Crashed Ice is now video game!

Red Bull Crashed Ice is now a video game.

The downhill-ice-skating event, which was a downtown-St. Paul sensation last winter and returns this winter, has inspired an Xbox Live Arcade title that makes use of the Kinect motion-sensing gear.

I filmed myself playing the game (badly) and put together this video, which includes live Crashed Ice footage shot by Ben Garvin of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Julio's bookshelf: read

MacArthur at War
liked it
This sweeping account of Gen. Douglas MacArthur's Pacific exploits during World War II is heavy on the minutia but nonetheless thrilling. This isn't an adoring account, either, but a warts-and-all tale.
The Menopause Book
My wife pulled this out and jokingly asked me if I wanted to read it. Challenge accepted. I learned a lot.
The Wedding Heard ’Round the World: America’s First Gay Marriage
really liked it
Decades before Minnesota legalized same-sex marriage, the authors (who are a couple) pushed boundaries. A good read.
Armada
"The Last Starfighter" with a twist, this grabbed me more than the author's earlier, better-known "Ready Player One" (which I never finished).
Everything That Remains: A Memoir by the Minimalists
it was ok
I had a hard time getting through this disjointed narrative. It's in some ways a rehash of the authors' earlier minimalism manual. Not impressed (but I like their blog and podcast).
