Wagons And Okies And Zombies...Oh My!



I'm sure everyone has heard of, and played, one of the original hit computer games Oregon Trail.

But did you ever wish the game had more action, more suspense, and random encounters with zombies?

If you answered yes then your dreams have come true, thanks to game company The Men Who Wear Many Hats and their new game Organ Trail.

It's a lot like Oregon Trail, except you have to make difficult decisions like 'should I kill an infected party member?' and 'should I shoot the zombie and risk other zombies hearing the shot?'

It's perfect for those who like a lot of reading, and old timey graphics, with their video gaming experience.

Download And Play Chex Quest 1-3 For Free



Good news everyone! Another gaming relic from your childhood is available to play for free, thanks to those clever marketers who know that letting a game like Chex Quest make the rounds again gives you an opportunity to once again advertise your product.

The product in question is Chex cereal, and since it's not a detestable product I'm sure many who remember the silly advertising games from the 1990s will appreciate being able to play them all again, if only for the sake of nostalgia.

Accents Of The World With Dan Considine


(YouTube Link)

This googly eyed gentleman is named Dan Considine, and he'd like to take you on a tour of accents from across the globe, starting with the Land of Blarney and ending in the good ol' U.S. of A.

I see lots of voice over work in this guy's future, and he seems like he'd be a lot of fun at a party after he's feeling good from a few shots of rotgut, but a little bit of any one accent goes a long way. Don't overdo it Dan!

Is Star Wars Land Coming To Disneyland Paris?



Aside from being located in one of the most fabulous cities in the world, Disneyland Paris has a lot of other features which make a native Southern Californian like myself very jealous indeed-their Indiana Jones ride has a loop, an adult worthy rollercoaster based on Finding Nemo, and now the proposed addition of a Star Wars themed section of the park.

Star Wars Land is rumored to be coming to Disneyland Paris sometime in 2015, which means Disney's crew of Imagineers are probably hard at work designing and testing the features of this exciting new section of the park.

I hope they include lots of Wookiees and Ewoks, and leave the JarJars on the drawing board.

Trailer For Upcoming Sci Fi Movie- "Shuffle"


(YouTube Link)

This is a trailer for an upcoming sci-fi movie called Shuffle, and what the movie lacks in A-list talent and budget it more than makes up for in originality and compelling storyline.

With a mind-bending plot about a man who wakes up every morning at a different point in his own life, and the addition of a creepy little kid who speaks in a cryptic manner and seems to know what's going on, watching it promises to be a rollercoaster ride for your brain.

Dark And Creepy Digital Art By Adam Hosmer



There's s0mething unnerving about the understated horror lurking behind Adam Hosmer's digital artworks.

Perhaps it's the way these dark figures blend in with the photograph, or maybe it's the frayed and unraveling nature of his subjects. Either way, Adam's works give me the creeps!

Check out more of Adam's snapshots from the darkside at the links below, but only if you can handle seeing people fall apart right before your eyes.

This Guy Really Wants To Be In A Sci Fi Movie


(YouTube Link)

Jake Fleisher wants to throw his acting hat in the ring and land a role in a Hollywood movie, preferably a sci-fi flick that is worthy of his considerable thespian talents.

Watch him work his magic on this audition tape, which demonstrates why he shouldn't rule out acting in a direct-to-TV movie made for the Syfy channel. Perhaps Sharktopus 3 is holding auditions for a leading man?

DIY Star Trek Phaser Is Really Good At Popping Balloons


(YouTube Link)

Some crafty DIYer made this awesome Star Trek inspired phaser in his garage, or perhaps he attached a carefully tweaked laser pointer to a toy phaser.

Regardless of how it came into existence  it pops balloons without burning a hole in the wall, it's capable of causing massive eye damage and makes a really cool noise.

And I guarantee you'll be looking for this guy and his phaser thingy when the balloon armies begin taking over the Earth. Set phasers to pew-pew-pop!

Eggless Chicken Born In Sri Lanka



This little guy is too cool for a shell, and decided to skip all that egg nonsense and hatch the old fashioned way-inside his mother after a 21 day incubation period.

He didn't have to worry about becoming an omelette, or being used in a high school Biology class as baby training, and since his birth took his mother's life he's taken over the responsibility of lording over his siblings with an iron beak.

Look for him to become the ruler of all Sri Lankan chickens within the next year, and vote Stripey if you know what's good for you!

Descriptive Camera Turns Pictures Into Text



This camera doesn't want to simply duplicate whatever you see through the viewfinder, it would rather describe the whole scene to you via text.

Created by Matt Richardson to explore the possibility of adding metadata to digital photos, it requires a team to analyze each photo, who then sends the description back via text 3 to 6 minutes later.

It's safe to say that the descriptive camera won't be replacing traditional photographic equipment anytime soon, but it does have the distinction of being the strangest, and arguably the most useless, bit of tech I've seen in quite some time.

Hit the link if you want to find out more about the ideas behind this conceptual gadget, and how the whole process really works.

Cthulhu Pays A Visit To Countdown


(YouTube Link)

Popular British game show Countdown gets a whole lot more intense when the letters spell out the name of that most famous of Great Old Ones-Cthulhu!

This bloody animated short was made by Peephole Circus, and it's as square as they come. Don't watch if animated blood, and tentacles, make you squeamish.

Animated Music Video For The Shins "The Rifle's Spiral"


(YouTube Link)

This amazing new animated music video for The Shins song The Rifle's Spiral is full of stop motion goodness and a style inspired in part by the art of Edward Gorey.

It was created by Jamie Caliri, who is perhaps best known for the animated end title sequence he created for Lemony Snicket's film A Series Of Unfortunate Events.

It's a feast for the senses, with lots to look at and a song that really rocks!

Fun Animal Friendly Rocking Chair



This cleverly designed rocking chair has a space underneath the seat so your furry friend can stay close to you without cramping your style.

It was created by architect Paul Kweton, who is currently looking for a way to get his chair on the mass market.

The gentle rocking motion will either relax your pet, or freak them out and make them want to avoid the chair at all cost.

But if they're okay with the whole thing then chances are they're going to love sitting there, even when your not sitting in the chair.

Ukranian Man Had Compulsive Graffiti Syndrome



A Ukranian man named Mitasov lived here, a man who suffers from a hyper-obsessive personality disorder which causes him to compulsively cover every surface in his house with layers of  inscriptions.

He can't help but etch his bizarre graffiti into everything-the fridge, walls, piano, doors, even the ceilings are covered by Mitasov's strange inscriptions.

However, some of his inscriptions are not so strange, like his sadly inspiring street art that can still be seen in Ukraine-"Happiness! I'm waiting for you here!"

Skywalking Is Not As Fun As It Sounds


(YouTube Link)

Why does something called Skywalking have nothing to do with Luke or Leia, or Star Wars for that matter? Because it's dumb, that's why. Skywalking is not the same as Planking, so don't even go there kiddies.

But that doesn't stop "daredevils" from risking their lives for attention and internet acclaim by Skywalking from such great heights that I tremble at the thought of looking down from way up there.

Not that I have a phobia or anything, it just isn't natural for people to be up that high without a net or a parachute!

Custom Arcade Cabinet That Plays Super Nintendo Cartridges



Well, I think the title pretty much sums this article up-this custom made arcade style cabinet plays any and all of your Super Nintendo cartridges like never before.

Arcade style SNES? Yes please! One player only gameplay? Noooooooo! Now I can't play Mortal Kombat, Clay Fighter or any of my favorite fighting games properly!

It was built by Reddit contributor Echoobrain, who will be posting step-by-step photos of the process shortly.

It looks like fun, but these console cabinets are bound to get better from here, right? Like maybe a four player cabinet? *wink*

3D Rage Faces--Forever Alone Statue



Designed to proudly share your Forever Alone status with the world, this Rage Faces inspired statue was first 3d printed then cast in an extremely limited run, so the creators Matt Scone and Sanden Henning could get a sense of what producing their own toy would cost.

Hopefully Matt and Sanden will consider casting another batch since the Forever Alone statue sold out so quickly, or maybe they'll continue the Rage Faces series so we can collect 'em all!

Trailer For An Amazing Looking Documentary- Samsara


(YouTube Link)

From the makers of Baraka comes a gorgeous looking documentary called Samsara, which takes you on a tour of some of the world's wildest places, and explores "the links between humanity and the rest of nature".

Director Ron Fricke shot Samsara on 70mm film, so it will look extra beautiful on the big screen when it premieres August 24th (hopefully) at a theater near you.

Ten Alien Species That Became Jedi Knights



Human Jedis are a dime a dozen, but Force sensitivity isn't limited to any particular race, species or planet, so all kinds of wild and wooly beings had their chance to wield a lightsaber.

i09 has put together a fun list of 10 aliens that represented their species and became one with the Force, any one of which would have made a great addition to the Star Wars movies.

Wookiee Jedi wielding a wooden lightsaber for the win!

Wire Mesh Sculptures By Shi Jindian



These wire mesh works by Chinese artist Shi Jindian may look like the wireframe view of a 3d object, or some sort of digital art projection, but these fantastically fine sculptures are the real deal, and they're constructed inch by inch from woven mesh.

Here's more on the process:
Shi Jindian process involves wrapping the wires around every square inch of the object and then carefully removing or destroying the object, leaving only its wire mesh skeleton

It's amazing how much detail Shi put into each piece, and the look of each object must change a bit depending on the direction the viewer is facing. Nicely wired indeed!

This Hamster Isn't Big On Sharing


(YouTube Link)

Can you blame this hamster for not wanting to share his snack with that greedy cat? If the tables were turned it wouldn't even occur to the cat to share his food with the little guy, so I can see why the hamster decided to pack it in and run.

What I don't understand is how he can let a cat get that close to him when their two species have been at war for centuries. Maybe the peace talks are working after all!

Trailer For Oddball Video Game Octodad: Dadliest Catch


(YouTube Link)

The indie game Octodad slipped under the radar for all but the most rabid gamers, but the premise sounds like pure gold-you are an octopus disguised as a human husband and father, who moves about like a....well, like an octopus wearing a suit and tie.

If that doesn't sound ridiculous enough, how about the fact that you somehow fathered human children in the game, and the goal of the original game is to build a mannequin so you can avoid having dinner with your wife!

A new, less buggy version is in the works, entitled Octodad: Dadliest Catch and it looks like a ridiculously good time, but check out the trailer and judge for yourself whether you'll be bringing Octodad 2 home when it comes out.

A Mummy Made From McDonald's Burgers



Artist BenEverywhere decided to drop $200 on McDonald's hamburgers in order to make this mummy/skeleton monstrosity.

Why would he do such a thing, you may ask? Because he wants to prove that McDonald's no longer makes food, they make a medium for morbid sculptures.

He combined the burgers with a little bit of resin to show the world that McDonald's food is so full of preservatives that it will literally last forever.

Well, I guess I'm adding a trip to McDonald's to my will, who needs embalming fluid when you've got the Big Mac?!

15 TV Shows Based On Comic Books That Didn't Make The Cut



Our friends at Comics Alliance have put together a list of TV shows based on comic books that never made it on the air, a sad memorial to what could have been and a reminder of why some stories simply won't work as live action shows.

Titles like The Amazing Screw-On Head, based on Mike Mignola's one-shot comic about a Civil War era robotic secret agent, and Locke & Key, the ghostly horror series fans have embraced but the networks have not, would have been great fun to watch, but we're left with only a pilot episode for each to whet our appetites.

Other titles, like Nick Fury Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D. starring David Hasselhoff, and the Smallville spinoff Aquaman Mercury Reef, are probably better off in the discard pile instead of cluttering up the small screen.

Take a look for yourself at this fascinating list of unwanted shows, some entries complete with video clip, and see what you don't have to look forward to watching on television.
