Still Life. A short Film by Jon Knautz

Still Life is a short film by Jon Knautz. It's definitely worth checking out. It can be seen at Atom Films.


I Don't Eat Much Cauliflower, But I Definitely Could Start!

You cannot deny how awesome that is! Scientists created variants of cauliflower that grow bright orange, green, and purple. It looks spectacular. Amazing. Scrumptious. delicious.


Killer Fish!

I think it's awesome that this fish can walk around on land for up to four days! A cheesy horror movie should be made based on this creature, the best thing about it would be that it is real. Look at those awesome teeth!

There is an awesome blog post on ArsGeek about this, you should go read it!

Carl Sagan on a US Postage Stamp

I've just realized that Carl Sagan looks incredibly like Bud Cort.


Photoshop on Linux Funded by Google

Google is funding CodeWeavers, the company behind Wine, to make Photoshop run better under Wine. To me, this is awesome news. The main reason that I do not make the switch over to Linux is the simple fact that there is so much software that I need windows for. This isn't going to push me over, but it's an awesome step in the right direction.

Tatu Motors Unveils It's $2,550 Car

Tata Motors releases it's Tata Nano, it's $2,550 car. It's an India based company, so we're likely to not see this in the states for awhile (just a guess).

It's got a max speed of 60mph and gets 50 miles per gallon.

AT&T Not Staying Net Neutral?

Yet another reason to stay away from AT&T, or switch if you are a current customer. Lack of net neutrality is the worst thing that can happen to the internet and we as consumers should not give our money to businesses that practice such things. Just my opinion, of course.

Video of Los Angeles Artist Liz McGrath

Found this over on Boing Boing, this artist has an interesting style of creating fairy-tale like creatures in taxidermy style. No actual taxidermy is performed in the process.

Lack of Updates

I've been kinda slack the past month or two. Been alittle busy, but i do plan on picking up the pace a bit.

Google Notebook

I'm seeing that this blog is about 1/3 Google news, but how can it not be? I'm continuously finding more and more that this company is putting out that is simply amazing!

Here we have Google Notebook. Combine this with the Firefox extension, and you have a very quick and easy way of creating notes, or bookmarks to web pages for later use. It's also great because you can access it from any computer. I see this as Google's answer to many things at one time in a very simple and streamlined web-app. It can be used to simply jot down ideas to come back to later if you would like. It can also be used to replace your bookmarks in your web-browser, and do a better job of what does. Speaking of, I tried it out, and never really liked it, although I do like what we have here in Google Notebook.

Jump over to and try it out. If you would like...

Aerobie Aeropress Coffee/Espresso Maker

I've tried espresso makers that sit at around the $30-40 price-point, and they definitely leave a lot to be desired. I also cannot bring myself to spend a couple of hundred dollars for an espresso maker that comes closer to actually pulling a decent shot of espresso. The Aeropress actually looks likes an awesome alternative for a coffee/espresso maker. When i get my hands on one of these, maybe I'll write up a review.


The Wilhelm Scream

Apparently has a cult following among many Hollywood directors, The Wilhelm Scream has been used in many films over the last 50 years or so as somewhat of an inside joke. The video above features many movies that the scream is used in.

You can also jump over to the IMDB to find a extensive list of films that have this sound clip in them somewhere.

UC Berkeley Posting Full Lectures and Courses on Youtube

UC Berkeley is starting to post it's lectures and courses on Youtube. They currently have about 300 hours worth of video online now and will continue to expand.

Bungie Has Left Microsoft

This is pretty huge news and horrible news for Microsoft. Apparently Bungie doesn't want to be tied down to making Halo games continuously indefinitely. As much as I love Halo, I too would like to see a new franchise from Bungie having now played 3 games in the Halo series. It's also said that Bungie does not like the way Microsoft runs things in a lot of other respects. I really think this is awesome news! Go Bungie! :)

Bungie has bought their name back from Microsoft, but Microsoft still owns all rights to the Halo franchise.

Cheap Wireless Alternative for the Xbox 360 (Or Other )

The Wireless accessory for the Xbox 360 costs somewhere around $100. That's a lot of money (to me anyways). I found a tutorial that shows you how to convert a wireless router into a wireless bridge. Essentially, you'll buy a cheap wireless router and flash it with 3rd party firmware to make it act like a wireless bridge (which cost a good bit more).

I'd suggest sticking with wireless G if you plan on streaming media to your 360 via your PC. If you only plan on gaming, than B might be sufficient enough. Also, it's always a good tip to stick with the same brand as your other wireless router, although I'd guess you'll not run into any problems either way.

Oh, this can be used to connect other devices wirelessly to your network, not just the 360, just in case that wasn't obvious.
