Once You Touch It, You Can't Keep Your Hands Off It

Just moments after I wrote yesterday's post, friends showed up with video games and a whole bunch of SNACKS. It was wonderful.

If you have a Wii, and I know many of you do, then you owe it to yourself to try this game called Boom Blox. It doesn't sound very awesome when you describe it; it's a physics-based puzzle game where you do various things to blocks, like shooting them or throwing shit at them or pulling them from piles all Jenga-styles, and strangely, Steven Spielberg was involved in its development. But it is awesome. Even with things like Rock Band, Mario Party 8, Grand Theft Auto IV, and fresh air as options, we spent way too much of the long weekend playing Boom Blox. It was good times.

Speaking of Jenga, here are some Jenga-related videos.



More support for my theory that the 90s sucked ass.

This one is just sorta heart-breaking:



The worst part is that, if you watch it again, Jenga dude clearly saw this coming as soon as the interview began.

Okay so first video: Rick Moranis look a like anyone? I vaguely remember that add, I think I was 6 when it came out. I thought the "hello Jenga" lady was stupid then too.
Second video: Please tell me that's staged!

I really hope so! It doesn't seem like it though. Poor people.

While the beginning of the cool video started to play, my eyes glanced over and saw that you wrote below it "dude clearly saw this coming"... My eyes opened and I started bouncing in my chair with childlike anticipation. Pure awesome!
