Revolution Controller is Revolutionary

Posted by Mark

revolution controller

The design of the Nintendo Revolution controller was finally made public today. Its incredibly creative and definitely kicks both Microsoft and Sonys ass in the controller department.. especially Sony who have their weird looking boomerang controller. The Revolution controller comes in two parts (one is pictured above) and has motion sensors so it can detect if you are holding the controller sideways or which direction you are turning it. This can be used in games so for example if you are playing Star Wars you can swing the controller around and your character on the screen will swing his Light Saber the same way you are. So now the Nintendo Revolution has 2 things going for it, you can play old Nintendo games on the system plus it has an incredibly smart controller. [Link]

Update: Check out this link for a lot more better pictures of the controller [Link]

Fucking Gross!

gross

I came back home today to find the most disgusting advert hanging on my door… a fucking tampon box! I am not even sure its tampon, could be adult diapers since they are so huge. I mean come on this is just fucking disgusting. Imagine coming home and finding a box of Always hanging from your door. If it was some unknown brand I would understand their desperation but Always doing this?!?! So I can’t view porn privately at home but its somehow ok for companies to hang tampons on my door. Fucking gross.

Update: I ended up having lunch at Fudds. I had the cheese burger with three kinds of cheese on it.. 1/2 pounder, well done.

Make Your Own Comics

Posted by Mark

comic life

This is a cool mac app I just downloaded. The application is called Comic Life and allows you to easily create comics using your pictures and text. Its VERY EASY to use and has numerous options for a variety of layouts and balloons. I was easily able to create a stupid but really cool looking comic in like less then a minute since it automatically loaded up my iPhoto pictures automatically in the sidebar and allowed me to just drag and drop images into the layout. You can download it and try it and its only 4MB. [Link]

This is not fake, this is real. This is a note Bush was writing to Condoleezza Rice!

U.S. President George W. Bush writes a note to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during a Security Council meeting at the 2005 World Summit and 60th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York September 14, 2005. World leaders are exploring ways to revitalize the United Nations at a summit on Wednesday but their blueprint falls short of Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s vision of freedom from want, persecution and war.

Monster Mints

Posted by Mark

Monster Mints

A girl who just came back from Germany brought with her super cool mints called Monster Mints. I tried the red one which is Cinnamon flavored and fuck is it strong. It tastes like the red Chiclets packet except 100 times as powerful. Its so strong that its painful to keep on your tongue. Do they sell these in Kuwait? I haven’t seen them before but I will be requesting them from Sultan Center. [Link]
