1997 Delta II Rocket Explosion

3 08 2009

Ever cried over some money you spend on something useless? I suppose we all did at some point in our lives…
Well, to make your concience better (or even worse if you’re and american tax payer), here’s the explosion of a Delta II Rocket that was taking a $45 million GPS satellite in it:

Oooh, and just imagine the fortunate 24 car owners that saw their vehicles turned into a pile of molten metal and glass on that parking lot?
Most expensive fireworks show ever? Unfortunately not.

Star Wars Sound Effect with Slinkies

3 08 2009

If you still have metal slinkies, here’s a video showing how to do some laser rifle shooting effect from Star Wars:

In Brazil, finding a slinkie is something of a rarity… even more if it’s a metal one.

Philip Glass – Metamorphosis Part Two

3 08 2009

Another minimalist piece by Philip Glass.

Simple yet powerful music.

You know those songs that for some reason are part of your life and will follow you forever?
The ones you always get back to on happy and sad days, like an old friend?
Well, this is one of those for me, and part of a series of posts I’m calling my permanent playlist.

I Can Has Cheezburger – LOLcat Gathering!

3 08 2009

I always thought LOLcats and I Can Has Cheezburger was one of those Internet things that attracts lots of random people who would never meet in real life…

Guess I was wrong!
The only thing lacking in the event is, as you probably asked yourself too… CATS!
Still pretty nice though…

Visitor Q (NSFW) (Gore)

2 08 2009

Visitor Q is a japanese disturbing gore movie by Takashi Miike which I only read about, but don’t really mean to watch. 😛

As you can see from the trailer, it doesn’t even had many scenes so strong and disturbing the movie is.
It has strong sexual content, so absolutely not intended for minors, but I have my doubts it’s even intended for normal human beings! xD
Never watched it, I know a couple of other Takashi Miike movies like Audition and Koroshiya Ichi, but after reading the full sinopsis of Visitor Q, I decided not to watch it… 😛
So, what’s the purpose of the post? Well, if you are a gore movie fan with stomach enough to watch one with such themes, have a good time with it! xD
This is also an interesting “dark side” of japanese cinema most people don’t really know.





Survive Style 5+

2 08 2009

Another crazy creation of the new japanese cinema school, featuring british actor Vinnie Jones in the role he plays best: A thug contracted killer.

Different from most movies I presented so far though, Survive Style 5+ is less on the gory, disturbing or overall “adults with strong stomach” side, and more on the “weird” sense.
