Otherfoot: Only Pen and Paper Required

I put together a website dedicated to my all-time favorite game, Otherfoot (mentioned previously in my 2006 FPP about ink-and-paper games). Otherfoot is a card game, played with a newly-created homemade deck every time. Gameplay is similar to Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity (pre-dating the latter), with key differences laid out in the FAQ (and reposted below). The game concept was developed by friends of my brother, and I've derived a lot of joy from playing Otherfoot with old and new friends for more than 10 years. [more inside]

better than being a

doginouter.space. I had a dream last night about my friend Rick, who died in the Bali bombing back in 2002, and so I spent the morning making this thing about an in-joke we shared to give myself (and hopefully a few other people) a slightly melancholy chuckle. [more inside]

Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse with Android

TauntBot is an exercise in generated language. It uses a rather huge and growing corpus of hand-selected words, and an interesting set of rules, for hand-crafting them into verbose insults. It then posts these to Twitter. It replies to people, I'm hoping to get it to trade barbs with them. Yes, I'm a terrible person. Now, with that out of the way... [more inside]

Rook Trader, an interesting and occasionally alarming internet game

A game where you play as a bird, or possibly as a chess piece, or somehow both. You want shiny and warm things for your nest. Fly to other nests and negotiate trades for your existing shiny and warm things. Accrue wealth. Crash the economy for fun and profit. [more inside]

Brian & Lindsay Will Totally Eat That

I created this show - the first video series from our media network MaximumFun.org. It's called Brian & Lindsay Will Totally Eat That, and I made two very nice young people eat all kinds of weird stuff and I'm very proud of it.

Live standup/storytelling: 'New Yorkers Scream At Each Other When They're Being Nice.'

I told this story at The Moth's 'Grand SLAM' in Brooklyn a while back about the time that I was just trying to take the subway home and eat an entire container of Ben and Jerry's ice cream when my groceries spilled all over the train and I got in a screaming match with a really nice lady.

Conservative Book Title Generator. If the Ted Cruz-New York Times controversy has taught us anything, it's that (1) all books written by conservatives are bestsellers; and (2) all such books have pretty much indistinguishable titles.

Counterfeit Content

My short, sorry stint in SEO was the strangest job I've ever had. I was asked to create hundreds of imaginary webmasters and write little "About Me" biographies of their lives for fake blogs that only Google's webcrawlers were meant to read. They gave me the site name, I wrote the bio, and a coworker added manipulated photos. I did this for many months. I began to get bored... and then I began to get weird.

Twitter-based Pluto "Facts"

In commemoration of the impending flyby of Pluto by the New Horizons mission, I have created a twitter account, inspired by other such "fact" oriented accounts as @CatTipps, @FactsAboutEggs. Will publish a fact or two about Pluto every day up through the NASA flyby, or as long as the inspiration lasts.

Tours of Failed Civilizations

Metafilter saved my life on so many days when I felt hopeless and alone. Here is my love letter back. It's about systems collapse, intimacy, and grief. I tried to keep it as funny as possible, but it did turn out a little dark. I hope you like it. If financial concerns prevent you from enjoying this work at this time, ping me. I think a crate of .pdf's fell off the Amazon truck.

Console Obscura - a retro gaming culture and history podcast

Console Obscura is a podcast dedicated to video games and the people who play them. Ephemera, nostalgia, absurdity, history, culture, arcana and trivia are all fair game. If you remember what a new power pad smelled like, or Ganon's laugh sounds like, OR If none of that rings a bell but you enjoy a group of funny children of the 80s talking trash, this podcast is for you. Game on!

We all know that many new emoji were recently added to the Unicode standard. What we don't know is what emoji will be added in the years to come. Library of Emoji is a Twitter bot that speculates, several times each day, on what new emoji might appear in future Unicode revisions—emoji that today may seem unreasonable, but someday may be commonplace: COOKWARE SYMBOL.

Internet Directory

According to ICANN, .COM domains were intended for business, .ORG for nonprofit, and .NET for internet providers and "Web Portals." Internet Directory is a listing of every domain using these TLDs -- beginning with the 115 million .COMs -- as they stand in early 2014. On a fast browser, it takes 599 days to watch every domain scroll by. [more inside]

Exponential Binary Clock Countdown

This is a fairly simple concept site to try to convey just how enormous exponential growth becomes. It counts to 2^63rd power at 100 increments per second, with notes about what might be happening when that next bit, in this case a square on an 8x8 grid, turns black. Hoping people can use it as a tool to inspire a little wonder in math.

A Christmas Boner: A Christmas Carol Remixed

I took Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol and remixed it so that throughout the entire story, Scrooge has a boner. It’s juvenile and incredibly stupid, but I dare say parts of it turned out pretty damn funny. It’s available as a free eBook, and you can download it in MOBI (Kindle), ePub (everything else), or Word formats. Or you can just read the whole thing online. [more inside]

Pizza Clones

You've heard this one: "Every pizza is a personal pizza if you try hard and believe in yourself." Pizza Clones is a Twitter bot that attempts to imitate this joke and elaborate on it, replacing the noun, adjective and condition with stuff it randomly finds on Twitter. Examples: "Every house is an open house unless you have NO pants on"; "Every weekend is a normal weekend if you regret at least one decision"; "Every time is an appropriate time if it wasn't for my aunt Barbara."
