Oh Crumbs! It’s a Scanwich

Scans of delicious sandwiches. Why? Why not. I have half a mind to start a copy-cat site featuring scans of my inedible soups. Sadly I don’t think it’ll catch on.

Acid Trip: Drawing Under the Influence

As part of a test conducted by the US government in the 1950s, an artist was subjected to a dose of psychotomimetic drug LSD-25 and given free access to an activity box full of crayons and pencils. What follows is a series of 9 drawings the artist made at varying stages of his trip. His evolving subject is the medico that jabbed him.

Double-Shot Timewaster: Roly-Poly Cannon & Planet Cruncher

Who ordered the double-shot timewaster with the side order of win?

In Roly-Poly Cannon, you need to fire a load of balls at cute little roly poly men and make them fall to their death. Use the mouse to aim – move it further away from the cannon to increase the power. Left click to fire.

And in Planet Cruncher, your secret desire to exterminate worlds has been realised. You need collect a certain number of crystals on each level by smashing together planets of the same type. Use the mouse to draw lines around matching planets to crunch them, then collect the crystals that result.

10 Movies Where Cars Were the Stars

There are some movies where car power outshines the pitiful human element. In some instances the vehicle was a vital component to cover up the head-up-ass acting (yes you, Vin Diesel in The Fast and Furious).

Unreality breaks down 10 films where the actors were completely overshadowed by the autos they drove. Vroom vroom.

Broken Picture Telephone

Did you play Broken Telephone as a child – I certainly didn’t but then again it isn’t always about me is it? Now, Broken Picture Telephone is the made-for-web incarnation of the old game, with a slight variation.

It starts off with some words to describe a scene.

This is followed immediately with an attempt at drawing out the words.

Someone then describes what they see in the picture. This done without seeing the original set of words.

That is followed by an attempt to draw out the words.

Someone describes what they see in the picture. Once again, this done without seeing the original set of words.

The sequence repeats until the game is over. No one is able to see the progression of the game until it ends. See how this Orangutan game ended – it’s quite funny.

If you want to join a game, head to Broken Picture Telephone and sign up (it’s free).

Update (March 6th, 2009): Our intrepid doodler Lucy Furr has gotten involved in the game – see her contributions.
