This is a most excellent post from 11 Points that includes the classic NES tricks we will never be able to forget.
Say after me... Up, Up, Down, Down, Left...
Perhaps in a bit of penance for my previous vaguely mean-spirited post, I present Happy News, a newsblog that promises to always provide positive, uplifting stories. Kind of like if Fark was only allowed to post under the "Sappy", "Spiffy", "Cute", and "Hero" tags.
A bit more mean-spirited than stuff we usually post on Dorkstuff, but this is a short post on the Fun Tuna blog where pictures of the uncomfortable positions of passed-out drunks are compared to actual Yoga positions.
This is the link to the page on the Goldbaby Productions site where they have all the free goodies, including the infamous "Tape 606" sample bank (classic samples from the Roland TR606 recorded onto tape and then re-sampled as .WAVs, giving a bit of a low-fi flavor to them). Enjoy.
Prepare for some weirdness kids. In this strange essay from Metaphilm, the elements and charachters of the film Fight Club are re-arranged and lain side-by-side with elements of the classic 1980s comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. Not sure if I'm sold on the idea, but it was a fun read.
DM Of The Rings reimagines the Lord Of The Rings movies, as played by a bunch of role-players that had somehow never heard of the Tolkein series, using stills from the movies. Pretty funny stuff.
Atlas Obscura is, basically, a collection of reports of oddities and strangeness from all over the world; sort of a "Ripley's Believe It (Or Not)", but without the "(Or Not)".
The above pic links to the aptly named Cheese-Burger.net, which offers recipes, stories, and games(?) that are all about the burger.
In case you wanted something more intense, you could always visit the Cheese and Burger Society's website, which chronicles 30 of the greatest burgers ever ma... wait, is that Patrick freakin' Warburton?
Tiny Kitten Teeth is a gorgeous, adorable webcomic done in ink and watercolor giving it a retro late-50s/early-60s vibe. Unfortunately, it looks like they haven't updated it in a while, but hopefully that will change.
