Epic: Ginormous Pac-Man Christmas tree

December 23, 2008

Found in Madrid, Spain.  I wonder what the lady who has a Ms. Pac-Man tattoo on her head thinks of this?

Ms. Pac-Man tattoo on a lady’s head. Why?

December 16, 2008

I just don’t understand people. Why permanently ink your face in the first place, let alone with a video game character from the 1980’s? Yes, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, that’s Ms. Pac-Man tattooed on this woman’s head.

“Mario Kart Love Song” by Sam Hart

December 7, 2008

At first glance, I figured this would have some funny lyrics, but would be musically quite weak.  I was pleasantly surprised by the music.  The artist, Sam Hart, crafts a very nice song about Mario Kart, one of my favorite video games.

You can check out more of Sam’s videos at his YouTube channel.

I wonder how much time this took to setup? Less than it takes to watch. Interesting concept. I want Guitar Hero for Christmas. Now accepting donations.

Video Wars-“Don’t Copy that Floppy”-classic anti-piracy ad from 1992

November 17, 2008

16 years have passed since this awful video. The means to copy and distribute all media, including software, has advanced exponentially, yet the doomsday scenarios in this video have yet to materialize. Long, but definitely worth it. Bonus: awful hip-hop moralizing.

“How it Ends” by Devotchka

November 12, 2008

You might recognize this song from the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack, or more recently from a commercial for the video game Gears of War 2. Check out more of Devotchka at their official site or at their MySpace page. They didn’t realease an official video of this song so enjoy this song with a collection of photographs of the band.

You can almost never go wrong incorporating Super Mario Bros. into whatever you’re doing. Nice work, here.

Bo Jackson was unstoppable. Watch as this guy scores an insane touchdown with Bo. This brings back some memories.
