Halloween means ‘Thriller House’

Written by

Comments: 1

Making a light show takes talent, but programming a crazy detailed light show in front of your house with all 6 minutes of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” takes a ridiculous amount of skill.

Thanks, KJ92508 for this awesome new addition to your light show line-up on YouTube. I know you must get this a lot, but I wish you were my neighbor.

Enjoy the thousands of flashing lights and singing pumpkin faces.

Happy Halloween!

How to make “special effects” actually mean something

Written by

Comments: --

So this may be every photography teachers’ favorite video to show how camera effects like depth of field focus and make us perceive the world through camera film. The short film “The Third & The Seventh” by Alex Roman shows us how well shots can be composed. Most folks show it to their friends and students only to reveal its “secret” after they’ve taken in at least a few minutes of its grandeur.

Ready for the big reveal? If you haven’t already, watch the video first and then read on.

At Kronikle, a contest to dress up as a ninja and photobomb unsuspecting non-ninjas:

Kidrobot and Shawnimals are teaming up for real kick-butt promotion, the Hidden Ninja Photo-Bomb Contest! We challenge you to channel your favorite Ninjatown character by:
1. suiting up ninja-style, (yeah seriously, dress up like a real ninja!)
2. stealthily positioning yourself in a public place without being detected, and
3. photographing yourself with as many clueless bystanders in the shot.
*Self timers or side kicks recommended. Photoshopping of bystanders prohibited.

I’m rather a fan of this image:

But this one took away the grand prize (a lot: n iPod Touch, Trees of Doom game, a full set of Ninjatown Wee vinyl series, a Shawnimals Custom iPod Touch case, Wee Devil plush, Ninjatown Vol.1- Adventures of Wee Ninja, Ninjatown Micro Plush 2.0 and various buttons and stickers):

Grooveshark’s free music service makes listening to video game soundtracks a breeze

Written by

Comments: --

Nowadays when I get a hankering for the obscure ditties in the Fallout 3 soundtrack, I head over to Grooveshark. The service provides an AJAXian music player with instant access to millions of full songs, has incredibly flexible search capabilities, and doesn’t require an account to store your playlist.

Oh yeah, and it’s FREE! Also, the operation seems legit and paid-for so it’ll probably stick around for a while.

Vulcans do not approve

Written by

disapprovingvulcans.dreamwidth.comA vulcan’s steep eyebrows and stern expression makes for great disapproving scowls. A Dreamwidth community headed by user noarrows started to chronicle these moments of Vulcan disapproval from all over the Star Trek canon, and has already has 10 images. Let’s hope Disapproving Vulcans picks up so we can see more disapproving glares like this gem to the right.

Sunday Web Short: “The Big Winner” by Rubber House

Written by

Comments: --

Rubber House is a new animation studio based out of Melbourne, Australia. In its new animated short “The Big Winner” a homeless chinchilla gains a suite of super powers after falling into a vat of waste from a downtown Melbourne Arby’s. He uses his newfound super-powers to save the world from a bunch of racist ninja robots who’ve kidnapped Kylie Minogue and enslaved all of Chinchilla kind.

Actually it’s not about that at all.

But it really is a pretty freakin awesome short.

Enjoy.

in this depressing melange of popular geekdom — including movies, games, polka, and the failed economic policies of the Bush presidency — some guy dressup up as Boba Fett plays the Song of Storms from Zelda on an accordion outside New York Comic Con.

I just wish that one kid had turned his formidable zombie ass-kicking skills on that obnoxious “reporter.” Now that would make for some good TV.
