I saw this earlier today and thought it was cool, but figured there was no way it wasn't a double, since it was posted in November last year to YouTube. Maybe I was wrong.

Reminds me of dismount and the eternal classic Truck Dismount.

Okay, that was badass.

That song is hilarious in the context; what is it?

This software looks like a lot of fun... almost like The Incredible Machine game.

Kinda reminds me of this. And of playing The Incredible Machine for hours on end back in the day.

It's from the soundtrack for the third Matrix movie. "Neodammerung," I think the track's called.

Note the lack of a stick Uwe Boll repeatedly punching a stick Lowtax in the head.

These guys need to get some Toribash.

This is great. I have had a weakness for small doses of Something Awful's particular brand of juvenile idiot humour ever since I found Lowtax's 'box learning' IRC prank, where he pretends to be a Japanese man called Marioto Luigikawa and discusses aspects of his parenting 'technique'.

I am glad to know that I am among my people here.

Is that R supposed to be an H, StrasbourgSecaucus?

You needed to post this three FPPs earlier, loquacious.

More confirmation that physics is the most painful subject.

SA can suck some most times, but then they produce great stuff like this and I don't know what to think.

Terrific concept. Great execution. Build some prototypes and I'll schedule a field demo with the SecDef.

MIT's digital drawing board takes this one step further.

Wow, it's like Jackass with stickfigures.

That's hilarious. The music totally makes it. Looks like we killed the software site. Anyone know if it's Mac friendly or not? Also, that link is amazing, ChasFile.

That was surprisingly mesmerizing. And those ninjas gots some crazy bad-ass moves.
posted by Nquire at 3:19 PM on October 15, 2006


The music is from Juno Reactor - the track is "Navras", from the album Labyrinth. An album which I wholeheartedly recommend, since it's very much in the same vein yet different enough to not be repetitive.

Sparkletone, sounds like you may be mixing that with the song used in the trailers for the first Matrix movie - which was "The Eyes of Truth (Götterdämmerung Mix)" by Enigma.

And yes, the music is what makes this a lot more enjoyable. :)

Is anybody else confused and intrigued by this exchange?
posted by sklero at 11:16 PM on October 15, 2006


For myself, skiero, I am utterly baffled and unwilling to Google or otherwise investigate. I thought maybe StrasbourgSecaucus meant to post WHYYY... etc., possibly referring to the phatic thread y2karl posted earlier, but accidentally typed an R instead of the H. For this other business, I got nothin'.

That was fun. I must get my hands on that software.
posted by antifuse at 5:42 AM on October 16, 2006


I have no idea why jenovus blurted out "ZA WARUDO", but it's part of the name of a famous and good old Japanese TV show: "Narudo...ZA WARUDO!" ("Now I understand...THE WORLD!")

Since the issue was switching Rs and Hs, I changed "Naruhodo" to "Nahurodo".

Nothing particularly interesting. Sorry.

Okay, jenovus! That's the kind of background information I wasn't going to take time to look up, but it's excellent to know, anyway. Thanks.
