Cirque Du Soleil Meets Quad Copters

Cirque Du Soleil Meets Quad Copters – Cirque is truly fantastic. (Fantastique?) I’ve happened to pick up a show in Denver, Orlando and Las Vegas(? I lose track, LA? No idea.) My favorite memory of the show was heading to the door with my tickets in my hands and having a clown take the tickets and walk us all the way down to the stage. He then proceed onto the circular stage, and then to the center of said stage. Where he then placed the tickets in the middle of the stage… on the ground. And he then gestured that these would be our seats for the evening. So I headed onto the stage and sat down. It was a good evening out.

And now that they are adding choreographed quad copters it is only going to get fantasticker. Or something. Here’s the making of video for your enjoyment.

Modern Console Gaming Destiny

Modern Console Gaming Destiny – if Destiny is the future of not only gaming, but entertainment in general, what can we expect? If you are playing a single player game… the first thing you can expect is that other guys will be shooting at your bad guys. Wha? Yeah, I accidentally teamed up with a couple players last night, and we pushed through the bad guys together. Normally the levels are built to handle around three players a piece. Right? So each level, the complexity and difficult of the levels are ranked for a cooperative of three people to play them together. But if you are running solo, you will just naturally find that there will be others on your board at the same time. Which changes your game play immediately. I never said hello. I never talked to them. And yet we both started running through the same valley to hit the target together.

Over Under Toilet Paper Discussion

Over Under Toilet Paper Discussion – And yes. I also am an avowed overrer too. And I too am going to begin folding my toilet paper extras in a v-shaped fashion just to give that high class, “just been cleaned” feeling. To all you underrers… the facts are all here for you to make the right choice. All you need to do is admit you need help, and we overrers will be here to help in a heartbeat.

John Oliver My New Favorite Thing Ever

John Oliver My New Favorite Thing Ever – This is will be difficult to drive home correctly. With the right intensity and perspective. How to amp this at the right level. I need a volume 11 for this post. WHICH I GUESS I COULD DO IN ALL CAPS. But I don’t know if even that will drive the correct insight to what I am wanting to say here. So, with that in mind. I’m going to say it slowly. And precisely. John Oliver. Is my new. Favorite thing. Ever.

Must Have Steam Punk Internet Speedometer

So there is a Kickstarter from heaven happening right now. A Steampunk download speed gauge from heaven. Support this Kickstarter and assemble your own. He’ll even build it for you depending on your support level. But it actually looks like a fun kit to build to me.

Craigslist Missed Connections Beauty

Craig’s List is a pretty lame place to hang out. Or a really really terrible place even. But even on the greatest of days it doesn’t usually go well. And I know – I just sold my Xbox 360 out on Craig’s and dang it if I wasn’t worth it by a long shot. Sure, I got cash on the barrel head… but flip an egg is it a terribly weird place where the basest of humanity’s detritus hangs out. But occasionally Craig’s has a gem or two… or maybe just a gem. Anyway this lovely little post may single handedly make all of Craig’s chaos make sense… or if not make sense, make it worth it anyway. This was posted on Wednesday in the missed connections section of Craig’s List.
