I Love The Internet (pt. 20)

– It’s weird; when I first saw this steampunk Gameboy, I thought it was one of the coolest things I’d ever seen, but I have to say my enthusiasm has seriously cooled after a few days. Only concerning function and necessity, though – it’s still pretty sweet to look at. Probably works better than a PSP Go too.

– One of the interesting aspects of life is seeing how different people react to similar situations. For example, some people might look at the pictures from this list of the 19 sickest roads in the world and see nothing but danger – I see nothing but fun.

– It’s been 15 years(!) since Salma Hayek first popped into the national consciousness in 1995’s “Desperado”, and ever since then she’s proudly held up her busty banner as Mexico’s most famous international actress and a perennial Top 5 Chests in Hollywood contender. But nobody can stay at the top forever, and the time may be approaching that another must rise to the forefront. Might I humbly suggest a simple competition between the insanely hot Ninel Conde and the equally gorgeous Denisse Padilla? Here’s what I’m thinking: some contests (the pair face off in acting, tequila shots and a swimsuit competition), cheap tickets, and all the proceeds go to help Haiti recover. Sound good?

– When it comes to men and jewelry, at the end of the day there’s pretty much two camps – either you wear it or you don’t. While I’m firmly in the latter camp, I have to admit I would make an exception for this pretty sweet gear ring. Yes, it’s arguably pointless, but still – look at it!

– Soccer needs a bigger presence in the US, dammit, if for no other reason then the fact that the odds of a female Milwaukee Brewers fan  showing off the goods after a win are painfully low, as opposed to the actions of one Leah Carpenter Spencer after a Mexico game. Actually, considering how a lot of Milwaukee fans look, maybe that’s a good thing…

– The concept of the planet of Snaiad alone is amazing; summed up, it’s basically an open-source world creation project, where people can submit animal/vegetable/mineral designs in hopes that they’re ratified and included in the construction and evolution of a virtual futuristic colonization effort by descendants of modern-day Earthlings.

– As a matter of fact, I do.

– I honestly don’t know what amuses me most about this picture: the blase manner of the one girl as she casually throws up the one-finger salute, the semi-shocked looks on the faces of the girls behind her, the smug “Like you wouldn’t jump into bed with me if I snapped my fingers” look on Robert Pattinson’s face, or the fact that according to the inlet just to the left of the picture you can already get playing cards, cups, iPhone covers and whatnot with the pic on them.

– You know, when both Christina Hendricks and her husband say they’re not super-thrilled by all the attention Hendricks’ body receives in the press, I sympathize. I certainly can’t emphasize, seeing as how I currently don’t have the pleasure of smashing a woman of similarly voluptuous beauty on a nightly basis, but I can understand how it can be tiring/discouraging for both a woman to be constantly fielding questions about her tits and for her husband to constantly be dealing with the same. Here’s the thing, though – is it the worst thing in the world for people to essentially be asking you, “So how does it feel to be one of the hottest women in television today?”

– Let me see if I fully understand; super-director Christopher Nolan is not only finally getting started on the third “Dark Knight” movie, he’s also going to be the main man on a reboot of the “Superman” franchise? Hey, as long as it’s not Joel Schumacher again…more on this later.

– Time for a sad truth – there is a significant credibility gap between the average American’s perceptions of his/her worldwide statistical status concerning numerous metrics, and the reality. Take the Internet, for example. It was more or less created by the U.S. military; it’s a little known fact that it’s essentially run by the US. And yet, despite all that, the U.S. is only 18th worldwide in broadband speed, lagging behind tech powerhouses like Belgium and Romania. So, of course, Google has decided to come to the rescue with Google Fiber for Communities, which is basically it’s own high-speed broadband network. They’re gonna be testing in communities soon; hopefully they’ve got my number…oh, and if you want to see just how fast your connection is, try this handy little site.

– Normally, when a celebrity goes to sex rehab, my opinion is something along the lines of, “Gimme a fucking break.” In Tiger Woods case, however, I felt the need to make an exception, because if you have a gorgeous former swimsuit model at home and still feel the need to constantly sleep around, you’ve got serious problems. But who the hell really knows what the whole deal is with that anyways? I dunno, maybe Tiger’s heavily into anal play, and Elin wasn’t down for that.

– I don’t know why I’m torturing myself with these pics, but Weta Workshop – the folks behind the art in the Lord of the Rings series – have recently released a set of concept art pictures from the on-again, off-again live-action movie production of all-time Top 5 anime classic “Neon Genesis Evangelion“, one of the most mind-bending, thought-provoking cartoons of all time.

– Considering the remarkably high number of scantily-clad women in the history of science fiction, I think more sci-fi burlesque shows are in order. Many more.

– What. The. FUCK. Or, perhaps more accurately, QI’yaH! (Yes, that’s Klingon; trust me, it’ll make sense when you click on the link.

– The Greener Gadgets Conference, one of the coolest eco-conferences around (yes, there is such a thing as a cool eco-conference) is coming up on February 25 in NYC, and as usual the nifty concepts and designs have started to flood in. One of the most intriguing? The Turbine Light, which uses the wind created by oncoming cars to power highway lights. Brilliant! (Jeez…do me a favor and pretend I never made that joke.)

– I know this is a little dated, but still bear with me. This is 2008 Maxim Hometown Hotties finalist and former MMA ring girl Arianny Celeste; as you can tell, she is a hottie of the highest caliber. So hot, in fact, that when Dakota Ridge High School senior Conner Cordova saw her at an MMA match, he fell for her. Hard. But while most teenage boys would just snap a couple of mental pics for the spank bank and leave it at that, Conner went a little further, posting a number of hilarious Youtube videos where he begged Celeste to go to prom with him (money quote: “I think shame is overrated.”) Amazingly, the idea picked up steam, as Conner even got UFC fighters (including Frank Trigg, Miguel Torres and trainer Eddie Bravo, and separate “advice” vids from GSP and Wanderlei Silva) to appear in his videos, and after a couple of weeks, the gorgeous Celeste agreed…on the condition that he could find a date for her friend. Yeah, I’m sure that’s gonna be tough. So all’s well that ends well, right? Except Whitey Hudson at squabbles.com had a particularly salient point that struck me:

“Just saying here, but if it was you, and you were 17 again, and you could go to the prom with a girl who wore a little too much makeup but was guaranteed to give you some sugar, or the prom-queen-top-cheerleader-math-prize-winner who’s saving it for Mr Swiss Accounts, how would you roll?”

I think I speak for all guys, when I say, WHO CARES?!?!

– Holy hell, this looks good. While Asian audiences are long used to very violent, adult films in animated form, Western audiences usually equate “cartoon” with “child”. Not exactly easy to do with gorgeously-crafted zombie flick “A.D.” Fortunately, while most studios shy away from anything that doesn’t look like a record-breaker, the concept (which only has this trailer made so far) has already gained a fan in producer Bernie Goldman (300, Land of the Dead). Having said all that, somebody please, please, please make this movie:
