Flying the Coop

Flappy Bird. It’s the newest must-have app that’s been booming and causing non-Flappy Bird folks who hear about this thing on Facebook to say…. But wait. Flappy Bird is now gone. The Android and iPhone game has been pulled by it’s creator, Dong Nguyen, who said that the game’s success had become it’s Albatross. The game had players steer a tiny bird through an obstacle course of Mario-like metal pipes. It’s shooting to the top of the most downloaded charts was a mystery to all. Originally released for the iPhone in May, the app didn’t become the top free iPhone app...

Biggest Dork Ever!

One of the BIG reasons I do not play games online is all the cyberjacks who like to lure you in and ambush you for your stuff, or just to kill you for fun. EVE Online is all about buying, piloting and blowing up spaceships. Its in-game currency, Interstellar Kredits, carries a real-world value. The Revenant — one of only three ships that big in existence — carries a value of 309 billion ISK, making it among the priciest bits of code in the game. The owner of the Revenant, a player named TSID, had saved for years to acquire the ship,...

Queen Elizabeth Skydiving at Olympics – She’s a Man, Baby!

During the olympics, we saw many shots of the Queen Elizabeth. The opening started out with her and James Bond (Daniel Craig) heading from Buckingham Palace to Olympic Park. During the video, they jump out of a plane and parachute to the ground. However, it wasn’t the Queen that was jumping, it was a man, baby! To the point, it was Gary Connery. He’s a professional stuntman, that has been jumping out of planes for years. He was also the first person to successfully land only using a wing-suit. No word on who Daniel Craig’s stunt double was. It could...

Best Muppet Video Yet: Remember Little Bunny Foo Foo? 0

Best Muppet Video Yet: Remember Little Bunny Foo Foo?

This post was republished to restore lost posts. Thanks Google Cache that helped me recreate. Well I thought that this age of Political Correctness would not warrant a video like this. Yet this Muppet video reminds me of the old thinking of cartoons. The one where you would blow up someone and everyone would laugh.   In this case, think “Little Bunny Foo Foo“. The line used to go: Little Bunny Foo Foo hopping through the forrest – Picking up the field mice and BOP them on the head. The line got changed (for P.C.) to: Little Bunny Foo Foo hopping...

Hero Up or Shut Up! Superhero City

Well, I just have NO energy to beat down Farmville today– because I’ve been too busy playing Superhero City! Facebook’s place for superhero hi jinx, and no farming. A super hero sim with ’3D animated battles’, which is a BIT of a stretch. The fighting is pretty comic book-ish, and you have no control over the fight itself. You build and arm your hero, with missions, practice fighting, and a good ol-fashioned job. The facebook game Superhero City has a few things that make it stand out from other games. The battles actually unfold in front of you. Seeing both...

EA Games in FARMVILLE?

Electronic Arts has hinted that at least one of the gaming behemoth’s titles is headed to Facebook. An anonymous source says this does mean that there will be a Facebook version of “Madden NFL”, and that it will be a “simpler experience” of the original game. It is easy to see that, if this takes off, more of EA’s titles could get a Facebook presence. And why not? FARMVILLE is really just a version of THE SIMS. As anyone into Facebook is aware, some of their most level headed friends have fallen victim to this cyber-growing game! Late last year...

Perhaps they can find new ways to motivate…

Adidas, the big shoe apparel company, is poised to take their product lines to new heights! First, there is the ‘Star Wars’ themed line. It features shoes based on such icons from Darth Vader and princess Leia, to the enigmatic AT-ATs. There are also hoodies, track tops and tees. The force is with you, and available now, fanatic! AND, if you are the kind of person who’s willing to shell out upwards of $100 for those, might I interest you in a game shoe? No, not Basketball! Adidas is also bringing the sneaker into the 21st century with it’s augmented...

Go to Kidsland!

Even Kids need a place to go on the internet. So why not Kidsland? Thinkout Solution LLC, released their first official KidsLand service. With games, movies and activities, this site is set to teach youngsters while keeping them entertained. It looks like a great site. Unfortunately, it does come with a price. $6.95 a month or $62.95 a year, which is a $20 savings. Then again if it helps your kid become more successful in class, then it would be worth it, right? At least the BLOG is free. So your question might be: Is this really a dorky thing?...
