Amateur Surgeon

Want a fun way to waste tons of time which could be put to better use on productive things? Try Amateur Surgeon, another amazing game by the folks over at Adult Swim.

You play as Alan Probe, a pizza boy who turns into a surgeon after he meets a mysterious old man he accidentally hits with his delivery truck. Together they start a back alley hospital using the only tools they have, a pizza cutter, some tongs, a lighter, some anesthetic, a stapler… you get the picture. The games art looks a lot like The Boy Fitz Hammond and has a ton of really great, weird, interesting characters. The game is so completely addicting that you get sucked into them game and 3 hours have passed by… trust me on this one.

There’s 8 people to fix at first, and then there’s also a newly added second edition which I’ve just gotten too. Trust me on this one, you want to become a surgeon too.

The Out-Of-Towners

This weekend San Francisco is being blessed with one really awesome show thanks to the folks over at Fecal Face. The show is called Out-Of-Towners and appropriately it features only artists who aren’t from San Francisco. The show has got several of my absolute favorites like Travis Millard, Corey Arnold, Cody Hudson (that guy is everywhere!) and Tessar Lo, as well as Mel Kadel, Anthony Lister, Erkut Terliksiz, Christofer Chin, and Keith Shore.

The show opens Saturday and goes from 5 – 8 pm, and for more info, like where the show is, click here.

Ummm… I’m In The Wall Street Journal

File this post under un-fucking-believable. Earlier today I got an email from some guy named Jamin asking me for my full name and wanting to talk to me on the phone about The Desktop Wallpaper Project. I immediately think how weird this is, and then I check out out his signature, and it clearly says ” Wall Street Journal”. Turns out “some guy named Jamin” is the writer of Buzzwatch, one of the blogs that the Wall Street Journal has.

So I call him and he’s a really rad guy, and we talk about the project and it goes well, even though I’m slightly nervous. Anyhow, the post is up, it’s just a small mention, but nonetheless, it’s The Wall Street Journal, how cool is that?

Sixpack France

Gah.

If you read KN enough you know I have a serious t-shirt addiction. As of lately I’ve tried to steer away from the look, opting for more button-ups, trying to keep it classy. But then I was told about Sixpack France, and now I’m a little worried that I’m going to regress back!

Sixpack France has actually been around for 10 years now, starting out as a small store in France and now ending up with an amazing online store filled with some o the best artists out there. It’s kind of a joke how awesome their line-up is. They’ve got Brendan Monroe, Cody Hudson, Damien Correll, Dan Funderburgh, Grotesk, Noah Butkus (as you can see above), So-Me,S tefan Marx, Steven Harrington, and like 30 others… it’s totally nuts.

My only beef comes in at the price. The t-shirts run from 32-35 €, which is around $50 per t-shirt, these are pretty damn expensive. I can see paying up to like $30, but c’mon, it’s just a t-shirt! Anyhow, click the link above and check out their drool-worthy collection of tees.

Golden Cage (Fred Falke Remix) by The Whitest Boy Alive

It’s a little known fact that I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love The Whitest Boy Alive. I meet people and for some reason they always come up, which is kind of weird to me because I would think you’d have to be a Kings of Convenience fan to really know who they were. That or a Modular Records junkie. Anyhow, I came across this awesome Fred Falke remix of Golden Cage so I thought I’d share it with you guys. Erlend threw the Fred Flake and Alex Braxe track Rubicon onto the DJ Kicks album he did, so it makes sense that he’d do a remix for him.

If you’d like to download the track, just click here.
