  • Why turn everyone in your mom's 1968 high school yearbook into cartoons? Because it's there, man

    This isn’t really gadget related, no, but I appeal to everyone’s geekish and nerdly enthusiasm for a project such as “Excelsior 1968” wherein Robot Johnny’s John Martz quite simply turned over 1,000 students in his mom’s 1968 yearbook into cartoons. He’s selling the finished product for seven dollars. You can see every single page on Flickr if… Read More

  • Voltron episodes come to Xbox 360

    I was really more of a Transformers fan, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t get my Voltron on. They were giant transforming robots after all, even if they were lions. Fans of the ’80s show can now download episodes from the Xbox Live Marketplace to watch on their TVs. They’re in standard definition, but they’re cheap: only 160 MS points, which is about $2.

  • Homestar Runner, Strong Bad WiiWare games soon

    Nice. I like it. If you’ve been aimlessly drifting about the world wide web for any substantial period of time, you’ve undoubtedly come across (and spent several hours on) Homestarrunner.com — a fantastical world made of wonderful Flash cartoons starring hilarious characters. In June, we’ll see the first of five episodic WiiWare games from the “Strong… Read More

  • Family Guy 'Cleveland' spin-off in the works?

    Wow. Apparently Seth MacFarlane and company are working on a spin-off from Family Guy tentatively titled Cleveland, starring the slow-talking walking stereotype Cleveland Brown. It’s unclear whether the series would be set in Quahog and/or if Loretta, Cleveland, and Cleveland Jr. would continue to show up on Family Guy as part of the storyline. I’d hope they’d still be part… Read More

  • Funny five-minute South Park-ish gadget movie

    This five-minute animated cartoon is, for all intents and purposes, a South Park episode waiting to happen. Hell, if Trey Parker and Matt Stone were so inclined, they could just order this thing up and plop it down on Comedy Central without changing much at all. Very well done by the good people at the Um-brella.com site. Everyone gets equal ribbing in this one; Nokia, Apple, and Microsoft. Read More

  • Women can't fly ships!

    Ignoring the crazy animation and gimpy storyline, feel free to fast forward for a bit of olde time 60s sexism. via BB Read More

Reruns of the cult favorite will switch from Cartoon Network to Comedy Central on 1/1/08. Oh, and the new episodes will be in HD. Stoked. Read More

  • Funny: 'Mr. C's 7 Signs That Your Kid May Be A Hacker'

    Parents, does your child display any of the traits from the following sequence of amusing cartoon drawings? If so, he or she might be a hacker. Nothing wrong with being a hacker, per se. Let’s just use those powers for good, not evil. The bigger issue here might be the patchy chin-beard consisting of two lone strands of hair. Shave ’em off, my man. Mr. C’s 7 Signs That Your… Read More

  • Futurama Makes Its Triumphant Return November 27

    I know this is neither gear or gadget, but it’s sweet nerd news and let’s face it, you people are nerds. Mark November 27 on your calendar and clear out your entire schedule because Futurama is making a return to the small screen. It won’t be joining Family Guy on FOX, though. Comedy Central will be its new home and the first four episodes will actually be released on DVD… Read More

  • Details On The Simpsons Video Game

    The boys over at Kotaku got a chance to spend quite a bit of time with the new Simpsons game that’s due out this summer from Electronic Arts. Aside from an awesome party with hilarious parodies of current video games (“Grand Theft Scratchy”, “Bartman Begins”), they say the game is very well done and includes plenty of creative input from the show’s… Read More
