Good Sounds #1 : ILB

Something that has a permenant residence on my iPod is the entire ILoveBees audio collection.

For those who are out of the know, ILoveBees was an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) involving the 'net, a jar of honey, a ton of payphones, and one of the best "radio play" type productions I've ever listened to. The segments of the story were made available in mp3 form over time, first as snippets, then as assembled chapters. The entire point of the excercise was to drum up excitement for the impending release of Halo 2, but it really transcended that aim and became a phenomanon of its own.

The story is quite good, the characters engaging, and the production value outstanding. Think of it as an audiobook...without the book.
