Lego Mindstorms Robot Solves Rubix Cube

via Geekologie.

Every time I sit back and think of how nerdy I can be, I encounter something like this magnificent MINDSTORMS creation that affirms my normalcy. While I can't claim that I don't think this is insanely cool, I can say that I'm glad that someone else is dedicating their time to such useless pursuits while I plug away at work and occasionally at this very website.

When I said no more zombies...

I didn't mean this! My sickness with the zombie subgenre can be cured by creative puppetry, so consider me a hypocrite!

Real People News - Seattle Toilets Too Dirty for Crackheads

I usually try to refrain from ultra-short blog posts without a video, but this quote from the New York Times article about Seattle closing their public toilets was more than worthy of a post all it's own...

Prince of Persia + E3 + Sigur Ros?!

I'm not sure what's more shocking, the fact that "Saeglopur" by Icelandic atmospheric superstars Sigur Ros is featured in the trailer for the next gen version of "Prince of Persia" or that fanboys/girls are generally really digging the jam. Either way, this trailer looks beautiful and I will most certainly be picking this up when it comes out. As long as the action stays more on the actual action and less on the fairy magic side, I think I'll be quite pleased.

Los Campeones De La Lucha Libre!

While I've been sitting back eagerly anticipating/dreading Rob Zombies perpetually-in-production animated Lucha film "The Haunted World of El Superbeasto," the folks behind lucha zine "From Parts Unknown" have been piecing together an animated feature called "Los Campeones De La Lucha Libre" (that's spanish for, the niño) that looks to be a slightly more teenish if not adultish version of Cartoon Network's "Mucha Lucha," and I'm ok with that!

Need some ill-noni design work done?

I try to shy away from shameless shills in general (unless they are paid or my own), but my good buddy/former roommate Adam just put up his new site. It's simple, to the point, and you should see pretty clearly that he knows what he's doing. He specializes in punk/hardcore t-shirt designs, layouts, and posters, but he's looking to expand beyond that so I bet he'd be psyched to do some horror stuff too! Tell him we sent you too.

I made him watch Black Sheep with me and he loved it, so he can't be too bad of a guy either!

Jessica Alba Staredown

I know this is old news, but this bit for IBeatYou is worth checking out over and over again. I've found that the toughest part of this "challenge" is not so much keeping myself from blinking, but maintaining 'eye contact' with BGH's favorite lady interest without becoming severely uncomfortable. Enjoy!

Happy Fourth of July, Earth!

Although I won't be drinking anything tonight thanks to my spectacular feats of consumption last night, I will still be refraining from treason all day. For our overseas friends, I've posted this video of The Great Kat to show you just what loving freedom is all about. Be safe everyone!

Blood Bowl Teaser Trailer

Upon hearing the title of this game and watching the first 20 or so seconds of this trailer (counting the 10 seconds of logo bullshit) I thought to myself "mutant league football on a next gen system, finally!" and then I read this silliness...
