Addictive New Game on Orisinal

One of my favorite games sites is orisinal.com. The games are truly original. Each one is a unique concept.

I'm definitely a videogame addict, but rarely do I get to feed my addiction with something new. First it was Defender, with a steady stream of copycats. Then came Super Mario Brothers, then countless hundreds of knockoffs. I don't even know which game was the first first-person shooter, but now the top 10 always seems to have five or six of them. I think EverQuest gets the credit as the first true massively multiplayer online role-playing game. My only every couple of years and do we see something original. Heck, even Tetris has been knocked off about 4000 times.


But this website, created by one individual, has a huge number of miniature games that are original as they are addicting. Beyond that, the artistry is phenomenal and completely unique. The music is completely original, and for most of the games, is soothing rather than annoying. And finally, they are family-friendly. With two children who are just starting their adventures in video games, I can appreciate games that don't feature blood and gore. These games actually have extremely mild violence if any at all, and no death and destruction.

The newest game is called Winterbells. I won't say it's my favorite, but it's definitely fun, and absolutely adorable. Check them all out when you get a chance.

He said "That's a mirror, dip-shit!"

Sunfyre's Google Glass Fundraiser (a.k.a. shameless begging)

Well, Google Glass went on sale today for a limited time to the general public.

Unfortunately, I can't exactly spare $1500 right now.… Commence shameless begging!

I try not to play the "help the disabled guy" card.  It goes against my nature. But in this case, I figured I'd make an exception (at least this is how I'm rationalizing it in my own head).

Google Glass has amazing potential for people like me. I can't use my arms or legs any longer. I use my voice recognition software to type, design websites, write articles and marketing plans for clients.

In the era of smart phones, they aren't very friendly to people like me. Most of them can't be navigated with a mouse, and even Apple's Siri doesn't do a great job with voice activation. First, you have to press a button just to get her attention.

but with this device, which connects through my android phone, I'd be able to read email and navigate my basic telephone functions with wearable g…
