Well this is pretty cool. Before Matt Groening had his Sunday night Fox TV shows under his belt, he needed a side job to pay the bills. He paired up with Apple to make a student’s guide titled “Who Needs a Computer Anyway.”
Ah, Mondays. Thankfully, we’re already Tuesday, so heck, Monday went by pretty fast. Still, I don’t really like Mondays. I really like Fridays, how about you guys?
This funny animated gif is from Futurama, and if you haven’t watched the new episodes on the Comedy Central, you should.
For some reason, I don’t remember The Shining playing out exactly this way. But then again, I had to close my eyes once the blood started pouring out of the elevator and that wrinkly naked lady showed up.
Loaded with awesome cartoon-style animations and tons of blood, gore and violence, Klei Entertainment’s Shank looks like it could be a whole lot of fun.
Not only does the game look awesome, it was written by Marianne Krawczyk, who wrote God of War.
Did you ever stop to think about what Super Mario’s life was really like? He goes around stomping on anthropomorphic mushrooms and turtles all day, but is that the whole story? Looks like this webcomic from Maneggs has got the answer and it ain’t pretty.
Caldwell Tanner is a cartoonist for College Humor and he made this great little cartoon comparing the different browsers to their equivalent modes of transportation…
I found this hilarious, especially when I saw what he chose to represent Firefox.
Back before I was a full time geek, I had a real job in an office where I had to actually work and put up with a boss I always suspected was a bit deranged. Most of us have had jobs where we really didn’t like the boss or had coworkers that we wanted to punch.
I haven’t heard of Robot Taekwon V up until now, but I think he’s about to become a lot more famous because of South Korea’s soon-to-be-built robot-themed amusement park, Robot Land. The park will have a statue of the 70s cartoon hero (who was known as Voltar the Invincible in the US).
What would happen if Pac-Man was on twitter? A whole lot of trouble, that’s what.
I laughed my ass off when I saw this hysterical illustration by Scott Hampson. Scott, will you please make T-shirts out of these?
Ok, how’s this for a concept? Take two moody lovers on a park bench. Put them inside your iPhone or iPod Touch. Shake them vigorously. Watch the sparks fly.
Yep, that’s the idea behind interactive artist Eric Loyer’s new iPhone app, Ruben & Lullaby.
While Bioshock was one of the darkest and bone-chilling games I’ve ever played, this recent gamer fan art somehow manages to make those creepy Little Sisters just a little less imposing.
This Anime Bioshock illustration by Shuugo envisions the little sisters with those bright Anime saucer eyes, making them look more curious than ominous.
While I’m not a huge fan of many of those old full-motion-video (FMV) games, I have to keep a place in my heart for Space Ace, a surprisingly entertaining FMV laserdisc-based game created by some of the industry’s most respected animators.
This USB hub out of Japan features the (approximate) likeness of everyone’s favorite animated rodent, Mickey Mouse.
When not attached to your computer, the connectors provide Mickey with his ears. When connected though, the Vincent van Mouse look is a bit disturbing.
