Imagine a Scrabble iPad game that used iPhones as letter holders. You could hold up your iPhone so that no one else could see your letters and when you were ready to make a word on the Scrabble iPad board, you could slide them on to the board by flicking the word tiles off your iPhone. What we’re trying to say is that Apple has opened the door for people to create Jumanji-style games – music-filled, fun-packed experiences that can be shared in a novel way. The iPad is an interactive board game platform that could easily revive board game culture and introduce new generations to classic family games. It’s up to developers though to take advantage of this opportunity and show us the future of family-based digital games.

YES MEN is an irreverent new series that’s part Ashton Kutcher’s Punk’d, Ali G and Michael Moore-like mini-documentaries. It spoofs reality and current affairs in a hilarious and playful way as Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonnano pose as corporate and government spokespeople from countries around the world. These YES MEN have become a pop-culture phenomenon. Their pranks are elaborate and the results are profound as they consistently challenge the accepted status quo on a variety of topics. As a pair of creative hoaxers, the YES MEN turn initial impressions about societal falsehoods upside-down, through impersonation, infiltration and sophisticated public theatre. YES MEN is produced by Renegade Pictures for Planet Green.

free at last, free at last. thank god almighty, we are free at last.” – Martin Luther King, Jr

It’s sick to think that we celebrated the birthday of one of the greatest civil rights leaders the United States of America has ever seen only to have it book ended with a monstrosity of a Supreme Court decision that allows non-human entities (ie corporations) to donate freely to political campaigns. I will not stand for this injustice and have added my name in support of Change Congress. We really need a fair and just  funding system for elections, it is the root of our democracy… And when that day happens, once again we will have the freedom to honor the words of Martin Luther King, Jr.
