If you are confident in your design and development skills, I’m going to burst your bubble. Aviary is a suite of web apps for artists and designers. The software is in Beta and you can use Phoenix, the photo editor, for free. Really, though, the reason I’m pointing it out to you is because of [...]

A week ago I deleted my oGame account in a fit of rage. At the time, my rank was hovering in the mid 600s and I was about to start trying for moon shots. With thousands of rocket launchers, hundreds of levels of mines, 9 planets, and the almighty ability to start building Deathstars on [...]

Spiral Frog – Come And Get Your Music!

Posted by The Gimcracker in Music on 15. Feb, 2008 | 5 Comments

Remember Finetune, Deezer, and TheSixtyOne? I’ve got another one for you, and it’s called SpiralFrog. This one lets you actually download songs and play them on your computer and MP3 player. The downside is you can’t use an iPod (here’s a list of compatible devices). I know I just lost most of you, but for [...]

OMG it’s getting closer! TEASER TRAILER IS HERE: I have goosebumps on top of goosebumps having goosebump children. That’s disgusting. Stop it.

Portal: Chamber 13 in 4 Steps

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gaming, Reference Burst Theory on 13. Feb, 2008 | 4 Comments

This is just amazing. I haven’t been able to beat this chamber in less than 12 steps. I was sure that was the absolute minimum number of steps possible. This guy does it in 4 steps. Four. He makes a few mistakes, but it doesn’t cost him any steps because going through a portal and [...]

Mario Level Beats Itself

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gaming on 12. Feb, 2008 | 2 Comments

Browsing around a website that completely wastes my day, I found a video of a Mario level – a level I’ve never seen before – that is supposedly one of the hardest in the game, whichever game this is. Apparently, some guy figured out it would beat itself if you didn’t touch the controller. Mario [...]

Grammy Observations: Kanye, Shut Up

Posted by The Gimcracker in Music, News on 11. Feb, 2008 | No Comments

I hope you didn’t turn on the Grammy Awards last night. I mistakenly did, and here are my observations: 1) 99% of the music performed and honored is top 40, bubble gum, over-played hornswaggle. The Grammys have become an awards ceremony honoring artists with the top music sales, not the top music. I consider the [...]

Moving Your WordPress Installation

Posted by The Gimcracker in Blogging on 07. Feb, 2008 | No Comments

I’ve been reading post after post about people switching web hosts to get more storage, bandwidth, control panel awesomeness, setra-setra. I felt left out. So I joined HostMonster. I won’t bore you with all the stats, but let’s just say I’m probably getting more bang for my buck than you. All I’ll say is that [...]

We are really exploding here at GimMisc Industries. Not only has our LOLheads™ division been diversifying with very rare images of Coach Belichick (I gave them all raises to $3.25 an hour – they still have to provide their own equipment, though), but our brand new marketing & advertising department has launched! So far, GimMisc [...]

LOL @ Teh Cops

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gimcrackery on 04. Feb, 2008 | No Comments

What if a professional stunt driver was being pursued by the cops? It would probably be something like this. I wonder if the guy in the car giggled just a bit each time he escaped.
