A trailer for the highly anticipated side project freddiew’s group was working on:

The full 1st episode is actually up over at their website RocketJump.  I am VERY impressed.  I expected no less out of the freddiew crew…  and they definitely delivered.

The characters are pretty over the top, the weapon handling looks good, and the video game jargon is all on point.  I highly recommend you watch it.

Some very neat special effects in this one:

I especially liked the blue shell from Mario Kart at the end.  I had no idea what some of the other games they were referencing were… still cool though.

I liked playing multiplayer in 007 Golden Eye with the Golden Gun.  I should specify ONLY ON N64.  I played that bullshit on my cousin’s Wii… what a load of garbage.  Maybe i’m just too old for the Wii but I thought I was going to puke even when watching someone else play.

A politically-loaded experiment involving a man walking through central Moscow with a replica of an AK-74 assault rifle has hit the Russian blogs. Not a single police officer reportedly stopped or questioned him.

Pavel Tarasov, apparently armed with an openly displayed automatic weapon, strolled through central Moscow, while Vadim Tsibankov took photos of him standing right next to police officers. Vadim describes the experience in a report which is currently top of the Russian blogosphere.

In Soviet Russia, replica AK muzzle sweeps EVERYONE!

From what I can gather, open carry isn’t legal in Russia, so the fact no one batted an eyelash is interesting.  If you ask me, that’s the way it should be though.  The guy was just chilling with his buddies by the look of it, so even if it was real a real firearm, he obviously wasn’t a threat.  I’m so sick of the “only police should carry guns” mentality.  Thankfully even the people in the US that believe that nonsense still have to put up with a growing number part of the population that can’t afford armed security 24/7 so they decide to protect themselves.

Siri becomes useful for something:

Interesting choice on the B+T MP9, I haven’t seen too many of those in real life.  I’m sure that one’s airshit, but that’s besides the point.

I thought the rash of “Siri doing fake cute things” videos would have calmed down by now, but apparently not.  Oh well, looks like these guys had fun making it.

Brotha Ruff Brings it… the action starts at 3:06:

And when I say action I mean, corny church shootout between good and evil using automatic 1911 handguns.   The special effects are so bad it’s hard to watch.  I especially like how “Evil” has on a slick rick style eye patch and wave cap.  You all thought since I’m white I wouldn’t know that huh?  I know Evil’s got his 360 waves spinnin’.

Despite the production of the video, the rapper Brotha Ruff is actually really good.  His flow reminds me of Xzibit.  “Yo Dawg, I heard you like”… never mind I can’t think of a good one.

OH LAWD Will the well of internet gun humor ever run dry?  Thankfully it doesn’t look like it.

Filmed at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, VA:

So disrespectful.  A lot of people just don’t “get it” because they are so far removed from death in war.  For most, I imagine visiting there is just another meaningless stop on the list before they head to the Cheesecake Factory.  I’ve never been to war, so I don’t know what it’s like either… but I definitely can comprehend the gravity of the commitment and sacrifice every soldier makes.
