Sometimes I Miss the 90s

August 11, 2010

Though the 90s are pretty forgettable for many reasons and provided the worst fashion decade of the century, good stuff still happened. Maybe it is because I grew up in the 90s, but the SNL actors of that period were some of the greats. Phil Hartman and Chris Farley were standouts at the time and […]

When Pixels Attack

April 9, 2010

This video is like some sort of awful/awesome acid trip. It made me really want to play Tetris which in turn reminded me of this video: Apparently students at Brown have way too much free time. via

Laser Engraver Plays Mario Theme

more about "Laser Engraver Plays Mario Theme", posted with vodpod I wonder how long it took to set this up and if the dude’s boss knows what he was wasting his time on.

Drunk Dude Falling Down Makes Sense Now

November 18, 2009

Seriously, it wasn’t his fault. He was drunk and being attacked the whole time. Walking ain’t easy when you are getting shot at.

Building Tetris

more about "Building Tetris", posted with vodpod This video is pretty sweet. I was obsessed with Tetris for a time, and whenever I hear the classical songs that were in the game I start seeing Tetris, no matter where I am. It looks like the creator of this video has a similar feeling. My main […]

This Took 1500 Hours to Make

August 25, 2009

more about "This Took 1500 Hours to Make", posted with vodpod I’ve watched this a couple times and can’t decide if I like it or not. The music is pretty awful but fitting with the 80s video game vibe. There are some interesting moments, and I always love stop-motion, but I think the creators were […]

Beer + Video Games = Awesome

August 24, 2009

A new product, the Arkeg is both a home video game system (It comes with classics or you can load your own, as well as your own music) and a kegerator. It isn’t cheap, but I am sure that this will be popular in many a frat house or man cave.

Super Michael Jackson Bros.

August 3, 2009

I wasn’t allowed to have a Nintendo as a child, so I am not as familiar with Super Mario Brothers as most other folks. But I still have a soft spot for the game. This is a pretty cool pop culture mashup, and part of the huge wave of Michael Jackson related content bouncing around […]

The Real Oregon Trail

July 9, 2009

Mega 64 has a number of video shorts where they act out video games. I found the Oregon Trail video the most engaging due to my absolutely huge nostalgia hard-on for the game. Somehow the game designers convinced teachers the game was educational, and so we were allowed to play it at school. I would […]
