Video Game Play no not that kind of gameplay and Street Fighter Galore!

This one caught me by suprise, Kotaku sheds light on a insane sounding, but fun video game play

Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom

here's the synopsis from their site:

In a suburban subdivision with indentical houses, parents find their teenagers addicted to an online horror video game. The game setting? A subdivision with identical houses. The goal? Smash through an army of zombies to escape the neighborhood for good. But as the line blurs between virtual and reality, both parents and players realize that fear has a life of its own!

Super Street Fighter IV Fight Club!!

Some sort of new secret street fighter fight club happening this Friday!
Check the Capcom community blog later in the week for more info

Here's whats been posted so far
The party is going down this Friday, April 23rd, from 8pm to midnight, in Los Angeles, CA (in the Silver Lake neighborhood). We’ll post the exact address on Thursday, so stay tuned, but here’s a little taste of what’s in store, and why people are already making plans to fly into town just for this party:

-Of course you can go hands on with Super Street Fighter IV, and get chances to win an early copy of the final game on PlayStation 3.
-Great Street Fighter art on the exclusive shirts + posters, live art on the walls, and even… on you?
-Gift bags for the first few hundred fans through the door
-Live DJ, light food and drinks
-Big-screen game exhibitions, including appearances from some very special guests all the way from Japan :)
-One final note—we have an, um… special opportunity for some brave fans to win some great prizes, but to participate, you’ll want to bring a change of clothes—clothes you don’t mind having potentially destroyed :)

TCM Classsic Film Festival hits LA on the 22-25

Multiple classics will be screened at different theaters aroud Hollywood. Check the schedule as individual tickets will be sold only the night of shows. See they want you to buy passes that cost hundreds of dollars instead of just getting individual tickets. 20 bucks for a show a half of for students.

I suggest some ... damn there all pretty good. Any film student or writer should check out any of the movies. In fact anyone around should enjoy theses classics. Don't think just cause there classics there's no violence. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is playint, too. The restored Metropolis seems nice and the early horror movie The Day of the Triffids seems like fun choices. A rare collection of cartoons that are very racist ,Removed from Circulation: A Cartoon Collection seems like a good bet to see with friends who have grown beyond that said racism.
