Awesome Lego Creations of H.Y. Leung

Lego 8-Bit Warp Pipe Planter
This Lego Pipe Planter by H.Y. Leung is pretty cool, it’s made to look just like a pipe from Super Mario Brothers and the blockiness of the Lego makes it look that little bit more 8-Bit.

Also check out this Lego pencil, by the looks of things it’s actually a mechanical pencil and you can write with it!

Lego #2 HB Pencil

He’s also Made a Lego paper Lantern which is semi opaque and lets light through.

Game of Rogues

Movie T-Shirt - Game of Rogues - RIPT Apparel

This is today’s T-Shirt over on Ript Apparel, BatMan Sitting on a Throne made up of artefacts of his fallen foes. I’m not sure I like the tagline “Game of Rogues” but I guess it works. The original Image is by Ninja Ink.

 

AVENGERS Fantasy Re-design

What if you took the avengers and sent them back into a fantasy universe? Maybe they would look something like DeviantArt user DenisM79‘s sketches?

It’s worth looking through his gallery as he has also done Rockabilly redesigns of Cat Woman and Bat Man.

And if that’s not cool enough for you how about these slightly more stylized fantasy Avengers by Another Deviant Art User theDURRRRIAN

 

Nexus 7 Not an iPad Killer But It’s not Meant to Be

Right now people are probably composing millions of blog posts singing the praises of or deriding the Google Nexus 7 that was announced yesterday. Here is a summary of what you are likely to read:

Blah blah blah blah iPad, Blah Blah Blah Nexus 7 Blah Blah Blah Blah competition heating up Blah Blah Blah,  Blah Blah Blah Google Blah Blah Apple Blah Blah Mountain View, Blah Blah Cupertino Blah Blah Blah 7 Inches, Blah Blah Blah Steve Jobs said it’s too small. Blah Blah Blah Could this be an iPad Killer? Blah Blah Blah I’m a pundit I know what I’m talking about, Blah Blah Blah probably not an iPad Killer.

The thing is if you looks at the specs for the Nexus 7 there is no way it’s aimed at the iPad, sure it might eat into it’s market a little, but compare there is no way that a $199 device is going to compete with a $399 device, for one thing the iPad 3 is resolutionary, whatever that means (I really wish Apple would hire someone who spoke English).

People are making the wrong comparison though, the Nexus 7 is priced exactly like the Kindle Fire, it even comes with a gift certificate for Google Play store that is pretty much exactly what Amazon introduced to raise flagging Kindle Fire Sales  earlier this month. Just look:

It’s practically an upgrade to the Kindle Fire at the same price point! I’m not saying that it’s not going to eat into iPad sales, but that’s not what the intention is, Google want a device that people will use to consume it’s content, they sell books, movies, games and other crap, the Nexus 7 allows you to give Google money to view the content they sell, plus if you have big pockets it might just fit in there which the iPad doesn’t.

Black Milk Pantone “Hex Colour Leggings” Are Actually Available!

I can’t remember how long ago I blogged about Black Milk’s Pantone Leggings. Anyway they are available to buy now. This marks the first time I’ve ever seen Black Milk sell anything I’ve blogged about that they make…

You can get them on the Black Milk Shop for $75 Australian Dollars (About 50 quid) + Shipping and Handling which cost’s wither $12.50 AUS or $37.29 AUS depending on how you want them shipped.

Awesome Quotes About Death From Reddit

I was browsing the comments to a random Reddit post and came across these two gems:

[–]awesomeideas 295 points  ago*

In fact, death itself was invented in 1762 by the Guild of Accountants which wanted to branch out its actuarial division.

[–]Nymaz 204 points  ago

Sure that’s what they claim. The truth is they were sick of people saying “Nothing is certain but taxes” and invented death to deflect some of the grumbling.

One is a response to the other, but as people quickly pointed out they are both very Douglas Adams/Terry Pratchet. As Reddit threads seem to fade away into obscurity, and I guess these will be quoted elsewhere I wanted to do my part to preserve what I think is the origin of these two quotes.

For all I know they were stolen from somewhere else, but on the odd chance they are original…
