Music Version of Digg: The Sixty One

So, you are addicted to Digg like me? And you like music? Then The Sixty One is your final destination. The Sixty One, in a nutshell, is a web site where artists post songs and everyone “bumps” (votes for) the songs they like. Then the songs move up the charts and can make it to [...]

I saw a trailer for an untitled movie at the beginning of a special pre-screening for Transformers and I was utterly amazed. Now I finally know what that film is called: Cloverfield, and I know it comes out very soon: January 18th, 2008. I read up on it at Wikipedia and it looks really good, [...]

LOLheads – Requested

Posted by The Gimcracker in LOLheads, Sports on 19. Dec, 2007 | 1 Comment

The request line has been ringing off the hook. My staff has been working after hours to grab as many shots as possible, scouring archives and taking to the streets looking for Belichick appearances. Here are the best two shots they could come up with that matched the requests for Gargamel and General Kael. The [...]

Microsoft’s Own Products Don’t Work With IE

Posted by The Gimcracker in Fail on 19. Dec, 2007 | 3 Comments

There’s this new technology called Silverlight from Microsoft, which basically exists to support fast, cost-effective delivery of high-quality video to all major browsers. When I installed it in my browser, IE at the time, nothing happened. I was supposed to be seeing this shiny, spinning carousel of Microsoft downloads seen over there →. I tried [...]

Casino Royale: Best New Bond Yet

Posted by The Gimcracker in Beratings, Movies on 18. Dec, 2007 | 6 Comments

I really enjoyed Casino Royale and let me tell you why. I got really tired of the Pierce Brosnan flicks which got progressively worse and worse. The franchise needed new life, and a new bond was the ticket. It’s sort of like the Batman pictures which started out great but declined rapidly until we were [...]

This Is Football

Posted by The Gimcracker in Sports on 17. Dec, 2007 | 18 Comments

Week 15 brought us two snow covered games (Jacksonville @ Pittsburg and Buffalo @ Cleveland) that reminded me of what football is all about. I’m glad the Colts are getting a new stadium with a retractable roof that will hopefully get stuck open when it snows so we can have some awesome photos from our [...]

LOLheads – The Belichick Seymour Hoffman

Posted by The Gimcracker in LOLheads, Sports on 13. Dec, 2007 | 3 Comments

Photos of Bill Belichick resembling infamous villains are completely flooding my inbox. It’s amazing just how many faces he really has. You know who else puts on a multitude of faces in order to “trick” his prey? The Devil, that’s who. Don’t try to argue with me, it’s science. I had to hire a small [...]

The Devil Wears Prada

Posted by The Gimcracker in Beratings, Movies on 11. Dec, 2007 | 4 Comments

Keeping up with the theme of belated Beratings, I decided to officially B-Rate a film that I saw in theaters and just recently bought on DVD for my wife. Picture me sitting on the couch sipping Diet Coke curled up under a blanket with a lovely fire burning watching The Devil Wears Prada with my [...]

Colts Rout Ravens; Fans Respond: ‘Duh’

Posted by The Gimcracker in Sports on 10. Dec, 2007 | 3 Comments

The real story was Gonzalez, pictured above as only a torso. Believe me when I say, however, that he actually does have legs, and they easily carried him past second stringer Pittman, who was eventually pulled from the game due to his poor performance. I have two things to say in response to this game. [...]

LOLheads – The Scut Farkus Belichick

Posted by The Gimcracker in LOLheads, Sports on 07. Dec, 2007 | 2 Comments

What is it with me and blog series? I’ve horribly neglected my Berating system and I haven’t been feeding my TopFivers. I promise I’ll do better. Maybe soon I’ll come out with a Berating for Ratatooine. In spite of my better judgments I’m opening up a new series entitled LOLheads. I have no idea what [...]
