An inspiring message

South Africa

I don't really understand this

But I guess you can play your own songs on all your devices.

The Web Screws up your mind

Can't talk now, blogging.

Can it play fetch


I mean, besides the Hoth station. That wasn't much of a good game of fetch.

Princess Bride Website

A few of you will enjoy this.

Mystery Science Theater 3000

In 8 Bit.

Interesting information



This song is an international hit and not just played for Hawaiian radios.

Doomed


So now we know it is perfect for games with hellspawn.

E3 20 years ago

It had a lot more suits.

Ni No Kuni



The animators, writers, and world designers are Studio Ghibli. If you know such films as Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, and Princess Mononoke. The game designers made Professor Layton and his many puzzles. This is sort of a game in my dreams.

Cat Soccer



My cats used to love this game.

Somebody start writing

I will happily play the villain in this movie.

Rocket Surgery


It's like pulling teeth.

It doesn't hurt at all. It just feels like a flick. Now just stand and take the hits from this computer automated sentry as it shoots you.

Billy Jean Cover Song



Beautiful.

End Credits song to a great game

The world is missing a really amazing guy.

Non Graffiti



This guy is really cleaning up well.

Incredibly cute baby otter



Anyone else suddenly wanting to be a proffesional animal caretaker? Anyone else thinking about otter pops?

John Gnarr

Doing things that only a comedian could get away with, like becoming mayor of Rekyavic, Icelands capitol

On the topic of Germanic stuff. Video is Video in German. Film is Film. The same with Movie. TV is Fernsehapparat. And thats why German TV sucks.

Phillip K Dick

Perhaps one of the greatest Sci Fi writers in the world.

Pirate Bay's parent company is gone

Pirate Bay is fine though. Oh and the weird o thing means the A has a Y sound with it. Sort of a Ay.

My name is Keith Borgholthaus and I study useless languages.

Geeky?

This guy got an old game to play on newer machines.

Rent a friend

We used to do this in gradeschool with the Nintendo.

How Powerful is Farmville?

It has the population equal to Japan, and can get this done.

It's just like a videogame

Only in real life... sort of.

Ray Guns for Better Crops

Phillip K Dick better not be right on everything, that would be really bad. However, this time it is totally nice.

Or as I liked to call them, Mom's Cajun relatives.

Idea Factory


Legos do that to me too.

Beat Boxer Jews Harp


The Techno Remix will never happen

Beaches


I hang out on the wrong beaches.

Singing Flight of the Bumblebee


Don't you hate those videos where you say in your head, "I could do that." Yeah, I can't actually do that either, but man I sure think I can.

Dutch Skimmers finally arrive on American Shores

This is a huge deal, and it gets into all sorts of politics, I will likely write a serious article on it for the Ke Alaka'i. But for now, enjoy this article.

Letters from Ash

Now for Sale.

Click on Transformer

Then get ready for awesome.

Mario

As retold by legend.

Physical Activity Symposium

Because that's what we all need. A symposium where people sit around, eating really expensive food, discussing why no one goes out to exercise anymore.

Hardcore


I sort of got a tear in my eye seeing this one.

I love this GIF


Mario in 3D!

Human LCD screen



Korea is weird.

This Owl is Awesome!


I feel the same way when dealing with people around me. Sometimes big, sometimes small, and sometimes all together evil.

Mario by Violin


I had to figure out that the violin was actually making all of the sound effects from the game. Videogame Violins is at an all time high now.

Portal 2 coolness

Smart Squirrel



Though I think while it was in the tube, I would have grabbed it.

Verizon trying to make more money

By not telling you how to spend less.

Toshiba makes a Duel touch screen laptop

It looks very familiar. Still, if it works and is cheaper than an iPad, I would buy one.

The price of Rockets

It is going down says entrepreneurs.

Music of the Sun

Suddenly New Age people don't know what to do with their lives.

New TV Show

Entirely for download. No really, they want you to do this.

Google Wave


Google Wave is now open. What is it? I have no idea either.

I dream in Retro

I have had dreams like this, only it involved Contra, Mystical Ninja, and Zelda.

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Picture it

I only saw the third one.

Zombies

Science is getting into it.

The Yankees lost mascot

It sucked, but I don't know why.

5 Word Response

And a lot of eating.

Joke Thief

Ok, the truth is all comedians steal jokes. This is not a secret among them. They have competitions over who can tell the same joke better. It looks like this guy is in trouble because he pulled down a politician. One note about this link, Comedians can be very coarse and foul in their humour, so if you don't like a joke from a certain comedian, just skip to the next one.

Lung Transplant

Are not all perfect.

Kung Fu kid

Karate Kid. Still a cute kid doing a cool kick.

The top site for Nintendo E3 stuff

It's actually by Nintendo. Weird I know, but its true.



I think that pretty much describes it all.

Monday, June 14, 2010

North Korea makes Flash games

They are for sale. The truth is far weirder than any joke I could tell.

NASA is slowly getting useless

I am not kidding. In fact it sort of shows a sign of the future. I could go on for hours on everything that NASA has introduced. But I think I can put it bluntly in saying you wouldn't be reading this without NASA. Just about everything on computers today is from technology NASA designed, evenn down to picture programs and Hard Drives. Losing NASA is losing a major power source for the technological break throughs of the country.

Physics

Is always cool when someone tells you something interesting about it. Like this equation might mean that harnessing that quantum universe can create an artificial gravity, however it also means that ringworld is wrong.

R2 the Iron Man

Wow, I just imagined c-3PO in Iron Man colors, not as much of a change as I thought it would be. R2-D2 looks completely awesome though.

Lazers

By and far I look forward to when we all walk around with lightsabers or blasters. When people ask why they were created, I can honestly answer that Geeks just wanted it to be true.

Newsies



I always thought the film was weird.

This man

is brilliant.

Little Orphan Annie

Um, thats a cliffhanger.

Iron Man


A Much more accurate term

35 famous buildings

As done in Lego.

Gran Turismo 5



So I am going through all of the announcements for E3 right now and the only video I just really enjoyed was this one, or the one with Raving Rabbids.



I will be honest, most of the games seemed like the same old games. Even though Microsoft was showing off a new controlling style with Kinect, the only original game was the one above. This game will be really hard to sell because no one knows what is going on. Still a cool video though.

All in all, today wasn't very interesting. Tomorrow will have more presentations by Sony and then Nintendo.

Oh wait, Microsoft did have Cirque De Solei dance while showing off Kinect. There was a robotic Elephant.


Let the games begin I guess.

Google is now challenging everyone

No really, they have a program for everything, and are now selling programs using their own download selling thing.

Rabbids


I have never played a single one of these games, but I love their videos.

She is a hit

Or she gets one.

Sweden Works for equal rights

For both sides in fact.

I really don't think this is news

No really, this shouldn't surprise anyone. It should be right up there with the English drinking Tea.

South Africa is showing a really good side

I have a good friend who lives in South Africa. I wish I could show you the many pictures he has, or let you hear him give the long talks on how wonderful it is to live in SA. I can show you that there are people noticing what he has talked about for years.

How is a Raven like a Writing desk

I don't know, but its best not to get the raven angry

Fussball in Lego



The website is in German but really cool to look at. Seemingly all of the World Cup games are in there. I just don't know how to say United States in German. Sorry.

Brand Loyalty

By the jib of this man's mustache this must be true.

The Earth is Flat

These guys have scientific proof of it.

Prince Poppycock



The Marriage of Figaro is one of my favorite operas.

Plane Instructions

I can do these ones.

Portal on Mac



One of my all time favorite games is now on Mac.

Goldeneye Remake



One of the greatest games ever released will be remade. If it is anything like movie remakes, expect fools to be pitied.

The right time to photograph

Is when she finally proves she is a Satyr.

Facebucks

I would have called Credits that.

It is still illegal to hack

But if someone says outloud that something is hackable, is that illegal?

Michael Jackson's new videogame

I actually remember losing at Moonwalker in the arcade.

Beards of the World Unite!!

      The World Beard and Mustache Championship was a wild and woolly ordeal. Hope and Cheryl were on site to see the many wonderful beards in all their glory.
     I asked them a few questions to find out how it was. It was Hope began to describe it,"There were all sort of varieties. There was one in particular , it went down to his chin and went out 7-12 inches."
       She said her favorite beard was Beard of Warpath. He was shivering in the Oregon coolness.
      The Bearding personalities were varied some were, "Very serious about their beards. Some wouldn't even let Miss Oregon, a judge, touch them. Others were just silly and having a fun time."
       Although there were no panels on how to properly grow a beard Hope did say, "...the host (emcee) wrote a book on facial hair."
       Hope was disadvantaged at the show because she was actually a 10 year old girl but if she could grow a beard it would be, "A cool one. One that is unique, flashy and in-your-face (ha ha)."     When asked if they would be returning Cheryl -Hope's Mom- said, "We wouldn't miss it! We met awesomely fun people, who traveled such a long way to be a part of this."

I spent 3 days playing this game. It sucks you in.

I before E

Unless your name is Keith.

Something we will never see in Oahu

Enough Snow to fill the entire city.

Funimation

A legal site to watch Anime, it is sponsored by Anime companies. I was watching Darker Than Black when I realized it should be shared. If you watch, remember that some shows have large portions of violence and blood. Some have story too.

Dustin Geddes was amazed by this

He and I had a conversation on Arnold Schwarzennegar's height. I found this site.

Man Cakes

They are what Wall Street guys are making.

Artificial Retinas

Entirely something an Optometrist would like. And sort of hate.

This family

Has a sense of humour.

A Matter of Size

My brother and I were discussing the rate and price of memory. We realized that it would be far cheaper to buy 2 GB of Ram for a simple machine, than buying something much smaller. Lets put this in proper context, Windows XP can be run easily with 2GB. In fact, it can be run with 1. Let's say you had a small device that only needed about 4 bits of memory, but really, 2 GB was the best price.



This device wouldn't need wires, it connects by Wi-Fi, it wouldn't need a monitor, a computer over at central can connect to it and find out how it is doing. It would basically be exactly the computer you wanted 10 years ago, for about $5. What does it do? Screw things.



It is connected by USB dongle to a screwdriver robot. A simple machine, that only needs so much to do. Imagine the entire factory being controlled by all of these little computers, working away at these easy tasks. This is a nightmare waiting to happen.



You see, it is connected to a wireless network. This network can be accessed by a laptop. In fact, it is likely not even thought about how dangerous the problem is. One machine goes bad, ah well. The screws did not get in tight enough, the entire box it was making is faulty. The computer running it was too powerful for anyone to care if a seperate program took over and changed the commands just a little. Instead of 10 turns, this little screwdriver did 8. Just enough to give it room to work and then bust inside of warranty.



People would go looking for the culprit, but somehow he didn't show up. The Camera system and automatic gun system is controlled Via Wi-fi. In fact, most everything is connected now, and hacked just right. It appears that nothing happened, and no one was awake. The mocha machine somehow put in decaf that day. Except one guy, who was actually playing farmville. He was arrested as the suspect. He hacked the system, and was the only guy awake.



Imagine now the entire recall, because some guy with a laptop got ahold of that little computer. The tech guys won't know it happened, unless they go into every device and check the code. They don't know how many turns to make either, it was written down on a computer, which has access to the wireless network. So they change the code themselves to another screw. This one needed 10 as well, but got 15. If the box was squeezed in a certain way, the box cracks.



What does this box do? It controls the salt on McDonalds' french fries. They get salted badly, McDonalds goes under. Now imagine the Burger King with a laptop.



Ready for more insanity? Imagine that we create all new technology in the next 10 years. True holograms, and scanning devices are used to change communication forever. Now imagine this technolgy 10 years after that. You have to realize that the processing power and memory is far superior to the computer you have now, and it fits, inside of a pocket watch. It has 200 Petabytes, and can run calculations in numbers I can't even find in Wikipedia right now.



Programs like Windows simply don't grow with this and remain at something like 30 Terabytes. This device replaces the old stupid computer from 20 years before, the same one that got hacked into so easily. Guess what? This device is not only hackable, it can be sent back in time.



Now imagine picking up this device in 1972. Keep in mind, a Kylobyte is considered big stuff at the moment. A Gigabyte is something only Governments have, and the entire computer fits inside of a warehouse. This little device is picked up by a kid. He thinks it's cool. He can talk to people on it, he has no idea who. His parents worry that it is possessed by satan, and the government wants it for examination.



This device was cheaply made, and probably has some of the same stuff an iPhone does. It has a scanning device, like a camera, only it records it differently. It easily can tell you about things within a mile of it. This little boy is sent out on a magical quest. He finds the hearing dongle that connects to his ear. A special controller for games, and even a screen.



The government chases after this boy. The device he holds is able to tell him where the GMen are, and how to escape. It can make money from ordinary paper, if you get the printer.



Now imagine that the computer is fully put together, it can talk to our little boy, and tells him to give instructions to the GMen.

E3

I will try to blog some on E3 or the Electronic Gaming Expo on this blog. It's next week and always catches my interests. I don't think I can hide my love of videogames too much. I will try to have other links for the week as well.

The big news will be that Sony and Microsoft are releasing motion controlled games, thus showing that Nintendo Wii has beaten them. Sony is trying to appear to know what they are talking about. But most people have caught on that they are suffering pretty badly. Microsoft is...

The Playstation 3 and XBox 360 systems were promoted to a specific age and person, and guess what? The Motion Control games are also for the same people.

I love the Wii, when people ask what system I loved, I say the Wii. Because I get to play all the games I loved as a kid without having to argue over which system was better. I got my Sonic next to my Mario like the way I like it. So yes, expect a lot of Nintendo news. I will do my best to keep it weird news though.

You will note that I did all of that in one post. I will try to keep that up.

8Bit in 3D

Not quite what I had in mind.

Wait a minute.... Ok, so Nintendo is going to be releasing a new system soon. Its a hand held device that is getting a lot of attention and speculation right now. What if you had 3D for Mario Bros? Think about it. I am so Geeking out at the idea right now.

Murphies Laws

I found several corollaries. .. Or was that Arteries?
