Simon Game

"Simon's a computer, Simon has a brain, you either do what Simon says or else go down the drain."

The Simon Says slogan from the mid '80s which had kids all around the world playing Simon Says. To play the Simon Game, you must follow the pattern of lights and sounds and press the buttons in the same sequence. The game gives you a sequence of colors to repeat and each time you successfully complete the sequence, it adds another randomly chosen button to the end. Simon Game is fun, free, and really addicting. Beat your own high score.

Hotel Chevalier

Wes Anderson’s latest film The Darjeeling Limited would be accompanied by a 12-minute short film called Hotel Chevalier which stars Natalie Portman and Jason Schwartzman. The story took place in one room of a French hotel - The Hotel Chevalier and is “a short epilogue of one heartbreaking history of love and the prologue of the travel told in The Darjeeling Limited."

Fox Searchlight has announced that it would not be screening Wes Anderson's Hotel Chevalier in front of The Darjeeling Limited but Anderson had promised that he would somehow find a way to get the Hotel Chevalier available for the public and as promised, it will be available for free on Itunes today.

Feist 1234 lyrics

one, two, three, four,
tell me that you love me more.
sleepless, long nights.
sighs, what my youth was for.
oh, teenage hopes
are alive at your door
left you with nothing,
but they want some more
oh, oh, oh,
you're changing your heart.
oh, oh, oh,
you know who you are.
one, two, three, four.

Cheap, chic and socially responsible

Lately, people have been wearing different colored silicone bracelets. Does this have any meaning?

The trend started with Lance Armstrongs LiveStrong bracelets. It was a fundraising idea were they sold yellow bracelets to raise money. By purchasing one, you supported the fight against cancer. Since then, other custom silicone rubber bracelets have come out supporting different causes, each represented by a different color. Rubber wristands are not just a fad or a fashion statement. They are relatively low in price but they make a big difference.
