Android Voice Commands are totally a ripoff of Siri, right?

3 Jan

I don’t dislike Siri, in fact I think she’s a great addition to the army of useful things that the iPhone has at its disposal. However I do need to Apple fanboys and fangirls to stop acting as if nobody has ever done anything before Apple has done it, especially when it comes to voice commands.

When Siri debuted, every person I know who got an iPhone 4s raved about how awesome it was, and how my little Android phone was missing out on this technological breakthrough. I was a loser… nay…. THE ENTIRETY OF ANDROID USERS were losers because we didn’t have Siri to help guide us through our phone usage.

But we did.

No we didn’t have Siri, but our girlfriend Voice Commands has been good to us. We’ve been together since August of 2010 at LEAST, and anytime I needed her she was there to help me.

So no Siri, I will not leave my girlfriend Voice Commands for you and your legion of adoring fans. Stop calling me at 3am. It makes you look like a creepy stalker.

WHY HASN’T ANYONE SHOWED ME THIS BEFORE?!

So apparently some genius over on youtube by the name of legolambs made this awesome opera song and video about Super Mario Bros. Just so you know, this is what happiness feels like!

Left 4 Dead Fan Vid: What The Hell Just Happened?

24 Dec

(Found via i09)

 

What the hell just happened?

One thing I love about the internet is that there is an infinite amount of content. Because of things like youtube, and because thanks to technology almost anyone with an idea and a computer can make a decent 6 minute movie, you don’t have to wait for television or film to come out with something you’d want to see, all you have to do is find it yourself. Which means things like Fan Vids like this pop up.

I like Left 4 Dead as a video game, so the beginning of this video drew me in, however right about the time the Gears make their cameo appearance (wait no, Scorpion is kinda weird too) I go from being intrigued by the interesting mashup to overstimulated by characters from games I play that shouldn’t know one another. It didn’t tell me it was going to be Valve vs Capcom vs Bungie, so when that happened it pulled the rug right out from under me.

However disorientation aside, it was a good Fan Vid. And the way the guy with the shotgun handled his weapon made him my favorite character in the whole thing.

#BlowShitUp GI Joe: Retaliation

19 Dec

First of all, let’s talk about everything that is right with this trailer.

1. The Rock is in it. If you want a movie to look BAMFy, you need to make sure you have a greased up Dwayne Johnson holding a big ass gun (or a baseball bat, or any weapon really).

2. Although Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn’t anywhere in the trailer, they managed to replace Marlon Wayans with explosions. I’m a girl who loves to watch action movies where they blow shit up, and this looks like it will satisfy that need for me.

3. Wenworth Tatum is still in the movie, but he’s not all over the trailer. He’s familiar enough so that fans of the first movie (all one of me) understand that this is a sequel, but there’s still enough change in the movie that it may actually be good (don’t worry I’m not holding my breath on that one).

4. Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes is already an interesting and distorted sounding song, however in the trailer they distort the song even more to highlight the lovely explosions that are happening around the previous mentioned greased up Dwayne Johnson. Even if I had no desire to watch the movie, I’d watch the trailer again for the music (and The Rock) alone.

5. As much of an older gentleman as Bruce Willis is becoming, anytime you can get the man in a wife beater with a gun to say sarcastic-curmudgeonly-yet-witty lines will always be good times.

 

I don’t even need to mention the added bonus of ninjas sword fighting from ropes on the side of a mountain.

Men In Black 3: Men In Blacker

19 Dec

So, a couple of weeks ago this came out and my insides turned over in the worst possible way:

Another Men In Black movie? That seems odd since MIIB came out in 2002 and the first MIB film came out in 1997, it seems kind of a stretch for the folks who made this movie to think there would still be loyalty income to squeeze out of the pockets of moviegoers.

Then I watched the trailer again and realized I’m one of those loyal moviegoers that will probably go see this movie. I mean come on, sci-fi comedy where there is a 100% possibility of someone blowing shit up?! Of COURSE I’m going to see it. I’m not expecting it to be Oscar worthy, however I do wanna see fun special effects aliens in order to escape my boring regular life, and in all honesty that’s all I can really ask of any movie nowadays.

Calvin And Hobbes Snowmen Video

17 Dec

As sort of a Happy Birthday to my mom (who introduced me to the awesome that is Calvin and Hobbes, and that sense of humor we have) I’m just gonna leave this here.
