Friday Game

I don't really know how to describe this game, other than playing two parts at once can be very challenging. If you're good enough, you can get on the daily leaderboard. See how well you can do at figuring out Poto and Cabenga.

Twittertoons

Take tweets that can stand on their own, turn them into cartoons, and you have Twaggies.

Yes, some are recycled, but the artist is genius.

Shaun of the Dead IV: A New Hope

I Can Has Arachnids?

Since we already have lolcats and loldogs, it's only natural that the meme would spread out to other animals. Well, creatures. So the latest in the line of lolsites is roflspiders.

As a huge fan of the Tremors movie (the first one), I couldn't help but love a game based on it. See if you can avoid the graboids in Tremerz. It's pretty hard to keep everybody alive!

Let's Get Ready to Twiiiiitttttteeeeerrrrr!

Lots of celebrities (or, at least their PR reps) post on Twitter, putting them in touch with their adoring fans. But how dumb are those fans compared to another celebrity's? There's just one way to find out. Now you can crunch the Twitter replies of celebrity fans, applying an intelligence algorithm, and see who wins the Stupid Fight!

(The only drawback is you need to know the actual Twitter name of a celebrity. But they're not that hard to track down.)

Vote for the Best

It's pair-off after pair-off. All you have to do is pick the one that's better; the idea being that the best will eventually rise to the top of the voting. It's all part of choosing the most awesomest thing ever.

The idea is simple. All you have to do is click your mouse button. But on each level, the action is different. You'll have to figure out what to do, and on some levels, do some old-school level memorizing to finish. At the end is a coordination-straining boss fight. Do you have what it takes to conquer One Button Bob?

Burnt matzoh
No, I'm not Jewish, I just like matzoh. Unless it's burned. What the hell?

Ok, and now this is hilarious. I went to wikipedia to look it up, and the picture on the main entry here is the exact same brand I purchased. Their picture looks similar to mine, but you know what? IT TASTES BURNT, SO IT IS.

Lolcats and Trolls

If you don't frequent forums or comment sections on internet sites, then you may not be familiar with trolls, or people that are mean just for the sake of being mean. They'll say thing meant to incite, and then sit back and watch the fireworks. These people are referred to as "trolls".

The internet, always quick to make connections between memes, now combines trolls with lolcat workings to bring us Trollcats.

Journal to the Past

At the very beginning of Prohibition, a widow went on a trip to Europe with a group of women. What makes this trip special is that she wrote a journal about the voyage and her experiences, and that her great-great-granddaughter is posting those entries 90 years to the days at A Trip Abroad in 1920.

This game starts off so easy that you might think it's not a challenge. Especially since it doesn't ramp up very quickly. At first. But pretty soon you're aiming carefully and still can't make the shot. See how far you can get in Alphabet Shoot.

Mad Props

Mad props
Looks like madlibs would be more fun.

(To be fair, the board is now covered with "mad props", which are printed 8.5x11 sheets of paper, complete with a person's name, and gray blocks of boilerplate text of how indispensible they are. At least, I think so; I was too ADHD to get all the way through reading one.)

Getting Periodical

It all began with the original periodic table of the elements. Of course, the internet takes an idea and multiplies it, so there are numerous periodic tables on the tubes. In a flash of meta brilliance, one guy decided to make the Periodic Table of Periodic Tables, complete with links to the originals.

Hot Rod on Ice


The people that live behind me have a hot rod on the concrete pad where the house's detached garage used to stand. This car, as you can tell, looks like somebody's pet project. It has a nice paint job, complete with flames on the sides, but is in an unknown state of repair.

Now, we've had a wild winter, with lots of windstorms. After each one, the blue tarp (which =never= stays on the car, I'll point out) is worse for wear. At the beginning of the winter, it had a small hole over the engine; now the tarp threatens to rip itself in two. As you can see here, the tarp is tenuously attached to the car. Days or weeks after a storm, someone mysteriously pulls it back over Ol' Yeller.

I don't know what kind of car it is (the make or year). Or even if they'll ever finish it. But we're taking bets on when the tarp will be done for.

Short and blasphemous, it's the only non-kid Easter-ish game I could find. Did I mention that it's blasphemous? And short, with a ten-second timer. Also, blasphemous. It's Run, Jesus, Run! (aka, The 10-Second Gospel).

Geek Fool's Day

Most every online site today has April Fool's jokes, from Google to that game you play. But of all the April Fool's things I've seen (and, dude, there are a LOT), there's only one I wish was actually true: ThinkGeek's 2001 Monolith action figure.

The 80-Pound Gorilla

Gorilla on a house!
The "gorilla house" in Ballard. No, I don't know what the point of the streamer from his mouth is, but they tend to dress him up for different occasions, so maybe it's an April Fools thing.
