Tim Curry is 65

Happy birthday, Tim Curry! The English character actor, acclaimed on stage and screen, is 65 years old today. Let’s pause for a moment to silently celebrate his myriad voice-over and FMV contributions to the world of computer games.

Here he is, hamming it up with both class and gusto in 2008’s Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3:

Update: Aww! I really like Luke Plunkett’s commemoration of Tim Curry’s Special Day over at Kotaku! A lot of fun clippy-clips there (and none of them are Gabriel Knight which, beloved as that work may be, is really too obvious a go-to, IMO). As my mom always writes in her emails, “Smiley face!” I love these clips! Go see!

LTTP: ‘Be Aggressive’

See, this is one of those moments wherein I’m so Late to the Party I’m just baffled by myself. Thanks for IMing me a link to it, Mike! Where were you two years ago, huh, bro? (Just kidding! Thanks, Mike!)

Brad Neely (Washington) made this video about the Competitive Spirit. I have no idea whether this is safe for workplace viewing. Probably not. Probably your boss will catch you fullscreening it and she’ll be like, “Wow, that video is two years old; you’re fired.”

Daily Linksplosion: The Really Angry One

I get angry, but not that often. Or maybe I am angry a lot. But in my adult life I have always stepped lightly around my own opinions. That timorousness has helped maintain a lot of friendships that might otherwise not have lasted. My best childhood friend and I, for instance, have completely opposite, rabidly passionate beliefs. We have carefully cultivated a friendly and loving political distance. She and I understand the stakes. We know that, if we begin those conversations, we won’t stop, our feelings will be hurt, and no one will win. That is why she is my best friend. I have the same relationship with, you know, my mother.

Maybe nobody needs to know everything I’m thinking at any given moment, or how I feel about health reform or gun laws or Larry Elder (it’s complicated). Maybe there are some fiercely held opinions I’d do just as well to keep under my hat, just as I’d do well not to march up to a friendly acquaintance and scream “I hate you and everything you stand for.” No, I tiptoe, genuinely working hard to not alienate my fellow humankind. There’s no reason, ordinarily, for me to take up arms and get in your face and go THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS.

“Graph paper is favored by all game designers, and this little gem was found at Global Game Jam 2011 in Vancouver. I love trying to figure out what this game is about, and how it plays.”
