The Adventures of a rubber ball :D

I haven’t played this addictive little game on a smartphone yet, but I have played an early beta version of it on my pc – and even then it was a lot of fun!

It sort of reminded me of the old Nintendo game called Snake Rattle n Roll. Not in any similarity of graphics or gameplay, but rather in the adrenaline pumping need to get to that next level….-cough-

The game was developed – from scratch – by my friend George Panayiotou. Some of you may remember George from comments.Not only is he a brilliant game designer, he also taught himself Maya [Maya is the computer graphics program used to create most of the best CG in movies], and he’s a very talented graphic designer.

George and I go way back to an online forum called guru3D. It was a fun forum in which to hang out, but more importantly, it was a great place to learn from a bunch of very clever geeks. ๐Ÿ˜€

Aaaanyway…if you play games on your mobile phone, why not give The Adventures of a RubberBall a go?

The link below will take you to George’s site:

I believe you can get the Adventures of a RubberBall [for Android] from Google Play. The iOS App Store is coming soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

Congratulations George!

Social Media Part 2 – Have Fun

http://kriswrites.com/2014/02/26/the-business-rusch-social-media-part-2-or-discoverability-part-10-continued/

This post by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and the comment by The Passive Guy, are like a ‘Get Out of Jail’ card for my guilty conscience. I have fun on my blog, but I don’t have fun on Twitter or Facebook, so I don’t go to those ‘parties’. Now I don’t have to feel bad about being so anti-social.

The truth is, I love having meaningful conversations with people, and I’d walk over hot coals for my friends, but I’m more hermit than social butterfly. And to mix my metaphors even more, this leopard can’t change her spots. Now I can just be me, guilt free. ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a great weekend.

Doing something about Climate Change can be fun!

I’ve just discovered you can never predict how and when you will meet another kindred spirit! I’m not a sporty person by any stretch of the imagination, but thanks to my friend Candy Korman, and my post on the Climate Change rally, I’ve just met Lew Blaustein from New York City.

Lew is a blogger who combines his passion for sport with his passion for climate change action in posts that speak the language of sports fans. You can read some of Lew’s posts here and here.

For now though I’d like to share a Nike commerical that Lew showed me. Yes, a commercial. Trust me on this, you’ll enjoy it!

I doubt Nike intended to support action on climate change, and I’m not sure whether basketball superstar LeBron James had that intention either, but this one commercial boosted the uptake of bicycle riding by something like 10%. It almost got me off my chair as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

cheers,

Meeks
