HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE!

Oh Florida…

Watch this Documentary Short on Veda Scott. Like Now. RIGHT NOW!

veda scott

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Veda Scott. Some of my fellow wrestling fans may know her as legal counsel to RD Evans in Ring of Honor (which makes sense as she began training in pro wrestling while in law school), but in essence she’s quite-possibly the best vegan, houndstooth-wearing, intelligent tough-as-nails lady wrestler in the world. Of course, it’s possible that many of you out there have no clue who Veda Scott is, so filmmaker Kenny Johnson aims to help change that. Read the rest of this entry

So Here’s ‘Final Fantasy XV’…as a PSone Game?!?

Final Fantasy XV... As A PlayStation 1 Game

If you’re one of those Final Fantasy fans — like myself — who strongly believed the series peaked with VII and felt that the series had been on a steep decline ever since — personally, IX has been my favorite, and really the only polarizing game in the series since VII has to be XIII; or the blatant pay-to-win rip-off  ‘All The Bravest” on iOS… –then you are going to get a kick out of this.  Freelance animator Mark Jenkins re-imagined the upcoming Final Fantasy XV as a PlayStation 1 game, and the results he chronicled on his Tumblr, are just wonderful. If you can, take yourself back to the mid-to-late 1990’s, and imagine taking that weekly trip to Blockbuster Video or Hollywood Video and you feast your eyes on this wonderful piece of goodness (after the break): Read the rest of this entry

Hack Your Old Tape Decks to Scratch Cassettes Like Records!!

Here we have inventor and audio nerd Jeremy Bell, and he is showcasing his creation, the ScrubBoard, which is a device that allows him to scratch cassette tapes with his bare hands as if he was scratching vinyl records.  In order to make the SrucbBoard, Bell removed the tape head from an ordinary record player and then reattached it using longer cables. He then scratches the signal over some audio tape laid flat on a board, and when he drags the tape head along the tape it plays while moving it back and forth rhythmically, it will make scratch sounds similar to when a DJ actually scratching a vinyl record.

Don’t Be THAT Guy…

This Abandoned TWA Terminal is Alive & Kicking!

Although it’s brethren Terminal 6 was demolished back in late-2011 (rest in peace….), this other “closed” terminal over at the same airport recently took part in an open house! As part of Open House New York, the TWA terminal at JFK Airport in New York City was open to the public, even though the Saarinen-designed terminal has not been in use 2002.  Even so, the Port Authority declared that their are future plans in store to rehabilitate and repurpose the structure, ranging from a hotel, a restaurant, or (the obviously appropriate) aviation museum.
