In case there’s any doubt that the terrorists have “won” the war for hearts and minds, here we have a bomb squad
blowing up a “suspicious” $300 toy pony. Yep, we’ve given up and are now paranoid police state wackjobs.
For those five science fiction geeks who haven’t seen it yet, may I present the only viral video I’ve heard of devoted to a Golden Age author:
Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury. Embedded video after the break, since it is obviously Not Safe For Work (As an aside, this is likely the only time I’ll get to use the category tags of “Literary, Music, Video, and Geek” all on the same post).
Another great stop-motion video, with the bonus feature of the paintings coming off the walls as well. No digital effects, just thousands of photos and a lot of creativity.

Apparently I have nothing to say lately, so here’s another cool video:
This is a piece of video art that took months of work to put together, so spare it 10 minutes and be amazed.
BIG BANG BIG BOOM – the new wall-painted animation by BLU from blu on Vimeo.

Here are a couple families that I can only assume will host every sleepover for a couple of years.
A man built his son an AT-AT loft bed with escape hatch in the play area above. Another man decided to go completely insane and built a three-bed bunk with an even more-detailed model of an AT-AT.
Produced by Robert Rodriguez, starring Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Don Johnson, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, Steven Seagal, Lindsay Lohan…and Danny Trejo in Machete!
Update: 20th Century Fox removed the trailer. Way to destroy the buzz for a movie, you marketing masters! Update2: Ain’t it Cool still has the clip on their site.
This is one seriously bizarre-looking killfest of a movie. And I think Robert Rodriguez dislikes Arizona’s new law.
For anyone who ever played a video game in the 80s or 90s, this video is made of awesome with a side of geek sauce.
One would expect a show on Cartoon Network that airs at 4pm to be directed at kids. I’m pretty sure that “Dude What Would Happen?” is aimed at stoners. Duuuude.
I know that things which appear to be clusters are merely random stastical fluctuations, but if another Canadian child actor from the 80s dies this month, it’ll be freaky.
Corey Haim, 38. At least the vampires didn’t get him.
Kat and I thought they should have tried to get some of these into the broadcast.
