Lakers 109, Jazz 98.

An Engineer's guide to cats.
Oh, yeah, that giant squid they found? There's probably more of them. And they're bigger...
This is just...this is awesome.
. Looks ok.
The Beastie Boys meet Star Trek. Intergalactic.
If you're not watching Scrubs, you should be. See?
This is how you should play Mario Kart.

Lakers 107, Nuggets101.

Well, that'll do it for the Nuggets. The Lakers are also the only team to sweep their first round opponent. Which means we'll get a break (them from playing, me from posting) until the Utah/Houston series finishes up.

So, since we're gonna get some time off, let's link it up a little bit:

Check out the awesome Attack Wing Glider the military's using. I think the GI Joe cartoon inspired that.
And speaking of GI JOE, this lady apparently had no idea the GI JOE team has existed since the 80's, she's lamenting the fact that the movie has totally destroyed that awesome 40's icon who single handedly won WWII (apparently). She even found some bloggers to back up her "OMG what are they doing!" screeching. This whole article kills me for some reason. I mean it's like she doesn't realize this happened 20 years ago. Lady, there was a cartoon!
GTA IV. Should be here soon.
Lots of cool pictures and videos of bioluminescence.
I just don't feel right if I don't give you a game.
Cool Then & Now pictures of Arizona. Mouse over the images to see how things have changed.

Lakers 102, Nuggets 84.

Man, I wish I had some links or something.

This is late I know, but I didn't get to watch the game, so as Han Solo would say, "It's not my fault."

Wait, I have typeracer!
What about Cool Business Card designs? (We should get some of these.)
Or, how about a fascinating array of Ascii Art?

Well, if the Lakers are going to keep winning I'm going to have to hold some things in reserve...

Lakers 122, Nuggets 107.

Another Lakers win, so you get another post. (By the way, that's 250 points the Lakers have dropped on the Nuggets in 2 games. The Nuggets are just...not good at defense).

High Tech Noon. So brilliant.
Um...yeah, I'm just going to let these speak for themselves.
If you have some free time, check out the 50 Greatest Comedy Sketches of all time.
Are you awesome enough to play Pong and Breakout at the same time? Pong + Breakout = PongOut.
And I'm going to end it with this shaky, bootleg video from New York Comic-Con...
Venture Brothers season III preview. If you don't know what you're getting into...don't watch it. If you know what's up, well, Venture Brothers rules. (Includes possibly the greatest GI Joe parody of all time).


Better link to Venture Bros. Season 3 here.

Lakers 128, Nuggets 114.

So, the deal I'm making with myself right now (which I probably won't keep) is that whenever the Lakers win a playoff game I'm going to post. They won today, they play again on Wednesday. If you want a post on Wednesday night or Thursday morning you should be rooting for the Lakers.

I love that Freeman is reading the blog. Not for any particular reason, I just like to read his occasionally, so the fact that he's popping over here every once in a while is kind of nice. And speaking of, every once in a while I'll run across a nice turn of phrase or a clever sentence and it will remind me of someone I know (like if I see somebody use foul language in a bizarre way I think of Dan). But this is one of the ones I saw that reminded me of Jeff, and then I checked my blog and Jeff had posted 2 (TWO!) comments. This was in a discussion about the best high concepts for a superhero:

Seriously, does a high concept get any better than Green Lantern? "He's a space cop fighting alien crime with his magic wishing ring".

So, yeah, that made me think of Jeff, I could totally see him saying that. Anyhooo....

You should know that Eagles are cold blooded vicious killers.
Star Wars in Urban Settings.
Oh good. Advertising is now taking to the sky. Want to enjoy looking at the clouds on a nice summer day? You're gonna see some commercials up there. Thank you scientists. Don't cure cancer or anything...
South Park shows you a glimpse of the worst thing that could ever happen...
I totally want this and I don't know why. Chronotebook.
It's all about Batman. Lego Batman. Batman Anime.
Or, maybe it's all about rapper/animal hybrids: Animal Pharm.
Do you Love the World?
This game...I love the music. And it's so dumb. And you can finish it in like 10 minutes. But I can't stop playing Doeo.

I Have the Greatest Job In The World.

So, some of you know this, some of you don't, but I recently started working for Heatwave Interactive. That would be the company started by Sunsword. Basically, I'm sitting around writing up ideas for games I want to make. This is more awesome than I can even begin to explain. We got our first bit of money in the bank, so things are going very, very, very well. Wish us luck.

Ok, here's some stuff to peruse:

So, the Spirit. Yeah, this could be cool. Check out these pics of Sam Jackson and Scarlett Johansson. Sam is playing the bad guy.
Another cool scene from Iron Man. I can not wait for this movie!
There's a new, longer trailer of the Speed Racer movie. Be warned, this movie has more colors in it than the human eye should even be able to perceive. Seriously, if you think you might be epileptic, don't watch this. Don't even go to the webpage.
Cool Zodiac artwork.
Here's our freaky thing of the day: Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. Um...but with all the birds removed. Yeah.

So, Sunday. Yeah.

Check out the Atari 2600 catalog. I played a lot of those games.This is a pretty good fan made recreation of the Light Cycle scene from Tron.
Hey, did you know they're still making a sequel to TRON? Maybe it's just a remake.
My mom totally needs this for her dog.
And if you're bored you can listen to the sounds of the ocean under the ice in Antarctica. Seriously.
Hey, and if you ever wondered, here's a list of what the number one song in the country was on the day you were born. Or any day, really, I guess.

Oh, hey, no...man, no...don't...don't walk on that!

Oh, you thought I was dead again, didn't you

It's another one of those times where I found a game that totally blows my mind. It's the Magic Pen.
B-Fish found this one: It's the Powder game.
Oh, cool, Mad Magazine Fold-Ins!
You have to love a game that tells you what to right in the title. Oh, the name of this game is You Have To Burn The Rope. When you finish, stay for the awesome song.
Throw the dude.

Windows Music.

That's it for now.
