(image) One player becomes the body of a bunny - this is done by holding both arms in front of your chest, elbows touching your rib cage, and letting hands hang. Her 2 neighbors become the `ears` of the bunny, by waving a hand next to the middle player`s ears. All 3 say `bunny bunny bunny` together, until the middle player `throws` a `bunny` to another player in the circle. This player becomes the bunny body, and his neighbors get to do the ears.

“Most of us yearn to be fully alive. Having fun is a means to do it.”

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 11:04:57 +0000


(image) The article is called "Who Stole Fun." Much of the article focuses on a phenomenon with which we are far too familiar: the "commodification of fun." Which manifests itself as "want to have fun? buy this."

Hidden Folks – the game

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 11:11:08 +0000


(image) Hidden folks is funny enough, challenging enough, different enough that you might even consider it a good enough reason, if you don't already have a big screen, to get one.

New Slang

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 11:11:54 +0000


(image) Skrunky
Great as a food descriptor when around insufferable foodie types.
Used in a sentence: I love how this salad dressing is just a little skrunky — it makes me think of my time in Tibet, with the gurus.

Recess for the Soul on Youtube

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 11:13:29 +0000


(image) From my CD "Recess for the Soul" The first track: "On the one hand there’s nobody there but you. On the other, for example, when you’re just sitting there thinking about nothing in particular, there’s the distinct impression that there’s at least one other you there: the you you think is doing the thinking, and the you you think you’re thinking about."

Twenty Answers

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 11:13:07 +0000


(image) Twenty Answers is actually an easy game to understand, and a delightfully mind-altering game to play - just having to think of a new word with each "no" answer, that still fits all the other "no" answers.

On Being Funny Together

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 11:13:44 +0000


(image) Funny has a light-hearted feel to it. And I like that feel, a lot. Because, I guess, of the pun of it all. Light-hearted. Like a heart that is filled with light. Or a heart that is relieved of the weightiness of things.

Of Fun and Unfun

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 11:13:45 +0000


(image) The fun of doing anything, pursuing any work, any art, begins with you confronting the unfun, and ends with the gift of true, genuine, profound, encompassing, truly deep fun.

Yarn Bombs and Pussy Hats – Weapons of a Playful Protest

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 11:09:23 +0000


(image) There's anger and fear, greed and corruption, none of which can be denied, all of which needs to be resisted, demonstrated against - until their playfulness can weave it all back, transform their own anger into yarn bombs and pussy hats.

All Games Are Cooperative (cont’d)

(image) the victory that you attain across the set of all games isn't winning all the games: it's being invited to play.

Can we Make America FUN Again?

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 10:58:25 +0000


(image) We don't really need much imagination, nor do we need much more legislation to make America Fun Again. What we need is to take a closer look at the schools and playgrounds that allow our kids to feel free, safe, secure, healthy, engaged, listened to, appreciated - and follow their lead.

Why Science Needs Imagination and Beauty

Wed, 25 Jan 2017 11:12:53 +0000


(image) We’re trying to think of better ways to solve the equations, which takes a lot of imagination because they describe an unfamiliar world – it’s a very small world and things behave differently in it.
