Blow My Mind

The second Hitchhiker's Guide computer game that never was

Via metafilter: the cobbled-together story of what happened to Milliways, the derailed second computer game based on Douglas Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Includes a plea from Andy Baio (the person who pulled this story together) to hear from the people involved in the project to correct any mistakes that may have slipped into the story.

Text adventure games may be my all-time-favorite computer game medium. I'm retro.

Too late! Not too late!

The bad news is that tonight's showing of Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation is sold out. The good news is that A) tomorrow's showing at 3:30 p.m. isn't and B) I have a computer, a credit card and I'm not afraid to use them! (Plus I'm making an extra donation to Film Action Oregon, which is hosting the showings. It's like tipping; it's karmically good.)

So tonight I go home. (Cort and Fatboy and Mike, I can listen to you tonight!) And tomorrow after giving blood in the morning, I'll take the bus and Max from the Red Cross building to the Hollywood District, have a nice lunch, and then watch the film and enjoy its insanity.
