Les Paul & Mary Ford – There’s No Place Like Home

while i'm sure les paul is nowhere near the best guitarist EVAH, his name is on the guitar, so that's gotta be worth something (also, mary ain't no slouch herself). here's some fun riffing between les and mary from way back.

Game 103 – Twins 9, Rangers 8

This is horribly late, my apologies for that. Great game for the boys last night. Pavano pitched a real stinker, but the bats kept the boys in the game. Watching them make Feliz look like Matt Capps was a sweet, sweet bonus. A Rangers fan was riding me hard on Monday night, and told me to "let him know when Mauer hits something other than a single," so there was a little extra in my fist pump when Mauer stroked that double into left.

Nathan looks filthy, and it makes me happy. I hope he takes sole possession of being All Time King of Savers: Twins Division tonight so meat has that to write about tomorrow.

Pixel Perfect Memories: Fire ‘N Ice

Release Date:  March, 1993
System:  NES
Developer:  Tecmo

Known in Japan as Solomon Key's 2, Fire 'N Ice is so good that if you liked Solomon's Key, you'll probably hate it after playing its sequel.  You play as Dana, the same hero from the first game.  You also still have the ability to create and destroy blocks.  Eliminated from this game is all the magic, secrets, moving enemies, and treasures.  Most importantly, eliminated are the arbitrary clock and play control issues.

Back to the blocks.  As Dana, you create blocks of ice.  You destroy blocks of ice.  You slide blocks of ice.  That's it.  Your job is to destroy the stationary flames on each level.  Despite its simplicity, the immense strategy involved is enough to make the game consistently challenging and interesting over approximately 100 levels.

If you like The Adventures of Lolo games or Bubble Bobble, it'd be difficult to imagine you wouldn't like this one as well.  The cartridge is rare, as it was produced late in the NES's life and wasn't very popular.  But it's the kind of game that is just as enjoyable during emulation.

I've played Angry Birds for a couple days now and I'm already kind of bored with it.  I come back to Fire 'N Ice every couple years and play through it again.

Whatcha playin?
