Monday Morning “Impediment to Productivity” 20050907

Good Morning and welcome to your week. This week only the regular assortment of stuff that amused me ( the audio special is being "held over" as they say). Don't forget to waste some time at the blog http://thatchspace.com/wordpress/ So on with the show... This contribution from Mark at DrumDrumWaterToys . "I've finally found a religion I can believe in (just waiting for the next time 7th day Adventists knock on my door so I can explain my religious beliefs to them in great detail!)": http://www.venganza.org/ (touched by His Noodly Appendage) This item is from Jools Q: Why is duct tape like the force. A: Because it has a light side and a darkside and binds the universe together. Actually I have always preferred Gaffa tape myself but as you will see there is more to duct tape than meets the eye. Powerful it is in the force. http://www.ducttapeguys.com/ (more…)

Monday Morning “Impediment to Productivity” 20050829

Good Morning, Here is your weekly waste of time. (There is some more stuff on the blog http://thatchspace.com/wordpress/ ) anyway on with the show. We haven't harassed the feline animal world for a while so this week checkout http://www.stuffonmycat.com/ Flash Time: Spend a little time today (that's polite for blow the whole morning) with "N, 'the way of the Ninja.'" This Flash game will keep you occupied through 30 "episodes" of gold, exploration, and killer robots. I like the character animation here. It's really expressive for something that is so simple. A perfect way to start the week ! Make sure the volume is down. http://70.84.34.106/~mediaun/ngame.swf Poom is like that game you play when you've only got one ping pong paddle (or tennis racket) and one ball: you just keep bouncing the ball straight up in the air. Except, er, Poom is really fun(??). The catch, your "paddle" consists of an ever-changing grid of blocks. http://www.gotused.com/42/games/poom/ (more…)

Good Morning, And welcome to some new people (you know who you are). More websites that are either so damn silly or so amazingly well done or just made me laugh. The "Obsessive of the Week" winner this week goes to (drum roll and the envelope please...) http://www.10mph.com/ First there was On The Road, hurling across Amerika in a car with Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady at a million words a mile. Jack Kerouac's book inspires a generation to follow suit. Next we have Easy Rider, the ultimate 60's outlaw image,Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson ride across America at 25 frames per second and re-inspire a generation. Now we have 10mph. Two guys quit stodgy corporate jobs, scrounged up all the savings they could, collected credit cards, and stepped - or better yet - scooted forward to follow their biggest dream: to become filmmakers. Josh Caldwell rode a Segway from Seattle to Boston, while his buddy Hunter Weeks directed a film they both shot about the experience and about the moments leading up to this crazy twist on the American road trip. From cubicle farms to the open road, the film chronicles how these guys ultimately changed their lives forever (which is the whole point of road trips). They did what so many of us have always wanted to do - gave it all up for the passion inside. Somehow I don't see a generational paradigm shift with this one (although I do love the scene in the clip that involves a Segway, a rubbish bin and a wet drive way, play it in MEDIUM if you've got the bandwidth).
