R.I.P Steve Jobs

In honor of Steve Jobs passing away today, here’s a couple of his quotes that resonate with me.

“You’ve gotta find what you love”

“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Men In Black 3 To Feature Retro Aliens

Due out for release in May 2012, MIB 3 will include a time travel story. When asked about the types of aliens to be seen this time around the makeup and FX designer’s reply: “Space suits with fishbowl helmets and ray guns”. I can hardly wait :-)

Head on over to SuperHeroHype for the details.

Video Shows First Tool Use By A Fish

As seen on ScienceBlog, this video shows an orange-dotted tuskfish that digs a clam out of the sand, carries it over to a rock, and repeatedly throws the clam against the rock to crush it.

This is amazing to see a fish carry out a series of complex things like this and to plan out the steps.

New Geeky T-shirts

Sebastian from www.604Republic.com alerted me to some new tees now available.

The first one is called Beam This!, Batman vs. Star Trek? Please don’t make me choose one over the other in that battle.  :-) The description at the page describes it as “This poor red shirted bastard had no idea what he was beaming into. Apparently into a massive uppercut. ”

The next shirt is called Intoxicate and is described as “This robotic destruction machine decided that getting sloshed would be preferable to his usual battle cry of extermination.”. Could it be a cross between a Dalek and the drunkeness of Bender?

Zombie Head Bowlingballs

Like a lot of you I find adverts on TV to be interesting to examine both for the technological marvel and for the entertainment, but especially look forward to those for the pure geek factor. I ran across this cool advert on adweek.com regarding a promotion being run on the top horror channel on German TV – Street 13.

In the ad, bowling balls are replaced in the ball return tray with a grotesque, decapitated head that you have to lift by its bloody, vacant eye socket and deformed nostril.

How cool is that?

You can see more photos of the art work here at behance.net, view the video below.
