Over There No More

Well crap. Another one of my faves bites the dust. You get to the point where you hate watching new shows because you are worried about them getting canned, but you do it anyhow. Then you pay the price when they can’t pay the bills…

NASA – Self-Portrait

NASA – Self-Portrait is a great shot of Astronaut Steve Robinson as he works on fixing Discovery’s heat shields on August 3. The pic shows his view from the reflection of his helmet’s mirrored finish.

Transparent Screen

A great little Flickr stream dealing with Transparent Screen, the art of taking a photograph of your computer’s surroundings, without the computer, then replacing the computer, using the photo taken as a wallpaper, creating an almost artificial looking effect. I’d consider if it there wasn’t just a blue wall behind my screen

Mods: TC:Elite and Damnation

TC:Elite and Damnation are a few mods I’m anxious to check out.

A Mario Sprite History

Interesting little read on the history of the plumber from Nintendo over at NFG Games. No mention of the 3D incarnations of Mario, but it does give a little history, including the reasoning for the mustache, hat, and gloves.

HoustonChronicle.com has an interesting article about an artist who has taken his piercing through the bridge of his nose and converted it to hold his eyeglasses.

Wired News: Real World Doesn’t Use a Joystick

Real World Doesn’t Use a Joystick really hits home if you’ve ever seen blocks after playing Tetris or had to pull your foot off the gas after a few games of Burnout 3. It’s good to know I’m not the only one who has had dreams about the latest game to occupy their freetime.

Google Maps

Google just continues to amaze me. Everytime you think the competition has a leg up on them, they come out of nowhere and just demolish them with something that’s not only better, but simpler at the same time.

Their latest Wow? Google Maps
