Bonus gaming: I just finished playing Little Inferno and enjoyed it immensely. I played it on the iPad (see review), but I think there's a PC version as well as a Wii-ish version.
Bonus music: Boston vs the Black-Eyed Peas, "I Got More Than A Feeling". From Best of Bootie 2009. The sort of fun I'm looking for when I look for mashups.
Even more music: My favorite trance broadcast is Aly & Fila's Future Sound of Egypt, now available as a free podcast on iTMS. Nothing too abstract or tech-y here, just the mostly-uplifting trance sound they are known for. Good work music.
Bonus reading: My train reading just now is KJ Bishop's The Etched City. So far thumbs up.
