Indian Beatles – "Some kinda weird bollywood beatles clones." a bit over-enthusiastic, maybe. [via b3ta]

'The Golden Age of Video' by Ricardo Autobahn – "'The Golden Age Of Video' is a promotional device for the forthcoming untitled Ricardo Autobahn album."

schmooze and abuse

A Common Nomenclature for Lego Families – "Hence, a survey. I asked fellow parents to donate their children for a few minutes, and name a selection of Lego pieces culled from the Lego parts store." i wonder if it the same differences exist in germanspeaking legoplaying families. [via b3ta]

Big Ben (big_ben_clock) on Twitter – "BONG BONG BONG BONG BONG BONG BONG – about 1 hour ago from API" ;P

Why do we have an IMG element? – "On February 25, 1993, Marc Andreessen wrote: I’d like to propose a new, optional HTML tag: IMG Required argument is SRC="url"." that’s how. the answer to why is, because we like pretty pictures of kittens.

Baguette Dropped From Bird's Beak Shuts Down The Large Hadron Collider (Really) – "The Large Hadron Collider, the world's most powerful particle accelerator, just cannot catch a break. First, a coolant leak destroyed some of the magnets that guide the energy beam. Then LHC officials postponed the restart of the machine to add additional safety features. Now, a bird dropping a piece of bread on a section of the accelerator has, according to the Register, shut down the whole operation." one bird and a piece of bread can do that? we are soooo doomed. black hole incoming.

low gravity fail – cute astronaut animation. 😉

The Twitter Times – "The Twitter Times is a real-time personalized newspaper generated from your Twitter account" sort of interesting.

Wu-Note Project – wu-tang clan covers redone as if they were blue note sleeves.

Scientists perform sex change operation on papaya – "Researchers help frustrated farmers by simplifying the complex sex life of this succulent fruit." wait a minute, fruit have sex organs? no way not to remember that next time i eat my daily apple.

Comedy Central orders the Onion TV pilot – "Comedy Central is teaming with satirical newspaper the Onion for a half-hour scripted comedy." sounds like a plan good for a few laughs.

Kerixep – very simple, very nice flash puzzle game, level 26 was toughest for me…

EMI Sues BlueBeat for Selling Beatles Tunes Online – "The entire catalog of stereo Beatles albums will soon be legitimately available in digital, albeit physical, form. Apple Corp. and EMI announced the pre-order availability of 30,000 16-GB Apple-shaped USB drives containing 14 albums in lossless 24-bit FLAC (better than CD quality) and 320 Kbps MP3 formats, 13 short documentary films about the albums, album art, “rare photos” and expanded liner notes, all accessible directly or through a Flash player that automatically loads on Macs and PCs. It’s quite a statement — especially the 24-bit depth of the lossless files, which allows more gradations between volume levels than standard 16-bit (CD-quality) audio files. The only catch — they cost $280. EMI and Apple Corp. plan to release the drives on Dec. 8." when beatles joins the digital “revolution”. i quite like the dongle idea.

anyone gotta bone for Paris? – they both go, yapp yapp yapp yapp yapp yapp…

World of Warcraft ordered to shut down in China again – "A Chinese government agency, the General Administration of Press and Publication, has once again revoked the permit required to operate the game." gold farmers should be happy about this.

Dutch hacker holds jailbroken iPhones "hostage" for €5 (Updated) – "One Dutch hacker managed to find and hack into jailbroken iPhones, though it seems the hacker was more interested in a few euros than malicious ends. However, the incident is another reminder that users of jailbroken iPhones need to be more vigilant about security." cheeky cunt.

Halloween 2009: Making Mario – "They returned home and one mustache later, the Mario brothers were cavorting on the front lawn." i resisted to post any halloween stuff, till luigi and mario were just too adorable.
