…It’s Movie Monday: Oktapodi?


Oktapodi was recently nominated for an Oscar for Animated Short Film, and I can see why!

The story is quick and cute, the animation is fantastic, and it’s got a very unique style that sets it apart from the rest.

…Pop Pillows put the silly back in sleep?

Pop Pillows

Matt Jones’ Pop Pillows pillowcases are designed to make sleeping just a little more fun.

Using cleverly placed prints, they can make you look like an angel or a devil, a bloody head or a axe wielder, or even an ear protection wearing, fingers in the ears sleeper who has barely made it through too many nights of snoring, and needs to send a subtle yet effective sign of trouble.

Unfortunately they probably make better photo opps than actual products, but it’s a cute idea, and could definitely be good for a few laughs before a good night’s sleep.

…Thunder Panda is a papercraft pro?

Thunder Panda Papercraft

If you like the idea of papercraft, but don’t have the skills necessary to pull off some of the more advanced projects, then check out Eric Wiryanta (aka Thunder Panda)’s collection of papercraft toys.

Each of the cute little figures is easy to make, but the results are still rather impressive, so you’ll have an army of pugs, robots and space wanderers adorning your desk before you know it.

…It’s TGI Friday: Bounce Shot?

Bounce Shot

Bounce Shot from Nigoro is a mix of Breakout and Space Invaders, wrapped in a cute and colorful package that begs you to play.

To get started, just move your cursor around the screen with your mouse, and your ship will follow. You can shoot at the Bouncians as they move across and then slowly down the screen, and the goal is to kill them all before they either kill you, or reach the Earth.

To make things interesting, you start with just two shots (so aim carefully), but as you shoot down the bomb filled Blue Bouncians, you can gain up to six additional shots for rapid-fire kills.

The trick to the game though is that shots can bounce off of walls, and your shots are not immune, so they can also bounce back and kill you too, meaning you can’t just go in with guns a blazin’ and hope that they die before you do.

In addition, some of the Bouncians are armored, so you’ll need to utilize the bounce back feature to curve the bullets around and then into your target. Don’t worry though, if Angelina can do it, then so can you.

A boss arrives every ten levels, and the goal is to score as many points as possible, so challenge a friend and see who can bounce better, because sometimes, it’s not just about who has the bigger gun.

Are you ready?

…It’s Things Thursday: Things That Might Kill You?

Things That Might Kill YouLooking for a bit of light summer reading?

Then pick up The Complete Manual of Things That Might Kill You: A Guide to Self-Diagnosis for Hypochondriacs.

Filled with symptoms that you probably have right now (or as I like to call them, warning signs) this book will make sure no runny nose goes unchecked, no upset stomach gets ignored, and no headache is experienced without a clear understanding of their direct link to measles, mumps, and/or the plague.

Plus, there are plenty of cute illustrations for the kiddies.
