Friday Links for 8/4/06

They return!


A Message from Samuel L. Jackson
You can make Sam Jackson yell at your friend, insult his personal looks/job, and demand he go see Snakes On a Plane in his beat-up car…as a VOICEMAIL. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself. And yes, that actually IS Sam Jackson, and it actually IS part of the official marketing for “Snakes On a Plane.” Here’s the one I sent to my old friend Jason.

Windows Vista Speech Recognition
Microsoft blames “ambient noise” for the failure of their Voice Recognition software during a live demonstration. This video would be a lot better if it weren’t for the “reporter” covering the piece.

The Vader Sessions
James Earl Jones’ lines from other films inserted into scenes from “Star Wars.” Simple premise, brilliant execution. I particularly love the scene in the conference room.

BxB Hulk!
If I am to die suddenly, I want someone to arrange it so that this guy shows up and does that entrance at my funeral. Then just sits down and says nothing the rest of the ceremony as if nothing happened.

Magnum Tokyo’s MUGA DANCE!
You think the absurdity has stopped until M2K rides scooters to the ring.

The Bummper B3ta Book of Sick Jokes
The website advertising a book of sick jokes submitted by users put out by the fine folks at b3ta. Delicious in its subtlety.


Tighten up the graphics?
Anybody who has seen the awful commercial for video game design on G4 will appreciate this one. Actually, it’s the last line of this that totally makes it.

Zidane owns Castro
I don’t know why I never noticed him in the original video of Castro taking his tumble.

Be Cool About Fire Safety
If this doesn’t bring up some nostalgia, then…well, idunno. Maybe I’m just too old.

The Ultimate Suffering
“I think no man in a century will suffer as GREATLY as you will!”

Notepad Invaders
GAME – Fun times!

    SOAP just moves ever higher and higher. It’s gone from “must-see movie” to “movie of the year” to “movie event of our lifetimes” to “life-changing event” and is closing in on “the pinnacle of all human acheivement.”

      Pinnacle of all human achievement, indeed. It’s going to make The Renaissance look like the annual Nathan’s Hot-Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island.

        I expect humanity to slip into a new Dark Age after the release of this. For years we shall strive, never able to approach the perfection that is Snakes on a Plane, and then a great sadness will overtake us all. Nothing will have meaning, for nothing else is Snakes on a Plane. And all endeavor shall be meaningless. Slowly the learning of millenia will be forgotten, and all that humanity shall have are hazy memories of a man who not a man and yet not wholly a god, fighting off evil. On a plane.

        It won’t be a half-buried Statue of Liberty that Charlton Heston finds that makes him realize we “blew it all up,” it’ll be a statue of Sam Jackson fighting snakes.

        Jack Bauer fought evil on a plane first.

        But Harrison Ford fought evil on a plane before Jack Bauer!
