Some Storm Chasers caught the formation of the devastating Moore tornado. Dayum, nature, you crazy.
The name is based in Latin, and according to the maker's website it means something along the lines of "Escape From Earth". It's a cool, though a bit wordy, way to describe what they describe as the first flying car to be designed for a much broader spectrum of people other than pilots. The fact that it's completely automated is at once awesome and scary. The number of systems that have to work perfectly all the time to ensure safety is astounding. It's not just maintaining altitude. Consider what might happen if during a night flight, the car decided to take you over the ocean. An error in near object detection could result in a collision with another car. What might happen if one collided with a large building or a cell tower?
There are a ton of questions, and not all of them answered in the videos below. I'm not quite as optimistic as these people are, but I'd be thrilled to be wrong. It certainly looks cool.
It's widely speculated that Jason Newstead's bass lines in the ...And Justice For All album were mixed down as a bit of a prank on the (at the time) new guy. Metallica has downplayed this a bit in interviews, and your opinion is likely going to vary. There have been a handful of attempts to remix the tracks, but none of them had really grabbed my attention until this one. This guy did a really good job of giving one of my all time favorite songs a new punch. Have a good weekend, everybody.
I really couldn't tell you why I gave Defiance as much leeway as I did. I speak in regards to both the television series as well as the game. I've invested a fair amount of time in both, and while they had similar beginnings, they both eventually veered different directions.
A fire that was labeled too dangerous to fight took down this railroad bridge in Texas. There is something quite awe-inspiring about 10 million dollars worth of structure collapsing in a mess of burning debris, particularly when you know nobody was hurt, as the fire was contained to the bridge.
Comparisons to Microsoft's image after their botched press conference are inevitable.
He caps off his experience, some parts in French. Re-acclimating to Earth gravity is talked about early, and might be the more interesting bit. Fascinating to watch.
This is way more focus than I can summon on a Monday. Hell, it's probably more focus in 7 minutes than I'll have in the entire week. Miyoko Shida also understands presentation and showmanship, however. Her feat of balance is matched with her artistic presentation. Just watch it already.
A game that most consider to be a classic (I respectfully disagree) has been responsible for more than one fun video. This one, for example, involves a player acting as "Dark Souls Santa Clause", giving out presents to the good players that invade his world, and delving out punishment to the naughty boys and girls who decide to test his patience.
It's goofy. (via Kotaku)
Straight to the point: this was a bummer of a week. What was supposed to be the next big step for us has turned into a giant headache. I have episode 84, which was done the same night as 83 and 82 (below) ready to go. However, I can't upload it because we're currently arguing Fair Use for content in 83. There is no timeline given for when this will be resolved, and until it is, I'm not allowed to upload any more videos with long content.
Can you sense my frustration? I don't mind playing the game, I'm just not understanding their rules. I've probably talked about this way too much.
We're working on it. In the meantime, I'm going to watch some Reel Big Fish and hope the powers that be see things my way.
