I actually missed this one. It will be shown next month (explained below) here in the US but it actually came out in Japan earlier this summer (June)–and it never crossed my eyes. GitS (Ghost in the Shell) is a fun collection of both series and movies, generally with a deep storyline as well as a fun score (OST/soundtrack). In my opinion, the original movie is in my top 5 list of classic Japanese animation (anime) films that no anime fan should ever miss.
It’s hard to believe a new one came out without my knowing of (continue reading…)
A few days ago, The Las Vegas Mobsquad celebrated one million views on their “I’m a Cow Song” video on YouTube. A video that was created a few years ago for a young sibling (based on an ideas from that sibling) has officially reached “holly crap” status!

I haven’t posted much lately yet (again). Been far too busy with work and climbing the ladder of life. Haven’t given much anything else a thought other than getting outdoors for hikes and exploration to clear the mind in between, and spending time with friends and family.
I figured I would share this. I came across it by chance and when clicking on play, I planned to only watch the first few minutes, but wound up watching the entire thing. Mumford and Sons is a great band filled with talent and solid mixing (they put out some great albums, always ready to take on the audiophile world of things).
Below is the entire video (continue reading…)Tweet
The Las Vegas Mobsquad is back again with another Cow Series video, this time “The Spinning Cow” has taken to the screen with up to an hour worth of………….spinning…..cow.
Hey! Judge for yourself! Share below in the comments. The video is here: (continue reading…)Tweet
Ready for something odd? Something a little different from what you are used to? Big into unique/artistic thinker pieces? Your welcome:
The “I’m a Cow Song” passed the 500,000 view mark which makes it the most popular video the Las Vegas Mobsquad has ever produced both directly or jointly on YouTube. With 50% of ad proceeds going to one of the member’s younger siblings college fund, she is going to have a chance at actually going somewhere as I’m sure the video will probably start heading to a million and blow up from there.
Make sure to keep passing it around wherever possible. Tweet it, FB it, share the link here on YT…Plurk it, Myspace it (do people still use that?), blog it, email it, or tattoo the url to your arm! Let’s send Alexis to Harvard!
As quoted from the video’s description:
“You need not delete your social networks or destroy your cell phones, the message is simple, be balanced, be mindful, be present, be here.”
Makes a good point. I have lost a lot of friends I used to hang out with to the world of the internet. People I used to hang out with weekly, reduced to being lucky to see them within a few months+. Been on dates where the girl was more interested in her cell phone screen than the conversation.
This is why I hike, this is why I travel, this is why I try to drag my friends out and spend so much time with family, this is why I dream, this is why I try to chase those dreams and take a break from the digital world when possible. I enjoy the digital world, and agree that it will help us evolve technology-wise; but we can’t let go of what makes life most livable….the act of being able to share it with someone….in person.
Now this is pretty cool. None of the schools I went to did anything like this. They kind of mosh it up in there (kind of).Tweet
Pretty interesting! Someone went far out of their way to make a working model that not only has a spring loaded blade (well, a fake wooden one at least) but also a crossbow that can actually fire! (as well as spin back to it’s “away” position). Last year I put something together for Halloween themed around Assassin’s Creed. After the holiday I got my hands on a wrist blade that works, but this one kind of makes it feel a little lacking in the fun department. Nice job!
Of course, if you aren’t as crafty when it comes to fabricating your own cosplay weapon, there are plenty of Assassin’s Creed wrist weapons available online (examples) that you can use for your costumes.
