Marathon Free and for Windows

Most people have not heard of Bungie’s prequel to Halo.  In 1994, marathon was released for macintosh computers.  The next year, they released the sequel Marathon 2: Durandal, and the following year, Marathon Infinity.  Marathon is a great FPS, it still holds up fairly well today, even 15 years after its release.  The best part it, its free now.  You can download Marathon from bungie along with a program that makes it run with windows.

Marathon Trilogy Download on

Aleph One, the program that makes it run on windows

Marathon on windows for beginners – A great article explinging how to set up marathon on windows, also includes the manuals to these games.

I hope you enjoy the game, expect a full review when I beat it!


Fun things to do on a College Campus

In 8 Days, I start my freshman year at UNA.  I am so excited.  So to celebrate, here is a list of fun things to do at a college campus.  (I really needed to write another Fun Things list anyways)

  1. If the school has live mascots (mine has 2 lions), set them free.  If caught explain that it was a metaphor that students should not be confined by the standards of conventinal wisdom, but that each man should choose his own route to enlightenment….then start laughing like a demonic schoogirl.
  2. Sneak into people’s dorm rooms and leave a little chocolate candy on their pillow….
  3. ….or better yet, pour chocolate syrup on their pillow.
  4. During the Big Game, while everyone else is singing the school’s fight song, you sing CGNU’s fight song.
  5. Have an impromptu yodeling contest in the library.
  6. Three words: pet ostrage races!
  7. When a freshman comes up to you asking for directions, scream “Stranger Danger” and run away.
  8. Start a rap war with a complete stranger.
  9. Pretend to be the world’s youngest professor of french philosophy.  Hold regular classes.
  10. Come to the math building bringing, a siamese cat with a siamese twin, weird al, a skateboard, a rope, and 4 pounds of cow dung….use your imagination.
  11. Come to your classes dressed as a clown!
  12. On a test, answer all the questions with Strong Bad quotes.
  13. Paint the grass on the football stadium pink.
  14. Invent a new type of math that includes marshmallows, pizza, and videogames in the equations….hold regular classes.
  15. Merge the class in #14 and the class in #9, call it french dude trigolosopy.
  16. Insist that the college grant you Sabbatical.
  17. Hold a concert on the roof of the dorm bulding.  Can’t sing or play insturments, you say?  Who cares!  Just give it your best shot!

Sometimes you want to go, where everybody knows your username...
