Fire Party


Rabidplaybunny87: Okay, so my neighbors officially hate me
GarbageStan23: why?
Rabidplaybunny87: Well, me, david and andrew were having a bonfire in the backyard, and we were making s'mores and all... and suddenly we here sirens, and see a firetruck turn into the street in front of us.
Rabidplaybunny87: So we all went running to see what was up, and our neigbor's house was on fire!
GarbageStan23: oh shit!
Rabidplaybunny87: Yeah, and when we got there, the wife was crying into her husbands arms, and we were just kinda standing there, and then she saw us, and then like for 10 seconds, gave us the dirtiest look ever
Rabidplaybunny87: Turns out, we were still holding our sticks with marshmallows on it, watching the fire....
Rabidplaybunny87: talk about bad timing...

this movie looks so insane.

Beautiful Losers

Check out the trailer for this movie/documentary
"Beautiful Losers celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural movements of a generation. In the early 1990's a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the "establishment" art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture. Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories...speaking to themes of what happens when the outside becomes "in" as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today's youth."


Howard Unruh

I always found how men (and now women) are affected by warfare very interesting. One particular that stands out to me, probably for me because Sheer Terror wrote a song about him is Howard Unruh. To many he is considered the "father of mass murder". Howard had gone on a killing spree, murdering 13 people on September 6, 1945 in Camden, NJ.
"Always a reserved man, he had turned into a recluse in the three months before his spree. The World War II veteran was unemployed and lived with his mother. During the war, he was reportedly a brave tank soldier who kept meticulous notes of every German killed, down to details of the corpse."
Go here to read more about Howard and the events of that day:

Editor: "How many have you killed?"
Unruh: "I don't know yet - I haven't counted them, but it looks like a pretty good score."

Here's a short documentary about Howard Unruh:

Cell Phone Application Developmentli

Here's a pretty interesting opinion article about cell phones.
"Why the 160 character limit on SMS? Because SMS messages are squeezed into a gap in the control sequences that phones exchange with the towers to remain connected to the network. In other words, SMS messages are sent anyway, all the time, even if you haven't put anything in them. They are just part of the network! So why do the telcos charge 25c per message? Because they can. Oligopolies are cute like that."

The Software of the Mars Phoenix Lander

Go here to read an interview about the software used on the Mars lander: http://news.oreilly.com/2008/07/the-software-behind-the-mars-p.html
"In cruise, we had contact about every three days for eight hours. During EDL, we had continuous contact for about I don't know 24-48 hours. Maybe it was longer than that. I'm not really sure. On the surface, we get at least two passes, two full communications passes a day. We actually get passes about every two hours during nighttime operations. The spacecraft has to wake up every couple of hours and verify its power state, and sometimes there's a communications pass associated with that. Generally in terms of command ability and getting science data back, we do two or three passes a day."


Roller Coast Tycoon Crash


"University of Florida mechanical and aerospace engineering associate professor Subrata Roy has submitted a patent for a circular, spinning craft that can hover and take off vertically. The wingless electromagnetic air vehicle, or WEAV, is just six inches across, but has the potential to be scaled up to a much larger size. The WEAV is covered with electrodes that ionise the surrounding air into plasma, which functions as the conducting fluid. Passing a current through the plasma creates lift and momentum."


What up ma

Mhmm, give me all those shoes

It’s been a long long long time

"Culture Buzz An animated version of John Lennon, in 1969, talking about war and peace. The audio comes from a conversation recorded by then 14-year-old Jerry Levitan, who cornered Lennon in the singer’s Toronto hotel room. The grown-up Levitan produced this short."

I didn't get to watch this yet, going to when I get home from work.

I love my non-human friends more than humans

"Animals have complex dreams and are able to retain and recall long sequences of events while they are asleep, Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers report for the first time in the Jan. 25 issue of the journal Neuron."



I saw this on reddit this morning.

The land of generating

Here's an archive of all those weird online webapps that you use to generate pimp names and such.

Mine is Lawrence Hott ...

It just sorta got outta hand and... yeh

The dubbing is off, it's awful but still great.

Still phenomenal.

Classic Game Characters in Spores.....Whaaa?

Some dude over at Gaming Culture made tons of those old characters that you know and love from gaming past. Out of spores? I have no idea how the program works but it seems pretty cool. To me it feels weird how Pac Man turned into a Super Mario Brothers character.


why do they always take the good ones?

Mother of Mercy

"Private LaVena Johnson's nose was broken, teeth were loose, one eye was concave and there were abrasions over her body. The supposed M-16 hole to the head was far too small for the revolver-sized exit wound, and was on the wrong side of her skull for a right-handed woman to have pulled the trigger. Her genital area showed evidence of acid, perhaps used to destroy DNA evidence. She had white military gloves glued to her burned hands."

"Three years after her daughter's body had been flown home from Iraq, it was still too painful for Linda Johnson to describe the first moments when she realised her daughter had been raped, shot, burned with acid, then dumped in a contractor's tent and set on fire."

-Tracey Barnett




I don't really know what to say about this besides that it ruined my day.

When The Moon And Google Meet ...The Stars Are Blind.


I love google and i love the moon.

Word on the street is that google and the moon are going to have a collaboration, and create another form of life for the moon. There are only rough sketches now, but they have a few leads like this


Robert Williams

Above is an image of what the original Guns and Roses album "Appetite for Destruction" was going to look like. The artist was Robert Williams and some of his other work is amazing. I just realized the other day who he was, when a lot of the same paintings i see are his.


Im going to be making my digi mix post soon, i just ran in to some weird shit. MOON MAN

Morphing chemical robots

"Tufts University has received federal funding to develop chemical robots that will be able to squeeze into spaces as tiny as 1 centimeter, then morph into something 10 times larger, and ultimately biodegrade. The "chembots" could access urban environments, tunnels, caves and debris fields, and carry out other risky operations in complex environments."

The end of days are coming.

Typography is kewl.

I love the colors and mixed media of this simple design..it references the past, but brings it to new life.


Check it, Marty McFly Hyperdunks

Mike, I am expecting you to do whatever you have to, to have a pair of these.

Mac OS X, Display looks like you dropped 8 tabs of acid

If your display ever looks like that. IE. having a loss of colors and looking like an old monochrome display on acid, try resetting your PRAM. This portion of memory on the logic board holds your display and video information.

The sad part is that after talking with two different apple employees, niether had any idea what to do. One suggested a SMC Reset and I'm not really sure why but I figured I'd give it a shot. Needless to say, the PRAM reset worked which I thought of after one time when I was at the "Genius Bar" with one of our iMacs from work.

Also, the video card I have, ATI Radeon x1600, had been discontinued in June of 2007 and there are NO video drivers anywhere to be found.

How to reset PRAM:

What's stored in your PRAM:
  • Display and video settings such as refresh rate, screen resolution, number of colors
  • Startup volume choice
  • Speaker volume
  • Recent kernel panic information, if any
  • DVD region setting
Note: Mac OS X stores your preselected DVD region choice in PRAM for easy access. Resetting PRAM does not allow you to change the DVD region.
