imon Pegg and Nick Frost shaun of the dead empire magazine 20 photo shoot

Actors and actresses imitate their own iconic characters for film magazine photo shoot

Empire trotted the globe to deliver you 27 of the planet’s biggest stars, recreating iconic performances from two decades in film, for a unique 20th birthday celebration…”

Empire’s own gallery viewer sucks, luckily there’s an alternate place to view the pictures.

“What started out as an exercise in model building and photography, ended up as a dream-like reconstruction of the town I grew up in. It’s not an exact recreation, but it does capture the mood of my memories.”

Whoever designed Barcelona played way too much SimCity. A Google map proves the point further.

Streetview Finland – Where were you when Finland was Googled?

A blog collecting snaphots from Google Street View, which recently released summery scenery from Finland. Lots of sign language and such.

I have nothing against art on LSD blotters, but putting Obama’s face everywhere is getting plain creepy.

Instead keep playing that one note whoah it tastes like a laser show.

Weird Google Street View Scenery

Related to an article with the usual panicking about Google Street View.

Protip for complainers: build a fucking fence if you don’t want your genital warts photographed when you walk naked in your suburban garden.

Yes, Google and the likes are really privacy issues in the scale of spanish galeons on monster truck wheels.

High resolution, freely available street maps with metadata are, however, some of the most useful types of services ever, and someone building this doesn’t even enter into the “ethically dubious” category.

Shut up and start looking at the real issues, such as real time video surveillance and online data mining.

That Will Buff Out (vehicle mishaps)

Another FAIL type blog, this time with weird car accidents. I accept this one thanks to its lack of annoying captions and dismal memories of myself doodling mainly car crashes when I was a kid. Link to example, whole sequence.
