Since the Dawn of time


Some Ringmania game to pass the time

I found this game the other day. It's decent when you're sitting at your desk eating your lunch ( trying not to do work ). Give it a try and leave any comments if you like or dislike it.

Ever wanted to sit and enjoy a martini in your own private underwater hotel room?

This is freaking sweet. Not only do I want to visit this place, but I want to eventually visit that Ice-hotel up in the Artic. That's pretty neat as well. Anyway the idea here is that you are completely underwater during your visit. Check it out!

Hydropolis


Luxist Objects of Desire 7/31/05

Check out the hot items coming out and/or already out. Everything from cool new sunglasses to crazy new gadgets.

Cool new gadgets


xbox 360 fanboy

This kid is hilarious. Someone should send him over to smashmyxbox and capture his reaction to the Xbox 360 being smashed in front of a crowd of people waiting in line ( not only to be told that there aren't enough units for everyone who pre-ordered ). HAH!

I wanna be the guy who's sitting on the lawnchair watching the nerds break out in un-controllable crying after watching their beloved Xbox being smashed into tiny little bits. Awwwww yeah...I love that smell....That's the smell of sweaty nerd fear.

Anyway if you wanted to check out the news on Xbox and 360 then check out Fanboy.

Payola Scams everywhere

Classic. I believe it all. I don't understand why the world is so twisted, but guess what? I'm going to find some way to cash in on it eventually and then I will laugh at all of the people who can't pencil it all together. Hahahahhaa I'm demented and I love it!

Payola Scams from Sony BMG


This guy clearly doesn't like IBM laptops.

Okay I can't really summarize what or who this guy is, but he's crazy and that's my story. He obviously hates IBM laptops for some reason and it seems his life's mission is to do stupid embarrasing things with them in public. I wish sometimes that some people would stay in their parents basements and just keep planning to take-over the world on their own time.

Stupid IBM laptop guy


Pong making it's comeback, oh yeah.

It's funny how pong is more entertaining then most games out on the market right now. Seriously game manufacturers are leaning more towards quantity > quality now and I'm no longer buying into it. I won't buy games on release day ( unless I absolutely must have it ) and I won't buy consoles any more. It's simply a matter of A.) Waiting a year for the price to be cut in HALF or B.) Waiting for the game to come out on PC ( where it will un-doubtedly be better anyway ). Anyway check out this crazyness.

Jennifer Aniston something or other...Not really news

Another perfect Example of what SHOULDN'T make the news, but always seems to. Celebrity gossip, bla bla bla... I don't really care what J-lo did with Vince Vaughn, a`ight?

Why does shit like this make the news?

My wicked new game idea

Okay so this isn't anything never before seen, but it is a mix that would provide hours of fun. Here's the idea: Starcraft online rpg with experience points and i dunno...turrets? Hordes of monsters attack you and your group ( here's the online part ) and you can buy upgrades depending on how many kills you get ( kills give you money for upgrades )

Now the interesting part is that you mix Starcraft with Smash TV. Cmon people, we know that familiarity puts your asses in the seats and sells tickets... Starcraft characters ( marines probably or goliaths ) vs. hordes of monsters and/or robots of some kind....*drules*

That's the game I would play for hours =)

I dunno, perhaps I will get off my butt and make something in Flash.

Wed Post-o-Matic Huge-a-thon

So in an effort to break this lazy streak that I've been in, I decided to start posting some goodies for you, my loyal fans.

In this entry, we will see everything from great Halloween costumes to cool new inventions. If this doesn't interest you, I have also provided a mini-game that - while boring, can provide a few minutes of excitement to your already boring day. I dunno alt-tab it or something.

I have also included links to pictures of the recent Halloween party "Scream 2005" for all of you dance-junkies who want to see your face in the crowds. I will be posting the e-town rave page links soon as I think I am in those pictures =)

Jenn you're my Beautiful Angel and I love you, this one's for you.


So we start off with a classic inspired by the old "Back to the Future" movies that we have all come to know and Love.

The first picture is a Lego Delorean. If you can remember the movies and how hilarious Michael J Fox was as an actor. THINK McFLY, THINK! Remember how crazy Christopher Lloyd's hair was in those movies? I loved it! Man that guy has huge eyeballs.

Delorean made entirely out of Lego:click here

Personal favorite action shot:click here

Can't forget the flux capacitor: click here


I normally don't post links to horrible websites like this, but this one TAKES THE cake over all horribly horrible fan websites to ever be horrible.

Today's next entry comes to us from the Engadget folks from their recent Halloween contest. Featured entries included the dude in the Simon costume and the guy with the working flip cell-phone costume - Great idea's.

Thursday Tech Edition - Gadgets Ahoy!

So I've been collecting gadget websites and new products and whatnot coming out onto the market. I decided to post them on here to show you what's interesting in the world of tech. I will probably make fun of most of these things, but some of them are actually pretty neat.

Hello Kitty gone terribly wrong:



The first edition comes to us all the way from our Japanese counterparts. To me this looks like a cheap hello-kitty knockoff of the ipod, but hey who knows? Anyway you wouldn't catch me dead wearing that thing.

Star-Trek nerds taking over the world:



Check out our next addition all the way from the WPC Expo 2005. I swear this thing was taken straight from a Star Trek show or something...KILL THE NERDS!

Sweet idea for a flame-free candle:



This cool gadget will interest you if you are in the market for a candle that never burns itself out! That's right, this is the Dual LED flickering candle straight from Brookstone. Kinda reminds me of Starwars or something the way you turn it on... Hah.

Revolutionary Thin-client PC hits the market:



Check out this amazing marvel in PC technology. This is what we call a thin client. It provides everything a PC provides, but connects to a server directly. This tiny little client can provide plenty of extra workspace room considering there is no bulky PC to get in the way. Also it is 100% whisper quiet!

Found on Road Dead:



Ford is coming out with a great new idea here. They will be encorporating Tablet PC's into their new F-series trucks. Not that I have ever liked Ford, but this is a great idea in the long run.

Cool new Sci-fi lazer-beam gun:

Looks like some crazy alien handgun from the movie the Fifth Element or something.

Ipod Rage:



Check out this hilarious video of some kids destroying some ipods. To think that when I was a kid, I would be out with my friends playing gun-tag with pellet guns. It was pretty fun when you come to think of it. We would take these little pellet guns and load them with redberries we picked off the tree's and shot them at eachother ( sporting some nice berry-juice stains ). It was always funny to shoot your pal in the face and see a little spatter of juice on his forehead. LOL.

USB Gloves that warm your hands:



Check out this slow-ass website. It sports this hilarious gadget that warms your hands while you work. HaH! The Japanese are way too concerned with the worst problems. I swear this is hilarious when you think about it. They are so cold they need USB gloves =)

First half-decent camera phone:



Check out this sweet 2 Megapixel cell-phone cam. It's amazing compared to some of the garbage out there right now. Sleek and thin, I'm luvin it! Check out the cool pics here!

UK provides first mobile-vending machines:



So you can basically use your cell phone to pay for items from the vending machines, without having to bother with change or finding pocket money. From what I understand it is connected to your bank account and withdraws directly via Interac ( or some form of Interac ).

Check out the link here.

Walmart has computers? for CHEAP!? Real Cheap!

- Not actual picture of Wal-Top ( my nickname of the crap-top from Walmart ).

Recently a Wal-Mart newspaper displayed inserts featuring a $398 laptop and a $398 desktop with an LCD monitor from HP. The notebook deal, if consummated, would represent a new low in price for mainstream Windows laptops.

Where's the beef?

Some of you may be wondering where the posts are lately.

Well they are coming, I'm just busy at work lately. Rest assured that I have plenty of bookmarked sites for posting tomorrow.

Check back soon for new additions!

Okay so I have two minutes before I go home from work.

I decided to post a quick rant about bum's and why they think it's acceptable to sit on their asses and ask for money day in and day out. My thoughts are:

a) I work for my money, go screw yourself, BUM.
b) Why should I give anything to someone who sits on their BUM all day begging? I don't think so, pal.

Anyway that grinds my gears.
