Braid

I have just discovered a great game. In fact, it goes beyond that of a mere game and into the realm of art. The game is called “Braid” and the best way I can describe it is that it’s a cross between Super Mario Brothers and Memento. Each level deals with the effects of time manipulation. Pressing shift reverses time so you cannot “die”. . . . but there are unintended side effects from this (you’ll know once you play the game). Other levels manipulate time by moving forward when you move to the right and moving backwards when you move to the left. It’s a trip.

Each puzzle in the game is genius, the music is exquisite and the background art is reminiscent of Van Gogh paintings. IE, its very impressionistic. This is an independent game so it’s not sold in stores, and it costs a mere $15. If you have a xbox 360 or a PC, you should check it out, it’s a fucking masterpiece

Work has been drying up lately, actually in a big way. Even my online sales for Los Angeles headshot printing is down (search engine bait, he he). Doing some consulting to make up for the loss in sales, but I got to thinking about turning the place into an internet center. Specifically, an office center for businessmen, screenwriters, and computer professionals to get their work done.

I can offer amenities like:
– Internet access wi-fi and plug in
– Newspapers
– beverages (water, tea, coffee, etc)
– Rental computers
– Cubicles
– Office meeting rooms

I can rent computers hourly or have a flat monthly fee for all-you-can-eat access. This is for people that need to do business but don’t want to rent out full-time offices. Or maybe I can turn it into a standard internet cafe, don’t know. Just a thought, I’ll approach my dad about it this week and see what he says. Here’s some conceptual pictures:

Tactics: the art and science of success

The above is another DeBono book that I put on order. I really enjoyed Lateral Thinking and Six Thinking Hats . I’ll let you guys know what I think of this one when I get/read it.

Problem is Model Printing takes such a large slice of my day. Arrggh. . .
