Makin’ Bacon Pancakes

Here is a little song about making bacon pancakes. Why? Because bacon.

On a related note: if you’ve never made bacon pancakes, Martha Stewart dishes out a recipe although she doesn’t add glorious meat to the batter nor does she candy the bacon. That is a real downer, Martha.

Oh, hit the jump if you want to hear Rebecca Sugar singing the same ditty that she wrote for the “Burning Low” episode of Adventure Time.

People Are Awesome 2013

If there’s anything for making you feel well and decently inadequate, then it’s watching videos of people doing awesome things. Let’s get you feeling properly down by showing almost five minutes of loads of people doing amazing stuff, shall we? The video was uploaded by a band member of the group Hadouken, so naturally the it features a track of theirs as well, called “Levitate”. The music is awesome, the people are awesome, and they can all do things you can’t. Feel good, now?

Meet Charlene, the Quadrotor With a Machine Gun

By his own admission, Dmitri Potapoff over at FPSRussia has seen some pretty crazy shit but Charlene is unlike anything he has ever seen. The Charlene that he is referring to is a prototype quadrotor that has a submachine gun mounted on it. Charlene can fly up to 50 KM/h and can soar up to 400 metres above the ground.

In this tech demo, Dmitri shows how Charlene deals with some unwelcome guests. She also lights up a dinner party that she wasn’t invited to.

Mobius Strip Music

A Möbius strip is a surface that only has one side. Take a strip of paper, put a half twist on it, loop the two ends and you’ll have a physical representation of this object. Cartoonist and writer Sam Wilson plays with the twisted paper model in a delightful way.

Wilson composed and punched out a piece of music onto a Möbius strip of paper and cranked it out on a little music box. Listen as he plays the normal melody and then the inverted version where the high notes are now the low notes and vice versa. It’s a beautiful tune. I could listen to it for ever.

And Here we see David Attenborough in his Natural Habit

Observe the specimen, Sir David Attenborough. In 2012, the natural history filmmaker celebrated an astonishing 60-year career documenting the natural world that we live in.

We Review: Lego The Lord of the Rings

Traveller’s Tales have been on a roll with the number of quality Lego games they’ve been producing lately, and the latest game in their stable is Lego The Lord of the Rings, based more on the movies than on the books. How does the jaunt across Middle Earth compare as a Lego adventure? I took my trusty Mithril controller in hand to find out. (Please note that this review is strictly for the PS3 and Xbox360 versions of the game. Other versions may differ drastically.)

The Cat With Hands

Fluffy might have a sickly sweet look on its face, but know that cats has been plotting the downfall of humanity for hundreds of years. They are devious enough but can you imagine what they would get up to if they had hands? It’d be stuff of nightmares.

British filmmaker Robert Morgan explored the scary idea back in 2001. A mixture of live-action and stop-motion animation, The Cat With Hands opens up with an old man recounting the old folk tale of a fingered feline. See what transpires below.

Bad pussy!
