Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Now that lunch is but a dim memory and beer o' clock is still hours away, you need something to distract you from the grinding horror that is your work day. May we humbly suggest Auditorium, a beautiful, trippy music game that you can play in your browser? The object is simple, to fill the audio meters by redirecting streams of "particles" to intersect with them. The execution is entrancing, as there are nearly infinite ways to accomplish your goal and getting there is definitely half the fun. And the music it makes is nice, kind of an ambient quasi-classical piece. Fire it up, and watch the rest of your day slip away -- just keep a spreadsheet or something open in another window for some quick tab switching in case the boss walks by. -- Cory Casciato

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
