Secret Sauce, Tarantino and disappointed animals

Raging Bull with Hot Chicks Well, it’s almost been another three weeks since I posted anything, so here’s some stuff. In Internet time, a few of these items might be decades old now. Follow me on Twitter for more frequent updates of random, useless information.

Bumbershoot was really fun this year, except for the rain.

You might want to check out the new “Hot Chicks in Black & White Flicks!” series from Secret Sauce. Remakes include 12 Angry Men and On The Waterfront. I like the Raging Bull one best, but I was mildly amused by all of them.

Also brought to you by Secret Sauce is this live-action trailer for My Little Pony: Reign of Buttercup Sprinkles. I, for one, welcome our new pony overlords. Total worldwide pony occupation in less than six hours!

Take a look at this Quentin Tarantino Movies topic at Cracked. Note: If you haven’t seen Inglourious Basterds, you can skip over that column to avoid spoilers. I loved the “Tarantino on Pop Culture” section. Hilarious. But you should also really watch Inglourious Basterds. It’s awesome.

These are two cool music videos at Vimeo:

  • Bathtub IV” by Keith Loutit (song is “Clementine” by Megan Washington)
  • White Swan” by Sil van der Woerd

Photographer Palla has created some amazing kaleidoscopic images of Japanese cityscapes.

Disappointed sea otter Funny animals and science

This BuzzFeed article isn’t that great, as I’ve seen animals looking more disappointed than these guys, but it’s cute: Extremely Disappointed Animals.

Also from BuzzFeed: Mother Nature crying in a glacier in Norway.

Very funny: Cat Showers In Sink.

Ah, good ol’ Laser Cats. How could I forget about you? Ignore the article and just watch the embedded “SNL” videos if you haven’t seen them.

This is an interesting article: “Maori legend of man-eating bird is true.” In this same vein, I watched a “Mega Beasts” episode on Discovery Channel about the so-called Terror Bird (large carnivorous flightless birds that dominated during the Cenozoic).

Here’s a little more science: “Evolutionary mutation is caused by oxygen.” A quick quote: “DNA damage by oxidation is the primary cause of mutation.” I find this stuff fascinating.

I’ll end with this fontastic graphic detailing the exact stroke differences between Arial and Helvetica (via swissmiss). Neat.
