The 11th Dice Guys podcast has Skyrim, Second Life Terrorism, Pamela Anderson as the Virgin Mary — and then it just gets weird. We found people who live their lives by following what the dice tell them to do. And when everything gets just too crazy for you,we give you some web series to relax with. And, of course, Game Picks of the Week and Brain Flakes! Check out the show notes for details and links!
- Jason says his week was spent ignoring his Minecraft addiction for his new addiction to Bethesda Softworks’ Skyrim. Junkie.
- Mike admits he played some Skyrim, too, but also that he took a class in audio editing to brush up on things and learn some new tips.
- Pamela Anderson will be starring as the Virgin Mary in a Christmas TV special on Canadian television. Yes, THAT Pamela Anderson. No word on if Tommy Lee will be playing Joseph.
- The FBI released its National Gang Threat Assessment. Making the cut this time: Insane Clown Posse Juggalos and users of Second Life, because, you know, people training to teleport from one sim to another are scary. G4TV has the story.
- Minecraft exits beta! Yay! Full price now, peoples. Oh, by the way, iPad and iPhone users can get addicted to it now, too, although like the Android version it isn’t multiplayer.
- SCIENCE! New data shows evidence of liquid water just beneath the surface of Jupiter’s moon Europa. Read about it at NASA’s site.
- And more SCIENCE! Looks like a second set of scientists has confirmed neutrinos travelling faster than the speed of light. Yikes!
- Randomize your life? We look at Dice Walking, a phenomenon that traces back to [amazon_link id=”0879518642″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]a 1971 book called The Dice Man by Luke Reinhardt[/amazon_link]. The main character didn’t turn out too well, but could dice living be ok? Or how about Dice Music? Randomize your compositions, like Mozart did! Check out the forum discussion at iCompositions.Com or the Wiki page on Aleatoric Music.
- Web Series! We look at some of our favorites!
