Never Leaving Las Vegas

Hooters and the San Remo Hotel have partnered to create The Hooters Hotel and Casino. Can someone please build a Mag-Lev train from LA to Vegas so I can just start sleeping there? The hotel and casino will stay open during the conversion.

Vaporize Your Liquor


Vaporizing is not just for rich pot-heads anymore, now alcoholics can join in the fun as well with AWOL:

"AWOL, an acronym for Alcohol With Out Liquid, is a machine that mixes spirits with pressurized oxygen. A cloudy alcohol vapor is created which can be inhaled. "

At $2995 for the small one these are obviously not meant for home use, but for bar's to use like kegs. Not even technically out yet, New York officials are already trying to get them outlawed.

Gadgetmadness has a link to directions to make your own hoverboard. It can reach a vertical lift of 5 cm, as long as the rider weighs less than 95kg. As you can tell by the picture, it's not exactly like in Back to the Future II, but it still seems pretty cool.

Mary Kate Olsen's "Crack-Man"

Found this on BoingBoing. It's Pac-Man, but your Mary-Kate Olsen and inbetween mentioning what a whore you are, you snort up massive lines of coke while chasing the demon heads of the cast of Full House. It's full of bugs but the slander couldnt be better.
Play it before they are sued into oblivion.

Keg Wrap

2 frat brothers from Cleveland are saving the world....from warm beer! They have invented an electric blanket that wraps around a keg of beer and chills it anywhere you can plug it in. As soon as these hit the market I'm picking one up, the keg under my bed keeps getting warm by 10am.

Macintosh Garden

Do you ever miss playing classic mac games like Lemmings, Prince of Persia, or Monkey Island? Then you should check out The Macintosh Garden. Home to tons of macintosh abandonware games.

"Welcome to the Macintosh Garden, a site devoted to preserving Macintosh abandonware games.

Abandonware is commercial software that has been discontinued by the publisher and are not sold or supported anymore. If you are the publisher of a certain game on this site, and wish that it is removed, please email me and I will remove the game.

The interest for abandonware is increasing everyday. One reason is that the emulators keep getting better and there are quite a few great emulators that runs the MacOS. Another reason is that people realize that all these new "cool" 3D games already have been made. And usually the original is more fun to play. :)"

It's been up for a few years and just keeps getting bigger, and you have to love the great Mac OS 7.5.3 interface for the website.

Rick James is Dead Biatch


Superfreak Rick James is dead at age 56. No autopsy has yet been performed but his publicist is claiming natural causes. WHAT?!@# Decades of drug abuse, women abuse (including burning a woman's genitals with a crack pipe), and living the life of a superfreak is hardley natural. Dave Chappelle has yet to comment.

Now come here and show Charlie Murphy your titties!

Creep Video Remix


BoingBoing.net led me to this very cool flash video for an acoustic version of Radiohead's Creep. The video is dark and, well creepy. The animation is excellent and very professional, but still intriguing.

Dot Mac Adds Alias's


Apple has added alias's to .Mac email! Anyone with a .Mac account can create a temporary alias. Want to purchase from an online store but you know they will send you tons of spam? Make an alias and cancel it when you are all done. No mention of any limit's on alias' or how long they will last, but I already made 5 alias's on my account without a hitch. I can now be reached by my new .mac alias stevespancreas@mac.com.

Apple Cracks FairPlay For You

The german news site MacNews.de is reporting a way to use iMovie to strip the FairPlay DRM from protected iTunes Music Store songs. Since I dont read german, and am too lazy for Babelfish, here's a quote from MacNN:

"Apple's iMovie can be used to strip the FairPlay digital rights management protection (DRM) on iTunes songs, according to a report by German news site Macnews.de. The site reports that Apple's own video tool can be used to create unprotected song files that be played on any computer without recompression, circumventing iTunes' DRM protection. iMovie users can use the "Share" feature of iMovie to export any imported (protected) song from the iTunes Music Store. The exported songs can either be stored in the un-protected AAC file format (used by Apple at the iTMS) or in the raw WAV file format; both of these formats are supported by iTunes."

Will Apple sue themselves for DMCA violations??

American Dad Pilot

Seth MacFarlane (creator of the Family Guy) has announced his new show American Dad. According to MilkandCookies.com:

"American Dad from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, is the animated story of Stan Smith (MacFarlane), who works for the CIA and is constantly on the alert for terrorist activity.

Stan will go to extremes to protect his beloved America from harm as evidenced by the terror-alert color code on his fridge, and his frequent knee-jerk reaction of shooting holes in the toaster whenever the toast pops up."

Although there is nothing on the site yet, there is a downloadable pilot that is unfortunately in Windows media.
