Link Loving – April 07, 2009

Egad. I’m all over the place today, like a chicken with a loose anus. :poop: Yes, it’s probably best if you don’t imagine what that’s like. Here are some links to keep you occupied whilst I get my head out of my ass.

Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane? No, it’s a Frenchman.

But this is no ordinary Frenchman. Alain Robert, the man universally known as “The Human Spider” for his unique way of climbing (without any safety tools whatsoever) has been climbing some of the world’s tallest structures since the year 2000. In February this year, he climbed to the top of the 62-story Cheung Kong Centre in Hong Kong and unfurled a banner reading “” near the base of the tower before climbing.

And just the other day on April 2nd, this nutter travelled to London during the G20 summit and scaled the outside of the 14-storey Lloyd’s Building in central London to protest about climate change. Robert climbed to the ninth floor and unfurled another yellow banner warning of “100 months” to save the world. 20 minutes later, he folded it up, climbed back down, and promptly got arrested by the UK police, presumably for being French or something.

Read the full storey (get it?) at The Telegraph.

Work Avoidance Monday: Play Civiballs

Monday is a terrible way to end a perfectly good weekend. I’m always in a funk; it has something do with work avoidance as my extremely-overpaid therapist tells me. She licks her own ass, her breath smells of stanky fish, and she spends most of the day sleeping, so I hardly think she’s an expert in the field of psychotherapy. But she does look very cute, and is always eager to sit on my lap and knead my crotch region for hours on end. Which brings me to our timewaster for today, Civiballs.

In this puzzler that takes place in Greece, Egypt and China, you need to get your multicoloured balls into the similarly-coloured receptacles. Use your knife to cut the chains and release the balls. Play Civiballs at Kongregate.

Winners Weekend: The 2009 SA Blog Awards

I’ve have been nursing a massive hangover resulting from the drinks party held at our place last night. It’s the marching band in my head all traded their musical instruments in for flippin’ jack hammers. Those uncouth bastards. But I digress.

The winners of the 2009 SA Blog Awards were announced last night and posted on the website this morning and in case you missed it here are the results:

Congratulations to all the winners, especially to the pimptastic for scoring six awards! There is no “i” in team but there is in win ;)

White People Problems

From bad tasting lattes at Starbucks, to ingrown hairs, to long lines at the Apple store it’s hard out here for a Caucasian. Just because they are white, doesn’t mean their burden is light.

Zach Selwyn and Eli Braden let it all hang out in the hilarious music video, White People Problems. Check it out below.

Bendito Machine III

Peruvian-born Jossie Malis is an award-winning illustrator and animator who surely thinks out of the box.

His latest animated project, Bendito Machine III features an ancient civilization and their interactions with modern technology. A village elder discovers a television and the tribe is fascinated with the new object, becoming overly-obsessed, and eventually hailing it as a god. One villager sees its evil nature and must find a way to destroy it.

With its minimalist colors and quirky sounds, Bendito Machine III is full of symbolism and certainly one of the best flash animations I’ve seen.

Edit: It seems one can only watch Bendito Machine IIIon Vimeo, so head there or watch the YouTube version below:

Bendito Machine I and II are after the jump.

Omegle: Chat to a Complete Stranger!

Omegle is a neat chat service. Created by an 18-year-old high school student Leif K-Brooks, Omegle lets you have a conversation with a completely random stranger. The chats are completely anonymous, and it does away with goofy usernames, opting to identify your chat partner simply as Stranger.

There is no filtering on it though and people can be completely inappropriate and it probably won’t take long before sex-starved strangers/murderers will be cybering you for naked pictures. I only send photos of my genitals to people I know (and hate).

Give it a try at Omegle and see some interesting conversations at an Omegle tumblelog.

Link Loving – April 02, 2009

Some hours back, I Tweeted something that pretty much sums up my day – “The horrors coming out my bowels are something out of this world ><“. I’ll just leave it at that, your vivid imaginations can take it from there.

Rumour around the ladies bathroom of a local Virgin Active gym is that tainted pistachios may be the cause of the horrible gastric problems people in Cape Town have been experiencing. In any case, let’s forget that shit with another edition of link loving ;)
