Best of the Web.

I usually am not into compilation video's of sports and the like but this is great. It has everything from Sports, dance, science and cool stuff. Plus it is sequenced to a great piece of music. Best watched in HD, enjoy.

Get Your Ass To Mars

Check out the first trailer to the new version of the old classic 'Total Recall'. I have to say that this looks quite good, Colin Farell doing some running and jumping. Could be a good addition to what is looking like a good year for sci-fi.
Check out the original Total Recall trailer after the jump.

Ancient Aliens Rule the World.

I have recently been watching a show called 'Ancient Aliens' on History channel. More due to lack of anything else to watch. So I have made it to the 4th episode fairly unscathed. But after struggling to the end of the 4th episode I am not convinced that I am going to make it any further.
For those that don't know, 'Ancient Aliens' works on the premise that thousands of years ago human kind was not doing so well until a bunch of Aliens came and helped us out.

Church in Auckland finally admits God is hung like bull

Yes, following the athiests bus campaign a church in Auckland has decided to do the "tounge in cheek" approach to getting punters on pews over the Chrissy period. They have erected (snigger) a billboard saying God has a big wang.

Photoshop Your Way to Happiness, Kind Of.

Check out the following video for a new web photo compilation application which is said to take sketches and create composite images of your liking.
I have to say that this looks pretty funky, maybe even fun. Can I be bothered trying it out, I dunno, have a look anyway and see.

Tsunami Time... Its a disaster...

Here in the Pacific we are subject to the possibility many kinds of natural disasters. Volcanic eruptions, tropical cyclones, tornado's, earthquakes and tsunami's. It is a constant threat that cannot be dismissed lightly. Anyone of these could strike at any time.
We all know what destruction a tsunami can cause as illustrated by the Indonesian tsunami of 2003. Hundreds of thousands of people perished. But what would happen if the worlds biggest volcano decided to do the Atkins diet and shed some weight. Check out the video after the jump of what could happen to the near by island of Oahu and the city of Honolulu if such a scenario occurred.

The story of Ali Dia

Otherwise known as Bambi on Ice....

Has anyone reading this ever had the same daydream as me? You are at a Premier League game when the team you have supported as a boy is in big trouble; all 3 subs have been used and your star striker has come down with all-over cramp, or a heart attack or something, it doesn’t matter. Anyway, the manager of your team is having a head to head with the ref who starts nodding his head as if he agrees with what the manager is asking him. Suddenly the manager starts perusing the fans, looking the stands up and down and then…..he points at you. You look around and everyone is staring at you; this cannot be happening, surely, this is too immense – you stand up, the crowd goes wild, the manager throws you a shirt. You are playing up front my boy. Breathe it in!

This Is Not a Raleigh Grifter.

Now, as a kid I used to bike everywhere. I loved my bike. It took me all over town. I had a Raleigh Grifter and I am pretty sure there were not too many around. My skills on a bike were confined to getting from place A to place B, maybe riding through the odd creek or jumping from the curb where it dips over peoples driveways. That was it.
Nothing compares to the following dude. His name is Danny MacAskill and he is pretty handy on 2 wheels. Check out the vid after the jump for some mid blowing freestyle.

The Last Last Supper.

I have always been a fan of Leonardo Di Vinci's painting of The Last Supper. Its an iconic image done in an amazing time of art and discovery. It, like many iconic images through history has been Contemporized for various reasons.

Freedom Tower construction speeds up.

I looks like the construction of the Freedom Tower in Manhattan is taking a little longer than some would like. Check out the news article after the jump for city and international representatives who are looking forward to the projected completion in 2011.

Seriously Good Movie Reviews.

Many people out there in the World may have already had exposure to a chap called Mark Kermode, I on the other hand have just learnt about him. He features on a BBC radio show hosted by Simon Mayo which is posted as a podcast every week. He is a well informed bloke in the world of movies and from what I can gather he is somewhat influential.
He has a love of horror movies and an extensive collection of some of the worst films ever made. If you are after a decent weekly and sometime humorous movie review then download the podcast from the 5Live website and have a listen. Well worth the 40-50 minutes of your week to find out what is good and what is not.

Create Your Own Fonts... Fun, Fun, Fun...

http://www.yourfonts.com/ enables you to create a font based on your own handwriting. A couple of snags that come with it. Number 1, only you can view the font unless you manage to get a copy of the font file onto every other PC in the world. Number 2, you have a to print out a form and then write the letters and characters down, then scan the images and load them up to the website......... Breathe...... Then after a while it will spit out a font that only you will see..... Great.....

I just sat through my work colleague writing out his alphabet and then spending a half hour trying to figure out how to scan using the MFP.

Only in NZ - Guilty by Accusation

It is hard to believe but true that in New Zealand a new law is about to come into force that will reverse in one single swipe all that democracy and justice stands for, that is the right to innocence until proven guilty.

The Force is strong with this one...

Now I love Lego and I also love Star Wars so when the two combine I am in nerd heaven.
There have been plenty of Star Wars Lego models made by enthusiasts that are mind boggling in size and complexity but this example really is something else .

Not sure who the builder of this Separatist Type9978 Landing Craft is and
Im also not 100% convinced by the choice of colour but anyways this is damn impressive Star Wars Lego building. To add some context to the size of the model the brown Trade Federation MTT is an actual Lego set.

Terminator Meltdown Update

It seems Christian Bales' outburst has created a lot of controversy and noise prompting many commentators on the web to express their points of view. As per norm most are BS but some do make pretty interesting reading.

Christian Bale, star of The Dark Knight and upcoming Terminator Salvation flicks was recorded losing his toys, lollies, lunch and his mind on set of TS at some poor unfortunate, in the wrong place at the right time DP named Shane Hurlbut.

Some fat guy at aintitcool.com reckons Bale may have been somewhat justified in verbally flaming the dude - read here

Tainted rock the Maiden

So my cousin Cambell is lead singer in the Christchurch Metal band Tainted.
A few weeks ago they were nominated for a comp that The Rock.fm were running to open for Iron Maiden's gig in Chch. Naturaly they won and will be on stage before Iron Maiden at the Westpac Arena Sun 22nd Feb 09.
So If you are a metal fan get down there to support them, tickets seem resonably cheap and the Maiden always rock the house.

Outstanding effort Kuz, Go hard.



Terminator Meltdown

This is absolute gold!

Christian Bale, star of The Dark Knight and upcoming Terminator Salvation flicks is recorded loosing his toys, lollies, lunch and his mind on set of TS at some poor unfortunate, in the wrong place at the right time DP (whatever that is). Bale's onslaught is absolutely priceless!

!WARNING! wear headphones if at work or your mum is near by.

What happens in Star Wars again?

Here is a video in the same vain as the post previous of a girl recounting Star Wars. This time she has not seen the film and is making it up as she goes. It is pretty funny and there is some witty animation to go with it.
