Bad Art + Awesome Humer = XKCD

April 17, 2007

Double Take

XKCD is a webcomic about stickfigures and the shopping choices they have to make.

Just kidding. Actually, it’s a very funny comic with great art styling about “romance, sarcasm, math, and language” mostly told with graphs or charts. After the above example be glad he doesn’t draw funny facial expressions. You should also go see some of the funny ‘after punchlines?’ a la strong bad e-mails when you mouse over the comics.

See how much better the cucumber might fit over at XKCD.


Nihon no Riyori A La USB

USB Riyori

Coming from one of the greatest tech sites out there, Akihabara News, is the Japanese Food USB hub from Solid Alliance.

Bringing together the two passions of MaoChan (Food and Tech), the Japanese Food USB features a Rice-Tomato USB HUB, with your dinner consisting of 4 Ready Boost 1GB USB Keys in the shape of EbiFry (fried shrimp), Kani No Hasami Age (crab), Hamburg and Purin (Flan). These are handmade so don’t expect cheap but really how cool to just sit down to the computer and see that tasty food. But then look at your real dinner and realize how terrible a cook you are. At least you can season it with your tears.

I’ll the the large USB Combo plate with shrimp.

The Landlord

The Landlord

In what has to be the greatest piece of cinema that Will Ferrel has done, The Landlord leaves nothing to the imagination.

From its use of jump cuts to the references to French nior, this film shows just how mise én scene interplays with the constructivism criticism of the post-proliteriat.

I want my money BITCH!!
