Its just like grad school all over again. Do you all know this game called Galvanize? The site is just a promo for The Chemical Brothers (whom I also love) but this game is effin addictive.

I start to work and write but I keep going back to the game. I am currently in the top 100 (#61 at last check but I can't keep up with the kids). Its sickening I know. I had the same problem when I was supposed to finish my thesis back in 1994 but the game was Taipei. This time around I get groovy beats and spinning circular blades.


  1. I wonder if I'm still on there. I was #65 at one point...I played until like...3:00am one night.

    That DJ Lizard. He just kills me.

  2. Whooot! #44 baby!

    I'm a dork.

  3. Man dies after 50 hours of computer games ....

    SEOUL, South Korea - A South Korean man who played computer games for 50 hours almost non-stop died of heart failure minutes after finishing his mammoth session in an Internet cafe, authorities said on Tuesday.

    The 28-year-old man, identified only by his family name Lee, had been playing online battle simulation games at the cybercafe in the southeastern city of Taegu, police said.

    Lee had planted himself in front of a computer monitor to play online games on Aug. 3. He only left the spot over the next three days to go to the toilet and take brief naps on a makeshift bed, they said.

    "We presume the cause of death was heart failure stemming from exhaustion," a Taegu provincial police official said by telephone.

    Lee had recently quit his job to spend more time playing games, the daily JoongAng Ilbo reported after interviewing former work colleagues and staff at the Internet cafe.

    After he failed to return home, Lee's mother asked his former colleagues to find him. When they reached the cafe, Lee said he would finish the game and then go home, the paper reported.

    He died a few minutes later, it said.
