That's Octogon, Not Otakon
Now that Chronturbo 3 is safely in the can, we can turn our attention to the new Chrontendo. I'm hard at work on it now. The highlight will probably be a mini-history of Tetris, and the horrible mix-ups that occurred over the rights to that game. If you don't know the full story, you will hopefully find it to be fascinating stuff.
I have no videogame related content for you today, but I will encourage you to test your knowledge of literary iconoclasts and hip-hop eccentrics with the quiz below. This is actually quite brilliant, since you would not necessarily notice the similarities between James Joyce and Kool Keith. Maybe some day I'll share the New Wave/Punk cover art quiz I created some years ago.
Click here to take the quiz. I scored 9 out 10, by the way. Hudson Hongo is also known as the fellow behind Literally Unbelievable. If you ever want to lose all faith in mankind's capacity for critical thinking, check out Literally Unbelievable.
Also, I don't normally post silly videos I that I find online, much less things posted on Cracked.com. However, I've been playing the NES TMNT game, which naturally brought to mind a certain terrible early 90s rap song, and this Corey Feldman song is in a very similar vein. I don't know what exactly is going on in this video, but I can tell one thing: Mr. Feldman's dance moves are incredibly sick.
Seriously, those moves are SICK as HELL! I think I now have even more respect for Corey Feldman.
