Happy Birthday Chuck

Maybe a day late in Oz, but it is still the 10th of March in America and Chuck Norris turns 70, where does the time go? He doesn’t look a day over 50.

I’ve heard that he lives in a round house, and that’s a fact!


When’s the baby due?

There’s a cool T-Shirt over on teefury today, you’ve got 24 hours to get it


This site does not accept flooz

There is an article over on network world covering how it has been 10 years since the top of the dot-com bubble when the NASDAQ reached 5,133. This was an interesting time for me as I was working in the states with a big tech company, boring chip design. However you would get calls from friends or friends of friends suggesting you might want to invest in this new startup that is going IPO, wink wink. It was all crazy,,, flooz, well at least Whoopi Goldberg career survived that one. Here are a few reasons why they thought the bubble could go on forever :

  • It’s okay to sell products for less than what they cost you, because that will bring you lots of customers.
  • Internet-based companies are immune to economic cycles.
  • Internet companies can’t spend too much on advertising.
  • Internet companies that carry no inventory are infinitely profitable.

Surely we can’t be that stupid to do it all over again….


Gift Heckler

This is another favourite Gift Grub.  Comedian Neil Delamare was guest hosting the Ian Dempsey Breakfast show and a professional heckler rings in to make Neil’s day.

“Ya fuzzy haired culchie ya!”


Bumblechii & Predator Girl, one and the same

It turns out that the dad of Voltron girl, Belldandy, has done other suits for his daughter as well. I was surprised (or maybe I shouldn’t have given the quality of the Voltron suit) that there was also a bumblebee suit, which they call bumblechii and even a mini predator. I not too sure what to make of that one, not the type of entertainment for a small girl – “Get to da Choppa!” Check out the gallery over at The GRIM AdventuREZ of Belldandy.


Space Drink

I haven’t done much CG work for a while, I do keep my eye of some of the work over at CGSociety, this one popped up as a popular image, I think it is pretty cool, check it out at here.


MacDonald’s – Why so serious?

I forget where I found this image, but it is pretty cool.


Ah Fridays…


Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide!

It has been a while since this cause to ban Dihydrogen Monoxide has been taken up, but we can never rest from this horror, here are some of the fact that you must know, taken from the Coalition to ban dihydrogen monoxide website.  Check it out, get educated, tell your family, tell your friends!

The Invisible Killer

Dihydrogen monoxide is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and kills uncounted thousands of people every year. Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there. Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting and body electrolyte imbalance. For those who have become dependent, DHMO withdrawal means certain death.

Dihydrogen monoxide:

  • is also known as hydroxyl acid, and is the major component of acid rain.
  • contributes to the “greenhouse effect.”
  • may cause severe burns.
  • contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
  • accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
  • may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
  • has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.

Contamination Is Reaching Epidemic Proportions!

Quantities of dihydrogen monoxide have been found in almost every stream, lake, and reservoir in America today. But the pollution is global, and the contaminant has even been found in Antarctic ice. DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage in the midwest, and recently California.

Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used:

  • as an industrial solvent and coolant.
  • in nuclear power plants.
  • in the production of styrofoam.
  • as a fire retardant.
  • in many forms of cruel animal research.
  • in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.
  • as an additive in certain “junk-foods” and other food products.

Companies dump waste DHMO into rivers and the ocean, and nothing can be done to stop them because this practice is still legal. The impact on wildlife is extreme, and we cannot afford to ignore it any longer!

The Horror Must Be Stopped!

The American government has refused to ban the production, distribution, or use of this damaging chemical due to its “importance to the economic health of this nation.” In fact, the navy and other military organizations are conducting experiments with DHMO, and designing multi-billion dollar devices to control and utilize it during warfare situations. Hundreds of military research facilities receive tons of it through a highly sophisticated underground distribution network. Many store large quantities for later use.

It’s Not Too Late!

Act NOW to prevent further contamination. Find out more about this dangerous chemical. What you don’t know can hurt you and others throughout the world.


Voltron Girl

Why couldn’t fancy dress be as cool as this when I was a kid. All I got was the crappy storm trooper masks. Found this over on buzzfeed as 2C2BG, too cute to be geeky.


It turns out this was done by grimm_hammer for his daughter back in 2008.

It also comes with helmet.
