Douglas Adams explains the e-reader in a message to his publishers in 1993.

I’ve always thought that a snarkier, more-interactive version of Wikipedia is a pretty good incarnation of the Hitchhikers Guide.

From Love to Bingo

A short film made entirely of Getty stock photos. Well done.

The Sounds of Aronofsky

A supermix of quick cut sound effects from Aronofsky’s movies. I just finished watching Pi the other day. What a great movie.

Bottle cap blues

A part of for Adam Young’s solo Art Show at Common House Gallery entitled: Songs of the Early Riser. Some of these attempts end better than others.

Epic Slinky on a treadmill

I kept putting off watching this but when I finally got around to it I stayed on for the entire thing. The music is perfect and that intrepid, undaunted Slinky just keeps going and going… forever marching to its destiny. You go little Slinky!

Page Turner Rube Goldberg machine

A nicely executed and intricate machine for turning the morning paper.

Slander by Trash Talk

An animated video for a punk band I’ve never heard of directed and animated by Jim Dirschberger the same guy who worked on Bob’s Burgers.

Dreamer/Dubstep

I’ve posted stuff by this guy before. Ignore all the set up and outro, this guy has some awesome dance moves… and on the Great Wall of China at that. Sweet!

Shit NOBODY Says

Ok. The “Shit _____ Says” phenomenon was overplayed almost immediately, but this pretty much seals the deal. Funniest on I’ve seen since the original.

Spidey vs. the Yeti

I loved these as a kid, and they were some of my first comics I ever owned. There are a ton more of these in related videos.

Self Pop Tart

Filed under: meme — Tags: , , , — Tod @ 9:58 am

I recently stumbled on “Self Pop Tart,” a blossoming meme in which either a Pop Tart is superimposed over the digital device in their self portrait, or – as is more often the case – actually posing with a real Pop Tart. After a little research, I found a treasure trove here:

No info on Know Your Meme yet, but I expect we’ll see it there soon.

Happy 11/11/11/11/11/11 day! Here are some videos for you to enjoy!

The GAG Quartet – le Internet Medley

This band does covers of internet memes because that’s what the internet is for. Well done medley.

First trailer for GTAV

I have no idea what system this is coming out for but I am excited to see more. I loved GTA:SA but I completely skipped playing GTA IV (not only because I didn’t have the correct system, but also because I heard it wasn’t very fun). I like the look of V from this tiny glimpse, but the realism is starting to bother me in my morals a bit perhaps because I’ve become a parent since I last played GTA. The last time I played San Andreas I stole a bike and kept showing off my tricks to the people on the streets. If they didn’t like my tricks, I’d punch ‘em. Then I jumped some cars off some ramps, but the bullet-fueled rampages just weren’t as much fun any more. #getting older :(

Abobo’s Big Adventure

Speaking of games I’m looking forward to, my good pal Roger and his friends put together this loving homage to classic video games staring your favorite Double Dragon baddie and mine, ABOBO (though for the record I’m a bigger fan of Abobo’s green counterpart). This game looks like amazing fun and I will be writing a full review once I’m able to play. Be warned, I suck at video games, so by full review, I probably mean a full review of the first three levels before I get frustrated and give up.

Welcome to Kitty City by Cyriak

Jonah calls the sliding glass doors behind which two extremely fat kitties sit at the other end of our apartment complex “Kitty City” when he rides his tricycle past it. I can only hope that THIS is what it looks like in his imagination.

ASIMO gets a speed boost

Robots are getting faster and are one step closer to being able to do the hokey pokey (and serve drinks afterwards). The future is here!

Arcade Dominator

This guy pwns the arcade like WHOA!

SMACKA SPIDEY (sNSFW?)

Dick smackin’ to the spider-man theme.

50 State stereotypes in 2 minutes

Fun and offensive and so so true!

Robot juggler

Robots make another job obsolete.

Physics presentation involving PONIES!

For all you Bronies out there. If you want to get an A+ on your physics presentation then it’s a good idea to involve ponies! ponies ponies ponies!

Inglorious Ponies

The underground internet fandom of the new My Little Ponies series has led to some interesting mashups. The show on it’s own is also pretty good.

The Last Jump of the General Lee

I loved this show as a kid.

Letter People – Meet Mr. T AKA Tall Teeth

In another flashback from my early schooling Mr. T (not the “pity the fool” one) was my JAM for obvious reasons.

Cat vs Piñata

Get those kibbles!

My Dick

Ok. Enough with the kid stuff. Here’s a song about dicks!

AntIlion’s Flickr lure photobucket.

Filed under: Budge,cool art,F-ed up!,meme,stupid — Tags: , , , , , — Tod @ 7:24 pm

This guy has presumably created an entire catalog of images to post on people’s photos on Flickr so that he can lure them onto his page, which he populates with cliche religious propaganda.

The crudely photoshopped images of him hanging out with celebrities in the photobucket are a lot alike at first, but then he starts getting more specific with things like “nice motorcycle pic” “great sky color”

I was never that into G.I. Joe
