Mario, as seen on the streets of New York City (on 23rd st between 10th and 11th). I have a funny feeling that whatever is down at the other end of those pipes is a lot less pleasant than the bowels of the Mushroom Kingdom.
Sony unveiled three new “DVD-integrated home theater solutions” this week, the DAV-HDX587WC, the DAV-HDX589W and the DAV-HDX285. No, I did not make those names up. Now I’m sitting here, going back and forth between the 587WC’s and the 589W’s product spec sheets, truly, deeply, sincerely wishing that I made this mess up, because for the life of me I cannot tell the difference between the two.
Crafter/felt baker/goth pastry master ckrolczyk probably got tired of seeing lookalike gingerbread men and set out to redeem the great Gingerbread name with these wacky, felt gingerbread…beings. I would expect no less from someone with a username like ckrolczyk.
If you happen to meet an Indonesian man and you tell him that you like watching TV programs at Hulu, he may tell you that he just likes staring at Hulus. That’s because “Hulu” means “butt” in Indonesian.
Star Wars geeks claim that R2-D2 was inspired by a character in a Kurosawa film plus the robots in Silent Running plus an overheard request from a sound editor. Riiiight. Here’s the real score: In 1975 George Lucas invented a Time Machine and fast forwarded himself to 1999.
Video games make all sorts of activities fun. Cooking Mama makes cooking fun. Harvest Moon makes farming fun. Lode Runner makes self-torture fun. Can a video game make biochemistry fun?
Try DNA Heroes, a flash game that combines Guitar Hero with…well, actually nothing.
Vista users, dust off your IE or Automatic Updates, because next week the Release Candidate of Vista’s Service Pack 2 will be available for download. The update will updowngrade your OS to Windows XP. I’m kidding.
Some of the things contained in the update include – I swear I am not making this up – “Security”, “Reliability, “Performance”, and “Application Compatibility”.
Inspired by a scene from an old British TV sitcom, modder/appliance frankenstein lemonie decided to make a real vhs toaster. He succeeded and failed at the same time. Which is kind of a feat in itself.
That’s the VHS toaster in the background.
Remember the movie Signs? And how the aliens’ weakness turned out to be water? Tell me, if those beings were intelligent enough to build vessels that could cross such vast distances (and sustain the passengers as well), why the hell couldn’t they tell that the planet that they’re attacking is mostly made up of stuff that will kill them?
Overlord:Minions is the Mini-Me of the Overlord franchise. Set to be released this year, it will allow Nintendo DS owners to be evil on the go. Players will have four minions at their disposal, each with unique skills and abilities.
Imagine you’re on a date. You’ve probably done this so many times that you’ve become quite the date-imagining expert. Imagine that the date is going well, and then you excuse yourself to go to the restroom.
I’m not sure how I missed this great video clip when it first hit the Inter-tubes. Maybe I was too busy playing video games. The clip involves a hamster shimmying his way through a maze of dark jagged tunnels in search of an exit (and no, Richard Gere had nothing to do with this).
All I know for sure is that the video is titled Kubbur á hlaupum and was made by some guy(s) in Iceland, and that he/she/they is/are (a) filmmaking genius(es).
If you were to make a cake modeled after a fictional character, you’ll use your favorite character as a model, wouldn’t you? I guess the reverse applies to salads, because someone – someone with mad Force Carving powers – made a Jar Jar Binks salad just because he would “be able to slice into it without remorse.”
So he’s rid himself of remorse.
