I’ve had trouble writing piffle about my life at the moment, since everything seems so unworthy of commentary in the face of the London transit bombings.
Those of you seeking distraction from these disturbing events may want to follow my suggestions as to how to find some temporary solace from grisly thoughts.
Google for “distraction”.
The second hit you get will be a link to a brief, 5-part flash-animated interactive playsite called “The ConZENtration Game”, which aims to measure your distractability and improve your level of Zen.
Try it out, but beware: you need to turn off your speakers for the first three games, but you NEED sound to be on for game #4 (my personal favorite) the Barnyard Identifier. Game number five is a cunning, pen and ink Teen-Girl-Squad-styled version of Space Invaders.
