The Next Generation of Rims....

100 bucks says this is the next big thing in rims. Pretty cool! Check out this vid!

The Lenova Tapes

"Earlier this year some very interesting tapes were handed to me from a long standing acquaintance of mine. The tapes originated at a Lenovo (the Chinese company that recently took over IBM Thinkpad) research facility and appear to feature test footage. When my acquaintance watched the tapes back, he found some footage that he just had to get it out into the public domain. I’ve watched the material myself and I’ve got to agree with him – it’s pretty amazing stuff. "

I'm not sure if these tapes are complete bullshit or technology really is progressing that fast these days. Watch all 3 videos and comment with your thoughts. Something inside my head is saying ' bullshit!' but I can't be sure. If it is real, all I can say is ' Holy bloody fuck me in the goat ass' . You be the judge....

**UPDATE** Only 1 video is up right now due to bandwidth issues.

German Garbage Men circa 1976

I watched this 3 times and was amused each time. It might be the guitar riff. Don't ask me what the hell they're saying cause I have no idea. Anyone know German who can translate? Enjoy! "Dundanhaus, Dundanhaus"


301- How to Fail Rally School

"Force Dynamics was born in 2001, when the founders saw that the missing link in racing simulation had changed: instead of computers struggling to handle the computations necessary to replicate a car accurately, drivers were struggling to drive cars without being able to feel them. Whether we're building full motion simulators, display systems, cockpits, or controls, our paramount concerns are performance, accuracy, and safety. We'll choose another tenth of a second of response time over a popular seat brand, and we'll choose reliability, accuracy and safety over aesthetics. We will never mold little plastic wings to tack on our simulators, or reduce performance by running wiring through heavy, braided metal tubing, just because it looks "like a real car." Our first and continual focus is to replicate a driver's experience to the absolute limit of technology."

The 301 is one of their current projects that is close to production. I've seen these before but this one actually looks pretty cool! Here's a video showing you what it can do...

Talladega Nights

A new Will Ferrell comedy is wrapping up! Its due out 08/04/06! Here's the skinny....

"Rebel NASCAR driver Ricky Bobby (Ferrell) faces stiff competition in the form of his new teammate, Jean Girard (Baron Cohen). Bobby partners with his buddy Cal (Reilly), to form Thunder and Lightning, the most feared duo in the game."

Apparently producers pitched the movie with this .... "Six words: Will Ferrell as a Nascar driver."

A trailer is available at Sony Pictures.

Silly Walk Generator

My friend and soon to be 'Compelling & Rich' Admin, Beef Wellington, found this hilarious 'Silly Walk Generator'. Thanks! Obviously, it is based on the Monty Python skit 'The Ministry of Silly Walks'. It's a little tricky but read the tutorial and you should be able to make something somewhat realistic. My first attempt looked like a crack head having a bloody seizure. Good Shit!!

Bonus: Here's a page I found with info and a few videos of the silly walkers. Enjoy!

World War II in Color

"For so many years, historians and casual observers alike have observed the events of World War II through faded black and white images. What most people do not know is the fact that quite a large portion of the WWII was shot using color film! However, it wasn't until recently that a lot of the photographs and motion picture footage was de-classified by the U.S. Government."

Really slick! Amazing photos!! Here are a few to give you an idea.

"DUKW comes ashore at Anzio"

"American Soldier with flags"

"American M24 Chaffee"

"Have you ever had a dream Kermie that you were so sure was real? "

This is a short CGI made by 3 students as an intro to a final project. Its kind of silly... but well done. Beaker is a bad guy and Ralph is Morpheus! The end is funny...

Chrome Hounds

I have never been a fan of the XBox or the NextBox, I mean XBox 360, as I have always been happy with Sony. This game however may sway me slightly towards Microsoft. Tactical squad based mech shooter. Sega has put up the games official website that showcases a sweet movie. Just watch it and you'll see what I mean. I present... CHROME HOUNDS! Enjoy!
