Christmas on Mars: The Video Game
I haven't seen the new Flaming Lips movie Christmas on Mars yet (I'm saving it for the next time I go on an ether binge) but if this bizarre Flash game the band is using to promote the film is any indication, it's going to be a hell of a weird ride. In the game, you launch blobs of what could be brains from your fists at approaching Martianized Wayne Coyne heads. If any of the heads rach you, you're done. It's akin to Space Invaders in terms of complexity and gameplay, but akin to that time you accidentally ate a box of Dramamine for weirdness. --Cory Casciato
