- Photoblog: Plumbing Exploits
Posted in honor of my recent mishaps in the world of plumbing. This little shot was taken at the kid's museum over in Norwalk (Stepping Stones) which is in fact, fun for the whole family.Location:
- Reddit founders officially announce their departure from Reddit.
I'm a huge fan of Reddit - and you should be too. The content is great and there is always something fresh to look at in a variety of categories. The commentary is insightful and at times laugh out loud hilarious. Hopefully, nothing will really change (the founders make that quite plain in aforementioned blog post).

- A day at Disney World through the magic art of tilt-shift video.
Neat little video for those who happen to like Disney / artsy effects every now and again. There are some spots in the video where the effect doesn't quite cut it but I'll give them an A for effort this first time around.
- Netflix streaming coming soon to Playstation 3 consoles.
The bad news: PS3 owners will need to put a special Blu-ray disc in the game console, which will enable streaming via the Blu-ray's BD Live functionality. That's a departure from all other Netflix-enabled devices, which just have the Netflix option as a built-in feature.

- Eleven mediocre television shows with awesome theme songs.
Take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about the television shows you may have used to watch. The combination of DuckTales and Rescue Rangers still holds a special place in my heart (although not mentioned on said list). Hey, remember The Jets?

- Nickelodeon is now the proud owner of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.
The acquisition could be a huge coup for the iconic network, who during the 90's, peaked with franchises like The Ren & Stimpy Show, Rugrats, All That, Doug, among a plethora of others that defined the childhoods of 'mid-to-late 80's babies.'

- Apple reports that they just had the most profitable quarter ever.
This company is so innovative that they actually figured out a way to beat the economy. Kudos. Hey, why aren't you buying a laptop at this very minute? Get thee to the nearest Apple store.

- A gallery of huge holes in the Earth as seen from space.
If you happen to be big fan of looking at holes in the Earth that we as a species made then you'll probably enjoy the other holes that we as a species did not make.
- Yes, multiple Rubik's Cubes can make for some awesome pixelated art.
That version of the Mona Lisa displayed in the thumbnail only took 315 Rubik's Cubes to complete.
- A handy tutorial on how to make your very own fisheye lens.
Another title for this tutorial would have been 'a guide to recycling broken SLR lenses for use with your digicam' (not that there's anything wrong with that). Now excuse me while I scour eBay for a box of broken SLR lenses.

- Seven horrifying moments from classic kids movies.
Yep, there were definitely some strange moments in the world of Pinocchio (as illustrated by the thumbnail). Thank you Cracked for bringing up the painful memories of 'The Brave Little Toaster'.
- Nine free tools to put the fun back into your photography endeavors.
Lost the desire to break out the old point and shoot? Give some of these tools a spin and get those photographic juices flowing again. Besides, everyone loves a good tilt shift photo.
- Fifteen amazing cheese sculptures for you to gawk at.
A collection of some really detailed art made entirely out of the yellow stuff. It's sure to make your afternoon a little more... well cheesy. Golf clap.

- Google pulls the curtain back on their very own Building Maker.
We like to think of Building Maker as a cross between Google Maps and a gigantic bin of building blocks. Basically, you pick a building and construct a model of it using aerial photos and simple 3D shapes – both of which we provide.
