Eye Scapes

Ran into this page over at the art-dept.com.

Eye Scape

It’s called Eye Scapes, and it is in Rankin’s portfolio. Don’t know too many details, except that it seems to be following me around the room.

Eye Scape

Go check it out and thank me later.

Web Comics Thursday

OK, Web Comics Friday, for those of you keeping score at home.

Apologies for not posting too much at all in the past week. I have been horribly sick and busy with IRL nonsense. Tis the season, right?

Anyway, ran into Buttersafe and just about lost my ish laughing.

Call me a heretic, but this is better than cyanide.

My Little Glue Factory

Caught this here and decided it was, indeed, awesome.

My Little Pony Glue Factory

Who knew that a toy service station and a grip of tiny ponies could bring so much joy to so many people?

Consider this my gift to Humanity this Holiday Season. There is no return receipt.

In closing, I have to sit and wonder if the furries will flip out over this binary plush destruction like they flipped out over this post back in the day.

Web Comics Thursday

Partially Clips is rock solid comedy.

Geeky, funny – well done all around.

Dwarves

I’m trying to keep my unmovable margins high and tight. To see a larger version of this comic, click the link above to go to the page, or click “View Image” and see how awesome it is.

Also, if anyone knows how to change my margins, drop me a line.

Super Mario Pwnd in 5 Min

Caught this over at Games Radar.

The video is exactly what it sounds like. Five minutes of Flawless Pay. Brilliant Video.

If you like this, you might also want to check out the Super Mario Tesla Coils.

Bizarre Online Gaming Incidents

DailyBits has a great post about the most bizarre online gaming incidents.

It’s really worth the click and the read, but more than a few of the entries include real world shenanigans, like murder, IRL death (as a result of over-playing) and kidnapping.

My own most bizarre online incident involved marathon battle-tetris and some spilled Mountain Dew, but that is a tale for another day.

Flat Tire Unearths Martian Microbes

For real.

According to the BBC, the martian rover has kicked up some silica-rich soil, which could indicate microbial life. All because of a flat tire. The page calls it a “Lucky Find”:

It has been described as a fortuitous discovery. Spirit has been driving with a broken wheel that constantly digs a trough as the vehicle trundles across the Martian landscape.

In May this year, scientists working on the mission noticed the churned-up soil had a much brighter appearance than usual.

These robots were supposed to function for 90 days but both rovers have been in action for around 1400 days now. Although they will have to reduce their activity due to the harsh Martian winter.

If this keeps up, it will only be a matter of time before a busted spark plug rips a hole in the fabric of space-time.

Hobo 2.0

WikiHow has a great LifeHack on how to become a Hobo.

The Hobo has become a romanticized symbol of American freedom and laziness. Made popular in the depression when scores of rugged self-starters took to the rails in order to get drunk and eat hobo stew, the hobo mystique is undergoing a modern renaissance.

According to the site:

The dawn of the Internet and increased dissatisfaction with the 9 to 5 routine have led more and more people to wonder if earning a living while on the road is a viable alternative to the daily grind.

Apparently programmers, coders and editors are in high demand and can pack up their handkerchief backpacks and live the real American Dream. And by real American Dream, I mean, of course, getting drunk all day, not working a regular job and sleeping in a Greyhound parking lot.

The site has many tips and tricks for modern Hobo 2.0’s. They recommend digital hobos keep a weapon on themselves at all times since “a nomadic lifestyle is a dangerous one.” The site is also careful to differentiate hobos from bums and tramps.

“Remember that, as a hobo, you enjoy traveling and are willing to work, unlike a bum or a tramp who also travels but will not work, and lives by begging for money or for food.”

Also check out the Wikipedia article on hoboing, which gives readers a list of popular Hobo slang, hypes the National Hobo Convention and translates the Hobo Code.
