Random Thoughts For A View To A Kill Friday June 4, 2010

Tomorrow, I turn the dirty thirty. Because of which I’m working on another birthday post. But because I’m turning Thirty, I’m going to dedicate this Random Thoughts to my Irish cousins – for skewing my musical tastes for the past 26 years.


First – Do you own Photoshop? Do you want some tools to make your pictures GO BAMMM? Then you need to check these amazing Photoshop Actions.

Second – JESS3 And South Arlington V.A. For The Win.

It looks like local Arlington design firm, JESS3.com has hit it pretty big with their new BP Cares Firefox plug-in. (via dlebray)

Third – I know only a handful of people are vaguely interested in the NBA, but a curious thing is happening during this years Free Agent frenzy.

If you haven’t heard, this year’s Free Agent list is a who’s who of the NBA, with Lebron, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh all set to walk away from their respective teams and go to the highest bidder. But instead of just making the decision on their own, these three superstars (who all happen to be managed by the same Agents), are supposedly planning to map out a collective strategy. Which will ultimately change the NBA forever….ever…..ever…..eva.

Luckily, for three people vaguely interested in the NBA, the National Post has synopsis of what will probably happen during these talks.

FourthThe Oatmeal Striketh Again

How many Justin Biebers could you take in a fight?

Created by Oatmeal

Fifth – Alex Triebek is a national treasure.

Sixth – Good Lord, why didn’t I think of this!! Pride, Prejudice and Zombies the iPhone Video Game. (This statement also applies to the book)

SeventhHaters Gonna Hate


Ninth- Anyone who has the Kottke.org feed read has probably already seen this, but IF you’ve ever played a game of Sim City, Sim City 2000 or even Civilization you really need to look at this YouTube clip for the city of Magnasanti.

It is quite possibly the single most creepy and awe-inspiring video game achievement. Way creepier than the video of the kid finishing Super Mario Bros in 5 minutes.

Tenth – The 20 worst drinks in North America translated in to Fast Food.

Tenth – I swear this is the last public pimping I’d do for this, but if you didn’t know the corporation just launched it’s own customized Facebook Fan Page.

If you haven’t checked it out, please do. We’re already at 69 awesome, awesome friends and I really think you should also become our friend.

I swear it’ll be worth your time.
