Star Wars Uncut comes online: 2 hours of Kismet goulash in 15-second bites

in Crowdsourcing, Geek, Sci-Fi, Video

The goal was as simple as it was ambitious; as beautiful as it was grotesque; as awesome as it was … so freakishly awesome!  A crowdsourced version of Star Wars Episode IV (A New Hope) in 15-second blocks, open-sourced and using any creative media you happen to have nearby.  Less than a year later, the results are in.

I, for one, will never wash my eyeballs again!

Enjoy it now before the MPAA tries to shut it down:

Imperial March on Floppy Drive

in Geek, Video

My brother-in-law sent me this one – totally worth it if you haven’t seen it yet.  Double-geeky really – combines Star Wars with obsolete once-ubiquitous tech!

Wednesday Wish List – Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina Bookends: Droooool ….

in Geek, Products, Sci-Fi, Wednesday Wish List

Currently out of stock at Amazon, but I’ll be in geek heaven when one of you decides to buy me these puppies.  ‘Course since I’m exclusively on Kindle these days I’ll have to find something else to separate these two nutters.  Perhaps my growing pile of unpaid bills?  That’ll show ‘em!


And we all know that Han shot first, eh Mr. Lucas?

Wednesday Wish List – The Geekiest Corn Holder in the Multiverse!

in Food, Funny, Geek, Inventions, Products, Sci-Fi, Wednesday Wish List

Tired of eating corn like all the other straights?  So was Shed Simove until he came up with Cornobi!  Now when you’re eating lunch by yourself, the cool kids will be too busy laughing to notice the corn stuck in your teeth!


I couldn't find one of these badboys for sale on his website, but head on over anyways for some other fun yum-yums.  Until they are back in stock, you can at least enjoy the demonstration video!

You know the economy is bad when Spiderman is forced to wash windows for a living

in Economy, Geek, WTF?!

If you live in Dubai (or apparently France & Qatar as well), you can hire some poor schlep in a Spidee outfit to come wash your windows.  Can’t imagine wearing that full get-up in the desert heat.


My personal fav in the ‘write your own caption’ category comes from Brainspore @ BoingBoing who points out that “The windows may be clean but the rest of the building is going to end up getting covered in web fluid residue.”
