TV These Days…

The link to tech or gadgets? None. But hey, you watch TV, right? This made us snort for a second or two, so you might enjoy it too.

Carry on.

About 20 Times A Day

I do this with the fridge too. I open it, stare inside, close it… then do it again a few times.

Ugh… it’s a long Monday.

“It’s Tuesday today!”

Oh. Right.

I should get a job where I have to wear pants…

Google Is A Little Prudish, Not That We Didn’t Already Know It

googleb

Tee hee… Just try searching for this. It’s funny.

Not that it’s anything new, that Google won’t autocomplete your searches for a long laundry list of words it deems offensive or obscene. The iPhone seems to have the same ducking feature, and it’s sort of patronizing… and so is censorship in general. But we’re not trying to make some kind of point here, we’re just laughing at the comic. We’re really just overgrown kids here, at OhGizmo! HQ.

Childhood Dream Come True: Design Your Own Superhero Comic Book

Design Your Own Superhero Comic Book

 

There’s no denying that super heroes are super cool. However, nothing beats having something– or someone — that’s truly your own, though. So if you’ve been longing for a super hero to call your own, then it’s time to design your own superhero by getting this kit. It contains everything you’ll need to create your own custom comic book, including: cardboard stencils, a blank comic book, an activity book, tracing sheets, and project activity sheets.

You’ll get tips on how to layout and story-board your comic, among other things. As for the characters and storyline– well, I leave that up to you. The Design Your Own Superhero Comic Book kit is available online for £9.99 (about $16.)

The Anatomy Of Shows

anatomy-of-shows

It’s no secret that TV shows follow a formula. Ever wonder what it is, for various shows? This is John Atkinson’s take on that. We think it’s particularly accurate, regardless of how cynical you think we might be. And that right there, is the reason we download or stream anything we decide to watch.

In Light Of The iPhone 6 Announcement…

huge

Which one of you does this hold true for? I’m so ensconced in Apple’s ecosystem, I have trouble considering the hardware superiority of other handsets and dismiss it offhand. Yes, I’ll be getting an iPhone 6 Plus, and may consider selling a limb to do so…

I am a sad, sad individual.

LEGO Set To Launch Massive 1,869 Piece Batman Tumbler Kit

Screen Shot 2014-07-24 at 12.07.40 PM

Chris Nolan’s Tumbler was but one of the many highlights from the latest Batman trilogy, but boy was it memorable. So much so that it makes perfect sense for LEGO to create a replica kit. This, however, is no ordinary LEGO kit. You’re looking at a massive 1,869 pieces that assemble into a 5 inch tall, and 15 inches long version of the car. It comes with two limited edition minifigs of the Joker and Batman, so this might add yet more appeal to a kit that, despite everything, will still have to justify its astronomical price tag: $199. It’ll be available in September.

This Happens Way Too Much

movies

I suppose it’s a sign that I’m getting older, but this comic hits home. I still remember a time when this didn’t happen. See, I tend to hang out with a lot of friends considerably younger than me (one of the perks of not having a “real” job mean that you don’t feel pressure to go through the normal stages of life at the same rate as your contemporaries), and I’ve noticed that they see nothing wrong with this. Sharing their attention between twenty different things is normal. That’s all they’ve ever known! A new generation of kids is growing up without the notion of one-on-one time, without the ability to focus on one thing for an extended period of time, and without the ability to just… sit there and do nothing. That’s inconceivable. And while I’m guilty of obsessing over my phone as much as the next guy, I’m old enough to remember the days without them and I sort of miss them.

Sigh.

Nothing can be done, and my quota of bitching has been filled for the day. Thank you and carry on.
