Dan In Real Life

Posted by The Gimcracker in Beratings, Movies on 24. Mar, 2008 | 2 Comments

Dan In Real Life wasn’t the film I was expecting. I was expecting Stranger Than Fiction and I got The Family Stone mixed with Little Miss Sunshine. Although somewhat thrown off at first, I came to realize I liked it because it was nowhere near as excruciatingly frustrating as The Family Stone or awkward as [...]

Twice in one day! The URL to my specific island on my Ikariam game has an ID of 1337. I don’t know why I haven’t noticed before today. This is not a joke, I promise. I know I could have just changed the URL to reflect the 1337 for the ID attribute, but believe me [...]

Top 10 Most Played Video Games

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gaming, Top Fivers on 19. Mar, 2008 | 11 Comments

I’ve been reminiscing about all the video games I’ve played in my many years of gaming (going on 21 years of conscious gaming). When I think about my favorite video games, three or four immediately come to mind. But when I sit down to write about it and access my mental catalog of titles, I [...]

I’ve been getting quite a few blog hits regarding Ikariam. The game is still so new that I was apparently one of the first wave of bloggers to mention it, and now The Gimcrack Miscellany is coming up in all sorts of search results for Ikariam. Rightly so, as a lot of the instructional verbiage [...]

Hockey. I attend an annual Illini hockey game with a bunch of my friends. If anyone knows me, they know I turn insane with joy when there’s even a hint of a disagreement between two players which could possibly end up as a pathetic, wavering, unbalanced, slippery fight. Had I attended the hockey game in [...]

I just realized this is could be the beginning of a new era for the LOLheads department here at Gimisc, Inc. I know it’s been a while since we’ve posted a LOLheads entry, but that just means we’ve been working extra hard to cook up a batch of the best. After seeing this video about [...]

My brother brought this to my attention. He was dutifully earning rice for starving people in Africa at a website pointed out by Jonathan that lets you increase your vocabularical skills by guessing synonyms to increasingly harder words. He came across a strangely familiar word with an even more strangely familiar word as a possible [...]

21 Accents

Posted by The Gimcracker in Stuff On The Internet on 06. Mar, 2008 | 4 Comments

This girl does a bunch of accents in a row and they’re spot on. When she gets to the American accents I realized that I must be from California. Go figure. Trans-Atlantic accent? Wha? I still say I don’t have an accent and everyone else in the world does. What is an accent anyway? Oh [...]
