Bite Me!

When our mate Abe over at The Given isn’t preening his (admittedly awesome) Johnny Bravo hairstyle, he is busy making custom toys and iron animals.

Today we got word of a new set of mouth-watering prints. Abe combines hand-drawn touches with digital manipulation to create colourful images of some rather ghoulish chops. Have a look at Bite Me after the jump.

Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope in 60 Seconds

If time is money, then I’d wager this might be the best minute you’ll spend today.

Paint Explosions in Super Slow Motion

Have a look at paint exploding at 15,000 frames a second, or at 600 times slower than our human vision.

Cheesy “Game of Thrones” Intro is so 1995

With all its parodies, cat doppelgangers, and amazing fan art, the Internet still keeps showing its love for the high fantasy drama that is Game of Thrones. The eagerly-awaited Game of Thrones season 3 premiere was watched by a 4.4 million viewers, beating the previous record of 4.2 million viewers for its season 2 finale. This season is sure to break some other records too. Unsurprisingly, the show has been renewed for an epic fourth season.

If you’ve ever wondered what Game of Thrones might be like if HBO made it in the mid-90s, then wonder now more. YouTube user hunterlsanders created these apt opening credits for the show complete with video tape effects, cheesy character introductions, and a stirring soundtrack by Queen. Check out Game of Thrones – 1995 Style in glorious 4:3 aspect ratio.

We Review: Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3

It’s that time of year again when we faithfully review the latest game in the Naruto series. Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is the direct sequel to Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 (and not last year’s Ultimate Ninja Storm: Generations, which was more of a filler game). Hope that clears up any minor confusions. I take up my shuriken and kunai, dust off my headband, and head into the battlefield to see what the latest game is about. Continue Reading →

Everyday I’m Drinking

Vodka is the king of the alcohols in Russia with an estimated 1.417 billion litres sold in 2012. Alcohol abuse in Russia is reaching alarming levels, and it is estimated that one in every five male deaths is linked to alcohol. The consumption of beer in on such a rise that Russian government has taken steps to reclassify beer as alcohol, and not food.

Everyday I’m Drinking is a song by Russian band Little Big and tells of the nation’s obsession with alcohol and dire outlook on life. It’s bizarre, disturbing, and depressing given the statistics but it does have rather a catchy tune.
