Blue Meanies from Outer Space

Someone called me a meanie today and for some reason, my mind turned to one of my favorite named games of all time - Blue Meanies from Outer Space. You can see from the screen shot it really wasn't a great looking (or playing) game but the name has just stuck with me over the years. I think I'll do an article on the best named games of all time - because I'm not sure anyone else has done that. Somebody liked the game enough to do a remake but I'm not sure I'm brave enough to download it.

My game room is going to be on SPACE: THE IMAGINATION station on Friday, April 24th at 7:30 PM EST and I'm looking forward to it. A number of my Internet friends have never seen the place (and I've never shared video of it) so this will be interesting.

Game Night is Saturday and there is just not enough time to get ready for it. Oh well, it comes whether I am ready or not. Kind of like the ocean.

It's been a good week though. We collected over 50 pieces of recyclables from S.C. Johnson and Son for Earth Day, I exchanged e-mails with War Games director John Badham and I'm probably going to call a Hollywood celebrity tonight. Cool beans.
