Yngwie F***ing Malmsteen unleashes the f***ing fury
on "I'll See The Light Tonight".
(Note: I mock, but it would take seven or eight of me in perfect synchronization to play that fast. Presumably it's because I don't have a guy in a furry viking helmet waving a sword in front of a radar screen to inspire me. Somebody wanna get on that?)

Music for One Apartment and Six Drummers
See, I'm pretty sure I was this guy's downstairs neighbour once. No wonder I don't live in an apartment anymore.

Proof that the mashup meme has gone too far--terrifyingly so:
Somebody has built robotic exoskeletons for cockroaches. Listen, buddy, next time you wanna combine Franz Kafka, Battletech and somebody's worst nightmare, howzabout just making a video or something?

Traditional American style executed with obsolete Japanese hardware. Somebody needs to build one of these full-scale--mind you, a '59 Toyota is probably pretty tiny, so you'd have to be Vern Troyer to actually fit in one with that radical of a chop.

Way back in my teenage years, I used to spend summers out at my grandparents' place in the idyllic hippieville of Nelson, B.C.
One of the many ways I loved to pass the time involved digging through one of my cousin's piles of pre-'80s Mechanix Illustrated-type magazines. There was something weirdly poignant about the mix of do-it-yourself ingenuity and overzealous faith in technology. Modern Mechanix fully groks the appeal of that era, the era when the future was a gleaming vista of jet planes, neon-lit martinis and, er, yodelling robots.
Hell of a dangerous time to be an actress, though.
