If your favorite sushi place isn’t already expensive enough:

Tell them you want special shapes like this, and i’m sure they would be willing to accommodate you for a hefty fee.

Made by Japanese design student Mayuka Nakamura for her graduation project.    *Sigh* fine arts…

Her website poorly translates to English, but if I could read Japanese I’m sure i’d find some deep “purpose” statement.  I’m sure those transcend cultures in the art world.

Thoughts?

An inside story from Aljazeera:

The video is 25 minutes long, and definitely worth watching.

Say what you will about Aljazeera, but they allow a decent discussion from what i’ve seen.   The same story on FOX or CNN would have been “ZOMG guns are bad! BAN THEM ALL!” followed by interrupting and loud-talking.

Thoughts?

AFT is always good for a few laughs:

The only complaint I have about Action Figure Therapy is that after watching tons of them, the punchlines and direction they take in all the videos is very predictable.

Made by some kids at the University of Nottingham in the UK:

Pretty risky move in the UK.  Observe at 1:47 when the crazed smoke ring gunman lets loose.

I purpose filling the box with a mixture of concentrated cigarette smoke and farts, and essentially firing cancer and stink directly at enemy lungs.

The University of Nottingham is in the hometown of Heckler & Koch.  If HK made a smoke ring vortex cannon they would only sell it to law enforcement for copious amounts of money, and scoff at the civilian market worldwide.

You can check out this bigger, more grown up version of the Cannon with a guy that’s just a bit more excited than he should be.

Thoughts?

Oh wow… this guy is good:

If I were him I would have ended my appearance with a simple “Checkmate.  Thank you for having me.”

The trailer reminded me a lot of a less exciting version of Dead Island.  Despite the bland trailer I actually have high hopes for this game.  TellTaleGames appears to have produced two Sam&Max games, in addition one Monkey Island game.  I really liked both those franchises when I was a kid.  I was bracing to see that they produced Day Of The Tentacle (Best cartoon game EVER), but sadly they did not.

Anyone rushing out to buy this game?

You Can pre-order it on their website for $22.49.
