More from the “Time + Food = Lawl” Department

Yup, more food-based goodness. Someone’s daughter was recently converted to a Zelda fan, thanks to the Wii, and the daughter asked for a Zelda cake. The parents decided to comply, and made this cake below:

And the reference sprite:

I’d say they did a very good job at re-creating Link in the cupcake medium. Very nice stuff.

You can see the rest of the pictures here.

I’m In Ur Deep, Eatin’ Ur Elvz!

I think someone went a little overboard on this one. Someone decided to create a scale replica of the Battle of the Hornburg from J. R. R. Tolkien’s wonderful adaptation of the Red Book of Westmarch… in candy.

Yes, you heard right. They did this all in 100% sugary goods.

This is the zoomed out view. The whole thing was constructed out of cardboard, glue, icing and… well, candy. It clocked in at about 7 feet long by 3 feet deep by 2 feet tall. We used over 500 Gummy Bears as orcs and Uruk-Hai. The Elves, Dwarves and Men were represented by sour patch kids. Most of these were of course corpses.

Brutal Slaughter on the stairs.

Gandalf and company to the rescue.

Overall, that’s what I call an excellent display of super nerd-dom. I give them super-props for deciding to spend their time to create such an awesome creating (even if there is literally no purpose besides just being awesome). It’s just super-cool.

By the way, I stole my title from one of the comments on the original blog.

Wear This to Your Next Business Meeting

Just when you think that fashion accessories can’t possibly become any more far-fetched, something comes out of left field, and shows you what-for. This time it’s the NES Advantage Belt Buckle. For those of you who don’t remember the glory days of the NES, the Advantage was a big-ass controller for the NES that had a 8-direction joystick with two huge buttons for A and B. There were also rapid-fire modes, and a “slow-mo” effect caused by rapidly alternating the pause feature of games.

Behold, the NESAdvantageBuckle in all of it’s 8-bit glory:

Fuck Hackers

I fucking hate hackers. I usually can keep a pretty even composure (at least in my opinion), but this just completely pisses me off. In case you haven’t noticed (or just come and enjoy my blog, and don’t see the main site), East Forums were hacked earlier today.

Now, I’ll admit, the site didn’t get off to the best start in the world, what with the tons of spam bots that signed up every day (up until I improved the CAPTCHA that only allowed two non-legit registration go through), the problems with various mods (mods as in modifications, not moderators. However, few people besides me probably knew of the modification problems), the low amount of registrations, and the meagre amount of posts. I’ll admit EF v2 was no the greatest site in the world, but I kept it going because I enjoyed it, and truly believed that eventually, it would boast a moderate community.

But now, that’s not going to happen, at least for a little bit. First I need to find a new forum software to run. The previous incarnation was run on the last legally free version of Invision Power Board. I personally don’t have the cash to drop for the newest version of IPB or a license for vBulletin, either. So, now I’m going to have to go and figure out what to use for the site now. If you happen to have a suggestion for a good forum software (preferably with a “Front Page News” module, though that’s not a die-hard requirement), please leave me a comment pointing me in that direction.

So yeah, hackers pretty much suck the balls of life. If this site gets hacked, then I’m going to be severely pissed. I already am pissed, but if another of my sites falls to a hacker, then I’ll be even more so. However, I think that, having the old version of IPB , the EF job was an easy hack because of it being a few versions back. Hopefully, Drupal will be more hardy against such attacks. Just in case, though, I’m going to go make a database backup right after I post this entry.


Holy crap. It’s raining. Hard. Like torrents of rain. I went to the movies and when the movie was over, it was pouring down like crazy heavy. Like flash-flood rain heavy. Like two inches on some parts of the road heavy. Like driving 45 miles an hours on the Interstate and you can still barely see 20 feet in front of you heavy.

And the lightning was crazy, too. It was the light-up-the-whole-sky-like-it’s-daytime kind of lightning. And huge thunderclaps to accompany it. It was pretty crazy
