I updated my Flickr with some new pictures from hiking today, check them out here if you're interested!


Wow I haven't posted anything in a while but I felt like this deserves to be shared. Drew Carey is hosting a new improv show, and based on the cast I'm guessing it'll be a lot like Whose Line, which is the most exciting thing ever cause I'm pretty sure I've seen all the Whose Line youtube videos in existence already. Anyways, you should watch!

Just watch it. Actually, watch it multiple times... over and over again... just for Neil Patrick Harris making that sound.
Don't ask me about the formatting on this cause I have no clue what it's doing. This is the first time I've ever uploaded a video on here and I only did it because I couldn't find it online so I just speed edited this clip out in WMM.

Edit:

I shortened it to just his moan and uploaded it to Youtube.

So this is kind of old news now, but they announced a release date and it's soon! April 12th! *excitement*

Also, this picture has so much win in it. For those who don't know this is a parody on Battlefield Bad Company 2. It also had an expansion called Vietnam.

Okay, so I actually know what it is, but still... look at that thing!  It's clearly a PS3 with a built in wind turbine and I don't see how this serves the practical purpose Logitec claims it does!

Here is a list of the most looked up words on the online webster's dictionary. It's pretty interesting to see which most commonly used words are least understood.

Oh and here's a mildly related comic:


ABED!

If I'm not mistaken the music is inspired by the candy mountain cave song.

It doesn't get any more innovative than this.

There's there's this website, http://helpnathanbuyfirefly.com/, which was created for the purpose of raising money to create more Firefly. This might seem a little out of the blue but it's actually because a statement from Nathan Fillion himself last week. He said, "If I got $300 million from the California Lottery, the first thing I would do is buy the rights to Firefly, make it on my own, and distribute it on the Internet." He was probably thinking hypothetically but now a lot of people want to make it happen, minus the lottery, and a couple other people connected with Firefly have expressed interest too. Right now the website and facebook group are working on taking pledges to see if this is actually possible.
I have my doubts about this. It seems like a bit of a pipe dream, but you never know. Maybe someday this could happen and I'll gladly support it if it does.

I couldn't find any way to embed the video so you'll have to follow the link. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know I took some new pictures from an eagle-watching adventure with my family this morning in Essex/Gillette Castle, which you can find here on my Flickr. The eagles were really far away and hard to see, so I took a bunch of pictures of seagulls & stuff insteaddd.


That was lovely

Dear nonexistent valentine,


























These are from last year but they still apply.  You can see all 3 right here and download them in high quality for use as wallpapers if you're so inclined.  I never have been.











From the Portal 2 blog:
In just seventy-two short hours it'll be Valentine's Day, and that means pressure: finding a girlfriend or boyfriend, for one, then figuring out the perfect romantic gift to give them.
We're going to help you with the "perfect romantic gift" part Monday, but first things first: let's bag you a Valentine!
How? With Aperture Science "Classy Romance"-brand Valentine's Day cards. They express a wide variety of today's most popular emotions. And you can print them, on an even wider variety of flat surfaces, from paper to sexy edible paper. Then you can mail them, using a preposterously wide variety of envelopes and stamps.
"Mail?" you're thinking. "Do people still use that?" No. That's why it's so romantic: because if your entire plan to win over your Valentine's heart is sending them an email, why not just text them? In fact, why not just think it, alone, in a restaurant, on Valentine's Day? Maybe your waiter will feel sorry for you and mail you one of these dynamite Valentines.
You can see all the them on this conveniently printable pdf.


In Sci-fi we talked about verisimilitude and once Obrien gave us a definition I thought "Oh man, he's talking about technobabble!" Then I couldn't stop thinking about this video.
Ron Moore doesn't like it much cause he's a writer and he thinks Star Trek over does it to the point that sometimes it becomes deus ex machina which isn't so great for the story.

So I've been messing around with Minecraft a lot lately, and I came across these custom game map types called "Escapecraft". Essentially, these custom games are a bunch of obstacles set up by their builders (in a survivor-esc mode) which you can download. In order to progress through to the end, you need a great deal of knowledge in Minecraft (i.e. how to build things, what things can actually be set on fire, etc...)


Bananapielord on Youtube made a great segment on one of the versions, which looks amazing to play and really well laid out. Check out both parts below.





This is the first thing BriTANick's done in forever and it was fantastic.

My dad showed this comic to me at least a year ago, and for some reason I thought of it this morning.
If you don't get it, say the punchline out loud.
If you still don't get it then you're a little pathetic.
If after realizing your patheticness you still want to know why it's funny then just ask in the comments.

It's a musical about calculus.  Might go see it in a couple months during April vacation.  I actually heard about this from my math teacher Mr. Mahoney a few weeks ago but I'm getting around to blogging it now.
You can listen to some of the songs and read lyrics here.  They're all calculus parodies of other popular songs.


It seems a little shaky at times but that's probably because the distances don't match with the exact rhythm of the song.  It's still amazing.
Parker linked me to this. You can read his blog here.

Or I guess if you don't live on the east coast, this isn't what it looks like outside. Check out my Flickr for more photos.



I don't know how I missed this.



I've posted about these guys before, they keep getting more impressive.

Wow, things here at The Lunch Box have been pretty slow lately. Anyways, I'm just getting the word out that I decided to make a Flickr at some point and I've been uploading a few pictures, at this point most of them are of the snow & stuff outside. I don't really know how to use it and I don't know anyone who does, so I'm not really expecting much action there. But when I become a famous photographer it'll be nice to have a record of my earlier work.
