Paintings I Wish I Had

This one would go in the study above the fireplace. That or this one.

Something seems terribly wrong but at the same time awesomely right with this picture.
Fact: HE-MAN and Skeletor ride on Battle Cat and Panthor. Both are cats.
Fact: Lions are cats.
False: Lions are green.
False: Skeletor road an elephant in the Savannah.
False: HE-MAN road a lion in the Savannah.
Fact: This painting is still awesome.

At least they got HE-MAN's hair right.

The Japanese Can Get Away With Murder on TV

Watch this, then realize how safe you are in America.

What the freak is wrong with these people!? How is that legal!? I think my favorite part is that you don't even have to know what they are saying to know that this is INSANE.

What's with inflicting massive amounts of pain? Actually forget about that, look at this!

WTF! I don't think I can handle anymore... OHHhhh no... I just hit gold. I think we have a winner.

So what have we learned? NEVER be on a Japanese game show, or you'll end up like Chris Farley.

Childhood Crushes

As a young boy I can remember wishing these bodacious babes were real and would play video games with me. Because that's what we would do when we were young and in love.

April O'Neil. I think I can safely say that I'm not alone on this one.

I made sure that I was the Green Ranger every time we played Power Rangers. Why? Because the Green Ranger and the Pink Ranger always had a "thing" going on. Didn't Kimberly become famous for something naughty?

You can't mess with a classic. Oh yeah, I know why Mario put himself through hell just to get to her. And no it wasn't because it was the right thing to do.

Nintendo is the new black

There are few things I would dare buy a girl, and this is not one of them. But girls, don't you see how beneficial this is!? While your shopping and you ask us guys to hold your purse, BOOM! we now have something awesome to do while we wait. We'll want to carry your purse around the whole time! Don't do it for yourselves, do it for men. Because we love you... so much.

The Nintendo Purse is made by Jeri Ellsworth via Makezine.

Here it is in action.

Are smart babies dangerous?

Did I get ripped off as a kid? Did my parents restrict my learning capabilities? Maybe, I don't remember. But I do know that my kid will not miss out on the knowledge that Z = Zombie. The next time the teacher in kindergarten class ask what starts with Z, my kid will be the first to answer, and I can tell you it won't be zoo or Zachary.

These blocks are exceptionally designed to teach Geeklings about the kinds of things one might encounter as a Mad Scientist. The set is made up of five handmade blocks that contains six sides of creative artistry. The detailed illustrations of the laser engraved images are flawlessly rendered to represent the key mad scientist memes that would correspond to each letter in the alphabet. The blocks are made out of American maple wood and are chemical free. We also must add that they smell amazing. The fragrance reminds us of a clove/vanilla scented wood burning fireplace. But not just any fireplace, but the kind of fireplace inside a Freeze Ray protected Underground Lair on a rogue island populated by Henchmen and Zombies, where plans for World Domination are being carefully plotted using copious amounts of Caffeine and Maniacal Robots… (ThinkGeek)

A complete list of the images represented by the letters is as follows:

A - Appendages
B - Bioengineering
C - Caffeine
D - Dirigible
E - Experiment
F - Freeze ray
G - Goggles
H - Henchmen
I - Invention

J - Jargon
K - Potassium
L - Laser
M - Maniacal
N - Nanotechnology
O - Organs
P - Peasants (with Pitchforks)
Q - Quantum physics
R - Robot

S - Self-experimentation
T - Tentacles
U - Underground Lair
V - Virus
W - Wrench
X - X-Ray
Y - You, the Mad Scientist of Tomorrow
Z - Zombies

It's Easier Than It Looks

Anybody ever heard of Mashups before? They are awesomely beatastic. Basically you take two songs, match up the beat, make them sound really cool, and BOOM! a Mashup.

You can do the same with Videos.

And my favorite one next.

Dear Russia, Tetris Rocks

Yes, I have had a dream about Tetris. Yes, it was exactly like the video game. Any more questions? Yes, you? Yes... I know that's sad. But it's all the more reason to buy these:

Seungyoub Oh invented these. He's my new favorite inventor. Him and the guy who invented this. I love you both.

Cats Are Great For Entertainment

I think this borders closely on the line of genius and a lot of money to be made.

On another note, what the eff is up with LOLCATS?

What gives us the right to say what these animals our obviously NOT thinking? If life were true according to Disney, then animals could talk. But us humans wouldn't know that unless you were a loner kid who just moved into a new neighborhood and had no friends. Animals always talk to those losers. So what's my point to all of this? If the animals could talk, then they could read. If they read what we were writing in the lolcats captions, I think they would be very angry, and we would no longer have house pets cause they would leave. Way to go I Can Has Cheeseburger.com, you ruined domestic pets!

I think this girl got it right though.

Speak n' Roll Dudes!

I know I'm good a Guitar Hero, but if I had this to rock out with, you'd have to buy a new car. Yes, a new car, don't ask how or why or in what way, just know that it would be a new car.

The Speak n' Spellbinder, made by this dude, who also made a bunch of other stuff with a technique called Circuit Bending.

For those who don't know what circuit bending is... Circuit Bending is taking pre-existing electronics, dismantling them, then rewiring them to create new sounds/things.

This is pretty much the coolest instrument I've ever seen. I can't decide if my favorite part is the Voltron head glued on the fret board, or the scenic desert pictured on the display of the speak n' spell.

The Speak n' Spellbinder features a full keypad on neck, glitch selection, tones, distortion, pitch, whammy, hold, and just watch the video for the full presentation.

Flying Sharks, and Flying Bears Too!

Science has yet again provided another way.

There's been sightings of half bird, half miniature shark bear, flying death bringers. Police say the best defense is to carry around a BB gun. The bites are deadly to small animals local to the park, but humans shouldn't worry and should carry around a package of medium sized band-aids.

Dino-Tastic High Fives for everyone!

This is the ULTIMATES of all ULTIMATES. It combines two things I love: Awesomeness and Dinosaurs!

Picture this, I start the game up, not sure of what I'm getting into, then suddenly a delicious rock electric guitar solo shreds and the title appears.

Robot Dinosaurs That Shoot Beams When They Roar! Screaming YES at the top of my lungs over and over again I begin my adventure, and this is what I have to say about it.

"This is the best game I've ever played." *sniff* And now the earth is safe for another Ten-Gillion years.

If you stand far away from your screen you can see it.

So does this mean that this superheroes weakness is a magnetic or metal surface such as a fridge?

Magnetic Pixels are square magnets measuring 10 mm x 10 mm (approx 3/8" x 3/8"). They are about 2 mm thick (approx. 3/32"). These magnets can be arranged to create pixelated images. By using a lot of pixels it is possible to create photorealistic images. The further you step away the more realistic it becomes.

Kids gotta be prepared too.

I enjoy art (some art) and I also enjoy video games. I really enjoy it when the two are combined. Here's something I really enjoy.

The constant flood of zombies bothering us never seems to end. But where does it begin? How come all the zombie movies, zombie comics, zombie games, and anything else zombie, only show zombies bothering adults? What about the kids? They gotta be prepared too. Right?

The painting was done by Jason Chan, who works for Massive Black, a concept art company.

Is this for real? Does anybody else get the urge to watch Aleins? I can't decide and I don't really want to. I do know that my Halloween costume is going to be awesome this year. To all that would be willing, I need to borrow someone's baby for the night. Also, think about what this ensemble would look like if the baby was crying.

If You Gave Godzilla a Cookie

If you gave Godzilla the option to become an American Gladiator, he would need a worthy challenge. Megalon! But then if he had a worthy challenger, he would need a place big enough to battle. Atop the Twin Towers! (obviously before 2001) If he had a big enough place to battle, he would then ask for helicopters and jets to G. L. A. M. O. R-ize the fight. If he had helicopters and jets, he would then have, The Ultimate Battle. Of coarse it would take place in the U.S.A.

I need to see this movie.

Math - Logic = Genius

This one guy in my Ethics and Values class turned in an in-class written essay test 1 minute after the teacher handed it out. It was supposed to take 45 min. There was only one question on the test,"What is the definition of courage?" His written answer, "This is."
