I’m trying to work myself back into writing shape for Lost’s premiere early next year, so I’ll start off slow with some links for your perusal on this fine Tuesday.
SI.com – A great article on Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett, who suffered what looked to be a devastating spinal cord injury in the opening game of the season, but has defied all odds to walk again. A must-read.
Green Team! – “Enviro-Tips from the driving force behind the environmentalist movement.” (not safe for work)
Battery Hack – A great way to brush up on your automotive skills while simultaneously saving a ton o’ money.
Skyway or the Highway – I wish I had enough faith in Buffalo’s leadership to think innovative, just plain cool stuff like this could happen. My fingers are crossed.
Valuable Intelligence – A disturbing glimpse at one of the most feared members of the animal kingdom. I felt a bone-chilling veil of frozen terror envelop me when I first saw those eyes. Erm.
åºƒå³¶ã‚¢ãƒ¬ãƒ³!!! – I’d like one channel amongst the 786 we have to choose from to feature nothing but Japanese television.
Desktop Tower Defense – The new web game that’s sweeping the nation. And by “nation,” I mean Jeff’s laptop.
HOW’D IT GET BURNED? – This man has an Oscar on his mantle. I do give him enormous credit, however, for that scene in Turd Ri-….er…Ghost Rider that featured a ninja chimp.
The Man in the Hat – Despite the involvement of whiny 20-something Shia Leboueueof, they had me at hello. When can we buy tickets?
Ninjas Walk Among Us – This one’s an oldie but a goodie; one of the original “greatest websites ever.” I think everyone’s website could benefit from more emphasis on the stealthy assassins of Hokkaido.
Optimus Lame – The best part of the video is its’ final 20 seconds, when Optimus “leaps” into action. Pretty impressive.
The Wire – The best show on television returns for its fifth and final season January 8th. I’m hoping it leaks out like season 4 did, so I can watch it all in one marathon viewing session. Don’t let the lack of exposure the show gets lead you to think it’s not worth watching. On the contrary, I think the series is one of the best and most important shows ever to grace the airwaves.
The Sports Guy – Bill Simmons’ latest column featuring–wouldn’t you know it?–a page full of links! I’d love to just steal them all for my post, but I must give credit to his pop-culture genius.
