This is applicable beyond Net Neutrality… and it’s hilarious.

Tesla, an inventor with zero business sense. Surprised they didn’t mention Edison’s love for doing live demonstrations of cooking animals with AC current.

Hilariously brilliant presentation on the major flaws in the calculated statistics presented by the motion picture industry.

The Escapist on Fallout 3

I received Fallout 3 free with my PS3 console deal… the “Collectors Edition” that is.

I’ve put just under 10 hours into the game and although the new turn-based like targeting system (aka “VAT) is pretty satisfying, the game is pretty repetitive. Glad I took the time to play it as now I’m more sure than ever that I want to avoid most first person RPGs.

You like the open world RPGs? Then you’ll probably like this game. However, if life demands your attention, don’t pick this one up or:

1) You won’t get anything done. You’ll constantly be late for work. You’re wife will leave you (though this is more tolerable to spouses than “WoW”).

2) You’ll snap out of a trance, 10 hours in, and think, “Where am I? It’s 2am?” and set out to burn the drug-like media before it tempts you into more game time.

Checkout what the Escapist has to say.

Thief? Hmm… yeah, I still haven’t played that one.

Kevin Smith in Vancouver

Friday night I saw Kevin Smith at “The Centre In Vancouver For Performing Arts”. What night. As usual, Kevin didn’t hold much back, except for some of the personal stories of Joey Adams.

He told us of his new found respect for Walter and Wayne Gretzky and  mary jane.  Both of which seemed to have made Kevin quite emotional.

The most memorable event was when an audience member, Torrey, asked Kevin if he could help him achieve one of the items on his list of “Things to do before I die.” Specifically, Torrey wanted to know what it would feel like to stand naked in front of a crowd. Kevin certainly used this opportunity to it’s fullest. Someone even caught clips of the event, though the highlight was watching semi-naked Torrey (wearing Kevin’s coat) dive across the stage floor to catch a box of peanut Glossets with his hat.

Here’s the two clips I found:

and part 2 of “Show us your balls.”

Karting in Paris

One of those mornings, then someone sends (yet another) Mario Kart video. I clicked and started watching… and although I’m not sure why, I started laughing. It was the bananas… definitely the bananas.

Thanks to AC for this one.

Dark Knight + Toy Story 2

Nice work on the video editing. Fer sure.

Thanks to Vincent Chow for this one.

Learn Sign Language w/ Vid-ucate

I find this funny… yet insightful… but mostly funny. A benefit of working with animators, who couldn’t help but find this amusing, and thus shared it with me immediately.

Food Fight by Stefan Nadelman

I’ve seen Stefan’s work in miscellaneous places, but Food Fight takes the cake. BoingBoing’s version of Food Fight adds some subtitles to identify the events being portrayed (for those of us that need to brush up on our history). After watching Food Fight, I immediately sought out some of his other work and was happy to come across his website Tourist Pictures. At the very least, take a look at his 2007 Reel to see some samples of his other work and to get a good feel for his style of motion graphics. It looks great and he can convey some pretty complex ideas with minimal work (at least compared to 3D). If I had a “Where Words Fail Us” award, he’d get one.

The Liam Show

I’m sure you’ve seen “shoes”. If not, please do so on Youtube or Liam’s home site. Too bad he pulled those good quality Quicktimes off his site. Youtube’s not so pretty, nor are the beats as funky sounding, but it’s all you got now.

Where did the inspiration of “shoes” come from? According to this interview:

I was at a party once talking to a girl about our expensive vices, mine being making short films all the time, hers being shoes. “These shoes were three hundred dollars,” she said. “I got them anyway because I wanted them.” That stuck with me.”
