Phat CGI – My mom thinks he looks like Liam Neeson.

Bad Parents – some kid gives his mom crap while playing XBox Live. Why do they put up with it? If he were my son, I’d thrown his XBox out the window. Still, funny & disturbing. Not work safe (language).

Flash Game: Brush Teeth – dude’s got some rank teeth, yo. Yo DJ, spin that mouse!

Re-touchJD had showed a site similiar to this in the past. Personally, I like her hair natural vs. pure-blonde. Her majesty was referencing a grrl she knew on LiveJournal that had posted pictures of herself for years that were photo-retouched, and one day posted the real one next to the retouched one. I used to think that the reason video-conferencing or even audio would never catch on in a lot of the online social chat avenues is because the level of anonymity that text chat brings. I think in another 5 years, we’ll be at the point where visual & audio changes like this will be ubiquitious enough, that you’ll once again be able to be anonymous in real-time video & audio. Question reality!

Soccer Practice: Go Team Gay – I love when they beat the crap out of the cheerleaders. Probably not work safe.

Flash Game: Blazing Angels
– got a great old-skool, 8bit feel.

You see an armored Microsoft, what do you do?

That’ll be a close one. Apparently, Microsoft is weilding a battle axe, war style, with 2 hands. This doubles its damage, and probably adds an additional attack per round.

Additionally, Microsoft appears to be of size huge, thus occupying 2 squares. This’ll make him hard to flank.

However, it appears Macromedia has the initiative for the round given the stance; in fact, Macromedia is already attacking. Apparently, that small sword will only add to the initiative, and maybe even act as a stiletto, allowing a precise strike through Microsoft’s hard armor. Plate Armor usually gives a 10 to armor, rendering them immune to low level characters. However, if Macromedia can take the initiative so quickly in such heavy armor, they are obviously not low level.

Even more astounding is Adobe’s stance; either he’s casting Smite Evil, which is a pretty cool and high level Paladin spell, OR he’s putting some sort of bless on the party, thus allowing Macromedia and he further potential to own in this ecounter.

It’ll be quite interesting to see if Macromedia’s small, but precise damage, with Adobe’s guiding strategic commands from above, can hope to match this armored, axe weilding, armored behemoth.

Stick and move… stick and move!
