What if real life was like posting on the web? Actually, this really makes me want to shout “pwn3d” during business meetings.

This is an amazing video that everyone who uses the internet needs to watch. Henry Rollins = Hero.
“In the career mode, you can rise from playing in park gazebos for church picnics to performing in the halftime show of the Harvard-Yale game,” Hendleman said. “If you score enough points, you can unlock the ultimate level: playing in the John Philip Sousa–led Marine Band at Grover Cleveland’s inauguration.”
“And if you like multiplayer gaming, you’re in luck,” Hendleman continued. “In Sousaphone Hero’s cooperative marching-band mode, as many as 135 of your friends can play simultaneously.”
Hendleman also emphasized the “fun” rewards players receive as they become more proficient. If they hit enough correct notes in a row, the on-screen crowd yells “huzzah” and “bully,” and the sousaphone controller’s spit valve will “drain.” Flubbing notes, however, makes the controller “fill” with spit, preventing further play and causing the crowd to throw rotten eggs at the hapless on-screen sousaphonist. If characters earn enough bonus points in career mode, they can spend their Liberty-head nickels on a red, green, or blue “sock” for their sousaphone’s bell, or an invigorating chunk of peanut brittle.
I’m getting addicted to this game. The idea is simple: you and your computer opponent each choose a word and then try to guess the other’s word. After each guess you find out the number of letters that you guessed correctly. Sounds simple and little goofy, but it turns out to be very engrossing.
