Tablas and Harmonicas

July 26th, 2005

The two instruments I want to learn to play most (right now) are the Tablas and the Harmonica. Tablas are awesome, I just love them. Harmonica is also great, I’m a sucker for any guitar w/ harmonica music (a la Bob Dylan). Harmonica may happen first, just because they’re cheaper. (Tablas aren’t really cheap) Anyway, I was thinking about this — And then it hit me — I could play them both at once!! Would it be a folk implosion or pure musical genius? Hmm, perhaps we’ll never know. I could probably write songs about lychees . . . Anyway, if ya’ll ever come across music like the music I’m dreaming of making, let me know, I’d love to hear it. Ok, this post must end, it’s a run-on, meandering disaster.

So, my latest addiction (don’t worry flickr, there’s room for multiple addictions in my online life) is Kingdom of Loathing.

It’s a very simple html implementation of an adventure game (An Adventurer is You!).  All the images are stick figures and the basic gameplay is: click here, then click here, then click here — proving that the most important thing about a game is the Content and Story.  Also, it’s free!   It ‘s also  a great example of Creating Passionate Users (take me as an example: I’m giving free advertising and I’ve donated to the game (and I’ll probably donate again).

So, if you have some time to spare, I highly recommend playing.  Careful though, it is addictive (you’ve been warned).
