TheForce.Net reports that the United States Postal Service will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars by painting a bunch of mailboxes like R2-D2. Pretty cool…
Eric Poulton’s Steampunk Star Wars illustrations are awesome. Keep checking the link as he adds more…
The MetaFilter thread “Here comes the bench!” is chock full of awesome hockey fight video links. I’m particularly impressed with the second goalie fight link… 😉
Check out a young Paula Abdul in this extremely cheesy YouTube video from a 1978 episode of Junior High School.
Stringfever is an amazing British string quartet. I can’t do them justice, just go and check out the YouTube videos Bolero and History of Music.
I finally saw the Borat movie over the weekend. Although there were some really hilarious moments, I was slightly disappointed overall. I think it’s mostly because it’s hard to sustain that kind of humor over an entire movie, even if it doesn’t even clock in at an hour and a half. I think bite-sized chunks from Da Ali G Show still rock… 🙂
Anyway, check out Angry Alien’s latest production, Borat In 30 Seconds (reenacted by bunnies).
Weather.com’s beta Interactive Weather Map does a pretty nice job superimposing weather information on Microsoft Virtual Earth maps. The imagery is very nice, but overall I’m not sure whether I like this better than Weather Bonk, which is a Google Maps mash-up. What do you think?
As Download Squad points out, there are a lot of web sites that allow you to see TV program listings online. However, Couchville is slightly nicer than most in that it allows you to pan through the listings much easier a la Google Maps.
