March 30th, 2009 by frankie23

This is probably one of the cleverest presentations of the story of Little Red Riding Hood ever. By far the slickest…

This is far too cool. It turns out that you can go to FAO Schwarz’s site and build yourself a personal Muppet! One of the generic ones, mind you, but still, personal Muppet! As you can see, I designed this one to look like Frankie as a cast member of the puppet version of The Sopranos. Now, if only I could justify spending $90 USD on a special friend…

Star Wars ?Toy Teaches Kids To Kill

Okay, maybe not technically, but I can’t tell if this thing is creepy or cool. The Star Wars-branded The Force Trainer uses an EEG reading headband to allow you to float a plastic ball up a ten-inch tube, so as to appear analogous to Luke’s training sessions on Dagobah. The technology, formerly used in fancy military experiments and physiotherapy devices, seems to be spreading out into children’s toys.

It’s funny how often former military tech is applied to stuff for kids.Or do I mean disturbing? Yeah, that’s the one.

I don’t really have much clever to say about this one; it’s a fucking beautiful video, a delightful track, and it just makes me smile.

R2-D2: What He Really Said

March 3rd, 2009 by frankie23

This is lots of fun. Taking all the scenes with R2-D2 from the excreble Star Wars: Episode One, a fellow by the name of MeanestBear has managed to wring some amusement from the biggest disappointment of 1999. As a bonus, you can also remind yourself of how gaddamn fucking annoying Jar Jar was, and roll your eyes at young Anakin’s “piloting” skills. Fun for the whole family!
