Websites For Your Entertainment

It's been a few days since I've posted any new links on here, and the only excuse I have is that I've gotten addicted to a certain game that I haven't been able to peel myself away from long enough to make a good list of links.  The first link I will give will take you to that game, and you probably won't even bother with the rest if you're like me, because once you get started with this game, it's easy to want to play just long enough to level up just one more time, and then again, and again.

ShellShock Live 2
It looks just like all of those other tank games, where you're on one side of the screen, trying to line up the trajectory of your shot to hit somebody on the other side of the screen.  It looks that way, but under the surface this game has so much going for it that past renditions have lacked.  For one, it is multiplayer with an in game chat, but that's not really revolutionary is it?  It has an arsenal of different types of shots, and you unlock new weapons every time you level up.  Ah yes, you gain experience every time you battle, and level up to unlock new features and maps.  Your weapons also level up.  There are many different game modes.  I could go on and on.

If you're a musician, chances are you've heard of this site, but if not, get over there now.  It's like social networking with music, it's a lot easier to share the link to your SoundCloud page than to pass out demos, and it's easy to keep track of how many people listen to each song, who downloaded, and who's following you.  If you're not a musician, but a big music fan, this is a great place to find a ton of underground music.

Pixlr is basically Adobe PhotoShop in your browser.  It's free, and very easy to use, and convenient if you use more than one computer throughout the day.  There are a wide range of filters and effects you can use, and everything is highly customizable, and you can edit pictures by layers.

The Colossal Squid Exhibition
As always I try to include an interactive website.  In this one you can design a colossal squid and then set him free.  Building the squid is pretty fun, and you can drag him around like a rag doll, after you set him free you can return and visit him later on to see how much weight he's gained and how far he's traveled.

10 Psychological Experiments That Went Horribly Wrong
I love weird, and I love lists, and this is a combination of the two, so what's not to enjoy?  Not much else to say.
