In a dystopic future akin to Brave New World - (1932 book), by Aldous Huxley, everyone is lost in a virtual reality, playing a game to take control of the world's largest corporation.

This movie is parasitic to the childhoods of old men and permanent-children. It's worth a watch if you're over 40, otherwise it'll be a fairly confusing mess of references.

A simple volume icon for your taskbar's tray.

Works great, no dependencies for me, and does more than what I want.

I got this working, because fbpanel's volume plugin decided to not show up again.

    • Even if set to not do so, clicking will mute: Click once for the popup volume slider, and click again to mute.
    • Fucking thing is compiled with notification enabled, and it can't be turned off. \apt-get remove notification-daemon

A semi-roguelike tower defence-ish game.

Utterly impossible. Doesn't make a lick of sense. Unlimited waves of stuff, for some reason. Can't build enough, the resource limitations are obscene.

Inspired by the story of the forty-seven rōnin. If you don't know it, then don't look that up. I can't give a description without spoiling it. Consider yourself lucky to have a fresh mind.

This is a patient yet tense movie. I have next to no notes, because there's really nothing to write or even think about. Recommended, though not "highly recommended", as there are a lot of movies which execute this general manly-man theme extremely well. Though it's not among its number, anyone who likes the samurai genre should give this a watch.

An asshole anchorman is sent to a little town to do a fluff story on Groundhog Day, but karma bites him in the ass when the town gets snowed-in.

A fantastic movie not just for the usual things, but for the execution of its idea. Unlike so many movies that have its elements, this one stays grounded and accessible. This movie is well-loved and highly recommended.
