 VIDEO GAMES 


Tremors Flash game

It's been a couple decades since Kevin Bacon graced filmgoers with tales of man vs. giant
subterranean worms with the sci-fi/horror flick Tremors.  Now those itching to relive
the 1990 classic (without dropping $4.99 for the DVD) only need to travel over to Newgrounds
to play the Tremerz Flash game.  This quickie by TomFulp and JohnnyUtah has Valentine McKee
amass his group of worm-attack survivors and...well...survive.  Tremerz is a brief one but it's 
a real nostalgia trip.  Check it out over at:

 MOVIES 

Late to the movies: Hot Tub Time Machine
No review, just Hiller's bottom line.
Ric: I saw Hot tub time machine. It's awesome. Super funny and well worth it.
review of Clash of the titans and the Runaways.
Clash ah it's ok. Nothing great better then the old stop animation original. Matinee at best
Runaways. Again ok, slow movie great acting from Stewart and Fanning.

The rules of Scrabble have changed!

Rejoice idiots!  In an attempt to draw in young and stupid players, Mattel has changed
the rules of accepted words in Scrabble to now allow proper nouns.  Names, places and
even commercial brands will be accepted words when a new edition of the game is
introduced in July.  Mattel says that they will continue to distribute a classic version of
the game as the sole hope for actual challenge in the board game arena.

'Sausage' man hit by motorcycle

MILWAUKEE, April 6 (UPI) --

A man dressed as a sausage for the Opening Day

Klement's Racing Sausages relay in Milwaukee

said he was not seriously injured in a collision with a motorcycle.

 

Kevin Carboni, of La Crosse, Wis., said he was running in the sausage relay

from the Klement's factory to Miller Park for the event celebrating the

Milwaukee Brewers' season opener Monday and was struck by a police motorcycle

when he attempted to high five some spectators at the side of the road,

the La Crosse Tribune reported Tuesday.

 

"It looks a lot worse than it is," Carboni said of video footage of the incident. "It must be that tough Klement's casing."

Carboni said his foot and leg were hurt a little, but he was able to finish his part of the relay.

"I've taken harder falls in Hixon Forest," Carboni said.

He said the incident has not soured him on the sausage relay.

"I'd do it again in a second," he said. "Without the motorcycle, of course."

NEW YORK April 6 (UPI) --

 

A New York teen who got the better of two robbers

said he finished his pizza delivery after handing a suspect over to police.

 

Assami Semde, 19, said he was on the 25th floor at Taino Towers

in the city's Harlem neighborhood while delivering for the Famous Famiglia pizza parlor Friday

when he was confronted by two teenagers wearing hoodies and bandannas,

the New York Post reported Tuesday.

 

Semde said one of the robbers "put a gun to my head and said, 'Give me the pizza.'"

 

The delivery worker said he set the pizzas down and waited for the armed robber to pick them up.

"I punched him and pushed him against the elevator," Semde said.

 

He said the gunman ran off, but he was able to hold the second teenager, Albert Alvarez, 19, until police arrived.

Semde said he delivered his pizzas after handing Alvarez over.

 

Police said Alvarez was charged with attempted robbery. Investigators are searching for the second suspect.
