Nothing is real anymore.
Up is down! Black is white! Cats are... well, they're not dogs, but they definitely aren't cats either, apparentlyRead More
When Moones set about brainstorming for a live session music video to promote their latest EP, Ollie Kristian had a genius idea: Record their single "Better Energy" over and over again, but have each member of the band drink four beers each between every take. The result is a multi-angle masterpiece of drunkenness that uses over 10,000 YouTube annotations to allow you total control over the band's blood alcohol level at any given moment of the song. Man, if only actually getting drunk were that easy -- think of the money we'd all save!Read More
While fossil fuels drive the economy, they're not going to last forever, which is why we're looking pretty much everywhere for new sources of energy. Now solar power, wind power, biodiesel fuel, geothermal energy, and many other have been joined by a new source of fuel: Fatbergs, the massive lumps of congealed oil that coagulate and sometimes clog the sewers of London. A British energy company is planning to harvest the bergs and use them to generate electricity. Enough electricity, in fact, to power 39,000 British homes every year.Read More
We said it was coming, and now it's here. BBC 4 Radio has already aired their radio drama of Neil Gaiman's novel Neverwhere. Even better than that, you can listen to the whole thing for free. It's not going to be up forever, though, and I'm sure it'll be for purchase and download at some future date. But you can stream it right now!Read More
For reasons we still don't quite understand, Tim Burton decided to have the Penguin cruise around Gotham City in a giant rubber ducky in Batman Returns. That made about as much sense as what happened yesterday. To promote their new "FUNdation," JackPotJoy.com sailed a 50-foot-tall rubber ducky down the Thames in London, England. Is JackPotJoy.com a thing in America? We wouldn't hate seeing a giant rubber ducky cruising down the Hudson when we leave work today.Read More
Seriously though, it kinda is. We've since a few music videos come out of the London MCM Expo, one with lip syncing, one without. Well here's another without. Check out cosplayers spanning all geek genres looking awesome.Read More
Cutting energy costs by fiddling with streetlights is something that's seen debate in the United Kingdom. Turning them off entirely isn't exactly a great option, of course, but there's little that can be done with the infrastructure as it currently exists beyond flipping them off and on. Westminster City Council is looking to change all that. Over the next four years, they'll be switching their 14,000 streetlights to smart alternatives capable of being controlled by an iPad, saving the council hundreds of thousands a year.Read More
