“Of the Month” April 2011

Link of the Month:
Link of the Month My Birfday
It’s my birfday next month. Here’s my Wish List. SHAMELESS PLUG.

DVD of the Month:
DVD of the Month Max Headroom: The Complete Series
A unique and fascinating 1980s cyberpunk TV show, where the dominant technology is television broadcasting, not computers (though they do play their part). It’s truly a fascinating world where ratings are king, and your boss at the network is sometimes your enemy and sometimes your supporter. Unusual production design and strangely low-budget production values give this show a real alien feel. Not every episode is a hit, but there aren’t very many, and it is endlessly intriguing.

Game of the Month:
Game of the Month Sketch Online
Here’s the premise: imagine playing Pictionary over the internet with strangers, only there’s no board; just drawing. And you have to draw with your finger on a smartphone screen. It may not sound like it, but Sketch Online is ridiculously fun. Sure, every now and then you get some schmo who doesn’t play by the rules or draws something obscene, but for the most part everyone involved seems to actually be trying their hardest. Look for me online: my username is angrybeef (of course).
