Sauerbraten [a.k.a. Cube 2]

Sauerbraten (a.k.a. Cube 2) is a free, open source, both multi & singleplayer first person shooter game. It was built as a major redesign of it's predecessor the Cube by Lee Salzman, Wouter van Oortmerssen (the original creator), Mike Dysart & Robert Pointon. Just like in the original game, the main emphasis falls not on the pretty graphics & load of functions, but on seamless and dynamic in-game map/geometry editing. In the latest version of Sauerbraten gamers playing together online can even co-edit a level at the same time.

NWPUNKROCK: 30 plus years of punk in the northwest [2007]

"NWPUNKROCK" is a indie documentary showcasing the last 30 plus years of punk in the northwest - from Vancouver, BC to Olympia, Wa and Seattle. It's not an expensive, full blown production, but rather a labor of love and passion for punk music that deserves some recognition. As Dave, the films producer says, it is not an attempt to showcase every band to ever exist, but show a cross section of a little bit of every era. You will find lots of interesting interviews from bands and musicians separated by plenty of rare concert footage - it is a very raw look at the history of punk in the northwest.
