Subserial Network never takes up the full screen. Launching the game unfurls a stack of windows on top of whatever you have running. It starts up a faux Winamp music player and loads you into ancient-looking email clients and browser terminals, making the game feel both familiar and alien at once.

A Good Man, and Thorough: The Genius of ‘The Big Lebowski’ - The Ringer
In the published screenplay for The Big Lebowski, a character named “The Dude” is introduced in the stage directions as “a man in whom casualness runs deep.” Of all the Coens’ movies, The Big Lebowski is, at least on the surface, the most ambling and aimless.

Mashup (music) - Wikipedia
DJ Danger Mouse's critically acclaimed remix project The Grey Album effectively launched a new pop subgenre. While The Beatles had made appearances on several mash-up tracks prior to this album (for instance PPM's "A Life in the Day" and JPL's "Let It Be Missy Elliott (Beatlesmix)"), The Grey Album distinguished itself by being made up entirely of samples from The Beatles' White Album and vocals from Jay-Z's The Black Album. The project received considerable attention following EMI's legal threats towards distributors of the album.[19]

Dragon Poker? Any Asprin fans out there?
I played one game of Cosmic Eidex tonight. One game that took about 45 minutes, maybe an hour. As I was learning the rules to the game, I was reminded of Dragon's Poker - a fictional game, somewhat described in one or two of Robert Asprin's Myth Adventure series.
