The Pipeline: A Pirate's Life For Me In Duke Grabowski, Mighty Swashbuckler!

Sailing the seas in this point and click adventure game.
Back when I was a kid, my friend had a pirate ship. Granted, it was a low-level treehouse that they tossed a Jolly Roger on after their mom found a bunch of discount pirate stuff at the old Dollar Store—but who cares, we were imaginative kids in a landlocked state.

October Gallery Stroll: Peter Everett

A look at the art at CUAC from last Friday's Stroll.
Say what you will about the chill in the air: When it comes to October, people love to get out. That was the case this past Friday night, when practically every place I had a chance to visit was filled with art-loving folks looking at the latest exhibitions for Salt Lake Gallery Stroll.

Downtown Artist Collective

Previewing the latest artistic co-op before their grand opening on Oct. 21
Tonight's Gallery Stroll is probably going to be the last one of the year that won't require a heavy coat and an hourly weather check before going out, making it the last great chance to wander around on foot to see new art. But every month is also an opportunity for a new spot to open up, which is exactly the case for Downtown Artist Collective.

The Pipeline: Finding My Inner Street Warrior In Smash+Grab

A look at the last title from the recently closed United Front Games.
Growing up with basic cable, I had access to a ton of old-school films from the '70s and '80s that were considered hot garbage and fell into syndication. Within the mounds of romantic thrillers and oddball action flicks were some cult classics, and one that stood out to me and many others was The Warriors.

The TNT Show

Getting behind the camera of the geeky news talk webshow.
Geekdom in general is thriving in Utah. So of course when you have a thriving culture, there's going to be a lot of content created in that pool of interest.

The Pipeline: Hello Neighbor Makes Me Question All My Neighbors!

A look into the pre-alpha version of tinyBuild's latest game.
Anyone who has seen the movie Rear Window knows the plight and perils of neighbor paranoia. More than 60 years later, the film still holds up as one of Hitchcock's masterworks, as Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly spy on a neighbor across the way who they believe murdered his wife.
