MaoChan Wants Lighting Awesomeness

I have always wanted to live in a techno color tube of funk. Now that might actually happen. Just watch.

Amazing.

Daft Punk Coffee Table

June 23, 2008

This here is one of the few DIY projects I really want to try except I have no idea how to handle the electronics. Carpentry, piece of cake but the circuits and programming, I don’t know shit. These were apparently something you could buy from a store in the UK called Habitat but are no longer sold.

Daft Punk has always had a soft spot in my heart. From the melodic beats to the insanely cool videos, they are always pushing forward music in a direction not many venture into. They are definitely innovators.

Around The World Music Video after the jump for a bit of nostalgia.

GUNDAM! NAN DA?!?!?

April 9, 2008

Supacomputa? Cheku? Beemu Soorodo? Cheku? Gundam Iko!

Now that will be a possibility if you have $742 Million adn access to Apache helicopter engines, bullet train motors, and massive amounts of money. According to Takayuki Furuta , the director of the Future Robotics Technology Center in Chiba, Japan, we should be able to build a 60 foot tall killing machine for a mere $1 billion dollars (I say the rest is labor cost).

Next stop, the space colonies. I will have my revenge on Celestial Being.

Gundaniam.

What The Hell am I Going to Read Now?

March 19, 2008

Arthur C Clarke

When I read, I find an author I like and then I go through and try and read everything that someone has written. Arthur C. Clarke was one of those, as he was one of if not the greatest hard sci-fi writers to ever have lived. He is in the pantheon with Asimov (I, Robot) and Heinlein (Starship Troopers) whose books have inspired inventions such as his 1945 article in Wireless World magazine which led to the invention of of a worldwide communications network based on fixed satellites orbiting Eath at 22,300 miles in 1963 by Syncom II.

From the Rama series to his latest series A Time Odyssey co-written with Stephen Baxter (the new Clarke), Clarke’s books were more than just science fiction adventures about robots, they delved into the human mind on how technology has and will shape emotions and relationships. He brought the human aspect to the genre of robots.

He lived his final years in Sri Lanka where he died at the age of 90 due to a cardio-respiratory attack.

Watch his last message to all.

2008 Pirelli Calendar

Pirelli Calendar

What is the Pirelli Calendar?

The calendar is famous for its limited availability because it is not sold and is only given as a corporate gift to a restricted number of important Pirelli customers and celebrity VIPs. The Pirelli Calendar is perhaps the world’s only prestigious and exclusive “girly” calendar, featuring pictures generally considered glamour photography including artistic nudes.

Artistic nudes, that is probably the only thing you remember from the above block of text isn’t it you pervert. Well the link is SFW and really what is showcases is an amazing talent of the photographer. This year’s blending of dark colors with the contrast of the model’s skin really makes the images pop. Very cyberpunk which is always a plus.

Tasteful.

Press Button. Receive Bacon. Enjoy Bacon.

Enjoy Bacon

Over the years, none recently, I have partaken in my fair share of property defacement. By the hands of a paint can or other means (including but not limited to bologna). I never though was able to really gain the skill to tag, just destroy. But some people tag but with humor in mind and I wish there was more of that than just seeing “EH3BOYZ 4 LIFE” or whatever other illiterate shit that people might put up.

My favorite one is above and I will definitely be doing it once I find some place that has a sign as such. The warm, happy feelings I get when I think to myself that in some place, somewhere, there might actually be a bacon faucet is the stuff dreams are made of. Now to find the bacon shower.

Vandalism.

Babylon A.D.

December 13, 2007

Babylon AD

Most people hear Vin Diesel and then start to whine. Sure he has been in bad movies but that doesn’t make him a bad actor. People need to go back and watch Pitch Black to see how well and finely crafted that role was portrayed and built out. So finding out he is going to star in a film adaptation of Babylon Babies sounds good to me.

Vin stars as Toorop, the mercenary, who is supposed to escort a woman from Russia to Canada. He learns that she is manipulated by a synthetic virus and that what lies inside her can be the downfall of the human race.

Think Children of Men and add a dose of Blade Runner and a dash of Diesel. But one of the big reasons too is that it is set to costar Michelle Yeoh, who has starred in greats such as Wo Hu Cang Long (no tigers and dragons for me), Memoirs of a Geisha, and of course, Sunshine.
