This is what happens when you make music directed towards the lowest common denominator and give those same people an internet connection. At the same time, I weep for America, because one day, these idiots will either hold public office or manufacture a kid who will. (continue reading…)
I don’t even know where to start with this asshole. I mean, granted, this whole thing has been blown out all over the media, but that doesn’t mean I can’t my two cents in. After all, I’m the last guy on earth who would pass on pointing out the pot calling the kettle black
ahhh… sweet internet at last. This means I should get to doing this weekly blog again.
As a bearded male, I can appreciate a good beard when I see one… usually in the mirror. For my less facially-able brethren, apparently there’s the Beardo. I could explain this, but just watch the video.
I’d also like to note that this is the second kick-ass thing I’ve mentioned in one of these that’s offered by Vat19.com – well played, Vat19. Well played.
Since Jaye’s internet is out of commission (rumored WBOD target for next Sunday is Comcast), I have the honor and privilege of calling out two complete dickheads this week. (continue reading…)
We at BastardsHQ love us some ping pong, so seeing something that lets you play ping pong without a proper ping pong table is just fucking awesome. Especially considering it’s such a simple idea. WHY DIDN’T ANYONE THINK OF THIS BEFORE?!?
Some time ago, back in the immediately post-highschool days of L.I.E. ,playing shows, living with our folks, and working jobs only slightly more dead end than our current ones, Tim and I decided to work over his first guitar, a Kramer Stratocaster. The year was 2004, and what follows is a story of ambition, carelessness, and eventual victory.
Ok, so call me a nerd – when I was growing up, Sierra’s adventure games were the shit. Seriously. There was nothing like playing a little Quest For Glory 2, or Space Quest 3, or any other manner of keyboard and/or mouse controlled adventure games. In fact, one of the big draws of Abandonia (covered previously) in my mind was the ability download and play some of these gems from my youth.
Well, turns out Sarien.net is another way that one can do just that. Only this time, you can meet up with others playing the game, it has an improved control scheme, and it is completely browser based. Holy shit. The only downside is the lack of sound or music, which to me is a big negative. If you can look past that, though, check it out: www.sarien.net
Here’s the video we mention in the podcast with regards to the “many worlds” interpretation of quantum mechanics. More or less, any possible path of any given particle creates its own parallel universe to our own, but we only observe the one that exists in ours. This illustrates it with a custom level for Super Mario World. It’s fucking awesome – check it out and let it blow your mind:
Now I’m not the first person to take note at the most recent of Charlie Sheen’s many antics, though I will say I’ve been 100% behind the Charlie Sheen enterprise for as far as I can remember, regardless of the adorable little scuffles and antics he always ends up in. I only mention it ’cause sometimes there’s a man, I won’t say a hero, ’cause what’s a hero, but sometimes there’s a man, and I’m talking about Charlie Sheen here, sometimes there’s a man, well, he’s The Man for that time and place. He fits there. And that’s Charlie Sheen.
