I Know I’m Cynical…

Posted by The Gimcracker in ROFL, Stuff On The Internet on 05. Jun, 2008 | 4 Comments

…but sometimes cynicism equals hilarity. Here is some partly cynical, mostly hysterical junk I found on the web over the past couple days. First we’ll start with my favorite t-shirt designs from Busted Tees (I wouldn’t waste my time on that site if I were you). If you don’t understand them all, you must not [...]

What Is An Electrolyte?

Posted by The Gimcracker in Blogging, Sports on 03. Jun, 2008 | 10 Comments

I was reading this post about salt tablets taken during long distance running on this blog about running and started thinking to myself, “why do you need salt if you run for a long distance?” This prompted me to click on the website for S!Caps where I kept seeing the words like sodium, potassium, and [...]

Flight Of The Bumblebee

There’s something about musical prodigies that can cause me to waste an entire work day on Youtube. Today is Friday and I stayed up far past my bedtime last night. That means today is one of those days. I have compiled an assortment of videos for your viewing pleasure. Today’s theme is Flight of the [...]

‘Indiana Jones 4′: Epic Disappointment The Likes Of ‘Phantom Menace’

Posted by The Gimcracker in Beratings, Movies on 27. May, 2008 | 5 Comments

I don’t know what it is with George Lucas and terrible rehashes of once-untarnished film sagas. Everything he touches nowadays turns to dust. If you choose to see a Lucas film, you have chosen poorly. Maybe my brother put it best when he told me “I knew George Lucas had changed forever when he modified [...]

The Sixty One Tips: How To Bump A ‘Revive’ Song

Posted by The Gimcracker in Music, Stuff On The Internet on 22. May, 2008 | 1 Comment

With the release of the new unlocks on The Sixty One, there are a lot of people trying to bump old songs. Why? Because the newest unlock is called Lewis & Clark, and it requires you to bump songs in under-explored genres (classical, blues, country, hip-hop, jazz, r&b, reggae). Seeing as how I only care [...]

Funny Mac Bashing

Posted by The Gimcracker in ROFL on 22. May, 2008 | No Comments

We’ve all been watching for a few years while Mac bashes PC on the (sometimes) funny TV spots. I enjoy them. They’re better than local car dealership commercials, but not quite as funny as the referee training Bud Light commercial. However, I think PC users are just starting to realize that Apple actually thinks it [...]

This is a simple, short instructional video on what it means to be a man. I want you to notice that Mario Bros. is mentioned. Now when my wife asks me why I play Mario 3 so often in my garage, I can direct her to this video and tell it it’s cause I’m a [...]

Prince Caspian

Posted by The Gimcracker in Beratings, Movies on 20. May, 2008 | 8 Comments

This movie scared me because I thought for a bit that I was not going to like it. Then I found myself trying to make myself like it, which only made me dislike it more. But in the end I was pleasantly surprised as to how well it was able to turn itself around. So [...]

Hypermilers = Stupid Drivers

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gimcrackery, Theory & Philosophy on 19. May, 2008 | 11 Comments

On my daily web surf I came across this disturbing article. It details a guy who lives for hypermiling, which is a method of increasing your car’s gas mileage by making skillful changes in the way you drive, allowing you to save gas and thereby have an easier time withstanding the rising oil and gas [...]
