…Threadcakes has picked winners?

Threadcakes Winner

Threadcakes definitely upped the bar this year, as the winner’s cakes look like spot on (and delicious) reproductions of their printed counterparts.

Jennifer Flynn took home the Grand Prize with her 3D rendition of Noah Express, while Angel Adkins’ ‘Bird Migration’ took 2nd, and Lauren Babis’ interpretation of ‘The Red’ captured 3rd.

The rest of the cakes are equally impressive, so be sure to browse through the gallery and see what the fuss was all about.

…Popdeck is great for custom skateboards?

Popdeck

Popdeck is “the first design community just for skateboarders”.

Like Threadless, Popdeck lets designers upload their designs to the site, and then users can vote on them to select the winners. Unlike Threadless, winning designs end up becoming limited edition skateboard decks that probably aren’t as comfortable to wear as a t-shirt would be.

Each deck is hand numbered, and if you’re going to buy a board anyways, I don’t see why you wouldn’t want one that looks good and isn’t owned by every kid on the block.

…Twitter is at war?

Color Wars 2008

The 2008 Twitter Color Wars has basically taken over the Twitter world recently, and is an interesting adaptation of a technology that, besides things like Color Wars and StrawPoll that people have created, serves no purpose. (Ok, so you can find out someone’s status, but really, where’s the fun in that?)

Twitter Color Wars is basically a popularity contest where the Twitterati rally around a single color and show their support by taking their profile picture in team colors.

    Anyone can play. To join a team: log on to twitter, search for the team of your choice, then follow that team.

The War goes well beyond just a popularity contest though, as games are going to pit teams against each other to compete for total domination.

Game #1 is a round of Bad Ass RoShamBo.

To play, members took a picture of themselves in their team colors throwing their throw of choice, and then uploaded that picture to Flickr with the appropriate tags. Then, a bracket style RoShamBo tournament will be held tonight with a best of three RSB match determining the winner.

I love the fact that this game evolved out of nothing and turned into a something that everyone wants to be involved in. It’s a fun adaptation of a technology that people continue to find uses for, and there’s a lot of potential for additional games.

Which side are you on?

Edit: It looks like zefrank is behind it all. Check out the Colorwar story here.

…It’s Movie Monday: My Name Is Lisa?

“My Name is Lisa” is a short film about the Alzheimer’s Disease.

It’s also the winner of Best Short Film in the 2007 YouTube awards, and for good reason. It’s a powerful and emotional (and sad) short about a daughter’s struggle to deal with her mother’s Alzheimer’s, and gives you a glimpse into the lives of those that live with conditions that most of us can’t even imagine.

…It’s TGI Friday: Peep Jousting?

Peep Jousting

Easter comes early this year, which means just one thing: Early Peep Jousting!

To Peep Joust, simply stick two Peeps in the microwave on a plate facing each other with a toothpick “lance” stuck to the side of each one (lick it to stick it), and set the timer to around forty seconds.

Then, place your bets, press Go, and let the magic begin.

The winner is the Peep that can last the longest without getting popped, and it’s sure to be a fun time for all involved.

And for the true Peep fans, here’s some fun Peep facts:
