Kaossilator

Pretty rad pocket sized synthesizer that uses a touch pad to play a variety of sounds.

Check out the video on the link.

Black Sapote

Somehow I have never come across this fruit in my entire life. Critical Miami has a great photo of a piece ready to spoon from. Apparently they need to be very ripe. It is also used in ice cream, milk, juice, dips and liquor.

Has Blu-ray won?

Saturday, January 5th, 2008

In addition to Apple, Warner Brothers is now going to throw its weight behind the Blu-ray format for high-definition disks. Warner has been the only major studio to publish its movies in both Blu-ray and HD DVD formats. Today, the studio announced that from now on, it would only issue movies in Blu-ray.

Until now, the war between the formats has seemed like a standoff. Of the big studios, Disney, Fox and Sony have backed Blu-ray. NBC Universal and Viacom back HD DVD.

Richard Greenfield, the media analyst with Pali Research, wrote that this marks the end of the format wars: “We expect HD DVD to ‘die’ a quick death.”

thermochromic toilet

Is that seat still warm from the last disgusting butt that was gripping (and dripping over) the toilet seat? The Thermochromic version will let you know.

Mario is still the man

A coincidence he looks like Ron Jeremy? Anyway, Mario Galaxy is amazing. I had my doubts, but they were erased within 5 minutes of popping the game in my Wii. Then Bee Mario? Over the top!

To celebrate, here’s a video of the evolution of Mario all the way through Mario Galaxy (although they could have included some boss footage). AND a cool poster of the History of Power-ups, although it doesn’t include Mario Galaxy:
