This Week 13 – January 10th, 2010

The web gets a little quieter over the holidays so there wasn’t quite enough to justify a This Week post (especially as the holiday period also meant I spent less time on the internet finding things). Everything is back in full force now though and I have a healthy collection of links to share:


I knew that Disney liked to recycle a lot of their older stuff (from things like this collection of images), but this video highlights just to what extent:

(via Cracked)


Gizmodo has a fantastic article about how space battles might realistically work. (via Jim Rossingol Twitter)


A comparison of different bodies in space, starting with the moon and moving up to the largest known sun.  We’re pretty damn tiny:

(via Unreasonable Faith)


College Humour has a version of Alanis Morrisette’s “Ironic” that has been corrected to include things that are actually ironic, and not what Alanis apparently thinks the word means. (via John Walker Twitter)


Apparently we pay very little attention to details, which extends to anything about the people we’re talking to. In this experiment a person is replaced mid-conversation and most people never noticed:

(via BoingBoing)


Roger Ebert collects together quotes from a time when movie stars didn’t just give safe responses all the time.


Somebody took a Star Trek clip, stripped out all the dialogue and replaced it with new comments, all lip-synced to create a bizarre stream of nonsense (with some NSFW language):


Awkward Family Photos has a photo from 1890 where they do something quirky, and as somebody says in the comments, “You can sooo tell who’s idea this pose was…”.


In Saints Row 2 your character occasionally sings along to the songs on the radio, and because you can create you own characters there are six different voice samples. Somebody has taken all six voices singing Take On Me and put them together into one awful group performance:

And speaking of Take On Me, somebody replaced the lyrics with a literal take on what happens in the music video, which is pretty funny. I’ve always liked that music video and it’s probably one of the more memorable ones ever made.  If memory serves it was this video that spawned a wave of literal music videos.


Film of the last three weeks: 2001: A Space Odyssey

TV of the last three weeks: Doctor Who (The End of Time) – The story was a bit all over the place and there were some bits that were silly or made no sense, but Bernard Cribbins was fantastic and David Tennant had some great moments too.

Game of the last three weeks: Batman: Arkham Asylum
