Feeling sprightly today? Like the world’s your oyster and nothing can get you down? Well it’s time for a reality check as this video looks at the devastating medical, environmental, and humanitarian consequences of an all out nuclear war. It’s pretty grim stuff as you’d expect, so all the more reason for the world’s leaders to come together and rid the globe of their existence. Yeah, like that’s gonna happen.
Every sci-fi nerd has thought of it, what space craft could pwn other space craft from different sci-fi franchises. So here those wet dreams are lived out above the skies of San Francisco as we get Star Trek vs. Star Wars and the Enterprise takes on the Death Star. So who do you think will win? With JJ Abrams directing both of the genres you can’t help but thisk that this might just become a reality!?
All those ego-maniacal humans hogging all the limelight when it comes to those being awesome compilations on YouTube. Well enough is enough! It’s time for the animal kingdom to get its own version, because animals are awesome too, you know? And if you don’t believe that, then just take a look at this already. You’ll never doubt an animal can’t skydive again.
In case you didn’t know, The National is an American indie rock band formed in Cincinnati, Ohio. There was a moment on their last tour when Brooklyn’s (their new adopted home) The National reminded you just how special they can be – and are regularly. I find it hard to believe this will not be album of the year for me. It’s a ‘grower’, takes many listens to appreciate it, but damn is it worth it.
It’s time for that ‘Friday Feeling’ as you slip into the weekend zone – Here’s another delicious dose of pictographic internet hilarity to help round out your week. Specially designed for the lazy web surfer, this gallery can be browsed using just your scroll wheel finger; simply scroll down, lol, then scroll down some more. Couldn’t be simpler!
So a new console was announced this week, it was pretty insignificant so you may’ve missed it because you had some more important stuff to do, like watch some grass grow. It may look like an old Betamax VCR from the 80s, but apart from playing games you can – wait for it – watch TV and surf the web – WOW!!! – If you were unable to watch it live for hours online then don’t fret, you can check out this abridged version that tells you all you ever need to not know.
It seems like there’s a new extreme sport being invented every other day, so here’s Kai Lenny and Pato Teixeira showing you how to Jet Surf, testing out this sport for the first time on the powerful waves of Hawaii. With this puppy you can power you way onto what were, before, unreachable waves. Or, it’s basically just another excuse to get paid by Red Bull to hang out in beautiful locations and mess around in the water. Sounds great, where do I sign up?
HOLY……. SHIT!!!! Matt Smith & David Tennant, the two greatest doctors ever, together! It’s a wonder the universe doesn’t open up and swallow the world whole with this kind of nerdmic energy contained within one room. But fortunately it lets us all live, probably knowing that if it fucked with the time lords they’d come back from non-existence to wreak revenge. And thank God it didn’t break the internet either.
Host of the Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs, Mike Rowe, picks a random video off the interwebs and gives us a dramatic reading of a family photo with a bunch of shit-faced relatives. The situation is tense as they gather together to try to get a shot. Will they fail or achieve in their endeavor? There are so many variables and everyone’s just so drunk it’s impossible to tell. Watch this nail-biting scene and see if it works out…
Micro Machines cause some micro carnage in this stop-motion short, which was mostly shot in-camera with a custom camera rig so that the world of these mini cars was elevated to epicness. The cars duke it out, trying to defeat each other by dropping oil, exploding their opponents up and other high jink tomfoolery. Yee and haa.
Aliens is a great action movie, trouble is you don’t always have a couple of hours spare to watch it. But you’ve probably got a spare 60 seconds, even if it does mean being late for that important meeting. Who cares? So sit back and watch the awesomeness of Aliens shortened to a mere minute and then go and do all that important stuff, like your job or whatever.
Claymation auteur Lee Hardcastle tells a story about a drug bust, a drug bust that goes horribly wrong and ends in Hardcastle’s trademark ultra-violence that’s bearable only because it’s being inflicted in the medium of clay. If this was live-action we’d all be puking our eyeballls out already, just like these characters.
It’s finally here, what we have all been saving our boxes of Kleenex for – after the time-killing first installment of ‘Cum Face or Axe Master’ had us all glued to our computers trying to work out whether the person was an axe grinder or an, ahem, ‘axe’ grinder, comes this sequel. See if you can use your God-given skills of observation to get all of them correct and achieve something worthwhile this afternoon at work, in between taking a nap and checking your Facebook page.
Your email inbox came often resemble scam city, with people asking your to store money for them or seeing if you want your manhood extended — it’s a total hoot. So this short film imagines what if all that unwanted spam wasn’t appearing in your virtual mailbox but at your front door instead. It would be enough to turn you insane with rage.
Everything you thought you knew about cats is explained in this video, like why they always land on their feet, why it lifts its tail when you pet it, the frequency which purrs occur and a whole bunch of other info. It tells you pretty much everything you need to know, except of course why we’re all so goddamn obsessed with them all. Not even the might of science can help explain that.
Monday hits us once again with news that life as we know it will never be the same again, the news that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Have Split will have young girls (and much older ones who should know better) the world over running to empty their Kleenex boxes and wondering how the universe can still exist. For the rest of us there is solace that, whatever sympathy we might have for the couple, we can finally say to ourselves ‘it’s still a better love story than Twilight!’ – Meanwhile here are some links to numb the pain.

J.J. Abrams is Charlie big geek right now, he can do no wrong, making awesome Star Trek movies that have found a mass audience, he’s at the helm of the Star Wars sequels which hopefully means no more Jar Jar Binks. And he’s also got an new TV show out set in 2048 about a cop who wakes up from a coma and has to pair up with an android and start unraveling some conspiracies.
If the guys have got Mickey Avalon’s “My Dick” then it’s only fair that the girls get a version that works for them. So step up Awkwafina and her lol-worthy track ‘My Vag” — and the vag she’s singing about is certainly unlike any other, it manages an incredible amount of stuff, from feeding the homeless to going to Harvard law school.
The current internet landscape and the brands and websites that sit at the top acting as cultural barometers are explored through the medium of 1990s toy adverts in this inventive music video. So Chrome and Firefox become toy robots duking it out and Anonymous and ACTA battle each other as toy soldiers. Even everyone’s fav torrent site The Pirate Bay and Megaupload make an appearance.
There was a time when Monopoly made from sticks and pebbles found in your back yard was all children had to choose from when it came to board games. My, how times have changed! Now you’ve got all kinds of demanding and vastly complex magical, fantasy-type games that seem to take up most of your life to play and complete. So who wants to go first?
