It’s no secret how much I love the snow up here in the frozen north. (Like, not at all.) But here’s a blissful alternative.
Rich Vreeland over at Colorcave has created “January,” an experiment in algorithmic music generation that is also a sweet little game. The object of the game is very simple: you try to catch snowflakes on your tongue. There’s no counter, no time limit, no penalty for missing them. The reward for catching them, though, is delightful. It’s sweet, relaxing, and it doesn’t turn gross five minutes after it starts.
I read about it first over at IFC.com where they post cool things. Go play in the snow, y’all.
