Evening Reading - April 5, 2023

Catch up on everything you might've missed on Shacknews today, and enjoy some fun finds from around the net!


It’s Wednesday evening once more my friends which means it’s time for a little Evening Reading! If you’re new to our Evening Reading features, they’re a great way to quickly catch up on everything posted to Shacknews that day while also checking out some fun and interesting finds from around the net. With that being said, let’s jump right into the Evening Reading for Wednesday, April 5!

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

And now, other stuff from the internet!

Columbo on Steam Deck


Margit vs. Bop It

Well, that's one way to do it.

Green Shell

Heated competition.

Original Tetris

A cool experience worth checking out for Tetris fans.

I Think You Should Leave as Poe stories

This thread is absolutely brilliant. 

Journey's embrace


Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice art

Fantastic use of color.

Starbucks cat

Coolest barista ever.


One of my favorites of the Barbie posts on social this past week. 


Another favorite, had to share this one as well.

Silly boi

So silly.

Across the Spider-Verse

New trailer! 

No barking

I need to do this with my cats, but with a sign that tells them to stop stealing my chair. 



A moment's rest


Music corner

Here are a few more tracks that have been frequent plays for me lately, starting with this beautiful track featuring Kx5, deadmau5, Kaskade, and AR/CO. 

Hold On Tight

I'm still reeling from the fact that not only did aespa do a song for the Tetris film, it also incorporates the classic Tetris theme music. Seriously cool track, 10/10, no notes. 

Days Go By

Got back into this track recently, though it was one I really enjoyed back when I was a teenager. I also remember it was used in a Mitsubishi Eclipse commercial, so bonus points for that as well.
