It’s a FRIDAY!
So hey guys, there are these awards. No not the MUBA’s. It is the SA Blog Awards. Now, you know since I’ve recently become a web celeb I feel that you guys bloody owe me something… or maybe… like yeah. Would be cool I guess.
I’ve been looking at the categories, but before you go vote for me, here’s a brief musing on them. Most Controversial Blog?
Twindie.net might not be controversial, but you know what would be ironic? Is if you guys voted for me for Most Controversial Blog and I end up winning it – because I controversially won the most controversial blog. It’s like an epic Back to the Future paradox.

Hope your stomach muscles survived this.
After seeing Pacman grace the frontpage of Google I remembered some classics reinterpretations of Tetris on the web. Have fun wasting a few hours!
1) Zero Gravity Tetris
Inspired by the XKCD cartoon, this Zero Gravity Tetris is nigh impossible. I got so close to scoring points though. Apparently you can score points. Good luck with that though. You might punch your screen before then.
2) First-Person Tetris
This version of Tetris puts you into the zone of the pieces themself, when you twist them, you twist along with it. Gets hella confusing later on. Warning don’t plus drunk or if you’re prone to motion sickness, it will not go down well.
Holy sweet moley of big things, this is big. I’ve yet to have the patience to get one line in this monster of a Tetris game. Go on. Try it. Yeah yeah, you think you can do it. Try it. Once you screw one small piece, the rest is history. Next thing you know things you’re just dropping tiles everywhere making the weirdest unintentional pixel art.
Ah, I wish I did. That would be the perfect ice breaker, you can just walk up to anyone and say “America” or “Yes, we can” and you’re not sleeping alone that night. But apparently this guy does look like Obama. You know, one day, I’d like to meet this man, just so that I can tell my kids that I met Obama… ‘s doppelganger.
But then I realized something else. This guy has the perfect face. He could be anyone’s doppelganger.
Frodo and that guy
But then it hit me. Frodo would then look like Obama.
However, that guy looks more like Kevin James (via that Will Smith movie)
So therefore, Kevin looks like Obama.
And Frodo looks like Kevin James
Damn these people are lucky.
You know, since Facebook is making us likers, I’ve decided to create the weirdest oddly specific things to like on Facebook. Since you know to creep out your friends. P.S. – If you’re reading this via RSS, come on through to the site.
1) Seeing myself in the reflection of highly reflective aviator glasses.
2) The snare drum on 1:18 on Kelly Clarkson’s Since You’ve Been Gone.
3) The sesame seed that fell off my KFC burger.
4) Pretending to write in cryptic spy ink when the ink dries up.
5) Watching Lord of the Rings while thinking of how cool it would’ve been to have met Frodo.
After the break is 5 more.

It was a late Sunday afternoon with a beautiful sunset casting its colours on chilly sharp wispy clouds and then… It was unbearable. It pains me to talk about it… but, suddenly websites started dropping like flies. Twitter was first. Then Facebook. Wam, bam! It came out of nowhere like a newfound craze for fag vampires. I tried to resuscitate the sites. F5, F5, F5 and another one pressed harder just make sure the Internet understands me… F5! BREATHE! But nothing happened. Connections were lost. Cars were still driving, but it puts to me tears thinking about the horror they’d receive at home.
For a moment, we were left with only mobile internet. The last salvation of communication. However, back at home, the bastion of our civilization was still alive, but only barely: Google. It helped us through this tough time, providing us with nourishment. Wikipedia also seemed to work. God bless knowledge. Another, horrible side-effect of this Internet Outage, was the lack of procrastination material. It felt odd. I couldn’t function without procrastination. My friends on Twitter, were mere small smudges on phone and those Facebook photos, teases with a memory of times gone by. Good times. Good times.
Now, I’m saved. Three days later. South Africa might be the final resort in 2012, but for now, it was the 90′s all over again. My condolences to those still affected. By midnight tonight order will be restored. Listen for radio broadcasts and imagine you’re in a disaster movie until then. Stay safe. May Virus Scans be with you.
Ok… is this for real? My Buur Vrou. Either Piet is one creepy mofo, or this is just extremely boring staged voyeurism. A part of me wants to believe that there are creepy guys out there willing to post stuff like this online. Another part of me wants to think that this is one overly complex roleplay game between a couple. You tell me?
Also, for some reason, just ’cause it’s in Afrikaans makes it kinda funny.
