Funny Picture

Wonder how many people thought this was how it really happened…


I shamelessly yanked this from Digg.

TiltShiftMaker is an awesome site that takes any photo and tilt-shifts it to make it look minature. I took a try with an old picture from Grandfather Mountain.

Here’s the original picture:


Here’s the output from the site:


I think it’s looks quite interesting, and it’s amazingly easy to use.

Easter in December?

Why is CVS already bringing out the Easter stuff? I mean, I understand why retailers did that with Christmas (still crazy), as there’s a ton of money at stake. But Easter candy?

Baby? Burrito?


Is this for real? That must have been a big burrito!

College Football Bowl Game Swag

I had heard that the Bowl Games were giving out stuff to the players, but I didn’t know how much stuff it really was. Over on Fox Sports, they detail what each bowl is giving out. (The navigation is a bit clunky, as it’s a countdown from 20 to 1… not exactly intuitive.)

Anyway, I had always thought that these players were student-athletes, and there were very strict rules on giving stuff to players. Apparently, when it comes to big corporate sponsors, those rules can be significantly relaxed.

It’s interesting that there doesn’t seem to be a correlation between the quality of the swag and the prestige of the bowl. (i.e. it makes sense to me that the Rose Bowl would be giving out better stuff than, say, the Outback Bowl, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.)

I think the worst swag is coming from the Humanitarian Bowl:

  • Camcorder, case and tapes (tapes? really? what is this, 2002?)
  • Winter Jacket
  • Gloves
  • Hoodie sweatshirt
  • Skull cap
  • Baseball cap
  • Commemorative football
  • Travel/shaving kit
  • Nail kit
  • Drawstring bag

Compare that to the Alamo Bowl:

  • 80G Sony PS3
  • NBA Ballers Sony PS3 video game (a basketball game for football players?)
  • Fossil watch
  • Mini-helmet

So given a choice, what bowl swag would you go with?

Cartoon Theme Songs From the 80s

I stumbled on a collection of ten cartoon theme songs from the 80s.

This brought back many memories of watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. But after watching each of the videos, it was amazing that every one of these videos were a minute long, give or take a couple seconds.

What’s your favorite one? I was surprised to see GI Joe, He-Man, and Thundercats weren’t on the list, but someone posted links in the comments.

Meh is now in the dictionary, according to this AP article. My response? Meh. Sharon and I have been using the term for years.

Ms. Pac Man Commercial

Go here to watch an old-school Ms. Pac Man commercial. This stuff was actually on TV at one time? I was speechless after watching it, not knowing how to even react to it.
