Sometimes You May Need A Wake Up Call

Ever wonder what's going on inside someones head that pops their collar? Probably something like, "Why do trash cans say thanks on them?"

Don't worry though, your true identity will be safe after you get your self a fake Douchebag name. I won't tell you what mine is, for safety reasons, but you can find out yours by clicking the link below.

Douchebag Name Generator

Here's a video you need to see if your results were a little too close to reality.

Rock n' Fail

Ever wondered how or why big name bands sound so good on stage? Truth is, they don't.

Now you know what the sound engineer does in the back of every show you've ever been to ever.

So basically some guy took out the real audio and replaced it with 2 year old musicians who play on cue to the video.

I Have, And They Are Right

Anybody else want to join me and print out random posters of animals that are awesome and post them around town? I still hate it when I don't think of these things.

Skate Or Die, Or Rock Out?

Just when you thought you couldn't see anything more awesome, along comes the Skatar.

A solid body Squier Jagmaster electric guitar completely playable. A few extra trucks from a skateboard and you get the Skatar.

"So I got all the parts for free, and since I already own plenty of guitars, I decided to add some trucks and wheels and see if I could skate it. The important thing for me was that it remain fully playable." - some dude.

You can see the steps he took here to create this machine of pure awesomeness.

The 8bit Album

Music lovers watch your awesome meter cause we are about to do some simple math.

What do you get when you add a Nintendo Entertainment System and Weezer?

Yes, you are correct, the answer is awesomeness.

Pterodactyl Squad brings you and I an 8-bit rock n' roll tribute to Weezer. Downloadable completely free here! Check out each song individually if you like there too.

This brings me right back to 6th grade when SNES was king of videogames, and Weezer was king of my boombox cd player. Who thought that I could get both at the same time? Wait, this sounds familiar... Ah, I remember now. This reminds me of the fantastic dream I had last night with Megan Fox and my Nintendo. Yup.

Darth Vader Is A Jerk

Good ideas suck when they aren't mine. This one is the worst.

Star Wars Uncut is a collaboration of 472 people. The idea is to recreate Star Wars: A New Hope. The entire movie is split up into 15 second clips. Each person claims one of the clips, films it, and uploads it in order.

Here's the link to check out the official unofficial page.

And here's what my remake would look like

Also, Darth Vader is a Jerk

Next I want to see the Power Rangers Movie Uncut.

Zombies Are The New Pink

Yes, this shirt will come in handy when babysitting. Why you ask? Because of this!

It's to celebrate Capcom's upcoming Wii title Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. Here's the link if you want the low-down from one of the designers of the shirt. Sounds like it's going to be given away for free at Comic Con this year.

Real Or Fake?

Tilt-Shift Miniature Faking. It's what made this video awesomely possible.

Keith Loutit is the man behind this video. You can find more of his sweet awesome tilt-shifting work here.

"Tilt-shift miniature faking is a process in which a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated so that it looks like a photograph of a miniature scale model. By distorting the focus of the photo, the artist simulates the shallow depth of field normally encountered with macro lenses making the scene seem much smaller than it actually is. Many miniature faked photographs are taken from a high angle to further simulate the effect of looking down on a miniature." - Wikipedia

Thom Yorke used it too.

Now Clap Like Zis

Remember back in your high school foreign language class when you had to recite some poem or make up a play in the particular language you had chosen? This guy does.

Mine was a video using spider-man action figures and candy. Cool, but not as cool as a milky pirate.

The Appropriate Response

I think Barfing should be an accepted form of responding to questions. It fully encompasses every feeling and thought that you so desire to communicate.

For example:
Hey biker dude! How's that strawberry shake?

...oh. Thanks.

Still not convinced? How about asking this guy how fun the roller coaster ride at Six Flags is?

I'm getting mixed signals with this one. Could it be it was so intensely awesome!? Or you didn't like the girl you were sitting next to? Either way, I understand, thanks.

Anyway you look at it, you can't disagree that you get exactly what they mean when they express such emotion. Our communication skill are going to improve greatly.

How and Why?

The dangers of driving back in the 50's and what you need to do in such situations.

Somehow I pictured Popular Science covering why smoking makes you look cool instead of predicting every action movie staring Bruce Willis. But don't forget, this could happen to YOU!

Dr. McNinja

It's about time I shared this gold mine of genius awesomeness with you. Forgive me.

Dr. McNinja is a doctor who is also a ninja. Now just think about that for a minute. I can't think of a more perfect circle, can you? You can either start at the beginning of his adventures, start in the middle, don't forget 3/4ths the way through, or jump right into his current adventure.

The comic is made by Chris Hastings, who writes and draws the comic. He's got a couple of buddies who help ink and color the comic, which you'll see later on in the series.

Here's a few of my favorite parts from the series:

How can you resist? It's pure awesomeness in it's purest of pure forms! I recommend starting from the beginning a reading it all. You will be an awesomer person for it.
