…and the chaos continues!

Happy New Year you silly reader, you! My gift to everyone this year is my new website design (YAY!!!) – gander at it’s 16-Bit’d awesomeness as every plasma cell of fire burns itself into the retinas of your eyes while you watch a glorious 16-Bit D.C. sunset!!!1

Unfortunately, the blog’s received no love until now 🙁 . I’ve been gone for a long time, and I’ve been quite busy. Work, play, the holidays, expansions of consciousness, Mario Kart Wii, Forza 3; they’ve all taken up quite a good portion of the last three months of the latest 365-day cycle that we all willingly, but always questionably, partake in. So in celebration I’ve prepared a small list of treats for you – a late stocking-stuffer if you will – full of cool things I’ve been finding on the internets!

GamOvr – Pix for game geeks
Showcase of video game-inspired images hand-picked by the site moderators, I guess. They also provide source links, which are sometimes to decent blog sites. Definitely inspiring to say the least. I’ve found some really cool stuff here… like this:

Eeny – meeny – miny – mo…

Video Gaming Builds Cognitive Skills via Scientific Blogging
Imagine that! Good, now that we’ve cleared up any arguments about video games being bad for people, let’s get the case rolling to where video games are proven not to be the cause of stupid idiots doing stupid things like murdering stupid people or stealing stupid stuff. “I DID IT BECAUSE GTA-IV TOLD ME TO!” Shut the fuck up and stop blaming everything else for your own mistakes. STUPID!

People talking about Super Metroid Redux
Even if it’s sarcastically criticized, it’s really something else to see your work being spread around on forums or other places. A discussion I definitely didn’t expect to see outside of here or YouTube.

Galactic Center of Milky Way Rises over Texas Star Party from William Castleman via Vimeo
Had to share this one. Most-intrigued by the concept of a “galaxyrise” mentioned in Carl Sagan’s Cosmos series, I scoured the series-of-tubes in search of ways to express such a term. I am now tempted to find a digital picture frame so that I can take each frame of this video, make it an image, and have it sit on my desk and animate itself all day. DAMN that would be awesome. What an awesome idea.

Stop resisting – watch it fullscreen!!

Is A New Spirituality Inspired by UFOs? via UFO Digest
This isn’t so much about UFOs as it is the concept of something bigger going on. I want to put emphasis on the part about other countries closing down their investigations unit – most likely because they’re smart enough to know that no UFO poses any real threat. If you eliminate the fear from the people you govern, they’ll come out of the corner, stop peeing themselves, and start looking at what’s really happening. People will have to see eventually that the world, indeed, does not revolve around them, that other people experience the same visions and feelings of reality that they do, and that life is too short and more important than being upset about… THINGS. Probably the best article I’ve read all year. Enjoy that one!

Alright, that’s all I’ve got for today. This whole website thing is about to get flipped upside down. Expect some serious articles to be pumped out here in the coming weeks. I’ve got a lot to say, and dammit you’re gonna listen! PEACE, BITCHEZ!
