Madonna doesn’t have a chance. I’m still pulling for the Steelers.

Saturday Matinee – Island Soccer, ZZ Embarasses A Keeper, Pencil Test, Technological Threat & Rocket Pen

Saturday, 26 March 2011

Great video worth watching. Pure awesome. [via]

Remember “Zezu” Zidane’s infamous headbutt at the 2006 World Cup? He’s running a training camp now. Here’s some more of his dickery.

In 1986, this was state of the art computer animation. Here’s Pixar’s “pencil test” of the most recognizable early computer animation of all time.

In 1988,  Brian Jennings’ and Bill Kroyer’s “Technological Threat” combined digital animation with Tex Avery’s classic style. It was nominated for best animation short (but was beat out by Pixar’s “Tin Toy”).

So now, let’s fast forward to 2011. Computer animation is at its peak with this example of awesome. I love it.

And with that, have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more fun.

One of the great things about international football tournaments (that’s soccer to you deniers) are the lengths that some fans go to get photos posted on the internet:

A fan cheers during the Club World Cup semi-final soccer match between Brazil’s Internacional and DR Congo’s TP Mazembe at Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi December 14, 2010.

Right. Nothing like putting the threaded axle of a bicycle wheel on your noggin, giving it a spin, and enjoying some self-trepanation while watching a soccer match. Next thing you know, your spinning image is posted here.

Saturday Matinee – Chip Test, Unethical Football, Burnside & Woods, Rancid, and Buster Keaton

Saturday, 13 November 2010

Memory chip testing WIN!

Awesome play. (Tip o’ the Tarboosh to Kitty.)

Country Blues, with Johhny Woods and R.L. Burnside. Woods teamed up with Mississippi Fred McDowell during the 60s blues revival.

Burnside learned from McDowell who lived in the next county over, but never got much attention until the 90s. Burnside and his family, tired of the life of sharecroppers, moved to Chicago in the early 50s. Subsequently his father, uncle and brother were murdered there.

In 1959 he returned to Mississippi, and was convicted for murder himself, and served time at the Parchman Penitentiary. He was freed after only six months… via a bit of chicanery.

Rancid‘s “Time Bomb” was a retro ska hit in the early 90s.

Buster Keaton, aka The Great Stoneface, was a classic. Grab a beverage and a snack and enjoy a blast from the early years of comedy. Have a great weekend folks, and be back here tomorrow.

You’re a Good Man, Chuck Brown

Rarely do pitchers wish for rain.  Chuck usually got rain, whether he wished for it or not,  but mostly the downpour came when his team was ahead.  As for Ms. Van Pelt, our crack team of webminers are working overtime,  scouring the depths of the Internestic Oceans, for a current photo of Lucy that doesn’t look like Amy Winehouse.
