What's In YOUR Pocket?

A guy I kinda know who's a pretty good friend of a real good friend of mine is doing something crazy!

don't see the vid above? try here.

His name is Greg and he and his friend Dan began a journey that will be fraught with danger. Maybe not 'fraught' and maybe not danger exactly, but certainly, uncertainty.

They've decided to travel across Europe without the aid of money, relying only on charm and good looks.... Well charm anyway.

In all seriousness, it's the sort of thing that makes me very, very jealous. It promises to be a humorous and entertaining peek into the diverse beauty of the human spirit, culture and intestinal fortitude. A social experiment that relies heavily on the belief that people are kind and want to share a  continue reading... »

LOL ur n00b!

The title says it all! What more do I have to say?


Ok maybe I'll add my 2 cents....

1337 (that's 'leet' meaning elite for you n00bs (that's noobs meaning newbies)), is SOOOOOOO old. This "newscast" had me ROFLMAO (I'll let you figure that one out yourself).

Who was the genius that came up with this story? And what, exactly, are they trying to do with this "scare tactic"? As if it's going to make parents pay any more attention to their kids. It doesn't matter what era you're from, parents have  continue reading... »

Juggling in Curved Einsteinian Space?

This immediatly reminded me of Einstein's illustration of curved space, with the marble. That was the first thing I thought.

The second thing I thought of was Michael Moschen (michaelmoschen.com). He's the inventor of "contact juggling", and David Bowie's hands in the movie Labrinth. Well, just the contact juggling scenes.  continue reading... »

PS3 vs Wii vs Xbox360

I love video games! If I could do nothing but play video games all day long I would. If I could make a living in the game industry, I'd be happy. Maybe I will someday.

We have upon us, the beginning of a new age in gaming. Hi def, high price and highly anticipated are common phrases I hear today about game consoles and the games they run. But nothing is as high priced as the yet to be released Sony Playstation 3.

The PS3 is promising superior capabilities and the best possible graphics in console video gaming. They keep promising so much power, in spite of the fact that they've had numerous technical hangups and are losing popularity in the minds of gamers. (At least the gamers I see in western media.)  continue reading... »

A Little Lite Cooking (nintendo style)

I spent the last two weeks with my cousin and his Nintendo DS Lite, it's SWEET. I managed to finish the New Super Mario Bros., much to his displeasure as it was his new game and he hadn't had time to finish it himself yet.

I'd really like to buy my own in the near future. I excited about the way Nintendo is changing what you can do with a gaming device. Especially the Nintendo DS. If it's any indication of what they'll do with their console, I can't wait for  continue reading... »
