Happy Halloween

  • Jeff: Batman.
  • Abed: Yeah.
  • Jeff: Are you staying for the party?
  • Abed: If I stay, there can be no party. I must be out there in the night, staying vigilant. Wherever a party needs to be saved, I’m there. Wherever there are masks, wherever there’s tomfoolery and joy, I’m there. But sometimes I’m not ’cause I’m out in the night, staying vigilant. Watching. Lurking. Running. Jumping. Hurtling. Sleeping. No, I can’t sleep. You sleep. I’m awake. I don’t sleep. I don’t blink. Am I bird? No. I’m a bat. I am Batman. Or am I? Yes, I am Batman. [Applies lip balm.] Happy Halloween.

Community: Introduction to Statistics

Community has been a surprisingly funny addition to NBC’s Thursday night sitcom line-up. And Danny Pudi keeps stealing the show.

Welcome to the Microsoft Store

Microsoft is completely out of ideas. I think this is the saddest Microsoft video I’ve ever seen. And that includes this one.

My Loma Prieta Story

I was at home in Santa Rosa, about 100 miles from the epicenter, and didn’t feel a thing. :(

Canabalt Scoreboard

Canabalt is the kind of game that drives me nuts but these high scores are amazing. Makes me wonder how many minutes of gameplay these distances equate to.

Blowing Up the Moon

When this Mr. Show sketch aired on HBO about a decade ago, bombing the moon was just a beautiful dream. Tomorrow, it’ll be science fact.

“We have the technology, the time is now, science can wait no longer, children are our future. America can, should, must and will blow up the moon.”

Seriously though, the resulting crater will only be about a third the size of a football field and is likely to show definitive proof of water on the moon. :)
