Italian donkey: What time is it?

The current weather makes me want to just lie down in the sun and do literally nothing. I wouldn’t move a bit. Neither does this guy…

Jesus Payback

Are you sitting around at home too much?

I know i do. Well, not just at home. I am also at work, but its basically the same thing: there is a desk, a computer and i am sitting in my chair in front of that. Sitting, sitting, sitting. What i am doing might change depending on where I am, but no matter what that might be, i am sitting. That is why once every couple of hours i need a little inspiration to imagine I am doing things outside of the digital world and on my feet. Inspiration that might make me think “Hey, that’s EXACTLY what I always wanted to do!!” – and hopefully I am going to do that too later that week.

So i did what everyone would do nowadays: I went online (while sitting) and I was looking for awesome inspirational videos. I ended up with a handful of adventurous outdoor activity clips… interestingly, every one of those is showcasing some people going downhill in one way or the other (what that means is to be interpreted by YOU).

Creativity

This week’s top creativity inspiration for me goes to the people of Cyclecide. Those guys are plain awesome when it comes to the ‘just-do-this-thing’ mentality. I like the spirit and the circus appeal. Just would love to see them traveling around the country too… Continue reading

Just a normal day…

Do you also have those days sometimes where everything seems to go wrong? Well, how about a day where everything you try actually works?! Watch how that would be like:

I do not claim this is NOT an average day for them, but what if it wasn’t? What do you think how many hours of video those guys accumulated until they finally got the intended results? I admire their patience in that case, otherwise i admire their skills! Oh and the choice of music fits excellent too. Thumbs up!

The Saga Of Biorn

“BiĆ“rn, an old Viking, is determined to reach Valhalla, the warrior’s afterlife full of excessive drinking and debauchery. To gain entry he has to die honorably in battle, but he discovers that the right death isn’t so easy.”

Some guys wanted to go on a road trip and bought a mini-van for 300$ but they never left the parking lot… here is why:

If i ever go on a world trip (and i hope i will soon) then it should be clear what i am going to do to share with everyone afterwards! These guys are my favorites so far…

What would you do if you went on a world trip?

P.S.: I know those have been around the net for quite some time. I never really mentioned them though – so here is the long due respect…

Portal Done Pro – World Record

This is the most awesome Speedrun I have ever seen: Portal in 9m 25s (World Record)! The guy is just blazing through the levels in a way where – even if you played the game – at many points you will have no idea where he is. Of course this is mainly due to the fact that he is exploiting the even craziest glitches in the game engine. He literally broke out of the intended game path, like the test subject broke out of glados’ test path during the portal storyline. He even presents some of them that are not required for speed at all, but just to show off his skills and the possibilities with the engine (for example how to reach the room with the cake)…

Even more amazing though i found the commentary videos that he provided (making the speedrun even more awesome). In those he explains exactly which glitches he used and demonstrates live (and proofing no hacks used), how difficult it must have been to do the levels and find the glitches. You can watch him trying 100s of times while recording for the commentary video. Man, I admire his patience!! A definite must watch for anyone into computer games, game engines (or game development in general) and portal geeks of course: First part of the commentary (1 of 15):
