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 [...]

Cloverfield vs. I Am Legend

Posted by The Gimcracker in Beratings, Movies, Reference Burst Theory on 28. Jan, 2008 | 12 Comments

A few weeks ago I saw a little film – don’t know if you’ve heard of it – called I Am Legend. It was good. Dang good. Yesterday I saw another movie called Cloverfield. It was better. Dang better. And that’s saying a lot because I Am Legend got at least a 2/10 Berating (soon [...]

Music Version of Digg: The Sixty One

Posted by The Gimcracker in Music, Stuff On The Internet on 03. Jan, 2008 | 9 Comments

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, [...]

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 [...]
