Don't make me refer you to the Department of Nosy Broads with busted teath  
Three things on the indie game front, then stuff:

Super Mario Bros. Crossover, built from scratch by a dude who taught himself programing so he could make this game is exactly the kind of game you make when you want to make a game so bad you teach yourself programing to do so. The vision here was very clear. Also, beating Super Mario Bros as Samus is hella fun. And Link is shockingly good in X-4 levels. Plus, it's just fun to run through a level of flying fish, gunning everything down Contra-style.

Hero Core also released this week, by the creator of Iij. If the Atari had never ceased production, this is the game that would have resulted. Also if it had babies with Metroid.

And short, minimalist platformer Love has a demo for the new version, which will hopefully drop soon. And a level creator!

Good Show Sir is a blog about really awful SF book covers. I mean,just look.

Interesting article on how the brain makes memories.

John Seavey's brilliant take on the biography of Steve Rogers is something I would read. Something I would super-read.

Troubled? ZeFrank would like you to chill.

Remember the rimshot button? Now there isa collection of buttons for rimshots and EVERYTHING ELSE.

In the 80's someone asked The Straight Dope's Cecil "What's the deal with Dungeons and Dragons?" The answer is pretty hilarious, although entirely accurate.

A timeline of Facebook descent into evil. Not that I'll stop using it just yet.

The desert does crazy things to a man's mind (yoink).

Concerning SMBC, I find it particularly fun to play an underground level with Samus or Bill and use my wave beam/spread shot to completely destroy the structural integrity of the level. Walls? Ceilings? NOPE.

Need a quick favor: There was a webcomic you linked to awhile ago that was hosted on flickr. Fair number of infographics, something about... famous soviets? Ring any bells?

Maybe it was famous Russians. Or communists. They had nicknames!

I got nothing! I'll take a look back though.

It was a fair while ago. He was clearly a visual designer of some kind, one of his comics was about that.

And thanks.
