Snoopy Magneto

Instant Karma moment

Apparently at the weekend, Paris Hilton (she of the leaked porn video and all round party girl/spoilt rotten brat) gate-crashed a party in Malibu. Unfortunately, when she walked in, all the party guests were gathered round a very large TV screen, gawping at what was on it. Yup, that's right - they were all watching the notorious home video she filmed featuring her and her ex Rick Salomen. In colour. On a large screen. With the sound pumped up.

An eye witness said "It was priceless. She burst into tears, turned on her heels and left."

Child's Play

Or - How old do you want to feel today?

Donkey Kong is "lame." Tetris is "boring." Space Invaders "needs a superbomb or something." And why play Pong when it's more fun to "jump up and down on one foot"? Hey, save your irate letters--we didn't say this stuff. The nostalgia-nuking commentary is from our original Child's Play story in EGM's November 2003 issue, in which we had kids of the PlayStation generation playtest classic games from the '70s and '80s. Mortified gaming grown-ups wrote in to call it blasphemy--and call these outspoken scamps a name that rhymes with "brittle truckers."

Original batch of games here.

Second batch of games here.

Those Lust memes running around...

So, is it a good thing that the two big ones (_elektra's and poshcat's) don't seem to have reached our little area of writing fandom? There's almost none of the people that I read avidly listed there (well, I'm listed twice, mynuet and ginnysdarkside twice, and empressvesica once, but no other names that I really recognise).

And given the kerfuffle that's blown up at fandom wank over the associated ::hugs:: and ::smooches::, maybe it's a good thing.

Let's just stay werry werry quiet, and hope they don't find us, huh?
