Updated Ultimate Showdown

This is a super long version where all the heroes battle to find the one true hero, and then all the villains battle to find the one true villain. It’s full of in jokes and fun, but it doesn’t quite have the charm of The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.

Honestly, I applaud the effort that went into this Adobe Illustrator version of so many pop culture icons, but it’s just too long. Way too long for something like this. Yes it’s comical that I’m complaining about something being too long in an age of 30s gifs and simple image macros and memes. But something about 10 minutes of one liners and juxtaposition seems like too much. A single 3 minute song conveyed the same information better.

How it’s Actually Made

While looking through videos to fall asleep to last night I came across this inconspicuous video on Frozen Pizza. At first it seems innocent enough, but you soon pick up on some weirdness. Eventually it goes full on satire. Hilarious satire.

We spent the better part of an hour watching one after another. It gets really good when you get to an episode where you’ve actually seen the official “How it’s Made” version.

There’s tons of them, and they’re short segments, you should watch a bunch!

Completely DIY Lincoln Log House

I played with Lincoln Logs as a kid, there were never enough of them to make anything other than a simple square house. But they were fun, and if you had a few kits combined you could really make some cool stuff.

Well, this redditor decided to make his own Lincoln Logs, and make a full house with them. Ok, not full, but a large house, with a upstairs and balcony and porch. Yes, the video is long, and if you’d like you can watch the sped up version on the reddit post. But it’s worth watching parts of it.

Building a LEGO Wooden Duck

Having made stop motion before I understand the effort that went into making this production. I have to say though, this is some pretty amazing production skills. It also shows that there’s always a use to having more LEGO bricks.

Halo Trailer Overview

This is a pretty great fan made trailer for the Halo Franchise:

It’s perfect – it gives a slight overview of the universe without giving too much away. It makes it feel like there’s twists, turns, and lots of unknowns to be had. Exactly like what is in store for those who play the game.

You should watch it, and then join me on MCC.

Behind the Scenes – Lord of War

This was an interesting short analysis of the opening scene from Lord of War. The rest of this 14 minute video is hit or miss but some of it is pretty interesting. The Lord of War part starts about halfway into it, it’s not that hard leading up to it though. Give it a go.

Crazy Underground Waterslide

Not quite underground, but close enough. I’m not sure how this came up, but while scrolling through videos in bed last night looking for cool and interesting things to watch while falling asleep this video showed up.

Now, my searches have been Geodesic Dome, terrariums, gardening, wood working, and home building focused. I’m not 100% sure where this came from, but it was interesting. And my wife and I spent the 20 minutes watching it and being amazed at the way these two (though, I guess 3) individuals turned the jungle into something else.

How, we’re not quite sure. Why, even less sure. But 35 seconds into the video we were equal parts confused and impressed, and at that point, dedicated to the cause. It’s interesting, and cool, you should dedicate yourself to the 20 minutes watching these guys build an underground palace, because they can.

Imagine building something like this in America. Well, I’m sure that you could somewhere, or something close enough to it anyway. One day that will be me. And trust me, when that happens, this blog will be no more. Because why would I be blogging when I could be enjoying my underground natural waterslide house?

Halo 64

Last month we saw the first trailer for Halo Infinite and it looked, underwhelming. A few weeks ago we heard that Halo Infinite is being pushed back to 2021 and I think that’s for the better.

Last week, twitter user @Hoolopee recreated the trailer in the style of Super Mario 64. Now, I don’t want to say that it’s better, but the retorness of it makes it enjoyable. Would I play this, probably as a novelty for a day or two, but I don’t think I would go as crazy all out for achievements as I currently do with Halo as it exists now.

It’s still pretty ace looking if I were to say so myself. But it also shows just how far technology has progressed since the mid 1990s.

It’s not The 90s Anymore

But here’s a cut of a bunch of different scenes from famous TV shows and movies where someone tells someone else what decade it is and to get with the times.

It’s interesting to see how many references you can get, and then how many you actually remember watching. Either live when it happened, or in re-runs/re-watches. There’s quite a few, including the 2nd worst Die Hard.

Halo: Infinite

It’s been a long time coming, but we finially have some concrete video for Halo: Infinite – AKA, Halo 6. It looks…good:

I gotta say, the gameplay itself looks like a cross between Halo 5 and something else. What that something else is, I’m not sure. It looks fast paced and very much like H5. I was never a fan of sprint, or clamber and they’re both there, but that’s not the end of the world. The grappling hook is neat, I hope it doesn’t turn into something stupid though.

All in all, I’m excited for it. I will buy it of course, but will I play it again, or will I 100% it and then uninstall it to go back to the good ol’days? That remains to be seen.

Here’s the official trailer:
