Bandits At 3 O'Clock.

Hello! I trust you all had a fantastic Christmas? If you didn't, go back and try again. I'll wait here.

All back? Good. I have a video for you. It's a simple concept, some dude flies a RC Plane with a camera attached while some other dudes try to hit it with fireworks. Then they take the camera footage from the plane and stick some AC/DC over the top and whack it on youtube. Then yours truly finds it and writes a few words about it before embedding it in a blog post, then you click on it and watch it for a while. Then we all go on with our lives. Sound like a plan? Marvellous!

Bigger Tree.

Holy Crap, it's getting very close to Christmas now, isn't it? I just finished wrapping my presents and I have a Christmas dinner to cook tomorrow. My first ever roast dinner in fact. Let's hope it goes well. If it does, there may well be pictures.

But for now, here's a link that fills me with a mix of joy and despair. It's a news article about something cool (joy!) but it's from the Daily Mail website (despair!).

I'll link it anyway, then go and have a shower. It's about a dude who purchases a 50ft Christmas tree then transports it home attached to a G-Wiz(!) and uses it to create an impressive illusion.

Anyway, See For Yourself.

Blarg, I feel dirty.

Following Yonder Star Power.

I'm going to have to change the layout of this site. I can't embed certain videos because they're too wide. Anyway, you don't care about my html problems, you just want some distraction, right?

I got you covered.

Every year, someone somewhere rigs up an insanely complicated fairy-light display that flashes and twinkles in time to a piece of music. Impressive, but surely it's a formula that could be improved upon.

Yes it is. You could make a christmas light display that can be used to play Guitar Hero! Just an example, like.

Jangle Balls.

'Tis the season for festive remakes of existing flash games. Now, in some cases that can be a lazy palette swap, but done properly, it can mean new levels, new mechanics AND a palette swap.

Which is how it is with this holly jolly version of previously plinked 'Civiballs'. Joy to the world.

It's still a case of getting the right balls in the right coloured containers, but now there are candles, toys, santas and snow!

Civiballs Xmas Level Pack. Go!

Ho Ho Hoh My God!

Right, it's time to start getting festive all up in the place. From here until Christmas, it's going to be nothin' but holly jolly plinx.

Starting with Sketchy Santas. It's a blog dedicated to photos of kids sat on Santa's knee, which is a timeless holiday image. Unless the Santa looks like this:

WAH! No wonder the kid looks terrified. So yeah, a collection of frightening Father Christmasses. Fill your boots.

Sketchy Santas.

Howdy. Not much to say this time. just want to report that the wonderful band OK Go have a new album coming out next year and have released the first single from it.

They seem to be making a habit of bringing out great music videos with each new single. Exhibit A. Exhibit B.

This time is no exception. The video for new single 'WTF' is the most visually interesting I have seen yet and is destined to be ripped off by a bank advert just like last time.

See for yourself: OK Go - WTF.

Pow! Oof. Pow! Oof. Pow! Oof.

Good afternoon. How is everyone? Glad to hear it.

Today's link is simple. It's a blog dedicated to sets of 2 or more photos that have been taken very close together. These are then turned into an animated .gif and the results are strangely, hypnotically, funny.

For example:


The Whole Blog is pretty cool but it really peaks around about This One.
