‘Iron Man’ Irons Wrinkles Out Of Brain

Posted by The Gimcracker in Beratings, Movies on 19. May, 2008 | 1 Comment

That title is meant to be taken in a good way, although taken negatively it also aptly describes the movie. Iron Man is about the beginnings of a super hero: how the cockiest guy on Earth is convicted with the duty of saving humanity from an evil corporation that he helped build. He has no [...]

Wall-Painted Animation

People say what I’m about to say a lot, but in 13 months of blogging and 120 posts I have never said it. I’ve said similar things, but I haven’t made the following over-generalizing, cliched, oft-exaggerated blanket statement until today:   This is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen.   You must suffer through two [...]

6 Reasons SNL Is Still Funny

Posted by The Gimcracker in ROFL, Television on 13. May, 2008 | No Comments

Thanks to Hulu I can demonstrate for you first hand why Saturday Night Live is as funny as ever. These are ranked from really funny to extremely funny, and I tried to include a nice mixture of sketches, Digital Shorts, and fake commercials for your enjoyment. If these videos make you laugh, check out the [...]

Amazing Mario Video (& Line Rider Fun To Boot!)

No, I’m not getting sick of these, nor will I ever. I found the video below on Digg today, and it’s genius. I was motivated to post it in response to this equally amazing video I saw on LITS the other day. This type of custom level requires no manual controlling, and it’s built to [...]

10 Scary Abandoned Buildings

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gimcrackery on 05. May, 2008 | 34 Comments

I grew up riding a bus to school that passed a mental hospital called Central State on the west side of Indianapolis. It was abandoned in the mid 90s, and has been around for over 100 years. People still tell stories of hauntings at the hospital, and it became especially frightening after it was abandoned. [...]

R2-D2 Projector

It’s Friday. Let’s step out of the void/cephalopod/abyss kick we’ve been on and feast our eyes upon this absolutely spectacular piece of technology. In my opinion, this is the culmination of the entire human race. When God created us He only did it for two reasons: 1) so we would worship Him, and 2) so [...]

Cephalopod Reference Burst Theory™ Rears Its Bulbous Head

Posted by The Gimcracker in Reference Burst Theory, Science on 01. May, 2008 | 1 Comment

There has been an explosion of references to squid & octopuses (cephalopods) since my first post about them. I have been putting these references in the comments of the post so as not to clutter up The Gimcrack Miscellany, but with the two new references today this phenomenon needs to have its own post. First, [...]

The Guatemala sinkhole.

330 feet deep. Swallowed 12 homes suddenly. The pit emitted foul odors, loud noises and tremors, shaking the surrounding ground. A rush of water could be heard from its depths… I have a fear of voids, so that’s all I wanna know.

I’m Afraid Of Cephalopods

Posted by The Gimcracker in Science on 25. Apr, 2008 | 8 Comments

Ever since I can remember I’ve had a real fear of the following things (from least to greatest): 1. Voids 2. Cephalopods While you’re glaring at me for using a big word that I obviously found on Wikipedia, let me touch on #1. Voids frighten me. Remember ‘The Nothing’ from The Neverending Story? That was [...]

How To Screw Capital One

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gimcrackery on 24. Apr, 2008 | 3 Comments

You know those business reply mail envelopes that clog up your mailbox from stupid junk mailers like Capital One – the ones that say “No Postage Necessary If Mailed In The US”? We both know that postage is, in fact, necessary to mail stuff. So, who is paying for this? It’s not you, me, or [...]
