Wil Wheaton loved Watchmen. A lot.
from Wil’s blog: While I listened to him speak, it hit me: Zack Snyder cares about Watchmen as much as we do, and it shows. Before I realized it, I was on my feet, getting in line, not to ask a question, but to make a comment. When I approached the mic, I felt my hands get cold and I couldn’t feel my feet. This is typically what happens to me when I’m really nervous. I...

‘This mild-mannered DS game has a premise so staggeringly unlikely that when you first hear it you may find yourself trilling with dainty laughter at the very thought of somebody trying to pull it off. “Yeah,” sighs lead designer Matt Cox, the very somebody in question. “We tend to get that reaction a lot.” The premise is this: Scribblenauts is a platforming puzzle...

The intern glances at the form. “You need to put your full name on here.” But I did. “No, Bono is not your full name,” he says, and hands the form back to me. I scratch out Bono, fill in my...

Luther's opinion on music →
Why is God so concerned that we use music to worship Him? One response comes from Martin Luther. This is a portion of his Forward to Georg Rhau’s Symphoniae iucundae, a collection of chorale motets published in 1538: “Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world. It controls our thoughts, minds, hearts, and spirits…This precious gift has been given to man...
