FlickrBlog posts about a bunch of new flickr features, including “New Navigation, New Search, New and Improved Organizr, and the Person Menu.” As the post points out, you might be best off just jumping in and exploring…
Leave it to Jon Stewart of The Daily Show to point out that W’s endorsement of Michael Hayden is almost word for word the same as that for Porter Goss back in 2004: “He’s the right man to lead the CIA at this critical moment in our nation’s history.” (embedded video) Wait a second…
a Guantanamo Bay mod of the classic 3D first-person game Castle Wolfenstein. In WolfenGitmo, your hands are bound and you have no weapons, so you merely run around and get mauled by dogs and beaten up by soldiers.
The mod was created by Evan Harper as “part of an assignment for Design Technology’s Art Of Hacking class.” No downloads are available yet, although a playable version is on display at the Parsons CDT show in New York.
In case you missed it, last Saturday’s Saturday Night Live opened with a great skit starring Al Gore “addressing the nation as if he was the President of the United States.” He got in a bunch of great jabs at the current administration while poking a bit of fun at himself. Crooks and Liars offers video links (QuickTime and Windows Media Video) as well as an unofficial transcript. Very funny…

Last year I lamented about the impending release of Rocky Balboa (AKA Rocky 6), an obviously deluded effort by Sylvester Stallone to revisit the past. I was less than optimistic about this release then, and the teaser video clip made available at Rocky Balboa Blog (wow, the movie has its own blog!) gives away absolutely nothing, so I don’t even know why they bothered. Take a look if you’re interested, but don’t expect much. I suppose that will probably prove to be good advice about the movie as well… ;-p
