Throwing Water Around and Recording It

Just a quick video today titled “Water Sculpture” from Shinichi Maruyama and composited by Tetsushi Wakasugi. These are the things that make me wish I had a camera nice enough to capture hi-speed like this. I would do cool things too, like shoot paintballs at the wall, hit friends in the face with water balloons…you know, Jackass style stuff. I guess my video captures wouldn’t really be art, but entertaining – for me and my immature friends at least 😉

Now You Can Play Leisure Suit Larry Online and on the iPad

This has to be one of the coolest gaming sites I’ve come across in a long time. Sarien.net has created an online portal where you can currently play nine different classic Sierra adventure games. If you owned one of those huge IBM computers back in the late 80’s/early 90’s, you probably know what I’m talking about. You can currently play on your computer, iPad and soon on the iPhone.

You have no idea how many times I played Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards. I also played my fair share of Kings Quest III: To Heir is Human. I hated the evil wizard Manannan so much! I’m gonna make some time to play some of these games this weekend.

P.S. Remember to put the condom on Larry before sleeping with the hooker 😉

The Most Dramatic Super Mario Short Film Ever

I’ve come across another Super Mario Bros. fan made short film and as always, it’s good. This is one is really damn good. And dark. If you’ve got about 8 minutes to spare and want to watch perhaps the saddest, most dramatic Super Mario story of all time, check it out below.

You Got Served Meets Fiddler on the Roof

I love mash-ups, and this movie trailer style mash-up featuring the movies You Got Served and Fiddler on the Roof is hilarious. This is the only way you’ll get me to watch anything related to the You Got Served franchise or any other similar movie for that matter.

Things You Never Knew You Wanted to Know

Today I found out that Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince of Bel Air was the voice actor for Shredder in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons, How the gun on the original Nintendo worked, and what the British equivalent of “That’s what she said” is. That’s a lot of fun things to learn about in 30 minutes.

TodayIFoundOut.com is a place where people post articles about the random things they’ve learned so that you can read about them yourself. None of this stuff is necessary to know in life, but makes for great chit-chat with friends when you’re sitting around the table having beers.
