December 11, 2009

This is just more links I think are interesting.

Firstly, there is the college humor video of the Tetris god:

You know that feeling you get sometimes when you play Tetris that it seems like the line pieces arrive in the most inconvinient moment? The feeling that the game is intentionally trying to get you? The video plays on that, which is why if you have ever played tetris, it is really funny.

Also, I found music from video games live. Video games live is basically an orchestrated concert of video game musics. I really love video game musics. Not only are they catchy, they set up the atmosphere of a game, so I consider it an important part of the experience. One of my favorite is this one, from Wind Waker:

Two Links of Interests

December 8, 2009

Firstly, I found a blog in which a guy draws fictional characters in the Simpson style. And he imitates the art style very accurately! Here is Link from Legend of Zelda:

The other interesting thing I found is a guy refuting the people who claim the moon landing was false via physics:

And I got to tell you, seeing things like feathers fall exactly the same as a, say a bowling ball, is kind of bizarre, but true. Plus, there is a really cool pendulum in moon demonstration. So check it out!

It looks good, and I can’t wait. ^_^ Oh, and the heroes are wandering around without any help except their wits and guts, makes it look kind of depressing.

Solo Sailing

December 2, 2009

Recently, I found a blog of a 16 years old girl set out to become the youngest soloer to circumnavigate the Earth. Yikes, that takes dedication. The closest thing to an adventure I have come to is traversing Hyrule in Legend of Zelda, which is only a videogame. I know, sad. 🙂 The other interesting thing to note in the About page:

Anything outdoors and on the water, camping, the beach, reading, cooking, weather, fencing, dingy sailing, boat design and CHOCOLATE!

See that? She upped me by capping chocolate. That already makes this blog the second best in the world.

Also, me, being a science guy (especially astronomy), has another thing of interest (thanks to Universe Today) is this entry:

I’m not much of an Astronomer but with all this talk of meteor showers last night, I was keeping an extra good eye out and did see the most amazing shooting star. It was so bright and big that I was actually a bit spooked before realizing what it was. But I can’t tell you what I wished for though!

Bright and big… Hmm… Was the meteor as cool as this?
