"Do You Enjoy Television?"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAfGsS__Y-s

Strange video I uploaded to YouTube. It consists of a 1970s TV interviewer asking "Do you enjoy television?" followed by giving a creepy fake smile....this is followed by clips from TV shows (mainly US) giving their reaction to her inane question.

Would this have been possible on CD-i?

I have this strange unrealistic fantasy of one day starting a company that makes new games for old systems (and releasing old games for new systems as a way of funding the new games for old systems).

I do, too, but this one seems to take that concept to the next level.. :lol: I must admit, even *I* got fairly tired of it by the end (meaning I was walking (pacing back and forth, and generally standing up) with the controller in my hands.......

This is from May 2011. My Tetris skills have improved slightly since then. Still haven't finished the final level, though. http://i55.tinypic.com/2ynqsd4.jpg No, I do not have a valid explanation for why I put the names of "Naruto" characters in the high-score tables of games I play. Who knows, Mayb...

I think...we all have games that we enjoy despite their, um, many "problems".

Why do I find "Christmas Crisis" to be kinda addic

The game is kinda bad, yet I keep getting the urge to play it again.

Should I be worried?
