Instead of the horrifying pictures of vivisected animals, PETA has taken a new tact… SEX. Check out their new banned advertisement deemed too sexy for the Super Bowl.

‘Veggie Love’: PETA’s Banned Super Bowl Ad


The following Inaugural photo is a mixture of 220 photos taken from the same location. By doing this, you can scan and zoom in on people to such a degree you can see the tears in their eyes and the smiles on their faces. Really cool tech.

Not that stuff you pull from between your toes, but what your toes will be doing to the latest release by David Byrne. Well, to be more specific, by BPA (Brighton Port Authority) which is the new face of Norman Cook (A.K.A. Fatboy Slim) featuring David Byrne. The video is a take on an old 1965 style swingers vid with some very clever censor bars used to make the video funny, and a form of art unto itself.

The video was directed by Keith Schofield.  Check out the interview for more info on the making of this happy video.

So, enough blabber, take a look at this avant garde time machine video on David Byrne’s Website.

Enjoy and Toe Jam all day.


Google Oil

google earth oilA member of the Google Earth Community, called ‘giasen’, has posted some really cool 3D charts showing World Oil Consumption in Google Earth.

His charts show very nice looking exploding 3D graphs in the shape of each country with different colors. The data comes from the CIA World Factbook. Here are the two version he produced:

So get some google on!


Thomas Friedman, author of “The world is Flat” and other titles gives a very insightful look at the Democratic candidates:

Traveling the country these past five months while writing a book, I’ve had my own opportunity to take the pulse, far from the campaign crowds. My own totally unscientific polling has left me feeling that if there is one overwhelming hunger in our country today it’s this: People want to do nation-building. They really do. But they want to do nation-building in America.

They are not only tired of nation-building in Iraq and in Afghanistan, with so little to show for it. They sense something deeper — that we’re just not that strong anymore. We’re borrowing money to shore up our banks from city-states called Dubai and Singapore. Our generals regularly tell us that Iran is subverting our efforts in Iraq, but they do nothing about it because we have no leverage — as long as our forces are pinned down in Baghdad and our economy is pinned to Middle East oil.

DisconnectedHow long could you go without COMPUTERS?

This is the question being asked by three college students at Carleton College in Northfield MN, who recorded the results in “Disconnected“, which was created for a documentary film class.

This has gotten a lot of attention in Minnesota, but it is quite fascinating and I thought more people may want a looksy at the trailer. You can read about the history of the project right here.

It is also being shown at the Twin cities International film festival.

Watch the Trailer or Visit the Official Site.

Ads of the 30's

Doctor smokingIt’s amazing how society has changed in the last 70 odd years, and yet the core techniques of how we advertise remain the same.

Doesn’t this remind you of a certain chewing gum ad campaign?

Get your1930’s advertisements on and learn to love lard, cigarettes and tape worms. YUM!


Do you miss the classic ASCII games like Moria? How about you try the prequel? Well there is a new kid on the block that is using the same ASCII game play but with Sim City like complexity: Slaves to Armok: Dwarf Fortress by developer Tarn Adams.

Dwarf Fortress

You control a band of Dwarves starting up a new city: burrowing into the rocks and setting the foundation for a new kingdom. It’s kind of like Sim City, so it’s a bit like BUILDING Moria! You can never win, at some point you will be wiped out by disasters or goblins, but the game’s motto is “Losing is fun!” The point is to see how long you can hold out.

I’ve just started and don’t quite have the hang of it yet, but I think it’s going to trap me. It’s got an immensely rich set of materials and skills you need to use to set up your fortress, succeed in trade, farming, mining, and attracting new immigrants…

I like this guys description of the game being built in an alternate world, and of course the wiki for beginners will be important.
