Rockabye Baby!

Monday, June 30th, 2008

By way of Lucretius: “Our award-winning series transforms timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabyes.” They’ve got a huge list of albums. I’m looking at at least one of you out there with a weakness for xylophone.

One hundred years ago today…

…was the Tunguska explosion in Russia. If you’re fond of tinfoil-hat/crackpot theories, there’s some fun reading to be done related to this event, most especially (in my opinion) in regards to how Tesla may have caused it.

Oh, look. Diablo 3.

Alternately, “ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG DIABLO 3 OMG OMG-” until I pass out from hyperventilating like a fangirl. Gameplay videos one and two. Official site is in the link, but I haven’t been able to get it load yet. Oh, man. Please don’t fuck this up, Blizz. We have been waiting so damn long.

Gizmodo visits a Lego Cathedral.

Friday, June 27th, 2008

By way of dG: “Without a doubt, the Lego brick storage buildings were the most impressive part of my visit to Lego. When I first saw their 65.6-foot high ceilings, with multiple giant robots going up and down retrieving boxes full of bricks, I felt like I entered the Matrix.”

Extreme Trombone Quartet

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

Szabolcs Horváth, Tamás Diószegi, Róbert Stürzenbaum, and Norbert Zakó Norbert play Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. Trombones are one of my least favourite instruments, typically, but this makes me reconsider…at least for the duration of the video.

Shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits.

George Carlin has died.

Requiem For A Day Off

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

Things like this justify the continued existence of the internet. GO NOW. I wonder if The Breakfast Club has ever had this sort of treatment…

Wait, I thought we’d buried image rollovers.

Monday, June 16th, 2008

Yet here I am, staring at an interface full of guide lines in Photoshop. How very 2001 of me. I patted down the Internet in hopes that rollovers got a little less annoying during my sabbatical, and it seems they actually may have. There are two or three pages in Google devoted to CSS image [...]

Well, that’s the last dumb thing THAT leg will ever do.

Monday, June 16th, 2008

Previous owner of said leg forgets that gravity and momentum exist, and decides to kick a concrete slat out of a wall.

Boom Blox may be hazardous to your triceps.

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

It would appear that the Fabulous Boymeat and I are either children or an entire family, because that’s who Boom Blox is supposed to be fun for. We picked it up a couple days ago, and have played it every evening since. It’s Jenga meets Breakout meets the simple love of throwing things at other [...]

Better late than…

LONDON – Prince Charles has paid off a royal debt from the 17th century. [...] The payment of 453 pounds and three shillings, or about $900, was made yesterday during a visit to Worcester by Charles and his wife Camilla. The debt was incurred in 1651 when king Charles II was preparing for the Battle [...]

Well, I guess he’s not ALL bad.

Students who endured abuse and torment in Canada’s residential schools will finally get a formal apology from the Canadian government on Wednesday, a prospect that has many feeling a mix of emotions. A decade ago, the Canadian government acknowledged the physical and sexual abuse that occurred in the now-defunct network of federally financed, church-run residential [...]

My plants are growing.

Friday, June 6th, 2008

This shouldn’t be post-worthy — I mean, that’s what seeds are supposed to do, once you’ve plant them — but my thumb is more black than green. About the only things I can’t kill are my mother’s Mystery Green Plant(tm) and my jade plant — which, upon checking Wikipedia for a link, I discover I’ve [...]

Big Ideas (Don’t Get Any)

Friday, June 6th, 2008

“Radiohead held an online contest to remix ‘Nude’ [...] I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.” Sinclair ZX Spectrum – Guitars (rhythm & lead) Epson LX-81 Dot [...]

Some amazing contact juggling.

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

By way of Monsieur Invictus, and well worth seeing — the guy is phenomenal. I think it’s made even better by the goombah commentors insisting it has to be cgi because the ball is clearly defying gravity.
