    Ambient music from Soundcloud and realtime police radio chatter from LAPD.

    @Greasemonkey - Gymkata!!!

    From the same people who brought us, "You v. Watson", comes "You vs. Rock-Paper-Scissors". Complete with analysis of why you chose your decision. Somehow I feel a Warren story here, where the computer becomes sentient, thinks its a god, and proceeds to make humanity worship it through "Rock-Paper-Scissors."

    @taphead - OK, so that is awesome. Time to repeat it for more cities.

    I'm feeling oddly patriotic this evening...

    I *am* proud of the BBC.

    @Kelind beat me to it. I watched that movie as a kid. I remembered that scene in particular and knew it immediately.

    The concert I went to on Sunday - Zoe Keating w/ opener Todd Reynolds - was livestreamed via WQXR. I highly recommend listening to the recording that they posted of the whole thing:

    I love Zoe & Todd is a fantastic musician in the same vein that I heard for the first time that night.

  8.  (9594.114) I the only one who didn't know B-side recordings of the Pogues were out there?

    And they are marvelous

    Cripes, when I think of how much money I spent chasing down punk rarities on eBay, little knowing YouTube would put all the sweet matter on a free cloud in a few years...

    Saturn! HD video of a flyby of Saturn stitched together from photographs taken by Cassini, and a test run for a full Imax movie. 2 minutes of awe.

    Jhonen Vasquez on why Invader Zim was cancelled. ... Along with some interesting descriptions of what it's like to make cartoons.

    "The studio where our offices were served as a kind of showroom for Nickelodeon, not unlike when you go to a natural history museum and you can watch the archeologists and volunteers brush away dirt from fossils from behind a pane of glass or some such similar setup. Remember the section of Hammond’s tour in Jurassic Park, where the tour group is shown the genetic labs where the baby dinos are created, the busy scientists on display for all the visitors to point at or gawk at? That’s what certain days at the studio were like, with the guides walking groups of kids around to watch CARTOONS BEING MADE! Now I dunno if you’ve ever seen animation professionals at their trade, but the last people I’d wanna bring kids to see is some guy trying ever so hard to well up the strength to smile at some tiny strangers through his coffee sweat slickened face, sandwich bits clinging to the beard that wasn’t there yesterday when he got to work but is there now because he hasn’t been home, hasn’t, hasn’t showered or shaved, but is now trying to explain what he does to make the magic happen. Often I’d see such a person dig his fingers into a child’s shoulders and scream at them about how it’s all a sham, how it’s all so horrible and then collapse to the ground, already snoring as the smell from the excrement exploding from their slackened sphincters punches into the tour group’s faces."

    This is the SANE part of the story.

    @RenThing: May 21st. What an arbitrary date. And why can I not get Donnie Darko out of my head? *looks around for Frank*

    @ian holloway: flipping ice a boss

    @William George: that Pine Point documentary, an interactive webcomic of the beautiful/sad.

    @Val A Lindsay II: you have a plan. I bet it has a plan, too.

    @Fookwit: actually, I just hit on the idea that Sheen sounds more like a Card Carrying Villain spouting a This Is Why You Suck speech

    @Sobreiro: damn. perfect. damn perfect, space monkey.

    @Greasemonkey: Gymkata, eh? yes, I knew what it was without looking it up. *shame*

    @taphead: strangely calming, that.

    @twentythoughts: and now I understand why Invader Zim was so mindbendingly awesome.

    @lemon laser betty: here's what I think about paper beating rock
    rock is greater than paper

    Hitchcock would be proud.

    Doggy humiliation conga

    Darth Sheen

    Hey ladies!
    The authors of the study recommend that men stare at breasts for 10 minutes a day.
    Of course there's a video behind that link.

    Ok. I've not been able to keep up with this the last two months. maybe this month will be different.
