying and teaching geology.

In this episode we discuss how Snood came to be, how it’s different from Puzzle Bobble, and how it went viral before social media.

Listeners of The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show, I declare this a good one. Check it out at JeffRubinJeffRubinShow.com or iTunes.
