EAVESDROPPING
(443): I just realized I haven't had
steady access to a woman's body
since I was breastfeeding.
Pink: Woke up way too early. The
sky is as moody as I. And this cof-
fee tastes like gasoline with a side
of ass. Hahaha grumpy grandma
Today, in the middle of the night,
I was punched in the face by my
FML frightened girlfriend who had just
been awakened by her own fart.

GOOD VIBRATIONS
According to the info box, this app
is supposed to help you "Mak[e] a spir-
it journey in an ecstatic trance," but
"NOW IT'S REALLY FUN!" The app
lets you control the vibrate function of
your Phone with vibration types like
"pulsing," "tease" and "provacateur."
Just don't tell us how you use this thing
- we don't want to know.

High five
A notable Ann Arborite gives five

Barista,Ambrosia
What is your favorite music to listen
to when working the late shift?
1. Blackalicious: It's perfect for getting into work. I know the majority of
BlazingArrow's songs by heart.
2. Boards of Canada: I like something more mellow, more ambient, some-
thing that helps me through the mid-shift and take it easy.
3. Classical: It's upbeat and slow at the same time. It's something that fits in
the background, soit helps time move faster.
4.Andrew Bird: Around the time I start to clean I like to go back to some-
thing with words. It's something I can sing along with.
5. Rage Against the Machine: I want something loud as hell so I can finish
cleaning as soon as possible. It's something to get my adrenaline going.
TRAILER REVIEW
FISH TANK
IFC
"Fish Tank" conjures up images of Catherine Hardwicke's "Thirteen," as a young
teenage girl (newconier Katie Jarvis) struggles to find her place in her metaphori-
cal fish tank, trapped by adult conventions and teenage temptations. The trailer is
big on the anger she feels, and it proves to be a viable showcase for Jarvis's shouting
skills. Asthis year's Cannes Jury Prize Winner, "Fish Tank" is sure to generate some
critical buzz, but the trailer doesn't show anything out ofthe ordinary. Still, coming-
of-age stories never get old, and this should be a strong one.

CYCLOMANIACS
In this manic side-scrolling racer, winning isn't the only
objective. By executing a variety of stunts and challenges, you
can unlock up to 20 playable characters and 26 tracks across
six different worlds. Also, wins and other accomplishments
earn you money, which can be spent on bicycle upgrades. Pull
off some crazy tricks in the midst of a race to trigger your rac-
er's boost and blow away the motley cast of characters against
whom you're racing.

MULTITASK
If you're looking for a less embarrassing reason to say "I last-
ed 84 seconds," try "Multitask." Balancing a ball on a platform:
easy. Doing so while playing three other games at the same
time: Dear God no please make it stop! "Multitask" gradually
introduces four tasks, forcing players to manage multiple sets
for as long as they can last. What starts as a walk in the park
turns quickly into a run through hellfire in this deceptively dif-
ficult, undeniably addictive game.
