101 Free games

These lists pop up from time to time.  I look at them when the do.  I always find a game or three I didn’t know about before seeing the list.  The games fall back out of my mind and I play whatever game I’m hooked on at the time (for now, that’s City of Heroes – over 2 years running now).  To check the latest free games, hit 1Up’s list of free games.

What you’re looking at is the result of countless hours spent searching for the best and newest free games. You’ll find some mods, a little shareware, and a couple Web games, but most of the titles on the next few pages are 100 percent free with no strings attached.

So have at the list. And when you are viewing the offerings, make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page for your list of pages.  Clicking on the wrong next page marker doesn’t advance the list to another page.  Just a helpful little tip from Tour-guide Randy.

Eye candy – freaky chick looking freaky hot

Again, some of these are for my enjoyment.  Feel free to skip by any you don’t like.  For those that didn’t skip, can anyone tell me what this picture is from?  She moved up a couple of notches on my women I most want for things I shouldn’t talk about, at least not as a married man, list after seeing this image.

Long lost twins?

Maybe it’s just my imagination, but Ben Kingsley and Howie Mandel sure look a lot alike now.  Are they secretly related?  Images from the Emmy red carpet blah, blah, whatever it’s called.  Here they are, side by side.  Can you tell which is the now knighted man who played Gandhi, and who hosts the TV gameshow Deal or No Deal?

Ninja loves Pirate

With a name like that, you have to want it. The only thing better than a pirate ninja game is an undead pirate ninja game. I’ve just downloaded the demo for Ninja Loves Pirate, so I can’t say whether or not there are undead pirates or undead ninjas in the game, but since you’ve got the pirates and ninjas, that’s enough of a start to make the download worth it. More news when I get a chance to play.

Imagine a place filmed through a blurry lens, in a time when pirates roamed the seas and ninjas sneakup up, attacked and vanished into the night. Heroic quests and shameful ambushes being a part of everyday life. Adventure and fighting. Treasures and poison darts. Manly men being rocked to sleep by the endless rolling of ocean waves. Cunning knights of the night dressed accordingly in snug black pyjamas. A deep blue sae filled with small islands covered with dense jungles and coral beaches. This is the world of Ninja Loves Pirate. You better believe it.

Strip DRM from Windows Media

(via Engadget)
This news is so last week, and I believe there is already work on a patch to fix this crack, but until that happens, if you want to strip the DRM protection off your Windows Media DRM protected files, you need to get FairUse4WM.  I wonder if this will work with the Yahoo Music downloads?  That would be extra tasty with the Yahoo Music 2 years unlimited use for the price of 1 with Mastercard payment offer.

More coulrophobia news

This news from a co-worker. Seems a touring circus in Ireland had a bit of clown trouble which is likely to scar for life the children at the show.

DUBLIN, Ireland (AP) — A hot-air balloon caught fire during a circus stunt, killing a clown acrobat as dozens of children watched, police said Tuesday.

The accident happened Monday night as the Royal Russian Circus was performing in Scariff, County Clare, a village in western Ireland. About 100 people were in the audience, most of them children. Police said the clown was a 26-year-old man from Belarus but didn’t release his name.

Witnesses said the man, dressed in a clown outfit, was hanging from a cage suspended by ropes and a hot-air balloon inside the canvas tent. When the balloon exploded in flames, the cage fell on top of the man.

The man’s wife, who was also part of the act, suffered a broken arm, police said.

“We were all sitting down and they were doing their act. They were up fairly high, but they were doing fine. Next thing, he was down on the ground,” said audience member Hazel Harrington. She said many people in the audience initially thought the falling cage was part of the act.

I can neither confirm nor deny that the name of the clown was Chuckles.
