Ash’s House

Pokemon House

Well, it looks like it anyway.  Instagram user Pixelized Creations made this really dang good representation of the generic house from Pokemon complete with a garden, and Ash battling Gary.

What’s even better, and somewhat hard to tell from the above angled photo is that it’s a 3-D representation of the scene.  The monochrome colors were chosen to more accurately represent how Pokemon looked 20 years ago on the original Game Boy.

Here are two more photos showing a different perspective where you can better see the depth of the project:

Pokemon Garden.

Pokemon Battle

Originally the project was going to be standard 2 dimensional, then a background was made, then after some thought it morphed into the 3-D scene you see above.  Everything goes really well.  The color scheme, the layout, the characters.  It’s all pretty ace.


a stumble awesome haha! the greatest


Hurricane Comic

I don’t often post about the webcomics I follow, mostly it’s because I follow so few of them, or, the better ones have disappeared over the years.  Well, theWAREHOUSE, is one of the better ones I’ve followed for years, and it’s still around.  It doesn’t have long, over-arching story lines like some comics, but it does have recurring characters, my favorite being Charles the Raver.

It’s really one of my favorite comics, it’s one of the only comics that I will totally read, as opposed to look at the title, and see if it’s worth my time.  You should read it, it’s good, trust me.  And while you’re at it, why not enter the contest he’s having for the 1,000 comic.  Free, super easy to enter, and there’s 2, (two) prizes, a free t-shirt.

All you have to do is tweet #WRHScomic, or do the same but on Facebook (however that handles #).  Looking at the current entries on twitter, there aren’t too many, so this could be your chance to score a nice free t-shirt.  Or not, I don’t care.  I do think you should support this artist though, because his stuff is good.


awesome internet movie video

What are your Particular Set of Skills?

Liam Neeson, in the character of Brian Mills from the film Taken, will record a video of himself endorsing your particular set of skills, from your own LinkedIn profile.  It’s a pretty neat contest, if one that has no real prize, or entrance whatsoever.  Seriously, all you have to do is follow the instructions here:, which ammount to “Follow this page” on LinkedIn.  That’s it.

You got nothing to loose, and on Dec. 24th, when the contest is over, just unfollow the page.  Also, see Taken 3 when it comes out next year.  Or not, I really don’t care.
