...And Here Is A Hamster Eating A LOT Of Cookies.

Told ya.

The Kitte - Computer Animated Short Film From 1967.

A Russian computer animation from 1967, programmed by Niklaevich Konstantinov (mis-spelled in the intro).

Got An Afternoon To Waste?

Well, you might as well check off all of Greg Rutter's Definitive List of The 99 Things You Should Have Already Experienced On The Internet Unless You're a Loser or Old or Something.

Have fun!

The Tube Bar Prank Calls.

Here's the Wikipedia page for the legendary "Tube Bar Prank Calls", the legendary series of calls with funny names "I'm looking for a Hugh Jass! Is there a Hugh Jass in here?" that inspired the running gag on The Simpsons.

If you would like a recording of it, their webpage is here.

How To Give Your Photos A Retro Comic Book Effect.

By accident, I found this cool Photoshop tutorial that teaches you how to render a photograph to look like an old halftone-printed comic book.

Goths In Hot Weather.

You get what you pay for with this really fun blog: endless pics of Goths, out in the sun, looking miserable. Which is, coincidentally, similar to the way they look indoors; just sweatier.

Don't Make Them Drag You Down To Club Centipede.

Wow. This commercial is pretty psychotic. I like the upbeat music playing as everyone is dragged underground to their deaths. A little bit of looking around, and it seems like this commercial is a sequel to this classic:

Excellent preview of a redo of earlier Mega Man games to include 3-D elements. Here is the author's webiste.

Dragon's Lair - Original Arcade Ending.

Found a cool video of the ending of the Don Bluth-animated arcade game "Dragon's Lair".

Peter Cullen (Voice Of Optimus Prime) Says "Autobots, Roll Out!"

Yep, that totally happens.

Cartoon-Based 80s Band Covers Song By Drowned Chick From Lethal Weapon 2.

The above is from the early-80s Saturday Morning Cartoon Kidd Video; in which a teenage garage band gets pulled into a magical dimension of music. Each episode had a music video from a performer they had to rescue, and at the end the band did a video of their own; mostly covers but a couple of originals written by the show's producers.

This song in particular was really interesting, as it is a cover of British pop group 8th Wonder.

Recognise that singer? That's Patty Kensit, who played Rika van den Haas in Lethal Weapon 2, love interest and infamous victim in the "thrown off the pier in a straight jacket" scene.

Wizard ROCK!!!

With the new Harry Potter movie a little over a month away, I thought I'd treat you with a new genre of music, called Wizard Rock, which was created by the band "Harry and the Potters" in 2002. It's Harry Potter themed music. Here's some choice videos.

Switchblade Kittens - "Ode to Harry"

Harry and The Potters - "Voldemort Can't Stop The Rock"

Draco and the Malfoys - "Potions Yesterdays" (my favorite wizard rock band)

If this isn't the epitome of dorkstuff, then what is?
