Camouflaged and Walking octopuses
Octopus marginatus and Octopus (Abdopus) aculeatus, that walk along the seafloor using two alternating arms and apparently use the remaining six arms for camouflage.

[WMP streaming video; Real Player stream here.
] At first, this music video from The Bees
[Flash site] seems like a quick, harmless Friday diversion. Not for me, though. For me, it’s rapidly becoming a truly painful earworm, and worse: is there such a thing as an “eyeworm?”

The greatest sexual moments in video game history.
From Rampage to the cheapest japanese NES games to Mortal Kombat and beyond, someone out there took the energy better spent on... anything else to create a list of sexuality in societys black sheep: Video games. Does not hold preference to any sexual preference

Meet Jakob Lodwick of Blumpy.org.
You may be familiar
with him because of sites like this
Blumpy.org i s a bit of a step up, however, featuring some pretty nifty skits and a great video-journal
He has also made a video
, Baltimore's soon-to-be legendary (any day now) basement rock god, whose site also has a huge stash
of excellent b-side material and another video
not the biggest sites, so go easy on'em and be patient.

Remember that film which spread like wildfire across the net in
'98 nicknamed "Bad Day at the Office". It showed an angry office worker bashing his computer? Well the computer is back, and he ain't happy

is perhaps the greatest actor I've ever seen perform, and he does it all without dialogue. Click on "videos" (or "filmpjes"
). Jim Henson would be proud.

horns a plenty
Haven't seen this here recently, so here's a link to a guy who performs some classics with nothing but horns strapped to his jumpsuit.

Grandfather of the personal blog freaks out
at age 30, after spending 11 years writing about the most i
of his life. From the beginning
, he was always brutally honest in a time long before it became so commonplace, before any of us knew where this internet business would take us. Naturally he recorded said freakout on video for the world to see, and more or less shut down
site. Can we take this kind of display at face value? Is it a bad case of someone substituting net life for the real thing? Is it all just effete whining? Or is this a genuine case of two loves colliding, and a man forced to make a difficult choice?

It's time for some Friday Flash Fun! (Well sort of, since even though this video was probably created in Flash, it's delivered in crap-tacular streaming format) Anyway, everyone's favorite white-boy (or "guero"
) hip-hop superstar is back in action with a new video [rm
] for his forthcoming album
. The video was created by Flash maestro Mumbleboy
, and for those that found Beck's last outing
a little vanilla for their tastes, it signals a welcome return to the man's Chunky Monkey

Man dances his way around the world
[wmv - 36MB] getting jiggy on a mountaintop, busting moves in an impenetrable forest, dodging Hanoi motorcyclists with his finely tuned moves, and, well, I wouldn't want to give anymore away. It's the feel good movie of the season.

- based on the classic text game of the same name
- was the first game ever to contain an easter egg.
It seems laughably primitive these days, but when it first hit shelves, Adventure was a programming masterpiece. The text version
of Adventure (by Willie Crowther and Don Woods) required hundreds of KB and a mainframe computer to operate, so much that Atari brass told Warren Robinett
not to even bother with a 2600 version.
He did anyway, and the results are near legendary. The 2600 version of Adventure went on to sell over a million copies at $25 a pop. For his effort Robinett recieved absolutely nothing beyond his $22,000/year salary.
the 2600 Adventure. (Flash) If you're one of those who requires some eye candy, why not download the Quake 3 Adventure Map
