My picks on Bullseye: Blocksworld and Adventure Time Encyclopaedia

On the latest episode of Bullseye with Jesse Thorn I recommended the iPad app Blocksworld and The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia.

Mark Frauenfelder is the founder of Boing Boing, which bills itself as a "directory of wonderful things." He joins us to share some of his recent finds.

This time, it's The Adventure Time Encyclopedia and the iPad game Blocksworld.

The Cartoon Network's show Adventure Time is ostensibly for children, but eagerly devoured by people of all ages. It follows the psychedelic adventures of a boy named Finn and his dog Jake. The new Adventure Time Encyclopedia, "translated" by comedy writer Martin Olson, features new original artwork and everything you ever wanted to know about the post-apocalyptic land of Oooo. Mark also suggests downloading the Blocksworld app for iPad, a virtual Lego-like world with huge creative possibilities.

In the latest episode of Bullseye with Jesse Thorn I talked about the graphic novel Good Dog and the iPhone version of the Russian card game Durak, called Super Durak. (Durak means idiot in Russian. There's no winner in the card game, just a loser - the durak.)
