The H&M Building

I know some folks have been pretty annoyed about the gigantic H&M billboard covering the Flatiron Building. Turns out you're not along: the Department of Buildings has apparently issued nine violations regarding this ad.

Migeleh Joins the Fold (Plus, Some Bunnies)

On Sunday night, Migeleh and I have a couple friends over for a vegetarian sushi dinner. After stuffing our faces, we were lazing around, searching the internet for inappropriate blogspot domain names (don't ask), when my friend D. Sasha (as usual, a pseudonym) saw the Zuma shortcut on my desktop.

After a brief treatise by yours truly on the highly addictive nature of our mysitical frog oracle, he decided to give it a try. Of course, as a Zuma greenhorn, it only took him two rounds to run through three lives. I was about to start a new game and show him how it's done when Migeleh said she wanted to play a round and finally see what all the pod-fuss was about. She sat down and proceeded to kick Zuma ass for eight to ten rounds without losing a single life. Finally, she decided to call it a night. She didn't seem particularly impressed.

But then after dinner last night I had to spend a couple hours researching my term paper, and from the other room I hear "Hey [Pesach]...can I play Zuma?"

Bwahahahahahahahaaa!!!

In related news: I'm not sure I can say that it will be the next Zuma, but Dodge that Anvil is a good time.

Let out your inner gansta

www.gizoogle.com

don't you hate when you've already read your favorite sites online and it's only 1:30 in the afternoon?! well...now you can read them AGAIN...but this time in street language (i.e. every other word has izzle tacked on at the end).
so sketch bomb and emil can now enjoy their weird infertility blogs with a twist. zeke can get the news from the same old boring sites (new york times, bbc whatever) but in the language of the people. pesach can spice up his posts on lame punk slogan with some hot new slang. and me, i can sit here and ponder why it is that i find this site so amuzing.

just enter your website of choice, click search, then click translate. prepare for a life changing experience....for rizzle.

Workday Schmirkday

This page has a whole lot of good games. I especially like these three:

Magic Vines
Freakout
Ricochet: Lost Worlds

The last one makes you download a plugin to play, but if you got administrative priveleges when C_iD_t was installed on your machine, it shouldn't be a problem.

Check out this prank, carried out at that psycho Times Square McDonald's...

Magical Journey

I had a really bizarre dream last night.

Emil, Javert, Migeleh, and I were going on vacation with a handful of other unspecified people. I didn't know where we were going, but I knew that Javert was driving us all there. He picked us up (Emil was also in the car) at my house - which was out in what looked like an Alaskan steppe or something - and we set off. Pretty soon, we got to the edge of a huge cliff and some really flimsy looking metal wings folded out from the chassis and we flew over the side.

It turns out that our destination was a huge island in the middle of the Atlantic that was shaped like a butte, with straight vertical sides. In order to get to the top (for some reason the flying car had left the scene at that point), you had to step onto a small platform that acted as an elevator. Of course, since I'm totally afraid of heights, I had to spend the trip up to the top with clenched teeth.

When we got to the top, we all checked in to our motel rooms (the place looked like a old fashioned motor inn out in the country), we decided we had to go buy groceries.

Then I woke up. So what's the significance of all that?

Scribblins

Man, you guys have really fallen off the ball with this revived podblog that I worked so hard to resurrect. Disappointing.

Anyway, check out this toy from Zefrank. Make sure to adjust the scribbler settings during the second part in order to add color, etc.

I also suggest sending the finished product to your colleagues.
