Existential Shotgun

This week’s shotgun post is an odd mix, with some news thrown in at the end. Happy Friday, and enjoy the weekend. I’ll likely be working.

  • THEY'RE TAKING THE HOBBITS TO ISENGARD! (lotr, mashup, music, video, humor)
    • Legolas sings for you in this jaunty music video.
  • Time (art, images, photography, weird)
    • Snapshots of a family as they grow older year by year. Interesting to see the gradual changes.
  • Guess Which Movie (entertainment, film, movies, photo, quiz, trivia, game)
    • It’s “Name That Movie” but with fewer pictures and multiple choice. Many rounds. I’ve only played through the first round, but it should be easy for you folks - veterans of “Name That Movie.”
  • defective yeti: Games For Kids (games, kids)
    • Recommendations for good games that kids can enjoy. From defective yeti!
  • EvokeTV (tv, entertainment, video)
    • EvokeTV helps you track what’s on, so you can catch only the good stuff. Also - while you’re watching a show, it creates a chat room for other watchers to discuss the show! It’s the best online TV resource I’ve seen yet.
  • The Huge Entity: Reasons Why ‘You’ Don’t Exist… (philosophy, humor)
    • These people will tell you why you don’t exist. Essays to make your brain hurt.
  • Compfused.com - Painted Room Illusions (illusion, art)
    • Patterns that look like nonsense from all but one vantage point. Stand in the right spot, and it all comes together.
  • 'LOST' Notebook for ABC’s LOST (entertainment, tv, reference, lost)
    • "Notebook" of info about the LOST universe.
  • PistolWimp - Star Wars: Bloopers and Outtakes (video, film, funny)
    • Some bloopers from teh Star Wars films.

The painted room illusions are amazing! It's hard enough just painting a straight stripe. (For me.) I also enjoyed the NTM rip-off ;-) and the Star Wars thingy.
