Basically a love letter to Clooney, not that I’m complaining. The video is great. “George Clooney has insisted on going into my crawl space.” rach:I may not be the world’s biggest Joel Stein fan, but convincing the Clooney to come over to your house and eat parsley and lamb is pretty baller. If nothing else, the video of George crawling into Stein’s attic to discover the source...

1997 was a good year.
The Blade Runner videogame is notable for its accurate-to-the-movie, even lovingly-imitated environments, and for remaining quite true to Philip K Dick’s novel. The game is in some ways even truer to the book than was the movie, in that Ray McCoy is more troubled by his identity than the film version of Deckard - much like the book’s version of said character.Wikipedia - Blade Runner...
We were recording the game on the pvr and watching 30min behind so we could skip the hilarious commercials and analysis, a good plan until the recording ended when the game was scheduled to end. We switched to live and luckily caught the last 51 seconds. This awesome play was a nice surprise for me today. rach:zachklein: jeffbaum: The Greatest Play of All Time, Embedded.
