The Star Tribune published an article today about an emerging field of addiction: Video Games. There is a lot of debate about whether video games even qualify as an addiction. Some researchers say video games are just a bad habit . . . but the article sites tales of marriages falling apart and students flunking out of school . . . all because of video game adventures . Sounds like it's a problem either way.

Of course, Internet Addiction has been around for quite some time. Think you might be an addict? . . . If you wanna find out take this test.

With one more LoopCast still between us and the next show, we thought it would be a great opportunity to feature some early cuts from Tony, Angelo, and Dusty -- the artistic guests we had on the show.
