zOMG Turtles!

I love the Ninja Turtles. If there’s one thing that will put an end to the pirates VS ninjas arguments, it’s them. I’ve loved them since I was a kid (And being the hyperactive little thing I was you can only imagine what I would do after watching a Turtles cartoon). From figures to comics to movies, I had a butt load of the green related stuff (Most of which I’ve lost, which makes me want to cry).

Now, most of the new Ninja Turtles productions have been rather crappy. From the live action TV show they made where they tried a lady turtle, to the new cartoon (Who’s visual style I REALLY like, but still sucks because it’s pretty badly written and uninteresting). So when I first heard they were making a new turtles movie, well I was a little worried. More excited than worried though. Extremely excited. Last night it premiered in theatres. Last night the Turtles rocked our socks. zOMG I love the Turtles….Still.

The visual style of the film is just fantastic. It’s really reminiscent of the comics, and it’s incredibly well animated (And I always find myself picking apart CG films from a visual standpoint). The voice acting is top notch, even going so far as to have the actor who played Leonardo in the original film back as Leo again (Even if Sarah Michelle Gellar did the voice for April…Ok she did a good job I’ll admit it). And though I thought that the story would be so dumb we would love it only because the Heroes in a Half Shell were in it, even the story kicked ass. It even has continuity with the other three films.
Go see it. Go see it ASAP. And take me with you!

Funny things people actually said in court, word for word. Hilarious!

NiGHTS Wii Confirmed!

The highly rumoured NiGHTS has been confirmed by both Nintendo and SEGA. They will be releasing, not NiGHTS into dreams, but an official sequel to the game developed for the Wii. Fans of the now original NiGHTS game shouldn’t dismiss the probability of seeing our jester attired friend from appearing in the Virtual Console library soon.

Simple Math Game That Grows Very Hard Very Quickly. Really Tests You.

The aim of the game is the make the graph planar by moving about the vertices, i.e. no edges intersect. There is an algorithm in graph theory that will construct a planar equivalent except the lines that join the vertices don’t have to be straight. Here the lines are forced to be straight which adds to the complexity. Click read more and check it out!

Everyone loves the Super Mario theme. But did you know there’s lyrics! Aparently it’s called Go Go Mario. It’s sung in Japanses (The video is from the Big Band Mario and Zelda performance from Japan).

Go Go Mario

Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running
Go save Princess Peach! Go!
Today, full of energy, Mario runs
Today, full of energy, jumping!
Today, full of energy, searching for coins
Today, keep going, Mario!

Get a mushroom – it’s Super Mario!
Get a flower – it’s Fire Mario!

Goomba! Troopa! Buzzy Beetle! Beat them all!
Mario is always full of energy and strong!

[Spoken] The only one who can reverse the spell that has captured the Mushroom People is Princess Peach. But Princess Peach is hidden underground, in a far-off castle. Ah, the days of peace… if we could once more return to those days… to save Princess Peach and bring peace back to the Mushroom Kingdom, that is why Mario is on his journey today.

Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running
Go and beat the Koopa tribe, go!
Today, full of energy, Mario runs
Today, full of energy, jumping!
Today, full of energy, searching for coins
Today, keep going, Mario!

Get a star – become invincible!
Quickly, go save Princess Peach!

Lakitu! Blooper! Cheep Cheep! Beat them all!
Mario is always full of energy and strong!

Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running
He’s made it to the castle and gets fireworks!
Lightly sidestepping the Hammer Bros.
Show the last of your power, Mario!
It’s been a long journey but it’s nearly at an end
You’ve done it, you’ve done it! You’ve defeated Bowser!

Princess Peach says “Thank you”
Mario’s got a great big heart!

Mario’s adventure is over for now, but
Mario’s dream lives forever…

Pandora

“Can you help me discover more music that I’ll like?

Those questions often evolved into great conversations. Each friend told us their favourite artists and songs, explored the music we suggested, gave us feedback, and we in turn made new suggestions. Everybody started joking that we were now their personal DJs.

We created Pandora so that we can have that same kind of conversation with you.

Pandora is a music discovery service designed to help you enjoy music you already know, and to help you discover new music you’ll love.

It’s powered by the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken, the Music Genome Project: a crazy project started back in early 2000 to capture the complex musical DNA of songs using a large team of highly-trained musicians.

Just tell us one of your favorite songs or artists and we’ll launch a streaming station to explore that part of the musical universe.”

I found this really cool site today called Pandora. (I have since been proclaimed Captain Cool by Nick because of it. Hurrah!) Pandora is a great example of what the Internet is becoming, and how web 2.0 is changing the way we think of the Internet. Pandora is alot like an Internet radio station. But instead of listening some someone’s play list or something like that, Pandora asks you to input an artist or song name, and then uses it’s Music Genome to find and play songs and artists similar to what you put in, and helps you find new artists, songs, and sometimes even musical styles that hopefully you’ll like. I approve!

St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is fun. Mostly because it’s fun watching drunk people. And drinking is fun too, but mostly watching drunk people. We went to Flatlander’s for St. Patrick’s Day this year. Got ourselves a couple of titanics of brew (A titanic is a 4L pitcher of beer for those that don’t know), and I think that Great Western Black is now my favorite Canadian beer. Guinness is still my #1 for now though, followed by Kilkenny. Mmmm Mmmm good. And Ham got himself snickerdoodled (As he likes to call it). Good times.
