Isn’t that just one of the nicest renditions of Eris you’ve ever seen? It comes from D.J Coffman’s blog Yirmumah.com, which has one of the more interesting gimmicks I’ve seen yet. Basically, you send him two bucks via the PayPal with a request, and he’ll provide it for you in visual format. He’s already managed to piss off Scott Kurtz from PVP for this one, so the man is a king in my book. Go check it out, and if you request anything, make sure to tell me!

Prepare For The Future With Vault-Tec!

July 15th, 2008 by frankie23

Let’s be frank here, this is just an ad for a video game. With that out of the way, let’s talk about how awesome it is! The Fallout games have always had a wickedly black sense of humour, and it’s nice to see that Betheseda haven’t forgotten that spirit as they’ve taken over the franchise. From the wickedly retro stylings to the always-plucky Vault-Boy, this video just furthers my frothing desire for the post-apocalyptic future. Mutants ahoy!

Aerospace behemoth Boeing has announced that it will build a hybrid airship/helicopter combination aircraft, able to lift heavy loads across long distances. Boeing will work with Canadian firm SkyHook International.

Finally, the industrial-corporate hegemony has seen the value of lighter-than-air craft! Oh, how I’ve yearned for a world where giant zeppelins drift silently through the sky, like massive lofty whales of the aether. Thank you Boeing, for making this young man’s dreams a wonderful reality. Now, I just need to convince someone that these are needed in Vancouver…

Welcome To… The Future!

July 11th, 2008 by frankie23

Ah, the bright shiny future! come my friends, and view the glories of the time to come, 1960! This video clip is a visual document of The Futurama, a exhibit/ride at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Sponsosred by General Motors, The Futurama is a perfect example of the type of optimistic idea people had about the future back then. Admittedly we now know it’s all lies and cookies, but think what could have been! Automated highways, “gyro-coptors”, and suburbs that don’t suck you of the will to live. Oh, shiny future, where’s my fucking flying car?

Love In This Club

July 7th, 2008 by frankie23

In one of the more delightful things I’ve ever seen in my life, some enterprising soul has done something almost unthinkable: made Usher bearable. Outside of my realm of experience, appartently Chuck E. Chhese used to have a competitor called Showbiz Pizza, and Showbiz had their own in-house animatronic band The Rock-afire Explosion. I’m not sure of the source of this video, but in a nutshell it’s Usher’s “Love In This Club” as preformed by said talking animal stage show… and it’s brilliant. I hope this affects your day as much as it has mine.

Hellboy PSA: The Funniest 20 Seconds You’ll See Today

July 4th, 2008 by frankie23

Bwah-hah-hah! Oh, goodness, I just want them to give Ron Perlman a talk show where he interviews people in-character as Hellboy. It would make me the happiest camper on the face of the planet. I know The Dark night is getting lots of kudos for its viral campaign, but I’m really enjoying Hellboy’s more. Bonus video after the jump – Inside The Actor’s Studio, with Hellboy!
