Stop Motion Video of a dream

Not so sure it’s a dream, but it is a stop motion video, and it is a very nicely done video, and it is a catchy tune.  I like it.  Having done some stop motion before, I know it takes time and skill, and that video must have taken days to make, and consist of thousands of shots.  It’s also very beleivable, the part where she was falling fooled me, and the running, hell, the whole video was very real looking, never thought she was laying on her back on a bed. {source}

Make a Snow Arch

That’s an arch made of snow, look at the grace, and the beauty, and the leaning of it towards one side.  Seems like a work of snow art that took hours to make, only to be destroyed by nature.  Oh well, here are some instructions on how to make it.  And here are some nice photos on how it was made:

Making the base with what looks like plastic tub, nice.  We used a garbage can for our snow slide.

They used the bad bricks to hold up the arch as it was made.  Good thinking, next they should boil them down and make some coffee with them or something.  Maybe coat the arch with ice.  We did that to our slide, it lasted for ages because of it.

The final test, remove the supports and hope the arch lives.  Theirs does, yay for them.  But victory is short lived, because the heat soon makes its mark and destroys the once graceful arch.  Oh well, here’s a nice video of the arch failing completely:

Free Photoshop at home!

No, there are no links to torrents, or cracks here, that’s for you to do on your own time silly.  No, some creative youngsters made their own life sized version of Photoshop

When you first look at the stuff they’re doing you have no idea what it is.  But slowly it all comes together:

See the basic layout is getting there:

And there you have it, a nice custom made version of Photoshop for the average person to use in their own home totally for free!  Take that overpriced Adobe product…

Awesome mugs

These coffee/tea mugs would be awesome as decoration, as a usefull mug, well some of them are not so usefull, like this weird egg shaped one that needs its special rack in order for you to put it down, strange…The alcatraz mug on the other hand though, I would use that one.

The global warming mug is hard to see in the photo here, but click this link and you’ll see it in action.  But as you add warm coffee to it, the world slowly gets more covered in water.  Ah how i love these silly things to scare people!

A few more interesting mugs over here for you to enjoy.

Take the DiceWalk

No, its not walking with a bag of dice in your pockets you crazy D&D person.  You use one, standard 6 sided die, and use it to figure out which direction you go when you reach an intersection.  The rules seem confusing at first, but when you think about it, it’s really straightforward, and simple, depending on the size of the intersection, the number you role is the direction you go.  The popsicle stick method of the advanced rules however seems interesting.  At least to use it for a eating decision maker anyway.  I can’t wait to get some free time when it’s warm out to try this, cause with 6inches of snow, and temps in the teens, this would be a less then fun game to play.

Be sure to check out some of the other intersting links over here, particularly the choice/chance links!

Even Disney Hates The Nazi’s


You see, even in the 1940s the Nazi’s were hated by everyone, who wasn’t allied with them.  Unfortunately for us the extreme polotical correctness of the world today has prevented us from enjoying that great propaganda video. Shuch a shame.  Oh well, watch it, and enjoy it, for it is pretty accurate, at least as far as propaganda goes.

Google’s Power Usage

In flowchart form!  That’s right, all that silly speculation a few days ago about how Google uses extreme amounts of electricity were silly compared to what they really do.  I mean there aren’t that many searches that have less then 20,000 results, so they don’t print out too many searches, and hey, at least its on recycled paper.  The light bulb as Morse code though, that’s a little excessive, get tech savvy Google, everyone knows LEDs are the new big thing, if you’re concerned that they are too efficient, then just step up the voltage and put a shit load of ressistors in there and all will be good.
