While You Were Sleeping

I've been using that awesome iOS app, 'Sleep Cycle', which sort of tracks exactly how I've been sleeping. The verdict: rubbish. I'm awake more often than I sleep. So, I'm thinking about changing this to 'While You Were Sleeping But I Was Sort Of Awake'. Not quite as catchy...

I think this is worth reading, particularly as Mass Effect 3 is nearing release. For the first time in a Mass Effect game, it is possible for Commander Shepard to be a gay man. Whether you think this is a canon breaking choice, or you have no problem with it whatsoever, it's definitely worth checking out this story for the reasons why this choice was made.

The PS Vita has sold 1.2 million units worldwide. Pretty solid numbers considering the cost of the device. Maybe handhelds aren't dead and buried after all.

This is our SSX review. I havve a copy of the game here, still unwrapped. I'm looking forward to checking it out. Oh, and HD Jet Set Radio -- yes please -- also these guys cover every song from A Link to the Past.

    I think that app is snake oil. I was another of the people who bought it, but could never get it to work. Maybe it was because I never calibrated it correctly. Maybe it's because my wife sleeping in the same bed throws it out. OR MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE IT'S A SCAM!!

    Meanwhile the creators are laughing all the way to the bank.

    Man, I'm so jealous. I wish I could make a fortune of something simple and cheap and unverifiably rubbish like this...

      Yeah, I don't understand how something works (like the world being round) so it MUST BE a scam.

        Hmm, not quite. I understand the theory, and I'm sure it works in controlled situations, but I'm not convinced that the iPhone app works.

        There are no measurable results, so the pure placebo effect of using it may be enough to make a difference to some people. If so, awesome! Though the cynic in me says that a social media marketing team with google alerts set up can do a lot to spread an aura of success. Maybe even on this page?

        But none of this changes the possibility that the app is a scam that the creators know doesn't work correctly. And dammit, I wish I could come up with something like that!

    Nice While You Were Sleeping, dude-man. Or, like, While You Don’t Get No Sleep!

    Maybe you could use that Faithless song as like the inspiration for the title instead of the movie. Or like No Sleep till Brooklyn. You’ll think of something, I know you will.

    But do you know in the While You Were Sleeping movie where Lucy and Jack talk about the Three Stooges and it’s all like in your face like this:

    Jack: Which of the Three Stooges was Peter's favorite?
    Lucy: Curly.
    Jack: Curly. HA!
    [pause]
    Jack: He's everybody's favourite.
    Saul: I like Shemp.

    But I don’t think Shemp was even one of the original Stooges. I mean, he was one of the brothers in real life. But he wan’t an original cast member.

    We were just having the conversation at the Busby Berkeley Dramatic Society. It’s like, I think, why would you pick Shemp?

    I’m not saying Shemp wasn’t good, I’m not saying that at all. But, you know, maybe pick one of the original cast members.

    You don’t have to or anything.

    Sometimes it’s difficult when they replace one of the original cast members.

      Please, Fordsworth,
      Shemp Howard was a highly regarded actor, he starred in a very many feature films throughout his career. He was bigger than the 3 Stooges and, if anything, the 3 Stooges were lucky to have him.

      I didn't mean to say he was bigger than the 3 Stooges, that was unnecessary. I simply feel - as one of the Howard Brothers - Shemp was inherently Stooge-esque.

        THEN WHY DON'T YOU USE SLEEP CYCLE AND DREAM ABOUT SHEMP HOWARD IF YOU LIKE HIM SO MUCH!!

          Please, Fordsworth, I don't want to make a scene.

            nobody would pick Shemp, is all.

              . . . yes they would; he was very Stooge-esque and a Howard brother - no less.

    i love sleep cycle, everytime i use it i wake up feeling good, as opposed to the horrible feeling of being awaken by a alarm mid dream

    Yeah I just started using sleep cycle, waking up to it makes you feel awesome, they should specify it only works for singles (or those who sleep alone) because it can only tell when one person is in the bed, other then that its awesome!
    Oh thats not what this page is about? oh ok...... YAY ZELDA SONGS!!

    I found this app quite good at first, but since I usually only fit in just enough time for sleep, an app that wakes me up slightly early each day had the side effect of slowly grinding my sleep down.

    If I slept over the amount I needed per day, it would be great D:
