AnimeMusicVideos.Org Shows Off Mad Editing Skill

March 30, 2007

AMV

Photoshop. Check. Anime. Check. Mad Editing Skill. Check.

Of the above, you need to possess all three if you care to enter the pantheon of anime music videos or AMVs. AMVs are short movies done to music as montages celebrating the creator’s favorite anime(s). They range from the poorly done, using two VCRs method, to the highly skilled Final Cut jobs.

The central hub of these can be found at AnimeMusicVideos.Org, a massive collection/database/network of almost everyone who is into creating these fantastic videos.

Someone Actually Can Do The Dixie Twist

March 29, 2007

Dixie Twist

The above is from my favorite, and probably everyone else as well, webcomic called Penny Arcade. In the short series titled Undisclosed Propensities, Gabe is embroilled in a line dancing fiasco that when push comes to shove, he has to reach deep down to pull off the one and only Dixie Twist.

Although most assumed this type of precarious maneuver confined to webcomica, it turns out it is not.

All behold that which is the real life Dixie Twist.

Bowling Ball + Idiots In Car = Awesome-O!

Bowling Car

Proving to the world that their will never be a lack of ingenuity or stupidity, I give you this video. The concept was to see how far/high they could launch a bowling ball off a ramp via the locomotion of a car.

The best part is the “Dude that sucks for you” as they all stand around after realizing that they will have to tell their parents:

Kid: “And then it hit the car and the whole window broke.”
Mom: “God, this proves yet again I should of aborted you.”

Check out some dumb ass carbowling antics.

Come Meet MaoChan @ The Flying Saucer

March 28, 2007

Flying Saucer

For anyone in the San Antonio area, MaoChan and the crew will be drinking it up at The Flying Saucer. One of, if not, the best bars around, The Flying Saucer boasts over 250 beers that rotate out on a daily basis. Come join us for a cold one, hell I will be a nice guy and let you buy me one. ;]

Come say hi, get some beer recommendations, check out my plate on the wall, give some opinions on the site, or just give us some money. Whatever floats your boat. I will be the dude wearing the blue Tokyo Giants hat, just ask one of the girls to point out Bruce and they can probably direct you accordingly considering how often I go.

Get drizzunk at The Flying Saucer.

Homebrew Triple Triad MMO for PSP

March 28, 2007

Triple Triad

One of the coolest things to come out of the Final Fantasy universe is the card game Triple Triad. A complex game of flipping and fucking or futoning as the college kids might say, it involves cards brandishing the characters and monsters from the FF world.

First introduced in FFVIII, it has seen variation in other FF games, even being a sort of pack-in for FFXI, Square’s big life stealing MMO. The news of this game comes in the form of homebrewers who have coded Triple Triad for the PSP but also added an online component where you can battle, trade, and sell cards.

I will see you on the flipside.

PS-I am so sorry for how bad that is but I just had to use that crappy saying.

Crazy Koreans! Starcraft! What More Do You Need?

March 27, 2007

Starcraft

We all remember back in the day, no one cared what console you had. The Nintendos and Playstations all lived together happy. That was due to their overlord called Starcraft. If you didn’t play this back when it was hot, you are a GOD DAMN LOSER. I don’t think I can stress that point enough, because everyone played. Hell I think I lost some BNet matches to my dog cuz even he was on. But then came the Koreans and the magic ability that they so suavely call skill.

One term I want to mention here is “Going Korean on….” something. When you “Go Korean on” things, it means you have dedicated so much time and skill to become so good that you have just finally broken into the upper echelon that is the ability of a Korean video game player. Really these people die for games, unless you do that, you are not hardcore. Sadly, a real Korean can still gank you easily, cuz they inherintly “Go Korean on” everything.

Rock Out With Your Bum Out

March 26, 2007

Pots and Pans

Most bums you see on the side of the road, they beg for money like the dirty bums that they are. But then there are some bums that are so good at something that it makes you wonder how they are still bums, really if this dude applied himself to anything other than some buckets, he would probably be making more money than me.

On a side note, if you are lost and looking for the mall, try looking for homeless people. They usually stand near high-traffic areas such as the entrance/exit to a mall. Please note that this formula has only proven to work in Austin, Texas.

Get banging with some buckets.
