Kids, back in 1994 in Munich, Germany, a match between Cactus Jack (Mick Foley) and Big Van Vader (Leon White) took place in on March 16th during the WCW European Tour. The match is often regarded as one of the most infamous matches in professional wrestling history; known for its physical violence (which was very limited in WCW at the time), and as the match in which your Uncle Mick Foley lost his right ear.
Later today, PixelJunk 4am will arrive on PlayStation Network after this week’s update. The game will allow any PlayStation 3 gamer who owns a Move controller to turn their living room (or game room, bedroom, basement…garage, whatever; you get the idea) into an interactive, audio-visual, experimental art performance venue. It looks so amazing, that the best way I can explain it would be theorizing that this is what … Continue reading The Inspirational Trippiness of Pixeljunk 4AM
Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, an architecture firm that is very familiar with designing skyscraper projects, just revealed their plans for a pair of towers that will be added to Seoul, South Korea’s skyline. The interesting thing is that both towers would share scaly, dragon-like facades.
And so it begins…
This past Monday, the state of Nevada’s Department of Motor Vehicles issued Google its first license for the hands-free car; you know, the one that drives itself. This was a result of the 2011 legislation in the state that established regulations to allow test-driving of autonomous vehicles. The vehicles utilize intelligent driving software, proximity sensors and GPS data to determine how to traverse from one point to another one. Soon, these vehicles will be tested around Nevada, but with a catch: two people must be in the vehicle — one in the driver’s seat and the other in the passenger seat.

Wait! A Call of Duty game that will have branching paths in the main campaign storyline for the first time in the franchise’s history? AND side-missions to add onto said storyline, taking a sandbox approach? AND the return of Zombie Mode? AND it takes place 13 years in the future in a (prayerfully) neo-Cold War 2025? Oh my goodness; I’m actually LOOKING FORWARD to a new Call of Duty game. Oh boy, oh boy; three-two-one, one-two-three, what the HECK is bothering me?

Penn State University’s Department of Food Science have worked utilizing an electrospinning device to stretch fibrous strands from a solution of biodegradable food-starch. After using the solvent to dissolve the starch into fluid, the long strands are then spun and then can be woven together like textiles—an application that could potentially include the creation of napkins, tissues, paper-like products, and even medical dressings, such as gauze and bandages.

Indeed, on Sunday May 20th, Christmas will be coming early this year.
To the involved and dedicated wrestling fans, or “smart marks” (a.k.a. “smarks”),we felt that a championship match between CM Punk and Daniel Bryan (or “The American Dragon” Bryan Danielson) was destined to happen; it would just be a matter of time. Both wrestlers had made names for themselves on the hard-knock independent wrestling circuit (including stints in Ring of Honor) all over the world. Punk and Bryan both have old-school wrestling backgrounds and styles, making them among the purest of athletes and finest technicians in the business (something that not as common nowadays). Both of their world title reigns were possibly the most dominant and popular in late-2011 to early-2012. Finally, in three short weeks at WWE Over the Limit, they will both meet again, but this time a world title will be on the line.
