Things That Make Me Snarf - Organ Trail

Today, I'm going to break with history. Generally, I post a video for the weekly thing that makes me snarf. But not today. Today, I am DEFIANT.

Reminds me of this aborted comic book I was writing with a friend about Defiant Man and his chick sidekick, Groupie Girl. I had a sketch of Defiant Man hanging on my wall. Defiant Man was TEH COOL. But Defiant Man's artist lived in Manchester, and I lived in Ohio, which seemed highly unfair to me. And it never happened.

Wow. Hello, Tangent. I'm Carrie.

Anyway, I'm being defiant because I'm not posting a video today. I'm posting a GAME. A game that will suck away all your time. A game that you will in fact play periodically during the Class of 2k11 launch despite the fact that you have lots to do and your daughter keeps puking on things. (Or maybe you're playing it BECAUSE of those things.) I give you the the zombieriffic replacement for Oregon Trail.

I give you: ORGAN TRAIL!

So if you're stuck on your NaNo novel, you have places to go. See, aren't I nice? I provide a public service!

Speaking of public service, anybody interested in some superridiculouspretty Bad Taste in Boys bookmarks, featuring some superridiculouspretty illustrations by superridiculousbutnotnecessarilypretty Manning Krull? Email me at carrie at carrieharrisbooks dot com with your mailing address, and I'll hook you up.

It's good to be defiant from time to time. Thanks for the link. I may need a distraction later in the day.

Oh my god! This is so full of win I don't even know what to say ...

So: thank you! That is all.

I seriously could play this for hours. I remember Oregon Trail. Us elementary kids ate it up. We thought it was the coolest thing. Can you imagine if it had been Organ Trail, we would have loved it all the more. This must show my age far to easily. Yep, I'm old and love it! Thanks Carie.

Why? Carrie, why????

Oh, well it's not like I was doing anything productive. Just started watching Dawson's Creek :)
