Sure, you may know Kramer's first name (Cosmo). You may even know where Jerry's parents live (Florida). But do you know Elaine's IQ (145)—or her shoe size (7½)? How about the Bubble Boy's first name (Donald)? With the online S.A.T (Seinfeld Aptitude Test), you can find out whether you really are the "Master of Your Domain" or a no-nothing "Wuss." The online quiz is taken from the book of the same name by Beth B. Golub (Citadel, $8.95) and consists of multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions. The questions are demanding. During a piano recital, Jerry places what object on Elaine's leg? What color is the defective condom George uses on a blind date? After you've whizzed through the quiz, move on to other Seinfeld trivia, including a complete episode guide, photos and sound clips. Our personal favorite is George's sage observation that "the tomato never really took off as a handfruit." Address: http://www.engr.wisc.edu/~heinj/seinfeld.html
Rising from the dead can be harrowing. The CD-ROM Frankenstein: Through the Eyes of the Monster lets players make the return trip as the beastly creation of Dr. Frankenstein. Tim Curry stars as the demented doctor who resurrects a man wrongfully hanged for the murder of his daughter. Players must uncover cleverly hidden clues to help them escape Castle Frankenstein. Browsing through the laboratory's collection of oddities with eerie background music is half the fun: Read a newspaper account of the execution, learn the pseudoscience of monster building and uncover concealed passageways. Dr. Frankenstein's lair has never been so enticing. (Amazing Media/MacPlay, MAC & PC CD-ROM, $59.99)
HE LAUGHS BEST WHO LAUGHS MANIACALLY
TIM CURRY, FAMED FOR HIS Portrayal of the transvestite Dr. Frank N. Furter in the 1975 Rocky Horror Picture Show, jumped at the chance to play another twisted doctor in the CD-ROM Frankenstein: Through the Eyes of the Monster. But first he had to adjust to acting for the interactive format—without a set or other cast members (scenery and special effects are created separately). "I was on my own," says Curry, 49. "Most of the time I was talking directly to the camera. It is quite strange trying to imagine yourself on a computer screen." Before Frankenstein, the closest Curry had been to a computer was the electronic game he took along last winter while playing a philanthropist who funds an African expedition in the movie Congo. "The director got so bored seeing me there with my Game Boy that he gave me a Sega and told me that he thought it was time for an upgrade," Curry says. But when he returns in July from filming the movie Muppet Treasure Island in London, he plans to use a recently purchased laptop to write a novel. And he would love to portray a wild and crazy guy in a future multimedia project. "I got to do all the stuff that's the most fun to do," Curry says of Frankenstein. "I got to do my maniacal laugh."
