Pat Kiernan Loves Tetris

Imagine our surprise this week to receive an anonymous letter from NY1's Pat Kiernan. See below.

I do find it a bit strange, though, that Pat's handwriting is almost identical to my mom's...

Our Giant Mick Jagger Poster, Exposed!

There's been some interest in the giant Mick Jagger poster hanging above GPT's famous couch. Well, the mystery is about to be revealed, because here is a close-up of the poster in all its glory.
Want more Mick? Check out his amazing dance moves and terrible lip-syncing (and purple leotard) in the video of "Start Me Up." Enjoy!

What does "Critical" mean to you.

Remember those days during adolescence when you'd be rocking out to a Radiohead or Ani Difranco song and suddenly some nonchalant lyric or phrase would overwhelm you with that shocking inspirational yet simple truth that, yes "someone out there understands."

Well, today, between 8:30 and 9:00pm, girlsplaytetris experienced one of these revelatory moments offered by the hit adult cartoon, 'Family Guy.'

I hope this speaks to you the way it did to us:

Tetris Tees

Do you know why the girl in that photo is so happy? Because she loves tetris!! A hearty thank you to GPT fan Jess M. for finding these tetris themed t-shirts!

Readers Respond to Girls Play Tetris

There's been some more complaints recently that GPT is straying too far from the topic of tetris, to seemingly unrelated areas such as baseball and seltzer. Unable to deal with this negative feedback, I've decided to include some glowing comments from loyal readers.

"U guys r funny!"
- Nechama Y.

"I dream of tetris also."
- Raven B.

"Love your blog, it's really well written and insightful!"
- Tasha F.

"I like how your tetris drawing has actual pieces."
- Craig L.

"Very entertaining. How much time do you spend playing tetris daily??"
- Rachel B.

"Thanks for opening my eyes to a whole new world of spiritual possibility."
- Dali L.

"Get a job."
- my mom

18 Days To Go!

The countdown to Yankees Opening Day has begun here at GPT, and after yesterday's run in between the Yanks and the Devil Rays, we're getting pretty excited! We don't consider ourselves violent people, but there's nothing quite like a good bench-clearing fight at a baseball game. Exhibit A:
See you in the Bronx!

Selzter: The Offical Beverage of GPT

There's nothing quite like a tall glass of seltzer to help you get through those critical moments in a game of tetris, which is why seltzer is the official drink of choice for Girls Play Tetris (don't worry, we recycle all the bottles). So raise your glass and help us toast the Best Drink Ever! L'chaim!

Stop Copying Us, New York Times!

The NYT is at it again, and this time they're plagiarizing none other than Girls Play Tetris. Does this photo look familiar???

In their recent article about political bloggers in DC, the Times points out how novel it is that all theses guys live together and sit around with their computers. How original. I'm pretty sure we were the first ones to come up with the idea of roommates sitting on a couch with laptops. Just replace those three nerdy blogging dudes with three cute girls in Brooklyn and you've basically got Girls Play Tetris. Plus we have a nicer couch. And a giant Mick Jagger poster.

Scrabble v. Tetris: A Fight to the Finish

I may be superior at playing Scrabble than tetris, but that doesn't change my loyalty to the Best Game Ever. Do I have a blog completely devoted to Scrabble? No. So it really hurts me when people have the audacity to say that online Scrabble is the new tetris. To begin with, Scrabble is much more fun when played in real life, while tetris can only be played in the digital world. I'm excited that all the Word Nerds out there have found a new outlet, but that doesn't mean they should overlook a video game classic just because all the cool kids are playing Scrabulous.
