Woah Dude, Epic Roof Jump!

While sports people are tumbling all over the place in the Commonwealth Games, Ethan Swanson is engaging in some urban gymnastics in Chicago, Illinois. The professional stunt man donned some GoPro gear and decided to leap off one roof onto another and slide down it, in the hopes of landing with his feet firmly planted on a neighbouring spiral staircase. It’s high degree of difficulty, did Swanson nail the execution? Find out below.

Blackboard Wars II: Stop Motion Fun

Stop motion animation is something that’s been part of our entertainment for a long time, so it’s fun to see a creative take on it. This particular well-shot fun short film come from Japan, and is called Blackboard Wars II. It mixes up live action with blackboard animation, and does so with brilliant effect.

And if you liked that, there’s more of that sort of thing where it came from.

Film Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

Hands up those of you who had never heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy before this year. That’s a lot of hands, but not as many as I’d expected. Those who follow Marvel’s comic universe—and the Avengers in particular—will be more than a little aware of the Guardians, but those who know Marvel for simply Spider-Man or The Avengers have something wonderful in store. Come, let me tell you about it.

Batman Does Death Metal

Batman rocks out with his cape out in this most hilarious music video. The caped crusader teams up with Robin (drums), Red Hood (bass), and Nightwing (guitar) for a head-banging rendition of Face Fisted by DETHKLOK.

So strong my face is
You punch, break fingers
Kick me, you’re limping
Stab me, you’re bleeding
I am be angerous now
You throwing rock at me
Hit eye and it no hurt me
I’m strong, you’re not
You’re not

The lyrics are extremely fitting for the situations that Batman often finds himself in and the animations are hilarious to boot. Check out BATMETAL below.

We Review: Wayward Manor

Amongst the well-read (and even the not-as-well-read), Neil Gaiman is a familiar name, and renowned for such works as Coraline, The Sandman, and The Graveyard Book. So it’s with some excitement that I discovered that Mr Gaiman was helping to work on a video game. The game—Wayward Manor—is now available for purchase via Steam, and I’ve taken to haunting houses to review it for you. Take my hand and I’ll show you just how wayward an entire manor can get.

Take Me To The Movies

Nothing beats the excitement of watching a movie on the silver screen but at R75 a ticket, it’s hardly the attraction it once was. Catching it on the home cinema certainly diminishes the scale but at least there’s never a queue for snacks, the toilets are clean, and the cinema doesn’t smell of foot. With that in mind, we planned a special evening.

If you’re familiar with Flight of the Conchords, you’ll know that Wednesday night is business time. But for Mission Samsung, we put our romantic interlude aside for a group activity. It’s not what you’re thinking, sies on you :p

Hello, LED!

You may or may not know but Onelargeprawn has been invited to participate in #MissionSamsung, an 8-month challenge that tasks bloggers to take select Samsung products for a spin. This is challenge 2 and we’ve got our eyes on the 40″ Series 6 Samsung LED Smart TV. In the coming weeks, we’ll be posting about our experiences with it right here.

To start off we wanted to get acquainted with LED TV technology so we tasked Gavin, a tech enthusiast over at Samsung, on a mission of his own. He needed to answer our questions, but keep it as easy to understand as possible and break that tech jargon for normal consumers such as ourselves.

Hit the jump to check out our LED Q&A with Gavin.
