It may not be freezing in your part of the world this month – but, if not, you can create some big flakes with a terrific Flash movie called The Little Snow Globe.
After a few seconds while the animation loads, you see a group of children playing as the white stuff falls gently around them. Simply hold down your mouse button as you “shake” the globe. The snow flies, as well as the children, who perhaps should have put on their seat belts before you rocked their little world.
I don’t know which is more sickly: the whole concept, or the Christmas tune that plays in the background while you do this. If you watch for a minute or so, the kids build a snowman, which then gobbles one of them up. It’s funny as heck, if you’re in the mood for offbeat humor. It’s a production of E-tractions, a group of more than a dozen online technology specialists in Bedford, Mass. See the movie
