McDonald’s Burger from 1996

| September 24, 2008

This is f’n awesome. Her methods and claims are dubious, but it’s entertaining nonetheless. http://bestwellnessconsultant.com/2008/09/23/1996-mcdonalds-hamburger-karen-hanrahan-best-of-mother-earth.aspx This is a hamburger from McDonalds that I purchased in 1996. That was 12 years ago. Note that it looks exactly like it did the very day I bought it. The flecks on the bun are crumbs from the bun. [...]

Ma M̬re РWhy?

| September 24, 2008

1/5 What….the….FUCK!? That pretty much sums up this movie. Seriously, it was such a waste of time. No…that’s not quite it either. Yes, it was a waste of time…but not in the sense that it didn’t leave its mark, which could be described as a brisk drizzle of “WTF.” Is that the objective of art? [...]

Sakamoto Ryuichi

| September 23, 2008

I liked that fun little Electric Parade-ish song in the Sekai iPhone app video, so I looked around for the writer, a Sakamoto Ryuichi. Apparently he was in the early electronica scene in the 80′s (too dated for me, but one of my older friends recognized him immediately), but here’s some of his more modern [...]

Omfg, Sekai iPhone App

| September 22, 2008

Omfg. Hadn’t heard about this. Thanks Max. http://gizmodo.com/5048302/sekai-camera-turns-on-worlds-balloon-help Basically it recognizes objects in real time through the phone’s camera, and ID’s shit, gives info, etc. You can also leave comments for other people. That could be interesting. Katherine already imagines lots of S.O. interplay goodness with such abilities. Girls. I jest. I agree. I question [...]

Canon 5D Mark II [Update]

| September 22, 2008

Canon’s posted Vincent Laforet’s vid. It looks pretty sweet (and it’s been cut to 1/4th resolution from the original, too!). I can already imagine that amateur/indie film quality is going to skyrocket over the next couple years. http://www.usa.canon.com/dlc/controller?act=GetArticleAct&articleID=2086 More at his blog. Ooooh, shiny. Damn, 21 megapixels, and it does raw 1080P. http://gizmodo.com/5052767/a-taste-of-the-canon-5d-mark-iis-mindblowing-full-hd-video Wow, you [...]

The Habanero Challenge

| September 17, 2008

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXuFuN5KPbw Thanks Ha. Once in awhile, I’ll try to convince my friends to partake in “The Habanero Challenge.” Only one has risen to the challenge. Arun (an Indian if you think it’ll matter). For those I’ve asked already, I assure you, that boy’s response is a bit unusual. He’s being a wussy.  Don’t let it [...]

Joe Rogan’s Amusing Post(s)

| September 17, 2008

http://blog.joerogan.net/archives/101 NSFW. It’s really old, but I’ve never seen it. Here’s another one with a couple of entertaining vids. Watch the latter vid first to understand the former one. The first guy totally pwns the second guy. It actually kinda makes me want to attend a freestyle rap-off. http://blog.joerogan.net/archives/237 I feel a rant coming on… [...]

Using English Words When Speaking English

| September 17, 2008

So I saw a forum post that reminded me of a debate that I had with my friend (I shall link to the thread at the bottom; it’s quite interesting, and I recommend reading it). Said friend insisted on referring to his grandfather as “nonno”, which, in the grand scheme of things, is fine; whatever [...]
