…It’s TGI Friday: Dangeresque Roomiside 1: Behind The Dangerdesque?

Dangeresque

Dangeresque Roomisode 1: Behind the Dangerdesque is an old-school adventure game from Videlectrix that puts you in charge of Dangeresque, the detective alter-ego of Strong Bad from HomestarRunner.com.

The goal is to solve the unsolved murder case that Dangeresque said he solved months ago without leaving the room, because otherwise the chief will catch on to Dangeresque’s plan and throw him in jail. To reach that goal, you must WASD your way around the room and click on any objects of interest to talk to, look at, or use them towards the goal of solving three different missions as outlined in the case file.

As with anything Strong Bad, half the fun is just reading the words that come out of his mouth, and this game doesn’t disappoint, so though it might be a little on the short side, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.

…Philias can be fun?

Philias

People get aroused by the strangest things, and though it’s tough to imagine what’s going through the mind of a somnophiliac as they get aroused by watching someone else sleep or a dacryphiliac as they get turned on by the thought of making someone else cry, it’s actually kind of funny to see it all in comic form.

Dustin Glick’s Fun World of Philias details 25 strange and unusual ways to get your rocks off, and adds enough hearts to almost make you forget your watching an apotemnophiliac get turned on from the thought of having a limb amputated.

Almost.

…Cameron Hughes is a superfan?

Cameron HughesCameron Hughes is a professional superfan; paid by team owners to get crowds on their feet and to create team spirit wherever he goes.

“I’m that guy,” says Hughes “the funny, happy, dancing, possibly very drunk guy you’ve seen at the ballpark at least once.”

But he’s not drunk (he says he never drinks before games, and prefers to down three Red Bulls instead), and he’s not just doing it for fun either. Teams pay him an average of $2,000 per game to work his magic in the stands, and when you consider the fact that he works an average of 80 to 90 games per year, you’ll see that he’s making a comfortable six-figure salary by whipping fans, and maybe even you, into a frenzy.

So how did Cameron get his start?

After college, he moved to Los Angeles and tried to make it as an actor. At a Dodgers game, he put his acting skills to work in the stands, and was approached by the team about hiring him to do his “superfan” gig full time. Soon word of Cameron’s skills spread from team to team, and he started receiving unsolicited offers from all across the country. Before he knew it, the acting career was out the window, and he was doing a new kind of acting at any game that needed a little more spirit.

So keep Cameron in mind the next time you’re at a game and wondering what the guy dancing through the stands is doing, because he just might be paying the bills from your fun.

…Jowling is crazy looking?

Jowling

Jowling (AKA the Slap n’ Flap) is a photography technique where the subject completely relaxes their facial muscles and then shakes their head side to side as fast as they can.

The end result is a funny/silly picture that gives anyone’s face cartoon like proportions, and is perfect for capturing those candid moments.

Just something to keep in mind during your next family portraits…
