I have just noticed that [livejournal.com profile] james_nicoll has a, "memetic prophylactic recommended," tag. Nifty tag and good advice to keep some of those on hand.

Interested in getting yourself a free icon? Tod Wills aka [livejournal.com profile] djinni is doing his eleventh free icon day, this time themed Halloween in July. You can find the details at his Halloween in July post. The icon I'm using on this post is one of his. You can also check out the results of his labor for Icon Day 10.

While you're checking stuff out, Tod also does a really cool webcomic, Ekwara and does the pencils for another nifty webcomic, Crimson Flag.

Pixels!

If you haven't watched Patrick Jean's video Pixels yet, then do so, it is made of awesome and niftiness.

Like the icon on this post? He's one of my characters in the Mars Academy RPG, Pithani the student and student-librarian. He's a pretty serious student although he can be playful (he is one of the youngest students on campus), but in the library he's a serious guy.

He was drawn as part of [livejournal.com profile] djinni's 5th Free Icon Day. You can see more of his icon day work at his post Every Icon Day. Just be sure your computer is ready to load 623 icons. :}

And if you like those, check out his comics Ekwara, Crimson Flag which he does with [livejournal.com profile] virmir and Dracula which is based on the Bram Stoker novel.


This is also a sign of how watching nifty people can lead you to other nifty people, as it was a post by the also quite nifty [livejournal.com profile] haikujaguar that first pointed me in his direction.

(And how nifty, the first LJ spam comment that I've caught myself... DEE-LEET!)

[livejournal.com profile] space_coyote has posted pictures of volume 2 of Yokaiden. What? You say you haven't read volume 1 yet? What are you waiting for, run down to the store and pick it up. It's fun!

Volume 2 comes with nifty features like pre-printed, pre-assembled pages. That's right! No longer do you need to print, cut, stack, and glue the pages, only to then need to find the heaver paper to print the cover on. Del Rey's manga group has already done that for you, all you need due is turn the pages and read.

Honestly, I'm looking forward to volume 2, and you have find preview pictures of Yokaiden 2 at the link you just read over.

I have been tempted lately to learn crochet or knitting for one simple reason. Amigurumi Look at that critter, it's cute! Oh look, another cute fox! Cute sleepy fox! Or a fox guarding cookies

Yeah, I like cute critters. Yeah, I'm a guy. Your point?

Cute burns away the cynicism. Enough said.

So it seems that Adam and Jamie were invited to NVISION to promote NVidia. So they decided to demonstrate what a GPU is. Using three of their favorite things. Blowing stuff up. Shooting stuff. And robots.

Mythbusters GPU vs CPU, part 2,

"Leonardo. He may look like a skid steered battlebots platform with paintball gun mounted on his head. But in fact, at heart, he's a painter."

"It's just like this on the show. Only they edit it to make it faster."

"It's kinda like a parallel processor. Or GPU. If it works." "If it doesn't, we are screwed."

"These aren't prizes. These are sheets to cover you guys up."

Now this is nifty. I trust everyone is familiar with the typography animation set to the dialog from Pulp Fiction, "English, do you speak it?" Well, here is a similar one set to dialog from the Firefly episode, Out of Gas.

Have you ever wondered what the opening credits to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya would look like if the people who did Cowboy Bebop's credits got the job? Me neither. But then I saw this, and I have to say I like it.




What?

Bed?

Guess I ought to try sleeping tonight, no?

Boston anime fan creates an AMV with his reaction to the city's recent civic paranoia. Said AMV then wins the comedy catagory in at Anime Boston 2007.



No Reason, an AMV

Woo! The opening theme and credits for Magical Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS has been posted to youtube. This third series jumps forward to take Nanoha to high school (and secretly special agents of the Space Time Administration Bureau).

Hello, American anime distributors. Can we hear words like licensing and release date?

There's no actual nudity but unless you have a very friendly boss this video is probably not safe for viewing at work...

Fred Perry's band of Pirate-Ninja-Leprechauns from Gold Digger sing about the joy of being a pirate. (Music borrowed from a show called LazyTown)

Walks off singing to himself, "Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free ... we'll dig up the box ... burst open the locks and then we'll say HOORAY!"

The Badgers have been overplayed. There are no badgers in this flash video. But it did make me laugh. An Homage, located at weebles-stuff.

Remember MC Skat Kat?

Okay, some of you are a too young for that. Back in the pre-pre-pre-American Idol days, Paula Abdul did a video for a song on her first album called Opposites Attract. Which involved a back and forth between herself and a rapper calling himself MC Skat Kat. And when the video showed up on MTV (Yes, once upon a time MTV showed music videos. Really. No I'm not making that up. Honest! Sheesh, go check wikipedia already!) the co-star of the video was an animated cat.

I didn't realize it at the time, but it seems MC Skat Kat made an attempt to go solo, which included at least one video for a song titled Kat Strut that had the same animated cat and company (sans Paula). Unfortunately for Skat Kat's career as a rapper it didn't sell well enough to lead to any further albums. However, the voice behind Skat Kat, Derrick Stevens, is still involved in the world of music. It seems that a about a year and a half ago he became production manager for 89.3 The Current, a public radio station in Minnesota. And this is not yet another NPR Classical Music station (although I do like our local NPR classics station), just check out 89.3's list of songs of the day.

Nifty.
Now, to mangle Adrian Ramos's closing line. I'm going to bed! (Yikes, without Firefox's inline spell checker, this would be filled with sleep deprivation induced spelling errors.)
