My goodness, my Guinness

March 14th, 2008

Surger

“The SURGER sends ultrasonic sound through the beer activating that instant rush of GUINNESS magic, creating a rich black body with a tight white creamy head.”

Only works with special cans of GUINNESS.

Here’s a youtube video of the suger in action.

JCVD

March 14th, 2008

For a moment I questioned how he could have blown all his cash, then I remembered he’s Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Is it a possible that a semi-fictional account of the life of Jean-Claude Van Damme–if made effectively sad and funny, tragically self-aware of the actor’s joke-like status and resumé, while adding a plot about his involvement in a bank robbery–could actually be pretty great?

#2 Religions that their parents don’t belong to

Garfield minus Garfield

February 26th, 2008

Garfield

Amusing site that takes Garfield out of the comic strip. I’ve often thought of Jon as a creepy loner, and perhaps Garfield is just in his mind…

Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb.

“Patriots’ Season Perfect For Rest Of Nation”

February 7th, 2008

Substitute the Packers in place of the Giants and it would had been perfection.

FOXBOROUGH, MA—As the once-invincible, still-insufferable Patriots attempt to come to grips with their 17-14 Super Bowl loss to the Giants, the death of their dream to go undefeated, and the possible end of their dynasty, almost every other person in America is reveling in what they consider the perfect ending to New England’s season.

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?

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

January 2nd, 2008

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:

It’s a Spiegel world

December 22nd, 2007

Spiegel tent

If you think you hate the circus, I urge you to check out Spiegelworld. It’s usually stationed in NYC, but is currently wintering in Miami Beach. Oh and don’t bring the kids-although I imagine it’s a 21 and over show.

It’s hilarious, dirty, scary (I don’t think I’d sit in the front row next time), embarrassing and exciting for the entire two hour show. Here’s a good review from the NY Times, but perhaps the best explanation I’ve seen comes from Cindy Adams of the NY Post -“an off-beat European circus on acid – Do not miss it.”

Coming in January there’s a late night lounge show starring the comedy/music relief from the regular show. I’ll definitely be attending.

Solar skimmer

solar skimmer

Surprisingly this is the first solar powered pool robotic skimmer on the market. You’d think sun and pools would be an easy connection. Too bad it doesn’t have the vacuum attachment.

Laying brick

December 17th, 2007

Brick maker

This device compacts standard newspapers into briquettes. Interesting concept, but I’m skeptical on whether these would completely burn if compacted so tightly. Also, actually recycling the paper is likely a more environmentally sound choice.
