Talk to Action has a lengthy write-up about the game Left Behind: Eternal Forces where players try to convert Jews, Catholics, and non Christians, and kill those they can’t convert.  Alternately, you can play as the Anti Christ and kill all the Christians.  Classy.  Even more classy is that it’s being endorsed by Rick Warren, king of the mega church and author of “A Purpose Driven Life”.

Think they’ll shut up about Grand Theft Auto now?


I’ll bet you didn’t know that those dozens of e-mails you send every day were hand delivered by wee little mice whose very existence is threatened at every turn.  Now, thanks to the marvels of science, you can try to protect one of the mice with Mouse Mailer

Here’s a great animation by the Danish band, Kashmir for their clip ’Rocket Brothers‘.
