Headcandy

A screensaver with a college degree, Headcandy matches six spacey Brian Eno instrumentals with zizzy, roiling psychedelic graphics. Sure, this is swell to look at, but for the animations to play to maximum effect, you have to shut down everything else on your computer, turn out the lights, and cancel the newspaper. As for the prismatic glasses that come with the package, they're good mostly for your coworkers' amusement when they see you making like Randy of the Redwoods in front of your monitor. An excellent party toy, nevertheless. B-
