PAX South 2017 – Puyo Puyo Tetris Tournament Finals

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017 at 1:50 am | Video

Puyo Puyo Tetris‘s Swap mode is really good! It’s 25 seconds of Tetris, then 25 seconds of Puyo Puyo, back and forth until someone loses one of the games. It’s like chessboxing. At PAX South 2017, I put my Tetris stacking up against Puyo master heavenchai in this intense final match. Watch for the twists!

Edit: Here’s another upload that used the replays I saved during the second and third games. I forgot to save the first game’s replay; sorry!

Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar with World Order

Anime Hell once again delivered the Japanese weirdness at Ohayocon. I expected that 2016’s Japanese commercials would be just as good as 2015’s. The one that surprised me was a Tissot watch ad as a music video for the band World Order’s song World Order. I wish all my clocks could sync up like this band. This reminds me of OK Go.

Casey Neistat – Human Flying Drone

I finally dig my way out of backlogs and fake news and find a ten foot monster drone carrying a snowboarding filmmaker. Doesn’t that make it a helicopter instead? Casey Neistat, best known for crashing his bike, puts his life in the hands of the world’s largest homemade drone as it tows him all over Finland. There’s a making-of video too.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Monday, November 14th, 2016 at 11:40 pm | Video

Hey Internet, you all need to do more fact checking before you post stuff. You could post that a dead gorilla got 15,000 write-in votes for president, but you’d be wrong. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is a comedy news show, but they love to call out mainstream media and celebrities when they say something that’s false. We all need more of that, and it’s easier to watch when it’s funny.

/r/CrappyDesign is a blindingly colorful Subreddit that collects unfortunate design mistakes from all over the world. They’re the Engrish.com of half-baked engineering. Good old TwistedSifter recently did what I do with artists and made a post of the best/worst of the bunch.
