Bembo's Zoo

If you have a few minutes you should really check out the site Bembos' Zoo. It's a flash animation site that features the typeface Bembo, which is than animated into different animals. Using a group of only a single letter, the font whimsically animates into a zoo animal. So for instance a bunch of letter M's animate into a monkey, the letter Z into a zebra and the letter E into an elephant, etc, etc.... This site isn't something only a typographer or design students would be interested, this is something that will definitely interest everyone and allow you to waste some time at while checking out each and every letter. I guarantee it or I'll give you your money back. So go check out Bembos' Zoo.

Spiders on Drugs

Ever wonder what a spider would act like if it was on some type of drug like crack or maybe marijuana? Well you won't beleive it but I came across this little known scientific video that was made soem time in the 60's. A scientist named, Dr. Peter Witt gave various spiders different types of drugs and video taped the effects that the drugs had on the spiders. You really have to see this video to believe it, it's really interesting.

Flash Element
Kill the Creeps

I think I just might of discovered one of the best time wasting games yet. I really don't know how to discribe this game. There is a maze and than there are "creeps that are trying to get thru the maze. You need to stop them from doing that. How might you stop them, well by building attacking towers, that will rain down a whole lot of hurt upon those menacing "creeps" trying to get thru the maze. In the meantime you aquire gold with each "kill". With this gold you can build new towers and upgrade your old towers. This game is really addicting, actually I'm playing it as I type this blog post up. So go check it out, but you've been warned.

Only You (live)

One of my favorite Portishead songs. Does anyone know what has happened to Portishead and where they've might of gone? It'd be great if they put out another album.

Etch A Sketch

The majority of us all had an etch a sketch growing up and if you didn't maybe you should call your parents and tell them that they deprived you of your childhood. Anyway, it is with great pleasure that I bring you the online version of Etch A Sketch. This will surely provide you a few minutes of fun while you toil away in your cubicle. Maybe during that important business meeting you can practice taking notes using the Etch A Sketch? Go forth and Etch A Sketch.


While growing up did you ever take a magnifying glass and use it to magnify the light of the sun and burn or set things on fire? Maybe you even set ants on fire, while doing this.(Yes I now that sounds cruel). Did you ever dream of being able to do it on a much larger scale and possibly play God with your giant magnifying glass? Well if so than you really have to check out this game. It's called Antcity. Basically you have a huge magnifying class and a Gods eye view. Down below you is a city intersection, complete with cars, people and old ladies waking their dogs. Well need I say more? Go check it out now and I guarantee you that you'll have fun, I know I did.

The Boston Panic of 2007

So by now everyone in the US has heard of what is being known as the Boston Panic. Two artist in conjunction with Turner Broadcasting & The Cartoon Network put up square foot lite brite signs that were hung up in various parts of the city, featured a character from Aqua Teen Hunger Force, a Cartoon Network cartoon. These lite brite boxes where mistaken for terrorists bombs. Here is a video which shows the two placing the lite bright devices, which clearly don't look like bombs around the city of Boston.

I ask you again do you think the reaction that this advertising campaign has gotten is justified or just a big waste of time? The mayor of Boston plans on suing Turner Broadcasting, is that just a waste of tax payers money? Is it a waste of tax payers money and government employees time to prosecute the two individuals respsonsible for this? Should that money be spent on possibly training their police officers on how to recognize a bomb from a lite bright? The two perpertrators of this panic, Peter Berdovsky, 27, and Sean Stevens, 28 where released from prison on $2,500 cash bond after each pleaded not guilty to placing a hoax device and disorderly conduct for a device found Wednesday at a subway station. They immediately were hounded by the media and this is the video of it. If you do anything today you should watch this video. They refuse to talk about what has happened and instead want to only talk about hairstyles from the 70's. It's genius, they end up forcing the reporters to ask them questions only pertaining to hair.

Also watch this weeks Time Wasting Video which is a response to the Boston Panic of 2007.

Time Wasting Video of the Week!

So this week's time wasting video is in response to the Boston Terrorist plot that actually turned out to be an advertising campaign gone wrong. The square foot lite bright signs that were hung up in various parts of the city, featured a character from Aqua Teen Hunger Force, a Cartoon Network cartoon. This was part of an unconventional ad campaign blitz for the show on Cartoon Network. You can read the full story here

Similar signs were placed in other major cities and none of those cities reacted the way Boston did. So do you think Boston overreacted or was their reaction justified?

Anyway here's the Time Wasting Video of the Week!

I really don't know anything abou tBloodninja just that he was some guy(I'm assuming he was a guy) that would do internet pranks, much like the prank phone calls of the olden days before *69. He engages unsuspecting seekers of cybersex and then has an improvisational conversation with them. It's hilarious stuff. Here's one example entitled: Aight, I put on my robe and wizard hat

bloodninja: Baby, I been havin a tough night so treat me nice aight?
BritneySpears14: Aight.
bloodninja: Slip out of those pants baby, yeah.
BritneySpears14: I slip out of my pants, just for you, bloodninja.
bloodninja: Oh yeah, aight. Aight, I put on my robe and wizard hat.
BritneySpears14: Oh, I like to play dress up.
bloodninja: Me too baby.
BritneySpears14: I kiss you softly on your chest.
bloodninja: I cast Lvl. 3 Eroticism. You turn into a real beautiful woman.
BritneySpears14: Hey...
bloodninja: I meditate to regain my mana, before casting Lvl. 8 Cock of the Infinite.
BritneySpears14: Funny I still don't see it.
bloodninja: I spend my mana reserves to cast Mighty F*ck of the Beyondness.
BritneySpears14: You are the worst cyber partner ever. This is ridiculous.
bloodninja: Don't f*ck with me bitch, I'm the mightiest sorcerer of the lands.
bloodninja: I steal yo soul and cast Lightning Lvl. 1,000,000 Your body explodes into a fine bloody mist, because you are only a Lvl. 2 Druid.
BritneySpears14: Don't ever message me again you piece of ****.
bloodninja: Robots are trying to drill my brain but my lightning shield inflicts DOA attack, leaving the robots as flaming piles of metal.
bloodninja: King Arthur congratulates me for destroying Dr. Robotnik's evil army of Robot Socialist Republics. The cold war ends. Reagan steals my accomplishments and makes like it was cause of him.
bloodninja: You still there baby? I think it's getting hard now.
bloodninja: Baby?

You can see other improvised cybersex chats Bloodninja engages in here
If you Google Bloodninja you can find more transcripts of pranked cybersex chats he's had with his unsuspecting victims.

I'm not sure if he's still doing this or if anyone has figured out who he is but I just want to say that this is classic stuff.
