Cal Marching Band Gets l33t

Check the sheer geeked out awesome fest that is the Cal Bears Marching Band running a Video Game themed half time show waaaaay back in the early 90s.

Love the Tetris shapes and Mario Montage.

If you like this, check out some other video game tirades, like Metroid Prime CosPlay and Super Mario Brothers PWNAGE.

Sub-Zero vs Batman: Video

Oh man, I want this. I want this so freaking bad.

Finish Him, Bats!

WoW: Harmless Waste of Time or Cult for Maladjusted Shut-ins?

Is World of Warcraft a harmless waste of time like crossword puzzles and masturbation, or is something far, far more terrifying, like demolition derbies and pick up games of “kick the cat?”

Harmless or Harmful?

All I know is that everyone I know IRL who plays WoW is a giant waste of space. Without exception these mouth-breathing, knuckle dragging morons live in some kind of fantasy world to distract themselves from their mediocre, impoverished, socially-awkward existence. Want to forget about your job with the name tag and the hairnet? Level up in WoW. Want to forget about your receding hairline and piles of credit card debt? Just log on for some raids in WoW. Want to forget about that tight, tingly feeling in your stomach when you look at a woman? Log on to Laughing Skull, that will make real life seem better.

I have an idea, maybe your junior-college drop-out, no money for beer and too ugly for women lifestyle would change if you paid more attention to your real life quests than your fantasy mage in WoW.

Taking a shower regularly IRL? Consider that building up hygiene points. When you run out of shampoo you can “level up” to some designer stuff instead of the Generic Drug Store Hair Care you’ve been using since the late 90’s.

Working out 3 times a week? That goes on your strength card if its weight training and agility if you add some light cardio.

Talking to girls? That’s charisma, chum. So don’t take time out of the limited existence here on earth to go playing prolonged games of make believe.

In stead, live life in the real world, where almost all of the hot girls live.

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.

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.

Robotic Super Soldiers Are Real!

This –

– just went from science fiction to science fact. Check out this video from CNN that shows how the army of one just became the army of one super strong robotic killing machine.

I like the faceless robo-suits at 2:38. Although, I have to say, if I get to power a robotic exoskeleton and have super strength and super killing powers (and, I also assume, super love-making abilities) then I’m joining up in America’s Robot Army, pronto.

How Did I Get Here?

You may ask yourself, how did I get here?

Well, thanks to the technological marvels of the inter-webs, I can tell you exactly how you got here.

Why is a Raven Like a Writing Desk?

Here are some of the more interesting search terms that brought people to the best blog in town.

LOLCAT, and it’s case sensitive companion LOLcat – given my animosity towards all things cheezburger, I am not surprised.

Crack Head and someone else searched for “guy with cat”

OK, I guess this is to be expected. But then the search terms just get weird.

For instance:

baby furries – I hope they found this post.
diaper furries – ::shiver::

Oedipus and sexual deviancy – hey, what you do on the internet is your business, but how you get here is mine. Let’s start searching for “cool blog” and “outrageously awesome content” and wind up here – Deal?

Deal. 

Super Mario Tesla Coils

Apologies for the lack of writing and overabundance of videos, but I have been dreadfully caught up IRL.

Here is a video I caught over at Makezine 

that shows two 7 foot Tesla Coils performing an electric duet of the Super Mario Brothers Anthem.

Apparently all the sound is genereated through the coils and there are no speakers to speak of.

Enjoy, you rotten heathens!

Amazing Guitar Hero 3 Video

I’m normally not a big fan of bro culture,

but this video, grabbed over at techpepper, gives me new respect for shiftless young pups with too much testosterone.

This video, which was snapped from daily motion – is officially out of control.

BTW – The hand holding before the final stretch? WTF?
