Lakers 100, Magic 75.

Lakers win by 25. Anthony said, "The first quarter was interesting, but then it got boring." But as Eli and I and any other Laker fan can tell you, the first quarter sucked and then it got good. Three more games of that please and then Allison can spend the summer in peace. On to some linksies.

Nerdiest. Tattoos. Ever.

Toy Story 3. It's never going to end is it?

Travis needs this for our game night.

Listen, here's my argument. I know GI Joe is dumb. It's always been dumb. They have dumb names, they appear to be part of no known military organization, they wear stupid outfits, for God's sake one guy has a parrot. But there's a level of dumb that they've sort of hit and stayed at. And now there's a movie, and beyond all reasonable comprehension whoever wrote and put this movie together grabbed a shovel, broke some ground and said, "I believe I can make this dumber." Well played sir, you've found a way to drill through the bottom of the barrel.

The world's most pointless machine.

Holy. Moly. Best visual illusion of the year winner. Freaky and awesome all wrapped up together. It's Freawesome.

Wish I'd found this on Mother's Day. What happens when siblings try to do something together for mom.

How to keep your cat off the counter.

Lots of videos, for some reason.

Human Target. Awesome. I'll totally watch that. (Assuming I remember it's coming on.)

Remember V? It's back.

Yip-Yip. This used to be one of my favorite things on Sesame Street. And this is cool too. Also, the muppets may have actually been the birth of rap music. And because it's funny, the three worst possible muppets to sing Danny Boy sing...well, Danny Boy.

Imagine you have limitless money. Ok, now, where would you travel to? Close your eyes and think about it...did you pick this place? Cause according to this article, that's what the majority of people surveyed picked.

This guy knows how to flip.

I have no idea what the point of this is, but I ran around it for 10 minutes.

Greed is good. But it'll get you killed in this game.

Fascinating look into people's lives based on what's in their refrigerator.

I like Minus. It's just a silly little comic.

Aerial Virtual Tours of New York.

I'm posting, I don't care if you're reading or not anymore.

I feel it is my designated duty to bring you cool looking game trailers, so in that vein "Project Trico". Which surely someone will later point out to me isn't a game or something, but I don't know, it looks cool.

Oh, it's also my designated duty to bring you movies about video games that look ridiculous. Case in point. Come on Gerard, you were great in 300. Make something decent!

What do the robots want in Terminator? Just to kill all humans? Then what? All they do is build better robots for killing humans. What happens if they kill all the humans? They make better robots to not kill humans? They start on some other species? I think we should make a terminator movie where it's 100 years in the future and all the humans are dead and now Skynet just hunts and kills sharks. I'd watch that.

Even though Lorenzo Llamas is in this movie, I'm still gonna watch it. I'll probably own it on DVD at some point.

The first two pictures from the Avatar: The Last Airbender movie are out here. I assume that's supposed to be Zuko and Ang, who look like this. So, that's not bad, right? Considering it's directed by M. Night Shamalamadingdong and his last movie was about trees that hated people I call this one a win.

Sherlock Holmes. Yes. A good one. Possibly. It's been too long.

Best world design tools ever. And this video made me tear up a little.

Music in the movies can be very important. Here's some examples of how using the wrong music can totally ruin the mood. The Close Encounters one got me.

The Muppets own the internet. That is all. (Slightly NSFW lyrics).

I always need new sunglasses. I would like these.

Maybe you shouldn't buy that.

Procedurally generated cityscapes. Very cool even if you don't know what that means.

Sherlock Holmes. That is all.
