January 2009

I’ve always been a huge fan of stop motion video, but this artistic take on the medium is absolutely brilliant.


Sorry this is almost a week late but I was literally frozen solid by the Arctic Blast


On Monday, the weather forecasters were calling for snow overnight and into Tuesday morning.  Immediately schools and businesses closed and delayed opening.  When the “worst winter storm in years” finally hit, it was a few hours of VERY light flurries.  In the end there was less than two inches of accumulation in most areas.

The sun came out immediately after the snow stopped falling….

Schools were closed for three days.

I’m serious.  Every morning the news would warm of treacherous road conditions and black ice.  Imagine if the stance on “winter weather” were applied in the northern region of our country where there is real winter weather.

The hologram theory of our universe blows my mind.  Read it.

In 2005, Steve Jobs gave a commencement speech at Standford University.

Here’s an excerpt that really struck a chord with me:


I Stumbled across this image, and it made me laugh. I figured I would share it with you:

I’m not sure if this is new news or ridiculously old news, but maybe it’s just been THAT long since I’ve been to the google search page, but I just now noticed the new favicon that they are implementing:

Google's new favicon

I don’t know about you guys, but it feels like the mash-up of standard Google colors (ie, Red, Green, Yellow, Blue) into such a tiny space and then segregated by the outline of a white ‘g’ makes for an unappealing image.

Maybe I’m crazy or just having a bad day and taking it out on the Goog, but something just doesn’t feel right about this.  Almost reminds me of fruitcake?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

Arguably the best Super Mario Bros. game on NES, Super Mario Bros. 3 had fantastic music.  Alas, I never knew it could be made superior with the addition of some  skilled drum beats.  Check out this awesome video of uber-drummer Andre Avadrucci and his SUPER drum medley (his caps not mine).

Don’t forget to check out his other drum medleys, as they’re all equally awesome.
