I’ve been so busy recently that I haven’t yet finished campaign mode on Halo 4, but I’m gradually making my way through all of the missions. One weapon that I have yet to stumble onto (other than in Infinity multiplayer mode) this time is the classic energy sword.
Remember the classic Pixar animated clip, Luxo, Jr.? You know, the one with the pair of articulating Anglepoise lamps playing around, and shown with the Pixar logo at the beginning of their flicks? Well, in the latest occurrence of life imitating art imitating life, some guys have actually built an animatronic lamp that moves around like the one in the movies.
A while back, I found some lamps that were pretty reminiscent of the ghosts from Pac-Man. However, they weren’t officially-licensed, and they looked really cheaply made. On the other hand, these new Pac-Man lamps are totally official, plus they look like they’re well built and have a few other tricks up their sleeves.
I was always pretty good at the Tony Hawk: Pro Skater games, pulling off mad combo moves thanks to generous use of manuals between tricks. Unfortunately, the second I hop on a real skateboard, forget about it.
Have a bunch of old 3.5″ floppy disks lying around? If you still have some left over after converting them into paintings or handbags, you might want to redecorate your room with a floppy disk lampshade.
With the exception the occasional lighting fixture at IKEA, most cool modern lights are ridiculously overpriced for what they are. Here’s a case where you can get your hands on a cool accent light that looks amazing, and costs just 20 bucks.
Sometimes, looks matter. Don’t get me wrong, because functionality should always be the main concern. But when that part’s done and over with, aesthetics also play a role in how it impacts people’s lives.
Are you the hardcore military type? Are you out in the field so often doing special ops missions, that you feel more at home with military grade equipment than you do everyday objects? If so, you’ll want to check out the Andromeda Tactical Lamp.
Remember that oldies song “Bus Stop“ by The Hollies? It basically tells the story of two strangers who meet at the bus stop, share an umbrella, and end up getting together because of their bus stop meetings.
You can find all kinds of lamps these days – anything to suit just about any taste and style. Large lamps. Small lamps. But none of them hold a candle to a Pooping dog lamp. This is the only lamp that leaves a non-steaming pile behind it while you are reading by it’s light.
