The Rickrolling phenomenon has reached epic status on the web, so in response we at EPIC-FU have declared the entire month of April as International Rickrolling Month. There's nothing like the feeling of rickrolling someone for the very first time, and the second, and third, and so on.
ThinkGeek is finally taking preorders for the groundbreaking Wii game Super Pii Pii Brothers, featuring a bundled Wii remote strap-on peripheral. Finally, a game that really captures the spirit of the Wii system. What do you say guys... Pii Pii party at EPIC-FU HQ?
From the product page:
According to the Japanese text on the box "Super Pii Pii Brothers promotes good bathroom skills and allows women to experience for the first time the pleasure of urinating while standing."
WARNING: Not appropriate for younger viewers!
Looks like Blizzard is trying to take advantage of all the Guitar Hero/Rock Band success with the upcoming "Bard" character class. On paper it sounds great, but will my Xbox 360 guitar be compatible or will I have to buy another plastic guitar peripheral???
From the WoW website:
Armed with a trusty axe, killer riffs, and a ton of attitude, the guitar-wielding bard is the second hero class to be introduced in the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King expansion for World of Warcraft. The bard excels both as a solo performer and as part of a solid group lineup, able to front in a number of roles as varied as his musical repertoire.
Now here is something I can get behind! How many times have you forgotten a birthday and just wished your Gmail account had a feature like this? With Gmail's Custom Time you can send that email back in time and it'll appear in your recipient's inbox in the correct chronological order. You can even mark it as "read" so now you have them thinking they're going crazy! Brilliant. No more awkward phone calls insisting that your email must have gotten lost -- now you can prove it. Yes, it's not right. But sometimes that's the cost of a saved black eye. Plus, think about how many first-come/first-served beta invites you can get! :)
BTW, does anyone remember how AOL had a sorta-similar feature back in the day? You could send an email and check if it had been read, and if it hadn't you could cancel it. It wasn't time travel, but it was actually a pretty cool feature.
Check out the new creation from the peeps at Aviary. It's called Dodo and it's a "new [web] tool which will allow you to age and de-age people, places and things from any browser with Flash 9 enabled." It actually looks pretty damn cool. You can sign up on their site to beta test the sucker.
I guess the pixel calibration ratio is in direct proportion to [insert clever yet something something here... I can't think straight right now...oh God help me, it's 4am and I'm still up...]
Are you guys ready for a ride? Because today just feels like it will be filled with many... but that's just a hunch.
The guys over at Barely Political do it again. Oh John, you prankster. I don't blame Hillary for looking grossed out. :)
Props go out to Michael Stevens for mixing this one up.
Let me give you a piece of advice. Never mess with a man's computer. Unless it's a harmless prank like this one for inverting the colors on any Mac OS X machine. Use this keystroke combination:
Go ahead and try it. Use the same keystroke to go back to normal. Like every other prank, the set up is most important. So before you start control-opt-command-eighting all of your friends, you might want to tell them about the new Mac virus that's corrupting LCD displays. Have fun!
