Internet Gems
 
Just curious what interesting stuff you find during your surfin' sessions. Post a link to anything you find interesting and would like to share.

I just read a really beautiful blog entry. That's about it right now.

Poetry. (Flash)

This cool site that gives an estimate on your writing style compared to some prominent author. I keep getting Cory Doctorow over and over, and after reading an excerpt, I'll have to say I agree (slightly). Another time I was compared to Vladimir Nabokov, the (in)famous author of pedobear book "Lolita," and another time I was compared to Margaret Mitchell which was... weird.

YES. I saw that like two weeks back. I got the guy whatshisface that wrote Fight Club.

I was hoping for Douglas Adams.

Nitz 08-15-2010 10:49 PM

I got Arthur C. Clark. That was using an admissions essay, though. At some point, I will try again using a fiction story.

Edit: I just resubmitted the same thing and it gave me H.P. Lovecraft. So either its a gimmic that selects at random, or they've changed it / added authors since the last time I did it.

Nicky 08-16-2010 11:28 AM

Hmm. It wasn't that way for me. It was consistent every time even with different submissions, even when I tested them multiple times to see if it would change, it didn't.

Also, this:

Steel wool lit on fire, if I'm not mistaken.

I'm going to go trawling for good stuff to post here.

Dudeo 08-16-2010 02:14 PM

Small gallery of can't unsee.

Gives Me Hope, another website in the vein of FML.

Mr.doob, an awesome site. It's a collection of small projects. Even cooler with a webcam and/or a touchscreen.

New batch of links.

Born Magazine. A site filled with literary projects and style. Tons of OC.

8 Bit Peoples, an amalgamation of pixel art and chiptunes projects.

Sporcle

Seems boring from the frontpage, but in reality it is an addictive quiz website that requires great memory.

Nicky 08-21-2010 10:36 PM

This song and video. For me it is highly addictive. It's a belt, by the way.

Why doesn't she fasten it or take it off, I wonder? Also, I'm curious if people who know Japanese can actually understand what she's singing.

That's just how she was drawn. There are some pictures where it's fully on but I think the tail-like effect of the half fastened belt suits her character more. Also, I doubt it. She's an UTAU which is basically a free version of Vocaloid so it sounds less realistic.

Ryu-Nacho 08-22-2010 08:33 PM

I can understand what she's saying well enough, but I don't know Japanese, so it's not doing me much good.
By the way, fun fact: Popipo is a Japanese onomatopoeia for bones being broken (or so I've heard).

Nicky 08-31-2010 03:02 PM

This is one of the cutest funniest blogs I've ever seen. Though unfortunately you have to sign in to see it.

when i broke my toe, i didn't hear a "popipo."

You should see a doctor about that.

Or he could just Do like this guy...

Ryu-Nacho 09-07-2010 11:44 AM

For some reason, I don't think pointing a gun at some dude and having him cuss at you would help with a broken toe.

Supa Fool 09-07-2010 04:38 PM

And that reason is?

Nitz 09-08-2010 03:30 AM

You're welcome.
