Fred Is (Not) Cool, Magibon

| March 8, 2009

Ah YouTube. When I’m bored, I’ll click around in the Rising or Featured videos categories. That’s how I discovered Fred and Magibon, both very popular users that a elicit “WTF” response. Fred’s honors: #1 – Most Subscribed (All Time) #1 – Most Subscribed (All Time) – Comedians #1 – Most Subscribed (All Time) – Partners [...]

Improv Everywhere

| February 28, 2009

High Five Escalator: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Abt8aAB-Dr0 Spontaneous Food Court Musical at Baldwin Hills Mall: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkYZ6rbPU2M Improv Everywhere. Totally forgot about these guys. Their last antic I read about was the Best Buy one, which was pretty epic. They got maybe 100 people to dress up with blue shirts and brown khakis, the standard issue uniform of a [...]

Screenwriter Alex Tse Speaks About Watchmen

| February 24, 2009

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAO5vj6-kbY It’s been a long time since I’ve read Watchmen. And to be honest, I wasn’t that impressed. I can’t remember exactly why, so I suppose I should read it again. But Alex Tse’s interview kinda jogged some memories. I think by the time I had read Watchmen, I had already been exposed to flawed [...]

Finite Simple Group (of Order Two)

| February 21, 2009

Oh god. Commence the groaning. It’s a Valentines-themed song using math lingo. It’s probably one of the nerdiest things I’ve ever seen. I seem like an uneducated barbarian (pre-fire era) before these guys. But it’s amusing. It’s kinda fun trying to identify which words are math keywords. ¬†Once you start wiki-ing them, it kinda makes [...]

Rapelay Virtual Rape Game Banned by Amazon

| February 13, 2009

Oh, Japan. Thanks Ha. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/scienceandtechnology/technology/4611161/Rapelay-virtual-rape-game-banned-by-Amazon.html In Rapelay, gamers direct a character to sexually assault a mother and her two young daughters at an underground station, before raping any of a selection female characters. The game was intended for release just in Japan, but was on offer to British buyers through Amazon Marketplace, the section of [...]

Female Driver Compilation

| February 12, 2009

To be fair, I think the mini one is faked, and the bus one looks like it’s in England, which would mean the dude was driving. Don’t be mad, ladies. I know there’s lots of sexily competent women out there. But I had to post this. The one with the Mini-esque car and the BMW [...]

KenKen

| February 11, 2009

A “new” kind of puzzle for Sudoku lovers (or just logic/math lovers). Thanks Brad. http://www.kenken.com/playnow.html Just like in Sudoku, every number in a row or column has to be unique, but numbers inside bolded cell groups, called cages, have to conform to the specified rule listed in the corner of the cage. For example, “2-” [...]

Poor dog. But I laughed.

The Most Evil, Yet Genius Website EVAR!

| February 7, 2009

I don’t know how I hadn’t heard of this. Thanks Eric. swoopo.com What is it? It’s a bidding site, like eBay, yet sooo much more evil/genius. Instead of bidding with a price that you specify, you instead place a bid and the site auto-increments the asking price for you by a pre-designated amount. The catch: [...]

Christian Bale’s Meltdown & Remix

| February 5, 2009

Someone made a remix of Bale’s tirade, and it is awesome: http://www.youtube.com/v/YTihsJQHt48&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x3a3a3a&color2=0×999999 I don’t really sympathize with either party too much (to the extent of how little I care about the whole thing). Yeah, Bale totally flips out, but I do agree that a more professional DP wouldn’t have been waltzing around during a scene [...]
