Whenever I see those ball pits for children, I always worry that they'll accidentally bring together three or more balls of the same color and get a combo, causing the balls to disappear until the ball pit is empty.  Thanks Bubble Bobble!

I haven't played any Dead Rising for a long while. But a few nights ago I was standing by my bed looking at my dog, and I said, "Come on."

I expected her to take that as meaning "get on the bed," which she can only do by jumping onto my chair at the foot of it to reach it. Instead, she walked straight towards me, and I immediately thought, "No, you dumb dog, no! Wrong way! Oh right, I have to set waypoints so the AI knows to make her jump onto the chair to get up there."

Well dogs may be pretty dumb but they're not as stupid as Dead Rising 1 NPCs

There's this jazz standard that I think of from time to time, called What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life.  Listen to the first 52 seconds.

Whenever I hear it, I always think of Marble Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog:

Does this kind of bleedthrough ever happen to you, where you hear a song and immediately think of a video game piece?

Depends... there's those freak-coincidence soundalikes like "Never Gonna Give You Up" and Robo's Theme, of course, but then there's also brief chord progressions and certain "styles" of song as well that do it. Still, The Cosmic Observatory in SMG had to have been based on "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes" from Cinderella.

I was just playing a PC came and thought it had good atmosphere.  It really sounded like rain.  In the second chapter I took a wrong turn and died revealing that it was raining outside in real life.

I watched the yogscast Let's Play of Hitman: Absolution. Thankfully the only thing that happens to me is whenever I'm in a supermarket, I see the "Hide" context sensitive icon appear whenever I'm near objects of interest.

If I start seeing trails of fire where people are about to walk, that's when I'll start being worried.

I was fastening an outlet cover onto a wall in this room my dad is building, and thought I felt a draft in the corner (probably my imagination, as the outlet was boxed in). My first thought was "there must be a hole or some kind of faulty seam in the collisions somewhere around here"

TEM sends a contribution to this thread from China.

TEM sez:

The official EXIT sign in China looks almost identical to the EXIT sign in Portal 2 and everyday I see it thirty, forty, maybe even fifty times and the bleed through is so constant, so cutting, that I imagine portals appearing in the subway, in the mall that my work is located in, and every other structure in Beijing that I might happen to enter.

I was walking through a mall today and I heard breathy saxophone music coming from a store and my brain freaked out.

In other news, Pikmin 3 is having the usual Pikmin-effect of making miscellaneous garbage on the street really, really eyecatching.

I've been playing Postal 2 lately. It's this really polarizing game where you just have to accomplish mundane (if occasionally surreal) tasks on a to-do list in a nowhere town in Arizona, and while doing so are encouraged to kill innocents, police officers and Gary Coleman with the guns and other weapons you can find. It's either loved or hated depending on whether the player is okay with fake violence taken to its logical extreme--if killing everyone isn't crossing the line, you can also pee on anyone, living or dead...

So anyway I was driving today and passed two dead cats on the road and thought, "How did they die, I haven't already been here today"

After playing Fortix 2 I drove a slightly different route to take my daughter to tutoring and thought, "If I drive back around the other way I can capture this area." 

BTW, I've enjoyed Fortix better than expected based on the reviews, but I have a little nostalgia from playing Qix on Atari 5200 when I was a kid.

BP's story is bleedthrough in both a literal and figurative sense.

The floor in my house's kitchen has been removed because there was a leak and it needs to be replaced. Until it is, this old china cabinet has been moved to the adjacent laundry/misc kitchen-related storage room.

I was cooking a couple weeks ago and needed some allspice. I couldn't find it in the kitchen and remembered it was in the laundry room last time I needed it, so I went back there. The china cabinet was in the way so I pushed it from the side. Then I hear a noise exactly like a giggling ghost from Luigi's Mansion coming from the other side. It was the door opening and creaking, but it spooked me.
