This is a simple, short instructional video on what it means to be a man. I want you to notice that Mario Bros. is mentioned. Now when my wife asks me why I play Mario 3 so often in my garage, I can direct her to this video and tell it it’s cause I’m a [...]

Prince Caspian

Posted by The Gimcracker in Beratings, Movies on 20. May, 2008 | 8 Comments

This movie scared me because I thought for a bit that I was not going to like it. Then I found myself trying to make myself like it, which only made me dislike it more. But in the end I was pleasantly surprised as to how well it was able to turn itself around. So [...]

Hypermilers = Stupid Drivers

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gimcrackery, Theory & Philosophy on 19. May, 2008 | 11 Comments

On my daily web surf I came across this disturbing article. It details a guy who lives for hypermiling, which is a method of increasing your car’s gas mileage by making skillful changes in the way you drive, allowing you to save gas and thereby have an easier time withstanding the rising oil and gas [...]

‘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

Posted by The Gimcracker in Manliness on 02. May, 2008 | No Comments

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, [...]
