Cookbook by known Dude associate. Dedication is to “Donny, who like so many young men of his generation died before his time.”
Specialty accessory for watersports enthusiasts. Strap that fellow on over the old faucet, then turn the head (hey, gently now) to set it to e.g. “mist”, “jet”, “massage”, “flower pot”…2 notes link >
LARP Trek. Webcomic in which the crew of the Enterprise cope with a broken holodeck by playing something Geordi dug up: an “old-school role-playing game”.
Their first campaign: a space station adventured called Deep Space Nine.
Trailer for film that is based on, but wildly misunderstands and misinterprets, the text of Arlo Guthrie’s classic Thanksgiving tune, Alice’s Restaurant.
Starring Ryan Gosling as Arlo, Gary Busey as Officer Obie, and Christina Hendricks as Alice.

A family-friendly American dining restaurant franchise, with a gimmick: the restaurant contains actual horses.
Have a hamburger and a milkshake and also there’s an actual horse there!
Want an onion popper appetizer? No problem; also, an actual horse is standing nearby!
It’s your birthday? They’ll bring you out a cupcake with a candle in it, and also a waiter will put peanut butter on an actual horse’s gums so that it tries to lick it off and looks like its talking, and then someone will stand behind the horse and sing happy birthday and it’ll be like the horse is singing happy birthday to you for at least as long as the peanut butter lasts.3 notes link >
Dance-pad adaptation of Capcom zombie franchise.
Step your way through the directional-arrow-tiled halls of spooky Spencer Mansion! Do a quick left-right-up-down eighth-note pattern to pick up the green herb! Nail five double hops in a row to dodge Wesker’s attack in the Umbrella Corporation’s top secret dance labs!
Play as any of several Resident Evil protagonists. Chris Redfield can outskank any bro on the block; Ada Wong gets a tango bonus in her red dress; Jill Valentine is the master of pop-and-locking. A special “zombie dog” bonus mode encourages you to play on all fours, and also to leap through windows constantly.
DDRE is a lot like Typing of the Dead except with rhythm-game dancing instead of survival horror console-style zombiebothering rather than typing instead of arcade-style lightgun zombie railshooting, and also Resident Evil rather than House of the Dead. So basically as different from Typing of the Dead as a game could be while still being appallingly similar in both source material genre and subversive edutainment intent.2 notes link >

Japanese arcade dancer in which you engage in “competiversation” with various NPC opponents—a salaryman on the Tokyo subway, a geisha, a schoolgirl, Iron Chef Morimoto, etc.—by stepping on the correct dance pad arrows to fire off the words that construct an effective riposte to their latest rhetorical gambit.
Two players can play head-to-head, using a pair of dance pads to softshoe simplified discussions of a variety of topics. This will replace texting as the primary form of communication between many Japanese teens.
Further, TTC conversations will be used as a means of plain-sight encrypting communications to stymie nosey adults: the code can be employed in person through basic footwork, or deployed over traditional text chat media by typing sequences of <, >, v and ^ characters that can be decoded as footsteps by a conversant recipient.15 notes link >
