Feeling pretty good about my Detective Mosely disguise

My childhood bedroom’s door is broken, so that if it is shut all the way, it can only be opened from outside my room, in the hallway. “Well, you always wanted a lock on your door, remember?” Mom says. Ha, ha.

Recently I was locked in my own bedroom, and instead of making a racket, I made a phone call. Then I had to twitter about it: “Used cell phone to call people in other part of house to ask them to bust me out of my bedroom, which I was briefly locked inside of.”

Bob Mackey replied, “you just lived through an adventure game puzzle. congrats.”

And I thought that was a very sweet thing to say. I like playing adventure games because maybe if you play enough adventure games, you become this amazing, heroically resourceful person in your everyday life. For instance, last week, my friend Conci daringly escaped a room using olive oil. Honey on the cat hair makes a mustache!

Homey don’t make no fool of himself

I have been staring at the screen for several minutes, asking it, Now, how did that happen?

Mostly I am wondering how long Renaissance everyman Frank Cifaldi has been contributing to the Retronauts blog without my knowledge. But also I am wondering how, exactly, HOMEY D. CLOWN, the point-and-click adventure game, ever came to pass.

My Boyfriend is the Prime Minister of Russia

Vladimir Putin is really sexy in this!

Games journalist Alex Litel writes,

Initially I thought this was a music video for a bizarre Japanese song called “My Boyfriend is the President,” but then I found out it’s the introduction video for a Japanese erotic computer game called “My Boyfriend is the President.” It is surprisingly innocuous given its source.

Weddings always make me cry

The “VS” is a little weird to me, but I think I get it.
